Use it to compare your tastes—or to get an idea of what you should binge next. You may find a new favorite to view tonight. 

Hawkeye (Disney+)

The Avenging Archer finally gets his MCU due in a show that is all about his delayed return home for Christmas. Mostly because the other Hawkeye-to-be, Kate Bishop, enters his life and turns it topsy-turvy when she finds his old, preferably forgotten Ronin costume. 

Yellowstone (Peacock, Paramount Network)

The fourth season of the show about the violent Dutton family, headed by patriarch Kevin Costner, just started, so people are playing catchup on the previous years of backstabbing and violence that protects their giant Montana ranch. 

The Wheel of Time (Amazon Prime Video)

Amazon steps up to try and out-game Game of Thrones and the other contenders for that, uh, throne, with a sweeping adaption of Robert Jordan’s epic. It stars Rosamund Pike as Moiraine, as she searches for the person who is actually the dragon reincarnated to save the world… or destroy it. 

Planes, Trains and Automobiles (AMC, fuboTV, Philo)

Arguably the best holiday movie next to Die Hard and National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation, this one looks at the trials of Neal Page (Steve Martin) as he tries to get home for thanksgiving while dogged by shower-ring salesman Del Griffith. Those aren’t pillows!

Red Notice (Netflix)

Red Notice is being called Netflix’s biggest original film ever…at least budget-wise ($200 million). And it had Netflix’s biggest opening day viewership, supposedly. Three major Hollywood stars, playing an FBI agent (Dwayne Johnson) forced to work with an annoying motor-mouth art thief (Ryan Reynolds, aka Deadpool without the mask on) to defeat a better thief (Gal Godot), step up and bring their all to the action-laden 2 hours that won’t make you think much.

tick, tick…BOOM! (Netflix)

See the life of Broadway composer Jonathan Larson (played by Andrew Garfield) as the musical it should have been, as directed by Hamilton’s Lin-Manuel Miranda. SPOILERS: In real life and in the movie, Larson dies before he can find his pre-age-30 success from the musical Rent

Cowboy Bebop (Netflix)

The 20+-year-old anime is back in full live-action, starring John Cho as Spike “Fearless” Spiegel, one of the cowboy bounty hunters of the spaceship Bebop, out there in the future chasing down criminals with style. 

Yellowjackets (Showtime, Showtime Anywhere, Roku Channel, fuboTV, PlutoTV)

Twenty-five years after the plane crash that stranded a girls soccer team in the wilderness where they quickly went full Lord of the Flies, that group of women is still trying to put the pieces together. This one stars Melanie Lynsky, Juliette Lewis, and Christina Ricci among other stand-outs. 

King Richard (HBO Max)

Will Smith’s latest attempt at Oscar bait isn’t a tale really about the tennis phenoms called the Williams sisters, but actually, more about their hard-as-nails father Richard, who coached the two kids to the biggest champions the sport has ever seen. 

Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings (Disney+)

Marvel master of kung-fu arrives in this tale, with major updates to the comic character to bring him in line with the MCU, including having his father run the organization that once forced Tony Stark to build some armor. Simu Liu charmingly leads the cast on the adventure.
