Movies

I Want You Back (Jason Orley) — USA

I Want You Back

Peter (Charlie Day) and Emma (Jenny Slate) were total strangers, but when they meet, one thing instantly bonds them: they were both unexpectedly dumped by their respective partners, Anne (Gina Rodriguez) and Noah (Scott Eastwood), on the same weekend.  As the saying goes, “misery loves company,” but their commiseration turns into a mission when they see on social media that their exes have happily moved on to new romances, Anne with Logan (Manny Jacinto) and Noah with Ginny (Clark Backo). Terrified that, in their 30s, they have lost their shot at happily ever after and horrified at the prospect of having to start over, Peter and Emma hatch a desperate plot to win the loves of their lives back. Each will do whatever it takes to put an end to their exes’ new relationships and send them running back to their arms.

It’s February, and what could be better (or worse) than a romantic comedy, just in time for Valentine’s Day?

Available February 11, 2022.

Series

Reacher — USA

Reacher

Reacher follows Jack Reacher, a veteran military police investigator who has just recently entered civilian life. Reacher is a drifter, carrying no phone and the barest of essentials as he travels the country and explores the nation he once served. When Reacher arrives in the small town of Margrave, Georgia, he finds a community grappling with its first homicide in 20 years. The cops immediately arrest him and eyewitnesses claim to place Reacher at the scene of the crime. While he works to prove his innocence, a deep-seated conspiracy begins to emerge, one that will require Reacher’s keen mind and hard-hitting fists to deal with. One thing above all is for sure: They picked the wrong guy to take the fall.

Based on Lee Child’s novel Killing Floor, the first season rocks the floor. Prison Break fans will be happy to know that it’s the same screenwriter who brings the novel to the screen.

She tells us about the time she went to jail, how much she misses her country when she travels abroad, how horrible it is to have kids and why she has two. “Lo Volvería a Hacer” leaves you with the urge to repeat all those things that you might regret.
