The Best Movies On Starz Right Now

Tom Holland and Jake Gyllenhaal in Spider-man: Far From Home

Once upon a time, Netflix and other streaming services didn’t exist. If you wanted to watch a blockbuster movie, then you either had to wait for a heavily edited version (if it was an R-rated film or had a few “bad words.”) to appear on basic cable, or you had to purchase a premium cable package that included channels like HBO or Starz. It was a scary time. Because all these streaming services now exist, people may have forgotten that Starz and other premium channels still operate. These channels offer a lot of great content even before they reach Netflix or Hulu. There are so many exciting movies streaming on Starz.

To keep you away from the endless black hole of movie browsing, here is a list of some of the popular, entertaining, and award winning movies available to stream on Starz.
