Best New Movies and Shows on Netflix Today
Speed Kills (2018)
Genre: Action, Crime, Drama
Director: Jodi Scurfield
Cast: John Travolta, Katheryn Winnick, Jennifer Esposito
Writer: David Aaron Cohen, John Luessenhop, Paul Castro
Runtime: 102 min
Let’s be honest, John Travolta movies in recent years have hardly been top-tier and if you haven’t enjoyed any of his recent output, Speed Kills is unlikely to change your opinion of him.
Nevertheless, there are plenty of reasons to watch this over-the-top crime drama from Saban Films. It’s adapted from the Arthur J. Harris book and sees Travolta plays Ben Aronoff, a mobbed-up motorboat racer who helps move millions of dollars worth of drugs into Miami before drawing the ire of the DEA and the mafia.
Dead End: Paranormal Park (Season 1)
Genre: Animation, Adventure, Comedy
Cast: Zach Barack, Kody Kavitha, Emily Osment, Alex Brightman, Clinton Leupp
Writer: Hamish Steele
Runtime: 27 mins
Coming out of the embattled Netflix Animation today is Dead End: Paranormal Park (previously known as DeadEndia), a new 2D animated series that sees Barney alongside his walking and talking dog teaming up with unlikely parties to save the world in a haunted theme park.
While the series certainly won’t be for everyone, the show has been praised for its representations of LGBTQ groups.
Won’t You Be My Neighbor? (2018)
Genre: Documentary, Biography
Director: Morgan Neville
Cast: Fred Rogers, Joanne Rogers, John Rogers
Runtime: 95 min
Finally, today is a superb documentary and possibly one of the best documentaries now on Netflix period.
We’re referring to the Focus Features documentary on PBS children’s show host, Fred Rogers who many of you likely grew up watching. The doc is about the life and career of Rogers who hosted Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood between 1968 through 2001.
Of course, Rogers came to life on screen more recently with the Sony movie starring Tom Hanks.
