Robocop returns to the ice
While its spin-off sequels, reboot, and lackluster line of video games may make it easy to forget, the 1987 original Robotcop is a cinematic masterpiece. Set in a dystopian vision of Detroit overrun with rampant crime and corporate malfeasance, beat cop Alex Murphy is horribly mutilated by a street gang and left for dead. Recovered and resurrected through a set of advanced cybernetics, Murphy becomes Robocop and the town’s last hope to save it from total anarchy.
The original 1987 film and its 1990 sequel are set to leave Prime Video by the end of March, making it the last weekend to catch the adventures of the cybernetically enhanced Robocop on the streaming service for the foreseeable future. Both a social satire as biting today as it was 35 years ago and a gripping action film, Robotcop is a timeless classic. By revisiting Robocop 2 is optional, a revision of the original Robotcop is obligatory.
Batman draws his final bow on Hulu
As The Batman and Robert Pattinson’s portrayal of DC’s flagship superhero continues to delight audiences in theaters around the world, the fan-favorite series of the 80s and 90s leaves Hulu at the end of March. This includes the Tim Burton-helmed Batman and Return of Batman and the film directed by Joel Schumacher batman forever and batman and robin. Starring Michael Keaton, Val Kilmer, and George Clooney, respectively, the four films defined superhero movies for nearly a full decade.
The two films starring Keaton are widely hailed for changing the widespread public perception of the superhero, returning him to his darker roots compared to previous television adaptations of the character. batman forever toned down that approach to create a more family-friendly film, which went a little overboard with its sequel batman and robin. To capture the full cinematic breadth of Batman’s big-screen evolution over this four-movie run, this weekend is the last chance to bring them together on Hulu.
Atlanta is making a comeback
Four years have passed since Donald Glover’s famous comedy-drama series Atlanta launched its second season and the FX series is finally back for its third season. With new episodes available to stream the next day on Hulu after it airs on TV, Atlanta Season 3 is expected to be ten episodes long.
Atlanta Season 2 ended with Earn (Glover) embarking on a European tour with rapper Clark County, leaving behind his ex-girlfriend Van (Zazie Beetz) and their daughter Lottie. With Lottie placed in a gifted but expensive private school, Earn has a lot to answer for when they reunite. Atlanta has always been a clever commentary on deconstructing generalizations in its exploration of its character relationships, and it only gets deeper and more complicated in Season 3.
Mission: Impossible takes its global action elsewhere
While the seventh and eighth Impossible mission The films may have both been delayed by a year each, with the first four films in the popular action movie series set to leave Prime Video at the end of March. From the cerebral, super-stylish original 1997 movie mission: impossible 2 character Mission: Impossible 3 and Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, there’s something to love about every slice. the Impossible mission The series is Tom Cruise’s most successful in decades, and these four films are the perfect showcase of how it was endured.
One of the most striking things about the first four Impossible mission films is that they are each directed by a different director, which gives them a unique personality. As later filmmaker Christopher McQuarrie propelled the franchise in an acclaimed direction starting with his fifth installment Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, there’s something to celebrate about these distinctive sensibilities visible in each film. For a preview of this first run, this is the last week to do so via Prime Video.
The Prestige shoots a disappearing act on Prime Video
As a visionary filmmaker, Christopher Nolan prepares the production of his next film Oppenheimer, one of his most overlooked movies is set to leave Prime Video in late March. Made between episodes of his universally acclaimed Dark Knight Trilogy, the 2006 film Prestige adapts Christopher Priest’s novel of the same name. Set in London at the end of the 19th century, two magicians find themselves in a duel that will cost them everything.
Prestige stars Hugh Jackman and Christian Bale when both actors were perhaps at the peak of their powers, bolstered by Scarlett Johansson, Rebecca Hall, Michael Caine and a surprise appearance from David Bowie as Nikola Tesla. If there’s one Nolan movie that demands an immediate rewatch, it’s Prestige, given the twists and shocking ending. Before the time-consuming adventures and epics of World War II, Nolan really pulled out all the stops to Prestige.
