For An All-Star Cast Space Thriller: Stowaway (Netflix)
Stowaway's all-star cast, tense space situation, and sci-fi setup make for an exciting expedition, just one that could use a post-mission debriefing.  For more information, check out the review!  And after you watch it, check out my video review with my dramatic reading of an alternate ending!

For An Action-Filled John Wick-like: Nobody (Digital and Red Box On Demand)
Nobody is a middle class, family man John Wick, with high energy and varied action, a mysterious story, and an epic, final fightsravaganza.  For more information, check out the review!

For Those Missing Travel: Life in Color (Netflix)
It's David Attenborough doing a nature documentary.  You know you want to watch it, especially if you have been cooped up this last year and missing travel.  See amazing sights with excellent British narration!
