What’s trending on streaming now: “Weird” everything and more

Several times a week, our TV and movie experts will list the top ten streaming picks for you to get into your queues. We don’t operate strictly on reviews or streaming clicks accrued (although yes, we’ve scoured the streaming page charts), but rather on the choices that are truly worth noting amidst the surging sea of ​​content. After all, there is a lot out there and your time is valuable.

TIE: 10. Enola Holmes 2 (Netflix Movie)

Henry Cavill could be anywhere right now (and wants to go The Witcher build soon), but for now you can enjoy him in this charming follow-up to Millie Bobby Brown’s introduction as Sherlock Holmes’ mature little sister. She has her own detective shingle now, and she digs into a case that strongly resembles the infamous match factory incidents. The subject matter is serious, but the mood remains relatively light-hearted nonetheless. Get ready for more crazy hijinks.

TIE: 10. Guillermo del Toro’s curiosities (Netflix series)

October may be over, but the ghosts continue with this anthology series full of spooky happenings and helmed by a series of passionate directors including The Babadook Helms Jennifer Kent and OG Dusk directed by Catherine Hardwicke. Who says the witching season has to be limited to just one month of the year? Especially as Daylight Savings Time ends, get into the literal darkness by enjoying episodes starring Ben Barnes, Andrew Lincoln, Rupert Grint and more.

9. Completely quiet on the west front (Netflix Movie)

There’s a glut of World War II movies, and a lot of them lately, but this one happens to be the best of the recent bunch. No gimmicks here, just pure war drama. It’s visually stunning and viscerally exhausting, and thankfully, Daniel Brühl (Unhappy bastards) appears because it is practically mandatory at this point.

8. Don’t worry dear (New Line/WB Movie on HBO Max)

Finally, the high price of PVOD has given way to HBO Max streaming, so you can see what all the fuss is about after Harry Styles didn’t spit on Chris Pine after all. That was just the beginning because Olivia Wilde drummed up enthusiasm about the sex scenes and didn’t seem to understand why people were excited about them. Still, the film itself failed to sparkle as much as one might expect. Still, it’s not a bad way to spend 2 hours and 3 minutes, give or take.

7. From scratch (Netflix series)

Are you in the mood to cry? Well, you’re in luck and you wouldn’t be alone. This series (starring Zoe Saldana) adapts From Scratch: A Memoir of Love, Sicily, and Finding Home memoir by Tembi Locke, and tells the story of loss and love that reaches beyond the grave. Saldana’s Amy falls in love with an aspiring chef in Italy, and the story moves to Los Angeles, where everything is supposed to be perfect, but then tragedy strikes. Yes, it sounds like a Nicholas Sparks novel for good reason, but it’s great counter-programming to all the superhero and dark fantasy shows that have recently ruled streaming.

6. The white lotus (The HBO series is streamed on HBO Max)

Second season debut episode dissed Ted Lasso; for better or for worse, and this season is already hitting satirical beats with Aubrey Plaza and Theo James’ uncomfortable exchange. Everyone wants to know who the floating body belongs to, and I’m secretly hoping it’s the latter, or maybe Murray Bartlett’s Armond made it all the way to Sicily after his demise? Don’t put it past this franchise to go there, but the best thing about this season is that Jennifer Coolidge returns for one hell of an embarrassing sex scene. There hasn’t been a poop in a suitcase yet, but this season is young, so we’ll see what happens.

5. Dahmer – Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story (Netflix series) and Conversations with a Killer: The Jeffrey Dahmer Tapes (Netflix docu-series)

This late serial killer won’t stop dominating the Netflix charts, first with Ryan Murphy’s dramatized limited series (starring Evan Peters) and then with Joe Berlinger’s docu-series that takes a more hard-hitting approach to a serial killer who flourished until “that smell” brought him down. Yes, this is difficult subject matter to look at, but that hasn’t stopped the masses from continuing to drown out this content.

4. The Watcher (Netflix series)

More Ryan Murphy. You can’t escape him, and given his twin fall 2022 successes virtually guarantee that his Netflix contract will be renewed indefinitely. In this limited series inspired by real life, Naomi Watts and Bobby Cannivale portray the heads of a terrorized family who receive threatening letters after moving into what they thought would be their dream home. Soon enough, they’re questioning everything, and everyone is really a suspect. The series has fun with every conceivable possibility, while remaining relatively innocent when it comes to triggering any old memories you may have. The story may not be prestige TV, but the cast (including Margo Martindale, Mia Farrow and Jennifer Coolidge) qualifies it just as much.

3. Weird: The Al Yankovic Story (Roku movie)

Daniel Radcliffe continues to care and prove that there really is a creative life after starring in a franchise for over a decade. He’s obviously “Weird” Al Yankovic, the king of musical parody, in this accordion-swinging, semi-fictional biopic starring Evan Rachel Wood as Madonna. Man, this will bring back memories of watching “Like A Virgin” themed floats while your grandma mutters about the disgrace before her. The 1980s ruled.

2. Manifesto (NBC-turned-Netflix series)

Showrunner Jeff Rake got a second chance (after an NBC cancellation while this show sat atop the Netflix charts), and he’s trying to bring this turbulent ride in for a semi-crash landing. This show still doesn’t make sense, and Flight 828 passengers are just as clueless as the general public when it comes to why they disappeared for five years from the regular human timeline. Cal is suddenly a teenager and I’m waiting for an Olive-only spinoff announcement. Justice for Olive, and down with Angelina. Manifesto superfan Stephen King must have some theories for this batch of episodes, and hopefully we’ll hear about them soon.

1. Interview with the vampire (AMC series streams on AMC+)

If you haven’t tuned into this reboot yet, you’re really missing out. Lestat and Louis have revealed their relationship, and Lestat throws the biggest tantrum over Claudia beating him in a game of chess. But seriously, not only is this show better than the 1990s movie starring Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt, but the show has also been renewed for a second season. It won’t love and leave you, in other words, and Jacob Anderson has moved far beyond his stoicism Game of Thrones role with Sam Reid who gives Lestat some irresistible swagger for the times. This is about to be wound up for the year, so get started.
