TV & Film Journal | 25.03.22

Aside from patiently waiting for the Oscars this weekend (ft. a Beyonce performance, reunion of the cast of Twilight and having just read the article on what's in the goodie bag for attendee's and blown away by the range - an actual plot of land in Scotland, and a humbling bag of ...nuts?, I am psyched), there's a ton more stuff that's on the to-watch list in the meantime on TV and in the cinemas. 

 1. Bridgerton Season 2 on Netflix

Happy Bridgerton day! We were lucky enough to attend the Bridgerton Season 2 world premiere this week at the Tate Modern which was nothing short of a swanky film-premiere-level event and see the new and old cast IRL (see for yourself here) as well as a preview of the first episode. Watching it again instantly reminds you of all the reasons why it was just so good first time round and there's some great instrumental covers (Rhianna) as expected, alongside some very great new characters.

2. Pachinko on AppleTV+ 

Based on a New York Times bestseller of the same name, this adaption has been coined as dazzling, epic and sumptuous that's unlike anything else on TV, with each episode split into chapters. Maybe with the exception of Deep Water, you can only go so wrong with an adaptation. The story follows multiple generations of a Korean family who immigrate to Japan in 1910, switching between then and Japan's Wall Street era.

3. Boiling Point on Netflix

It's been a hot minute since Stephen Graham was on the box and his new film Boiling Point is finally available to stream. Shot in one (one!) take during a particularly busy night in a restaurant, he plays a head chef whose life starts to spiral out of control. It sounds incredible and highly stressful in equal measure.

4. Spencer on Amazon Prime 

Gone are the days where you had to wait around months for the Oscar films to be available to RENT, let alone stream, but times are a-changing and you can already watch Kirsten Stewart's Spencer on Amazon Prime who's been nominated in this for Best Actress. Probably will watch for the visuals and intrigue in Kirsten as an actor over my interest in the story itself (reviews are mixed).

5. The Worst Person in the World in cinemas

I went to see this last week and am still thinking about how much I want to see it again. The Worst Person in the World is a Norwegian dramedy chronicling the life of 30YO Julie, played beautifully by Renate Reinsve, navigating love, work, family and friendship. It is truly great and will blow you away.
