“You”, “The Last of Us” and more
Each week, our TV and film experts list the top ten streaming choices for you to add to your queues. We don’t work solely on ratings or accumulated streaming clicks (although we’ve scoured streaming site charts), but on choices that are truly worth considering amidst the choppy sea of content. After all, there’s a lot to do out there, and your time is valuable.
TIE: 10. triangle of sadness (Neon Movie streaming on Hulu and elsewhere)
when you are absent The menu And The White Lotus Already, this film is getting a renewed burst of streaming popularity during the final crescendo of awards season. This movie is arguably even more scathing and brutal than the HBO show, as the lazy rich get in high spirits when nature hits a cruise ship and all hopes of avoiding explosive diarrhea are – sit down – off the table. Hey man, it happens, although I wouldn’t have minded if it happened to Greg and Cameron too The White Lotusto.
TIE: 10. Daisy Jones and the Six (Amazon Series)
Although Elvis Presley’s granddaughter Riley Keough plays the lead singer of a Fleetwood Mac-like band in this series, she admittedly made a quick bid by lying outright about her vocal abilities. Things have still worked out for her and the show since she landed the part, and Sam Claflin also takes on a major role, taking you out of your living room and behind the scenes of an honest rock ‘n’ roll adventure. This is nice counter-programming to what’s dominating the streaming space right now, and the show is dropping out weekly so you can fix it regularly.
9. MH370 (Netflix documentary)
This controversial film (apparently about Malaysia Airlines Flight 370) certainly reminds viewers that the label “documentary” doesn’t even come close to guaranteeing the basis. Social media became more than light annoyed that this project is essentially a collection of conspiracy theories about the still-unsolved mystery of why this plane disappeared without a trace. In other words, people click, but luckily they don’t believe everything they see.
8th. Bel Air (peacock series)
This dramatic take on the original 1990s sitcom is still going strong and proving (how PerryMason, also on this list) that a so-called “gritty” reboot can work. This series is standing on its own these days, edging further and further from trespassing on its predecessor’s territory (Will and Uncle Phil, for example, don’t trust each other), and star Jabari Banks seems to have quite a career in his future, no matter where this show goes finally goes.
7. The whale (A24 film streaming on VOD and Amazon)
Brendan Fraser is poised for a best actor Oscar, though our own Josh Kurp thinks another contender will take home that gong. However, this Darren Aronofsky project finally (and belatedly) allows Fraser to get serious drama as a morbidly obese father trying to make amends on multiple relationship fronts. Also, Fraser will be starring in Martin Scorsese soon Killer of the Flower Moonso it’s safe to say that unless it’s his choice to do so, Fraser will likely never leave Hollywood again.
6. PerryMason (HBO Series Streaming on HBO Max)
Nobody makes a great gritty looking TV lead like Matthew Rhys, so it’s a pleasure to have him back on our TV screens. As in Bel Air, this is one of those dark reboots where Rhys follows up on Perry’s tough early career days. This show doesn’t aim to compare itself to yesterday’s series starring Raymond Burr, and in fact it’s a whole different beast. Reinvention doesn’t have to be bad! In fact, it’s quite rewarding here. Everyone salutes Team Downey, who are secretly giving us tons of TV fun with Netflix sweet tooth as well as.
5. The Mandalorian (Disney+ series)
This week’s episode has taken a bit of a breather in terms of dominating the social media conversation (although one important question has arisen), but rest assured that Pedro Pascal is still helming two big shows this month, and it’s getting after giving the current seasons more of both. Also, no one could dream of pushing this show forward without more Grogu, aka “Baby Yoda.” Speaking of which, the adorable scene thief has his sights set on first-word territory, and our own Brian Grubb has a good idea of where that should lead.
4. poker face (peacock series)
You have to give it to Natasha Lyonne. She clamped them Orange is the new black Comeback role and rose to the top of prestige TV streaming. After two seasons of stellar Russian doll on Netflix, she and glass onion Cameo expert Rian Johnson can’t be stopped as he brings a Murder Of The Week show to Peacock. Natasha’s protagonist, Charlie, can’t help but know when people are full of shit, and that ability curse dominates the entire first season of this series. Not only will we see Joseph Gordon Levitt, Adrian Brody, Dascha Polanco, Benjamin Bratt, Lil Rel Howery and Chloe Sevigny in this first season, but the second round promises to be full of star power.
3. Selective outrage (Netflix stand-up special)
Undoubtedly the majority of people who wanted to see this special either did so live or caught up with it immediately afterwards considering Chris Rock finally took off his gloves and let the whole world know how he felt about the 2022 Oscar swatter von Will felt blacksmith. In the aftermath, Jada’s camp expressed displeasure and Will’s camp expressed embarrassment, and there are many lessons to be learned here, including the following: If you beat someone with a platform like Chris Rock’s standup capacity, you will definitely hear jokes at some point.
2: You (Netflix series)
Stalker Joe is finally getting a little more interesting again (man, I was really worried for a while when the season 4 finale came up and that doesn’t make this season’s cast any more interesting, although there is some hope for the future of the series. If you still haven’t caught up, it’s still worth finding out where Professor Jonathan Moore ends the season and Penn Badgley can’t possibly enjoy taking Joe home at night.
1. The last of us (HBO Series Streaming on HBO Max)
There’s likely no happy ending to this show, although brighter moments here and there have delighted fans of the video game, who have accomplished the unlikely feat of turning a video game adaptation into a juggernaut that people definitely have wanted to see live. years after the Hangover Movies, Craig Mazin really has a knack when it comes to fine-tuning HBO hits for the masses. The finale will contain a special treat for long-time fans of this apocalyptic wasteland saga, and in case you haven’t had the exquisite pleasure of watching Mazins Chernobylthen maybe now you have a way to get through the wait TLOU Season 2 a little more bearable.
