Streaming Picks: March 2021

Top Picks
Enemy of the State – Hulu 3/1
Coming 2 America – Prime 3/15
Zack Snyder’s Justice League – HBO MAX 3/18

Enemy of the State might be Tony Scott’s best movie. A quasi-sequel to The Conversation, it’s at once entertaining as hell and incredibly bleak and eerily prescient. It’s a must-watch.

Coming 2 America is the long-delayed sequel to Eddie Murphy’s fantastic 1988 fish-out-of-water comedy. There’s almost no chance it will be as good and funny as the original, but since there’s a lot of the creative team from the excellent Dolemite Is My Name, there’s still hope.

And then there’s the elephant in the room. I still can’t believe after a years-long insane fan campaign to see the version of Justice League unsullied by Joss Whedon’s involvement was successful, but here we are. I don’t think there’s any way to actually save this movie, especially by adding two more hours, but this is such an weird curio that I have to see for myself.

NEW SHOWS & SPECIALS
Top Pick
The Falcon and the Winter Soldier – Disney+ 3/19
While the debate rages on about whether WandaVision was truly clever or just a pale imitation, this is a straight-up WYSIWYG show from Marvel. It’s two characters from the MCU going on missions and kicking some ass. Whether that’s an improvement remains to be seen.
