We Said: Fifty Shades Darker deserves every ounce of pain inflicted upon it for coming THIS CLOSE to being superior to its frigid predecessor, however an incredible lack of stakes, drama, and passion have doomed it to the kiddie table.” Rating: 2.5 out of 5

The latest season of Netflix’s hit dramedy picks up where the last season left off, exploring the consequences of the mass break out the prison just faced. Tensions rise between rivaling gangs, inmates’ pasts are explored, and violence and abuse of power from the prison staff escalates in what many have called the series’ most intense season yet.

We Said: “[Director Roger] Spottiswoode has some fun showing us how silly we humans look from his vantage point, which is usually sitting right on James' shoulder.  You're not going to find a lot of dramatic tension in A Street Cat Named Bob, but thanks to winning performances by man and feline alike, the film always manages to land on its feet...or paws.” Rating: 3 out of 5
