It costs a pretty penny these days to go to the movie theater. Not only are movie tickets at an all-time high, but when you add popcorn and snacks, it can break the budget! That said, why head to the movies when you can watch the latest features from the comfort of your own home?

Whether you are subscribed to Netflix, Prime Video, Hulu, or another streaming platform, there's something for you to watch. However, Prime Video is leading the competition with three new movies, Upgraded, Five Blind Dates, and This Is Me...Now: A Love Story. Following close behind Prime Video, we have Netflix with two must-see debuts, Orion and the Dark and Players.

Don't be so quick to sleep on Peacock, Hulu, or Paramount+, though! After all, it's quality over quantity, wouldn't you agree? Also, please note, the movies below are not the only streaming releases the platforms are dishing out, just the top eight movies we recommend.

One of the movies we look forward to most is Players on Netflix. The movie will be available to stream on Feb. 14 and stars Gina Rodriguez, Tom Ellis, Damon Wayans Jr., Joel Courtney, Augustus Prew, and others. I don't know about you, but I miss Tom Ellis! I'm still trying to get over the fact that Lucifer is over. I'm so excited to see Ellis again in this romcom. Check out the trailer here:

Another movie we can't wait to watch is Five Blind Dates on Prime Video. The romcom will stream on Feb. 13. The movie follows Lia (Shuang Hu), a woman who, as part of a family tradition, has her future told by a fortune teller, who shares that if she wants to save her business and find her real soulmate, Lia must go on five blind dates.
