Are you looking for new releases in Film or Television to watch this weekend of September 16th!? 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.
After an extended time of very little being released in theaters, we are getting a barrage of new releases… which means a little something for everyone. Out of everything coming out this weekend, “See How They Run” and “The Woman King” are at the top of my list. And I would definitely recommend “Do Revenge” on Netflix if you’re looking for a fun and breezy guilty pleasure-type movie.
The rest of Cars on the Road on Disney+
I’m running to the theaters to see The Woman King. Then sitting on my couch to watch the new season of Fate: The Winx Saga on Netflix. Then, checking out Vampire Academy on Peacock, and Goodnight, Mommy on Prime Video.
After finishing watching Cyberpunk: Edgerunners on Netflix, I plan to use a special offer for a heavily discounted month of Disney+ to watch all the episodes of The Owl House that are on there, as well as Enchanted. The latter is in preparation for the sequel coming this November.
