New on Netflix UK February 2021

New on Netflix UK February 2021
A couple of things have caught our eye in February’s Netflix UK line-up, first, the German dystopian sci-fi Tribes of Europa. After the success of sci-fi series Dark, the streaming service invested in a bunch of new German-language series, including the mega-successful historical Barbarians. Tribes was among them, and tells the story of a group of siblings in 2074, separated after a global disaster that leaves Europe riven by warring factions. Also sounding like a good time is South Korean comedy Space Sweepers, about a spaceship crew tasked with cleaning up intergalactic trash.

There’s also the arrival of Parks and Recreation in full – perfect for a lockdown rewatch, new stand-up, all of The Vampire Diaries, and Jason “It’s a megalodon” Statham in The Meg.

We’ll update this list with new arrivals as they’re confirmed.

Roberto Benigni in ‘Pinocchio’: Matteo Garrone’s Daring New Interpretation of a Fairytale Classic

Roberto Benigni in ‘Pinocchio’: Matteo Garrone’s Daring New Interpretation of a Fairytale Classic
Photo: ‘Pinocchio’/01 Distribution ‘Pinocchio’: A Fairytale Classic ‘Pinocchio’, an 1883 children’s novel written by Italian author Carlo Collodi, is a touchstone of world literature. Its influence can be seen in films from ‘A.I.: Artificial Intelligence’ to ‘Shrek’. Even Rian Johnson’s recent whodunnit ‘Knives Out’ references the classic tale, in the form of a heroine who vomits whenever she tells a lie. ‘Pinocchio’ has become quite a hot commodity in recent years. The Walt Disney Company, whose definitive 1940 adaptation is perhaps the only version with which American audiences are intimately familiar, has a live-action update in the works, with Tom Hanks playing Geppetto and uncanny valley-enthusiast Robert Zemeckis directing. Meanwhile, a Jim Henson Company production directed by Guillermo del Toro, planned since 2008, has been announced by Netflix for a 2021 release. Appropriately for a story considered to be a hallmark of Italian literature, an Italian production has beaten both of

The 10 Best Movies Produced By Amblin Entertainment, Ranked (According To Rotten Tomatoes)

The Best Films About Mortality

The Best Films About Mortality
One day, you will die. It may not be tomorrow––as the characters in Amy Seimetz’s vivid, unsettling new feature She Dies Tomorrow believe––but it’s a universal truth for us all. To celebrate the film’s release, or at least cope with corporeal impermanence, we’ve shared our favorite films that explore mortality.

A handful of the below selections may comfort you as we collectively march into the sweet embrace of death, others provide a distressing glimpse at our body’s demise, and some explore all that humanity can offer––a feat which poses the question of what one is doing with their time before shuffling off this mortal coil.

A.I. Artificial Intelligence (Steven Spielberg)

In thinking about mortality, it’s often zooming out to the big picture and mysteries of our galaxy that can induce the most existential of questions. Steven Spielberg understood this with grand

Marty Cohen Dies: Longtime Editor & Post-Production Exec For Spielberg, Amblin, DreamWorks & More Was 67
Marty Cohen, a longtime editor and post-production chief who worked on more than a dozen Steven Spielberg films for Amblin and DreamWorks and whose producing credits include such hits as The Hunger Games and Godzilla, has died. He was 67.

An Amblin spokesperson said Cohen died May 17 of natural causes after a long battle with heart disease.

Cohen left the Big Apple and after being in L.A. for only a year, he quit for two reasons: one, he didn’t like working for a courier company; and two, it wasn’t movies.

He began his four-decade career in movies as a P.

‘Minority Report’ and the Ending You Want to See
I had Minority Report wrong. When you look at it in the context of Steven Spielberg‘s overall filmography, the film’s ending seems like it follows in the footsteps of movies like Schindler’s ListSaving Private Ryan, and even A.I. Artificial Intelligence. Spielberg is a director who doesn’t really go for ambiguous endings and wants to give the audience a feeling of hope even in the face of humanity’s darkest impulses, and so …

At just 19 years old, Joey King earned an Emmy nomination for Best Movie/Mini Actress for her role in the Hulu anthology series “The Act.” But she’s actually not the first member of her family to make the cut at the Emmys. Her older sister Hunter King has two trophies on her mantel for her work in daytime TV as Summer Newman on “The Young and the Restless.”

Artificial Intelligence.” She got a big break in 2012 (when she was still a teenager) by joining the cast of “Y&r” as Summer Newman, the daughter of Phyllis (Michelle Stafford) and Nick (Joshua Morrow).
