Where to watch Devotion

In 2022, a thrilling, long-awaited movie that combined nostalgia and amazing action sequences involving aerial combat was released. No, we’re not talking about Top Gun: Maverick — we’re talking about Devotion, J.D. Dillard’s gripping movie about the real-life heroics of Jesse Brown, the first African American to complete the U.S. Navy’s basic flight training program.

Unfortunately, unlike Maverick, Devotion didn’t do too well at the box office. Audiences were still seeing Black Panther: Wakanda Forever or were saving their money for Avatar: The Way of Water. It’s a shame, because the movie is a good old-fashioned crowd-pleaser that Hollywood just doesn’t make much of anymore. Fortunately, Devotion has arrived on streaming services, so you can catch a movie that’s just as good as the Tom Cruise sequel.

That depends on what kind of plan you prefer. To take advantage of the free trial, simply head to the Paramount+ website and sign up. Your first seven days will be free, but after the trial period, subscription plans start as low as $5 per month. That option (called “Essential”) comes with limited commercial interruptions. If you don’t want any ads, the Premium monthly subscription will cost you $10 a month.

You can save money if you commit to a one-year subscription. An Essential annual subscription is $50 a year, while a Premium annual subscription is $100 a year. You can also bundle the Paramount+ subscription with a Showtime subscription for $12 a month or $120 a year.

Is Devotion worth watching?

DEVOTION - Official Trailer (HD)

Yes! Devotion is what a mainstream Hollywood movie should be: slick, absorbing, character-driven, and fun. More so than Top Gun: Maverick, Devotion tells a story that matters. You can’t help but be pulled in by the true story of Brown, who struggled to overcome systematic racism to defend his country.

Dillard masterfully recreates the aerial dogfights Brown participated in, and he’s also just as adept at capturing the unique bond that exists between Brown and his fellow pilots. Jonathan Majors and Glen Powell are standouts as Brown and his best friend, Tom Hudner, who both face impossible odds while flying into enemy territory.

The movie runs 138 minutes and is rated PG-13.

A man and a woman lay next to each other in L.A. Confidential.

One of the perks of keeping your Netflix subscription up to date is that you get automatic access to everything new that the streamer releases on a weekly basis. And, indeed, Netflix tries to make sure that there’s something for everyone on the service, from high-brow movies to undeniably compelling reality TV. In addition to all of the original content that Netflix releases, though, the streamer also has archival titles that were released years or even decades before Netflix existed. If you’ve made your way through all of the original content, or you’re finding that none of it seems like a good choice, then L.A. Confidential might be exactly what you’re looking for.

Released in 1997, the movie is set in 1950s Los Angeles and follows three different cops who all interact with the criminal empire emerging in the city. Here are three reasons why you should definitely check it out:
