1BR is now on Netflix in the United States

Three new titles have hit Netflix US over the weekend plus we’re going to take a complete recap of the past 7 days to see what’s new and what’s been trending. 

In case you’re looking for what’s coming up next week, the headline title of the week is the first two seasons of Cobra Kai but there are also a number of other highlights too.


1BR (2019)

Genre: Drama, Horror, Thriller
Director: David Marmor
Cast: Nicole Brydon Bloom, Giles Matthey, Taylor Nichols, Alan Blumenfeld
Writer: David Marmor
Runtime: 90 min

This weekend’s headline title is 1BR which is a horror that scooped best film at the Fractured Visions Film Festival and also scored Nicole Brydon Bloom best actress at the Nightmare Film Festival.

Reviews are fairly down the middle with both critics and audiences both generally favorable.

Here’s what you can expect diving into the movie:

“Seeking her independence, a young woman moves to Los Angeles and settles into a cozy apartment complex with a disturbing sense of community.”


Baewatch: Parental Guidance (Season 1)

Genre: Reality, British

Netflix has imported a number of British reality series over the year with Glow Up and The Great British Baking Show being the biggest examples.

Now, we’ve got a brand new prank/dating show where couples go on romantic getaways with their families sitting just outside the frame calling the shots of the getaway.
