Streaming Picks: September 2021

FILMS
Top Picks
The Evil Dead and Evil Dead 2 – HBO Max 9/1
Grosse Pointe Blank – Hulu 9/1
Heist – Prime 9/1
Worth – Netflix 9/3
You can get spooky season started early with Sam Raimi’s horror masterpieces. The original is terrifying, especially considering its low budget. The sequel is even better because it tells the same story but with a lot more laughs.

Too few people have seen John Cusack’s hitman comedy, but it’s a hidden 90s gem with an absolutely killer soundtrack.

David Mamet’s excellent heist movie celebrates its 20th anniversary. Featuring one of the last performances by Gene Hackman, Mamet’s dialogue crackles, as double and triple crosses unravel a group of criminals.

Finally, Worth is Netflix’s first big Oscar play. Premiering at Sundance 2020, they held it back from the 20th anniversary of 9/11. Michael Keaton plays attorney Kenneth Feinberg, who was put in charge of determining payouts for victims who died in the terrorist attacks. The cast also includes Stanley Tucci and Amy Ryan.

NEW SHOWS & SPECIALS
Top Picks
Pepper Ann (Complete Series) – Disney+ 9/8
Scenes from a Marriage – HBO Max 9/12
Midnight Mass – Netflix 9/24
One of ABC’s best Saturday morning cartoons (with a killer theme song) is finally streaming in its entirety. Like a female Doug, Pepper Ann endures because of its universal themes.

Despite being obsessed with Oscar Isaac and Jessica Chastain (for obvious reasons), I’m only tentatively excited for this limited series. That’s because it has massive shoes to fill as a remake of Ingmar Bergman’s miniseries. Also, I don’t really need any bad vibes in my life, given the state of the world.

Mike Flanagan is my guy. One of the most consistent horror directors of the last decade, I’ll give pretty much anything he does a shot. That includes this new limited series about a creepy island community and some horrifying religious rituals.
