Talking of Christopher Nolan, here are another one of his creations that was filled with scientific accuracies about wormholes as well as blackhole. Featuring Anne Hathaway and Matthew McConaughey, Interstellar is among those movies that made it to the Oscars. They bagged five nominations and won one for the best editing. The story is set in an apocalyptic future, where Earth is becoming uninhabitable, farmer and ex-NASA pilot Cooper is asked to pilot a spacecraft along with a team of researchers to find a new planet for humans.
Christopher Nolan’s sci-fi masterpiece thrusts you into the world of dreams and leaves you so bewildered that it’s difficult to wake up. Starring Leonardo DiCaprio as a corporate spy who steals secrets by inserting himself in others’ subconscious dream states, the film not only imagines this complex universe, it flips its structure, as DiCaprio’s man on the run is made to plan the perfect heist in order to leave behind his criminal life. Rather than stealing ideas, he’s got to implant one—that’s inception, baby!—with his team of specialists, resulting in a surrealist, multilayered film
If you pick this, you get the excuse to forget all about the other new shows and movies on Amazon Prime Video and all the other streaming platforms this week. The Matrix trilogy is a must-watch for everybody. The premise is that the creation of artificial intelligence led to a race of self-aware machines that imprisoned mankind in a virtual reality system. Even though it was made over two decades ago, these movies are still relevant today and will most definitely blow your mind. Take this red pill, we promise you won’t regret it. The first installment of the Matrix won all the four categories it was nominated for, according to
Mad Max: Fury
By definition, the meaning of science fiction involves imagined futures, scientific or technological advances, major social or environmental changes, and frequently portraying space or time travel and life on other planets. Since this movie is based in a post-apocalyptic wasteland, it makes it among part of the sci-fi movies on Amazon Prime Video. Max, a survivor, unwillingly joins Imperator Furiosa, a rebel warrior, in a quest to overthrow a tyrant who controls the land’s water supply. At the Oscars, it was nominated for 11 Oscars and ended up winning six.
While the MCU has topped it many times over since, 2012’s The Avengers was Marvel Studios’ first big test, the culmination of Phase 1. Thankfully, the Joss Whedon-directed film passed with flying colors, giving birth to many moments that still remain iconic in superhero cinema. Seeing Iron Man, Captain America, Hulk, Thor, Hawkeye, and Black Widow all team up to face off with Loki and Thanos’ alien army was truly magical for Marvel fans, many of which had spent years hoping to see anything close to that on the big screen. The Avengers will probably become exclusive to Disney Plus eventually, but for now, it’s available on Amazon Prime.
Most horror films are full of obvious supernatural threats, whether they be vampires, ghosts, demons. or even the occasional sadistic leprechaun. Sometimes though, a horror effort comes along to reinforce that at the end of the day, the fear of losing a loved one is one that audiences can’t escape, even after the latest scary movie stops playing. One recent example of that type is 2018’s critically lauded (89% on Rotten Tomatoes) Hereditary, directed by Ari Aster, and starring Toni Collette as Annie, an emotionally scarred mom who finds her life spinning more and more out of control following the death of her own mother. Hereditary has become a bit divisive in horror circles, but it’s worth watching on Amazon Prime and judging for oneself.
Inside Llewyn Davis
One of the Coen brothers’ best films, Inside Llewyn Davis, stars Oscar Isaac as the title character, a struggling folk singer in 1960s New York City. Perpetually living in the shadow of his more successful peers, Llewyn drifts from one friend’s couch to another’s, trying to scrounge together money from occasional gigs. The movie has a bittersweet, melancholy tone, with Llewyn serving as a stand-in for anyone who’s faced the prospect of giving up on their dreams.
Love & Friendship
One of Amazon’s best original movies, Love & Friendship is a delightful Jane Austen adaptation from filmmaker Whit Stillman. Based on Austen’s early novel Lady Susan, the movie stars Kate Beckinsale as a ruthless, sharp-tongued social climber with witty rejoinders for everyone she meets. Love & Friendship adds a nasty edge to Austen’s typical romantic narrative while still satisfyingly pairing off all the main characters in suitable marriages.
The Vast of Night
A major achievement on a minuscule budget, Andrew Patterson’s The Vast of Night features elaborate tracking shots and rapid-fire dialogue for a film that almost feels like an illustrated radio play. The movie takes place in a small New Mexico town in the 1950s on a night when extraterrestrials may have arrived. Teenagers Fay (Sierra McCormick), a switchboard operator, and Everett (Jake Horowitz), a radio DJ, crisscross the town as they attempt to find out the truth about the strange local occurrences.
