Nowadays, choosing what to watch can seem nearly impossible with the number of shows and movies available on the many streaming platforms. Sometimes we get caught up browsing and scrolling for so long that we simply give up and switch off the TV. Despite this, it can be challenging to choose from all the popular TV episodes and films on websites like Netflix. Fortunately, we've decided to simplify this process by selecting some top shows and movies from various streaming providers, making that interminable scroll a thing of the past. From the regal show, The Empress, to some Halloween Hocus pocus two on Disney+, here is the list of you want to watch these Hollywood shows.
The Empress is a new regal drama on Netflix that will undoubtedly keep you entertained. The show recounts the life of Austrian empress Elisabeth of Bavaria. A Royalty obsessed podcast host Rachel Bowie remarked in her 4-star review, "It gives fresh life to private conversations and feelings that raise the drama to a fever pitch."
In this new Netflix thriller, Allison Janney, an Oscar and Emmy-winning actress, plays Lou, a despondent landlady who aids her neighbour in the search for her kidnapped daughter. It was one of the most watched movies on Netflix after its premiere.
Hocus Pocus 2
Fall has officially arrived, and with Halloween quickly approaching, Hocus Pocus 2 has premiered at the ideal time. The Sanderson sisters (played by Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Kathy Najimy) are resurrected in this sequel to the classic family comedy of the 1990s. Still, they face more fierce opposition this time. Fans of the first film should not be concerned, Hocus Pocus 2 contains just as many laughs and thrills as the first.
This famous Netflix reality series, described as a real-life Crazy Rish Asians, follows a group of East and Southeast Asian-American socialites trying to live their most luxurious lifestyles in Los Angeles. And now that the third season has begun, it's time to start streaming (and prepare to feel the envy).
