Forget the monster mash- how about a monster movie mashup?!? Tbh, the title really tells you all that you need to know about this one. Kong is on a quest to find his true home but is disrupted by Godzilla who is currently occupied with destroying the world. Nbd… Yes, the movie also features human stories and critics have actually praised the story development- but let’s be real, we’re all here for the big, epic, fight scenes between these two monsters- and this movie delivers! This is one of those films that was scheduled to be released last summer as a big blockbuster but is now streaming directly on HBO Max the same day it premieres in theaters. Find the person in your pod with the biggest TV and best surround sound and enjoy!

Alright- admittedly, cowboys are not typically the first thing that comes to mind when you think of Philadelphia. (Especially black cowboys!) But, believe it or not, this movie is based on real-life urban horse riders! Starring Idris Elba, the film is centered on a rebellious son who gets sent to live with his estranged dad for the summer and ultimately finds community among a group of urban cowboys. Tune in for a moving family drama that shines a light on an often forgotten about corner of American culture.
