Spring football returns with the 2024 United Football League (UFL). The UFL is the byproduct of the merger between the XFL and USFL at the end of 2023.

The UFL consists of eight teams – four from the XFL and four from the USFL. The UFL teams competing to win a championship are the Arlington Renegades, Birmingham Stallions, DC Defenders, Houston Roughnecks, Memphis Showboats, Michigan Panthers, San Antonio Brahmas, and St. Louis Battlehawks. The 2024 UFL inaugural season begins with a special doubleheader as part of UFL Kickoff Weekend.

If you plan to travel on Saturday or watch the games from a foreign location, know that streaming services work differently in these situations. To alleviate potential issues that may arise, download a VPN service. With a VPN, Internet users will have more protection from phishing attacks and malware viruses. A VPN will also work to bypass regional broadcast restrictions, allowing for a better streaming experience. Our suggestion is to download NordVPN. Just know that NordVPN offers a 30-day money-back guarantee, meaning there isn’t a penalty for trying the service.

Netflix’s most addictive movie of 2024 is now streaming. Here’s why you need to watch it
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.
