Weekend #21 of 53 – 5/21 – 5/25/2020
Every week on Thursdays movies and/or TV shows at various streaming channels (these will change periodically) will be selected to watch/rewatch. The goal is to highlight some noteworthy movie and/or TV shows to check out for the coming weekend.
Movie theater new releases are covered already under the opening week posts that we do on Wednesdays (as soon as theaters reopen, these posts will resume), this new pics feature is strictly for streaming releases.
Some of these streaming services you may subscribe to, some you might want to check out a free trial and check out.
NOTE: If you’re coming to these posts weeks or months later, some and/or all of the picks listed below may no longer be on the streaming services indicated. Anything marked as “Original” typically doesn’t expire on the streaming service.
*Title with asterisk – newly released
Title is linked and has star rating – already watched, rated and reviewed
Title bolded – on our schedule to watch/rewatch, rate and review (or in progress)
