Whether you’re looking for a feel-good comedy, or a horror movie to keep you tossing and turning at night, there’s a little something for everyone. Here are eight great movies you can watch right now on the streaming platform. 

One Night in Miami

Released in late 2020, One Night in Miami was praised for King’s direction, its tight script that was adapted almost directly from the original play, and the incredible performances of its four lead actors. Leslie Odom Jr., earned an Academy Award nomination for his role as Cooke. 

Sound of Metal

A musical drama film like no other, Sound of Metal features Riz Ahmed giving a powerhouse performance as a heavy metal drummer who suddenly begins losing his hearing. 

The Big Sick

The Big Sick boasts a talented cast of diverse actors, including Zoe Kazan, Holly Hunt, Ray Romano, and Bo Burnham, and a great script that was nominated for numerous awards, including an Oscar. 


In many ways, Landline feels a lot like a Woody Allen movie at the peak of his career, characterized by the humor, New York setting, and the complicated relationships between the sisters and their parents.
