Best New Movies and Shows on Netflix for August 25th, 2022
Rilakkuma’s Theme Park Adventure (Season 1)
Genre: Animation, Adventure, Comedy
Cast: Mikako Tabe, Lana Condor
Netflix has picked up another series featuring the adorable Rilakkuma, with his last appearance on Netflix being back in 2019.
This new 8-episode adventure sees the cuddly bear heading out to a theme park that will soon be closing down.
Fans of To All The Boys will recognize Lana Condor’s voice in the series that’s a beautiful Japanese-produced animated title.
Genre: Biography, Drama
Director: Joshua Michael Stern
Cast: Ashton Kutcher, Dermot Mulroney, Josh Gad
Writer: Matt Whiteley
Runtime: 128 min
In the last decade, there were two major Steve Job biopics and although most would argue Universal’s 2017 effort was the best, there’s still some merit to the 2013 entry starring Ashton Kutcher.
You’re no doubt familiar with one of the founders of Apple but if you need a refresher, this movie is a great entry.
At the time of release, IndieWire’s Eric Kohn said:
“The movie is constantly at war with attempts to provide an honest portrayal, almost as if its subject were reaching beyond the grave to steer any negativity back in the direction of a hagiography.”
That’s Amor (2022)
Genre: Comedy, Romance
Director: Shaun Paul Piccinino
Cast: Riley Dandy, Isaac Gonzalez Rossi, Daniel Edward Mora, Bryan Craig, Arlene Tur, Kimberley Drummond
Writer: John Ducey
Runtime: 96 min
As of late, Netflix has had a string of hits regarding its romantic titles, with Purple Hearts doing exceedingly well in the top 10s.
Hoping to continue that trend is That’s Amor which has gotten very little marketing from Netflix so far (not even an official trailer is available).
Here’s what you can expect from the rom-com, which is both in English and Spanish:
“After Sofia loses her job and breaks up with her boyfriend, it seems like life can’t get much worse — until her mom signs them up for a couples’ cooking class. But when dashing Spanish chef Matías walks in, things suddenly start to look up.”
