I’ve never been a big fan of the NBA (I much prefer NCAA basketball where there tends to be considerably more defense), but in the 1990s I was very much a fan of Michael Jordan. This ESPN documentary (currently available on Netflix in the United States) is a fascinating look back at Jordan’s career and (what we thought was) his final season and NBA Finals run in 1998.

In a future where a failed climate-change experiment has killed all life except for the lucky few who boarded the Snowpiercer, a train that travels around the globe, a new class system emerges.
An absolutely extraordinary film.
I’m not sure how I missed this when it was released in 2013. In fact, I didn’t know the film existed until a few months ago when I heard that a television series named Snowpiercer was coming to TNT. When I further researched the show, I learned it was based on a film, which itself is based on a French graphic novel.
If you’re a fan of dystopian science fiction, actor Chris Evans, or director Bong Joon Ho (Parasite), I highly recommend watching the film. It’s currently streaming on Netflix.
