It’s a small miracle really: the recent Netflix premiere of Orson Welles’s lost final film, The Other Side of the Wind. It’s something akin to locating the Titanic or perhaps resurrecting a living breathing woolly mammoth. And the achievement isn’t merely about finding the film: this is the real deal, a genuine masterpiece from a genuine master filmmaker believed lost to history forever and suddenly … Continue reading The Other Side of the Wind Isn’t a Film You Watch; It’s a Film You Study – Screenhub Entertainment
Netflix has recently released the third season of its Viking infused historical epic The Last Kingdom.

It’s no secret that video game adaptations have been sub-par. They range from downright garbage to mediocre at best and haven’t shown much in the way of improvement over the years. That is to say, until Netflix’s Castlevania came around. Season 1 was a brief introduction to the world, with four half four episodes making up the first season. Now, season 2 is here and … Continue reading ‘Castlevania Season 2’ Review – ScreenHub Entertainment
Netflix’s The Haunting of Hill House. Maybe you’ve heard of it. The horror television series has been making waves and I’ve finally finished the series. The show is inspired by the 1959 Shirley Jackson novel of the same name but makes some dramatic departures from that source material.

The future is digital. When it started, Netflix was the only competitive name in the international market for online streaming content, offering competitive prices and a wide variety of content. Needless to say, the playing field has changed since 2007. Now, audiences have a wide variety of services to chose from, including Amazon Prime, Hulu, HBO Go and the upcoming Disney Streaming Service, which will offer original Marvel content and the upcoming, $100 million Jon Favreau Star Was show. There are more top-tier options to chose from as well, including Sling, Playstation VUE and CBS streaming site All Access, which recently revealed Patrick Stuart’s return as Picard in an upcoming Star Trek show. YouTube has gotten into creating original content with Cobra Kai and Apple is looking to create original content by 2019 after investing $1 billion in the venture.
While the cost of streaming still is cheaper than regular cable for most, how long before those combined costs surpass the cost of cable?
Absolutely everything today is public – every post, every text, every email, every tweet. In our internet-obsessed world, humanity is permanently connected through each individual’s digital footprint. It is no longer uncommon to wake up to a seemingly endless string of tweets made by anyone from world leaders to the primary faces of pop culture. However, at what point can we draw the line between free speech and ignorant oversharing? On May 29th, this sensitive issue was brought to light on a global scale and under unfortunate circumstances.
May 18th is a day I did not foresee as one of controversy. Yet, when it was announced that this would be the premiere date for season two of 13 Reasons Why, the backlash was inevitable. This Netflix series first hit the public eye in March 2017 and immediately left critics divided. Based on the novel by Jay Asher, 13 Reasons Why centres in on the … Continue reading A Second Chance for ’13 Reasons Why’? – ScreenHub Entertainment
The Fast and the Furious franchise is known now for being an over the top, goofy action series that’s best described as a Saturday morning cartoon. Well, looks like the good folks at Netflix saw that comparison and decided to make it a reality as the streaming platform has just ordered a Fast and Furious animated spin off series with their new partners.
(Disclaimer: this post contains spoilers for Annihilation and for The Southern Reach trilogy that the film was based on) Earlier this week, the film adaptation of Jeff VanderMeer’s Southern Reach Trilogy dropped worldwide on Netflix having only gone through cinemas in China, Canada, and the USA when Paramount sold it to Netflix after predictions that it wouldn’t make enough money as it was ‘too intellectual’. This at … Continue reading What Went Wrong With ‘Annihilation’? – ScreenHub Entertainment
