With cable, Netflix, and internet options, finding the best thing to watch during your downtime is difficult. Instead of flipping through menus all weekend and settling on nothing, turn to What to Watch This Weekend, a series in which we give you our pick for the best new show or movie available.
We get it. This weekend is going to be filled with booze, barbecues, and beaches. When you’re nursing that hangover and don’t feel like going out, we recommend flipping on War Machine, the new Netflix Original starring Brad Pitt as General Stanley McChrystal in a fictionalized retelling of his mission in Afghanistan and his subsequent firing. The real draw here is Brad Pitt’s incredible accent game, first shown off when he was “killin’ Naazis” in Inglourious Basterds. Yup, it’s back—and it’s “glourious.” War Machine hits Netflix today, so carve out some time for it this weekend between burgers.
