Devotion (Paramount Plus and OnDemand)
Dedication actually predates Top Gun: Maverick (in that it was made first), but how the former could benefit from the proverbial jetstream left behind by Tom Cruise’s blockbuster. But while Devotion stars Maverick scene-stealer Glenn Powell (who played “The Hangman”) as pilot Tom Hadner, this movie is about Jonathan.・It is the work of Majors (“He Remains” in “Loki”). HI’s Ensign Jesse Brown said it wasn’t easy to be a black pilot in 1950, so he motivates himself by repeating the nasty things he’s been told over the years. increase.
Praised as a more nuanced war movie, Devotion is about the growing bond of friendship between Hudner and Brown. Both men are slightly stronger and quieter types (at least when Brown isn’t cursing himself), and Powell does a thankless job of playing co-pilots who mostly react to his fellow Skymen.

The Return of Tanya Tucker (On Demand)
A documentary directed by Kathryn Horan about the recent resurgence (or, as she calls it, “the reboot”) of country icon Tanya Tucker, combines new and archival footage to showcase Brandi Carlyle’s shoes. Carlisle, an industry star in her own right, has been a fan of Tanya Tucker since she was a kid, so “The Return” fits both.
By showing young Carlyle what she’s seen and telling stories of her influence in the business, Horan paints a vivid picture. The film shows the bond between the two, and you can see how much it means to them that Tucker is having her moment.
