We’re close to the end of 2017, and as we rush to catch up on some of the awards season contenders in order to finalize our lists of the Top 10 Movies of 2017 (coming next week), it’s time to take a look back at the year in cinema.
Before we ever see a trailer for a movie, we’ll often see a teaser poster that tries to set the stage for what’s to come on the big screen. A majority of official movie posters from studios are boring, familiar and don’t do much to get people excited. But every year, there are at least a couple dozen movie posters that deserve recognition. So without further adieu, here are the 20 Best Movie Posters of 2017. Read More »
(In The Rank Off, Rob Hunter and Matt Donato come together to settle once and for all who is better at ranking movies on the internet. Hunter, the wily veteran with years of movie blogging under his belt. Donato, an up-and-coming youngster poised to snatch notoriety from the “seasoned” journeyman. Who wins this round? You decide.)
For our inaugural The Rank Off topic, we’ll be ranking our favorite Christmas Horror films. What’s better than corrupting holiday innocence and yuletide cheer with a little murder, bloodshed and gore? Gingerbread houses splattered with spilled guts and what have you. Christmas is just too easy – and enjoyable – a target. Who’s ready for a little holiday genre stack-up?

(Welcome to Now Stream This, a column dedicated to the best movies streaming on Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, and every other streaming service out there.)
I don’t want to alarm you, but I have some shocking news: it’s currently the holiday season. Yes, I can’t believe it either, but here we are. The utterly bonkers year that was 2017 is almost gone, but before it goes we’ll have to muddle through the holiday season somehow. The holidays can be a stressful time for some people: there’s the hassle of finding the perfect gift for loved ones, mixed with lousy weather, congested traffic and the existential dread of the looming new year. My advice? Relieve some of that stress with movies. After all, movies are the reason for the season (please don’t correct me on this, I’m sure this is correct).
In the spirit of giving, I’ve compiled a list of Christmas movies for you to stream as we run out the clock on 2017. These aren’t your traditional Christmas movies, though. The films compiled here are primarily what I’d like to call alternative Christmas movies. In other words, a lot of these are Christmas movies for people who don’t like Christmas movies. But don’t worry, I made sure to throw in one or two traditional tales of holiday cheer just in case.
Here are the best Christmas movies streaming right now! Let’s get streaming.

2017 has been an exceptional year for horror, with It tearing up the box office, Get Out igniting a cultural conversation, and Raw ruling the arthouse scene like the cannibalistic powerhouse that it is. But there’s another horror movie on the horizon that’s going to get people talking. And arguing.
I saw Better Watch Out at Fantastic Fest last year, back when it was titled Safe Neighborhood, and hated it. Loathed it. Couldn’t stand it. When I left the theater, I learned that I was not alone. But I also learned that many people adored it and spoke to fest-goers who were head-over-heels in love with this gonzo horror comedy and just couldn’t believe that I didn’t like it.
And now the Better Watch Out trailer is here to spark the conversation for a much wider audience.
