The Family Man Season 2: Amazon Prime Video

In her review of The Family Man Season 2, The Indian Express film critic Shubhra Gupta wrote, “The second season of The Family Man is bigger, slicker, and much better. It significantly raises its stakes, casts its net wider, and manages to get in a larger context, even if fleeting, about the state of the world we are living in.”

The Mauritanian – Amazon Prime Video

Benedict Cumberbatch, Tahir Rahim and Jodie Foster star in this 9/11 procedural thriller dealing with the subject of unethical torture.

Mortal Kombat, which hit theatres in April this year, stars Lewis Tan, Hiroyuki Sanada, Joe Taslim, Josh Lawson, Jessica McNamee. In his review of the film, Indianexpress.com’s Kshitij Rawat wrote, “The movie, like the games, is set in a fictional universe made up of eighteen realms or worlds, in which the Earthrealm is one. If the chosen warriors of a particular realm defeat the warrior of another in the titular tournament ten times, the victorious realm is allowed to conquer the vanquished one. Earthrealm stands on the verge of defeat after losing nine tournaments.”

Sweet Tooth: Netflix

In an interview, executive producer Robert Downey, Jr. revealed why he backed Netflix film Sweet Tooth. Downey said, “The comics had this scope and emotional breadth of storytelling, and the characters were just so engaging. We wanted to make a great co-viewing experience for parents and kids. And I know when Susan’s starting to engage with something, subject matter or a character, she just has this ability once she locks in and says, “I’m really feeling this.” She will not stop until it’s been brought to life.”

The actor added, “This is an expansive world and an epic story. Nowadays, you have to wow me. I have to feel like, “Wow, what is that? And where is that? And who are these people? And what’s going on?” And then I always leave it to the boss to make sure that the story rings true and the characters are great. This show has the big macro elements that get my attention, and you also really buy into these characters and root for them.”

Kim’s Convenience Season 5: Netflix
