Stranger things: the platform's star series and a real tribute to eighties cinema. Its plot follows the misadventures of a group of teenagers in the fictional Hawkins County, whose inhabitants are victims of mysterious forces from the alternate dimension known as the Upside Down.

Love, Death & Robots: an animated anthology that, through its 18 chapters , tells us about self-concluding stories that, although they pass through the science fiction genre, have no qualms about touching topics more related to terror, romance or fantasy. Its main attraction lies in its animation, which does not follow an artistic and aesthetic uniformity since each story has its own style from photorealistic 3D animation to more traditional animation.
A Series of Catastrophic Misfortunes: Based on Lemony Snicket's eponymous book saga , the series tells us how the hapless Baudelaire orphans face all sorts of challenges and dangers, not to mention their lousy tutor, Count Olaf, who is obsessed with discovering the secrets of the family.

On this occasion, the Oscar-winning director works again with Robert De Niro and Joe Pesci, and makes his debut with the great Al Pacino , to tell us a story about the murky ins and outs of organized crime that also serves as a review of one of the great unsolved mysteries in the history of the United States: the disappearance of the unionist Jimmy Hoffa.
Squad 6: this crazy action comedy stars the incombustible Ryan Reynolds and directed by the histrionic Michael Bay, responsible for great action films of the nineties such as The Rock, Armageddon or Bad Boys . 128 minutes of unbridled action in which six individuals fake their own deaths to form a squad of agents whose mission is to overthrow the most dangerous criminals in the world.
Bright: this kind of urban fantasy starring our beloved Will Smith was qualified to offer something new. An original product that, however, is not quite as satisfactory as it could be .

Klaus: This 2D animated film is an endearing story for the whole family, centered on the figure of Santa Claus through the eyes of the true protagonist of the play, Jesper, a young postman who is sent to a remote island in the polar circle .
The Two Popes: this Netflix production takes us back to the year 2012, in full resignation of Pope Benedict XVI and the subsequent rise of the Argentine cardinal, Jorge Mario Bergoglio, whom we now know as Pope Francis.
