Recovering from this weekend’s Barbenheimer craze and don’t know what to watch next? Two theatrical releases from last year—Honk for Jesus. Save Your Soul, a mockumentary starring Regina Hall and Sterling K. Brown, and Ticket to Paradise, a rom-com that reunites George Clooney and Julia Roberts—make their streaming debuts this week.

8. The Witcher, season three, volume two (Netflix)
