What to Watch This Weekend: August 2, 2019

In Theaters: Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw
The beautiful visuals, action scenes, hand to hand combat, and technology and weaponry make this an enjoyable summer blockbuster through and through.  Hobbs and Shaw is the fast summer ride that we expected, so jump into an exotic car, buckle up, and enjoy the ride.  Check out our review here.

At Redbox: Alita: Battle Angel
A complete visual treat, Alita: Battle Angel took the difficult task of making a feature length movie from an old Japanese anime, and did an amazing job.  Our review said that the "animation and sound are awe-inspiring, and the effort that the filmmakers went to to realize this world is great to see."  

Streaming (Starz): Stan & Ollie
A beautiful movie about two amazing entertainers, Stan & Ollie casts some of my favorite actors as the iconic duo.  The film shows the nuances of this entertainment marriage and the trials and beauty of the duo's comedic bond. 

Streaming (Amazon): Burning
An overlooked gem from 2018, Burning is a slow and suspenseful film that takes a deep look at some very flawed characters.  It is not action packed, but it is something that you'll want to pay attention to throughout.  The film is a slow, but satisfying burn.
