Everything streaming on Netflix, Stan, BINGE, Amazon Prime Video and Disney+ that’s worth your time from August 9-15.

NETFLIX

The Kissing Booth 3 (11th)

The third and final part of the Kissing Booth trilogy is finally here and this time… it’s at the beach. Look, fans will know what they’re in for and likely delight in it. Everyone else will just ponder how COVID unsafe a kissing booth actually is.

Misha and the Wolves (11th)

Fascinating documentary about an extraordinary woman who escaped the Holocaust and lived among wolves… or did she? Not everything is at it seems in this tale and it’s a gripping yarn from start to finish.

Riverdale S5 (12th)

The second half of Riverdale’s fifth season is finally here and fans will delight in this strange, occasionally gripping reimagining of those corny old Archie comics. We’re still mad at Netflix for getting rid of the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, though.

Brand New Cherry Flavour (13th)

Part stylish revenge flick, part timely social commentary, Brand New Cherry Flavour is a twisted tale set in 90s Hollywood. Probably not one to watch with your nan, but those horror fans out there with a taste for the exotic will love to sample this particular flavour.

Beckett (13th)

Tense thriller starring John David Washington about an American tourist who becomes the subject of a manhunt after a devastating accident. Total edge of your seat stuff here with a fabulous lead and loads of festival buzz.

STAN

Walker S1 Finale (13th)

So, not only did they remake the old Chuck Norris show Walker, Texas Ranger, they cast ol’ mate Jared Padalecki, one of the hot monster-killing brothers from Supernatural. The bad news is, this is the season one finale. The good news, you can now binge the whole first season!

The Notebook (14th)

Oh, don’t give us that look. You know when it comes up in your Stan queue you’re going to watch it. Doomed love, rainy day pashing and the simmering romance between Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams. Stop pretending.

Heels (15th)

Brand spanking new drama with plenty of punch, Heels is about two brothers who play out scripted wrestling matches for a crowd while genuinely fight it out behind the scenes over a family inheritance. Plenty of oiled pecs, swollen biceps and human drama here. Stephen Amell (Arrow) stars.

The Truman Show (15th)

The Truman Show is one of those films that just seems smarter and smarter every year. Released in 1998, this is one of Aussie director Peter Weir’s most accomplished works, with Jim Carrey also providing a surprisingly nuanced, disciplined turn. About time for a rewatch, we reckon.

BINGE

PICK OF THE WEEK

Reservation Dogs S1 (eps 1 and 2) (10th)

The brainchild of co-creator Taika Waititi, Reservation Dogs is an hilarious, relaxed comedy about indigenous teenagers living in rural Oklahoma. The stakes are small, the crime is small, the laughs are big. Get ready for your next gentle comedy obsession.

The End S1 (11th)

Occasionally bleak, but well observed, dramedy about three generations of a family trying to work out how to die with dignity and enjoy the time they have left. Plenty of Aussie talent on show here in this local production, including Frances O’Connor and Noni Hazlehurst.

DC’s Stargirl S2 (11th)

Stargirl is back for its second season. So, if you’re still not getting tired of this superhero thing yet, the news is excellent! Kid-friendly, well made and brimming with heart.

We Got Love Teyana & Iman S1 (14th)

Triple threat Teyana and NBA star Iman, along with a massive entourage, get into all sorts of adventures in this reality TV jam that will have anyone over the age of 40 asking, “who?” But hey, your kids are gonna love it.

Strangest Things S1 (15th)

From a piece of meteorite found in Tutankhamun's tomb to the Crown of Thorns, Strangest Things explores some of the weirdest artifacts and obscure junk hidden away in boxes, storage rooms and people’s attics.

Amazon Prime Video

Modern Love S2 (13th)

Second season of the star-studded anthology series, which has stand alone stories with love as a major theme. Some are light, some are heavy, some are genuinely brilliant, but all of them focus on what unites us and bonds us together: the need to find love, in one form or another.

Star Trek: Lower Decks S2 (13th)

The zanier side of the Star Trek universe drops its second season, which is bound to thrill those of a more nerdy persuasion. Solid animation and chuckles who know their Tribbles from their transporters.

Saving Private Ryan (15th)

One of the greatest war films of all time, not to mention one of Steven Spielberg’s best, Saving Private Ryan is a heartbreaking, moving and occasionally shocking WWII flick that’s well worth revisiting. The first 20 minutes alone are more confronting than most horror movies, so be prepared.

DISNEY+

What If…? (11th)

The latest offering from Marvel and Disney+, asks the question “What If?” What if Peggy Carter took the super soldier serum instead of Steve Rogers? What if T’Challa was Star Lord? What if a bunch of Marvel characters became zombies? This is heaven for superhero obsessives.

For those still salty about Agent Carter getting axed, What If...? will provide a much-needed episode. Picture: Disney+

Spidey and His Amazing Friends (11th)

Brand new animated show aimed squarely at the younger ones, featuring lots of bright colours, zany quips and family friendly action. If you’ve got ruggies, get used to seeing this on in the background… over and over again.

The Predator (13th)

Divisive and critically maligned Predator film from director Shane Black. While it’s certainly not the equal of the 1987 action classic, there’s fun to be had in this irreverent, if studio tampered, slice of violent action comedy.
