Weekend Watching Tips: After Life, Eternals, Macbeth, and More


We hardly watch traditional TV anymore. Streaming video services like Apple TV+ (try for free), Netflix, Disney+ and Amazon Prime Video are more important than ever. But local providers such as Videoland, Film1 and Ziggo also have plenty to offer. More series are added every week and it is nice if you know which series, films and documentaries really stand out. We have therefore made a selection.

New on Apple TV+: The Tragedy of Macbeth

Film version of the Shakespeare drama. Directed by Joel Coen, this time without his brother Ethan, who had no interest in the subject. Starring Denzel Washington as Macbeth, the doomed king of Scotland, and Frances McDormand as Lady Macbeth.
