This is our life now, we rely on streaming for our entertainment. Not because TV doesn't show a lot a great stuff, but it's just so much better to watch something that you are A. able to pause and most importantly B. binge!
So pick your poison, get your favourite snacky things ready, put on the subtitles (so you can follow it over your crunching) and enjoy endless hours of entertainment from your couch, because let's be honest, we won't be leaving the house anytime soon.
The craziness isn't over just yet!
Just when you thought it was safe to venture back onto the streaming giant after binging Tiger King (you know you did), Netflix has one last card up their sleeve by releasing one more episode on the 12th of April.
Since film releases are being pushed back until the end of the current COVID-19 business, we felt it was probably not a good idea to publish a list of movies that may not see the light of day until way later this year. So instead, we thought "well, everyone is streaming these days, why not fill them in as to what is heading their way?" And so, this was born!
Welcome to the "Rise of the Stream" era!
This month I am really excited for more than a few of these releases, especially The Hunt with my favorite from the It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia gang Glenn Howerton - that looks like it's gonna be playing a very Dennis Reynolds-esque character, Vivarium gives me big mindfuck vibes and could also possibly be hilarious, not to mention the hype for newcomers Carlo Mirabella-Davis with Swallow and Rose Glass with A24's Saint Maude on their first full length flicks. Will definitely be watching A Quiet Place Part II; I am very curious to see if John Krasinski's Horror will live up to the amazing 2018 first chapter.
Full disclosure, I had to add some movies I couldn't care less about not only for SEO reasons, but I think is fair to put a bit of everything in the mix.
It's time for that "new year, new me" bullshit... am I right? While I think that's all a bunch a crap (If you want to start a diet, quit smoking, whatever - DO IT NOW!) one of my resolutions for the new year is going to see more live shows (concerts, comedy, theatre, anything!), and movies.
To give you an example of how behind I am, I still haven't watched It Chapter Two or Doctor Sleep, and I have seen Alita: Battle Angel only because it was on the plane on the very long flight to Australia. But in 2020 things have to go back to normal, so let's have a look at what's coming out in January.
