Tuesday: Jane The Virgin season finale

The time has finally come, the fifth and unfortunately also final season of the comedy series “Jane The Virgin” is coming to Netflix. The series around the title heroine Jane Villanueva (Gina Rodriguez) is teased like a soap opera, but by no means superficial – “Jane The Virgin” skilfully targets itself in this regard and has therefore already won quite a few Emmy and Golden Globe nominations and awards received.

With the Polish thriller drama “The Hater”, Netflix has added the 2020 winner of the prestigious Tribeca Film Festival in the “Best International Feature Film” category to its program.

The film is about the young student Tomasz (Maciej Musialowski), who takes a job at a PR agency after being kicked out of university because of plagiarism. Here he is paid to foment hate campaigns in the social media – and realizes very quickly that this also has consequences in the real world.

Thursday: “Transformers” supplies

On Thursday (July 30th) the “Transformers: War For Cybertron Trilogy” starts with the first chapter called “Siege”.
