“All of life is a what-if. The next couple of minutes are a what-if.”

I don’t know how I missed this short documentary on Netflix from 2017. It’s the heartfelt true story of Juan Catalan accused of murder and the odd occurrences that protect him from being sentenced to death.

What makes this real-life narrative compelling are the twists that occur revealing how Juan is innocent. In the process, you should “curb your enthusiasm” as we once again see how broken our police force is.

If you have 40 minutes to spare this weekend, ignore Netflix's THUNDER FORCE and watch this heartfelt overlooked classic instead.

NOBODY takes a bit of time to get its engines running, but once they do, it's just a ton of fun. Most of that is attributed to how the amazing chameleon that is Bob Odenkirk carries this film and the action so believably, along with a great ensemble consisting of RZA and Christopher Lloyd.

While it's not quite as innovative as the JOHN WICK series in terms of how it executes its action sequences, it's definitely very acceptable and just as brutal for a good time. The final action scene alone is worth the rental price tag! Though I do wish a lot of the other action scenes were just as long, particularly one really awesome car chase scene.

With BETTER CALL SAUL nearing its finale this coming season, NOBODY will surely make the case for Bob Odenkirk to once more reinvent his career as a hardcore action star this time. And I tell ya, if they plan on making another one, this nobody will be on board for NOBODY II.

NOBODY is now available to rent on several different platforms.

Melissa McCarthy and Octavia Spencer are two childhood best friends who reunite as an unlikely crime-fighting superhero duo when one invents a formula that gives ordinary people superpowers. Now throw in Melissa’s husband, Ben Falcone, as writer and director. Can’t lose, right? Wrong. There is just so much here to unpack, none of it good. Ben’s script is not particularly action-packed, and not at all funny. You know what it’s like to sit there with that silly nervous-monkey-smile on your face, waiting for something to get funny that does not? Well, that was me. Such a waste of talent, especially the cringe-inducing dialogue, and poor Octavia is really being dragged along on this misfire. OMG.

THUNDER FORCE, screening on NETFLIX, shows how much harder comedy is than super-hero action – SKIP IT!
