(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.

After debuting at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, the first trailer for the quirky indie comedy Brigsby Bear has arrived, and it’s perfectly weird. Just like the movie.
Just in case the marketing campaign somehow manages to keep certain details about the narrative under wraps, we’ll leave certain story points below the trailer, since they don’t reveal any key pieces of information just yet. So if you want to go into this movie completely blind, don’t read anything below the Brigsby Bear trailer embed. You’ve been warned! Read More »
Homeland showrunner Alex Gansa has discussed some of the changes we should expect from season six of the acclaimed drama. Gansa is scaling back the depiction of terrorism, and the upcoming season “exists in a much more psychological way.” Maybe playing a role in the more psychological approach is how the show will handle a question involving, Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes), her daughter Frannie, and Nick Brody (Damien Lewis).
Below, learn some Homeland season six story details (spoilers ahead).

There are bound to be a lot of Americans feeling nervous in the run-up to the next presidential inauguration on January 20. Fortunately, Showtime is here to help get your mind off things… with a series about a bunch of really terrible things that happen in the run-up to a presidential inauguration. Okay, on second thought, maybe Homeland is not your best bet for escapist fantasy.
Season 6 brings Claire Danes‘ Carrie Mathison back to home soil, where she’s working for a foundation that provides aids to Muslims in the U.S. She gets caught up in the danger surrounding the transfer of power for the next president (Elizabeth Marvel), who’s calling for the “wholesale reform of the CIA.” Which, of course, means that Saul (Mandy Patinkin) and Dar Adal (F. Murray Abraham) are not exactly fans of hers. Watch the Homeland season 6 trailer below. Read More »

Put the words “Carrie,” “New York City,” and “premium cable” side by side, and you’ll probably assume I’m about to go into a discussion of Sex and the City.

Showtime has released a new Homeland season 6 teaser trailer, which sends Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes) to Brooklyn where she’s working for a foundation that helps American Muslims. But of course she gets caught up in espionage and intrigue again. Watch the Homeland season 6 teaser trailer below. Read More »

There’s good news and bad news today for fans of Homeland. First, the happy stuff: Showtime has gone ahead and renewed the hit drama for two more seasons. That’s in addition to the upcoming sixth seasons, which means viewers have a whopping three more seasons of Carrie’s misadventures to look forward to. But it’ll be a while before we actually get to them, because the unhappy news is that Homeland won’t return until 2017. Read More »

The first full-length trailer for Homeland Season 5 begins with Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes) in a good place. She’s got a cushy private job in Berlin, she’s dating a handsome new fellow, and she finally seems to have taken to motherhood. Most importantly, she’s left behind the CIA, the source of her greatest triumphs and tribulations over the years.
… Or so she thought. This is still Homeland we’re talking about, after all. It’s not long before Carrie gets sucked back into a web of international intrigue involving shady government organizations, hackers, black-ops agents, and a rather pissed off Saul Berenson (Mandy Patinkin).

Carrie Mathison is back, whether she likes it or not. The first Homeland Season 5 teaser trailer has her out of the CIA, and working for a philanthropist in Berlin. But judging by all the explosions, kidnappings, and stern lectures in the trailer, it seems leaving the past behind may be easier said than done for our unstable heroine (played by Claire Danes).
