Marlowe (2023)

MARLOWE | Official Trailer | Only In Theatres - February 15

Liam Neeson and action movies go hand in hand, but he’s just as captivating in this 1939-set neo-noir crime thriller mystery drama. Based on the John Banville novel The Black-Eyed Blonde, Marlowe is about private detective Philip Marlowe (Neeson) hired by an heiress to help find her missing lover. When Marlowe discovers that the man is dead, the investigation takes some twists and turns.

Also starring Diane Kruger, Jessica Lange, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, and Alan Cumming, Marlowe wasn’t well received by critics, though a few have pointed out its positives. Sandra Hall of the Sydney Morning Herald calls the movie a “deluxe nostalgia trip guided by a director who really knows his way around the genre.” (The movie is directed by Neil Patrick Jordan, known for films like The Crying Game and Interview with the Vampire). Don’t expect the Neeson you know from movies like Taken, but it’s a softer portrayal that proves the actor’s versatility in bringing the intensity down a few notches still commanding the screen.

Stream Marlowe on Prime Video.

A Good Person (2023)

Morgan Freeman and Florence Pugh in A Good Person.

Florence Pugh currently stars in the box office hit Dune: Part Two, but she’s also impressing audiences on the small screen with her lead performance in A Good Person, a neglected drama from 2023. Scrubs star Zach Braff wrote and directed the film, in which Pugh plays Allison, a woman who was once engaged to her high school boyfriend, Nathan (Chinaza Uche). But shortly after her engagement, Allison causes a car accident that claims the lives of Nathan’s sister, Molly (Nichelle Hines), and her husband, Jesse (Toby Onwumere).

One year later, Allison is attempting to kick her addiction to painkillers when she reunites with Nathan and Molly’s father, Daniel (Morgan Freeman). As Daniel attempts to forgive Allison, they reenter each other’s lives, and she tries to make amends with Ryan (Celeste O’Connor), the daughter that Molly and Jesse left behind. It sounds complicated, but the movie is accessible, and both Pugh and Freeman are great when they share the screen together.

A Good Person is streaming on Amazon Prime Video.

Deadland (2023)

Deadland Trailer #1 (2023)

U.S. Border agent Angel Waters (Roberto Urbina) gets himself in hot water in Deadland when an immigrant on the brink of death dies while at a remote border outpost. Waters and two of his fellow agents secretly bury the man’s body in the desert, but the strange and sinister-looking man seems to keep coming back, haunting the men who can’t seem to get rid of the body or their guilt.

The bone-chilling drama follows Waters as he deals with this traumatizing situation and the questions that keep coming. He comes to a realization that the divisions between the two sides of the border aren’t quite as distinct and simple to delineate as he thought, both physically and emotionally. Deadland will spark conversation as you try to decipher the deeper meaning behind the captivating, not to mention topical, plot.

Stream Deadland on Prime Video.

Repeating lyrics, words, and tunes help kids learn and follow along, expanding their vocabulary from just a few words to many. Bingo is one of those classic kids’ songs, and with 432 million views, this video is a wonderful integration of both the song and visuals, as well as elements of interactivity as kids get older.
Along with a soothing male voice singing the tune are colorful images of the farmer and his dog, Bingo. The letters are highlighted on-screen as they are slowly sung. Kids are also encouraged to do things like pat their tummy or head in sync with the sounds. The video is under three minutes long and it repeats the sequence over and over with different actions each time. Kids will be singing along in no time and asking for the video to be played over and over again.

3 Peacock movies you need to stream this weekend (March 15-17)
A man and a woman talk in The Place Beyond the Pines.

With the 2024 Oscars now just a memory and college basketball about to go into overdrive with March Madness, this weekend feels a bit empty in terms of movie choices. Of course, you could see Kung Fu Panda 4 or Dune: Part Two in theaters again, or you can stay at home and see what's streaming.

If you do, there's a great selection awaiting you at an unlikely streamer. Peacock has a killer lineup, with the Oscar-winning Oppenheimer now streaming. But there are other movies, most neglected and woefully underrated, that are worth your time, too. One is an epic crime drama, another is a campy comedy from the '90s, and the final recommended movie is a modern Western starring a former Batman.
