The world of things to watch is huge. There is too much to see and so little time. That’s where weekends come in handy: sure, you can still get out and have a good time (it’s summer, for goodness sake!), but what about those times you want to chill and chill in the air conditioning (it’s is summer and It is hot, for heaven’s sake!)? That’s where we come in to help you navigate the weekend. Here is a list of movies and shows you can watch.

Austin Butler gives his “a hunk, a hunk”. elvis, a bombastic biopic about the King of Rock and Roll and his manager Colonel Tom Parker. Directed by Baz Luhrmann, the film has all the beats and language of a Luhrmann flick, which means elvis has loads of flash, a loaded soundtrack (featuring a great Doja Cat lead single) and some neat camera tricks, all culminating in what may or may not be your thing. That’s how Baz works, but a flamboyant Baz movie is better than another boring biopic.

Director Scott Derrickson did the impossible: make me think that for once Ethan Hawke isn’t hot. But to be fair, it’s only because I’m scared to death of whatever Hawke’s character is going on here. A child killer in a creepy mask putting kids in a shockingly soundproof basement is just a “no thanks” from me. However, I’m sure I’ll contradict myself and end up watching this through my fingers, so you win, Derrickson.

When I sat for a screening everything everywhere at once One of the trailers played before was for Marcel the shell — and readers, this trailer has already brought tears to my eyes. This cute little film, directed by Dean Fleischer-Camp, is based on Fleischer-Camp and Jenny Slate’s YouTube shorts about a tender young clam (voiced by Slate). In the feature film, Marcel and his grandmother Connie are discovered by a documentary filmmaker who helps put Marcel’s story online in hopes of locating his lost family. Bring a box of tissues.

Released in its entirety on Hulu, The bear is a fast-paced series about a young gourmet chef (Jeremy Allen White) who, after the death of his brother, inherits his family’s Chicago sandwich shop and struggles with change and responsibility. It’s a comedy, a drama, a dramedy, but most of all it has to be seen. (Or at least try to watch the finale first before deciding.)

The recently released Chronicles of Gordita is an incredibly cute and charming sitcom. Similar to shows like degrees off the boat, The Wonderful Yearsand The GoldbergsThe comedy from creator Claudia Forestieri and showrunner Brigitte Muñoz-Liebowitz follows Cucus’ coming of age – with narration from the character’s older self – as her family relocates from the Dominican Republic to Technicolor ’80s Miami.

How do we feel western world heads? Confused? Yes, that seems about right, but unfortunately we’re in too deep. Why stop now? western world The first season was such an elusive gem of HBO sci-fi prestige (and the second season even had its moments). So if you’ve made it to season three, we might as well see what’s next… even if the show blew its own trappings of being a confusing style-over-substance mystery box. But unfortunately! Season four promises Ariana DeBose and the return of James Marsden in an interesting love triangle with Evan Rachel Wood’s new non-Dolores character, Christina. ohhhh, western world.
