Homecoming Was Just The Start, Beyoncé Has Two More Projects In The Pipeline With Netflix

Great news for those of us with Homecoming on repeat...

If there’s one thing that Beyoncé loves, it’s to surprise her fans. With the release of Homecoming on Netflix last week as well as her 40-track album of the same name, things have never been so good for Beyoncé stans.

Until now.

According to Variety, Homecoming was the first of three projects that Beyoncé has coming out with Netflix worth a huge $60 million. There’s no word yet on what they’ll be about exactly, but we can probably expect them to drop with no warning in the middle of the work week…

While there’s no confirmation, it wouldn’t be super surprising if one was an On The Run II Tour concert special.

Homecoming, the behind-the-scenes documentary of Queen Bey’s long road to her 2018 Coachella performance, shows the singer’s dedication to reaching her goals and is reminding everyone how bloody amazing she is and how far she’s willing to push herself.

Vulture reports HBO was also interested in the deal after having aired her 2016 Lemonade film, as well as her 2014 On The Run Tour concert special and the 2013 documentary Life Is But A Dream. However, it’s believed they backed down when Netflix offered the rumoured $60m.

Variety also reports the audio from the Lemonade film, which was previously only available on Tidal, will be on all streaming services from April 23 (US time). Homecoming is already available to listen to on other streaming services such as Spotify.

The publication also believes it’s highly likely we’ll get two new albums along with the two new films.

Beyoncé tells the cameras in Homecoming, “What people don’t see is the sacrifice,” and after seeing everything she did in the lead up to that Coachella performance, we really hope she’s enjoying some time to relax right now.

All we know is, as soon as those two new films drop, we’ll be ready. Until then, we’ll keep playing Homecoming on repeat…

Netflix Might Have Just Created A Solution For Those Of Us Who Never Know What We Want To Watch

This could be life changing!

Netflix is reportedly experimenting with a new feature to help those of us who never actually know what we want to watch.

I don’t know about you, but, to me, this is exactly what Netflix has been lacking all these years, something for those of us who are way too indecisive.

It seems as though enough of us indecisive viewers have complained about it for long enough, the streaming service is going to do something about it.

According to Unilad, Netflix is experimenting with the possibility of a shuffle play function to save you time on deciding what to watch. But it seems as though at this stage it’s only being tested to allow users to shuffle episodes of TV shows.

A spokesperson from Netflix told the website, “We are testing the ability for members to play a random episode from different TV series on the Android mobile app. These tests typically vary in length of time and by region, and may not become permanent.”

Deadline reports the feature will allow viewers to instantly watch an episode of their favourite show if they’re not looking for anything specific.

The TV shows that offered the feature would appear in a new row titled “Play a Random Episode” just like the “Continue Watching” and “Trending Now” rows.

When you click the thumbnail for the show, a random episode will play.

Sounds like heaven.

Dirty John Could Have Ended Very Differently If It Weren't For Veronica, The Real Hero Of The Story

She's the real hero.

WARNING: This post contains spoilers, but let’s be honest, you’ve had plenty of time to listen to the Dirty John podcast or watch the series on Netflix, so read at your own risk.

For those of you are up to date, you might see Veronica Newell (Juno Temple), whose real name is Jacqueline Newell, as a mean, spoiled rich girl. But to me, she’s the true hero of the story.

While Veronica’s mother Debra Newell (Connie Britton) falls for John Meehan (Eric Bana) almost instantly, Veronica realises as soon as she greets him at the front door (huge mistake by the way, Debra) that there’s something off about him.

John tells her that Debra “has a really nice place”, to which Veronica quickly responds, “Mmmhmm. It’s like that on purpose.”

As soon as her suspicions are raised, we see Veronica, a fiercely protective daughter and sister, investigate the highly dangerous man who has her mum eating out the palm of his hand.

She also does most of this work herself with a little help from her sister Terra (Julia Garner), cousin Toby (Kevin Zegers) and a female PI (Judy Reyes).

We watch on as Debra marries this man her daughters and nephew have no trust in, despite the fact she’s been given hard evidence of some of his wrongdoings.

Veronica’s investigation is the reason her mother eventually sees the light and the reason her family survives John’s terrorising – OK, yes, Terra fatally stabbing him definitely helped, but you get the point.

Not only this, but Veronica also provides some much needed light to the show. Her one-liners and attitude are probably the main reasons I kept watching. She’s unapologetically herself and incredibly confident – to put it simply, she’s a bad bitch, and I mean that with the most respect.

A great scene shows Veronica selling a Chanel bag so she can afford to pay for her private investigator. The saleswoman agrees to buy the bag and she tells her, “Yeah, you will. And I’ll tell you for exactly how much.”

Ladies, let’s be honest, we all need a little of that confidence when negotiating!

One of my favourite Veronica scenes, however, was when she’s getting dropped off at home by an Uber and realises John has found her apartment and has been stalking her. She makes the driver chase him and when they lose him they head straight for Terra’s house. They search the outside of the property and Veronica forces the driver to stay with her the whole night while she watches in case John has found where Terra lives.

It’s pretty clear from this scene that Veronica would do anything for the people she loves. She is the person I hope I would be in such a situation and we could all probably learn a thing or two from her.

While Terra is the one who eventually kills John, without Veronica’s suspicions and investigating, who knows what would have happened to the Newell family.
