American Murder: The Family Next Door (Netflix Review)

Director; Jenny Popplewell
Documentary/Crime
1h 22 minutes
Streaming on Netflix

My stomach is turning just by watching the pictures, my soul was crushed when seeing this grim documentary, and my heart goes out to the families of the victims. The mother and those two little angels didn’t deserve such horrific faith, all because of a monster. To say it is gut-wrenching and soul-crushing is an understatement.

The documentary is based on the story that made massive headlines in 2018 – when Mrs. Watts and her two daughters were tragically murdered by the husband.

It is one hour and 22 minutes footage of details, facts, and personal home-videos leading up to the murder and reason behind it. It is thrilling and has you hooked within minutes of is beginning, and the tension rises as it moves forward to the finale of the story that will leave you heartbroken bawling your eyes out- unable to understand such outcome, action, and behavior from a person whom they loved so dearly.

It’s hard to watch, to see how someone can be capable of acting in such ways toward their own family, his own children. 7/10



The Equalizer 2 (Review)

Director; Antoine Fuqua
Action/Thriller/Crime
2h
Swedish Premiere; August 24th

Based on the Tv-show that aired between 1985 and 1989, The Equalizer is the story behind one retired agent who takes on justice into his own hands and makes sure the bad gets exactly what they deserve.
Denzel Washington is back as Robert McCall in the sequel that is a thrilling and emotional film with a visual experience that will take you for an action-packed ride of beautiful sound and excitement.

Denzel Washington is on a league of his own, there’s a certain essence not only to him as an actor, but also to the roles he takes on.
The sort of charisma and feelings these characters that he plays reflects through the screen in a sense that has a way of connecting with the viewer, and that is something truly I enjoy about him.

In the second film, we get to once again follow Agent McCall as he equalizes the good and the bad, this time getting justice for a very personal murder that will you take you on a roller coaster of twists, new enemies, and not knowing who to trust. 7/10
