Best Movies Streaming March 2018

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

The year ticks on. February comes to a close, and March begins. I can think of no better way to kick-off a brand new month than a list of great movies to stream right now (but that may be because I have a limited imagination, who knows). As always, I’ve scoured the far corners of the streaming world to bring you back these entertaining riches.

In this latest edition of Now Stream This, we have a surprisingly funny history lesson from Steven Spielberg, a horror classic that invented an entirely new genre, a Martin Scorsese crime epic, a ’70s mystery movie starring Gene Hackman, a phenomenal new miniseries from Hulu, Steven Soderbergh’s return from retirement, a ’90s thriller, and more!

These are the best movies streaming right now (and a little TV as well). Let’s get streaming.
