The best Movies Streaming November

(Welcome to Now Stream This, a column dedicated to the best movies streaming on Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, and every other streaming service out there.) 

Break out the cranberry sauce: it’s almost time for Thanksgiving. Soon you’ll be forced to sit at a table with your family and have a conversation. How terrifying! My advice: skip all that and stream some movies. If your family complains, advise them to sit down and stream the movies along with you. It’s win-win! Also, bring beer.

You don’t have to force a conversation with movies; you just have to watch them. Isn’t that glorious? Of course, with the ever-growing list of streaming services out there, it can be hard to pick a specific film to watch for your own specific needs. But since I’m such a nice guy, and it is the season of giving, I went ahead and assembled a cornucopia of great films for you to stream in the next few days. There’s stuff(ing) here from David Lynch, Guillermo del Toro, Ryan Coogler, and more! We’ve got horror, family films, fantasy, romance, action – you name it! So get ready to binge on these films, but make sure you save room for leftovers. Here are the best movies streaming right now! So let’s get streaming.

Stranger Things 2 detail

The first season of Netflix’s Stranger Things ends with Chief Jim Hopper (David Harbour) leaving some Eggos in a box in the woods. The implication: he’s the only person who knows Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) survived her battle with the Demogorgon, and that’s going to factor into season 2 in a big way.

Those two characters have a unique relationship in the second season, and now the internet has spotted a Stranger Things 2 detail that deepens their connection even further.

free amazon streaming service

Update: Amazon has released the following (very specifically worded) statement: “We have no plans to create a free, ad-supported version of Prime Video.” Our original article continues below.

Despite showcasing its fair share of acclaimed shows, Amazon continues to lag behind Netflix in the war for streaming domination. But to be fair, everyone continues to lag behind Netflix in that particular race.

So how do you compete with the biggest name in streaming and stand out in an increasingly crowded landscape? By creating a free, ad-supported streaming service, of course. And according to a new report, that’s exactly what Amazon is setting out to do.

Mudbound theatrical release

Netflix has butted heads with theater owners ever since they started producing their own original films. A few of their films, like the Idris Elba drama Beasts of No Nation, have made it to limited theater screens in the past, and now another of their original movies, director Dee Rees‘ southern family epic Mudbound, will get a limited theatrical release next week. But will it also be ignored when the next batch of Oscar nominations roll around, or will this be enough to position the film as a possible awards contender?

Marvel netflix shows

If you enjoy watching Marvel shows on Netflix, you might want to sit down for this: in the future, new Marvel shows will air on Disney’s in-development streaming service, leaving Netflix in the dust. This is all part of a larger plan Disney has to compete with Netflix, which included their as-of-now dead deal to purchase a large chunk of 21st Century Fox.

Stop me if you’ve heard this one before: the world’s best video game player is recruited to fight in a battle to save the planet. That’s the plot of an increasing number of movies including The Last Starfighter, but now it’s also the plot of a new Hulu series called Future Man that hails from producers Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

the boys tv show

The Boys, an adaptation of Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson’s anti-hero comic series, has moved around in Hollywood so frequently that I’m surprised I haven’t seen a moving truck driving across town with its comic covers plastered on the side. But after years of circling the city, that truck has finally found a permanent parking spot: Amazon Studios has just picked up the series for an eight episode first season.
