Eli Roth’s Thanksgiving takes viewers to Plymouth, Mass., where a Black Friday riot turns deadly, sparking a series of gruesome revenge killings by a killer inspired by the holiday. What starts as seemingly random murders unfolds into a grand, malevolent scheme, leaving the townspeople racing against time to stop the murderer before they become part of a macabre feast. Roth infuses the slasher genre with a wicked sense of humor, taking it to an entirely new level of sophistication. Starring the likes of Patrick Dempsey, Addison Rae, and Milo Manheim, Thanksgiving delivers a fresh take on horror that perfectly blends nail-biting scares with the director’s signature offbeat humor.
Set against the backdrop of the late 19th century, Warrior plunges viewers into the tumultuous gang wars of San Francisco’s Chinatown. Thrust into the fray, Ah Sahm, a newcomer with unmatched martial arts skills, becomes a pivotal player in the brutal power struggles defining San Francisco’s Chinatown. Drawing on the original concepts penned by martial arts legend Bruce Lee, Warrior weaves the legendary icon’s ideas into a gritty narrative of loyalty and power struggles in a tumultuous underworld. Originally aired on HBO and now finding a new home on Netflix, this beloved series teases the possibility of revival if it captures the audience’s imagination.
Players introduces us to Mack (Gina Rodriguez), a New York sportswriter who’s mastered the art of the hookup but fumbles when it comes to love. After years of executing flawlessly designed plays for one-night stands with her best friend Adam (Damon Wayans Jr.), Mack’s world is upended when she meets Nick (Tom Ellis), a charismatic war correspondent. Suddenly, she’s faced with the ultimate dilemma: stick to the game plan or let her heart lead the way? Directed by Trish Sie and penned by Whit Anderson, this rom-com cleverly subverts the genre’s tropes, presenting a story where love is the game and Mack must decide whether she’s playing to win or just playing.
Dive into the strange (and arguably genius) of Vince Staples with The Vince Staples Show, a scripted series that finds Staples playing a version of himself, navigating the absurdities of life in Long Beach, Calif. From bizarre foot chases to navigating the quasi-fame of a rapper who’s always on the brink of trouble (but not really), Staples’ life is anything but dull. The series, featuring Vanessa Bell Calloway and Andrea Ellsworth along with a dynamic roster of guest stars, delivers a blend of humor, unexpected turns, and lively blunders. With Kenya Barris serving as executive producer, Black-ish blends wit and unpredictability, captivating viewers with its stellar guest stars and all-too-familiar blunders.
Paul Rudd’s portrayal of Moe Berg in The Catcher Was a Spy reveals the captivating dual life of an MLB player who became a covert operative during WWII. Rudd joins forces with Sienna Miller, Jeff Daniels, and Guy Pearce to thwart Germany’s atomic ambitions during World War II. Ben Lewis’ film pulls you into a tense world where secret agents navigate ethical crossroads, offering an engrossing experience for anyone who’s into the gritty realism of war dramas or the edge-of-your-seat tension in spy stories. Rudd delivers a complex hero with skill, and the movie’s sharp focus on historical accuracy, paired with its compelling plot, make sure it captures your attention.
