Guest Spot: Disney+
Last year I’d put up a set of streaming recommendations each week, usually based on a theme. With all this [gestures around wildly to illustrate] it now felt the time for a joyous comeback. And, as with all iconic comebacks, it’ll be with a slight re-brand. Namely that I’ll be dropping the theme aspect. Each week I’ll put together 3 lists (Netflix, Amazon Prime and an interchangeable third) where pick 7 films that I would recommend. I’ll be covering all sorts of genres and era, so there really should be something for everyone. Now, without much ado here’s the Netflix list. Click here for Netflix and Amazon Prime.
