THE READ MAX WATCH LIST
A complete, organized listing of every movie ever recommended on Read Max
Among the most respected departments of Read Max’s globe-spanning newsletter operation is our “Good Movies to Watch” research division. Every week, paid Read Max subscribers are treated to at least one moving-picture recommendation, drawing on our team’s extensive knowledge of genres such as action, science-fiction, ‘90s thriller, and Weird Bullshit to bring you Good Movies that you maybe hadn’t heard of, or had forgotten about, or are simply glad to be made aware are now streaming on HBO Max or your service of choice.
To make your movie-choosing processes even easier -- a rare expression of Read Max’s otherwise questionable commitment to reader satisfication -- we’ve collected all of Read Max’s movie recommendations on this very page, sorted into loose genres or moods. We’ve also included quick lists of the “stupid microgenres” -- like “Dad Thrillers” or “Halogencore” -- around which whole newsletters have been constructed.
Some movies are accompanied by trailers, and links to pages that will tell you what services each movie is streaming on. If you have any questions, or recommendations, or even complaints, please email me! Remember, this page is a benefit for paid subscribers, so if you’d like to read it, make sure you’re signed up
