It’s the end of another month and we have some great entertainment to share with you this week. We’ve had some fantastic releases so far this month but this week, 27th April 2018, we have another 31 new titles for you to check out. That includes 13 new movies, 12 new TV series, three new documentaries and three new comedy specials. We’re going to recommend our favourite three out of the whole list and give you some insight into each.

If you had the chance to be part of a society that has the best out of life, would you take it? Would you be strong enough to go through tough challenges and decisions to get there? Would you be willing to risk your life in order to achieve your dreams? There’s only 3% of the population who go to Offshore, the ‘better’ part of the world. 3% (2018) season two became available on Netflix this week and many questions are likely to be answered after we were left on a cliffhanger at the end of season one. The show is set in Brazil and features what it really means to work in a team, to build trust in people, and to rely on yourself. If you enjoyed The Hunger GamesBlack Mirror or Divergent, you might enjoy this show as it has a similar vibe to it. It’s about being part of something great, but realising that there are so many more problems lurking under the surface.

Having a baby is a challenge. You lose sleep, your social life and sometimes your sanity. There will be days when you feel exhausted, confused and lonely. But there will also be days when you feel joyous, proud and whole. Either way, you need people around you to support you. The Letdown (2017) is a show all about a mother of a 2-month-old baby who joins a parenting support group to help her grow as a mother. Along the way, she meets some intriguing friends who are all struggling with their own challenges and changes. The show features what it’s really like to be a parent – and not just the good parts. It’s witty, honest and comforting. Season one has seven episodes available to watch, all at around 30 minutes long.

If you woke up one morning and found out you had supernatural powers, what would you do? Would you use them for the greater good? One man develops powers in the film Psychokinesis (2018) and realises he can do so much more than simply move objects without touching them. Behind the powers, there’s a man who wants to help his daughter. He’s a superhero but he’s not living in a city where there are loads of villains. His parenting is at the heart of his powers, even if it takes some time for his daughter to understand and forgive his past mistakes. This film makes you feel happy, sad and all the other emotions in between.
