Are you looking for something to see this weekend? Are you inundated with streaming services, cable channels and a movie lag? Well, no more wondering. We here at JoBlo.com see our fair share of entertainment and have some recommendations for what you should check out. Come back every week for a new selection of recommendations!
Aquaman: King of Atlantis (HBO Max)
The latest animated offering from DC on HBO Max is this fun recording Aquaman. A three-part series from producer James Wan, this series mixes the visual style with cartoons like SpongeBob, Steven Universe, and Hun-Ra series. It’s clearly not something similar to the Jason Momoa series, but like the latest Harley Quinn show, this is a lighter bid for the superhero genre that should offer an alternative to the same old formula.
Guilty party (Paramount +)
Originally set to star Isla Fisher, this streaming series starring Kate Beckinsale makes the actor go against the type as a journalist with a bad reputation investigating a murder. Dark cartoon with a pitch black tone, this series can be a fun change for Beckinsale who does not tend to need comedy as much as she should. Beckinsale’s recent projects have been hit or run, so I hope this lives up to its potential.
What happened, Brittany Murphy? (HBO Max)
Genuine crime documentaries are always a solid feed for streaming services. Documentaries about famous people also work. Combine them and you will be watching television. This new investigation into the untimely and mysterious death of actress Brittany Murphy seems to be treading the same path as previous documentaries, but HBO’s reputation means that this should have some twists that are worth checking out.
Day of the Dead (SYFY)
This new series is inspired by the George A. Romero movie of the same name and aims at the satirical elements of the classic zombie movies, but was updated with a feel in 2021. Strange humor mixed with solid make-up can not save this series that sending post-millennials and Trump supporters on an equal footing. But it’s Halloween, and zombies are still entertaining, so if you fancy some buckets of blood, this might be the show for you.
Halloween Kills (Paramount +)
A new Michael Myers movie is always a reason to celebrate, and this year you can watch it from home. This central chapter in David Gordon Green and Danny McBride’s sequel trilogy to John Carpenter’s classic is also available on the big screen, taking us back to Michael’s first murder. Jamie Lee Curtis is joined by both familiar and new faces as she goes toe to toe with The Shape for the second to final time.
Home Sweet Home (NBC)
Ava DuVernay has made a career out of challenging topics. From big screen to small, her projects look at the importance of race in our society. By having families swap homes, this reality series seems to literally put people in the lives of those who are physically unequal to them. This can easily be exploitative, but I bet it actually ends up being an exciting social experiment.
I know what you did last summer (Prime Video)
This new take on Lois Duncan’s classic young adult novel is no closer to the source material, as the 1990s slasher starring Jennifer Love Hewitt. By moving the story to Hawaii, this new drama has some plot holes and weak dialogue in some places, but makes up for it with solid twists you don’t expect. Violent and sexy, this is definitely not for kids, but should keep mysterious lovers entertained for the next few weeks.
Needle in a Timestack (as needed)
12 years a slave author and Oscar winner John Ridley directed this science fiction story about memories and time travel that are truly a romance at heart. Leslie Odom Jr. plays opposite Orlando Bloom, Frieda Pinto and Cynthia Erivo in an exciting character drama. Movies like this do not always become big hits, but it seems to be able to become a sleeping favorite.
This serial killer thriller about a sociopath who falls in love may be reminiscent of Dexter, but the Netflix hit has built a solid fan base over the first two seasons. The third season debuts today and comes with the announcement that the series is returning to a fourth batch of episodes. For now, you can follow Joe Goldberg’s relationship with Love Quinn as their secrets come to the surface and create all sorts of tensions.
Slumber Party Massacre (SYFY)
This remake of the cult 80s movie turns the formula around in a very inventive way. I do not want to dive into the twists and turns this new film offers, but it keeps bloodshed to the maximum and keeps the humor fluid as well. There are some interesting killings here as well as a tone that should keep you more entertained than scared. Definitely get into this with an open mind and be prepared to laugh.
The city’s equivalent to Yellowstone, successionthird season is the best record in the series yet. When we return to the Civil War brewing in the Roy family, this new season draws the battle boundaries between Kendall and his father Logan. The following is a brutal series of insults filled with the best swear words on TV. With guest stars including Alexander Skarsgard and Adrien Brody, this season will make fans very happy.
