Watched at Home: Top 20 Streaming Films for the Week of June 19
Woa boy! Is it weird that I feel an overwhelming sense of joy whenever I see a new title take the top spot on DEG’s Watched at Home Top 20 list? Hopefully, the three of you that read these articles feel the same way because this week finally sees the fall of Sonic the Hedgehog!
That’s right, fellow couch potatoes — the little blue furry guy got trumped by The Invisible Man. Universal’s terrific update of its classic invisible fella property has had one helluva run. Initially, the flick didn’t even appear on this list. Then, a few weeks ago, the Elisabeth Moss hit suddenly jumped into the Top 10 and slowly made its way to No. 1. No one saw it coming.
Sonic still remained at No. 2, followed by long holdover Jumanji: The Next Level and — hold the phone! Stop the presses! Yellowstone: Season 1? Look, I may criticize you guys for having the audacity to propel Bloodshot to No. 1, but today I’m actually proud. Yellowstone is a damned fine show; and I’m happy people are starting to recognize it as such.
The rest of the list consists of the same titles, just in different order. I’m genuinely shocked to see Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker on this list after all these weeks, and considering it dropped off completely about a month ago.
Kudos for keeping Harry Potter alive. Ten points to you all!
1. The Invisible Man (Universal, 2020)
