Coming to Netflix November 27, 2019
There is this guy named Martin Scorsese, and he’s had a long career making movies. Maybe you heard of some of them. Taxi Driver. Raging Bull. Goodfellas. The Departed. The Wolf of Wall Street. He made a few more but you get the idea.
After over a decade in some sort of development, this Scorsese fella finally got his movie The Irishman made, an adaptation of a 2004 book about an alleged mafia hitman who claims to have killed legendary union boss Jimmy Hoffa, and he got Al Pacino for Hoffa and Robert De Niro for the titular Irishman and combined they coaxed Joe Pesci out of retirement for one more go, and this three and a half hour movie has a $160 million budget so that should all be good enough reason for you to want to check this out.
But hey, how about universal reviews and praise so far from critics and audiences? Does that get you interested? Cause it should. And hey, who knows, maybe this Scorsese kid will surprise us yet with his blossoming career.
Nailed It! Holiday! Season 2
Coming to Netflix November 22, 2019
Coming November 22 is the second “holiday” edition of Nailed It!, the wonky AF baking competition show that has taken the country and world by storm, not due to the incredible work of the contestants on the show, but instead due to their wild ineptitude at creating overtly complex desserts on a first attempt with a time limit on a television set.
I mean, how can these people screw up something so simple?
Of course they are being set up to fail and this season will likely be no exception, however, what makes the show so enjoyable is how they are not insulted for their efforts. Well, host Nicole Byer will gently tease them and their creations but she does so in a way that seems to sweet and likeable that it just works. This show is just a delight of comedy, silliness, earnestness, and weirdness, and for the second holiday season in a row we get some new ridiculousness to enjoy with our families as we digest our holiday meals and contemplate our own terrible dessert monstrosities.
