For The Kids: Paw Patrol: The Movie (Theaters and Paramount+)

For A Dramatic Retreat: Nine Perfect Strangers (Hulu)
Nine Perfect Strangers has a fantastic cast, who play a variety of broken characters, and an idyllic setting for this guru-inspired mind opening and altering experience.  For more information, check out the review!

For An Utterly Ridiculous And Hilarious Sequel: The Hitman's Wife's Bodyguard (Redbox)
Hitman's Wife's Bodyguard's wonderful cast, random and ridiculous comedy, and amazing soundtrack make for the kind of laugh-out-loud movie we need right now.  For more information, check out the review!

For A Better Medical Family Drama: John Q (Showtime)
Sweet Girl came out on Netflix this week, but John Q is an overall better film that rails against the cost of the medical system without the ridiculous story and thriller aspects that Sweet Girl tried to introduce.  

For The Return Of A Horror Icon: Jakob's Wife (Shudder)
Jakob's Wife has an old school feel, strong characters, a great balance of dark comedy and horror, and a well-paced story that has plenty to sink your teeth into.  For more information, check out the review!
