This week’s list of new movies to watch online is a little shorter than usual. We usually feature seven new movies of his that just hit streaming. This week will be different, as Netflix, HBO Max, and many of the other top streaming services aren’t delivering movies as they normally would.
Still, there are three great movies to talk about, and you can really pay to see each one in theaters. First, we got a great Steven Spielberg drama. This work won him two awards at the Golden Globe Awards.
Then there are the recently released action movies. Think, “What if Santa saved the day and was good with his hammer?” And that Santa is played by Stranger Things’ David Harbour.
Finally, a horror movie with a high A24 level is streaming, with a premise that confuses many and pleases some.
Without preface, here are the top 3 new movies to watch online this week.
One of the biggest movie surprises of the year (which shouldn’t have been that much of a shock), Fabelmann could be considered Steven Spielberg’s origin story. The film follows the Faberman family, especially aspiring filmmaker Sammy (Gabriel Ravel). But as much as Sammy’s soft-spoken father Bert (Paul Dano) and quirky mother Mitzi (Michelle Williams) want to support Sammy, there are plenty of unsettling tensions. , has a relationship with a family friend, Benny (Seth Rogen).
In addition to the family drama, it also tracks Sammy’s life at school, where he is bullied with anti-Semitic jokes. , perseveringly continues.

violent night (peacock)
Listen, it’s not the holiday season anymore, but I don’t mean Violent Night’s corny “What if there’s John Wick and Santa?” The concept isn’t all that interesting. I saw it in theaters after Christmas.
Violent Night focuses on Santa’s trip to the homes of super-rich weirdos, but this Santa (David Harbour) doesn’t really like the game anymore. It’s Christmas Eve, the reindeer aren’t much help, and he has to deal with a world that doesn’t believe in his existence.
With the exception of young Trudy (Leah Brady), whose father Jason (Alex Hassell) and mother Linda (Alexis Lauder) are separated, all look good at the Jason family’s annual Christmas Eve event. Yes. Trudy believes in Santa, and she’s also one of the few actually good people at the event. The matriarch Getrude (Beverly D’Angelo) probably just wants her money and she’s mean to everyone. Her daughter Alva (Eddie Patterson) is a disgust, her son Bert (Alexander Elliott) is an aspiring influencer, and her boyfriend Morgan (Cam Gigandet) is a dunce.
But everyone is tested when Jimmy (John Leguizamo) joins the party leading a band of mercenary thieves to steal his family’s fortune. Luckily, Santa has a dark past that comes in handy. It’s silly, but a violent night that’s a little too long can be a fun time (especially if you get your expectations right).

The relatively recent phrase “not all men” has racked its brains in Alex Garland’s latest film, one of A24’s “advanced horror” films. The men put Harper (Jessie Buckley) in a series of particularly disturbing settings as she processes her grief in the worst possible town. After a compelling incident, Harper, who is leaving on vacation, discovers that the lovely house she has rented in a quaint and remote village has been physically attacked by a very strange and completely naked man. I found that I received forest nearby.
But the guy is just the tip of the unique iceberg. All the men in town seem a little too similar, he looks like that guy even though he’s really weird. A horror movie you need to see for yourself and one with a really weird ending, Men will probably stick with you for a while.
