the clover­field para­dox for fans of Alien, Grav­ity, Life

With just a sin­gle trailer re­leased dur­ing the Su­per­bowl, The Clover­field Para­dox sud­denly dropped on Net­flix. It’s easy to see why—it’s shoddy and non­sen­si­cal—but we can’t help but love its trashy, alien-fight­ing fun.

ghost in the shell for fans of BladeRun­ner2049

This live-ac­tion re­make ex­plores some weighty themes, such as iden­tity and if a soul can ex­ist within an ar­ti­fi­cial body, but mostly it’s just worth watch­ing for the gor­geous dystopian cityscape, full of gi­ant 3D bill­boards and pop­ping candy col­ors.

the big sick for fans of Bend It Like Beck ham

Two cul­tures clash in this ro­man­tic com­edy based on the real-life courtship be­tween Pak­istani co­me­dian Ku­mail Nan­jiani and Amer­i­can writer Emily V Gor­don. Rom-coms can be too sweet, but The Big Sick is wry, hi­lar­i­ous, and tender in all the right places.

king arthur: leg­end of the sword for fans of Game Of Thrones, Vik­ings

Guy Ritchie swaps the mean streets of Lon­don for a dirty vi­sion of Dark Ages Bri­tain. The first in­stal­ment in a can­celled fan­tasy se­ries, Ritchie’s Arthur is a moody up­start out to over­throw King Vor­tigern.

coloss al for fans of Pa­cific Rim, Gar­den State

This weird lit­tle gem sees Anne Hath­away play a washed-up alcoholic who returns to her home­town for a fresh start, only to dis­cover she shares a mind with a gi­ant mon­ster wreck­ing the streets of Seoul. A mon­ster movie dressed as an in­die movie.

lion for fans of Life Of Pi

One of last year’s best movies is a mov­ing por­trayal of find­ing fam­ily. Based on the true story by Sa­roo Bri­er­ley, it fol­lows a young In­dian man (a su­perb turn from Dev Pa­tel) who sets out to find his real par­ents 25 years af­ter he was adopted as a child.
