WHAT TO WATCH THIS WEEKEND #32 of 2020 Movie and TV Streaming Picks – Netflix, CBS All Access, HBO Max, Amazon Prime Video, DC Universe, Hulu, Peacock

Weekend #32 of 53 (8/7 – 8/9/2020) for 2020 Picks By Streaming Service

This week I’m most looking forward movie-wise to watching An American Pickle (FIRST LOOK) starring Seth Rogen on HBO Max. It is available for streaming on August 6, 2020.

For TV, I’m looking most forward to the new adult animated series: Star Trek: Lower Decks (FIRST LOOK) on CBS All Access. To get into that Star Trek mode, I’ve been watching The Orville on Hulu, which has a very Next Generation feel. Lower Decks is also available for streaming on August 6, 2020.

Weekend #31 of 53 (7/31 – 8/2/2020) for 2020 Picks By Streaming Service

The first of the month is huge for the various streaming services, as this is when a bunch of movie licenses move around.

It’s not uncommon to see dozens of movies added and removed from the leading services each month on this day. For movie lovers like us, this is like Christmas Day every month. Included in this week’s streaming picks are lists of movies cycled in on the first of the month by service.

There are plenty of sources out there covering every single movie title.

WHAT TO WATCH THIS WEEKEND #30 of 2020 Movie and TV Streaming Picks – Netflix, HBO Max, Amazon Prime Video, DC Universe

Sequel premieres on Netflix

Weekend #30 of 53 (7/24 – 7/26/2020) for 2020 Picks By Streaming Service

If you plowed through everything Peacock had to offer last week (Lost Speedways was very good for those who like racing, BTW, I recommend that series), then several movies await this weekend across the streaming services.

I haven’t seen the first movie The Kissing Booth, but the sequel is coming straight to Netflix this weekend and the main lead stars are returning. I’m looking more forward to seeing Radioactive and Spotlight. The animated films: Animated Crackers and Dragons: Rescue Riders: Secrets of the Songwing might be worth a look, too.

Weekend #29 of 53 (7/17 – 7/19/2020) for 2020 Picks By Streaming Service

Movie-wise, this is a pretty quiet weekend for new releases, unless we’re talking about Peacock, which has opened up a library of movies — some certified classics (like Psycho) — to the world at large.

Peacock is what I’m going to be spending at least some time watching several of their Peacock Originals. Have already watched a couple of the originals. Leading my interest as of this writing is Dale Earnhardt Jr. visiting a bunch of old racetracks (Lost Speedways). I’m always fascinated with how nature grows up through man-made structures. Even 10 years without upkeep can make something look ancient.

Weekend #27 of 53 (7/3 – 7/5/2020) for 2020 Picks By Streaming Service

Normally post this on Thursdays, but my work week has been crazy busy, so I’m behind here. Absolutely not complaining because a lot of people are unemployed and extremely grateful that my work, labeled as essential, has been busier than normal this time of year. At the same time it leaves my “free” time somewhat wrecked.

Ah, but I have the next two days off, so in between the fireworks and festivities, will definitely ramp up my movie and TV show watching.

One of the movies I’ve been most looking forward to seeing in the music bio genre is *Street Survivors: The True Story of Lynyrd Skynyrd [FIRST LOOK] that went straight to VOD (Video On Demand) and is available on Vudu (and probably all other competing VOD providers) at least to own or rent. I love it when they give us these options and when the price isn’t that different, I’m probably going to just buy ($7.99) instead of rent ($3.99).

Have written before that it makes most sense to offer a lower own it price like this with movies that aren’t big budget. They will get people to just pay the extra $4 so if the movie is really good, they can rewatch it multiple times. In the case of a movie about a rock band I like, I’m thinking the sound track has to be worth the eight bones as it is. Will find out soon.

I’m not seeing a lot of brand new movie releases on the streaming services this weekend. They probably are holding back a bit since they rotate in a bunch of new titles on the first of each month, after sending some titles away. License roulette in full swing. I probably should be reporting what all those are in a post or at least linking to the multiple other sites already doing that.

I believe Reelgood and/or JustWatch have services where you can track movies you want to watch and be notified when and where they appear. If I’m wrong (feel free to correct me in the comments if you know otherwise), then they should have that type of service to make their site even more useful.

I’m sort of getting used to using my phone as a remote, but after a couple weeks of Chromecast (see: Tired of Waiting For Roku, 7+ Year Customer Buys Chromecast Ultra to Stream HBO Max to TV) it’s just not as user-friendly to me as having a UI (User Interface) on the TV like Roku offers. I don’t like the small screen and the fact that it sometimes loses the sync to my phone so I have to go back in and recast to watch what’s next. It’s just not an amazing user experience like Roku. HBO Max really needs to get it together with Roku because they are the primary reason I’m using Chromecast.

Alright, let’s see what’s new out there. I may continue to update this post now that I’m finally winding down for my days off and have more time to research new movies and TV shows coming to streaming services. Seems like I might be missing some good stuff. I looked at Amazon, for example, and didn’t see much new happening there. That can’t be right, can it?

WHAT TO WATCH THIS WEEKEND #23 of 2020 Movie and TV Streaming Picks – Netflix, Amazon, YouTube, Shudder, HBO Max, DC Universe

Weekend #23 of 53 – 6/5-6/7/2020 for 2020 Picks By Streaming Service

The first of the month is here and talk about overload — in a good way — of new movies hitting all the services.

I’ve picked out a few from several different services, but there are a bunch of good to great to amazing movies available to watch, not to mention a weekend of new movies and TV shows hitting.

It’s pretty much impossible for any one person who doesn’t make this their job (we both have full time jobs that have nothing to do with this) to stay on top of what’s new on all the streaming services, so I’m thinking the current strategy is to just try and be aware of what’s out there by hitting the top 10 lists and seeing what the buzz is from social media, movie and TV bloggers and the news, plus of course word of mouth from others you know.

If there is something great you want to mention that is available this weekend, please use the comments below to talk about it. We need to help each other sift through the massive amount of content changing, rotating and coming out new.

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.

    Animated

Watched Love Life starring Anna Kendrick the first three episodes last week and it covers her adventures trying to find and secure love. It’s an awkward and unusually paced TV show.

Not sure how much or even if I like it or not yet, but it manged to keep my interest through the first three episodes (it’s just comes off as an unusual way of watching someone trying to fall in love). The next three episodes (4-6) are dropping to check out, so will see how that goes.
