Let’s take a quick look at a couple of highlights for today that are the brand new Netflix Originals:

The Serpent (Limited Series)

Genre: Crime, Drama, Thriller
Cast: Tahar Rahim, Billy Howle, Jenna Coleman, Ellie Bamber

Everyone loves a hot serial killer right? Well, Netflix stats says so and today, Netflix finally got the BBC co-production featuring Jenna Coleman and Tahar Rahim.

They both put in stellar performances as we follow a notorious serial killer Charles Sobhraj who preys on backpackers in Asia.

If you want to hear what I personally thought of The Serpent, check out last week’s podcast from Must Watch: Netflix Edition where we discussed it at length.

Sky High (2020)

Genre: Action, Adventure, Crime, Drama, Thriller
Director: Daniel Calparsoro
Cast: Miguel Herrán, Carolina Yuste, Asia Ortega, Luis Tosar
Writer: Jorge Guerricaechevarría
Runtime: 121 min

Featuring Money Heist star Miguel Herrán, this new action thriller out of Spain is set to spawn a franchise with a TV series already in the works.

Here’s what you can expect diving in:

“After falling for Estrella, Ángel, a mechanic from the Madrid suburbs, dives into a world of heists and becomes the target of a relentless detective.”


Concrete Cowboy (2020)

Genre: Drama
Director: Ricky Staub
Cast: Idris Elba, Lorraine Toussaint, Jharrel Jerome, Caleb McLaughlin
Writer: Ricky Staub, Dan Walser
Runtime: 111 min

Featuring Idris Elba and Stranger Thing’s Caleb McLaughlin this movie follows a teenager who dives deep into a well-known urban horse-riding culture with his estranged father.

Early reviews suggest this one is a long slog that’s good to look at but not much substance. It’s currently sitting at 5.1 on IMDb with just shy of 400 reviews.
