From Bedrooms to Billions: The PlayStation Revolution (2020, Documentary)

Coming in at just under three hours, this documentary is an incredibly comprehensive look at the ground-breaking work the Playstation system did in helping to shape the current video game market.

Created by filmmakers Anthony and Nicola Caulfield, ‘The PlayStation Revolution’ is the third film in a series of hidden stories around gaming’s greatest accomplishments. And it wouldn’t be as comprehensive a history without the stories from the people who were there on the front line, with those contributing on camera including Hideo Kojima, Mark Cerny and Jim Ryan.

Whilst it might have been more accessible as a Netflix series, split into twenty-minute episodes for easier digestion by an unfamiliar audience, anyone with even a passing interest in Sony’s creation is bound to find this informative and engaging.

The History of Swear Words (Netflix, 2020, Documentary Series)

What better way is there to show the rumours of your death being exaggerated than by hosting a Netflix series.

Enigmatic leading man, Nicolas Cage, returns (beard accompanying) as host and highlight of this incredible Docuseries from Netflix.

Described as “an education you didn’t realise you needed”, it charts the history and development of several English “cuss words” to quote the man himself.

It’s light, it’s fun and it’s just what you need to let off some steam and start 2021 with a laugh.

Spread across six episodes, each coming in at a perfect 21 minutes, it features discussion and humour from linguistic experts and comedians such as Sarah Silverman and Nick Offerman.

But the highlight here is undoubtedly Cage who apparently filmed all his scenes required for this series in just a single day, thankfully proving he is still ready and willing to make National Treasure 3 when needed.
