Although a subscription to HBO Max may be more bang for your buck, HBO remains one of the top premium cable channels. Why? It’s all in the name: Home Box Office. HBO has gone out of its way to land major motion pictures soon after they hit theaters. It also has the advantage of being able to draw directly from the rich film library of Warner Bros. Pictures, as well as a selection of movies from other studios. Plus, the multiple HBO channels curate the movies for you, so you can just turn on the TV and watch something. But with our newly updated list of the best movies on HBO right now, you don’t have to wait to make your plans.
Quentin Tarantino wrote and co-starred in director Robert Rodriguez’s From Dusk Till Dawn. Fittingly, this movie starts out like a crime story with bank robbers Seth (George Clooney) and Richie Gecko (Tarantino) on the run from the law. To sneak into Mexico, the Geckos take a pastor, Jacob Fuller (Harvey Keitel), and his children, Kate (Juliette Lewis) and Scott (Ernest Liu), as their hostages. But once they arrive at their destination, the Fullers and the Geckos must make a desperate alliance when they come face to face with actual vampires.
Director and co-writer Alfonso Cuarón delivered a visually dazzling masterpiece with Gravity, which stars Sandra Bullock as astronaut Dr. Ryan Stone. When a disaster in space leaves Ryan’s life in jeopardy, Lieutenant Matt Kowalski (George Clooney) takes it upon himself to save her. However, the two astronauts discover that their situation is even more dire than before, and their chances of returning to Earth are slim. Literally all they have left is each other, and soon, they won’t even have that.
