While the new series on everybody’s lips is Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story, things on the film side of Netflix hasn’t changed all that much this week, with Do Revenge the latest release from Maya Hawke and Camile Mendes, making the only real shift.
Now on the top spot is the release of Maya Hawke and Camile Mendes’ modern adaptation of Alfred Hitchcock’s film Strangers on a Train — the dark comedy and perfectly soundtracked, Do Revenge. The synopsis for the show reads: “After a clandestine run-in, Drea (Alpha, fallen it girl) and Eleanor (beta, new alt girl) team up to go after each other’s tormentors. Do Revenge is a subverted Hitchcock-ian dark comedy featuring the scariest protagonists of all: teenage girls.”
We may have the odd opinion of the Do Revenge soundtrack, but in truth, the film is a romp without much thought behind it. Watch it, enjoy it, and likely never talk about it again. However, the chart is full to the brim with new entries this week, so it’s not as if you’re short on content.
First, we have the action-adventure hit Lou, which has found 40 million hours of viewing. Next up is Mark Wahlberg’s attempt at comedy, Father Stu, which has naturally gathered 14 million hours of viewing, despite its propensity to be a turgid affair. I Used to Be Famous and A Jazzman’s Blues make up the rest of the top five entries this week.
But it’s not all new entries this week. As well as Robert Downey Jr’s Do Little, there is another light-hearted classic in our midst. This is the End is a Hollywood satire that sees a group of actors facing the end of the world together. Busting with all-star cameos, the leaders of the movie, Seth Rogen and James Franco, help to deliver a laugh-a-minute comedy that is well worth your time
