The First Time (Youtube [Free w/ ads] – Trailer)
Don’t sleep on Dylan O’Brien and don’t sleep on this movie. Dylan’s busy pining after the hottest girl at school (who’s friend-zoned him so hard, but Dylan’s a good guy, so he respects that) when he meets Britt Robertson at a Friday night party. Their chance meeting turns into a weekend of romance and a lot of firsts for both of them. Relive the best parts of high school this weekend with this indie rom-com featuring a stellar soundtrack.
Midnight Run (Amazon – Trailer)
This movie is talked about A LOT in Hollywood so I thought I would finally give this bad boy a watch. Obviously, Robert De Niro, a bounty hunter, and Charles Grodin, a fugitive accountant, traveling 3000 miles as they crisscross America did not disappoint. They travel through every mode of transportation and get involved in multiple car chases and gunfights. Since we can’t currently travel across America, I highly suggest you join these two this weekend.
The Sisters Brothers (Hulu – Trailer)
Jake Gyllenhaal, Riz Ahmed, John C. Reilly, and Joaquin Phoenix. No it’s not a comic book crossover film, it’s a western! Jake and Riz decide to team up and build a new society in Texas with the wealth they find in the gold rush land of California. At first they’re on the run from brothers Joaquin and John, but when they combine forces to maximize gold findings, things take a turn for the worse.
Miss Juneteenth (Amazon – Trailer)
After Nicole Beharie’s scene stealing moments in the last season of Black Mirror, I knew I needed more of her on screen immediately. Her portrayal of Turquoise shows the depths and multitudes of a woman who knows her potential and what she’s capable of, and just wants to pass that power, knowledge, and strength on to her daughter. It’s more than just a pageant film.
