Another week in which the cinemas are out of bounds. However, we can help you fix your cinema. There are a few new Netflix movies and shows that can be streamed this weekend, as well as numerous additions to Amazon Prime and Disney Plus. Whatever streaming service you have, there is something for you here.
A brief overview of the highlights. Eurovision Song Contest: The story of Fire Saga was released on Netflix. The film won positive reviews for its joyous, obscene comedy. Then there are a few classics at Amazon Prime. We highlighted Sunset Boulevard, although Peter Jackson & aposs Bad Taste is also available in the United States.

Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga - Netflix
The video continues in the 1930s
Eurovision was written by Will Ferrell and SNL writer Adam Steele (in full collaboration with Eurovision) and focuses on Lars (Ferrell) and Sigrit (Rachel McAdams), an Icelandic pop duo called Fire Saga that has long dreamed of to win the song contest and escape the fjords and inappropriate knitwear of their tiny village. Seemingly destined to only play concerts at the local hostel - much to the embarrassment of Lars' seal pa (Pierce Brosnan) - the couple get their wish when Iceland's official participant is blown up. Can you fulfill your fate if Sigrit has a deep love for Lars while suffering from a fraud syndrome? Let's hope so.

Sunset Boulevard is one of the most famous films of all time and revolves around William Holden & aposs Joe Gillis, a screenwriter who accidentally spends the night in the house of Norma Desmond, a former silent film star who still hopes for the pictures. Gloria Swanson - herself a former silent film actress - plays Norma perfectly, and the director, Billy Wilder & aposs, claims this is certainly one of the greatest films ever made.

If you haven't seen Archer yet, do yourself a favor and stream this fun animated show through a spy agency called ISIS! Archer & aposs a lovable, terrible person who & aposs basically James Bond - when 007 worked for his mother and was unable to hold his drink as well. There are several seasons to get through, and if you end up looking for more archers, there are a few more left. Formulation!
Jungle Book - Disney Plus

Director Jon Favreau breathes new life into one of Disney's most famous animated films in this photo-realistic reinterpretation of The Jungle Book. The young actor Neel Sethi plays Mowgli and is lovable in every way. He asserts himself against icons such as Bill Murray, Lupita Nyong'o, Idris Elba and Christopher Walken. It is sometimes difficult to forget that the animals on the screen are not real and you cannot see the Discovery Channel. Don't worry, the classic songs are still there, though “Trust in Me” feels all the darker this time when the snake looks so convincing. It is a beautiful story and we are sure that it will kidnap you, although we cannot judge whether you are running behind the sofa the first time King Louis appears on the screen.

Legally blonde - Amazon Prime

This absolute belter certainly doesn't need an introduction. Reese Witherspoon is the best-known lawyer in film history: Elle Woods. When Elle is released from her uptight friend Warner, she visits Harvard Law School to prove that he should never have underestimated her. Trying to prove himself to a man and win back a terrible friend, Elle discovers that she is better than that and finds the career of her dreams and a new purpose. We have no doubt that the sale of pink, fluffy pens skyrocketed when this film hit the screen. For those who do not think that this is a feel-good classic, we decline!
Ocean's 8 - Amazon Prime
Video not available
Unfortunately, this video is not available in your region.
Who doesn't love robbery? Sandra Bullock and Cate Blanchett lead the team in Ocean & aposs 8, a film in which eight very different women with completely different skills come together to commit the perfect crime at the Met Gala. Rihanna, Anne Hathaway, Awkafina, Mindy Kaling, Helena Bonham Carter and Sarah Paulson form the other members of the team. Ocean & aposs 8 stands alone as a gripping thriller that oozes coolness, and the best part is that it never takes itself too seriously.
