Well, this time was spent on watching existing entertaining movies and TV shows that were available on the streaming giant, and without a doubt, Netflix was on top of it all.
The network gave us plenty of new content to watch back in 2020 such as The Kissing Booth 2 as well as To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before’s second part.

To All The Boys: Always and Forever
Honestly, no subscriber of Netflix needs an introduction to this tale as it is legit the most popular romantic comedy film on the platform right now. Surely it is not releasing this week but we included it because the audience is loving it and you might want to check it out if you haven’t already. So, where do I start from? Yes, the inspiration for this To All The Boys trilogy has come from the novel series written by Jenny Han. As for the plot of the series, we see in this movie that Lara Jean, along with her sisters as well as father and soon-to-be stepmother goes on a trip to Seoul during the spring break. At this place, she gets reminded of the memory of her mother when the three sisters find their mother’s lock which she tied for her father. All this while, the only thing that Lara Jean is looking forward to all this time is going to Stanford. In this way, he and Peter could be in some of the classes together while having fun away from home.
Even Peter is pretty excited to go to Stanford University with Lara Jean and expresses how he would never say good night to her once they are there. On the other hand, Dan proposes to Trina and she says yes. Thus, the entire family gets busy planning for the wedding. Stanford gets their results out and Lara Jean does not get in. This bums her out but she does not tell about it to Peter who thinks that she is selected for Stanford. She thinks that she will opt for Berkeley finally so as to stay close to Peter and maybe even transfer after the first year to Stanford. Later, they all go on a trip to New York City where she describes the entire scenario to Peter and explains how she wants to go to New York University instead. This is why Peter breaks up with her in order to save himself from the hurt that will come from a failing long-distance relationship. Well, you will have to check out what happens in the story because I am not giving new spoilers.
I Care A Lot
This film has released just this week and is making the audience go nuts over the awesome plot that it has to tell us. The story is so fresh and straight out of the oven and critics say that Netflix really has done a great job with this tale. The story throws the entire spotlight on Marla Grayson who is a bad woman. All she does for a living is persuade the judges to give her guardianship over the elders who are residing all alone on their own.

This is how Marla runs her business by placing these old people in an old age home facility where their connection to the outside world has been cut off.
When all of the things are in place, she sells the property as well as the assets owned by the old people for her own benefit. The cast members have done a great job in making the movie even more successful and bringing the characters to life. The list includes Rosamund Pike who reprises the role of Marla Grayson.
