Whether you like Oscar-winning documentaries, delightfully silly comedies, or cinephile essentials, Tubi TV has the film for you this month. Here are just some of the titles that are gracing our New Arrivals on Tubi TV section this second week of April 2017:
Be Cool (2005)
Why you should watch: Not only does this this sequel to Get Shorty find John Travolta returning to the role of Chili Palmer, it reteams him with Pulp Fiction costar Uma Thurman. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Vince Vaughn, Danny DeVito, Cedric the Entertainer, André Benjamin, Harvey Keitel, and more co-star.
Bowling for Columbine (2002)
Why you should watch: Michael Moore’s controversial documentary about gun violence didn’t appear to divide the Academy: Bowling for Columbine won the Oscar for Best Documentary.
A Fish Called Wanda (1988)
Why you should watch: Kevin Kline earned an Oscar for playing Otto–and it’s well deserved. This is one of the funniest performances (in one of the funniest films) ever. In any other movie, co-stars John Cleese, Jamie Lee Curtis, or Michael Palin would be the standout, but here, it can only be Kline.
Blue Velvet (1986)
Why you should watch: David Lynch’s strange, surreal film about what lies beneath facade of small towns is a must-watch for anyone who cares about cinema–but it’s not for the faint of heart. Blue Velvet is beautiful, but absolutely disturbing, thanks largely to Dennis Hopper’s unhinged performance as Frank Booth.
Blown Away (1994)
Why you should watch: Jeff Bridges squares off against Tommy Lee Jones mad bomber in this explosive (sorry) thriller. The similar Speed was released just a month before Blown Away in the summer of 1994, which likely explains why this remains an underrated, underseen gem.
The Amityville Horror (1979)
Why you should watch: This haunted house movie inspired a number of sequels and a 2005 remake starring Ryan Reynolds. It’s supposedly based on a true story, and it was one of the cases investigated by the couple depicted in The Conjuring franchise.
