A Pamela Anderson documentary, plus 4 other big Netflix releases to stream next week




Netflix is ​​kicking off the release of a lively new documentary about Pamela Anderson later this month, but there are a handful of other big Netflix releases as well the streaming giant in the next few days – including everything by Peter Jackson Lord of the Rings Trilogy based on a documentary series about a multi-millionaire German shepherd named Gunther.

If you need some recommendations on what to watch on the streamer this weekend and beyond, here are some upcoming Netflix titles to check out and add to your watchlist.

Pamela, a love story

come first time on January 31stis the above Pamela, a love story – a documentary from director Ryan White about the blonde bombshell who defined the 90’s and now she sets out to define herself with this film.

To “take back” her narrative, so to speak, she now tells her story with everything from never-before-seen personal photos to diary entries and more. Through Netflix, this film is “a first-person account of what it’s really like to be an icon, a sex symbol, an actor, and a mother of two—all while everyone is watching.”

The film follows the arc of Anderon’s career from small town girl to internationally acclaimed playboy model and sex symbol. “The film features refreshingly candid reflections from Anderson on the sometimes tumultuous but always heartfelt experiences that have shaped her today,” Netflix continues, “including their explosive, whirlwind romances and the infamous stolen tape that led to the first viral video in the Internet was and would be a turning point in her career.”

Adding Anderson in a Netflix interview about being in the film, “I was very hesitant, but looking back, I feel empowered. And I hope so [my story] inspires people to have a great time and not worry so much.”

You guys + other new Netflix releases to try

What else awaits the streamer is Kenya Barris’ directorial debut You guys – starring Jonah Hill and Eddie Murphy – it hits Netflix on January 27th.

Co-written by Barris and Hill, the film plays on the well-known “Meet the Parents” story involving a couple and their respective parents, this time with the inclusion of a culture clash.

You guys starts with a nice meeting. Hill’s Ezra Cohen accidentally gets into someone’s car (owned by “Amira”, played by Lauren London) after mistakenly assuming she was his ride. Once the shock wears off, there’s an offer of a date and the two hit it off quickly and easily.

So far, so good. Finally, of course, it’s time to get to know the families. Ezras are Jewish and (according to Netflix) “half-awake” parents, played by David Duchovny and Julia Louis-Dreyfus, while Amiras are Muslim and “unyielding” (played by Eddie Murphy and Nia Long). Of course there will be conflict and merriment.

“The one thing they have in common?” a promotional item from the streamer teases about the movie. “The ability to mercilessly interfere in their children’s lives with hilarious results. For proof, look no further than the film’s teaser, which shows Hill confronting Murphy and Long while Ezra asks Amira’s parents for permission to propose to her. The venue? The legendary Roscoe’s Chicken and Waffles in Los Angeles.”

Additional titles

In the meantime, here’s what else is coming to Netflix in the next few days, including a popular fantasy film franchise and a wild novelty King of the Tigers-like documentary series.

The Great British Baking Show: The Pros: If you are a fan of The Great British Baking Show, a new season of its “professional” spinoff — which, if you ask me, removes perhaps the best aspect of the original show, the competition among amateur bakers — is coming to Netflix. The series’ iteration, The Professionals, pits teams of talented British pastry chefs against one another. Season 6 release date: February 1st.

Lord of the Rings: This is obviously not a Netflix release originating from the streamer, but these will still be some of the biggest titles to stream on the platform next week and into the future. Peter Jackson’s original Lord of the rings Trilogy is coming to Netflix US from February 1st.


Netflix documentaries Gunther’s millions

Finally a Netflix release to satisfy the documentary fans among you:

The 4-part documentation Gunther’s millionsCome on February 1st, is the wild but true story of a German shepherd named Gunther who inherited a fortune of $400 million. And it gets crazier from there: the wealth behind this multimillionaire dog, inherited from a mysterious countess, has nurtured an empire of riches that spans two forts – one that includes luxury mansions and even a pop music group.

From Netflix’s official synopsis of the series:

“Multimillionaire Gunther VI. lives in the lap of luxury: he travels in private planes, eats gold flake steaks for dinner and surrounds himself with a glamorous entourage of speakers and entertainers. He is also a German Shepherd Dog. According to legend, Gunther’s great-grandfather was originally owned by a mysterious countess whose son tragically died. Having no heirs, the Countess bequeathed her considerable fortune to her beloved dog, placing him in the care of her son’s close friend, an Italian pharmaceutical heir and aspiring impresario named Maurizio Mian… It’s a fairy tale that’s both beautiful and bizarre, and of course, questions abound.”



Gwyneth Paltrow takes the stand to give evidence in ski crash trial

Gwyneth Paltrow took the witness stand on day four of her ski accident trial and claimed to be the “victim.”

The US actress, 50, is being sued by retired optometrist Terry Sanderson. who claims she bumped into him and left him with significant brain injuries.

His defense is seeking up to $3,276,000 (£2,666,828) in damages, said Mr Lawrence Buhler, who is representing Ms Paltrow.

Meanwhile, Ms Paltrow, described by her legal team as a “conservative” skier, is suing Sanderson for a dollar, claiming he was the one who crashed into her.

Ms. Paltrow took the witness stand for questioning and began her testimony by describing herself as an “intermediate” skier and familiar with the rules of skiing.

She said she knew skiers had to leave their contact details in a collision, but that her ski instructor Eric Christiansen left hers for her.

“So since I was hit by Mr. Sanderson and it was his fault, I’m assuming that Eric … who was there at the time said I’m going to leave all your information because my kids were waiting for me,” she said.

“I would not have left the crime scene without leaving my information, and my information was left (by Eric) … I know afterwards that he did it. I wasn’t there when it was given.’

Ms Paltrow wore a navy blue skirt and button-down blouse and occasionally drank from a glass bottle.

She continued to deny that she engaged in “risky behavior” on the day of the collision.

“I have not shown any risky behavior. I would not engage in risky behavior with or without my children,” she said.

“I’ve always been open and honest with my kids and they know me very well.”

Ms Paltrow repeated several times that Mr Sanderson drove into her from behind.


“My daughter was down the hill, my son was on my left, so I was skiing and my eyes weren’t fixed on my son when Mr. Sanderson skied right in my back,” she said.

“At first I was confused and didn’t know exactly what was going on. It’s a very strange thing to happen on a ski slope. I froze and I would say I was very upset a few seconds later.’

She added: “(I thought) Is this a prank? Is someone doing something kinky? … my mind was very quick trying to figure out what was happening.’

According to Ms Paltrow’s statement, the couple had “collapsed” and their bodies “almost spooned”.

To illustrate, a member of Mr. Sanderson’s legal team attempted to reenact the sequence of events in the courtroom, with Ms. Paltrow giving her instructions.

Mr. Sanderson, who was also present in the courtroom, watched the recovery.


As the proceedings progressed, Ms Paltrow admitted that neither her ski instructor nor her children had seen the incident and had no recollection that fellow skier Craig Ramon was there.

dr Wendell Gibby has previously testified that Mr Sanderson’s head trauma was likely caused by a skier crashing into him (Image: AP).

Mr Ramon has previously testified at the trial, saying he saw the actress “hit” Mr Sanderson.

“I didn’t believe what he said,” Ms. Paltrow said. “I don’t think he saw what he thought he saw. He said he was 40 feet away and color blind. I don’t know how he can be positive with what he saw, especially with how much he changed his story.

“If you have two people in ski gear with helmets and they’re 40 feet apart, I don’t know how you can tell who’s who.”

She added: “Mr Sanderson hit me and that is categorically the truth.”

Ms Paltrow claimed that when you’re the victim of an accident, your psychology doesn’t necessarily think about the person who committed it.

Guest Post: How I Found Balance and Flexibility as a Working Mom in Film and Animation




By Sherene Strausberg

my first movie “cool for you” was admitted to 39 film festivals and received several awards, including a Silver Anthem Award last month. As an independent filmmaker with no financial backing or creative support team, I myself produced, directed, animated, scored, and mixed/edited the audio for an animated micro-short film. I’m proud of this achievement because it could only have happened for me due to the unique circumstances when a long, tortuous creative career as a woman in Hollywood, followed by a career change, met its abrupt culmination from an unexpected world pandemic. Let’s go back 30 years when I decided to become a film composer.

Without a single role model in film music and having never seen a woman win best film score at the Oscars, I decided in 1993 to pursue a career as a film composer. (It wasn’t until 1997 that Rachel Portman made history as the first woman to win the Academy Award for Best Original Score!) So, with no Hollywood ties, I took an educational path and majored in classical music composition at Indiana University, followed by a master’s degree in motion picture scoring from the North Carolina School of the Arts. Not only was I the only woman in my class of film composition students, I was also the only one who wasn’t married. I was more jealous of my classmates’ marital status than their gender. I wanted to get married but wasn’t sure how I would manage to find a spouse while pursuing such a competitive, gender-biased career. A solid marriage is more than just a partnership—it’s a support system. I wish I had had this support system during the earliest struggles of my education and career like my grad school classmates, as so often I felt discouraged or disappointed when trying to break into Hollywood.

I still longed for a lifelong partnership I’ve spent almost 10 years writing music for films, from short films to feature films, from short stories to documentaries. It was challenging because I wasn’t pursuing a role as a ghostwriter or orchestrator, but rather as an independent composer, with no agent or representation. It was my dream come true, but I didn’t have a work-life balance and was afraid I would never find a spouse, let alone have children. So, six years into my career as a film composer, I met a wonderful man, Todd, who I could see myself spending the rest of my life with. It was Todd who saw my frustrations and suggested an alternative career. I decided to go back to school and take evening graphic design classes at the UCLA Extension. The program gave me the flexibility to learn design at my own pace and the ability to choose courses that interested me most, such as B. Flash animation. Todd saw the combination of technical and creative skills I had through film scoring and sound engineering and accurately predicted that I could bring those skills to graphic design and excel.

My career transition coincided with our marriage, followed by a move from Los Angeles to New York City, and the birth of our two children. As a working mom with a 9am to 5pm graphic design job, I finally found a work/life balance. However, I quickly realized that being a parent doesn’t only take place from 5 p.m. to 9 a.m. It can be relentless 24/7. So I decided to start my own business and start my own company, 87th Street creative. I named it the generic “Creative” because I knew that while my work was strictly graphic design, there was a chance it could morph into something else. I was thrilled that with my own company, work-life balance and flexibility, we could have a third child. Even with three children, I was determined to continue pursuing my profession and my desire to be creative.


While promoting my graphic design business, I began learning motion design and animation: 2D, 3D, and character rigging. Within a few years, my company grew from a graphic design startup to an established motion design studio. And then everything came to an abrupt halt in March 2020 with the pandemic. Projects were canceled, customers stopped calling and there was no work. I was devastated as the seriousness of the pandemic quickly became apparent.

During the pandemic, I wasn’t a composer, designer, or animator; Suddenly I was the teacher, the lunch lady, the school nurse, the gym teacher and more, all rolled into one. We were lucky that my husband’s job continued uninterrupted, but I had to give up my creative work to look after our children while schools and daycare centers were closed. After so many years of creating a delicate balance between work and parenthood, everything fell to pieces and there was no balance. The long days of those early months of the pandemic have been such a struggle. I quickly realized I wasn’t the only one as the largest exit of women from the workforce occurred in the year after the pandemic.

Then something magical happened. A friend shared a book with me that he thought I would like it. It was called “Cool For You” and explained global warming to children. I read it to my own children, who were two, five and eight at the time. They all loved it. The book does a wonderful job of simplifying global warming for very young learners without scaring them, but also providing tangible, concrete ways they can help save the planet. Plus, the illustrations were so rich and beautiful that I wanted to bring them to life, with glowing fireflies, swaying trees, and more!

We were stuck in lockdown and had very few places to go, but the illustrations in this book were moving – in my imagination! I decided to turn the book into a film. I contacted the author and illustrator who gave me the rights. After 12-hour days with the kids at Google School and a homemade Lego camp, I spent three to five hours every night turning the book into an animated film after they went to bed. The results exceeded my wildest dreams: a simple idea became a film that was shown and awarded to thousands of children at film festivals around the world Movement award nominationthe highest recognition in the motion design industry.

A career in Hollywood was tough. A career in Hollywood as a woman was even more difficult. I gave up before I even tried being a working mom in Hollywood. Now I’ve returned to the film industry, but now on my own terms, with balance and flexibility and three kids in tow.


Emmy-nominated art director and founder of 87th Street Creative, Sherene Strausberg combines music, sound effects, and custom illustrations to create compelling animated videos for businesses and nonprofits. Her short film Cool For You will screen March 26 at 3 p.m. at the Garden State Film Festival. It will also be screened at Yale’s Environmental Film Festival, Montana’s International Wildlife Film Festival and Scotland’s Edinburgh Conservation Film Festival in April.
