When we last saw Jo Koy, he was the subject of much criticism as the host of the 2024 Golden Globes. Now, Koy is back with his fifth stand-up special for Netflix, Jo Koy: Live from Brooklyn. Filmed at the iconic King’s Theatre in Brooklyn, New York, Koy riffs on various topics, including social media, mumble rap, and “energy vampires.”

In one of the segments, Koy explains how getting older has led to more physical ailments, like lactose intolerance and sciatica. At  53, Koy jokes to the crowd that the older he gets, the more he realizes he needs to get off his phone and start living life. That’s a valuable lesson in a comedic special full of laughs.

Many TikTokers have become famous for dancing. Sisters Miranda and Melanie Wilking are two of the app’s success stories, generating millions of followers and impressions that led to monetary partnerships with notable brands. Miranda joined 7M Films, a management company owned by Robert Shinn, a pastor at Shekinah Church.

Miranda started spending more time with 7M and less with her family. This eventually led Melanie and her parents to come out in 2022 and state that 7M was a cult manipulating Miranda. Dancing for the Devil: The 7M TikTok Cult explores the dark side of the management company and investigates if the cult accusations are true. It’s an eye-opening look into how a church can manipulate and influence its followers.

3 underrated Netflix movies you should watch this weekend (June 14-16)
Three people stand and laugh in Wanderlust.

The Bad Boys have saved summer. Last weekend, Bad Boys: Ride or Die topped the box office by earning a healthy $56 million, which exceeded the disappointing openings of The Fall Guy and Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga. Reports of cinema's demise have been greatly exaggerated it seems, and this weekend's Inside Out 2 is poised to make even more summer cash.

For Netflix, it's business as usual. The Richard Linklater action-comedy Hit Man is deservedly finding its audience, while the schlocky sci-fi movie Atlas continues to attract both the curious and masochists. The streamer also has an extensive library of hidden gems that are still worth watching. This weekend, check out these three underrated movies that should keep you away from the beach or the sun for awhile.
