VOD news brings you the best releases of the week on Netflix, HBO, Amazon Prime Video … And, there are original and exclusive releases on the different platforms that the section covers, which is where I put the focus to highlight something. But either they are out of place, or they are inconsequential, or they are directly so bad that I see myself in the position I least like: that of not highlighting anything in particular.

It just so happens that this has only happened to me once before – because I am able to knowingly highlight crappy things, as long as they at least have something to do with it – and it was exactly one year ago, in the fourteenth week of 2020. In full confinement of the hard. Now the situation is very different, but in one way or another we are still confined, so I didn’t think it was a bad idea to repeat the headline and the approach … with a nuance of its own.

And it is that if a year ago I simply put a generic header image with the main VOD platforms, I have chosen this time to use one of the classics that arrive, in this case, in the Netflix catalog: Schindler’s List, one of the great masterpieces of contemporary cinema and probably the best work Steven Spielberg has ever done, than if it had been released in 2021, who knows what would have happened to it.

It is striking, because nowadays the content of social denunciation about past and present inequalities abounds, but when the mere objective of these productions is to claim something and not offer a good story, everything is distorted. And what about the reactionary drift that the audiovisual industry is taking, when the truth is that it is nothing more than a pose facing the gallery.

There is no better example of this than Schindler’s List, a film that had been released this 2021, I repeat and add, it could not even have aspired to receive a single of the twelve nominations for the Oscars that it had at the time, let alone take the seven statuettes that it took, according to with the new rules of representation and inclusion of the Academy. This is how things are, for the worse.

Apologies, then, for this unusual introduction, as well as for the absence of trailers with which to give some life to the featured releases … but there aren’t any. For the rest, there are good movies and series to bore.

Netflix

We start the list with Netflix, which this week comes with a lot of movies for all audiences, but direct to the catalog. Of his premieres as such, Asphalt Cowboy was the highest ranked until I saw it (what a waste of Idris Elba!), followed by the miniseries of The snake, of good invoice, but hackneyed to exhaustion (that they spend the money on this and cancel Mindhunter…). The documentary series Magical AndesOn the other hand, it looks good, although I have not gotten to taste it.
