The titular Renault Le Car is just as bad, holding the title of Worst Movie Car Ever from (Hulu, 4/1)


Minority Report (2002)

This Steven Spielberg thriller plunges viewers — and Tom Cruise — into a near-future America where criminals can be arrested for psychic-foreseen crimes they haven’t committed yet. Making this dystopia just a little cooler: an advanced Lexus 2054 concept car designed specifically for the movie. (Amazon, 4/1)


Roger & Me (1989)

The controversial filmmaker Michael Moore made his debut with this passionate, award-winning documentary about how a series of automotive plant layoffs and closures devastated the city of Flint, Michigan. (HBO Max, 4/1)

Engine Masters: Season 1

Hardcore gearheads will love this series from MotorTrend. Across the season’s 18 episodes, the hosts customize engines, swap out parts, and test performance specs for a wide variety of powertrains. (Amazon, April 1)

Basically a cross between a preschool version of Cars and an extended toy commercial, this fanciful animated series for little ones follows the adventures of a little orange talking car and his family and friends in the town of Bumperton Hills. (Netflix, 4/27)
