Movies and TV Shows Starring Adria Arjona
Actress Adria Arjona was born in Puerto Rico and grew up in Mexico City. Her father, Guatemalan singer-songwriter Ricardo Arjona, took her on tours and allowed her to experience the world of music and art.
At 18, she moved to New York City and studied acting at Lee Strasberg Theatre & Film Institute. She has since become one of the most promising actresses working in Hollywood.
In the third season of HBO’s True Detective, Mahershala Ali plays Arkansas state cop Wayne Hays as he investigates a child murder case that spans three decades. It’s a nonlinear, tortuous mystery that leaves the audience wondering why Hays keeps revisiting it.
This season is a much better story than its predecessors, but it fails to recapture what made the first season so great. It opted for a more complicated, interweaving plotline that is less interesting than the nonlinear narrative of the first season.
The show also loses its nihilistic tone, a hallmark of the series. It may be a good place to start if you’re new to the genre, but if you’ve seen it before, it’s not worth watching again.
Person of Interest
Person of Interest, a sci-fi crime drama, debuted in 2011 and centred on a reclusive billionaire genius computer programmer named Harold Finch (Lost’s Michael Emerson) who built an artificial intelligence that predicts crimes. Initially, Finch used the Machine to prevent attacks against the U.S. Still, after 9/11, he secretly recruited a burned CIA agent, John Reese (Jim Caviezel), to use the Machine to stop crimes that aren’t considered important by the government.
Eventually, the show started to evolve into an action-thriller with season-long arcs. But it’s also a slow-burn, character-centred series that takes time developing and growing its characters, from the lovable lone wolf outsider Reese to the brilliant but morally bankrupt hacker Root to Carter’s noble idealist detective sister Kara (Taraji P. Henson).
Emerald City is a re-imagining of the Land of Oz in a world where pop culture rules. It’s a world where soldiers and bureaucrats enjoy discos, alcohol, gambling, movies, and posh cars.
In the pilot episode, Dorothy Gale (Adria Arjona) is transported to Oz from Kansas by a tornado. There, she meets witches, an amnesiac soldier, and a sheltered little boy.
The pilot is a bit rough around the edges and doesn’t know what it wants to be, but there are some surprisingly exciting things going on here, especially in the direction and visuals of Tarsem Singh. It’s a world where the Wizard isn’t always a phony, and the characters are more complex than they might first seem.
Star-studded action drama Triple Frontier is about a group of army veterans who hatch a dangerous plan to steal from a drug lord. It’s a thriller about armed robbery and will be available on Netflix this March.
Originally a Paramount project, Triple Frontier went through development hell before several high-profile actors, including Tom Hanks, Johnny Depp, Channing Tatum and Mahershala Ali, were brought in to star.
Despite the star power, Triple Frontier isn’t all that it seems. Director JC Chandor (“A Most Violent Year”) dabbles in moral grey areas, but it’s not enough to keep the movie interesting or engaging.
Adria Arjona is an American actress who has appeared in numerous films and tv shows. Her most notable roles are in the Netflix crime drama Narcos and Person of Interest.
Narcos follows the rise of Mexican drug lord Pablo Escobar. The series premiered in 2015 and was created by Chris Brancato, Carlos Bernard, and Doug Miro.
While the show focused on the Cali cartel during its first two seasons, Season 3 focuses on the 1990s and the globalisation of the drug trade. That means many cast members who debuted in Seasons 1 and 2 are back for more.
Despite having an impressive list of blockbuster hits (Transformers, Bad Boys, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles), Michael Bay is out to shake up the genre with his first Netflix-financed film, 6 Underground. The big-budget action movie stars Ryan Reynolds and is available on the streaming service in December.
The film centres on a tech billionaire who forms an international team of operatives to take down nefarious criminals. However, it needs to be clarified how these operatives, called the Ghost crew, will achieve their mission.
Jared Leto stars as Michael Morbius, a dedicated doctor who develops a cure that turns people into vampires. He teams up with his assistant Martine Bancroft (Adria Arjona – Triple Frontier, 6 Underground) to fight off the primal urges to feed.
Morbius is a bloodsucker-inspired movie, a hybrid of Dracula and Frankenstein that takes its nods from Bram Stoker’s novel and F.W. Murnau’s silent film. Still, it’s a more neo-vampiric creation that recasts Dracula as an interdimensional monster who combines the blood-craving, humanistic desire of Frankenstein with the nefariousness of Dracula. It’s an aptly dark and disturbing story but also frustratingly unsatisfying.
