Weekend Watch: New Movies Coming to Netflix, HBO

Looking for a new movie to watch this weekend? We have compiled a selection of the new releases coming this Friday to Sunday on the top streaming services including Netflix, HBO Max, Hulu and Amazon Prime.

The list includes Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey, a Netflix original musical film featuring a toymaker (Forest Whitaker) and his granddaughter; The Life Ahead, a Netflix original film starring Sophia Loren (she’s back!) as a Holocaust survivor who cares for a 12-year-old boy after he robs her; The Dictator, the 2012 spoof starring Sacha Baron Cohen as a hunted dictator who seeks refuge in New York City;  I Am Greta, a Hulu original documentary about Swedish teen environmentalist Greta Thunberg; and Doolittle, the 2020 remake of the doctor who doubles as an animal whisperer. This edition stars Robert Downey Jr. in the title role.

Netflix’s The Life Ahead seems to be the standout in the group. Rottentomatoes.com, which tracks critical reviews, gives the film a score of 92 out of a possible 100, based on 28 reviews.

“A classic example of how a talented actor can elevate somewhat standard material, The Life Ahead proves Sophia Loren’s star power remains absolutely undimmed,” the site states, summarizing the 28 reviews.
