Movies & TV Shows to Watch this Weekend

I started watching Franklin this week, but couldn’t make it through the first episode. I did start watching X-Men ’97 and am loving it, for one it reminded me of Saturday mornings back when I lived in Canada, but also the plot is pretty good so I’m really enjoying it.

I watched the movie The Holdovers, it was good, don’t think I’d recommend it but it was fine. I’m a fan of Paul Giamatti but I remember I also found his movie Sideways by the same director also just fine even though it had gotten rave reviews back then.

Other than that I’m still watching Mr. & Mrs. Smith and just finished The Brothers Sun. Now deciding if I should start watching Obliterated or Baby Reindeer.

Let us know in the comments what you’ve been watching or planning to watch this weekend.

Watched City Hunter on Netflix and enjoyed it.

Started watching Extremely Inappropriate – 1 episode through and it seems fun.

Murphy Brown?! That’s a blast from the past! What else are you planning on watching? Soap or Empty Nest! Both are great shows too! I honestly think yesteryear comedies are much better than today’s comedies.

I am majorly addicted to X-Men 97. I mentioned it a couple of times on here. I think it’s the best onscreen adaptation of the X-Men comic books by far. It’s way better than the original 90s cartoon and I was addicted to that as a kid.

Baby Reindeer is a tough watch, esp from ep4 onwards; this is not something like Netflix’s other series, “You”.

Other recently watched,

Blame It on Rio (a very bizarre movie that feels like The Graduate, but for creepy men)

Aquaman: King of Atlantis (worst animated DC project since “Teen Titans Go!” The character designs are just horrendous)

Justice League: Gods and Monsters Chronicles Season 1 (This is available to watch for free on Youtube, it’s only 3 six-minute eps, and the first 2 are really good. This series serves as a companion/prequel to the animated movie, Justice League: Gods & Monsters, which came out back in 2015 (also worth a watch)).

Also, Young Justice came back to Netflix in this region, now with S3! I highly recommend this show if you like X-Men: The Animated Series.

Psych is also now available on Netflix in this region (all 8 seasons), and I only saw S1 when the series was on Prime, and I recommend it if you like detective shows with a comedic twist.

Baby Reindeer is some seriously twisted stuff, it quite reminds me of fargo which is one of my all time favourite shows, the fact that it is based off a true story is unfathomable. Not for sensitive minds at all! good watch..

Only 4 ep in Baby Reindeer and I feel I need a break. It’s a good show but wow disturbing .

Lapatta Ladies (subtitled in English) is Kiran Rao’s labour of love and is rather a steal. I’d be prepared to wager it will be India’s selection at Cannes this year and is a probable contender for the Oscars’ Foreign language best feature presentation…..of course, depends on what the rest of the competition looks like. Even so, it is India’s best shot yet at the Oscars in a really long time. Do watch.

Introducing my son to Roger Rabbit this weekend at the theater! So fun to see movies from my teen-hood on the big screen again!
