It is more than evident that the price with which SkyShowtime has been launched on the market is tempting, 2.99 eurobut as a person who subscribes to six streaming platforms, adding one more to the list is being too optimistic about the free time I have left.
But the fact that it costs a couple of lattes sucks, and if a friend tells me that it has cool content, then nothing happens to try it for a month. To be honest, you don’t have to do a lot of clapping to get me to dance either, so I subscribed thinking that I can unsubscribe from Netflix as many of the people around me have done after the price hike.
But I haven’t even unsubscribed from Netflix (how to do it now that it’s coming the second season of I’m Georgina)nor have I unsubscribed from SkyShowtime because I have found a miniseries that has convinced me to stay. It premiered on Paramount+ last year and now we can see it in Spain thanks to the new platform of streaming.
I’ll just tell you to watch the trailer before continuing and tell me if with that cast it’s not worth at least watching the first chapter. This starring Miles Teller (which convinced us a lot in Top Gun: Maverick), Matthew, Juno Temple, Giovanni Ribisi, Dan Fogler, Burn Gorman and Colin Hanks (yes, Tom Hanks’ son).
It tells the real experience of Albert S. Ruddy, the producer of one of Movies to watch at least once in your life, The Godfatherthat if you have not done it yet, you can taste it in Amazon Prime Video and in HBO Max (wink, wink). Some even talk about it the greatest play ever filmedbut don’t think that this miniseries is a simplistic homage to the movie.
Subscribe to Amazon Prime and enjoy free shipping and all Prime Video content for only 36 euros a year.
Subscribe to HBO Max for one year for 69.99 euros and pay for 8 months instead of 12
The offerthe miniseries that dives into the dark side of The Godfather
The dramatization of the filming and production of one of the greatest masterpieces of cinema makes it clear to us that even the best films have conflicts behind them, they are complicated to manage and they have much more work behind them than we later think they have when we see them shot in the sofa and in pajamas.
He dives into the shooting and explores the difficulties of the film, showing us a Hollywood that we normally don’t have access to. It is light, dynamic and a great way to amortize those two coffees that SkyShowtime costs.
And as if that were not enough, we love Juno Temple’s outfits (and her since she played Keeley Jones in ted lasso). You couldn’t ask for more to give us a serial binge this weekend.
