Before we begin this tour of amazing entertainment, here's a small disclaimer: at the time of writing, these movies are available on Foxtel Now. That said, the ol' Fox tail is a changeable beast; content can cycle on and off the service with little to no warning at all. You'll also find that majority of these films are also available on Foxtel's other streaming service BINGE.
We keep this list updated on a monthly basis, but if you spot something that sounds like your deal today, dive into the stream sooner rather than later. And now, without further ado, here's the current cream of the crop.
1. Zack Snyder's Justice League
Following a relentless social media campaign, DC fans finally got what they wanted – the movie Justice League as Zack Snyder intended it. While the plot is the same as in the 2017 original, everything in this version is different – from the costumes to the music to the action sequences. The movie is also four hours long, so there's plenty of bonus content.
After Superman's great sacrifice, Batman is convinced that the world will face a big threat in the near future. With the help of Wonder Woman, he reaches out to other individuals with special abilities, hoping they can form an alliance to defend humanity. Enter Cyborg, Aquaman and The Flash. If you're a DC fan, this movie will be everything you've ever wished for.
2. Let Them All Talk
Let Them All Talk stars Meryl Streep as a famous author who goes on a cruise trip with her friends and nephew. She's struggling to find happiness, but must also come to terms with her troubled past.
Directed by Steven Soderbergh, the movie has a lot going on, but that's not a bad thing. It has a unique setting, an engaging story and a tremendous cast. All in all, it's a journey worth taking.
3. Small Axe
An anthology film series created and directed by Steve McQueen, Small Axe is comprised of five films: Mangrove, Lovers Rock, Red, White and Blue, Alex Wheatle and Education. Each of them tackles themes that touch on the lives of West Indian immigrants in London from the 1960s to the 1980s. Each of them is stunning.
While you can watch them all in one sitting if you're up for a lengthy marathon, we recommend spreading them out. You might need some time to properly digest their brilliance.
Sorry, we've found no buying or renting options for this title.
A biographical drama, Judy is based the life of actress Judy Garland. The movie is mostly set thirty years after Garland starred in The Wizard of Oz, as she arrives in London to perform sold-out shows at the Talk of the Town nightclub. We also get flashbacks to Garland's teen years and previous endeavours.
Renée Zellweger gives a tremendous performance in the lead role – which won her the Academy Award for Best Actress. More than that, Judy is a moving tribute to a beloved international icon, so you should definitely tune in if you're a Garland fan.
5. Sorry We Missed You
Ricky and his family have been struggling with debt for years when things seem to be turning around thanks to a shiny new van that gives him the chance to run a franchise as a self-employed delivery driver. However, he and his wife end up trapped in a vicious circle and pulled in different directions, which takes a toll on their loved ones.
Heartbreaking but necessary, Sorry We Missed You is a devastating portrayal of the strain getting out of debt puts on a family, but also of how society's obsession with convenience comes at a great cost. Thought-provoking, to say the least.
6. A Hidden Life
Written and directed by Terrence Malick, A Hidden Life is a visually absorbing film about Austrian farmer Franz Jägerstätter, a real-life figure who faced the threat of execution for refusing to fight for the Nazis during World War II.
A Hidden Life is moving and beautifully acted, with Malick once again taking viewers on a captivating spiritual journey. It may test your patience every now and then, but it's definitely worth it. By the time the end credits roll, you'll be mesmerized.
7. The Hunt
Twelve strangers wake up in a clearing. They don't know where they are or how they got there. They don't know they've been chosen for a very specific purpose: ruthless elitists plan on hunting them for sport. However, their master plan is about to be derailed when one of the hunted turns the tables on her pursuers.
A darkly funny action thriller, The Hunt is violent and satirical, intriguing and bold. It might not be everyone's cup of tea – but if dark humour and social commentary are your jam, we recommend you watch it ASAP.
Based on Jane Austen's 1815 novel of the same name, Emma follows the antics of a young woman living in Regency-era England. She's well-meaning but selfish and often meddles in the love lives of her friends.
Anya Taylor-Joy is a joy to watch in the lead role, managing to perfectly capture the snobbery of Austen's character. We're also happy to report that the movie does the source material justice – whether you're familiar with the novel or not, you'll have a fun time if you tune in.
9. Sonic the Hedgehog
After discovering a small, blue and very fast hedgehog, a small-town police officer must help him defeat an evil genius set on achieving world domination by taking advantage of the hedgehog's abilities.
A light and fun escape, Sonic the Hedgehog doesn't take itself too seriously, which makes it even more enjoyable than you might expect. Gather everyone around the television – this is a family-friendly movie that will make you laugh out loud.
10. The Lighthouse
This unsettling movie follows two lighthouse keepers as they try to maintain their sanity while living on a remote and mysterious New England island in the 1890s. As they are cut off from the outside world and their rations start to run out, their mental state begins to deteriorate.
Robert Pattinson and Willem Dafoe offer excellent performances and the entire movie is a fascinating mix of horror and comedy. Filmed in black and white, The Lighthouse doesn't disappoint – especially if you're a fan of all things creepy.
11. A Beautiful Day in the Neighbourhood
When tasked with writing an article about kind-hearted television presenter Fred Rogers, journalist Lloyd Vogel is cynical, to say the least. Yet, as he gets to know Rogers, the two strike an unlikely friendship.
Based on true events, A Beautiful Day in the Neighbourhood is a heartwarming and well-acted film about the importance of kindness and acceptance. Even if it doesn't end up inspiring you to become a better version of yourself, it's the perfect movie to stream when you need a little pick-me-up.
12. Ford v Ferrari
Ford v Ferrari is based on the remarkable true story of the visionary American car designer Carroll Shelby and the fearless British-born driver Ken Miles. Tune in to follow the two as they battle corporate interference and the laws of physics to build a revolutionary race car for Ford; one that might just be able to defeat Ferrari at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1966.
A story of ambition and perseverance, the movie packs everything you'd expect from a racing flick, including exciting action. However, Ford v Ferrari is much more than that thanks to clever writing and nuanced performances. You'll be in for a wild ride.
13. Stephen King's Doctor Sleep
Set years after the events of The Shining, Doctor Sleep follows a now-adult Dan Torrance, who is struggling with alcoholism and remains traumatised by the sinister events that occurred at the Overlook Hotel when he was a child. However, he must protect a young girl with similar powers from a cult known as The True Knot, who feed off the gifts of innocents to become immortal.
Engrossing and unsettling, the movie is a treat for Stephen King fans and horror enthusiasts in general. Deeply atmospheric, it will keep viewers glued to the screen.
14. Ready or Not
A thriller/horror not recommended for the faint of heart, Ready or Not follows Grace, who couldn't be happier after she marries the man of her dreams at his family's luxurious estate. There's just one catch – she is forced to hide from midnight until dawn while her new in-laws hunt her down with guns, crossbows and other weapons. Hey, every family has its own traditions!
Darkly funny and fast-paced, the movie is smarter than you average horror flick, while also benefiting from a strong performance from Samara Weaving. Genre fans should be delighted, and then some.
Forever alone, mentally troubled Arthur Fleck longs for connection as he walks the streets of Gotham City. A clown-for-hire by day, he aspires to be a stand-up comic at night... but finds the joke always seems to be on him. When an act of violence sends him on a dangerous path, he soon embraces his alter ego: the Joker.
A chilling origin story, Joker shows us Joaquin Phoenix at his best and gives the audience plenty to think about. Dark and violent, it's the kind of comic book movie you won't be able to stop talking about.
16. It Chapter Two
Defeated by members of the Losers' Club, the evil clown Pennywise returns 27 years later to once again terrorize the town of Derry. Now adults, the childhood friends have long since gone their separate ways, but reunite in order to hopefully destroy the shape-shifting entity once and for all.
Just as creepy as its predecessor, this perfectly-cast sequel will delight horror fans, offering enough thrills to keep viewers on the edge of the seat. We don't recommend watching it alone.
17. Dora And The Lost City Of Gold
A live action adaptation of Nickelodeon's television series Dora the Explorer, this entertaining movie follows Dora, her friends and her monkey as they embark on a memorable adventure to rescue Dora's missing parents and solve the mystery of a fabled city of gold.
Dora And The Lost City Of Gold is a family-friendly movie that retains the joyous spirit of the source material, with a great performance from Isabela Merced in the lead role. It's fun for children and adults alike, making it a great choice to stream with the little ones.
18. Bad Education
Bad Education revolves around the beloved superintendent of New York's Roslyn school district and his staff, who become the prime suspects in the unfolding of the single largest public school embezzlement scandal in American history.
The movie offers plenty of laughs and a powerful message, which makes it a win in our book. It also benefits from a tremendous performance from Hugh Jackman, who shines in the lead role.
19. Little Monsters
A horror comedy that’s not to miss, Little Monsters centres on a washed-up musician who teams up with a teacher and a kids' show personality to protect children during a sudden outbreak of zombies.
Sounds silly? Maybe, but the movie is also a whole lot of fun thanks to the fresh story and strong chemistry between the cast. Lupita Nyong'o, as always, is an absolute delight.
20. Good Boys
A hilarious (and raunchy!) coming-of-age comedy, Good Boys centres on three 6th grade boys who ditch school and embark on an epic journey. It involves a lost drone, carrying accidentally stolen drugs, being hunted by teenage girls and trying to make their way home in time for a long-awaited party.
Good Boys may remind you of Superbad, but it has a freshness that is uniquely its own thanks to timely jokes and an underlying sense of adventure. You'll have a blast watching this one.
Sorry, we've found no streaming options for this title.
21. John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum
The third installment in the John Wick franchise not only meets expectations, it exceeds them. Stuck with a hefty bounty on his head, Wick must fight his way through the streets of New York as he becomes the target of the world's most ruthless killers. What’s not to love?
Brimming with over-the-top action sequences and beautifully choreographed fight scenes, the movie is a memorable ride. Turns out, sequels aren’t always disappointing.
22. Deadwood: The Movie
Deadwood fans, rejoice! After being teased for years, the Deadwood movie is finally available. And just like the original series, it does not disappoint. As the residents of Deadwood gather to commemorate Dakota's statehood in 1889, saloon owner Al Swearengen clashes with Sheriff Seth Bullock, to mesmerizing results.
Deeply satisfying for fans looking for closure, Deadwood: The Movie is both a gift to viewers and a fond farewell to a critically acclaimed series. If you’re a fan of the series, you’ll love it. If you haven’t seen the original show yet, what are you waiting for?
