Jan. 8: What to Watch This Weekend

Jan 8 What Watch Weekend
Universal Pictures

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.



Christopher Nolan’s latest film Tenet is an action-packed mind-bending thriller starring Robert Pattison and John David Washington.


LA’s Finest (Season 1)

This is a brand new series from Netflix starring Jessica Alba and Gabrielle Union. It is a Bad Boys film franchise spinoff where “two police detectives team up while trying to keep their stormy pasts — and differences — from interfering.”

Pieces of a Woman

Vanessa Kirby stars as Martha, in this deeply moving story of a woman trying to learn from her loss. Kirby gives one of the best performances of the year. Check out my review here.


Shadow in the Cloud

IMDB describes the action film as: “A female WWII pilot traveling with top-secret documents on a B-17 Flying Fortress encounters an evil presence on board the flight.”


After a one-night stand, Derrick (Michael Ealy) finds himself in a psychological battle with the woman he had an affair with.


Gretel & Hansel

Sophia Lillis stars as Gretel in this haunting mystery as she travels across dark woods to save herself and her little brother.


The King of Staten Island

If you haven’t seen The King of Staten Island yet, you’re already behind. There’s a reason a lot of our staff are calling this movie their favorite of the year. In this Judd Apatow directed film, Scott has really struggled with all aspects of his life since his firefighter father died. Although there’s a beautifully serious storyline, the movie will make you feel good and laugh (a lot).
