Upon graduating from Emory University in the United States, top student and athlete Christopher McCandless (Emile Hirsch) decides to donate his entire twenty-four-thousand-dollar savings to a charity of his choice, before hitchhiking across the vast American country to Alaska, where he plans on living alone, in the wilderness. While on this journey, the young man finds himself encountering a number of characters that help shape him as a person and his own outlook on life. A thoroughly unique and at times emotional journey, with one or two questioning moments, but overall worthy of watching.

Aftermath (2021) – Review

Natalie Dadich (Ashley Greene) and Kevin Dadich (Shawn Ashmore) are a young couple, going through some pretty severe turmoil in their relationship, but the pair decide that it would be a good idea to purchase a new home, in an attempt of solving their problems. With a questionable past, the home does represent financial sense, but the pair end up with more than what they had originally bargained for. Aftermath is the latest, low budget flick to hit our Netflix screens, which may lack a little bit of creativity, but certainly comes across as watchable on the whole.
