Need to watch a good movie? We have searched through all the new movie pics of the week and have come up with 5 which should appeal to all.
If nothing is there this week, don’t forget to check out the full list of titles coming next week. There a bunch of great movies such as Jurassic Park Trilogy, MANK, and Kung Fu Panda 2 to name but a few.
Now let’s take a look at our favorite new movies on Netflix in the US (or in the case of Netflix Originals globally).
Christmas History: Part Two (2020)
Genre: Adventure, Comedy, Family, Fantasy
Director: Chris Columbus
Cast: Kurt Russell, Goldie Havan, Judah Lewis, Kimberly Williams-Paisley
Runtime: 112 min
The biggest movie highlight for us is undoubtedly Kurt Russell. Is a return to the North Pole as the sequel to The Christmas Chronicles of 2018.
The film has a familiar feel throughout but introduces us to Mrs. Clause as Christmas is potentially in line once again.
In my opinion, the film holds its own compared to the first and although I found the main antagonist to be a bit over-the-top, the film managed to keep me on my toes, considering how well Kurt Russell plays Santa.
If anything happens I love you (2020)
Genre: Animation, Short, Drama
Director: Michael Govier, Will McCormack
Author: Michael Gowier, Will McCormack
Runtime: 12 min
awards: 9 wins and 5 nominations.
Originally we were going to recommend this film because of its easy consumable length, but this is a huge injustice. This animated special manages to pack as much punch as 3-hour long feature films.
The animated special takes you through an emotional journey of a family in mourning the loss of a child. It is heart-wrenching and very well put together. Do not miss this gem.
Don’t Listen (2020)
Genre: Horror, Supernatural
Director: Ángel Gómez Hernández
Cast: Rodolfo Sancho, Ana Fernandez, Ramon Baria, Belen Fabra
Runtime: 97 minutes For
fans of foreign cinema and foreign horror in particular, Netflix scooped an incredibly well-received Don’t List Friday.
The film follows a man fixing a newly purchased house but finds it haunted and works with the help of a paranormal expert.
Although well-received, there are some criticisms that it may be perceived as being too predictable.
Dance Dreams: Hot Chocolate Nutcracker (2020)
Genre: Documentary, Family
Director: Oliver Bokelberg
Cast: Debbie Allen
Runtime: 80 min
If The documentary is after you, then the rave is being reviewed for this new documentary which is set in a somewhat festive spirit and takes you behind the scenes of the award-winning Dance Academy.
During the 80-minute family-friendly dock, you’ll see what makes this dance academy and what their live productions use, the pliers.
In addition, it is specifically and technically the first title to come from Shondaland of Shonda Rhimes that produced the documentary. His next title is set for next month Premiere of Bridgerton.
Fruitvale Station (2013)
Genre: Biography, Crime, Drama, Romance
Director: Ryan Coogler
Cast: Michael B. Jordan, Melonie Diaz, Octavia Spencer, Kevin Durand
Runtime: Min 5 Min
Awards: 38 wins and 55 nominations.
As the week was a bit short on new films (and we can’t recommend watching Hillbilly Alley for the fact that we are the month). Some have gone back through additions, we don’t think they deserve attention. One of these films is Fruitvale Station which returned to Netflix on 12 November.
Here’s what you can expect if you’ve never seen it:
“This dramatic rendition of a real-life tragedy recalls the final hours of Oscar Grant, shot by San Francisco transit police on New Year’s Day, 2009 Tha “
