In a short time since its inception, Apple TV+ has built a library of titles that present movies and TV shows of all genres to the audience. There is something for everyone, and the streaming service keeps adding to that collection every month. Still, there are very few films that take the audience on a journey that is enticing and seductive at the same time. Sometimes, we just want to watch a film for the simple fact that it looks good and stirs some interesting emotions. These films (sexy is the term we use) can range from everything from a feel-good movie to a crime thriller to a romance drama. The sexiness of the movie is just as much a hook as its plot and other things, and Apple TV+ offers several such films to cater to every audience.
