At the beginning of (and during) every month, iTunes adds new movies and TV shows to its library. Below, you’ll find our recommendations for February 2018. For more comprehensive coverage of the best titles available on iTunes and elsewhere, check out Vulture’s What to Stream Now hub, which is updated throughout the month.

This Month’s Highlights

Available February 27

Because the Oscars are almost here: Call Me by Your Name

Director Luca Guadagnino’s adaptation of André Aciman’s critically acclaimed book is stunning, and it’s got the awards-season buzz to prove it: Call Me by Your Name is nominated for Oscars in four different categories, including Best Picture and Best Actor for Timothée Chalamet. As Elio Perlman, Chalamet manages to perfectly encapsulate the ups and downs of first love at the height of summer, and is matched by Armie Hammer as the object of his affections. Michael Stuhlbarg, turning in a beautiful performance as Elio’s father, is the cherry on top. Available February 27.

If you’re looking for a good time: Thor: Ragnarok

Whether you love Marvel movies or you hate Marvel movies, Thor: Ragnarok is a blast. Taika Waititi is one of the best directors working today, and his take on the Norse god of thunder is an arcade-induced fever dream that is equal parts fantasy and colonial narrative. It’s also the definitive proof that Chris Hemsworth was born to be a comedic actor, as he handily carries off the film’s funniest material without breaking a sweat. Available February 27.

If you liked The Shape of Water’s vibe: Berlin Station

The very underrated Berlin Station, which Epix just renewed for a third season, boasts one of the most impressive casts on TV, including The Shape of Water’s Richard Jenkins as a spymaster and Cold War veteran. Starring Richard Armitage as an undercover CIA agent in Berlin, the show is a zippy political thriller that’s worth catching. If you’re looking for a taste of the wry tone, the show’s theme song is David Bowie’s “I’m Afraid of Americans,” and the season-two premiere is titled “Everything’s Gonna Be Alt-Right.” When you’re finished watching The Shape of Water again, check this out too. Available February 5.
