Our top 10 weekly selection of DSTV Now | Showmax | YouTube | Netflix | Amazon Prime

We’re going to make things very simple and easy for you this weekend in terms of suggestions of what you can stream. You should still be pretty much overloaded with the jam packed HBO marathon I gave you last week, the South African true crime series and the list of six movies the week before that.

So how about we gooi you with some short films from the Silwerskermfees? There’s a whole bunch of them and I’ve selected ten of them for you to enjoy. You can klap all ten of them in one sitting of 2 hours and 40 minutes or you can sprinkle them over your weekend as you please. As the majority of the movies barely reach the 15-minute mark, it is almost pointless to show you the trailers, so how about some very cryptic descriptions in Mengels in stead? It will serve two purposes:

1)  It will not give away the plot
2) It will teach you some basic mengels (a mixture of Afrikaans en Engels) because the more Mengels you praat, the better you will verstaan how Afrikaans works and short films are a great way of verstaaning and leering how Afrikaans gepraat word.

Let’s skop dit af:

Need more streaming goodness? Check out our top 10 list of movies and TV series picks from The Plumlist. It is my to-go-to website when I’m stuck for streaming ideas from Netflix, Showmax and Amazon Prime:
 #10. Judy offers an insightful look at the life of an iconic star
No one could have predicted that Renée Zellweger would play Judy Garland to an Oscar in the biographical music drama Judy. While Zellweger wouldn’t be the first or maybe even fifth person you’d expect to play Garland, she delivers a spirited career best performance. Just as versatile as her character, Zellweger makes the transition seem effortless, embracing the part with empathy and understanding.

# 9. Interview: Michael K Williams on playing Montrose in Lovecraft Country

#8. Brand New Cherry Flavor is “an engrossing and pleasantly odd ride”
My late great-aunt Edie was a gentle and sensitive soul. Whenever she’d watch television or movies, she’d keep a cushion on her lap, into which she would bury her face every time something scary or disturbing happened on-screen. Now, decades later, after watching this extremely crazy, extraordinarily weird, oftentimes hugely disturbing limited series, I can finally relate.

 #7. Sandra Oh aces the lead role in acclaimed comedy-drama The Chair
There’s so much good stuff going in this new drama comedy series, where to even begin? What about Sandra Oh, who has stepped out of pure television dramas like Grey’s Anatomy and Killing Eve and dipped her feet in comedy waters? It’s a most agreeable temperature and she’s showing herself to be an accomplished swimmer.

 #2. Seven reasons to watch Huisgenoot: Ware Lewensdramas
South Africans have not stopped talking about Devilsdorp since it was released on Showmax at the end of July. One of the things that make the true-crime drama stand out is how the inconceivable bizarreness of event upon event makes up the canvas of the unbelievably horrific bigger picture of the Krugersdorp Killings between 2012 and 2016.

 #1. Gripping South African docuseries for Devilsdorp fans
The unbelievable docuseries Devilsdorp has undoubtedly awakened South Africans’ appetite for true-crime dramas and I find myself searching for more of these stories, more often. It is the perfect filler between Hollywood blockbusters, but believe me – once you’ve watched one just to change up your viewing a bit, you’ll get lost in it, over and over again.

Our randomized trailer pick of the week

Each week we take a number from 1 to 10 from our list of suggestions and put it through a randomizer to choose a trailer to show you. This week it landed on our number 1 spot, Gripping South African docuseries for Devilsdorp fansand we selected Keerpunt:
Keerpunt looks at the unbelievable and inconceivable, and they aren’t all fairy tales. Take Estelle’s “keerpunt” for example: she and her husband are ordinary South Africans who were looking forward to celebrating their 40th wedding anniversary with an overseas trip on a cruise ship and meeting up with their son in the UK towards the end of their holiday to celebrate the dad’s 65th birthday. Things go catastrophically wrong when they end up in the middle of the chaos of the Tunisian terror attack of 2015, in which 38 tourists were mowed down indiscriminately.

Miraculously, the South Africans walked away with their lives. No harm came to Estelle’s husband but she got hit by bullets twice in her lower body and their real troubles only started after the terrorists were killed. Their unbelievable story is also only one of 37 in the series!
