We are back with another list. This time focusing on new Netflix arrivals that have just arrived or getting released in March. I have thrown in a few movies that I have put on the back-burner because of poor reviews etc. Still, they might be worth checking out now that they’re on Netflix. I hope you enjoy the article.
CAPONE – 25th February
Capone stars Tom Hardy in a semi-biographical movie about legendary gangster Al Capone. The film focuses on Capone getting dementia and being tormented by his past and the crimes he committed.
There was a huge buzz surrounding this movie when the first pics of Tom Hardy were released. Then when the movie finally released, it got butchered. Make your own mind up and watch it on Netflix. At least the make-up looks great!
US – 28th February
This one ain’t for me, but that doesn’t mean some of you guys won’t like it. Us is from director and writer Jordan Peele and the follow-up to his hugely successful hypno-horror Get Out
A family on vacation are terrorised by what looks like evil versions of themselves.
ALICE – 1st March (Series)
There has been no slowing down in amazing content from Asia, imparticular, South Korea. We have so many great, dark dramas like Strangers From Hell, Voice, Signal, Partners for Justice, Stranger…I could go on and on.
Another thing that keeps popping up in South Korean crime dramas’ is time travel and that is what we have with Alice.
A detective investigating a group of murders and possible serial killer comes into contact with time travellers.
Netflix have just announced that they plan to spend a staggering 500 million dollars on South Korean content in 2021.
THE ART OF SELF DEFENSE – 4th March
Starring Jesse Eisenberg, Alessandro Nivola & Imogen Poots, The Art of Self Defense is an oddball comedy. The film focuses on a guy who starts to learn karate to defend himself after being attacked by a group of thugs. He enlists in a local DoJo run by a charismatic sensei.
SENTINELLE – 5th March
I really like the sound of this one. Sentinelle stars Olga Kurylenko (Centurian, Quantum of Solace, Oblivion) and is directed by Julien Leclercq (The Assault).
We seem to have a simple revenge premise that has been used countless times. Someone comes back from the army to seek revenge on a fallen loved one. It is rare that we get a female in the lead role, so really looking forward to this one.
SHE DIES TOMORROW – 10th March
She Dies Tomorrow sounds like another viral outbreak movie, only with a twist. A girl believes that she is going to die the next day but we soon learn that her fear is contagious and anyone she comes into contact with also believes they’re going to die the following day.
DEALER – 10th March (Series – France)
Those of you that ain’t a fan of the found-footage genre, then you will probably wanna give this one a miss. However, if you are a fan of the hand-held shaky-cam, Dealer sounds very interesting.
The series focuses on a group of filmmakers who tread into dangerous gangland territory to make a Hip-Hop video for a rapper and end up becoming targets by the gangs.
THE SISTERS BROTHERS – 12th March
Dark comedy western starring John C Reilly and Joaquin Phoenix. Two assassin brothers, Eli and Charlie Sisters set out to assassinate a man who stole from their boss
Based on a novel by Canadian author Patrick deWitt
PET SEMATARY – 12th March
The recent remake of the classic Stephen King story. To be honest, the reviews have been pretty bad for this and that is the reason I haven’t checked it out yet. Still, it should be worth a watch on Netflix. Something to turn the brain off to.
A sequel to Pet Sematary has also just been announced.
WHO KILLED SARA? – 24th March (series)
Described as an intense thriller, Who Killed Sara? might just be the new crime series everyone will be talking about.
After spending 17-years in prison for the murder of his sister, a man gets released with revenge on his mind. He rejoins a crime family and plots to take down the ones responsible for the murder of his sister.
That is it for this list. I hope you have been hooked up with some good future viewing. As always, thanks for reading.
