18 Sci-Fi Movies You Should Watch Before The Matrix 4 Comes Out

The Matrix, with its trippy, action-heavy explorations of the nature of reality (and heavy doses of trans allegory), brought mind-bending science fiction to the masses. It was, in many ways, the perfect blending of brain and brawn: a thoughtful movie, open to a wide variety of interpretations, that also happened to…Read more...

The 15 Scariest Horror Movies On Hulu Right Now

Like most streaming services, Hulu is not the place to go if you're looking for older movies. Its 20th century horror selection is limited, at best. However, its selection of recent horror films (especially the smaller, independent films from the likes of Neon and IFC) is excellent. Hulu is also a great home for women-directed horror films, including "The Other Lamb," "Sea Fever," "Little Joe" and "Saint Maud" (to name some of the best ones). However, I have been tasked with choosing the scaries...

Christopher Nolan's Filmography Predicted Our Current Masked, Muffled Reality

It's been a year now since Christopher Nolan's "Tenet," the movie that was supposed to bounce us back from the pandemic and save theaters, landed in the United States. For those who ventured out to see it, "Tenet" may have provided a surreal moviegoing experience — if only because the scene in the theater mirrored the one onscreen. In both of them, people had their faces covered in masks.There are any number of movies or TV shows that could be said to have "predicted" aspects of the real-world f...

Movies Like Interstellar That Are Definitely Worth Watching

"Interstellar" is the closest thing to a classic science fiction movie that Christopher Nolan' has made so far, blending hard sci-fi tropes with an earnest exploration of humanity's drive to survive. For science fiction fans, it's instantly familiar stuff. Nolan's storytelling doesn't always land as powerfully as the movie's visual effects, but "Interstellar" still works as a thoughtful, understated love-letter to the stories that built the science fiction genre.Stripped to its basics, "Interste...

The 20 Best Heist Movies Of All Time

Heist movies transcend genre. You can have frivolous, fun heist movies like "The Italian Job," or heartfelt, straight-faced ones like "Point Break." The heist itself can be meticulously planned and meditative, like the one in "Inside Man," or fall apart before it's even begun, as in "Good Time."To be clear, this is a list of heist films, not movies about con artists. "The Sting," "The Brothers Bloom," and "Gambit" are all brilliant, but the heist tropes -- planning the mission, gathering the tea...

HBO Max Orders Full Circle Limited Series From Steven Soderbergh

Steven Soderbergh can't stop, won't stop, so he's got yet another new project on the way.

‘Interstellar’ Ending Explained: Join Us in the Space Library as We Ask “Does It Hold Up?”

The very first image we see in Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar is a bookshelf with a toy space shuttle on it. There are dust motes in the air, like you might see in the light of an old movie projector, only these aren’t from simple house dust. They’re from a dust storm. Interstellar made its original theatrical run back in late 2014 when lead actor Matthew McConaughey was enjoying a career resurgence, colloquially known as the “McConaissance.” By now, it’s one of those movie titles that could ...

The Anime Classic ‘Akira’ Foresaw the 2020 Tokyo Summer Olympics – and Its Empty Stadium

Three years ago, when we revisited the 1988 anime masterpiece Akira for its 30th anniversary, it was a neat trivia factoid that the film happened to predict — purely by coincidence, mind you — Tokyo, Japan as the site of the 2020 Summer Olympics. Scientists and Steven Soderbergh had already warned us, years earlier, about the potential dangers of a global pandemic. Still, the vast majority of people would have never guessed what 2020 held in store for the residents of planet Earth. Here we are ...

‘Space Jam: A New Legacy’ Review: A Dispiriting IP Mishmash

The new film Space Jam: A New Legacy serves as nothing less than a feature-length definition of the word “dispiriting” for the year 2021. While it is not entirely inaccurate to acknowledge that this could’ve been worse, because the early trailers promised an absolute disaster — a kids’-film version of Cats — that is an insultingly low bar for a movie to clear. Space Jam: A New Legacy may not be quite as horrible as it looked, but it’s still quite bad and a dark sign of a future in which movie s...

How ‘No Sudden Move’ Writer Ed Solomon Drew Inspiration From the Past and the Future of Storytelling [Interview]

No Sudden Move would fit right in with a classic Hollywood noir marathon. Out of director Steven Soderbergh‘s diverse filmography, it’s most reminiscent of his movie The Good German in its intent. Together, the filmmaker and screenwriter Ed Solomon sought to capture a visual language rarely seen anymore. Benicio del Toro‘s Ronald Russo and Don Cheadle‘s Curt Goynes could pop in a ’50s noir and never look or sound out of place. From the patience of the camerawork to the characters who are often ...
