It's the weekend, and that means you should book in another Gizmodo movie night. This week, it's all about crime — high stakes, ridiculous odds and absurd plans.
Samsung’s new range of SUHD TVs with Quantum Dot Display provide up to one billion colours, reproducing images with stunning realism.
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.
