HBO Max does not yet have them all with it as an independent platform, but it still has some interesting recommendations in its October catalog.
We know it: HBO Max still holds great promise , particularly as everything concerning the Snyder Cut recording draws all the attention around the platform’s programming.
But while Zack Snyder finishes what seems – and we hope – is his masterpiece, the channel shows some novelties in its repertoire that make it clear that its intention is to transform its catalog into a large collection of the best of cinema and above all, with the best offer for nostalgic people on the market .
5 movies and a series for October on HBO Max:
Austin Powers: International Man Of Mystery, de Jay Roach (1997)
Comedian Mike Myers was the creator of a kind of grotesque, endearing and delusional character – yes, all at once – that marked a before and after in American comedy. Especially for its use of pop references and creating a whole new journey through the classic Slapstick.
In his purple suit, seductive mojo, and terrible teeth, Austin Powers demonstrated the power of a kind of cultural and social mockery that is still novel, despite distance and modern sensibilities. You can see it in the HBO Max catalog starting October 1.
Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me, de Jay Roach (1999)
Like any self-respecting box office success, Austin Powers returned to the cinema after a short and failed marriage to his beloved Vanessa (actress Elizabeth Hurley), to resume his work as the most disconcerting and mocking secret agent in cinema.
As a sequel, the script elevates the multi-role roles played by actor Mike Myers to a new dimension and plays on all the clichés of the movie’s spy agents. A guilty pleasure for moviegoers with a keen eye for references. Also premieres on October 1.
The Chronicles Of Riddick, (Director’s Cut) de David Twohy (2004)
The film that became a surprise success for Vin Diesel, had a review by its director that included several scenes of ultraviolence and high sexual content, which were eliminated from the first commercial cut that reached the cinema screens to obtain the rated PG – 13. Now, the film arrives just as Twohy envisioned it on October 1st on HBO Max.
Boogie Nights, de Paul Thomas Anderson (1997)
The story behind the world of American pornography comes in all its weird and harsh splendor, from the hand of one of the great contemporary directors.
Its frenzied, extravagant and raw tone is not only an almost anthropological journey through the shadows of the culture of a country obsessed with success, but also elaborates a strange version about the cultural status of pornography. A delight for movie lovers and even those who wish to analyze American society from a completely different point of view. You can see it from October 1.
Boomerang, de Reginald Hudlin (1992)
There was a time when Eddie Murphy was the king of American comedy. But like all regents, he didn’t seem entirely comfortable with the power underfoot, so he decided to start trying some new things.
Boomerang was the actor’s attempt to mix the comedy with something a bit more bitter and at some points, dramatic, without getting the mix to work. But in the end, it was an experiment that demonstrated Murphy’s histrionic ability and also how much his career could give. A promise still on hold. You can see it from October 1.
And a series
Susanne Bier’s The Undoing series explores the harsh moral and ethical implications of the story of therapist Grace Fraser (Nicole Kidman), who discovers that her husband could be responsible for a catastrophe.
With its lavish cast and especially its crude perception of loyalty and power tainted by corruption, the film is one of the season’s highlights for HBO Max. You can see it from October 25.
