Must Watch Alert! Netflix' Enola Holmes Makes You Desperate For A Sequel!

After a horrendous Holmes and Watson (2018), fans would be pleased to know that Netflix' latest production is a respectable addition to the Sherlock franchise. This is probably the only film in the Holmes universe which isn't about Sherlock, but about his equally witty and skilled sister - Elona Holmes. 
Film – Enola Holmes (2020)Duration – 2h 03m
Directors Harry Bradbeer
Main Cast - Millie Bobby Brown, Henry Cavill, Sam Claflin, Louis Partridge and Helena Bonham Carter
Rating – 3.5 / 5
(No spoilers follow below)
Netflix' Enola Holmes hits all the right spots when it comes to storytelling and character interpretations and succeeds in paying a praiseworthy homage to the works of Sir Arthur Conan Dyle. Never once does the movie feel boring or uninvolving, thanks to a cleverly written script and amazing performances throughout. The film does not feature iconic Sherlock characters like Dr. Watson or Professor Moriarty but frankly I was so sold by Enola Holmes, that this film could…

Must Watch Alert! Netflix's The King

From The Last Kingdom to The Crown and now to The King, Netflix has upped it's British period drama game. With it's beautiful cinematography,  glorious battles and gorgeous visuals,  The King is sure to leave the viewers in an awe.  To watch the trailer click ⬇️



Duration - 2h 20m
Director - David Michôd
Main Cast - Timothèe Chalamet, Joel Edgerton, Robert Pattinson, Ben Mendelsohn and Sean Harris
Rating - 4/5

David Michôd's The King is about young Henry V who has to deal with deceit,  war and treachery on becoming the new King of England in 15th century after the death of his father and brother.  As a young man with peace as his soul aim,  he is caught between the ideals of his advisors and his own.  The film is a gripping drama about war and peace which questions the very existence of these two terms and how they are intertwined with each other. Appropriately casted as King Henry V, Timothėe Chalamet delivers a career high performance with brilliant dialogues and rousing speeches. Joel Edgerton's Falstaff acts the most loyal advisor-cum-friend of King Henry and delivers very powerful and motivational lines throughout the film,  which just like King Henry also have a deep impact on the viewers.

Just like any other period drama,  The King finds it's antagonist in the French king's unintelligent son played very sillily yet hilariously by Robert Pattinson. His over exaggerated accent was fun to watch but its sure to give your ears a bad time. Unfortunately Lily Rose-Depp doesn't get much screentime but her character is highly important for the final few decisions King Henry makes. Sean Harris' William is the mysterious character whose motivations and actions are hard to decipher throughout the film.

But that's not all. The direction, cinematography and color grading of the film is worth an applaud and even if someone doesn't find the characters that interesting,  the visuals alone are worth talking this ride for. The visuals are amazingly supported by a thrilling and stirring background score which will surely stick with the viewer's mind for a long time.
