Back to the future
Robert Zemeckis’ Back to the Future trilogy is one of the definitive classics of 1980s sci-fi cinema, a master class in charismatic character acting, dynamic comic writing, and brilliant speculative storytelling. Michael J. Fox is instrumental in his career as Marty McFly, a high school student from California who is accidentally sent back 30 years with the help of time-traveling DeLorean, created by eccentric Doctor Emmett “Doc Brown (Christopher Lloyd). Stuck in the past, Marty must find a way to power up the DeLorean and return home safely without inadvertently erasing his own existence in the process. -YOU
Back to the future, back to the future part II and back to the future part III to leave Amazon Prime Video April 30.
Coming to America
At the top of his game after Stock markets, two Beverly Hills Cop films and his legendary (if not controversial) stand-up concert film Gross, Eddie Murphy turned to the story of a rich and famous young prince from the African nation of Zamunda who yearns for a normal life. Unlike his hard-R-rated comedy, Coming to America is a surprisingly smooth and balanced romantic comedy, with the open-hearted prince navigating the ups and downs of Queens, New York City in search of the perfect woman. It is also the film that hooked Murphy to play multiple roles in a single film; he and Arsenio Hall slip into old age makeup and jerry curl wigs to play a variety of side characters who make Murphy’s Prince Akeem Joffer laugh more. The actor must be nostalgic for this experience – Coming to America is leaving Amazon just weeks after the release of the long-awaited sequel, Coming 2 America, which remains an Amazon exclusive. -YOU
Coming to America leaves Amazon Prime Video April 30.
Dazed and confused
Set in the last days of upper class at an Austin, Texas high school in 1976, Richard Linklater’s coming-of-age comedy 1993 follows a group of teens through this fleeting crossroads period. awkward to look ahead while looking to get high, drunk and lucky here and now. It’s terribly funny and has a cast of fledgling names that would deliver stunning performances, including Milla Jovovich and Matthew McConaughey. Haven’t you seen it yet? Well you’d be a lot cooler if you do. -YOU
Dazed and confused leaves Amazon Prime Video April 30.
The black Knight
So I wasn’t going to watch this movie, but I found out that Eric Roberts, the star of “Mr. Brightside, âa villain played in it and I absolutely had to see what it looked like. Turns out he’s awesome! Roberts really channels that Brightside energy as Sal Maroni, a pissed off Gotham City gangster who has had a hard time because a man in a bat costume made it difficult for him to make a living. So he hires an independent contractor who dresses like a clown (this film is not only about crime, but also about the economy of concerts, which is kind of the same thing) to solve his problem and he s turns out that freelancers are not felt at all. having good health insurance and paid time off – which the movie kinda gets when the Joker (they really call him that! Wild.) threatens to blow up a hospital and ships, but it mostly works in the context .
It’s really surprising how well crackerjack director Christopher Nolan has done with The black Knight, considering that no one is really having a good time. (Well a person is, but we’re not meant to relate.) If you’re not sure to check this one out, I kindly suggest you reconsider, because you’ll probably appreciate it! That’s right, the “Batman” is a bit ridiculous to watch and his voice is terribly silly but also: this costume is probably extremely uncomfortable! I wouldn’t be very sympathetic either! Something to think about. –Joshua Rivera
The black Knight leaves Netflix April 30.

The 1979 original that sparked the historic post-apocalyptic action series, George Miller’s Mad Max stars Mel Gibson as a police officer working in the future dystopian suburb of Victoria, Australia. When his partner, wife and child are ruthlessly murdered by a marauding gang of criminals, Max sets out on a campaign of revenge to get revenge on their murderers. Thought Dirty Harry, but with a lot of explosions and a lot more sand. -YOU
Mad Max leaves Hulu April 30.
Once upon a Time in the West
Sergio Leone defined the genre of spaghetti westerns throughout the 1960s with his legendary âDollarsâ trilogy starring Clint Eastwood. Despite announcing his retirement from westerns after his job in 1966 The good the bad and the ugly, Leone accepted an offer from Paramount Pictures to make Once upon a Time in the West. The film follows a mysterious stranger with a harmonica, played by Charles Bronson, who teams up with a notorious desperado (Jason Robards) to protect a widow from the ruthless machinations of an assassin (Henry Fonda) working for a railroad company. The film is today one of the greatest westerns ever produced and was selected for preservation in the United States Nation Film Registry by the Library of Congress in 2009. -YOU

Two years before defining the comic book movie with the years 1978 Superman, director Richard Donner made one of the must-see films in the horror genre: The omen. Designed in the wake of The Exorcist, the story centers on the birth of the Antichrist … and the two parents assigned by fate to raise him. With Gregory Peck and Lee Remick as two head-turning adults trying to make sense of their morbid situation, and young Harvey Spencer Stephens as the creepy and creepy, sinister Damian, Donner finds a place in almost all types of horror fun. There are gruesome murders, eerie supernatural danger, and a sense of cosmic unraveling – in no small part thanks to Jerry Goldsmith’s legendary score – that sends an existential chill down your spine. Spirituality itself is under fire. The omen. –Matte patches
The omen leaves Hulu April 30.
Nolan’s 2006 Prestige, much like a magic trick, is (roughly) made up of three parts, or acts. The first part is an exhibition, where we are introduced to the protagonists of the film in the form of two rival illusionists played by Hugh Jackman and Christian Bale vying to become the greatest living magician of their time. The second part is the premise, where things turn sour following a devastating crash on stage, pitting the two against a lifelong collision that turns their professional rivalry into a dangerous blood feud. Part three is the climax, where the movie takes everything we thought knew about these characters and overturn those assumptions to achieve the greatest cinematic twist in Christopher Nolan’s career. Oh, and David Bowie is here dressed as Nikola Tesla. Are you looking closely? -YOU
Prestige leaves Amazon Prime Video April 30.
John Singleton’s 2000 action crime thriller Tree (a sequel to the classic 1971 blaxploitation that should not be confused with the unfortunate 2019 Tree) is where it is. Samuel L. Jackson plays the NYPD sleuth (and nephew of the original’s namesake protagonist) who embarks on a ruthless campaign to bring in the sociopathic yuppie son of a powerful real estate mogul (played perfectly by the future American psycho/The black Knight star Christian Bale) in court following a gruesome racially motivated murder. Westworld Star Jeffrey Wright appears as ruthless drug lord Peoples Hernandez alongside Vanessa Williams as detective Carmen Vasquez and rap legend Busta Rhymes as fast-talking cab driver Rasaan. -YOU
Tree leaves Hulu April 30.
Before pulling off the coveted Oscar hat trick of winning Best Director, Best International Feature, Best Original Screenplay, and Best Picture with his 92nd Oscar black comedy thriller Parasite, Bong Joon-ho presented to the public Western taste for the trenchant.

Based on the book by Robert Graysmith (and starring Jake Gyllenhaal as the author himself), Zodiac tells about the research of the infamous “Zodiac Killer”. The film follows Graysmith as he becomes increasingly obsessed with investigation, and co-stars Mark Ruffalo as proto-Columbo Dave Toschi and Robert Downey Jr. as journalist Paul Avery. The real case remains unsolved, and the movie – slightly spicy – remains David Fincher’s best film.
