Rotten Tomatoes: 94% positive
Genre: Horror, Mystery
Remember the amazing debut Get Out of producer and director Jordan Peele? Well, he is is back, and how! Just over a week ago, his second big movie Us hit the cinemas, and once again it’s as haunting and gripping as we like it. The enthralling trailer starts off with a lovely American family spending some quality time on the beach, until the night falls and stranger things are starting to happen: a silhouette of four figures meets them up in the driveway to their holiday home. As soon as they realize it’s more than paranoia, each one of them inextricably ends up fighting with the doppelgänger of themselves…
The movie stars Winston Duke , whom you may have seen in Black Panther, and Lupita Nyong’o, whom you may have seen in a bunch of movies such as 12 Years a Slave, the Star Wars movies and Black Panther too. PS: If you’re a Friends fan, keep an eye out for the twins who played Ross and Rachel’s baby Emma!

The movie features an amazing ensemble cast which includes Ben Affleck (he’s been in many movies, but you may recognize him as Batman in the DC movies) , Oscar Isaac (you may know him from Ex Machina or the Star Wars movies), Pedro Pascal (you may know him from Game of Thrones or coincidentally Narcos), Charlie Hunnam (you may know him from the tv show Sons of Anarchy) and Garrett Hedlund (you may know him from Tron: Legacy).

Genre: Reality Television
Although Queer Eye falls under the reality tv category, it’s nothing like your average reality tv show. Each episode of the tv show centers around the Fab Five which consists of Jonathan ( grooming expert), Tan (fashion expert), Bobby (interior design expert), Karamo (culture and lifestyle expert, or as I like to call him: healer of the soul) and Antoni (food and wine expert). In each episode, the Fab Five give a makeover to a person who may be sad, may lack self-confidence or may just need a boost in life. Each member of the Fab Five works his magic and together they make a positive change in the person’s life! If you’re in a bad mood, I guarantee you that watching Queer Eye will make you feel better. After watching one episode you will want to watch the rest of the season and in no time you will also be saying Queer Eye is my therapy.
