Not the Van Helsing from Bram Stoker’s Dracula or Kate Beckinsale’s romantic adaptation. The protagonist Vanessa Van Helsing is put into a coma by a vampire attack that lasts years, only to awake when bit by a vampire for a second time. This series turns out to be quite better than initially suspected.
Set in a futuristic apocalyptic world where earth’s sustainability is nil, humans live on a craft, which is comprised of 12 former international space stations maintaining 3 generations, until life on the craft becomes unsustainable like earth. Government aboard the craft send 100 juvenile delinquents to earth to test if the levels of radiation are habitable, only to have several of them murdered by wildlife and humans that survived what was thought to be the end of the world 100 years ago. The 100 makes for a great series which touches on death, conceptions of the self, sexuality, feminism, the need to belong, and survival.
This adaptation of the Archie comics follows the entire gang to Riverdale. Veronica’s the new girl, Betty’s in love with Archie, Archie’s in love with music, and Jughead is a broody writer. When one of their classmates, Jason Blossom, is mysteriously murdered, the entire town is turned upside down. The series is released episode my episode so it’ll have you on the edge of your seat for weeks to come.
Set in current day Paris, France, this movie shows an anthropologist searching for The Philosopher’s Stone, which according to alchemy holds supernatural powers. She commissions a French adrenaline junkie who explores caves to guide her through the catacombs of Paris in search of the coveted stone, only to have several members of the team murdered by those who protect the stone. Literally through hell and back, a few members make it back to reality.
The White Helmets
This documentary just won an Academy Award so you know it’s gotta be good. The emotional film follows first responders on their mission to save victims from the rubble caused by daily airstrikes in Syria.
One day the rich will leave the earth – uttered from the mouth of a Billionaire I heard him say this with my own two ears, of course, it was 5 am in Paris after a night of enjoying splashes of champagne. Elysium is about the rich leaving a devastated earth taking with high technology that can even cure cancer. Matt Damon, the protagonist, attempts to help some people get to Elysium for health treatment. In all, it really is a battle of the classes which attempts to shoot down space crafts filled with humans from earth seeking a better life and medical treatment.
With three seasons of the Netflix Original series available for maximum binge-watchability, you’d be a fool not to start this series while we’re (hopefully) nearing the end of cold weather season. Each episode profiles a different world-renowned chef for an incredibly interested cooking experience that would put your homecooked meals to shame.
While a little slow in the beginning, this movie accelerates quickly toward the end. An ex-wife invites her ex-husband alongside several other friends to a dinner she hosts at home, only to kill all but 2 guests in the end because her and her new boyfriend, as well as their friend, subscribe to some murderous cult that believes murder is ending suffering. This movie makes for an interesting watch.
Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates
If you’re in the mood for a little laughter, this comedy is worth your time. Zac Efron teams up with Workaholics‘ Adam Devine for a hilarious film about two brothers on the hunt for wedding dates for their sister’s wedding in Hawaii. Also starring Anna Kendrick and Aubrey Plaza, this movie pairs perfectly with a couple of beers and an extra-large pizza.
When you’re a rock band and a Neo-Nazi venue books you a gig last minute in the middle-of-nowhere America, you may want to decline before you even show up. While I don’t want to give too much away, some events unfold in the green room which make this movie, a movie. Suspenseful and intense, this movie makes for an on-the-edge excitement.
In all, a film more about inequalities within society. Snowpiercer has to do with hierarchies and the rich wanting to rule over the poor. Set in the future, a group of humans live on a train that constantly travels a frozen world via linked tracks because the earth’s atmosphere and climate were destroyed, making life outside the train uninhabitable. Some characters even seemingly worship the self-sustaining self-fueling engine that drives the very entity in which they reside.
If reality competition shows are more of your thing, Ultimate Beastmaster is for you. The new international game show has 108 competitors from around the world (18 from each country, 2 country reps per episode) battle head-to-head through challenging obstacle courses dubbed, “The Beast”. Each episode crowns a “Beastmaster” who compete in the final episode for the title of Ultimate Beastmaster.
This wicked tale set in 1630 New England chronicles the life of a Christian family of 6 bewitched and visited by The Devil in a form that we may suspect is him. The language within this film is quite beautiful in how the characters use old English and make biblical references. It is a great watch with an unsuspecting end.
