This week marks the launch of Paramount+, yet another streaming service in an era that’s already jam-packed with them. But that’s not entirely fair: Paramount+ is just CBS All Access with a new coat of paint, and that service has been around for some time now.
To celebrate (well, at least acknowledge) the existence of a “new” streaming platform, we’ve scoured the service’s library and put together a list of 10 things to watch. You probably already know that you can mainline episodes of Star Trek, the Godfather trilogy, and films like Chinatown and Clue there, but here, in alphabetical order, are some film and television titles that are available but have not been quite as highly publicized.

Last week, the fantastic adaptation of Me and Earl an the Dying Girl hit theaters in a limited run, and this week the lively Dope also arrives on the big screen. Both are spectacular coming of age tales from two very different sides of the spectrum, but they both have wonderful young characters, engaging relationships, and are special in their own ways.
And with these two magnificent coming of age movies hitting the big screen recently, we thought it was a good time to look back at some of the great films to come out of this subgenre. But since everyone has gushed over films like Stand by Me, The Breakfast Club and Say Anything for years, I decided to put a more modern focus on coming of age films by counting down my picks for the Top 25 Best Coming of Age Movies of the Past 25 Years. That means you won’t find anything on here from before 1990. Do your favorite movies make the cut?
Check out my list of the Top 25 Best Coming of Age Films of the Past 25 Years after the jump! Read More »
/Film reader Cornelis van Dijkhuizen jr. has edited together a montage titled “The Films of Sofia Coppola.” It’s apparently the first of a series in 12 video compilations which Cornelis plans to release over the coming this year. I especially love how the video edits together some of Coppola’s signature shots from the various films. Watch the video now embedded after the jump.
