1. Extraction

As some of you might know, Netflix released the much anticipated Chris Hemsworth action movie, Extraction.

For those who aren’t familiar with who he is. Hemsworth plays Thor in┬áMarvel superhero film, Avengers. Ring a Bell?

In the action-packed film, Extraction, he ditches the superhero persona most people associate him with. In the film which has since received rave reviews world over, he plays a black-market mercenary who has nothing to lose and is hired to rescue the kidnapped son of an imprisoned international crime lord. But in the murky underworld of weapons dealers and drug traffickers, an already deadly mission approaches the impossible.

To say the least, the film is nothing but divine. However, if you are one of those people who do never succumb to FOMO, just like me, my best advice would be not to rob yourself of this slice of perfect TV just because its trending or was released recently.
