This is one of only a handful of original shows that Apple has released on their new streaming service thus far. Shows like "The Morning Show" and "Servant" have exceeded my expectations as the other shows to join the platform's list of original content. "Defending Jacob" starring a retired Captain America continues Apple TV's trend of watchable shows, but is not flawless.
Mark Ruffalo stars alongside Mark Ruffalo in HBO’s newest series, “I Know This Much is True.” Ruffalo goes to a new depth in this show, departing from his well-known true crime roles. Such films like David Fincher’s masterpiece, “Zodiac” where he plays a do-good detective, the 2016 best picture winner “Spotlight,” and his latest foray into the genre in “Dark Waters.”
There was a big launch today, and no I am not talking about SpaceX’s first manned mission to outer space. Today, HBO launches their new streaming service—HBO MAX. This is the newest service in an ever-growing list of media giants introducing streaming services. In the past year Disney and Apple made their foray into the booming streaming industry, forcing me to decide from even more services on my Roku home screen. Instead of spending thirty minutes on Netflix deciding what to watch, now I spend an eternity choosing between which streaming service to dive into—a first world problem—I know.
What do you get when you cross the “Good Place” with “Black Mirror?” The answer: Greg Daniels’s newest comedy series “Upload.” While you may not be familiar with his name, his work is a different story. Daniels started writing in the early nineties for “The Simpsons” and “King of the Hill.” He then adapted “The Office” for American audiences—the show Netflix subscribers around the world are praying does not get removed. Daniel later went on to start the “Parks and Recreation,” led by Amy Poehler as an overly optimistic small-town politician. The show includes a stellar ensemble cast and made Chris Pratt a household name before the blockbusters.
What is K-pop? K-pop is known to be the next biggest thing in today's world. Their fandom has been growing reluctantly, and many K-pop groups and artists have even collaborated with American artists, won American awards, and performed at the biggest music festival (Coachella). They seem to be the hottest thing all over social media, so it's your time to get to with the bandwagon and learn who and what K-pop is.
The story focuses on events taking place in Baghdad in 2003 during the Iraq War. Sérgio Vieira de Mello spent his career brokering piece deals with foreign leaders on behalf of the United Nations. He was a humanitarian-peacemaker, who often went against the grain, leading to both successes and failures.
“The Platform” is not for everyone. Cannibalism, brutal violence, and downright depravity may be tough for some to stomach. Luckily, for those intrigued enough to give it a chance, it is available on Netflix now. By the looks of it, people have been curious as it has floated around the top 10 streams for the past week.
Among the “non-essential” businesses affected by the Coronavirus is the film industry. Although Hollywood is just about the last thing on anyone’s mind, productions are at a stand still and hardworking employees are losing their jobs. While the “above-the-line” workers come to mind first—screenwriters, directors, actors—the majority of employees are “below-the-line” such as electricians, boom operators, assistants, dental prosthetics, caterers, the list goes on. Like in every industry, these people cannot afford the shutdown that A-list, Oscar-attendees can.
