First of all, here are the past week’s top highlights:

It’s the end of the world as we know it! Or so it is for Jay Burchell and co. as the apocalypse descends upon the Hollywood Hills. When the rapture comes and people ascend to heaven, those left behind must fend for themselves as the apocalypse brings unparalleled destruction.

The Lovebirds (2020) N

Originally scheduled for a theatrical release, the COVID-19 pandemic put a stop to that. Still, it’s a huge gain for Netflix, so fill your boots this weekend with a new hilarious comedy starring Issa Rae and Kumail Nanjiani.

Unexpectedly embroiled in a murder mystery, Jibran and Leilani come to a critical crossroads in their relationship. The journey to clear their names leads them from one extreme and hilarious situation to the next. While the couple must figure out how on earth they can survive, they must also figure out how their relationship can survive the night.

Shrek (2001)

Shrek is love. Shrek is life. The noughties craze for the great big green ogre has been ongoing for almost 20 years now and despite the last film in the franchise arriving a decade ago, the original is still just as popular.

When the tiny Lord Farquaad exiles all of the fairy tale creatures to the swamp, the ogre Shrek is unhappy by the arrival of his new guests. To claim his home back for himself, Shrek, with the help of a talking Donkey, take on a quest for Lord Farquaad to rescue Princess Fiona, who is trapped in a castle guarded by a dragon.
