Tiny Bean's Corner of the IFB Universe / Oct. 14, 2021

 Hello friends! Sorry I couldn't join in live last week, but looking forward to seeing you all on the 28th. On the meantime, a couple of tidbits till then...


Need another reason to check out AppleTv+? Check out the trailer for Invasion, landing Friday the 22nd:
Lots of promise here! The unique part is that the events are shown in real time from the perspective of 5 different people around the globe as they all realize the earth is being invaded by aliens. Oh, and there's Sam Neil, don't we all love Sam Neil?? Brought to you by Producer Simon Kinberg, check out his list of credits and I promise you there's something on there you like.

It's time to talk Squid Game. Have you seen it yet? (not you, Mom, it's not your speed) The biggest hit Netflix has ever seen is a dark, violent series from South Korea. The premise is simple, there is a series of games you can sign up to compete in to win an absolutely life changing fortune in money. The catch? The stakes are literally life or death. And there is a lot of death. This is not for the squeamish. But Squid Game is more than a gratuitous horror series. Is this a comment on economic disparity and moral bankruptcy? Definitely. And the series is incredibly compelling, the sets creepy and perfect, dialogue is crisp, the acting spot on. The challenges each one-up the one before and as you get more involved in the characters the harder it is to stop watching. Twists abound and I will not give them away. But a season 2 may be in the cards...I can hardly wait. Hoping the success of this show will create a need for more shows of this level of quality from around the world. Thank you Netflix for expanding our viewing options!
Here's the trailer:

Now the next time I see you it will be just before Halloween!! I'll have to check out Halloween Kills because, well, you just gotta. But Halloween makes me sentimental, and I'll be hoping to catch some of my favorite spooky shows between now and then. Hoping you all can tell me what your favorite spooky Halloween favorites are?? Do you have any to recommend that may fly"under the radar"?? I'm looking for new options! Let me know, and I'll see you soon

  Hi IFB friends!! SO very sorry I cannot be there live tonight, but I promise I will be back in a few weeks! I will NOT leave you hanging though, there’s so much going on - here’s what we  have to  go over till then…   As we talked about a few episodes back we reviewed Zack Snyder’s Army of the  Dead, and  revealed that that film is going to be just the tip of the iceberg in this new universe he is creating.  Well  he didn’t waste any time! He’s already dropped a trailer for a prequel in the series: Army of Thieves  for Netflix . This one will focus on our safecracking friend Ludwig Dieter leading a group of aspiring thieves on a romp, in the earliest days of the zombie outbreak serving as a backdrop. Check out the trailer here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OdbXnboJCVw      Now I know I like to tell you about stuff that is coming soon, well this one is not exactly soon, it’ll be Thanksgiving, which I guess will get here soon enough! But seeing as how the trailer made me cry, I’ve j

  Hi IFB friends!  Great show last night, hope you all enjoyed it. Here are some fun links for you all to check out. I highly, highly recommend Dune. It is epic and delightful. Breathtakingly beautiful. It's the kind of scifi movie that makes us remember why we love this genre. Check out the trailer here:   https://youtu.be/8g18jFHCLXk NYPete recommends the Haunting of Hill House series on Netflix, and I could not agree more. This series was truly wonderful, exceedingly well crafted, painstaking attention to detail. In fact, if you've seen it already, watch it again...pay attention to the background details and prepare to have your mind blown. It's also full of heart. See more here: https://youtu.be/3eqxXqJDmcY My throw back, under the radar recommendation for the thriller season is 1980's The Changeling starring George C Scott. I dug up the original trailer! And John Colicos is in it!! Check it out here: https://youtu.be/UwUI7d5TgGA And now for the BIG NEWS: The Change
