For this new weekend, we offer you two very different shows with a series mixing animation and live action (Lost Ollie) and the epic conclusion in a post-apocalyptic world (See)!
Check out our mini-reviews and have a great weekend!
You can still have a longer list of the releases under the “This Friday” section on the homepage.
Netflix offers us with Lost Ollie, a short series (4 episodes) hybrid mixing animation and live action with this adaptation of the novel by William Joyce, Ollie’s Odyssey. The story, which seems very simple at start, proposes to follow Ollie, a stuffed animal, who has to find his owner and best friend but he has memory problems. His memories will come back to him as he goes along. The story turns out to be much more interesting and darker than the trailer and the first images have shown. The technical and animation work by ILM is really impressive and we are totally immersed in this story and what happens to our super cute hero. One of the very interesting elements of the story is that only children can hear Ollie as a reminder to adults that they are losing their capacity of imagination and innocence. And we realize that the story is more for adults and parents than for children. We advise you not to let small children watch this series alone. Don’t miss this interesting series!
Lost Ollie is an epic adventure about a lost toy who braves the many dangers of childhood as he searches the countryside to reunite with the boy who lost him; and the story of the boy who lost more than a best friend. It’s a heartwarming tale for the child in us all, remembering those special souls that we’ve lost but who forever changed our lives.
See – Season 3
For its final season, See wastes no time in setting up its stakes and picks up right where the previous season left off! Jason Momoa is always as charismatic and his look is really close to the one of the Ronins. On the other hand, we are less interested in the other characters and especially Queen Kane and her sister Maghra, the first one is always in her shenanigans while the second one is always making strange decisions. The great interest of this season comes from the fact that one of the camps discovers the use of explosives and I might as well say it right away, it has a devastating effect. The series will take us to an epic finale and we will see many confrontations that are the real strength of this series with fights always well choreographed and intense.
“See” is set in a brutal and primitive future, hundreds of years after humankind has lost the ability to see. In season three, almost a year has passed since Baba Voss (Jason Momoa) defeated his nemesis brother Edo and bid farewell to his family to live remotely in the forest. But when a Trivantian scientist develops a new and devastating form of sighted weaponry that threatens the future of humanity, Baba returns to Paya in order to protect his tribe once more.
