The Mauritanian (VOD)
The Mauritanian, based on a book by Mohamedou Ould Salahi, who was held at Gitmo for 14 years despite his innocence in relation to 9/11, turns out to be a relatively upbeat film.
Kevin Macdonald directs the legal drama starring Tahar Rahim, Jodie Foster, Shailene Woodley, and Benedict Cumberbatch.
Thanks to Ould Salahi’s optimistic frame of reference, the story shows the problematic detention of innocents in the wake of such a tragic event without painting anyone as demonic. It’s worth a look!

Boss Level (Hulu)
If you didn’t fall in love with Frank Grillo in his many action roles, include The Purge: Anarchy and its follow-up. The Purge: Election Year or his role as Alvey Kulina in the DirecTV drama, Kingdom, then surely Boss Level will do the trick.
Nope, we haven’t seen this yet, but do we need to see it to know it’s going to kick ass?
Grillo stars as a man living the same day over and over again, but it’s more Russian Doll than Groundhog Day, and it ends with his death every time.
Costarring with Grillo is Mel Gibson, Naomi Watts, and Michelle Yeoh. And maybe it’s just me, but the title and the premise have me wondering if he’s the lead in a video game waiting for someone to reach Boss Level so he can make it out alive.
The thrilling Marvel saga is coming to an end, and it’s bound to be epic!
After all that Wanda has endured, will she be able to defeat her enemies? Or will her powers overcome her?
10/9c Wynonna Earp (Syfy)
We’re not going to lie; the way this show has been treated for what is now its final season brings us to tears.
First, financial woes left it in limbo for years, and then COVID-19 gutted the wild ride to the end.
Well, Wynonna Earp returns for its final run of episodes. Before the series signs off for good, there are several things we Earpers demand: a WayHaught wedding, a WyDoc reunion, a happy Jeremy.
So even if we can’t #BringWynonnaHome, we can still make sure it’s one heck of a final ride.
