Anne with an E

Remember the book Anne of Green Gables? Well, fans of this classic children’s story will have a new adaptation available to watch on Netflix this week. Watch the first season of Anne with an “E” in this new adaptation on Friday, May 12th on Netflix. Watch Anne Shirley brave her new life after being adopted by an elderly couple and make new friends along the way again in this new series on Netflix later this week. Be sure to watch the trailer too.


Absolutely Anything

Watch a movie with the last performance by Robin Williams and the first movie the Monty Python crew has worked together on since 1983’s The Meaning of Life. Directed by Terry Jones, Absolutely Anything stars Simon Pegg as the man given magical powers by aliens and his dog played by Williams helps him through the journey. The movie was released in the UK back in 2015 but is now set to be available to theaters in the states this week. Absolutely Anything will be in theaters Friday, May 12th. Read more about the film and be sure to check out the trailer too.


Birthdays the Beginning

Gamers will have a fun time with this garden building cube game where animals will evolve depending upon the temperature, geography, and diversity of each ecosystem. It’s evolution in a cute cube game. Birthday the Beginning will be available to gamers Tuesday, May 9th. Check it out on Steam and then go build yourself an awesome little world and find out what creatures will evolve tomorrow. I’d like dinosaur land, please!


I am looking forward to watching the series Anne with an “E” on Netflix this month, but Absolutely Anything might be a fun watch too despite some of its negative reviews. I like Simon Pegg but the fact that Robin Williams, John Cleese, Eric Idle, and Michael Palin are directed by Terry Jones in this film is the real reason to see Absolutely Anything.
