There’s got to be something you can watch while waiting for your date this weekend. Can’t decide? Check these out.
How about reliving a summer romance?
“I was wondering if, maybe, you wanted to hang out.” How many times did you want to say this, to that girl, back in high school, while you were doing that summer program for extra credit? How often did you work up the courage to finally go up to her, only to chicken out at the last moment?
In The Last Summer, recent high school graduates navigate their way through their final summer before taking off for college. Starring KJ Apa of Riverdale fame, the film follows four friends as they wrestle with love lost and found, form friendships in unexpected circumstances, and decide who they will be and what they will do. Next stop: adulthood.
What are your summer memories like? Reminisce when The Last Summer lands on Netflix on May 3.
You missed Coachella, but you can still watch Beyoncé.
If your date feels strongly about social issues like race, education, and oppression (chances are you do, too), Homecoming: A Film by Beyoncé is going to give you all the feels.
In 2018, Beyonce Knowles headlined Coachella, and she was the first black woman to headline the music fest. “This wasn’t a concert. It was a musical revolution. It was black love and black beauty,” said the Boston Globe.
In Homecoming, you can watch not only the historic performance, but the emotional creative journey, the interviews and the concepts that led to this powerful moment. And those drumbeats are going to send tingles down your spine.
Catch Homecoming on Netflix, streaming now.
Horror movies are great for second dates!
If your date goes well, maybe you can even see a movie next week. Whether it’s a psychological thriller or a gruesome series of murders, the jump scares and the suspense in any horror movie will give you plenty to talk about.
In The Curse of La Llorona, a Latin American legend comes to life, stealing children away until a social worker and a disillusioned priest decide to keep evil at bay. The horror flick isn’t due to open in Philippine theaters until May 1, but you can catch it during the whole-day sneak previews on April 22 and 23 in selected cinemas nationwide.
The Curse of La Llorona is distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures, a WarnerMedia Company.
