What to Watch on Netflix This Weekend
The Gray Man (2022)
Genre: Action, Thriller
Director: Anthony Russo, Joe Russo
Cast: Ryan Gosling, Chris Evans, Ana de Armas
Writer: Joe Russo, Christopher Markus, Stephen McFeely
Runtime: 122 min
This week’s Netflix schedule was a little quieter than normal, largely because The Gray Man was the central title that Netflix wanted all the attention on. Time will tell if that pays off.
The huge new movie cost upwards of $200 million and features an all-star cast and some of the best action movie sequences you’ll see this year.
It comes from the directors of Avengers: End Game and is about one of the CIA’s top assets uncovering agency secrets which subsequently triggers a global hunt by assassins.
So far, critics and audience opinions are polar opposites. The movie did lukewarm with critics when it opened in theaters last week but audience scores have been far kinder, with it sitting at a 90% at the time of publishing.
Blown Away (Season 3)
Cast: Nick Uhas, Deborah Czeresko, Alexander Rosenberg
Runtime: 23 min
Netflix has a huge slate of Original reality programming but Blown Away is perhaps one of the more intriguing concepts. It’s a competition series that sees glass blowers compete to make weird and wacky sculptures. On paper it shouldn’t work but in reality, it’s one of the best series Netflix’s reality department produces.
Once again, the series kicks off with 10 new glassblowers trying to please the judges and notably for this season, the winner of season 1 is now a judge.
Jurassic World Camp Cretaceous (Season 5 – Final Season)
Genre: Animation, Action, Adventure
Cast: Paul-Mikél Williams, Kausar Mohammed, Jenna Ortega
Writer: Zack Stentz
Runtime: 24 min
Yesterday we said goodbye (but not forever) to Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous, which has five great seasons on Netflix. Based on the Jurassic Park franchise, we’ve followed six teens who have been trapped on various dinosaur infested islands.
It’s one of Netflix’s highest-rated kids series of all time and ends with its fifth and final season.
