The Oath (2018)Ike Barinholtz writes, directs, and stars in The Oath, a timely satire that plays upon the idea of never talking politics at Thanksgiving. When a controversial new law arises that requires American citizens to sign a pledge of loyalty to the president in exchange for a tax break, political junkie Chris (Barinholtz) and his wife Kai (Tiffany Haddish) refuse to take the oath, regardless of the consequences. But as the Black Friday deadline for signing looms, Chris and Kai will have to deal with government interrogations, family arguments, and one very tense Thanksgiving holiday to make it through.
Turkey talk: The premise of The Oath was inspired by several real-life historical events, including the 1947 Truman Loyalty Oath, which prescribed “procedures for the administration of an employees loyalty program in the executive branch of the government.”Where to stream: Hulu
Well, aside from Captain Marvel 's continued dominance, we've got an Oscar-winning documentary landing on Hulu and some good news for Marvel's first Asian-American-led movie. In fact, just yesterday word came out that the studio has hired Destin Daniel Cretton to direct Shang-Chi , Marvel’s first superhero movie with an Asian lead.
“Gobble, gobble motherfucker!” That’s the tagline of this so-bad-it’s-kinda-good Thanksgiving horror movie (it doesn’t have a ton of competition in the category) in which a group of college students heading home for the holiday get stranded in the woods when their car breaks down. Unfortunately for them, there’s also a homicidal turkey on the loose … do we really need to say any more to sell you?
Turkey talk: ThanksKilling spawned a Kickstarter-funded sequel, ThanksKilling 3, which you can pay to rent on Amazon. No, there is no ThanksKilling 2.Where to stream: Amazon
