Magic Mike

From heist movies to Magic Mike, these are the 15 best movies from No Sudden Move director Steven Soderburgh.

“In 2013, filmmaker Steven Soderbergh retired from directing movies. During his brief time off from the theatrical film business, he helmed every episode of an acclaimed television series (The Knick), directed an off-Broadway production (The Library), published a novella on Twitter (Glue), and even began importing and selling his own brand of Bolivian liquor (Singani 63). Clearly, the guy likes to stay busy, always seeking out the next creative challenge to take on or the latest artistic puzzle to solve.”

Let’s remember the legacy left by the iconic The Goonies, Superman, and Lethal Weapon film director Richard Donner.

“Richard Donner, the famed director of Superman, The Goonies, The Omen, and the Lethal Weapon series, died on Monday. He was 91. A Warner Bros. spokesman confirmed Donner’s death, but did not reveal the cause. Steven Spielberg, executive producer of the 1985 hit The Goonies, released a statement praising Donner, saying he “had such a powerful command of his movies, and was so gifted across so many genres. Being in his circle was akin to hanging out with your favorite coach, smartest professor, fiercest motivator, most endearing friend, staunchest ally, and — of course — the greatest Goonie of all.”‘

David Harbour wants Red Guardian to fight Anthony Mackie’s Captain America, and we’re all here for it.

“Would he have an accent? What tattoos would he have? What martial arts would he study? Is his Black Widow character, the devoted Russian super-soldier Alexei Shostakov (aka, Red Guardian), actually a good dad? There was a lot of work to be done,” Harbour, 46, tells Inverse over Zoom. In becoming one of the most important supporting characters in Marvel’s Black Widow, Harbour carved out an arrogant failed father who dwells in memories of his faded glory rather than working for a better future.”

How can we not talk about family when family’s all that we’ve got? The best Fast and Furious family-filled memes.

“There is nothing stronger than family. That’s what Dom Toretto teaches us in The Fast and the Furious franchise. While the Toretto’s (Mia and Dom) are siblings, the entire franchise is about finding your family and standing with each other and doing whatever it takes to protect your family. And that kind of love and dedication to one another is powerful—so powerful that it can probably take on just about anyone, Thanos included.”

Is Nintendo is finally giving fans the upgrades to the Switch they’ve been asking for? Maybe not…

“Today, in a surprise move from the house of Mario, Nintendo has just announced that the new Nintendo Switch (OLED model) will be arriving this fall on October 8. Previously, when Nintendo didn’t say anything about a new Switch at E3, a lot of people (including myself) thought that meant Nintendo wouldn’t release its long-rumored upgraded Switch this year. But I can admit when I wrong, and even though the new OLED Switch doesn’t have a “Pro” label, it does come with a lot of upgraded features long-time Switch fans have been dreaming about for quite some time.”
