    April 23: What to Watch This Weekend

    Between movie theaters, VOD, Redbox, Netflix and the rest of the streaming platforms, a lot of content dropped this week. I went through and found some of the best options you can watch this weekend.

    The Belcourt

    Street Gang: How We Got to Sesame Street 

    As of April 23, The Belcourt is now open and this is one of their weekend showings! Street Gang: How We Got to Sesame Street is a charming look at how Sesame Street became a beloved children’s television show. You’ll laugh, cry and bask in the creation of one of the most incredible television shows ever made. You can read my full review here.

    In Theaters

    Mortal Kombat

    One of the most popular video games of all time is hitting the big screen for the third time. The film is going back to its roots and rebooting it based on the original story. It’s dropping in theaters and on HBO Max the same day.



    Blackmail is the name of the game as Victoria (Ruby Rose) is struggling to provide for her daughter. Her friend Damon (Morgan Freeman) decides he wants to help her but the help comes at a price. Ruby Rose stars in this action-filled drama that showcases just how much of a badass she really is.



    IMDB: “A stowaway on a mission to Mars sets off a series of unintended consequences.”
