The Best Movies & TV Shows Coming to Netflix in February 2021

It’s that time again! Time to talk about what new stuff is hitting Netflix next month. And let me tell you, folks, the line-up for February is looking a little anemic.

As a result, the streaming service unleashes a slew of originals that may or may not be good while cutting down on stuff you might actually want to watch. It’s a bit rough, but that’...

‘From Dusk Till Dawn’ Animated Series in the Works, Says Robert Rodriguez

For people who were amped about the indie film boom of the 1990s, From Dusk Till Dawn represented an exciting new development in the careers of Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez. Years before the failed 2007 experiment that was Grindhouse, the two indie wunderkinds teamed up to make a unique B-movie that shifted from a straightforward crime thriller into an all-out vampire horror film. Now, 25 years later, Rodriguez says that a From Dusk Till Dawn animated series is in development. Read hi...

‘Soul’ Dubbing Ignites Controversies Overseas as White Actors Voice Black Lead

Soul struck a chord, not just for its beautiful photorealistic animation nor its wrangling with abstract concepts of the life, purpose, and beyond, but for its genuine depiction of the Black community, centered around lead character Joe (voiced by Jamie Foxx in English). And while a few things can get lost in translation in the film’s transition over to European markets, those elements remain crucial to Soul. But one choice by many European markets pertaining to the latter — Joe’s Black identit...
