Are you looking for new releases in Film or Television to watch this weekend of May 27th!? 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.
Although I am going to be camping for most of this Memorial Weekend, I have to squeeze in time to go see The Bob’s Burgers Movie. This is one of my favorite cartoons on television. So, seeing the Belchers up on the big screen is a must!
I will hit the ground running on the new and final season of Stranger Things on Netflix. I will also be going to see the new Top Gun: Maverick film. The original is one of my favorites and I can’t wait to see what they do with this one.
I have a hot date with Formula 1’s Monaco Grand Prix on Sunday. As well as more Brickleberry which is streaming on Tubi.
In between Live Streams, I’m diving into Obi-Wan Kenobi on Disney+. Then, I’ll be watching Young Justice on HBOMax, as well as playing catch up on Dr. Who Flux, and Sonic 2 which is streaming on Paramount+.
KENOOOOOOOOOBI!!!!! Is there really any other choice?

NEW ON PRIME VIDEO MAY 27TH!
Kunle (Donald Elise Watkins) and his best friend, Sean (RJ Cyler), are both seniors in college about to embark on an epic night of Spring Break parties. Sean has the whole night planned out, including every party they will hit on their “legendary tour.” Kunle is down, yet mostly concerned with finishing up his mold experiment in his lab, as his acceptance to Princeton is hinging on the results.
They return to their apartment to pre-game, yet find that their roommate, Carlos (Sebastian Chacon), left the door open. As they enter with trepidation, Sean and Kunle discover a drunk, semi-conscious White female they don’t know on the floor, and an oblivious Carlos, who didn’t hear her come in over the videogame blaring in his ears. Kunle wants to call the cops but Sean vehemently opposes the idea concerned about how it will look when the cops show up (two Black men, one Latino man, and a passed out White woman).
Together, Carlos, Sean, and Kunle load the girl – who they nickname Goldilocks, but whose real name is Emma (Maddie Nichols) – into Sean’s van, with the intention of taking her somewhere safe rather than calling the police. Meanwhile, Emma’s sister, Maddy (Sabrina Carpenter), has realized that Emma left the party they were at, and begins to search for her in a drunk panic using Emma’s phone’s location. What ensues is a chaotic, hilarious, and tension-filled chase all over town as our trio grapples with their differences while attempting to bring Emma to safety.
