BECKY (2020)

Genre: Thriller

Kevin James is traditionally known for his roles in comedy movies however made an excellent transition into the horror genre (similar to how Vince Vaughn did with Freaky).

Switching gears now we move into the kids genre and this movie headlined by Russell Brand.

The movie debuted on Sky TV and now arrives on Netflix down under. It’s an E.T-Esque story where four children come across a wish-granting creature while on vacation.

Batman: Soul of the Dragon (2021)

Netflix Australia still gets lots of DC and Warner Brothers content and that continues today with the release of this martial arts animated feature film set in the Batman universe.

Here’s what you can expect from the story:

“When a sacred artifact is stolen, Bruce Wayne suits up and sets out to bring together his former companions in martial arts training to get it back.”

IGN were overall praising of the animated feature film saying that the cast is solid although the story can often feel lacking.
