The best NBA players in the league head to Indianapolis this weekend for the 73rd NBA All-Star Game. It will be played under traditional All-Star Game rules, meaning the Eastern Conference will face the Western Conference in a contest with a traditional scoring system and four 12-minute quarters. The game tips off on TNT and TBS at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on February 18. The All-Star game is available to stream on Max, and an alternate broadcast with Charles Barkley will air on truTV.

The Eastern Conference roster includes Giannis Antetokounmpo (Milwaukee Bucks), Jayson Tatum (Boston Celtics), Joel Embiid (Philadelphia 76ers), Tyrese Haliburton (Indiana Pacers), Damian Lillard (Milwaukee Bucks), Jalen Brunson (New York Knicks), Donovan Mitchell (Cleveland Cavaliers), Tyrese Maxey (Philadelphia 76ers), Jaylen Brown (Boston Celtics), Paolo Banchero (Orlando Magic), Bam Adebayo (Miami Heat), and Julius Randle (New York Knicks). Embiid and Randle will not play due to injury and will be replaced by Trae Young (Atlanta Hawks) and Scottie Barnes (Toronto Raptors).

The Western Conference roster features LeBron James (Los Angeles Lakers), Nikola Jokic (Denver Nuggets), Kevin Durant (Phoenix Suns), Luka Doncic (Dallas Mavericks), Shai Gilgeous-Alexander (Oklahoma City Thunder), Stephen Curry (Golden State Warriors), Anthony Edwards (Minnesota Timberwolves), Anthony Davis (Los Angeles Lakers), Kawhi Leonard (L.A. Clippers), Devin Booker (Phoenix Suns), Paul George (L.A. Clippers), and Karl-Anthony Towns (Minnesota Timberwolves).

Expect a lot of scoring, with plenty of highlight-reel dunks. Fans with cable should be able to find TNT and TBS on their TV. If you cut the cord, there are alternative ways to access the NBA All-Star Game. Sling TV is a streaming television service that allows users to watch popular channels without a cable box. Below, you can learn more about how to watch the All-Star Game and other NBA games from anywhere through Sling TV.

If you have to watch one (HBO) Max movie in April 2024, stream this one
Andrew Garfield sits at a table in The Social Network.

HBO built its name off of the movies that it was able to bring to its premium cable channel, and that hasn't changed now that the service has extended its focus to streaming as Max. In this month alone, Max is offering subscribers such films as Black Swan, Elizabethtown, all of the Harry Potter movies, the Infernal Affairs trilogy, The Thomas Crown Affair, and many more. But for us, the one movie that you have to watch on Max in April is The Social Network, a 2010 drama that chronicles the founding of Facebook.

The Social Network is one of the best films by director David Fincher, and its tagline sums up the story pretty well: "You don't get to 500 million friends without making a few enemies." And if there's one thing that main character Mark Zuckerberg excels at in this film, it's making enemies on his way toward making a fortune. If you've never seen this movie before, here are five reasons why you should watch The Social Network on Max in April.

A man aims his camera in Scoop.

Thrillers come in all shapes and sizes. There's the psychological or serial killer thriller, which was popularized in the '90s by The Silence of the Lambs and Se7en. There's the erotic thriller, which had its heyday in the late '80s and early '90s with such hits as Fatal Attraction and Basic Instinct. And then there's the action thriller, which is probably the most popular offshoot of the genre right now, with the Taken series and Salt as prime examples.

Recently, there's been a revival of a subgenre that's been dormant since the 1970s: the journalism thriller. From Nightcrawler with Jake Gyllenhaal to the Oscar-winning Spotlight to 2022's She Said, this type of thriller usually centers around journalists pursuing a controversial and sometimes dangerous story. One of the best journalism thrillers has just been released by Netflix: Scoop. In chronicling how the BBC managed to snag the scoop of the decade by interviewing Prince Andrew about his connections to convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, the movie manages to be suspenseful, informative, and one of 2024's most purely entertaining films.

If you have to watch one Amazon Prime Video movie in April 2024, stream this one
A man balances a hat on his arm in Chaplin.

There's no better time to be a movie fan than near the beginning of the month on Amazon Prime Video. Almost everything new on Prime Video drops on the 1st of the month, and April is no exception. This month, Prime Video has added classic films like Chinatown, To Catch a Thief, and Gunfight at the O.K. Corral, as well as more modern films, including Memoirs Of a Geisha, The Station Agent, and Fighting with My Family. But if you have to watch only one Amazon Prime Video movie in April, it has to be Chaplin.

The late Richard Attenborough directed this 1992 biopic about one of the most beloved stars in the history of Hollywood: Charlie Chaplin. Robert Downey Jr. memorably played Chaplin, as the narrative covers decades in his life, from his reign in the silent film era to his decades in exile before returning for one final bow. At the time of its release, Chaplin was greeted by mixed reviews, but it has withstood the test of time over three decades later. Now, we're going to share five reasons why you should watch Chapin on Amazon Prime Video during your next movie night.
