Carmel: Who Killed Maria Marta?

Socialite Maria Marta García Belsunce was found dead in a bathtub at her home in a luxury gated complex. At first appearance, her death is ruled a tragic accident until an autopsy discovers she happens to have been shot numerous times – in the head! We’re fascinated by this just by the fact that they managed to completely disregard that in the initial findings. Her husband is then accused of murder, of which he denies. Almost like a real-life whodunnit, the case is entirely focussed on a small community of potential suspects, the police themselves were not called but an investigation ensues. The case made headlines in the media at the time of the murder in 2002 and the during the subsequent years of the investigation, dominating their print runs for months even superseding political news but who did kill Maria Marta? The limited series consists of four parts.

Operation Christmas Drop

Erica is a tough political aide who is sent by congress to investigate and report what is commonly known as ‘Operation Christmas Drop’, a military operation that is under scrutiny as the government decides it is a non-essential spend of funding. When Erica arrives and meets Captain Andrew who heads up the operation she tries hard but fails to show she is not interested in him as a love interest which, I guess surprises herself more than it does viewers who expect nothing less from the Netflix Christmas romcoms by now. Erica’s report writing becomes an impossible task when she learns that the project delivers not just Christmas presents but food and medicine essentials to over 30,000 people across 56 Islands. Her new quest will be to convince Congress of the importance of the operation and NOT to fall in love, of course.

The Spongebob Movie: Spongebob on the Run

Director Tim Hill delivers a re-packaged by way of CGI, Spongebob Squarepants. When Spongebobs longtime friend ‘Gary’ the snail disappears, Spongebob and Patrick begin a quest to find their friend, no matter the cost! Nickelodeon Films and Netflix team up to produce this all-new shiny version of the well-loved character who is bound to reach a whole new generation of youngsters. Will original fans be put off by the new polished look? We’re all for retro here at N.O.N towers but progress is progress, right? Plus, there is a cameo spot from Keanu Reeves as ‘sage’, you can’t argue with that!
