Netflix Pick of the Month for March 2022

Pieces Of Her

I for one am all in on streamers lastly circling again round to adapting current novels into restricted sequence as a substitute of relying solely on “original” content material. Amazon Prime has Bosch and Reacher, Netflix has been producing Harlan Coben diversifications abroad, and now the most important streamer has joined the Karin Slaughter fan membership with Pieces of Her (premieres March 4th). The eight-episode sequence is the story of a younger girl whose brush with violence reveals a world of secrets and techniques hiding behind her mom’s in any other case regular exterior. On the run and with extra questions than solutions, she units out to discover the reality. Toni Collette performs the mother, and fellow Aussie Bella Heathcote performs her daughter, and proper there are two excellent causes to watch. Even higher, whereas I’m solely a few episodes in to this point it’s already an exhilarating, well-acted experience. Here’s hoping the development continues and we begin getting some restricted sequence diversifications of Dean Koontz novels like Lightning, The Bad Place, The Husband, and so on…

New Netflix Films/Series!

The Adam Project

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau has at all times been an attention-grabbing actor, however his finest work has seemingly come post-Game of Thrones as he begins stretching new muscle tissue. Seek out the latest A Taste of Hunger (2021) for a sampling of his performing chops, after which chase it with Against the Ice (premieres March 2nd). The roles couldn’t be extra completely different, however this latter movie is a standout as each a ardour challenge — he co-wrote the screenplay — and a dramatic thriller about survival in opposition to unbelievable odds. It’s based mostly on a real story too.

From lethal seriousness to light-weight style shenanigans, our subsequent decide is The Adam Project (premieres March eleventh). It’s the newest team-up between director Shawn Levy and star Ryan Reynolds, and whereas it seems to be much less purely industrial it’s most probably one other straightforward to swallow, unchallenging piece of leisure. Reynolds performs a time-traveling pilot who crash lands and should rely on the assistance of his personal pre-teen self to save the longer term. Expect flash and cheese all through, however that’s not at all times a nasty factor.

Noomi Rapace has been on one thing of a tear in recent times retaining busy and focusing fairly a bit on style initiatives. What Happened to Monday (2017, Close (2019), Lamb (2021) — they might not all be winners, however they’re not often uninteresting decisions. Her newest is Black Crab (premieres March 18th), a sci-fi/motion movie a couple of small squad of troopers on an necessary mission in a post-apocalyptic world. It’s director Adam Berg’s function debut, however the premise has sufficient promise so we’ll see what he and Rapace can conjure right here.

It might sound off-brand for me, however I’m really a fan of Bridgerton‘s first season. Will that love continue for Bridgerton: Season 2 (premieres March 25th)? Can’t say for positive but as I’m only some episodes into the brand new season, however to this point it feels as if the sass and drama have been ramped up whereas the sauciness has been toned down. That’s not a criticism, simply an statement, and the present’s actual energy continues with some partaking characters (Team Eloise!) and commentary on the patriarchal occasions.

A King/Darabont Double Feature!

The Shawshank Redemption

Frank Darabont hasn’t directed a function movie since The Mist (2007), and it’s a rattling disgrace as the person “gets” Stephen King like few filmmakers do. He tried and failed to get an adaptation of The Long Walk going, after which he obtained mired down in authorized wranglings over The Walking Dead. Sad stuff, however not less than we do have his three stellar King movies. The first, after all, stays a gem as The Shawshank Redemption (1994) is a type of movies that simply works on all counts with terrific performances, a improbable rating, and a narrative of hope and resilience that earns cheers by its finish. The haters can suck it, this film is perfection.

I’m admittedly not as massive a fan of The Green Mile (1999), however the situation stems extra from King’s supply materials which by no means fairly finds its groove throughout these serial installments. Darabont’s movie helps significantly, as does the casting of Tom Hanks within the lead function, and the story of a prisoner on dying row containing multitudes of magic finds its approach on the display. Moments of cruelty are paired with actual kindness, and whereas it’s much more of a low-key journey it’s nonetheless one value taking.

The Oldest New Arrival to Netflix


Viewers trying to stretch out their Stephen King time on Netflix can cap the marathon off with John Carpenter’s Christine (1983). Far much less beloved than the movies above, it’s one thing of an under-appreciated film within the filmographies of each King and Carpenter. An awkward teen buys a possessed automotive and shortly falls below its management, and whereas themes of bullying, masculinity, and extra weave all through, it’s the visuals and soundtrack that drive Christine to greatness. From the automotive “healing” itself stay in-camera to pictures of it roaring ablaze via the streets, it is a visceral slice of horror that retains its energy to thrill.
