The best movies are a breed apart – exceedingly rare, and born of compelling human stories well told. A superb drama has the power to change how we see the world, while a first-rate comedy can provide sublime entertainment that nourishes both brain and spirit.
Today, too many exceptional films are hiding in plain sight, obscured by big commercial titles that may divert us in the moment, but offer little lasting impact, insight or enjoyment. And with today’s technology, there’s more of this stimuli thrown at us than ever before.
We’re here to ease the process — to help you cut through the clutter, and put outstanding titles right at your fingertips. You will never again feel the frustration of clicking through an endless series of mediocre titles on Netflix, Amazon or Apple TV. We bring you quality movies quickly! New or old, domestic or foreign, narrative or documentary, we only pick the BEST.
Our goal is to make it fun, fast and easy to find the next film you’ll love.
We offer THREE WAYS to find a great movie:
