Stan: What's New For September 10 - 16, 2019

With the school holidays just around the corner, time to take a look at what's been happening at Stan this past week.


Two new series has just arrived on Stan, one from Hulu and another one from British Channel 4.

From Hulu comes Ramy, this smart comedy tells the story of Ramy, a first-generation Egyptian-American living in New Jersey, having to balance between living as a member of the Muslim community and his life as a Millennial.

Gameface is another funny British comedy series that follows 30-something Marcella, who is struggling through life despite the best intentions of her life coach and driving instructor.

Movies, Documentaries:

Before we get to the great movies that have just arrived, there's a new true-crime documentary series Murder In The Bayou from Showtime that investigates the unsolved murders of eight women in a small town in Louisiana.

Movies wise, while we don't have any big, new movies for you this week, there is the slightly older but still big World War Z, or better titled as 'Brad Pitt vs Zombies' (especially as the movie has nothing to do with the book of the same title).

I love a good courtroom drama, and I also love social advocacy films, and in 1997's The Rainmaker, both are combined, with some great acting from the two co-stars of the film, Matt Damon and Danny DeVito. Francis Ford Coppola directs based on a John Grisham novel of the same name, so you can't really go wrong.

The Lake House has been derided by critics, but moviegoers seem to love it (well, like it anyway), and I did too. The stars of Speed, Sandra Bullock and a "still in the wilderness, and hasn't yet returned as a cultural icon and cool as ice hitman" Keanu Reeves are reunited in this fantasy romance.

And finally, just in time for the school holidays and as previously mentioned in our September Stan preview, a bunch of Dreamworks animated hits, or possibly all of them, are coming in Stan over the next few weeks, and this week we have the likes of Puss In Boots, Madagascar, and Kung Fu Panda, and their spin-offs/sequels/prequels. More coming next week too!
