(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.

The holidays are all about joy and togetherness and goodwill toward man and all of that, but sometimes you need a break from all that sweetness. Sometimes, you need a nasty little thriller like Body to cut through all that holiday cheer.
Directed by Dan Berk and Robert Olsen, Body follows three college students (Helen Rogers, Alexandra Turshen, and Lauren Molina) who sneak into an empty mansion to party on Christmas Eve. Their good times sour when a freak accident occurs, leaving them with a dead body that needs to be dealt with. We’re happy to help make your Yuletide a little bit sicker today with an exclusive clip from Body, which you can watch after the jump. Read More »

The holiday movie season is typically defined by family-friendly fare, stuff that you and mom and dad and grandma and grandpa and your cousins and nephews and nieces can go enjoy together. But what about the lonely cynics who spend the season alone and would like to let some darkness into their hearts every December?
Don’t worry. Hollywood has got you covered. This year’s holiday counter-programming looks to be Body, the newest release from the folks at Oscilloscope, and it looks like the kind of anti-Christmas thriller that will help keep your dark, shrunken heart at appropriate Grinch levels. Don’t let the greeting card companies win!
Watch the Body trailer after the jump.
