Every week we tip 5 wonderful films and series that appeared on Netflix in the week before. Good news for BridgertonFans: Season 2 is available this week. In addition, we enjoy a more than decent remake of a 90s classic.
Inspiration sometimes seems to be hard to find in Hollywood. Film producers go safe and shamelessly re-release film classics. One after the other abominable remake is pushed down our throats. However, they are not all bad. take jumanjic for instance. The timeless classic from 1995 with the late Robin Williams and a very young Kirsten Dunst was an outright blockbuster. The sequel (sort of remake) with Dwayne Johnson starring, is far from bad and brings a cool new twist to the story. So definitely worth it.
