Best New Movies and Shows on Netflix for February 25th
Vikings: Valhalla (Season 1)
Genre: Action, Adventure, Drama
Cast: Pollyanna McIntosh, Frida Gustavsson, Jóhannes Haukur Jóhannesson
Writer: Jeb Stuart
Runtime: 56 mins
We’ll kick off with the big new title of the day and possibly the entire month. We’re referring to the big new spin-off series to HISTORY channel’s Vikings in the form of Vikings: Valhalla.
Here’s what you can expect if you decide to check out the first set of episodes (three seasons have been commissioned) over the weekend:
“In this sequel to “Vikings,” a hundred years have passed and a new generation of legendary heroes arises to forge its own destiny — and make history.”
Juvenile Justice (Season 1)
Genre: Crime, Drama
Cast: Kim Hye-soo, Kim Moo-yeol, Lee Sung-min, Lee Jung-eun
Runtime: 62 mins
For fans of Korean content, Juvenile Justice lands on Netflix today in full. In this court drama series, you’ll see a tough judge balancing her morals and ethics as she gets wrapped up in young people’s court cases.
Reviews are already strong for this series and although we don’t expect it to do big numbers, we’re sure fans of K-dramas will find something to love here.
A Madea Homecoming (2022)
Director: Tyler Perry
Cast: Tyler Perry, Brendan O’Carroll, Tamela J. Mann
Writer: Tyler Perry
Runtime: 105 min
We’ll say straight up that if you don’t like any of the previous Madea movies by Tyler Perry, this will do absolutely nothing to change your mind.
With that said, if you are a fan of previous Madea movies, there’s plenty to enjoy here in this latest rendition. The format sees Tyler Perry play multiple absurd roles at home with all the family coming together to celebrate her great-grandson’s college graduation.
As someone who’s never seen Madea before, I’m astonished this is still a thing but must confess it got a few giggles out of me.
