Jeen-yuhs: A Kanye Trilogy

(3-part docuseries – act 2 available now)

An intimate portrait of one of pop culture's most divisive figures, Jeen-yuhs: A Kanye Trilogy charts the adult life of Kanye West, from innovative musical pioneer to failed political hopeful and caricature of his former self. Directors Coodie & Chike began documenting West's life long before he was famous, offering highlights from almost two decades worth of footage that not only provide insight into the drive and motivation that led him to success, but also the immense pressure that led to his failings.

Vikings: Valhalla

Netflix's surprise sequel series to the hit show Vikings is set over a thousand years ago in the 11th century, and follows an entirely new cast of of some of the most famous Vikings who ever lived.

Sounds good to us!

Disney Plus gets into the true crime game (by way of its more grown-up Star brand, natch) with City of Angels: City of Death, a six-part series which recounts the terrifying period during the 1970s and 1980s in which Los Angeles was considered the serial killer capital of the world.

Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard

(Movie – available now 25/2/2022)

Despite vanishing entirely from the memories of everyone who watched it as soon as its end credits rolled, 2017's The Hitman's Bodyguard proved enough of a success to warrant a sequel, this time focusing Salma Hayek's character. Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson are back, too, along with the addition of Antonio Banderas. Don't expect a classic and you might enjoy this one.
