Netflix Sci-Fi Movies That Deserve More Attention
Korean language films like "Memories of Murder" and "The Host" remain acclaimed director, Bong Joon-ho’s best films, but don’t underestimate "Okja." It perfectly captures the contradictions of late-stage capitalism, setting the language of Ted Talks and Whole Foods against the cold, harsh reality of money changing hands.
Drifting Home
"Drifting Home" isn't quite as finely honed as the masterful "Pokémon: Twilight Wings" from the same studio, but as an original film by an exciting and still-evolving studio like Studio Colorido, it's worth supporting. It’s a unique take on the genre in the nostalgia and decay of postwar 1960s danchi apartment complexes.
Mitchells vs. Machines
"The Mitchells vs. The Machines" is Sony Pictures Animation’s first real post-"Spider-Verse" movie, although there is more to the story than that. The movie transcends imploring the audience to "put down their phones" by channeling the protagonist's spirit of goofy, compassionate art-making in every frame.
Space Sweepers
"Space Sweepers" needs no introduction as it overcame the handicap of a theatrical release thwarted by the pandemic lockdowns to become the number one movie on Netflix across sixteen countries. It's a story of scrappy junk haulers finding common ground to fight back against corporate overlords.
