Movies Now Showing Television

Movies & TV Shows to Watch this Weekend

The new season of True Detective comes out on Monday starring Jodie Foster. I’m looking forward to it because haven’t really been watching much lately.

I’ve started The Expanse all over again, I think the first time I watched it I stopped at season 3, and then completely forgot the storyline and characters so now restarting and going to watch it all the way through.

Just want to thank you for giving the heads-up on “Slow Horses” a couple of weeks ago. I would never have watched it without a recommendation and it is a great series.

When I was in US a couple of weeks ago I binge watched the first season of “Night Agent” – a great watch also.

Thank you

I’m excited about True Detective and Monsieur Spade.

Movie recommendation:
– Justice League: Crisis on Infinite Earths, Part One (2024)

TV recommendation:
– Echo (2024) nice action sequences

I saw Weird: The Al Yankovic Story, and it wasn’t as fun or funny as I’d hoped.

I also managed to watch an Agatha Christie boxset:

Murder on the Orient Express (1974) (Extremely boring, and the stacked cast barely made an impression on me. Albert Finney was a terrible Poirot. The 2017 version was somehow better than this)

Death on the Nile (1978) (Better than the 2022 version, and Peter Ustinov is the best Poirot)

The Mirror Crack’d (Miss Marple’s nephew does most of the investigating while she comes up with the conclusion at the end, which was interesting, but the journey was dull)

Evil Under the Sun (Nice seeing Ustinov as Poirot again, but similarly to Mirror Crack’d, the conclusion was better than most of the movie)

Then I rewatched Sinbad: Legend of the Seven Seas, but it’s been so long since I last saw it, that it felt like watching it for the first time. Very fun action/adventure movie, and a shame that it didn’t spawn a franchise.
