It’s almost the weekend, and that means you should book in another Gizmodo movie night. You don’t always get it right the first time — so this week, we’re bringing you 15 examples where Hollywood had another crack at it — for better or worse!
We’ve re-jigged our existing Netflix Movie Night series, and brought in Australia’s other popular subscription video on demand services — Presto and Stan — to give you a broader selection of movies and TV shows to enjoy. On all three services, you can watch from your tablet or smartphone, on your PC or laptop, through your Smart TV, or through a media streaming dongle like the Google Chromecast, although specifics can vary.
