There is so much content out there! Any ideas?
I won’t regale you with some of the total misfires I experienced this week when watching new content (though one will get its own review this weekend), but I will give a some suggestions!
The Mitchells vs The Machines
Technology takes over the world and while on a bonding family road trip The Mitchells become unexpected heroes.
The animation is terrific and there are wonderful themes about family, technology, and… MOVIES. 😍 Who doesn’t love a animated tale with equal shares of laugh out loud moments and heart? It may be because I share a real kinship with the lead character, but this was a delightful experience.
You’ll have feels after.
Special shoutouts to all the film references, the Furby throwback, Doug the Pug, Journey album covers and The Shining socks.
Streaming on Netflix
The Handmaid’s Tale Season 4
If you’re a fan and you’ve managed to hang on this long I’m sure I don’t need to tell you, but you should watch the newest! I have had *thoughts* on whether or not we need more of this show, and depending on where this goes, I’ll have more. Until then..
While this is a gloomy viewing experience, there are some emotional reunions that really hit home, and some shifts in environment and direction that provides new life. As always, amazingly acted, beautifully shot.
But prepare your emotions accordingly.
Streaming on Hulu with new episodes every Wednesday.
Bonus: For some strange reason I was late to the game on this one, but I finally watched The Old Guard (on Netflix) and loved it! I would definitely recommend watching Charlize Theron kick ass, any day of the week.
Have you watched these? Let me know your thoughts!
