Astronomers believe that there are more than 40 billion planets inhabiting the space of the Milky Way. There are nearly as many movies filed under Netflix’s “sci-fi & fantasy” tag. Reaching them all in a single lifetime would require light-speed Wi-Fi and a galaxy brain, so allow us to provide a streaming wormhole. Tucked under the gas giants of the platform — we don’t need to tell you to watch Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Armageddon or Guardians of the Galaxy — these are the Netflix sci-fi movies you should actually watch (and soon — they could pull a Krypton and disappear from the platform at any moment). Psychokinesis (2018) From Korean animator Yeon Sang-ho — best known for his jump to live action, 2016’s zombie knockout Train to Busan (also on Netflix) — Psychokinesis follows Shin, a bumbling, borderline-alcoholic security guard who drinks from a mountain spring recently infected by a meteorite and gains telekinetic … [Read more...] about 13 sci-fi movies now on Netflix that you need to see

Netflix has always done well out of being perceived as the cheeky young upstart, the brave disruptor of a stale status quo. A service that lives or dies by how well it can drive and maintain subscriptions, Netflix has a long history of delivering cool, unexpected events designed to prove just how dynamic, fresh, exciting, and in-tune with the modern media enthusiast it really is, compared to the slow, unswerving old-guard. There was the early championing of much-loved, but decidedly dead, culty shows, whose audiences had long felt neglected by their original owners. The resurrection of Arrested Development made Netflix an instant hero, regardless of the eventual quality of season 4. As did the service's at-the-time unprecedented move of securing day-and-date, ‘live’ broadcast of the final season of Breaking Bad for long-deprived, spoiler-fearing UK audiences, in step with the show’s US airdates. And then there were the many, many revivals of nostalgia … [Read more...] about Cloverfield, Annihilation, and Mute: Do Netflix’s big name movies make it a real Hollywood rival, or is it all just expensive smoke and mirrors?
Females on film While film school classes and incensed critics continue to debate the lack of women in film, female actresses are fighting the good fight on the silver screen itself. Alas, not in anywhere near the numbers needed - provided things were a little bit fairer, of course - or that woman over the age of 40 didn't suddenly become a movie exec's idea of nightmare kryptonite.Over the years, these actresses have been asked to play any number of damsels, dames, nagging housewives, ditzy girlfriends and occasionally (just occasionally) an interesting and nuanced character. This list celebrates the latter, looking at the very best female creations in the history of cinema.

Netflix announced today that it was finally allowing subscribers to access certain TV shows, series and specials while offline. In order to play content while in offline mode, all users have to do is download the film or show they want to watch while connected to Wi-Fi or operating on a 3G/LTE network and wait for it to finish. Then, while in the mobile app on Android and iPhone devices, people can click on the downloads section and pick what they want to stream. Although there are a number of films and shows that aren’t available — Disney, Pixar and Lucasfilm content are not, for example — there’s a pretty substantial library of entertainment to choose from. To help make it a little easier, Polygon has put together a list of the best titles to download right now.

During World War II, my grandfather was in Europe, and one day walked by a superior officer (whom he didn’t think was all that bright) who was reading a Superman comic. A moment later, his superior sneered and tossed the comic to him, saying, "I’m not reading that stupid thing again. It’s a story where Superman meets Santa Claus."My grandfather was confused by this. His superior officer then practically shouted in annoyance, "You can’t have Superman meet Santa Claus. Santa Claus isn’t real!"That story and statement fascinate me to this day. What are the boundaries we make for our fictional characters? Why is it ok for some of us (myself included sometimes) that Superman can defy physics and meet figures from Norse and Greek mythology, but it’s just strange and offputting if he meets beings such as the Easter Bunny or Santa Claus unless it’s a dream or a story that is announced to be outside of canon? Why are we looking for there to be any sense … [Read more...] about Santa is just as real as Superman — and that’s the best thing about them
