Settle in for good times this weekend because there's a sling of binge-worthy goods you need to cross off your bucket list.

Here's everything you need to binge this weekend.

Mother!

Mother! was one of the biggest psychological horrors to come out of 2017 and good news, you can now watch this allegorical film on Netflix. We won’t spoil the actual plot of the movie for this (beware, it’s pretty hectic) but the overarching metaphor for this one is pretty symbolic. Directed by Darren Aronofsky, the movie alludes to the destruction of the world with Jennifer Lawrence resembling Mother Earth, Javier Bardem as God, Ed Harris as Adam and Michelle Pfeiffer as Eve.

The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance

How do we even begin to describe The Dark Crystal? Um… legendary. The story of The Dark Crystal started in 1982 as the wildly creative, slightly spooky, brainchild of Jim Henson and Frank Oz (of muppets fame) so, yes, it was an entirely puppeteered feature film. It followed the quest of Jen, the last of the Gelflings race, to find a missing shard of the Dark Crystal and restore balance to the world. The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance is a prequel to Jen’s adventure, focussing on three young Gelflings as they lead an uprising against the evil Emperor. Even better? It’s now puppets and CGI. The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance is out on Netflix August 30.
