HBO Max is the home of Zack Snyder’s Justice League, but if you are not a Snyder fan, let’s take a look at what other films the premium streamer has on offer. From recent flicks featuring the lockdown, to a monster bash-up worthy of catching in a cinema if it’s possible, HBO Max has an eclectic bag of star-studded originals.
Entertain your mind with the coolest information from flowing to superheroes, memes to video games.
Godzilla vs. Kong is only accessible for a month from March 31, so grab it while you can. The MonsterVerse film delivers pretty much just what you expect: 2 legendary behemoths punching each other, with little respect for a great plot or memorable human characters. Luckily, if you’re following city-toppling action, manager Adam Wingard provides dazzling views that stick you right up near the spectacle. With a dash of bizarre sci-fi and a few laughs, this crowd-pleaser provides a more than decent night in.
Aka The Snyder Cut. This one is for the droves of Zack Snyder fans who campaigned for the manager to get another shot at ending Justice League, after he was forced to leave before completion as a result of personal tragedy. In stepped Joss Whedon, however, the 2017 theatrical version was a critical and box office failure. Now, a four-hour Snyder director’s cut is ready on HBO Max, using a ton of new scenes, a few new villains and the spectacular epilogue. If you are on board with Snyder’s slo-mo style, it’s well worth checking out his unusually distinct original vision.
Whether you prefer this or not likely hinges on how much you like Seth Rogen. You are getting a good deal of him he stars in two characters in An American Pickle, first playing Herschel Greenbaum, a struggling Jewish laborer who emigrates to America in 1919. He finds work at a pickle factory — which is where things get weird — falls into a vat of pickles that preserves him 100 years. He wakes up in 2019 Brooklyn and hangs out with his great-grandson Ben, also played by Seth Rogen. If you adopt this creative premise, then this is a great low-key humor for the smaller display using some impressive chemistry between Rogen and Rogen.
This really is a sweet little stone on HBO Max. Unpregnant celebrities Haley Lu Richardson and Barbie Ferreira as a friend duo crossing states to where pregnant adolescent Veronica (Richardson) can find an abortion. Yes, it’s about the issue of pro-choice, together with Veronica’s parents refusing to give her consent to have the abortion. However, it also slots to the crucial gear of all road-trip films, depicting a gorgeous friendship between the two leads.
