Netflix offers a wide selection of programming. The streaming service releases a large number of original movies, shows, and documentaries in addition to its library of licensed shows and movies. There will be a substantial amount of Netflix content available in May 2022, which is just around the corner. Netflix's decision to present new Netflix movies or returning fan favorites for viewers seems like a wise move. Among the new additions to Netflix in May 2022 are a Swedish TV series about a notorious criminal, a British war drama movie, the third season of a popular animated anthology series, the fourth season of a sci-fi horror TV series, and many others. Streaming services have not lost any power as film studios continue to release all those movies that were postponed due to the Coronavirus pandemic. In many cases, these platforms are continuing to accommodate movies that haven't become available theatrically but are now available as soon as they are released, allowing audiences to catch up with a movie quickly. Netflix, for example, has a long list of licensed and original content for months to come and continues to add new content from both branches every month.

A Stop-motion animated musical dark fantasy film directed by Mike Johnson and Tim Burton, with a screenplay by John August, Caroline Thompson, and Pamela Pettler based on characters created by Burton and Carlos Grangel. It's a macabre, beautiful tale rich in storytelling that Tim Burton has created with Corpse Bride. There's a good deal of structure, but it's not structurally deep, more the feeling of a short story than that of a feature film. Hence, it's both satisfying and unsatisfying story. The storyforms are explored enough to link the story together, but not enough to weave the lush tapestry that many audience members (particularly adults) enjoy. However, the luxury storytelling of both the design and execution, on first glance, offsets much of this. There may be enough story structure in the film to support repeated viewings.
