10 best time travel movies you can watch right now


Is there anything more mind-bending than the concept of time travel?

It’s a sci-fi staple that goes hand-in-hand with so many complex theories and possibilities that it’s something of a double-edged sword in movies: the fictional possibilities are endless, but then so are those of plot holes.

Below are some of the best films about time travel — or that involve some element of time travel — that you can watch on your screens this very minute (or at some time in the future, if you prefer)… Read More

Amazon Prime Video rolls out Watch Party feature for movies with friends


Just a month after Hulu began testing an official ‘watch party’ feature, Amazon has decided to join the bandwagon.

The company today began rolling out a beta of the feature (US-only, for now) that allows up to 100 viewers to participate in synchronized playback of a TV show or movie. Playback is controlled by the host, and there’s a chat window that participants can communicate with. And because it’s 2020 and all, you can communicate in stickers too.

To start a watch party, simply head on over to the content you’d like to watch; you’ll see the watch party button right on the show or movie’s title. Read More

The 10 most entertaining video game movies


There are quite a handful of movies based on video games. Almost none of them are good.

Honestly, there are almost no films based on games that stand out above the rest. There are bad ones, and there are ones that are less bad, with maybe one or two exceptions depending on personal taste. Read More
