It’s time to look at what to watch this weekend on the best streaming services – Netflix, Disney+, Amazon Prime Video, Hulu etc. Let’s dive into the rundown of what to watch right now.
- Genre: Romance
- Where to Watch: Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, iTunes Store, Vudu, YouTube
A Nicholas Sparks movie always wins when it comes to romance. Dear John, starring Mamma Mia! superstar Amanda Seyfried and Magic Mike heartthrob Channing Tatum, tells the tale of US Army Special Operations veteran John Tyree (Tatum), who falls in love with college student Savannah Curtis (Seyfried) while on summer leave. Even though John’s subsequent deployment puts their quicksand relationship to the test, they manage to maintain the flame through passionate and private letters. Will it be sufficient to withstand the storm though? Perhaps it was the right person at the wrong time. Dear John is the epitome of a gripping, endearing movie, with just the proper amount of sappiness and a variety of emotions that call for a box of Kleenex.
- Genre: Drama
- Where to Watch: Hulu, FX
Our next pick for the what to watch this weekend rundown is The Bear. Within the first few seconds, The Bear roars to life, setting up a dream scene in which Carmy (Jeremy Allen White) battles the show’s title character. If you find that stressful, hold on for the crazy journey that is the brand-new FX comedy, which centres on a chef who is hired to run his brother’s Chicago restaurant after the latter’s untimely passing. With rising debt, a recalcitrant staff, and a deep cultural divide, the changeover is anything but smooth. It’s incisive, sinister, and delectable, creating for the ideal buzzy summertime show.
Sonic The Hedgehog
- Genre: Children’s/Family
- Where to Watch: Amazon Prime Video, iTunes Store, Vudu, Epix, Paramount+
Who would have imagined that the SEGA video game adaption with a swift blue creature collecting rings would be so fantastic? Nobody, specifically, given that the history of video games to movies is plagued with some of the worst films ever made. That pattern is broken by Sonic The Hedgehog, who creates a family film that isn’t just excellent for a video game adaptation, but exceptional all around. In the film, Sonic, who is voiced by Ben Schwartz, is abandoned on Earth and in need of a buddy. Here comes James Marsden’s disinterested police chief, who joins him on a road trip to locate the rings necessary for Sonic to flee the villainous Dr. Robotnik (Jim Carrey).

Crooklyn, a tribute to suburban life in New York, is partially based on Spike Lee’s own upbringing in Brooklyn. The summer of 1973 is the setting for the movie, which centres on a black family residing in Brooklyn’s Bedford-Stuyvesant area at the time. Because it is episodic in nature, the plot can occasionally be choppy, but the people are what really make this movie stand out. Although each character is unique and fantastic on their own, they really stand out when they interact with one another. The characters in this movie, from the oddball neighbourhood kids to Woody (Delroy Lindo) and Carolyn (Alfe Woodard), have all been meticulously created by Lee to elicit a strong emotional response from the audience. This title is what to watch right now on Amazon Prime Viedo.
- Genre: Sci-Fi/Fantasy
- Where to Watch: Amazon Prime Video, iTunes Store, Vudu, YouTube, Tubi
Why am I recommending that you watch Alcatraz, a 2012 short-lived police procedural with a mind-bending sci-fi twist, as someone who makes their living by watching new television? Because it features Sam Neill and because there are far less Sam Neill appearances in The Triangle, a mind-bending miniseries with a sci-fi twist from 2005. Additionally, Alcatraz enjoys the luxury of a very bizarre phenomenon: convicts and guards who vanished from the island in 1963 are now reappearing 50 years later with unfinished business. Sam is in charge of a secret government organisation entrusted with monitoring those returnees, and it is not an easy job. This pick is what to watch this weekend streaming.
