The Last Dance is a TV mini-series starring Phil Jackson, Michael Jordan, and David Aldridge. Charting the rise of the 1990’s Chicago Bulls, led by Michael Jordan, one of the most notable dynasties in sports history.
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.
