A wild stock market story about a stationary video game retailer and the nature of infinity. That might sound like a rather boring topic, but both are actually the respective narrative bases for two new Netflix documentaries worth checking out – the newly released ones Eat the Rich: The GameStop Sagaand A journey to infinity.

This pair of titles, which dropped on Netflix this week (the GameStop release actually debuts on the streamer Today, September 28th) I think Netflix subscribers have some interesting content that’s a little off the beaten track. Compared to the normal influx of new Netflix releases, which tend to be dominated by lively new TV series like dahmer (currently the #1 Netflix series worldwide) and films like Allison Janney’s new action thriller Lou (currently the #2 Netflix movie worldwide).

Two new Netflix documentaries to watch

Eat the Rich: The GameStop Saga

Let’s take a closer look at these two new Netflix documentaries, starting with Eat the rich – this is actually a limited 3 episode documentary series.

In case you forgot the details the wild GameStop stock story from 2021, here is a short refresher. Essentially, Redditors managed to boost GameStop’s stock price by more than 5,000% in just a few days. Redditors on r/WallStreetBets tried to take advantage of the immense short interest in the video game retailer’s shares and began buying up en masse GameStop stock.

As demand drove the price higher, hedge funds short in the stock were forced to close their positions, which only pushed shares higher. “This lively, comedic documentary series, produced by Emmy and Academy Award winners Dan Cogan and Liz Garbus, captures the wild ride of a group of misfits who banded together online to save GameStop, a company they knew as… Children loved.” Netflix clarifies Eat the rich.

“They have banded together on Reddit, TikTok and Discord and used their thumbs to capitalize on a new age of investing to thwart Wall Street’s cynical ruse of burning the company down. By sending stocks ‘to the moon,’ these millennials felt like they could pin it on the man, once and for all.”

A journey to infinity

If you’re looking for something different to watch on Netflix, how about something that will blow your mind – that is, after you’ve first turned it into a pretzel while attempting to appreciate the depth of the universe explained here capture?

A journey to infinity is just such a streaming release. In this Netflix documentary, mathematicians, cosmologists and particle physicists give us a deep dive into the nature of infinity as a concept – and talk about its impact on the universe. The documentary is quite intriguing throughout, ranging from discussions of things like black holes to how, given enough time, all things eventually become one with everything. And there’s also this Doctor Strange-ian line:

“There are endless possibilities to make the universe finite. And there’s really only a few ways to make it infinite.”

Helena Bonham Carter and Ralph Fiennes have more in common than just playing the evil wizards Bellatrix and Voldemort Harry Potter Movie Franchise: You’ve both recently defended yourself as well potter author JK Rowling, who came under fire repeated comments in recent years, which many have perceived as transphobic.

In October, said Fiennes that the “abuse” Rowling is receiving is “appalling.” in one new interview with The times, Bonham Carter added her voice to support Rowling.

“It’s horrible, a bunch of crap. I think she was followed,” Bonham Carter said of the public’s reaction to Rowling’s comments. “It was taken to the extreme, people’s powers of judgment. She has allowed her opinion, especially when she has suffered abuse. Everyone carries their own trauma story and forms their own opinions from that trauma, and you have to respect people’s backgrounds and their pain. You don’t have to agree on everything – that would be crazy and boring. She doesn’t mean it aggressively, she’s just saying something from her own experience.”

When asked about other franchise stars who have spoken out against Rowling’s statements — including Daniel Radcliffe, who wrote a blog post for the LGBTQ advocacy group Trevor Project In response, Bonham Carter said, “I think they’re very conscious of protecting their own fandom and their generation.”

She also threw her support behind another controversial figure with ties to the potter Universe: Johnny Depp. She said she considers him “completely validated” since his win a libel suit against ex-wife belongs to amber. Depp is godfather to Bonham Carter’s two children with his former partner Tim Burton, and Bonham Carter and Depp have acted together on several Burton projects. “People will jump on this bandwagon because it’s the trend and it’s the poster child for it,” Bonham Carter said of Heard and the #MeToo movement.

She also shared her thoughts on the abandonment culture, saying: “There would be millions of people who would disqualify you if you looked closely enough at their personal lives. You can’t ban people. I hate the culture of abandonment. It’s gotten pretty hysterical and there’s a kind of witch hunt and lack of understanding.”
