What are some good movies that you'd recommend that are available for streaming, currently?

Asked by jca2 (16389points) December 28th, 2020

I saw “Hillbilly Elegy.” I liked it.

I heard “Wonder Woman” is not good and I’m not into superhero stuff anyway.

Today, I have no plans and maybe will find time to stream something. I want to, in the near future, watch the current seasons of “Ozark” and “The Crown” after I finish “Mad Men.” For today, I’m just looking for a movie, not a series.

Any recommendations from my fellow Jellies?

While technically a tv show, I still need to recommend Fargo (the tv show). There are 4 seasons and you can stream them on Hulu. You can get a free month trial of Hulu (if you don’t currently have it) and binge-watch the whole series. It’s so good.

Is Greenland any good? Or is it a waste of time?

“Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom” was excellent. On Netflix.

Check out “Mank” if you’re in the mood for something black and white. I enjoyed it.

“The Trial of the Chicago 7” is good too, though I am a Sorkin fan.

Bridgerton on Netflix is interesting. A new take on old English aristocracy with a diverse cast.
The Mandalorian or Mulan on Disney are both good.

WW84 stink, stank, stunk. And I’m a huge WW fan.

Interiors by Woody Allen is in Amazon Prime.

For rent in Amazon, the Japanese film Departures. And another much older film from Europe, Babette’s Feast.

I have not seen it yet, but I hear good things about The Lighthouse and it is next on my list.

“Two lighthouse keepers (Robert Pattinson and Willem Dafoe) fight each other for survival and sanity on a remote and mysterious New England island in the 1890s. From Robert Eggers, the visionary filmmaker behind horror masterpiece ‘The Witch’.
Directors Robert Eggers”

Cant really say @jca2 I usually settle for an old John Wayne shoot ‘em up, readily available for free, or a small charge, on You Tube. Wall, don’t know much about this… Streaming Pilgrim, uh huh…

I don’t have movie recommendations off of the top of my head, but I do have some series suggestions.

We are watching the series Virgin River. It’s sort of like a Lifetime series, but my husband likes it too.

BodyGuard was a mini-Series, I think it was 6 episodes, it was good.

I loved the series Counterpart when it was on. I don’t know if it’s streaming now? It was originally on Starz. Every detail counts. It’s a little violent, especially the first episodes, so don’t let the first episode deter you. I was upset they didn’t sign it for another season.

Also, on the Japanese channel, NHK, I really like the show Trails to Oishii Tokyo. They take a different food every episode and show how it’s grown and how it’s prepared in different dishes. My favorite is the time with the farmers. They care so much about what they produce. Your daughter might enjoy it too.

@jca2 So – what did you watch?

I searched on Netflix and found a movie from 2018 called “The Land of Steady Habits” with Ben Mendelsohn and Edie Falco. It’s about a couple trying to restart their lives after their breakup. He’s single now, making bad choices, Edie is in a relationship, the adult son is trying to find his way. It takes place in CT, which, I found out when googling reviews, is known as the “land of steady habits.”

Then I watched a few episodes of Jerry Seinfeld “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee” (always enjoyable, each episode being only around 20 minutes long, each featuring a classic car and a comedian, and a drive and chat).

After that, I saw the first 2 of 4 episodes of the Netflix documentary about Dominique Strauss-Kahn and the accusation and scandal about his sexual assault. Very interesting. I fell asleep on the 3rd episode but look forward to watching the last 2 tonight.

I guess that would depend on what you call a good movie. According to my emails, Disney+ has every Star Wars movie that has ever been shown available for binge watching in order or as is your personal preference. I was never a big Star Wars fan, but many friends were excited to hear this news; so I though I’d pass it along
