The 8 Best Movies and TV Shows to Watch This Weekend

*****, jokes, and two bisexual kaijus hope to rule our screens this weekend. Alternately, you could just blast the Talking Heads by rewatching Stop Making Sense (and listen to Lorde’s spin on “Take Me to the River”). But this weekend we all know Beyoncé is at the top of your mind, so here are the new TV shows and movies to fill your time between Cowboy Carter listens. —Savannah Salazar

Featured Presentations

Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire

They should just kiss and get it over with already. —S.S.

Good One: A Show About Jokes

Sounds familiar? It should be! It’s because this new Peacock special is derived from our very own colleague Jesse David Fox’s Vulture podcast, Good One. Co–executive produced by Fox and directed by Eddie Schmidt, this docuspecial focuses on comedian Mike Birbiglia as he crafts new material after his Broadway show The Old Man and the Pool. Alongside Birbiglia, Good One features appearances from Seth Meyers (******* icon in the making), Atsuko Okatsuka, Joe Birbiglia, and Hasan Minhaj. —S.S.

Steve! (martin)

Morgan Neville, Oscar-winning director of 20 Feet From Stardom and Won’t You Be My Neighbor?, turns his lens on Steve Martin for this two-part show (subtitled “A Documentary in 2 Pieces”), which traces Martin’s career from his days of wearing a fake arrow through his head to present. —J.C. 


Produced by the New York Times, Spermworld explores the world of ***** donors and their recipients who sidestep the typical process. In the trailer, one donor says he has 138 children, but that doesn’t top Vince Vaughn’s 533 children in Delivery Man, unfortunately. —S.S.

Finally Streaming

Stop Making Sense

Lamps beware: Stop Making Sense’s stunning 4K remaster is available on VOD now, and there’s no guarantee you won’t be tossed and whipped around as people watch and rewatch the incredible Talking Heads concert doc in their living rooms. —S.S.

Lisa Frankenstein

Diablo Cody and Zelda Williams’s off-beat comedy stumbled in theaters, but how fitting for their zombie love story to seek an afterlife on streaming. Starring Kathryn Newton as the titular heroine, Lisa Frankenstein follows a grief-stricken teen who’d rather spend time in a local cemetery than in high school as she meets a corpse (Cole Sprouse, who barely utters a word) from that cemetery and, naturally, lovesick murderous chaos ensues. —S.S.

We love our giant monsters, and, frankly one kaiju film — especially one as cutesy as the new one — isn’t enough for us. So for you, a few more:
