Weekend #38 of 53 (9/18 – 9/20/2020) for 2020 Picks By Streaming Service
Once again this week, Netflix with their massive back stock of movies and TV shows already produced pre-pandemic is the focal point of what’s new on streaming.
Starting to make us wonder when they’re going to run out (we hope they don’t!), but it seems no other streaming channel has the ramp up and head start with originally produced content that Netflix has. Maybe in 2021 and beyond there will be more and better competition, but Netflix is at the top of the heap, somewhat easily, we are reminded week in and week out.
This week a featured movie starring Tom Holland and Robert Pattinson in The Devil All The Time and the TV series Jurassic World: Camp Crustaceous. Shudder also has an original, Spiral, that looks worth checking out.
As far as other TV, Netflix is also premiering Ratched, a series based on the popular nurse character from Ken Kesey’s One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest. HBO continues their weekly new movie on their platform with a good one, The Invisible Man (2020) from Blumhouse earlier this year. Although there hasn’t been a lot of competition that is currently our #1 favorite film watched in theaters in 2020.
