Best new movies to stream on Netflix, Hulu, Prime Video, HBO, and more

February’s midpoint might seem like a very gloomy period. The days are still short, the weather is the worst of the year, and there aren’t a lot of things to do. Why not host a movie night instead? When it comes to providing new material in February, even the main streaming services are a little behind. Nevertheless, that doesn’t mean there isn’t anything worth your time. This list of the top new movies to stream on Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, HBO, and other streaming services is updated regularly as new titles are added.

Also, we offer guides for the top Netflix movies, Hulu movies, Amazon Prime Video movies, and HBO movies.

After the holidays, we are eager to get back into the swing of things and are prepared to share with you the greatest movies that are now streaming on Netflix, HBO Max, Amazon Video, Shudder, and Hulu. This month’s selections from our list include the 1981 cult classic horror movie Possession with Sam Neill and Isabelle Adjani, the Leonardo DiCaprio-starring The Aviator from 2004, the 1995 cyberpunk thriller Strange Days from Kathryn Bigelow, and more. With everything new on all the platforms this month, these are the shows to watch:


Andrzej Uawski isn’t a name that elicits ecstatic recognition in the United States outside of the most fervent of cinephile circles. As several of his early films were either extensively regulated, outlawed, or in one case, virtually destroyed upon release, Uawski, known for his rebellious form of arthouse filmmaking, had his career blocked by Communist authorities in his native Poland. Also, the fact that the handful of his movies that were distributed in the United States is no longer in print, though this situation seems to be about to change, doesn’t help.

If you are familiar with the name Uawski, it is probably because of his psychological horror picture Possession from 1981. This movie has gained cult status among fans of the genre over the years due to its being hard to get on physical media, let alone to watch online. For everyone’s benefit, that’s no longer the case as Shudder has finally made Possession streamable.

Sam Neill, from Jurassic Park, plays Mark, a Soviet agent who comes home to discover that his wife, Anna (Isabelle Adjani), has left him and requests a divorce in uawski’s picture, which is set in Cold War-era West Berlin. Mark is suspicious and has Anna being followed when she won’t reveal why she hasn’t left him for someone else. The horrible secret he ultimately learns about is beyond his comprehension, and it threatens to destroy not just their tiny family but also their sanity by reawakening a long-dormant wellspring of worry, hatred, and despair between the two.

Possession blurs the line between the autobiographical and the phantasmagorical, with hysterical performances by Neill and Adjani that alternate between disturbing, comical, and unnervingly sympathetic. It was inspired by uawski’s turbulent divorce in 1976 and his subsequent struggles with suicidal ideation. Possession is a crucial must-see for any serious horror lover, serving as inspiration for everything from Ari Aster’s Midsommar to the 2016 music video for Massive Attack’s “Voodoo in My Blood.” Toussaint Egan

Dwight “The General” Manfredi, the capo of the New York Mafia, is banished by his boss to Tulsa, Oklahoma, after serving 25 years in jail. Realizing that his mob family might not be acting in his best interests, Dwight carefully assembles a team.


One of the better films to appear on Netflix this month is Martin Scorsese’s 2004 biopic about the life of eccentric aviation magnate Howard Hughes. Because of this, we selected it as this week’s editor’s selection for the platform. Leonardo DiCaprio has a mesmerizing portrayal as Hughes, balancing the character’s undiagnosed obsessive-compulsive condition and hypochondria with his famed public image for boldness and outlandish financial judgments. In terms of the scope of its narrative and the fine craftsmanship shown in its regal production, it is a breathtaking movie. —TE



Gareth Evans’ 2014 follow-up to the blockbuster (and we do mean smash) hit The Raid delivers a powerful punch as well (and some hammers). Rama (Iko Uwais, repeating his starring role) is deployed undercover to uncover corruption in Jakarta’s police in this sequel to the previous film. This entails getting himself imprisoned, surviving a jail riot, and developing relationships with underworld figures in Jakarta. Fans of The Raid should also watch the ante-upping sequel, which is packed with high-octane action sequences, tonnes of gore, and jaw-dropping demonstrations of the Indonesian martial art pencak silat. — Peter Volk

Fruitvale Station (Hulu)

Jordan), a 22-year-old black man who earlier served time in San Quentin, is now working hard to lead a moral life and support his fiancée (Melonie Diaz) and little daughter (Ariana Neal).

For the Love of Kitchens: Season 2 (HBO)

Wonder Woman, also known as Princess Diana of Themyscira, is a superhero appearing in DC Comics. Her tale may be familiar to you. But do you know where the demigoddess with the leotard, tiara, and golden lasso came from in real life? The 2017 biographical drama by Angela Robinson tells the life story of William Moulton Marston (Luke Evans), the psychologist-turned-comic author who created Wonder Woman. The character’s earliest adventures and depictions were inspired by Marston’s polyamorous relationship with his wife Elizabeth (Rebecca Hall) and his mistress Olive (Bella Heathcote). Not only does Professor Marston and Wonder Woman describe an astonishing true event, but it also depicts a dedicated polyamorous relationship and the BDSM community as a whole compassionately and sympathetically. After seeing this, you’ll never think about Wonder Woman in the same way again, and I mean that as high praise. —TE
