The 10 hottest movies everyone is streaming right now – is your favorite on the list?

2 hours 35 min ago

As much as President Trump loves to fire broadsides and to weigh in on big cultural topics of the moment when he feels like the direction is not sufficiently pro-America, it was probably inevitable that he would chime in at some point on The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences awarding the "Best Picture" Oscar this year to Parasite. That's the film, as everyone probably knows by now, which made history earlier this month by becoming the first non-English language film in the 92-year history of the Oscars to win the top prize of the night. The movie, directed by Bong Joon-ho, is a black comedy and satire that focuses on class warfare, and there's still such pent-up demand for the film that it's been digitally remastered and is back in theaters for a one-week IMAX run.

Of course, President Trump is not having it. During a campaign rally in Colorado, the president tore into Parasite thus: “By the way, how bad were the Academy Awards this year?” he asked the crowd rhetorically, ginning up a chorus of a boos.  “The winner is a movie from South Korea. What the hell was that all about? We’ve got enough problems with South Korea, with trade. And after all that, they give them best movie of the year?”

Astronomers are watching an exoplanet die right before their eyes

Sat, 02/22/2020 - 21:08

Detecting the presence of a new exoplanet hundreds of light-years away is always exciting for astronomers, but not all newly-discovered planets are created equal. Some are undeniably more interesting than others, and the planet known as NGTS-10b is most certainly one of the more intriguing worlds scientists have found.

The planet isn't Earth-like or promising for life, but it does happen to be orbiting its star at an incredibly short distance. In fact, it completes an entire orbit of its start in a mere 18 hours. It's a gas giant, making it a so-called "hot Jupiter," but it might not be around for long. As researchers explain in a new paper published in Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society, the planet may be dying even as we speak.

This is the most annoying thing about Netflix

Sat, 02/22/2020 - 20:17

Netflix may be a great streaming service to have around and even pay for despite the inevitable price hikes, but it can also be incredibly annoying at times. The best example is the autoplaying ads on the home page that used to drive me crazy until Netflix finally found it in its heart to give users an option to turn them off for good.

Then there's the inevitable "what to watch" scroll of death that can go on for minutes without end — that's a byproduct that we have to live with, however, so I don't mind it that much. Then there's the problem with the Continue Watching list: It's far too difficult to remove content from it. Now, it turns out that Netflix has found a frustrating new way to annoy me. The service has started sending me emails urging me to remember to finish shows and movies that I started and then abandoned.

Make your ratty old bed as fluffy as a cloud with mattress toppers from $45, today only

Sat, 02/22/2020 - 19:26

No matter how many times you read about it online or see specials about it on TV, most people still don't seem to appreciate how important it is to get a good night's sleep. Forget the simple benefits of feeling rested and more energized every day, there are also tons of other benefits like increased focus and even improved brain function.

If you don't get a full night's sleep as often as you should, there are countless things that could be the cause. A lot of times, however, it boils down to the quality of your sleep environment. If you're using a sweat-stained pillow that you got two years ago and sleeping on the same discount-store mattress you bought a decade ago from a furniture warehouse that was going out of business, you're doomed before you even lie down. What you might not realize, however, is that you don't need to spend hundreds on a new mattress to improve your situation.

Amazon is running a big one-day sale on top-rated mattress toppers that can instantly convert even the rattiest old mattress into a fluffy paradise. Prices start at just $44.99 for a Twin size mattress topper with more than 2,100 5-star ratings, and the best-selling Queen size version is down to $55.99 from $70.

The biggest Marvel mystery left after ‘Avengers: Endgame’ is about to be solved

Sat, 02/22/2020 - 18:35

Avengers: Endgame is so good that you’ll have an amazing time watching it without seeing any of the 21 movies that preceded it. But it’s far more enjoyable to watch after you catch up with all the other MCU adventures. Not only will Endgame make a lot more sense, but you’ll appreciate all the incredible Easter Eggs Marvel managed to squeeze into the flick. Going forward, you’ll have to subscribe to Disney+ to get the same fantastic MCU experience, and that’s because more than half of the upcoming MCU stories will be told with the help of limited TV series. All the Disney+ shows will tie into the six movies that have been confirmed for Phase 4, and they'll feature the same great characters and actors you’re used to seeing in MCU films.

Of all the new Disney+ Marvel series that will soon hit the streaming service, we’ve been focusing on the first three, but not solely because they're the ones that have started production. These series will deliver a few essential plot twists, and one of them will explain the biggest mystery left after Endgame.

‘Vivarium’ and all the new movie trailers you need to watch from this past week

Sat, 02/22/2020 - 15:01

It should have been a busy weekend over in Barcelona, Spain, with several big companies unveiling their latest mobile devices, but then the coronavirus struck, prompting the organizers to cancel the Mobile World Congress. It would have been a frantic weekend of running around from meeting to meeting, with hardly any time to dedicate to Hunters. Because yes, that’s the brand new show to binge right now, over on Amazon Prime. It’s that Al Pacino TV series about a group of Nazi hunters who’re hunting Nazi’s in the US in the late ‘70s.

Now, if you’re planning on hitting theaters, you should be aware of a couple of new releases, including The Call of the Wild, which is my favorite this weekend, a survival story starring Karen Gillan and Harrison Ford. If you into horror stories, then you might be more interested in Brahms: The Boy II. Then, there’s always Sonic, who swept up the box office last week, and is likely to hold on to the lead for at least one more weekend.

Dyson is dead to me now that I’ve tried this Bissell vacuum, and it’s on sale today at its lowest price

Sat, 02/22/2020 - 14:00

Like most people out there, I have been a big fan of Dyson vacuums for as long as I can remember. Actually, I should probably say I had been a big fan of Dyson vacuums. I still marvel at how powerful Dyson's motors are on its cordless stick vacuums, but I've dumped Dyson and I'm never going back. Why? It's because I found something so much better, and for far less money than the $600 or $700 you'll pay for a brand new Dyson.

The Bissell ICONpet Cordless Stick Vacuum Cleaner is definitely my new favorite vacuum. In fact, it might be my new favorite thing, period. I have a dog who sheds constantly and this cordless stick vacuum tears through pet hair like it's nothing. Seriously, it's crazy how my dog's long hair never tangles in the brush roll in the intake like it always did with my Dyson.

Beyond performance, there are three more reasons to choose this model over a Dyson, and the first two are beyond simple: the battery life is awesome, and it has a light. You won't believe all the dirt, dust, crumbs, and pet hair you miss when you use a vacuum without a bright LED light bar like the one on this vacuum. Second, it's so much less expensive than a Dyson — especially today while it's on sale at an all-time low of just $187.99 for one day only. This model retails for $350 and it's worth every penny, so don't miss this deal.

BISSELL ICONpet Cordless Stick Vacuum Cleaner (22889): $187.99

Here's more from the product page:

  • A large brush roll with specially engineered bristles and powerful suction ensures pet hair stays off the brush roll and goes straight into the tank without wrapping
  • CleanSlide Technology, an engineered system to remove debris from the separator, provides a mess-free empty, so there’s no clean up after the cleanup
  • Smart Seal Allergen System is a sealed system that helps trap fine dust and allergens inside the vacuum
  • Power through pet hair with a Motorized TurboBrush Tool and Lighted LED Crevice Tool + Dusting Brush
  • Illuminate dirt throughout your home as you clean
  • For charging and storing your ICONpet Cordless Vacuum
  • BISSELL is proud to offer our best cordless pet hair management system floor care device for homes with pets and families. ICON pet Cordless is designed for pets and engineered for power. This cordless vacuum comes with a High-Powered Digital Motor and 22v lithium-ion battery that together provide a faster and easier way to vacuum your entire home and car. Forget about that annoying hair wrap around the brush roll. Our innovative Tangle-Free Brush Roll leaves no hair wrap behind. The machine also lays flat to clean under beds and couches with remarkably bright LED lights on the vacuum’s foot to help you see pet hair and other debris that are easy to miss in the dark. ICON pet Cordless quickly converts into a hand high-reach vacuum. Plus, it works with specialized pet tools to clean messes anywhere your pet goes. And when you’re done cleaning, emptying the dirt tank is a cinch without Mess Free Empty Dirt Tank with Clean Slide Technology.
  • When you purchase this product, you can help us save pets. BISSELL will donate $25 for each purchase of this pet product to BISSELL Pet Foundation. Donations can be activated at BISSELL/save pets. This year, we’re committed to donating at least $1,000,000 to BISSELL Pet Foundation. And, we’re proud to design products that help make pet messes, odors and pet homelessness disappear. *Tested per tangle free protocol BTP0251-A with hair length 6-8“. **BISSELL donates up to $25 dollars to the BISSELL Pet Foundation for every pet product purchase, upon activation.

Everything you need to know about two of the most popular Amex cards on the market

Sat, 02/22/2020 - 08:02

BGR has partnered with The Points Guy for our coverage of credit card products. BGR and The Points Guy may receive a commission from card issuers.

Please note: the offers mentioned below are subject to change at any time and some may no longer be available.

More often than not, I find myself trying to book a Delta flight whenever I travel, both to continue to rack up SkyMiles since I'm a member of the airline's loyalty program but also because I've found it to just offer a better overall experience. Don't get me wrong, I'm a sucker for those sweet low fares offered by Southwest, another airline I'll jump at the chance to fly with. But because it's a smaller airline and tends to fly to fewer destinations, I don't always have the opportunity to book with Southwest (and do the awkward pre-flight lineup, a gripe for another day). All that said, for a Delta loyalist like me, it's a small step from there to looking around for a solid co-branded card that can give me extra value for this relationship I've voluntarily entered into. There are certainly plenty out there, and if you've never dipped a toe into the world of rewards-based credit cards before, you don't know what you're missing. It's the difference between a piece of plastic that you use to make purchases and hits you with interest for carrying a balance, versus a card that offsets all that with a grab bag of perks and rewards, from free checked bags to priority boarding, bonus points that can be exchanged for miles and so much more.

What I'd like to zero in on in this post is a look at two cards that Delta loyalists like myself often find themselves weighing against each other when they're researching all the various cards that are out there. One of them is the Delta SkyMiles® Reserve American Express Card, regarded as the premiere co-branded Delta consumer card. However, you'll often hear other people insist that The Platinum Card® from American Express is actually the better card for Delta flyers. Today, we’ll dive in to see which of these two cards is the best card for you.

Feast your eyes on the first set photos of Robert Pattinson as ‘The Batman’

Sat, 02/22/2020 - 06:41

Batman fans and everyone else eager to get another taste of what Robert Pattinson will bring to the DC franchise next year -- when he formally dons the Dark Knight's cape and cowl, taking over for Ben Affleck -- have been rewarded with a collection of leaked set images and video taken from the set of The Batman, which is due to hit theaters in the summer of 2021.

The fresh leaks follow the camera test that director Matt Reeves shared on Twitter earlier this month, in which Pattinson was seen for the first time in the new design for the Caped Crusader. The new images have purportedly been spurring Warner Bros. to try and get the Twitter accounts suspended of anyone caught sharing these images, which were apparently shot at the Glasgow Necropolis cemetery in Scotland, per Variety. Read on to see a sampling of these images, including a glimpse of a stuntman wearing the Batman outfit and riding what looks like the Batcycle.

PS5 and Xbox Series X are both guaranteed to be at this event

Sat, 02/22/2020 - 05:09

This has been a rough week for gaming fans excited about the next generation of home consoles. Not only did the seven-year anniversary of the PlayStation 4 reveal event come and go without a peep about the PS5, but Sony also announced that it would be pulling out of both PAX East and the 2020 Game Developers Conference due to concerns about the coronavirus outbreak. We have no idea whether this will affect the long-awaited reveal of the console or not, but we do know that we shouldn't expect to hear any official news from either of those events.

Sony had also previously stated that it would be skipping E3 for the second year in a row, but it sounds like we might finally have confirmation of an event where both next-generation consoles will be on hand.

Cable TV’s subscriber losses in 2019 dwarfed the population of Los Angeles

Sat, 02/22/2020 - 03:37

"The media industry is finally facing that long-feared moment of accelerating cord-cutting.”

That's one of the it-should-go-without-saying highlights of a new research note published this week from Wall Street analyst firm MoffettNathanson, the big takeaway from which is that the cable TV industry continues its long, slow process of bleeding out thanks to being gutshot from cord-cutters. 2019, according to the new report, was another watershed year for the industry, with subscriber losses hitting 6 million over the course of the year -- a decline of 7% compared to 2018.

We all know what's driving this trend. Cable service sucks. The prices are too high and keep rising. Customers are also constantly subjected to trickery, hidden fees, and other bits of subterfuge so that a dying industry can keep squeezing a little more money out of the customers who remain. There's also something else, though.

How Android 11 might fix one of the worst things about Android’s gesture navigation

Sat, 02/22/2020 - 02:05

Google just dropped the first Android 11 Developer Preview build a few weeks earlier than anticipated, and people have already started digging through it for new features and clues of what the upcoming Pixel 5 will have to offer. Android 11 already revealed that the Pixel 5 might support reverse wireless charging, a feature that’s already found on a few competing devices, as well as proof that the Motion Sense Soli radar isn’t going away any time soon.

A brand new revelation, meanwhile, seems to have unearthed a new gesture that Google is working on which could actually be actually useful on any phone, not just the Pixel 5.

Sony’s PS5 might be in trouble when it’s first released

Sat, 02/22/2020 - 00:33

While it remains to be seen when Sony will officially release the highly anticipated PS5, not everyone believes that the company's next-gen gaming console will be a home run. Sure, the device will undeniably be incredibly popular and will ship millions of units, but one analyst maintains that the PS5 may not be able to live up to the success Sony enjoyed with the 2013 release of the PS4.

To this point, analyst Hideki Yasuda of the Ace Research Institute believes that Sony will ship upwards of 6 million units during the first four months following its release. Keep in mind that Yasuda's estimate here is for units shipped, not units sold. As a point of reference, Sony sold 7.5 million PS4 units during the first four months following its release.

Google has already updated its brand new Google Maps redesign

Fri, 02/21/2020 - 23:01

It was just days ago that Google unveiled a brand new Google Maps design in celebration of the app's 15th anniversary. The redesign is meant to offer a cleaner interface, with the most important change concerning the bottom menu. Google removed one of the previous items, replacing it with three tabs to better serve users.

It turns out, however, that Google's user interface makeover wasn't good enough, and the company is making one more important change to the bottom menu.

10 movies to watch on Netflix before they’re removed in March

Fri, 02/21/2020 - 22:01

Every once in a while, Netflix loses a bunch of blockbuster movies all at once, and that is, unfortunately, the case for the month of March. The biggest blow has to be the loss of Black Panther, which is finally joining the vast majority of the other Marvel Cinematic Universe movies on Disney+ next month. Slowly but surely, Disney is completing its full collection of Marvel movies (but it's going to be a bit before Infinity War joins the party).

Two other major losses are that of The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers and The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King. As most of you know, these are two of the best fantasy epics in movie history, and seeing the entire trilogy taken off of Netflix is a bummer. Return of the King was nominated for 11 Academy Awards and won all of them, including Best Picture, making it the first fantasy movie to win the most coveted award in film.

The cheaper Nintendo Switch is getting a new color option, and preorders just went live on Amazon

Fri, 02/21/2020 - 21:32

The Nintendo Switch has been nothing short of a smash hit for Nintendo, with cumulative sales that have already topped the SNES and climbed north of 52 million units. Unlike the Wii U that was an absolute flop for Nintendo, the Switch doesn't try to recapture the magic of the original Nintendo Wii. Instead, it creates its own unique magic thanks to a convertible design that allows gamers to "switch" between using a portable console and a home console. Of course, mobile is the way of the world these days, so what happens for gamers who never plan to connect the Switch to a TV?

That's exactly why Nintendo came up with the Switch Lite, a stripped-down version of the Switch that eliminates the convertible aspect and slashes a whopping 30% off the price — instead of costing $300 like the regular Switch, the Nintendo Switch Lite is only $199.99.

Nintendo initially released the Lite model in three different colors, and they're all top sellers. Now, Nintendo is adding a fourth color to its lineup — Coral — and it just because available for preorder on Amazon. It's set to be released on April 3, so you don't have long at all to wait. If you don't preorder one though, there's a good chance you'll have trouble finding one on the release date.

Is the Switch Lite right for you? If you only plan to use your Switch as a portable console, then you can definitely use the Lite version. It still plays the same games and you can still connect multiple Joy-Cons for multiplayer gaming, but you'll save $100 that can be better spent on new Switch games and accessories. It's an awesome console set to be released in an awesome new color, so definitely check it out.

Nintendo Switch Lite - Coral

  • For every member of your family, there's a member of ours
  • Optimized for personal, handheld play, Nintendo Switch Lite is a small and light Nintendo Switch system

If you'd rather get the full Switch experience — with a model that, you know, "switches" — you'll be happy to know that the regular Nintendo Switch is in stock right now on Amazon as well. It's actually a great time to pick one up because tons of popular Switch games are on sale right now on Amazon at discounts up to $40!
