Forget what you think you know about Pamela Anderson.
In an intimate, revealing new Netflix documentary, "Pamela, A Love Story" (streaming as of Jan 31st), the blonde bombshell who dominated headlines and Playboy covers for much of the 90s and 00's, finally gets to share her version of her life in the spotlight.
It's an empowering and tender portrait of a girl from humble beginnings, looking back at her tremendous journey into womanhood and then motherhood, through successes, failures and controversies, as she - now in her mid-50s - attempts to reclaim the narrative of her own life.
In "You People," a new R-rated comedy hitting theaters and Netflix simultaneously, a white man, Ezra (Jonah Hill) and a black woman, Amira (Lauren London), fall in love. All is good, until they are introduced to each of their families.
Here are some of the new films opening this weekend that were reviewed!

Review Round-up: 'A Man Called Otto,' 'The Old Way,' 'The Pale Blue Eye' and 'EO'
Here's a "round-up" of some recent movies I've seen, including a repeat review of "The Pale Blue Eye," which is now available to stream on Netflix.
I missed seeing the #2 movie in the country this past week, the surprise hit, "M3GAN," (which just brought in over 30 million on its opening weekend). Of course, the #1 film in the world is still "Avatar: The Way of Water" (click for my full review) of that film).
But these other movies are now in release as well:
