Here are our thoughts:
(Netflix) is a British-Spanish mystery thriller series created by Álex Pina. The 10-episode first series was released on Netflix on 15 May 2020.
Personally I loved this Series, it was shot in Ibiza so great location of course and it does have a story line it’s not just about drugs and the cartel. I would give it 6/10.
Into the Night – 2020 1 Season 6 Episodes (Netflix)
Synopsis: When the sun suddenly starts killing everything in its path, passengers on an overnight flight from Brussels attempt to survive by any means necessary.
My review: I did love this series it kept me interested all the way through. 7/10.
The Sinner: Season 3 (Netflix)
The Woods (Netflix)
Breaking In – 2018 Thriller (Netflix)
Shaun Russell, a mother, fights against four criminals hiding inside a high-security house in order to save her children.
My Review I would definitely recommend this movie 10/10.
Other Review: The thriller is set at a remote Wisconsin location, where a group of thugs holds two kids hostage in a high-security house.
In The Line Of Duty (NETFLIX)
One of the first releases of 2020 in the UK is the new thriller, In The Line Of Duty. (Netflix) It’s been picked up for British release by Signature, and the film features Aaron Eckhart in the lead role, alongside Giancarlo Esposito, Ben McKenzie and Courtney Eaton. 2019
My Review: Thought it was a good movie with a sense of humour whilst a serious situation was at hand. 6/10.
Other Review: [A]ction fans looking for a lot of forward motion could do worse than this lively, increasingly over-the-top feature-length chase.
The unforgettable story about the resilience of the human spirit and the transcendent power of love.
Starring Shailene Woodley (Fault in Our Stars, Divergent films) and Sam Claflin (Me Before You, The Hunger Games films), ADRIFT is based on the inspiring true story of two sailors who set out to journey across the ocean from Tahiti to San Diego.
My Review: Based on a true story, lovely romance, bravery, resilience and determination. You’ll require tissues 10/10.
Emergence (Ninenow) is a 13 episode TV Series worth bingewatching in my opinion. 8/10
Synopsis: Jo, a police chief investigates a case involving a young child found near the site of a mysterious accident. As she raises questions as to how and why it happened, Jo is drawn into a conspiracy larger than she ever imagined.
Vox reviewers wrote and I concur:
Emergence is basically a Lost-style mystery series about a strange little girl and the small-town police chief who takes her in, and I’ve loved the way it has doled out answers to its biggest questions much more quickly than I ever would have expected it to.
But what has really kept me watching is the show’s terrific cast, and I think if you check the show out, you might be similarly drawn to their performances. Emergence is not yet a great show, but if the show can rise to the level of its cast (and if ABC gives it the time to do so, given its very low ratings), it just might get there.
