The Dark

“If you liked Stranger Things, this decades-spanning, mind-bending German sci-fi series will freak you out. Watch in German with English subtitles rather than the default English-dubbed version, the original actors’ voices are way more convincing.” –Davey Davis, Programming Coordinator

“A captivating and heartbreaking 6-minute short. Come for the dystopian anti-consumerism story and the stunning animation styles, stay for the New Order soundtrack.” –Leslie Means, Education Coordinator

WHERE TO WATCH:

 


Suits

“With the Royal Wedding, I decided I better dive into learning more about Meghan Markle after a recommendation from Penny Frates. And it’s fun!” –Elisabeth Nebeker, Executive Director

WHERE TO WATCH:

 


Pontypool

“Excellent Horror/Zombie movie from Canada. A DJ barricaded in his radio station tries to warn public of a virus and its less-than-ideal side effects. Suspenseful, smart, with an appropriate amount of gore.” –Jeff Horne, Systems Coordinator

WHERE TO WATCH:

 


The Expanse

“Set two hundred years in the future after mankind has colonized part of the solar system, The Expanse is a noir thriller/mystery/political suspense story told with a talented, diverse cast and amazing cinematography.” –Sarah Mohr, Office Coordinator & Executive Assistant to Geralyn W. Dreyfous

WHERE TO WATCH:

 


Paddington

“Even with growing up with the stories and stuffed animals, and maybe because so, I was not very interested in seeing this silly looking film. However, after being repeatedly told by trusted friends and critics how good it and its sequel were, I took a chance and am glad I did. One word: charming.” –Josh Levey, Marketing Director
