Yesterday we commented on the presence of Ballad of songbirds and snakes on the billboard near the premiere of Teacher in Netflix. Both represent respectively the return of a saga that has never been given enough revenue and the second film as someone’s director (Bradley Cooper) that let us see what he was capable of with a debut as resounding as A star has been born. But of course, we have usually known Cooper as an incredibly solvent character actor. Enough to hold your gaze Clint Eastwood.
Cooper settled for a juicy supporting role in this road movie, one of Clint Eastwood’s last and most brilliant films. Based on a bizarre true story, Eastwood played a man in the twilight of his life who demonstrated surprising efficiency in transporting drugs from one side of the border to the other. Cooper landed the role of the police officer trying to hunt him down.

You may come to it without the previous films being very recent, and that may perhaps be solved with a timely review of the last two installments focused on Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence). Both parts of Mockingjaywith which the rebellion against the Capitol came to an end, you have them in the catalog of HBO Max.
Grandma (Amazon Prime Video)

Another film in a career that continues to chain peaks and enhance our genre cinema.
Cobra Kai (Netflix)
If you think that the previous proposals were too solemn, you can still relax with a return to the universe of Karate Kid. Of course, it is not that the misfortunes of Johnny Lawrence They are to be laughed at, since the series that began on YouTube and continued on Netflix ends up being a quite lucid drama about redemption and second chances. And yes, it also appears Ralph Macchio.
