Here are the best selections for streaming and renting this weekend to assist you in deciding what to watch tonight.

Do Revenge

Netflix has a lot of content available for streaming.

Is there a teen dark comedy starring Riverdales Camila Mendes and Stranger Things Maya Hawke, with Sarah Michelle Gellar and Sophie Turner? Sign us up.

From our evaluation:

Do Revenge, like other films in the mean-girls high school genre, is a natural extension of this type of film for 2022. Some parts of high school are constants, but youth culture rapidly changes, so teen movies especially those adapting or paying homage to older material risk feeling outdated.

Three Thousand Years of Longing

Where to look: Available for rent for $19.99 on Amazon, Apple, and Vudu

George Miller's Three Thousand Years of Longing is based on A. S. Byatt's 1994 book The Djinn in the Nightingales Eye. Dr. Alithea Binnie (Tilda Swinton) is a scholar of myths and narrative who uncorks a Djinn (Idris Elba) from a bottle he has been imprisoned in for the previous hundred years. Each story has a thread of loss, longing,

From our review:

Three Thousand Years of Longing is one of those films, a story about complicated genres that are uninterested in their magic as a cloying, unifying force. They are more powerful than that. They are more dangerous than that. And there are few more satisfying ways to learn from them than watching two individuals who think they know all there is to know about a story.

Vengeance

Where to watch: Peacock is available for streaming on the website.

In his directorial debut, B.J. Novak takes the podcast-style mystery to the big screen, staring as a New York-based journalist who travels to Texas to investigate a disappearance.

From our evaluation, this is:

The fact that Ben himself is self-conscious about his possible East Coast condescension adds another layer to the film's pleasantness, but these extra layers don't necessarily enhance the movie's overall experience.

Breaking

Where to find the show: Available to rent for $19.99 on Amazon, Apple, and Vudu.

Brian Brown-Easley, a Marine Corps veteran who threatens to blow up a Wells Fargo bank in order to pay his veterans' payments, is played by John Boyega in the thriller Breaking.

In one of his final roles in Breaking, Michael K. Williams plays Eli Bernard, a police officer sympathetic to the Brown-Easleys' plight and attempting to deescalate the hostage situation.

Goodnight Mommy

Where to find it: Prime Video is available to stream.

Goodnight Mommy, a psychological horror film starring Naomi Watts, has been rebooted in 2022. After arriving at their mothers secluded country house to discover her face covered in bandages, the twin boys begin to suspect that she isn't their mother.

From our inspection:

The biggest issue looming when Goodnight Mommy's English-language remake was announced, and whether or not it would be as savage and nihilistically as the original. Not only does the remake lack the courage to even approach the original in terms of terror and on-screen pain, but it does not really function as a film in its own right.

Naomi Watts plays the titular Mommy in the new film, which has since been translated into English. The Ring and Funny Games may have seemed like an easy choice for the lead of yet another American remake of an internationally famous horror film. The problems with the remakes aren't due to her lack of craft or effort; they're all related to the writing and direction.

Drifting Home

Where to find Netflix content: Available for streaming

Drifting Home, the latest anime feature from Hiroyasu Ishidas (Penguin Highway), focuses on childhood friends Kosuke and Natsume who, after visiting the apartment building where they used to live before it was demolished, are transported to another dimension surrounded by a vast ocean. The two must now work together to navigate back to their own place.

From our evaluation:

The striking animation by Studio Colorido (Penguin Highway, A Whisker Away) carries a lot of punch. Structures shift and break with believable force, even though the driving action is about a building floating through the ocean like a raft. To similar effect, the young actors are drawn with subtle, gentle lines, but Akihiro Nagaes direction never obsesses over realism.

Broad Peak

Where to find out: Netflix has a variety of services available for streaming.

Broad Peak follows Berbeka's journey to the summit of one of the most dangerous mountain in the world nearly 25 years after his first unsuccessful expedition.

Dog

Where to Find It: Prime Video is now available for streaming.

Channing Tatum has previously played a dog-man, but what about a guy with a dog?

Tatum co-directed and stars as an Army Ranger mourning the death of his friend who embarks on an extended road trip to bring his pal's dog to the funeral.

Confess, Fletch

Where to watch: Available on Amazon, Apple, and Vudu for $19.99.

Jon Hamm will fill in for Chevy Chase as the quick-witted comedic detective in this reboot of the 1980s comedy series.

From our review:

The way Hamms' reboot of the series is being reimagined in several theaters and on VOD shows how little faith Miramax has in the project. The movie, though, is different. It's fleet and amusing, and it's far superior to what grown-up moviegoers used to see a lot more often today. But Confess, Fletch is refreshing, not just for how it uses comedy.

Flux Gourmet

What to watch: Shudder is available for download.

With this captivating drama set at a culinary institute, acclaimed filmmaker Peter Strickland (The Duke of Burgundy, In Fabric) makes a comeback. The trailer promises sensory overload, Stricklands typical impeccable styling and attention to detail, and the unsettling air you often find in his films.
