Martin Scorsese Silence streaming

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

Happy Holidays, I guess. As we wind down the clock on this garbage year, let us take time to appreciate the few good things in life: movies. Where would we be without movies? The answer, I think, is the grave. Or maybe I’m exaggerating. Either way, there’s something comforting about tuning out the world for two hours or so and engrossing yourself in a moving piece of entertainment (unless you’re one of those jerks who looks at their phone through an entire movie; stop that, kids).

If you’re looking for some streaming recommendations as the days grow shorter and winter arrives, look no further. I’ve assembled a hearty helping of films for you to sample. There’s a new Martin Scorsese masterpiece, a Shane Black comedy, a film about a ranting, raving president (no, not the current one), a suburban Western, and more! Here are the best movies streaming right now! So let’s get streaming.

When We're Together video

When Frozen was released in 2013, it became a smash hit on a scale that caught Walt Disney Animation by surprise. Part of the reason for its success was the movie’s soundtrack, which was full of catchy and memorable songs – chief among them being “Let It Go,” the movie’s most show-stopping musical number. It remains to be seen whether the upcoming Frozen 2 will produce a song that’s on that same level, but Olaf’s Frozen Adventure – Disney’s new holiday featurette that continues the Frozen story – certainly tries with “When We’re Together,” a new song that’s gunning for the top spot on your holiday playlists this season. Check out the official lyric video below.

Millie Bobby Brown - Morning Watch

(The Morning Watch is a recurring feature that highlights a handful of noteworthy videos from around the web. They could be video essays, fanmade productions, featurettes, short films, hilarious sketches, or just anything that has to do with our favorite movies and TV shows.)

In this edition, Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown delivers a rap recap of the Netflix show’s first season. Plus, a video essay runs through a history of the Japanese horror genre, and Kristen Bell performs a mash-up of Frozen and Metallica with DFoo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl.

You already know that Millie Bobby Brown is outstanding as Eleven on Stranger Things. But did you know that she’s also a pretty damn good rapper? Brown took the time to record a quick rap recap of the first season of Stranger Things on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, and she definitely has a penchant for hip-hop.

On the nerdier cinephile side of things, One Hundred Years of Cinema has created a new video essay taking a close look at the Japanese horror genre. They begin with the origins of Japanese terror from the likes of Kaidan and Kabuki in the Edo period and move on through the golden age of more recent hits that have been remade into American horror movies, such as Ringu and Dark Water. If you don’t know much about Japanese horror, this is a great history lesson.

Finally, as part of Jimmy Kimmel Live‘s Halloween fun, guest host Dave Grohl teamed up with guest Kristen Bell to do a rockin’ rendition of “Do You Want to Build a Snowman?” from the Frozen soundtrack. The tune takes a turn later when it becomes “Enter Snowman,” a riff on Metallica’s famous song “Enter Sandman.” And yes, that’s Dave Grohl with the beard and glasses, dressed up like a retired David Letterman for Halloween. I love that guy.

Veronica Mars

Veronica Mars, the cult teen mystery series that ran for 3 seasons on UPN and the CW and inspired a follow-up film, may not be over and done with yet. In a recent chat, stars Kristen Bell and Ryan Hansen both confirmed they’re definitely down for even more Mars, and are willing to make it happen, no matter what.

A Bad Moms Christmas Trailer

Hot on the heels of yesterday’s new trailer for Daddy’s Home 2, which sees parents visiting their grown up kids for the holidays to silly comedic results, this year’s other Christmas comedy has debuted a trailer, but with much raunchier laughs.

A Bad Moms Christmas is the follow-up to the R-rated comedy Bad Moms from last year. After the movie raked in $113.2 million on a budget of just $20 million, STX Entertainment fast-tracked a sequel and added some holiday spice. This time, Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell and Kathryn Hahn have to contend with the arrival of Christine Baranski, Cheryl Hines and Susan Sarandon as their respective mothers.

Who said that only men were allowed to star in raunchy comedies that hit big at the box office and receive sequels faster than you can blink? A Bad Moms Christmas, the follow-up to the 2016 hit Bad Moms, arrives later this year and as the title implies, Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell, and Kathryn Hahn are back and are prepared to behave badly during the most wonderful time of the year.

You can watch the first A Bad Moms Christmas trailer below, but be forewarned: this is the red band trailer and foul language, shouted by both adults and children, is on full display. If you’re at work, plug in some headphones.

CHiPs Trailer - Michael Pena and Dax Shepard

The more we see TV shows like Baywatch and CHIPs turned into movies, the more realization sets in that the success of 21 Jump Street as a quality comedy was a small miracle.

While Baywatch doesn’t look bad, it just seems to be trying too hard to have the same blend of R-rated comedy and action that directing duo Phil Lord and Chris Miller delivered wonderfully with Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill. And now we have the first CHIPs trailer, revealing Dax Shepard (who also directs the comedy) and Michael Peña as unlikely partners in the California Highway Patrol. And if Baywatch is trying to be 21 Jump Street, than CHIPs is trying even harder to be its cool PG-13 cousin.

Bad Moms Sequel

After Bad Moms took ins over $180 worldwide earlier this year at the box office, on a budget of just $20 million, STX Entertainment made the decision to quickly keep the franchise alive with a spin-off focusing on the other parents. Bad Dads was set for release on July 14, 2017, and it felt like an odd way to capitalize on the success of the film, especially without any of the original cast or writers/directors Jon Lucas & Scott Moore involved. But now Bad Moms is getting a sequel of its own too.

A couple of weeks ago, Tom Hanks appeared on Ellen where he and host Ellen DeGeneres performed a scene imagining what it would be like if Woody from Toy Story met Dory from Finding Nemo.
