Netflix Reminder: The 3rd & Final Season of Bloodline Starts Streaming Today

Memorial Day Weekend isn’t the ideal binge watching TV weekend, but that might change with the third and final season of Bloodline arriving today. While Netflix originals like Orange is the New Black & House of Cards might get more attention, Bloodline has been a great show over the past two seasons. It sports an incredibly consistent case and centers around an issue a lot of people can relate to: family drama. While the Rayburns family drama might be a little more intense than your normal family drama, it makes for riveting TV. I’ll be sad to see it go.

Trailer Alert: GLOW

The coolest part about GLOW, the newest Netflix original series from the minds who gave us Orange is the New Black, is that it’s all based on real life. GLOW was a women’s wrestling organization in the mid to late 80s that was unlike anything that came before it and hasn’t come close to being replicated since. I watched a documentary GLOW: The Story of the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling a few years ago and it opened my eyes to this wonderful universe that I never knew existed, so I’m glad that Alison Brie, Marc Maron and everyone else in the cast will be bringing it back to life. While the original GLOW stars were relatively unknown, some of them went on to mainstream success. Lisa Moretti, known to WWE fans as Ivory, was a staple of the Attitude Era Women’s division in the late 90’s and early 2000s while others like Olympia Hartauer and Trudy Adams wrestled for the AWA and WWF in the 80s and 90s.

GLOW is a fascinating story, and I’m happy to see it being told again. All episodes will be available June 23rd.

Trailer Alert – Game Of Thrones Season 7 #GOT

Shit is going DOWN. Game of Thrones was never going to win any awards for speedy character and plot developments, but it’s such a beautifully shot and written series that no one seemed to mind. Now that we have a finite number of episodes left , it seems that the pace of the show is going to ramp up. The cast is on record saying that the pace of season 7 far exceeds any previous seasons, and the latest official trailer backs that up. The most interesting characters to follow for me are Cersei and Jaime, as the Lannisters literally blew shit up last year to retake control. Conspicuous by their absence are the White Walkers, but Jon Snow does make mention of the ‘Great War’, and Davos pleads for teamwork (something that every character is known for) because it won’t matter who takes the Iron Throne if they’re all skeletons. ICE SKELETONS. This is no longer a drill: we’re only a little over 7 weeks away from the season 7 premiere.

Trailer Alert – Spider-Man Homecoming

This is the last Spider-Man trailer before the movie hits theaters on July 7, 2017. Enjoy!

This trailer shines a light on the Stark Spider Suit (My name for it) while keeping The Vulture in the shadows. With this being the last trailer before release, I am super happy with how Marvel approached these trailers. They built excitement without revealing too much plot. Well done.

P.S. – Young Lando sighting!

Trailer Alert – Battle of the Sexes

I would try to entice you into watching this trailer, but all I have to say is “Steve Carell and Emma Stone”.

I think Steve Carell’s versatility as an actor is SEVERELY underrated. Like shockingly underrated. This movie should help him with that and help Emma Stone break out the the typecast she has found herself in. “Battle of the Sexes” showcases The 1973 tennis match between Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs.

Trailer Alert: War Machine

The Netflix takeover continues to roll full steam ahead, and we’re only two weeks away from War Machine premiering on the streaming platform. This movie had me at ‘Brad Pitt war movie’ but this new trailer has a lot to offer. Brad Pitt seemed to summon a few of Aldo Rayne’s mannerisms for his portrayal of fictional General Glen McMahon and this trailer has all the signs of a great performance. Rounding out the cast is Anthony Michael Hall, Ben Kingsley, Tilda Swinton and one of my favorite young actors Emory Cohen (The Place Beyond The Pines, The OA). War Machine beings streaming May 26th.

Trailer Alert: Orange is the New Black Season 5

The last time we saw the inmates of Litchfield Penitentiary they were reeling over the “accidental” death of Poussey Washington, one of the best and most versatile characters on the show. I put the word accidental in quotes because while her death wasn’t a purposeful act, it was easily preventable. Warden Caputo and Officer Piscatella had been escalating tensions all season, and the death of their beloved Poussey at the hands (or knee) of Piscatella was the last straw. Season four ended with the inmates revolting against the people in charge, and judging by the season five trailer above, it picks up right where four left off. Will the women of Litchfield finally come together as one and force change or will Poussey die in vain? I can’t wait to find out.

Season five starts streaming on June 9th.

Trailer Alert – Marvel’s The Defenders

Hold onto your butts…

Ok, THAT looks awesome. Having been slightly (putting it nicely) disapointed by Iron Fist, this is exactly what I needed for the MCNU (Marvel Cinematic Netflix Universe [I’ll bill you later, Marvel]) to pull me back in.

While I still think Danny Rand’s character is tone deaf, this trailer brings back all the positive emotions I have from these Marvel Netflix shows. Can’t wait for this to hit Netflix; this is going to be a one-day binge FOR SURE.
