What the movie-streaming public wants depends on which top 10 chart you prefer. This week offered little consistency and some outright contradictions.

One thing is clear: Jake Gyllenhaal’s straight-to-streaming “Road House” remake is a massive hit. Amazon Prime reported over 50 million worldwide viewers through its second streaming weekend and gateway app Reelgood reported it as the week’s #1 movie for March 21-27 in the U.S.

“The Accountant,” a 2016 Warner Bros. drama starring Ben Affleck, is currently #1 at Netflix. On Easter weekend “The Passion of the Christ” led VOD at iTunes, while the just-released $19.99 “Imaginary” (Lionsgate) topped Fandango’s revenue-calculated list. (It was #20 at iTunes.) For a second week, Google Play did not update its list.

“Ordinary Angels” (also Lionsgate) is #2 at Fandango, but #14 at iTunes. Since Fandango calculates by revenue, that list favors PVODs — but this week, six of its top 10 rented for $5.99 or less; “The Passion of the Christ,” only $3.99, was #8.

Easter also elevated “Hop” (#3) and “The Ten Commandments” (#7) at iTunes, but neither Netflix nor Reelgood reflected a boost for holiday-related titles.

Netflix’s current top 10 contains five originals, starting with the French-language “The Wages of Fear.” After William Friedkin’s “Sorcerer,” it’s the second remake of Henri-Georges Clouzot’s classic adventure tale of truckers transporting nitroglycerine. Also new at #3 is the South African “Heart of the Hunter,” Polish rom-com “No Pressure” at #5, and Bill Nighy as a British soccer coach in “The Beautiful Game” at #8.

“Road House” is #3 at Reelgood, behind Netflix’s “3 Body Problem” and “Quiet on Set” (Max). Oddly, “Irish Spring” was ahead of “Damsel” each day during the the seven-day period, but the fantasy starring Millie Bobby Brown placed at Reelgood as the sole Netflix entry.

Finally, the lists saw two significant dropoffs. After two weeks, “Bob Marley: One Love” (Paramount), is gone from iTunes and dropped from #1 to sixth on Fandango. “Shirley,” another Netflix original, also fell off its list after an eight-day run, reaching as high as #8.
