Time again to take a look at what's been happening on the Australian streaming platform Stan for the past week.


Taking a look at what's new in terms of television content, it's a fairly quiet week, both in terms of new content and continuing series, but there is the season 5 premier of The Last Ship - new episodes of the sci-fi series will be coming on a weekly basis.

Movies, Documentaries:

There's quite a few interesting new movie additions.

The Gift was a movie that escaped the attentions of a lot of people, including myself, when it was released in 2015. 'The Gift' stars, was written and directed by Australia's own Joel Edgerton in his feature film directorial debut, and it's a bit of a hidden gem that could become a bit of a cult favourite now that it's on Stan.

Already mentioned in our monthly preview article, Mark Felt: The Man Who Brought Down the White House feels appropriate for today's times, even though it's a story set in the 70's.

Fans of Nordic Noir should enjoy A Conspiracy Of Faith, even though it's actually the third film in a trilogy of largely standalone films. Unfortunately, the two previous movies, 'Department Q: The Keeper of Lost Causes' and 'The Absent One', aren't on Stan, but a fourth film, 'Journal 64', is already in the works.

I hesitated before deciding which of these next two movies to highlight in this roundup, since both are in the "good, but not great" category and have similar ratings on IMDb. In the end, I decided to mention both Olympus Has Fallen and The Last Stand - two movies you're not likely to love, but probably not likely to hate either. Worth a watch on a day/night with nothing much else to do.

Here's the complete list of the new additions to Stan for the week of September 4 - 10, 2018:

The Last Ship - New Season (Season 5, Episode 1)

Kidding - Season 1, Episode 2
