Are you looking for new releases in Film or Television to watch this weekend of March 4!? Well, THS has you covered in our weekly series! So, make sure to come back each week as we compile all of our recommendations for you to check out on your days off.
However, I wanted to break down this list and make it a little more personal. Kind of like when you walk into a book store and see the wall of employee recommendations. So, I’ll be breaking down this list as to what we at THS are watching, not necessarily every single thing releasing.
What’s Sarah watching?
I have a pretty big TV watching weekend ahead of me. I’m diving into a fun murder mystery, The Weekend Away on Netflix. The movie stars Leighton Meester (Gossip Girl – Single Parents) and I will support anything she works on. I’m also incredibly excited for the second season of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe.
On Hulu, everyone’s favorite Winter Soldier, Sebastian Stan is in a new movie, FRESH. And of course I’m headed to the theater to watch Rob Patinson in The Batman!
What’s Travis watching?
I’m similar to probably most everyone, my weekend is definitely going to include checking out The Batman. I’m anxious to see if it will live up to all the hype that’s been building up. Not to mention it’ll be the first Batman movie to skip the Thomas and Martha scene. I also have the latest episode of Resident Alien I’ll be catching up on. If you haven’t checked out that gem of a series yet, do yourself a favor and give it a watch. You can find it on SyFy, as well as streaming on Peacock. It’s Alan Tudyk at his finest.
What’s Kat watching?
More The Proud Family: Louder and Prouder for me! I’m also loving the new/old Law and Order on Peacock. I’m also recently obsessed with Brain Games on the Road on Hulu!
What’s Benji watching?
I’m still trucking my way through The Owl House to prepare for the upcoming season 3!
What’s Jess watching?
*Sandra Oh screaming at the Golden Globes voice* KILLING EVE!! I mean, technically I’m re-watching the next episode since I got to screen the first three, but this is a show that must be enjoyed (read: screamed about) with other fans. Also, I’m streaming the OG Lynda Carter’s Wonder Woman series on HBO Max. Truly, I can’t get the theme song out of my head.

In case you missed them in theaters, there are a couple of Oscar Nominated films you can stream this weekend.
West Side Story

Drive My Car
Two years after his wife’s unexpected death, Yusuke Kafuku (Hidetoshi Nishijima), a renowned stage actor and director, receives an offer to direct a production of Uncle Vanya at a theater festival in Hiroshima. There, he meets Misaki Watari (Toko Miura), a taciturn young woman assigned by the festival to chauffeur him in his beloved red Saab 900.
As the production’s premiere approaches, tensions mount amongst the cast and crew, not least between Yusuke and Koji Takatsuki, a handsome TV star who shares an unwelcome connection to Yusuke’s late wife. Forced to confront painful truths raised from his past, Yusuke begins – with the help of his driver – to face the haunting mysteries his wife left behind. Adapted from Haruki Murakami’s short story, Ryusuke Hamaguchi’s Drive My Car is a haunting road movie traveling a path of love, loss, acceptance, and peace. Winner of three prizes at the 2021 Cannes Film Festival, including Best Screenplay.
