Leave the World Behind

Leave the World Behind is a dystopian thriller where all technology becomes inaccessible because of a wave of global cyber-attacks.

The Most Accurate Hacking Movies and TV Shows of All Time

Godzilla Minus One

Many movie buffs tend to look past Godzilla films, despite their immense global popularity, but if there’s one Godzilla movie to watch from the last couple of decades, Godzilla Minus One is it.

There’ve been nearly 40 Godzilla films since Godzilla first came out around 70 years ago, and none get to the heart of the Godzilla story that the first film had—except for Godzilla Minus One. It’s emotional, incredibly well made, and will stick with you long past the time you’ve left the theater.


If you want a high school romp that toes the line, crosses the line, and runs past the line beyond that, then you want to watch Bottoms.

Emma Seligman, Rachel Sennott, and Ayo Edebiri bring camp back to high school while telling an incredibly hilarious, but still poignant, story about gender, love, and identity. It’s funny, heartfelt, and vulgar in all the right ways.
