Classic Mayhem: Woodstock 99
Almost a year later Woodstock 99: Peace, Love and Fury, produced by HBO and televised by Crave, the (infamous) festival’s debacle inspires a new documentary, this time on Netflix. The series is divided into three particularly dense one-hour episodes Classic Mayhem: Woodstock 99 (appropriately titled Clusterf**k: Woodstock ’99in the original English version) fascinates us, disgusts us and shocks us.

I have never
It’s heartening to see the brilliant third season of my first time (I have never) collect tens of millions of views on the Netflix platform. Even in its third chapter, this Teen Drama atypical has not lost its liveliness and originality, on the contrary. It’s always so funny, charming and written with finesse.
disconnected is an eight-part comedy starring Neil Patrick Harris, a posh New York real estate agent who becomes single overnight after his partner dumped him after 17 years together. decoupled,it’s a bit like Sex and the City happy version. We’re in Uptown New York and it’s about love and friendship.
My next guest needs no introduction
It’s not the first time we write it: we miss David Letterman. We miss the presenter and comedian so much that we often visit his new YouTube channel, where he regularly posts archives of the late show from CBS. Featured on Netflix: Interviews with Cardi B, Kevin Durant, Billie Eilish, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Ryan Reynolds and… Will Smith. But lower your expectations, the show was taped before the actor fell into everyone’s esteem by raising his hand to Chris Rock at the Oscars.

The gray man
Brothers Anthony and Joseph Russo make a film here that lives up to their expectations. The feature film is two hours long, but there’s enough explosions, chases, gunfights, suspense and humor to keep us interested to the end. No romance (apart from a little flirting) and that’s fine. This is an action movie and the action comes first up to the last tense fight scene.
The man from Toronto
We can imagine how the plot will develop. However, there are some surprises along the way. The action is not lacking and the adventures are incredible. Here’s a comedy that feels good, without much pretense (but a good budget – almost 100 million), and quite enjoyable.
Scheduled for three years – it’s a loooong time – this fourth season of stranger thingsharder and more bloody than the previous ones, comes in format jumbo : All episodes last between 1h and 1h40. stranger things has aged, as have its performers, and its credentials are no longer aimed at pre-teens. It became an exciting horror series Itwhere the new villain Vecna resembles the fearsome Night King game of Thrones.
Stay sweet – pray and obey
A true-crime documentary series about a cult in which a despotic leader who calls himself a prophet marries 78 women, 24 of them minors, and predicts the end of the world in the middle of the Utah desert? Here ! It is fascinating and shocking, captivating and repulsive at the same time. And very disgusting.
Borrow: power and glory
We had no more hopes for the sequel to the brilliant Danish miniseries Borrow. Here it is on Netflix today, nine years after the last season, with its refinement, exuberant complexity and themes more timely than ever. This fourth opus really does not disappoint. Borrow: power and glory is aimed at curious and enlightened adults who like series The western wing and house of cardswith a particularly sophisticated Scandinavian touch.
