As a new month begins, I always like to look through the new Films and TV Shows and pick out a Film & TV Watchlist. So here is my Watchlist for March 2018.
The Outsider – March 9th – Netflix
Jared Leto is a phenomenal actor (anyone who has seen Requiem for a Dream will know that) so his involvement was a major element that drew me to the film, also the fact that it’s set in Post-War Japan and involves the notorious Yakuza.
Anihilation – 12th March – Netflix
I’m still totally bitter that this movie won’t be shown at cinemas here in the UK, Alex Garland’s Ex Machina was the best film of 2015 in my opinion and this film feels like it belongs in a cinema!! Studio’s had faith in him back in 2015 and they had faith in Denis Villeneuve’s Arrival (all three of these films belong in the rather intriguing genre of smart, atmospheric and though provoking Sci-Fiction. Shame the studio’s don’t think it will be popular….do they really think we are all stupid and would rather more run of the mill turn off your brain sci-fi? Check out my Trailer review here
Tomb Raider – 15th March
Alicia Vikander is one of my favourite Actresses working at the moment, and since discovering her as Kitty in Joe Wright’s Anna Karenina in 2012 I have seen most of the films she’s been in (including the brilliant Danish film En Kongelig Affære, seriously watch it!!). So naturally when I heard she was going to play Laura Croft in a Tomb Raider Reboot I was really quite intrigued. And after seeing the trailer (read my trailer review here) I am really looking forward to a slightly more realistic take on the Lara Croft story.
Isle of Dogs – 30th March
I love Wes Andersons films, he makes movies with just the right amount of charm and quirkiness and I really enjoyed his first stop motion effort Fantastic Mr Fox so I am really really excited for this new film as it involves Dogs, Japan and a brilliant cast of actors. Check out my Trailer review here.
Jessica Jones – March 8th – Netflix
Jessica Jones season 1 was a breath of fresh air to the MCU, it was a little darker and dealt with some really quite disturbing issues but Krysten Ritters eponymous hero was rather riveting to watch. So I’m hoping that this series will follow on in the same vain, and having not finished The Defenders (I just didn’t click with it!) I hope that won’t effect my enjoyment of this new season.
Radio Romance (라디오 로맨스) – Viki.com
I started watching this TV show late in February and its a typical cute little romance thats perfect for the cold weather. There are 6 more episodes before the series finishes so I’m intrigued to see where the story goes.
Let me know in the comments section what you’re Film & TV Show Watchlist for March is!!
