One of the greatest things about streaming services like Tubi is the ability to finally watch that movie you've known about your entire life but have never actually seen for whatever reason. Maybe you're just too young. Maybe it's just not that big a priority. Whatever. The ability to watch for free (with advertising) means the only thing you have to pony up is your time.

For me, 1971's Shaft is one of those movies — and it's on Tubi this July. The theme song won an Oscar. (And had I actually had a wedding reception, it was going to be what I walked in to. Because I'm hipster like that. Or really just a sucker for good wah-wah pedal and buildup.) The movie itself? We'll just let the studio explain:

John Shaft was indeed a shut-your-mouth detective to reckon with, a fact emphasized from the film's start by Isaac Hayes' Academy Award-winning song and Oscar-nominated score. Richard Roundtree plays the smart, tough, confident lead, a private investigator whose hunt for a kidnapped woman puts him in the middle of feuding syndicates. Gordan Parks directs from a screenplay that Ernest Tidyman (that same year's Oscar-winner for The French Connection) co-scripted from his own novel. John Shaft is an icon of change from an era of change. Today, Shaft still tells it like it is.

So there's that. And here's what else is headed your way on Tubi in July:

Tubi is a free, advertising-supported streaming service that includes movies and shows from all kinds of studios, and across all genres. It's easy to watch on your TV, on your mobile device, on any streaming platform, and in a web browser.View Deal
