News VOD 52/22: ‘Daggers in the back: The mystery of the Glass Onion’, mystery in the Aegean

VOD news brings you the best new releases of the week on Netflix, HBO Max, Amazon Prime Video, Disney+… And… can we say that we are already at Christmas? At least, at Christmas, so there is a brief, but well-nourished menu with which to liven up the evening. As a main course, you see, Daggers in the Back: The Glass Onion Mystery. But there is more.

Above all, there is more on Netflix, which this week is contained in the number of releases, but it does so prioritizing quality. And it’s not just going for the premiere in Daggers in the Back: The Glass Onion Mystery, eye. We highlight only three, but there are no less striking ones, according to the tastes of each one: the new film of Roald Dahl’s Matilda: The Musicalthe new season of Emily in Paris.

We begin, however, with Daggers in the Back: The Glass Onion Mystery, one of the cinematographic phenomena of the year at all levels and one of Netflix’s biggest bets for it, and it is that not all the films that the platform releases in theaters enjoy the exposure window that this one has had. Not much less. But daggers in the back it deserved it, apparently, and it has had its revenue, after which it can already be enjoyed for streaming.

Daggers in the Back: The Glass Onion Mystery is the sequel to daggers in the backwritten and directed in 2019 by Rian Johnson (Star Wars: The Last Jedi) and an unexpected hit that has already become a franchise and that Netflix will exploit until it stops compensating. The film is a copy of the previous one and runs in the same way in the tone of black comedy and intrigue of the typical classic detective plot.

Similarly, a first-rate cast headed once again by Daniel Craig in the role of the fine private investigator Benoit Blanc is the hallmark of the film, a sort of rehash of the classic Agatha Christie stories that Kenneth Branagh has expertly revived in in recent years and that Johnson has managed to recreate by minimally changing the formula, but updating it with enough grace and intelligence to reap success.

The Witcher: Origin of Blood is another sequel, in this case of the series you already know and in the same format. We highlight its launch due to the highlight of the title, despite the redundancy, although the only real highlight, at least a priori, is the presence of Michelle Yeoh (Tiger and dragon, Everything at once everywhere) leading an adventure that dates back thousands of years to those experienced by Geralt de Rivia.

However, the previous criticism is crushing it and if we add to it -or subtract it, rather- the goodbye of Henry Cavill, everything seems to indicate that we are at the beginning of the end of, it must also be said, botch that has made Netflix with this adaptation. That said, a warning if you are going to see them yes or yes: it opens tomorrow, December 25. We anticipate it, precisely, because it is not usual.

Alice in Borderland

Finally, something that is not usual either, such as highlighting a new season of a series that has not had anywhere near the success of others. But is that Alice in Borderland he deserves it. Its first season premiered at the end of 2020 and this second one has been waiting, but it has finally arrived. It’s a Japanese dystopian fantasy series and if you haven’t seen it, don’t even think about watching the trailer below. Go to Netflix and watch the first season.
