Weekend #22 of 53 – 5/29 – 5/31/2020
Every week on Thursdays movies and/or TV shows — mainly new, but also some older titles — 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)
ALL Week #22 of 53 for 2020 Picks By Streaming Service
With this week’s launch of HBO Max (see: HBO Max Launches – Here’s What Everything Looks Like Inside #HBOmax), Netflix continuing to crank out new original programming and YouTube’s We Are One Film Festival (see: YouTube Hosting We Are One FREE Digital Film Festival with 20 Partners May 29 – June 7, 2020) this weekend leaves plenty of viewing options.
A number of movies that have come out in the last year are available streaming through HBO Max (Ready or Not, The Art of Racing In The Rain), Netflix (Uncut Gems) and Amazon Prime Video (Rocketman, The Goldfinch).

Binge watched both seasons of Selling Sunset over the last week. A reality TV series featuring the high priced world of real estate in California that has been greenlit for a third season later in 2020. High commissions and drama inside a real estate office that deals primarily in selling homes worth millions. I thought at first this would be a really shallow show that wouldn’t maintain my interest, but somehow it did.

Just a few of many films at the co-curated virtual festival that caught my eye. Similar to how SXSW was handled here (see: Afterthoughts on SXSW 2020, er, Going To The Dogs), the plan is to watch, rate and review several of the films being presented during the festival and share back the experience. Hope others reading will join in and share back as well.
