Close (Netflix)

Being a long time fan of Noomi Rapace from the “Girl with the dragon Tattoo” series (Millennial series) This movie about her being a female body guard was pretty interesting to me. How this bodyguard had to take care of an heiress that has just inherited control over her fathers million dollar business. British movie but something on my list

Polar (Netflix)

This Netflix movie looked like another version of John Wick but with one of favorite foreign actors Mads Mikkelsen.  An assassin that is on the verge of retiring is sent on his last mission only to be set up by his employer so they won't have to pay him his millions in severance.  he employer gets into a very bad turn events when they are dealing with one of their best and in the mean time, the assassin has his demons he is dealing with that he will eventually have to confront.  

Russian Doll (Netflix)

Amazing short Netflix series about a woman for some reason keeps dying on the day of her birthday.  The humorous ways she dies and the way she tries not to die takes you on a crazy trip into this Russian Jewish woman in New York.  Very diverse with the characters as well as clever clever dialogue.  Absolutely worth seeing.  Here's my Review.

Bird Box (Netflix)

As a recommendation for Alicia and I to see, we made a decision to check this out over the holidays. Compared to the box office hit “A quiet Place”. This was supposed to give you the same feel and tension of that movie. The difference with this movie is the creatures in Bird Box make you kill yourself if you see them as oppose to creatures hunting you down if you make a sound. The main highlight of this movie is Sandra Bullock performance and John Malkovich which plays his crazy self as usual.

When a mysterious force decimates the population, only one thing is certain -- if you see it, you die. The survivors must now avoid coming face to face with an entity that takes the form of their worst fears.

Bird Box is a 2014 post-apocalyptic novel and the debut work of Josh Malerman, The book follows a woman who must find a way to guide herself and her children to safety despite the potential threat from an unseen adversary. The story is partially told via flashbacks and takes place during three different time periods

Daredevil (Netflix) Season 3

So the Daredevil series. I wasn’t a big comic book fan of his but he always showed up with some of the characters I liked. So I was familiar with the origin and a bit with the Frank Miller series as well. I jump in on the 3rd season even though I seen them all as they released. I go over it on my own because of my Marvel obsession and how i follow almost anything  is released of Marvel Characters.  Here's my thoughts.

 

"Daredevil" follows Matt Murdock, attorney by day and vigilante by night. Blinded in an accident as a child, Murdock uses his heightened senses as Daredevil to fight crime on the streets of New York after the sun goes down. While Murdock's day job requires him to believe in the criminal justice system, his alter ego does not follow suit, leading him to take the law into his own hands to protect his Hell's Kitchen neighborhood and the surrounding communities

Iron Fist Season 2 (Netflix)

Alicia and I were very skeptical about this second season of Ironfist. So we were in no rush to sit down and watch it. Luckily it was only 10 episodes. So we checked it and out prior to this. This Marvel Netflix series was the worst of the bunch. Now we have something to really talk about. Thanks to new directors, writers and choreographers. We see a pretty good series.

The second season of the American web television series Iron Fist, which is based on the Marvel Comics character of the same name, follows Danny Rand / Iron Fist, a martial arts expert with the ability to call upon the power of the Iron Fist

Anon- Netflix

I sit down and review this Netflix movie called Anon short for anonymous.  A sci-fi thriller i thought would be pretty interesting and very relative to the privacy issue going on the present day with almost everything.  We go back to an amazing writer who produces and directs his own stuff and I do a single review of this movie because Alicia fell asleep on it. 

In the near future, private memories are recorded and crime has almost ceased to exist. But in trying to solve a series of murders, troubled detective Sal Frieland stumbles upon a young woman known only as "The Girl." She has no identity, no history and is invisible to the cops. Sal realizes this may not be the end of crime, and it could be the beginning of it

Altered Carbon (Netflix)

Alicia and I sit down and watch the 10 episode sci-fi series Altered Carbon which blew us away with the concept and new way of seeking immortality in the future.  Outstanding tech and visual sets.  This is one on the most interesting and controversial shows dropped on Netflix.

More than 300 years in the future, society has been transformed by new technology, leading to human bodies being interchangeable and death no longer being permanent. Takeshi Kovacs is the only surviving soldier of a group of elite interstellar warriors who were defeated in an uprising against the new world order. His mind was imprisoned for centuries until impossibly wealthy businessman Laurens Bancroft offers him the chance to live again. Bancroft's request of Kovacs is to solve a murder -- Bancroft's. "Altered Carbon" is based on Richard K. Morgan's cyberpunk noir novel of the same name
