Are you looking for a good movie to watch this weekend? Do you have a backlog of movies, streaming services, and cable channels? Now you don’t have to wonder any longer. We at GhostyLab have seen our fair share of entertainment and have some suggestions for what you should see. Each week, you’ll find a new set of recommendations!

Annette (Prime Video)

Leo Carax is a filmmaker who isn’t as well-known as he should be. His new film, a bizarre drama and fantasy starring Adam Driver and Marion Cotillard, was made with a musical partnership with Sparks. It’s a fever dream of a storey that was a smash hit at the Cannes Film Festival and is now available to watch at home. It has been compared to Charlie Kaufman’s work by critics, which is more than enough for me to give it a chance.

The Chair (Netflix)

Fans of Game of Thrones may not be aware that David Benioff and D.B. Weiss are behind this dramatic comedy starring Sandra Oh. The storey of the first female head of the English department at a prestigious university may not seem comparable to a battle between the living dead and a realm of feuding families, but is it really? This could be a fun limited series with a stellar cast that includes Jay Duplass and David Morse.

Cryptozoo (On Demand)

This animated film, which was a hit at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, imagines what it would be like if fantasy monsters were real. This film imagines what their lives would be like, with the help of a zookeeper voiced by Lake Bell, and whether being confined to a zoo is the best life for them. Unusual animation is always a welcome way to tell strange stories, and this one appears to be as bizarre as they come.

Demonic (On Demand)

The first horror film from Neill Blomkamp is a mix of The Matrix, The Exorcist, and The Cell. That may seem like a lot, but given the director’s track record of telling gripping science fiction, it’s worth seeing what he can do with horror. This film, directed by Carly Pope, was shot in Canada during the COVID-19 pandemic. Demonic, a creepy slice of horror from one of today’s coolest voices in film, should be on everyone’s radar this weekend.

Reminiscence (HBO Max)

Lisa Joy’s feature directorial debut features all of the hallmarks of her work on HBO’s Westworld, as well as Hugh Jackman’s star power. This film, a neo-noir set in a post-apocalyptic future, has divided critics as to whether it is a derivative or a compelling mystery. It’s nice that, thanks to HBO Max, we can all make our own decisions. I might just watch it on mute and enjoy the visuals because the movie looks so damn sexy.

Sweet Girl (Netflix)

This year, Jason Momoa is everywhere. Momoa is a total badass in everything he does, from Justice League to Dune to the second season of See. Sweet Girl provides him with the opportunity to play Liam Neeson in a slick action thriller. I had no idea what to expect from this film, but based on the trailer, it appears to be the ideal vehicle for Momoa’s physical presence while also utilising his acting abilities.

Chapelwaite (Epix)

The Walking Dead (AMC)

This weekend marks the premiere of the long-running AMC zombie drama’s massive 24-episode final season. I stopped watching this show a few seasons ago because the quality had deteriorated and I had lost interest. Even if it feels a little late, seeing the storey of these survivors finally get some closure should please die-hard fans. But don’t worry, there will still be plenty of spin-offs!

NYC Epicenters 9/11->2021 1/2 (HBO)

Spike Lee’s multi-part documentary examines the traumatic events that have occurred in the city that represents the United States to the rest of the world over the last two decades. From terrorism to a pandemic, this is a heartbreaking true storey that benefits from Lee’s love for his hometown and his filmmaking skills. This is powerful storytelling that everyone should watch. It is not an easy or feel-good diversion.
