What to Watch This Weekend: Pig, Roadrunner, Gunpowder Milkshake, Space Jam, Spongebob, Fear Street, Wrath of Man, Best of Enemies

For The Wanderer: Roadrunner (Theaters)
Roadrunner chronicles the life of an influential chef and person, and much like Bourdain himself, shines a light on the good and the bad while creating a satisfying movie experience.    For more information, check out the review!

For The Kids: Space Jam: A New Legacy (Theaters and HBO Max)
Space Jam: A New Legacy has the King and a liberal use of some classic Warner properties, that is both an an enjoyable follow on to the classic cartoon basketball movie and a strange WB and LeBron marketing film.  It's streaming on HBO Max for a month so definitely check it out there!  For more information, check out the review!

For A Dramatic Nic Cage Experience: Pig (Theaters)
Pig takes flavors from several different genres and prepares them with some delicious acting from Cage and Wolff, and a stellar soundtrack to create a layered, unique stew.  For more information, check out the review

For A Neon Female John Wick: Gunpowder Milkshake (Netflix)
Gunpowder Milkshake is a stylish film that melds noir, neon, spaghetti westerns, and some badass ladies into a female-focused, more light hearted but no less brutal John Wick-type film.  For more information, check out the review!

For More Kids: Spongebob Squarepants (Redbox)
Spongebob Squarepants: Sponge on the Run updates the animation and adds some stellar cameos but keeps the characters, silliness, and craziness that makes Spongebob what it is.  For more information, check out the review!

For A Poignant Historical Drama: Best of Enemies (Netflix)
A historical film starring two amazing actors playing very different characters, The Best of Enemies tells the story of the clash between a civil rights advocate and a leader in the local Ku Klux Klan in North Carolina during school integration.  This was an underappreciated film in theaters and should not be missed now!

For A Darker Guy Ritchie Experience: Wrath of Man (Redbox)
Wrath of Man has Ritchie's trademark sharp writing, style, and a solid Statham performance, but with a darker tone and more intense action.  For more information, check out the review!

For A Horror Conclusion: Fear Street Part Three 1666 (Netflix)
I thought this was the weakest of the Fear Street films, but if you've made it this far you're going to conclude the story!  Fear Street Part Three 1666 concludes the trilogy's story with shock revelations, a good sense of dread, and a neon-laced epic final showdown.  For more information, check out the review!
