Most of the best movies added to Netflix arrived just in time for the weekend. One to look at is Two Distant Strangers, the shortest film on the list, but it will undoubtedly have the biggest impact on the minds of subscribers who tune in to watch it this weekend.
Here are the best new Netflix movies this week:
Two distant strangers (2021) N
Principal: Travon Free, Martin Desmond Roe
Genre: Short, Drama, Science Fiction | Runtime: 32 minutes
Fused: Joey Bada $$, Andrew Howard, Zaria
The Academy Award nominated short film is not afraid to stop, which resulted in a jaw-dropping, raw clock. It is not difficult to see why the short was nominated for an Oscar, and while the story itself may be another variation of Groundhog Day, it would have been interesting to see what Travon Free and Martin Desmond Roe would have done with a feature film cut from history .
Graphic artist Carter James relives the same terrible day over and over while trying to return home to his dog, only to be killed by a police officer in an endless cycle of violence and prejudice.
Thunder Force (2021) N
Principal: Ben Falcone
Genre: Action, adventure, comedy | Runtime: 105 minutes
Fused: Melissa McCarthy, Octavia Spencer, Jason Bateman, Bobby Cannavale, Pom Klementieff
Arguably, the most unexpected pair of superheroes is the comic pair of Octavia Spencer and Melissa McCarthy. The superhero comedy is likely to be one of the most watched Originals this weekend.
To combat the super villains that terrorize the world, scientist Emily Stanton develops a serum that gives the average person superhuman abilities. But when their distant best friend Lydia accidentally takes the serum, the pair join forces to become the world”s first superhero team.
Night in paradise (2021) N
Principal: Park Hoon Jung
Genre: Crime, Drama, Thriller | Runtime: 132 minutes
Fused: Uhm Tae Goo, Jeon Yeo Bin, Cha Seung Won, Lee Gi Young, Park Ho San
We are expecting great things from Park Hoon Jung”s Night in Paradise, and we hope that the K-Drama crime will be one of the best Originals to be released on Netflix this year.
When gangster Tae-Soo tries to leave his gang, his actions lead to the murder of his sister and nephew. Fleeing his former crew, Tae-Soo arrives at Jeju Island, where he meets Jae-Yoon, a terminally ill woman who has given up on life.
Alexander Revisited: The Final Cut (2006)
Principal: Oliver Stone
Genre: Action, biography, drama | Runtime: 175 minutes
Fused: Colin Farrell, Anthony Hopkins, Rosario Dawson, Angelina Jolie, Val Kilmer
In total, there are four cuts by Alexander, with “The Final Cut” ironically not being the final cut, as the “Ultimate Cut” was released several years later. Although not one of the most historically accurate films in history, its giant $ 155 million budget makes it a great show that does its best to bring one of the world”s ancient empires to life on the screen.
Despite his youth, King Alexander of Macedonia became one of the greatest military leaders in history when he expanded his kingdom into an empire conquering most of the known world.
