Lupin is a great way to spend hours of your spare time, but because of its length, it only manages to touch on the surface. Its pretty light for a crime mystery but has its own laid back charm. I would like to see how Season 2 plays out now that Assane’s identity is clear to both his enemies and a few select members of the French police.

I had such high hopes for Sweet Home … such high hopes. I was writing about this series long before it premiered on Netflix but now that its over, I feel somewhat shortchanged. It may be an unpopular opinion but I was wishing that Sweet Home could have been more than a 10-episode setup for the second season.

All in all, Holidate did not have the most original story. It was fairly simple but it filled out the better part of two hours with an entertaining take on the holidays for single people. It will definitely boost your holiday mood. And this is just me but I think the ending left enough room for a sequel. I would definitely check it out if it happens.

Audiences should not be attacked for the type of content that they prefer. And art should know no race. Good cinema is good cinema is good cinema. It transcends language and boundaries. If we want to bring local cinema to the attention of the world, our filmmakers should be open to different world views and approaches. Our local industry should be mindful of quality even while balancing it with profitability.
