It’s the end of nearly two years of the pandemic, and many of us are staying indoors to avoid the spread of new variants like Omicron as well as to avoid the unpredictable weather of 2021.
If you are someone who hasn’t opened your HBO MAX app in a while, despite having the subscription, well, this is an excellent month to give it a shot. HBO Max is streaming some of the hottest movies that are being released in theatres at the same time, allowing you to watch them from the comfort and security of your own home.
THE MATRIX RESURRECTIONS
This highly anticipated fourth installment of The Matrix franchise reintroduces stars Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss to the Matrix — but this time, Neo and Trinity appear to be strangers.
The Matrix Resurrections, directed by Lana Wachowski, was released simultaneously on HBO Max and in theatres on December 22nd, 2021. But if you want to watch the streaming version, don’t wait too long — you only have 31 days (according to HBO Max) to do so.
THE MATRIX TRILOGY
Before you begin watching The Matrix Resurrections, you should really go to square one and re-watch The Matrix Trilogy: The original The Matrix (1999), The Matrix Reloaded (2003), and The Matrix Revolutions (2003).
Part family drama, part dark comedy, Succession follows Logan Roy, a fictional media and entertainment mogul, as his health deteriorates and he determines who among his children (or outsiders) has what it takes to run his billion-dollar company.
The show has just finished its third season with a masterful season finale, so you can binge-watch all three seasons to figure out what all the Succession dark jokes are all about.
8-Bit Christmas (2021) is a funny and heartwarming reminder of how much your Christmas present meant to your 10-year-old self. Jake Doyle (Neil Patrick Harris) tells his daughter about how he and his friends from a working-class suburb of Chicago tried to get the Nintendo Entertainment System for Christmas in 1988.
