VOD news 38/22: ‘A private matter’, mystery and fanfare in post

VOD News brings you the best releases of the week on Netflix, HBO Max, Amazon Prime Video, Disney+… And we start week thirty-eight with a private matter, a new Spanish series that stands out for discarding, but with style. That said, there is a little bit of everything for everyone.

In fact, the Prime Video offer for this week, even with the undeniable media success that this filthy thing called The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of PowerIt is very well stocked. Beginning with a private matteryes indeed.

a private matter is the new original Spanish series for Amazon Prime Video, a Bambú production that, with a few exceptions, is a carbon copy of everything they’ve done so far: grand hotel, Velvet, the wire girls, high seas… You get it, right? Indeed, a private matter It is a smug period series, but with a pleasant and entertaining bill in broad strokes. Although it also suffers from the common mistakes of the production company.

We see this, for example, in the role of Aura Garrido (The Ministry of Time), one repeated ad nauseam that shows us an empowered girl, with an imposing personality with which she sweeps wherever she goes, constantly claiming the role of women in society… All this in the Galicia of the 40s, although being high class as she is, it’s all a bit more boring due to the repetition of the character than one might wish.

However, Marina Quiroga, that is the name of her character in a private matter, comes from a family of policemen (by the time, very Francoist, of course) and is passionate about criminalistics who will be involved in… a private matter, of course. That is where the best of the series is: in the mystery and the touch of humor that accompanies everything and that crowns the second in command, a Jean Reno (Lion, The visitors) that manages to recover almost every scene he is in.

Definitely, a private matter It is the same series as always, with that period atmosphere that they know how to make in Bamboo so well, with the same flaws as always… but if you like period and detective mystery series that don’t take themselves very seriously, give him a chance. You like the same.

Changing the third, Amazon Prime Video launches a thriller of terror that may sound familiar to you: Good night mom; and it is about the remake of the Austrian title of the same namedirected in its present adaptation by one of those responsible for the striking new cherry flavor and played by Naomi Watts (King Kong, The impossible, Mulholland Drive). It doesn’t seem to have caught up with the original, which you’ll also find on Prime Video, but the premise is most unsettling.

Lastly, Amazon has become exclusive with Licorice Pizzaone of the nominees in the past Oscar Awards and one of the most successful films by Paul Thomas Anderson, director of Magnolia either boogie nights.

We continue with Netflix, which brings a lot, but in a quick review, what is not bad, is worse. And how dangerous is the amount of rottenbrain rubbish he throws at the youngest! But just like in a dunghill you can find valuable items, on Netflix you can find exceptions to the rule such as…

First of all we have Cyberpunk: Edgerunnersthe new Netflix anime series based on Cyberpunk 2077 Of which we already anticipate something, so I refer you to that entry if you want to know more. Now, if all you want to know is if they got it right, the answer is… yes, they did! And I don’t add anything else, because it’s not worth it. It will be short for you.

There’s more, and I mean there’s more to anime worth noting. In this case it’s a movie called drifting home and in the absence of having more criticism or seeing it, which I have not yet had the opportunity, just because of the drawing and the story that they pose, I feel like it. Which then is bad… well, once and no more. But good looking, a priori, it has.

We pass with HBO Max, whose most outstanding launch is that of the fifth season of The Handmaid’s Talealthough to highlight something newer I have preferred to put…

desde, a series that has rebounded on the platform, although it is not even an exclusivity as such. In fact, as a producer it should have ended up on Amazon Prime Video and was expected on Netflix, but look where it ended up. The point, what interests you as an HBO Max subscriber, is that it is a mystery, horror and science fiction series that is endorsed by moderate criticism. And the plot is one of those that catches… and never better said.
