Beat the boredom during the pandemic by watching some of the best movies and series
Another week, another set of movies and shows that are coming to streaming sights for us to watch, and this week’s entries are something to look forward to. We have The Legend of Korra coming to Netflix and Birds of Prey coming to HBO Max, but that’s just the icing on the cake. Let’s check out the others.
Streaming sites and shows
For Amazon Prime Video, we have John Carpenter’s Escape From New York, the violent and bloody action thriller starring Kurt Russel, in which Russel stars as Snake Plissken who is tasked with rescuing the president.
For Disney+, we have Ant-Man and the Wasp, an entertainer from start to finish with its action scenes, comedy, and of course, making random objects tiny or mega sized.
For Hulu, we have Dora and the Lost City of Gold, based on the popular show that every kid grew up watching in Nick Jr. Isabela Moner stars as the titular character and delivers a good performance, with other cast members Michael Peña, Danny Trejo, Eugenio Derbez, and Eva Longoria. It’s the perfect adventure movie for kids to enjoy.
For Tubi, there is 2016’s box office disaster Concussion starring Will Smith who plays Dr. Bennet Omalu, a real-life forensic pathologist who faced off against the NFL for chronic traumatic encephalopathy, that players suffer from after duking it out on the fields. While the movie didn’t quite reach its mark, the actors did a great job.
And finally, for CBS All Access, we have Star Trek: Lower Decks that is said to be one of the funniest animated shows to air this summer. Created by Mike McMahan, the genius behind Rick and Morty, Lower Decks already shows a lot of promise and is worth watching.
