The impact of the cult studio’s stunning films can still be felt today, in an era of streaming with a Paramount+ subscription that is chock-full of countless classics and hidden gems that are hard to find on other streaming platforms. To make it easier for you to choose what to watch, we have selected the best movies on Paramount+ at the moment.
Saving Private Ryan (1998)
During World War II, a small detachment of American soldiers must risk their lives to find a young private who will become the only surviving son in his family. Although Steven Spielberg, thankfully, earned Academy recognition for his thrilling directing of “Saving Private Ryan,” many still believe that this heartbreakingly realistic portrayal of the war starring Tom Hanks also deserves an Oscar for Best Film.
Galactic Search (1999)
A washed-up actor (Tim Allen) and his former film partners (including Sigourney Weaver and Alan Rickman) get a chance to become real heroes by friendly aliens who believe their canceled cult sci-fi series was real. Galaxy Quest, which is considered a cult fun favorite these days, is an artful satire of Trekkie culture, but also with all the thrills of the best Star Trek movies and TV series, which hopefully will get a sequel someday
