11.22.63 | Hulu Original | A mystery Sci-Fi Thriller that starts off brilliantly, eases off a bit and then ends with a bang !

  Jake Epping (James Franco ) is a high school teacher who travels back in time to 1960, through a time portal that was revealed to him by his friend and cafe owner Al Templeton. The time portal located in Al's Cafe closet lets them travel back to October 21'st 1960 every single time and however long they stay back in the past, its always just 2 minutes that elapses in the present. After multiple failed attempts and now dying of cancer, Al requests Jake to travel back in time so that he could prevent the JFK assassination (as he believes if JFK had survived, the world would have been a better place) by taking out Lee Harvey Oswald (Daniel Webber) and finding out if anybody else was involved in the same. Reluctantly and with nothing to lose in his present life, Jake sets out ...

Collateral | Netflix Limited Series | A British mystery with more drama than thrills.

Collateral (2018), is a  new four part limited mini-series that was made by BBC and presented to the rest of the world as a Netflix Original. We were thoroughly intrigued by the trailer which promised a lot with the stellar cast. The 4 episodes of this mini series occur over four consecutive days. They have tried to address too many issues in this short mini series, which in my opinion might have muddles the waters a bit. Carey Mulligan as DI Kip Gillespe, Jeany Spark as Major Sandrine Shaw, John Simm as MP David Mars and Nicola Walker (one of my favorite mini screen actors) as a gay clergy were stellar in their roles.  The series has bits about the pains of a homecoming soldier, the desperation of the refugees fleeing from their terror riddled home countries, drug abuse amongst you...
