What a weird time these past few months have been, but hopefully some normality is coming back slowly!
In these features, we will detail what’s coming up on Netflix (and other little screens!) that you should definitely catch a glimpse of!
Here’s five films/TV series that we think deserve your attention…

Standard American comedy with a few laughs littered throughout. When there’s very little to do on a weekend, there’s much worse things to watch.
JOHN WAS TRYING TO CONTACT ALIENS
Director: Matthew Killip
Star: John Shepherd
John Shepherd spent 30 years trying to contact extraterrestrials by broadcasting music millions of miles into space. After giving up the search he makes a different connection here on Earth.
An intriguing plot and just 16 minutes of your time needed. There is literally no reason for why you cannot watch this short movie. Give it go and let us know your thoughts.

Madrid, 2019. A serial killer is spreading chaos. Anonymous people with no apparent connection are being murdered while imitating the first appearances of the most famous superheroes.
This is a must-see and will quietly be a little hit we think on the streaming service. It’s a Spanish crime thriller with an alluring plot; we cannot wait for late August when this is released.
Directors: Henry Joost, Ariel Schulman
Writer: Mattson Tomlin
Stars: Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Jamie Foxx, Machine Gun Kelly
When a pill that gives its users unpredictable superpowers for five minutes hits the streets of New Orleans, a teenage dealer and a local cop must team with an ex-soldier to take down the group responsible for its creation.
And finally, a movie that could be utter trash but our word what a narrative write-up. It’s like some Matrix x Limitless style of production… and we are here for it no matter what!
