When they first announced that CBS would develop a sequel to The Silence of the Lambs, it was hard to imagine who could portray the legendary character of Clarice Starling after Jodie Foster’s Oscar-winning appearance in the 1991 adaptation of Thomas Harris . Job. Fortunately for fans new and old, Rebecca Breeds was more than ready to take on the title role. Supported by a great cast consisting of Michael Cudlitz, Lucca De Oliveira, Kal Penn, Nick Sandow, Devyn Tyler and Marnee Carpenter, Breeds pays homage to the character as she makes Clarice her own and the brave, vulnerable, traumatized person breathed new life and brilliant FBI agent.
The series delves deep into the untold personal story of Clarice Starling when she returned to the field in 1993, a year after the events of The Silence of the Lambs. Exploring her past as well as her complex psychological makeup gives viewers a glimpse into her challenging childhood full of painful family secrets that have haunted them all their lives, and how those previous events, including her confrontation with Buffalo Bill, make her who she is today. One of my favorite parts about Clarice, however, is how the psychological crime series avoids feeling like a different process, and its aesthetic goes well with the darker tone of the show’s narrative. Clarice may only appear in four episodes, but consider me addicted.
GRANT HERMANNS ‘RECOMMENDATION: Hell’s Kitchen

While restaurants are slowly reopening and people are enjoying eating out again, there is no better time than now to revisit or catch up on the exhilaration at Gordon Ramsay’s Hell’s Kitchen. A series of competitions in which aspiring chefs compete against each other and promise to run their own restaurant, funded by Ramsay. While the process is melodramatic and over the top, even in the most unbelievable moments, the series turns out to be absolutely thanks to the interesting characters and the blonde hothead himself from start to finish.
RECOMMENDATION FROM MAGGIE DELA PAZ: Sunny (2011)
Click here to buy!
Written and directed by Kang Hyeong-Cheol, the film initially opens with Im Na-mi, a middle-aged woman trying to grant her dying friend’s wish to reunite her group of high school friends after 25 years of separation. The story is told in two alternating timelines that show young and older versions of the seven long-lost friends who have the opportunity to reconnect with each other. Throughout the film, they will realize how important their friendship is to them and how their breakup affects each of their adult lives, while also leading us to the important moments that cement their bond.
This 2011 comedy-drama is probably my favorite South Korea film of all time because it’s a well-executed coming-of-age story that highlights friendships among women. The 1980s aspect is definitely one of the best parts of the film, told in a non-linear plot full of humor and nostalgia. What I also loved about Sunny is that there was a strong main cast that allowed each character to stand out in their own way. In addition to the heartwarming and funny scenes, the compelling chemistry between the cast would really draw you to any character and make you care about their friendship.
In celebration of Women’s History Month, I think now is the perfect time for you to visit Sunny!
JEFF AMES ‘RECOMMENDATION: Training day

It’s been almost 20 years since Denzel Washington yelled, “King Kong doesn’t give a shit on me!” on Antoine Fuqua’s training day; and yet its performance still sizzles like a juicy sirloin – perfectly seasoned and perfectly prepared. The film itself about a rookie LAPD narcotics officer (Ethan Hawke) who spends his first day riding and studying next to Washington’s jaded (if not always fake) vet becomes a bit redundant by the second hour. and the final resolution always left a bad taste. Meanwhile, Washington triggers David Ayer’s sizzling dialogue with manic glee and clearly enjoys the chance to get dirty in rogue clothes – a face of the charismatic heroes he normally plays. Here he uses that charisma to portray a character who is part delusion, part Satan, all business. The man won his second Oscar for the role against Russell Crowe (A Beautiful Ghost), Sean Penn (I’m Sam), Will Smith (Ali) and Tom Wilkinson (In The Bedroom). That’s good company; And make no mistake: As good as these actors were in their respective roles, they don’t give a shit about Denzel on training day.
