The show that has taken the entire world by storm this year has been the South Korean dystopian drama, Squid Game (2021), and its popularity is not misplaced.

The Falcon and the Winter Soldier (2021, Season 1)—Review

Editing Note: This was written two months ago, but is only now being published. If there is any weird/out of place statements involving timing, that is why. Marvel and Disney have done it again.

Cruella (2021)—Review

Outside of their Alice in Wonderland (2010/2016), Maleficent (2014/2019), and Dumbo (2019) films, I have thoroughly enjoyed Disney's recent live action treatments of their classic catalogue.

Sweet Home (Season 1)—Netflix’s Live Action Take On Korean Webtoon Promises A Strong New Franchise

I have always been a fan of foreign cinema and television, particularly properties from Japan and France. However, it wasn't until I sat down to watch the high-octane and dramatic zombie thriller Train to Busan (2016) that Korean properties really grabbed my attention and instantly captivated me.

One of the last big outputs of 2020 content from Netflix came in the form of several foreign television shows in December.
