20 Must Watch Movies On HBO Max

Featured Video

HBO Max has a plethora of great movies that one can say rivals the current collection of Netflix and Amazon. With over 600 feature films it feels like a near-impossible task to limit this list to only 20 films, but at FandomWire we did just that. It was tough work (okay, it was pretty fun work too). After days of research, countless hours staring at a bright screen, going through bags of junk food, cans of energy drinks and so many bathroom breaks!
