Godzilla, Wolverine, and Big Bird.
All that and more on Netpicks.
Welcome to Netpicks, where we cover the best stuff you can find online.
First up, let's talk about HBO Now.
The new service launched this month, and I've been playing around with it.
Here are some of the movies you can watch on HBO Now, now.
The 2014 edition of Godzilla is available to stream.
It stars Brian Cranston sort of, and Godzilla sort of.
And then there's X-Men: Days of Future Past, which actually joins the X-Men First Class universe to the Bryan Singer Original X-Men movie universe.
Oh, and this movie's directed by Bryan Singer.
The excellent Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is coming on May the 23rd Now let's talk about what's leaving HBO now on the 31st of May.
A Very Brady Sequel, American Splendor, Dreamgirls, Hope Floats, Little Miss Sunshine, Lost in Translation, Southpark: Bigger, Longer & Uncut, Thelma & Louise, Up IN the Air, and West Side Story.
Let's move onto Hulu.
May first you can start watching Antiturst, Barbershop, Beauty Shop, The Bird Cage, Chitty Chitty Bang, Bang, and Death at a Funeral.
And this month it's time for season finales.
May 5th it's the end of season one for Gotham, that show about Batman that's not about Batman.
Available May 14th is the season three finale of Arrow.
May 18th, Family Guy's 13th season finale and The Simpsons' 26th.
Sixth season finale.
Oh and Hulu announced all 180 episodes of Seinfeld are coming in June.
And last but not least, let's talk about iTunes.
They've got a couple of movies showing up online the same day they do at theatres.
On the first of May check out Ride, written and directed by Helen Hunt.
And on May 8th, the documentary I Am Big Bird.
It's the story of Caroll Spinney, the man behind Big Bird and Oscar the Grouch on Sesame Street.
It comes to iTunes as well as theaters.
I'm so excited to see this movie.
Even if you're incredibly cynical and think the world's a horrible place.
It's kinda like Big Bird.
Come on, it's Big Bird!
