Weekend viewing tips: Bullet Train, Stromboli, Pamela and more


At iCulture we regularly write about streaming video services and useful features to get more out of these services. But what are you going to watch on your Apple devices? We pay attention to that in this section. You can watch various new films and series this weekend.

We hardly watch traditional TV anymore. Streaming video services such as Apple TV+ (try for free), Netflix, Disney+ and Amazon Prime Video are more important than ever. But local providers such as NLZiet (two weeks free!), Videoland, CineMember and Ziggo also have plenty to offer. More series are added every week and it is so nice if you know which series, films and documentaries really stand out. That is why we have made a selection.

New on Apple TV+: Dear Edward

This book adaptation is about a boy who was the only one to survive a plane crash. The first three episodes are now available, followed by a new one every week.

In the first episode of Dear Edward, we see hectic situations as families prepare for a flight to Los Angeles. What they don't know at the time is that the plane will crash with Edward as the only survivor. As a result, he can no longer make up for the quarrel he just had with his mother. The series is based on the book of the same name by Ann Napolitano, which describes how people deal with grief after a terrible event.

Watch: Dear Edward

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

At: Disney+

Also mentioned last time, but really available to watch now. Queen Ramonda, Shuri, M'Baku, Okoye and the Dora Milaje fight to protect their nation from intervening world powers after the death of King T'Challa. As the Wakandans strive to embrace their next chapter, the heroes must band together with the help of War Dog Nakia and Everett Ross and blaze a new path for the kingdom of Wakanda.

On the island of Stromboli, she ends up with guru Jens with some other problem cases, who will help them forget the misery of their past.

    Bullet Train

    Shown on: Netflix

    Bullet Train is an exciting story with Brad Pitt, set in a high-speed train. This immediately makes the formula clear: no one can get off the train and there will be a lot of chases and scrambling parties. Two hitmen (also brothers) with code names Mandarin and Citroen must deliver the son of a high crime boss to Kyoto station, including a large suitcase with gold and money. What they don't know, however, is that there are more assassins aboard the train, including Ladybug (Brad Pitt), who has decided to renounce violence, much to the dismay of his boss (Sandra Bullock). Ladybug is therefore unarmed on the train. His assignment is to steal the briefcase with gold and money and then get out. But that also turns out not to be very easy.
