Our Top-Rated Video-Streaming Services

Visit “The Best Video Streaming Services for 2023” for our full list.

1. Mr. & Mrs. Smith (Prime Video)

The titular married spies in this series version of the movie do not start as enemies. They’re unknowns to each other until their agency has them pose as a married couple. The two find themselves falling in love for real while their work spins out of control. Another difference from the original is the lack of behind-the-scenes tabloid drama, with the pair played by Atlanta’s Donald Glover and Pen15’s Maya Erskine.

2. The Holdovers (Peacock)

When director Alexander Payne teams up with actor Paul Giamatti, it’s always worth paying attention. After all, they made Sideways. This time, ol’ Pig Vomit plays a 1970s prep school teacher stuck on campus over the winter holidays with his least favorite student and the head cook.

3. Killers of the Flower Moon (Apple TV+)

Killers of the Flower Moon has racked up several Oscar nominations. If you haven’t seen it in theaters or paid to watch it stream, now’s your chance to catch it “free” (if you pay for Apple TV+), which is probably the best place to do it since the film is just under three hours. 

4. Past Lives (Paramount+ with Showtime)

Two childhood friends lose touch, connect, lose touch again, and reconnect in this beautiful, Oscar-nominated film directed by Celine Strong and starring Greta Lee. It’s melancholy and hopeful and will have you pondering the concept of in-yun (the idea that your present-day interactions are influenced by those in the lives you’ve lived before) in your own life.

5. True Detective (Max)

Once considered a gem in the HBO firmament (thanks mostly to Matthew McConaughey in the first season), this anthology show went down the tubes. But there’s been a resurgence of interest with the fourth season, thanks in part to its new star, Jodie Foster.

6. Groundhog Day (Philo, AMC)

It was Groundhog Day. Again. In celebration of it, the country tuned in to see what a pampered Pennsylvanian whistle pig thinks of the future weather and to watch this classic Bill Murray vehicle that made the day synonymous with never-ending time loops.

7. Masters of the Air (Apple TV+)

Get ready, history buffs. Masters of the Air basically rounds out a dramatic trilogy from Steven Spielberg, Tom Hanks, and Gary Goetzman after Band of Brothers and The Pacific. This nine-episode series follows the 100th Bomb Group of the pre-Air Force Army Air Corps. (As The Wrap notes, Spielberg’s father served in the Army Air Corps.) It stars Austin Butler, who (hopefully) dropped the Elvis accent.

8. Feud: Capote vs. The Swans (Hulu)

If you don’t want to end up as material, don’t be friends with a writer. Despite this dictum, several socialites attached themselves to Truman Capote and ended up regretting it as they found themselves laid bare on the pages of Esquire, the subjects of a novel excerpt, “La Côte Basque 1965.” Now the group is played by a coterie of famous actresses—Naomi Watts as Babe Paley, Diane Lane as Slim Keith, Chloë Sevigny as C.Z. Guest, and Calista Flockhart as Lee Radziwill—in this Ryan Murphy limited series. Tom Hollander (not Tom Holland) plays Truman Capote.

9. Saltburn (Prime Video)

Director Emerald Fennell (the auteur behind Promising Young Woman) returns with this decadent look at what happens when a nebbishy college student befriends a rich guy who takes him home to his family estate for a summer of debauchery and family drama.

10. Griselda (Netflix)

Modern Family‘s Sofia Vergara is flexing her drama chops in this Netflix series about Colombian drug lord Griselda Blanco. The family of the real-life Griselda doesn’t love the series, but it’s from the team that produced Narcos, so it has potential.
