Stan: What's New For July 28 - August 3, 2020

Poster for Under the Dome

Hello from the centre of Australia's COVID-19 disaster zone. For the next six weeks, as I've been working from home all this time, I will be confined to within 5km of where I live. Which is about 4.9km more than I've needed in the past couple of months. I've become quite the hermit!

Which makes me a pretty good judge of streaming content even if I say so myself. So here's what's been happening on Stan this past week, and my personal highlights.


The complete series (all 3 seasons) of Under the Dome, all about an entire town locked down with no escape. A little bit too on the nose, perhaps.

Then maybe season 4 of Ex On The Beach UK and Paul Hollywood Eats Japan offers some escapism.

Movies, Documentaries:

When the 2009 film Up In The Air was released, nobody thought that 11 years later that the film about excessive air travel would join the fantasy genre, what with the current travel restrictions around the world. Which makes movies like The Trip to Greece a bit hard to watch ... or maybe just the right stuff to take you back to the good old days, depending which side of the glass full/empty divide you are in.

Australian film Acute Misfortune is based on Erik Jensen’s award-winning biography of Archibald Prize-Winning painter, Adam Cullen, while critically acclaimed The Kite Runner, also based on a book, it a worth watch too.

Then there's Crank, which by Jason Statham action film standards, is actually a pretty good one.
