Here are this weekend's latest entertainment releases on TV and in theaters:
1) Johnny English Strikes Again

Cue Johnny English who has been in retirement and "inactive" who comes back on the scene to help solve the case.
This comedy is rated PG and is not getting the best of reviews from Rotten Tomatoes or audiences but don't let that discourage you. Critics give is 34% positive where audiences give it 56% positive.

2) Hunter Killer
Audiences are giving this one high scores while critics...not so much. The flick is described as follows: "Deep under the Arctic Ocean, American submarine Captain Joe Glass (Gerard Butler, Olympus Has Fallen, 300) is on the hunt for a U.S. sub in distress when he discovers a secret Russian coup is in the offing, threatening to dismantle the world order. Captain Glass must now assemble an elite group of Navy SEALs to rescue the kidnapped Russian president and sneak through enemy waters to stop WWIII."
With a high score of 87% from audiences and a low score of 35% from critics, you have to be the judge yourself! This film is rated R for strong language and violence.

3) Mid 90s
Written and directed by Jonah Hill, this story follows the life of 13 year old Stevie in L.A. during the "mid 90s". It highlights his troubled life at home and his outside life where he befriends a new group of skater friends. Watch as Hill takes you through what life was like for this young man on the cusp of manhood in the mid 90s.
This film is indeed labeled as a comedy and it is rated R for strong language, sexual content, and drug/alcohol use.
I will say it looks interesting...check out the trailer, here:
1) The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina
A remake on the classic TV show that we remember starring Melissa Joan Hart, Netflix is putting out a spookier or darker story of Sabrina. It's not the funny/sarcastic sitcom we remember. On Sabrina's 16th birthday, she has to choose between the life of her family, as a witch, or the mortal life of her friends.
I personally loved the original sitcom. Salem the cat is my all time favorite TV cat! I'm definitely intrigued by this. I do hope Salem is still the funny, witty cat who can add some humor to the show!
Check out the Netflix trailer of the series premiere here:
2) Midnight, Texas
Season 2 is premiering this weekend of the series about a supernatural group of beings who take refuge in Midnight, Texas. You have a vampire, witch, psychic, and other types of supernatural beings who form a community to protect one another from the outside world. Season 1 premiered in 2017 and now it's back for a second season on NBC.

Those are your top entertainment releases for this October weekend! Enjoy and have a good weekend!
