Pig (2021)


This is a weird film. Its plot seems pretty basic but people absolutely loved it. In Pig we follow a lonely Truffle Hunter who returns to Portland to hunt down the person who stole his pig. Critics adored the pig mystery giving it a score of 97% on Rotten Tomatoes while the audiences scored it at 84%. The critics consensus reads:

Like the animal itself, Pig defies the hogwash of expectations with a beautiful odyssey of loss and love anchored by Nicolas Cage's affectingly raw performance. 

Michael Sarnoski made his directorial debut with this film and it stars Nicolas Cage, Alex Wolff, and Adam Arkin.

You can watch Pig in theaters now.

Sex/Life (Season 1)


The first season of Sex/Life sort of snuck onto Netflix without much of us knowing about it.

The series managed to hit the top 10 spots on Netflix within just one month of its release. It follows housewife, Billie Connelly, who can't stop fantasizing about her days with her super handsome ex-boyfriend Brad Simon. She often thinks about cheating on her husband with her ex. Will she do it? Well, you got to watch to find out.

This one didn't manage to get the best reviews on any of the review aggregators only managing a 25% score from critics and 35% from audiences. But amidst the bad reviews, Netflix subscribers are eating it up like bacon on a Sunday morning.

Schmigadoon! (Season 1)


Okay, out of all the films if there is one that you absolutely must watch today is the parody-comedy series Schmigadoon!.
