The best Netflix movies to watch this weekend
The Pope’s Exorcist
Regard! As far as exorcist movies go, this one isn’t that bad. published earlier this year, The Pope’s Exorcist Russell Crowe stars as Father Gabriele Amorth, an exorcist working for the Vatican. While investigating a recent possession, Amorth uncovers an ancient conspiracy the Vatican is trying to hide.
This horror subgenre is saturated with countless low-quality imitations The ExorcistBut The Pope’s Exorcist is one of the better additions of recent years. It also has the rare achievement of teasing 199 possible sequels.
The Eye of the Storm
Skip! The Eye of the Storm is a Taiwanese drama about a deadly disease that spreads rapidly in a hospital, forcing those caught in the crisis to make devastating decisions. Most of us are burned out by stories about disease outbreaks, and this film is a bit too melodramatic for my liking. You can skip this post unless you’re interested in these virus outbreak and lockdown stories.
The Monkey King
Regard! If you are looking for a good family movie to watch this weekend, then the cartoon is for you The Monkey King is a great choice. Animation of the classic Chinese folk tale “Journey to the West” The Monkey King is a rollicking, goofy, action-packed treat that sees the titular monkey (voiced by Jimmy O. Yang) and his magic staff embark on a quest to defeat 100 demons. Along the way, Monkey encounters a dragon king and an even more dangerous enemy: his ego. The voice cast also includes Bowen Yang, Jo Koy, BD Wong, Jolie Haong-Rappaport and Stephanie Hsu.
Countless: Hall of Fame
Skip! This documentary is an excellent follow-up to the Netflix documentary Painkiller while dealing with one of sport’s biggest doping scandals. hall of fame is about Victor Conte and his notorious supplement and nutrition company, BALCO Laboratories. Like most Untold Documents, hall of fame is a good documentary, but it probably won’t grab your attention if you’re not interested in sports.
Regard! Directed by Joel Edgerton, the heartbreaking biographical drama boy deleted was recently added to Netflix and continues to be trending on the streaming site. The film is based on Garrard Conley’s 2016 memoir of the same name.
