April 2022 highlights

Apollo 10 1/2: A Space Age Childhood (Movie)

Writer-director Richard Linklater returns to the rotoscoped form of animation he previously explored with his films Waking Life and A Scanner Darkly in the far more kid-friendly film Apollo 10 1/2: A Space Age Childhood. Inspired by his own childhood in Houston, Texas during the 1960s, Linklater imagines a secret Apollo mission to let a kid do a 'dry run' of the moon landing before the big event. And yes, it looks as charming as it sounds.

Luxe Listings Sydney: Season 2 (TV series)

Metal Lords (Movie)

Metalheads, get ready to raise your horns to the air, because Netflix's new original film Metal Lords is here to put heavy metal back in the spotlight. This coming of age comedy, from the creators of Game of Thrones and Harold and Kumar (quite the combination), sees a group of misfit high school teens put their differences aside to enter the local Battle of the Bands.

The Kardashians (TV series)

If you've been missing your regular fix of Kim, Khloe, Kourtney and the rest of the gang since the end of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, you'll be glad to know that they're back once again with an entirely new Disney Plus original series! Simply titled The Kardashians, the new show seems a lot like the old one based on the trailer above, which is a plus for fans.

Outer Range (TV series)

Most likely driven by the popularity of Paramount's Yellowstone, Amazon has its own ranch-set series on the way with the Wyoming-based Outer Range. Similarities in setting aside, Outer Range appears to be an entirely different beast, with a clear mystery-thriller vibe that seems to dabble in some science fiction elements. Either way, this Josh Brolin-starring series looks incredibly intriguing.

Roar (TV series)

Nicole Kidman, Issa Rae, Alison Brie and a host of other talented ladies star in Roar, an anthology series which tells eight outrageous, genre-bending stories through the eyes of their female protagonists. Roar comes to us from the creators of the (unjustly cancelled) Netflix series GLOW, which should give you a pretty good indication of what to expect in terms of tone.

All The Old Knives (Movie)

Chris Pine and Thandiwe Newton star in All The Old Knives, a modern-day espionage thriller that's packed to the brim with secrets and intrigue. The film follows Henry (Pine), a CIA agent who's been tasked with trying to determine whether his ex-flame Celia (Newton) is a double agent.

Better Call Saul (TV series)

Returning for its final outing after an interminably long break between seasons, Better Call Saul will finally tie up all of the loose ends connecting it to Breaking Bad, whether we like it or not. Bob Odenkirk, who suffered a near-fatal heart attack during filming last year, gets the opportunity to send his classic character Saul Goodman home with a bang – we just hope things turn out well for Kim (Rhea Seehorn).

Russian Doll: Season 2 (TV series)

Netflix's excellent series Russian Doll returns for its highly-anticipated second season this month, continuing the story of Nadia Vulvokov (Natasha Lyonne), a cynical New Yorker who finds herself stuck in a time loop. We're keen to see how the show's second season picks up, given the way that the first season ended in [SPOILER ALERT] two different timelines.

The Flight Attendant: Season 2 (TV series)

Kaley Cuoco gave a truly outstanding performance in the first season of The Flight Attendant, which saw her alcoholic character Cassie attempt to piece together a drunken night which resulted in her waking up next to a dead man. This season, it seems Cassie finds herself in the middle of an entirely new mystery when she takes on a "part-time job" as amateur private investigator/spy.

They Call Me Magic (4-part docuseries)

Well, between Apple's new docuseries They Call Me Magic, and Binge's Magic Johnson-centric show Winning Time: The Rise of the Lakers Dynasty, everything's coming up Magic in 2022! This four-part series explores the life of Earvin 'Magic' Johnson, one of the greatest basketball players in history, whose life went in an entirely different (but equally important) direction following his HIV diagnosis in the early '90s.

Gaslit (TV series)

Starring Academy Award winners Julia Roberts and Sean Penn, Gaslit aims to shed new light on the Watergate scandal which led to the resignation of US president Richard Nixon in 1974.

We Own The City (TV series)

Fans of The Wire rejoice, because creator David Simon, along with frequent collaborator George Pelecanos (The Deuce), are back with a new limited series that once again explores the ongoing drug war in Baltimore – only this time from a slightly different angle. We Own This City follows the rise of the Baltimore Police Department's Gun Trace Task Force, and its fall due to corruption. Starring Jon Bernthal (The Punisher) and several familiar faces from The Wire, We Own This City looks like another classic in the making.

The hidden cost of food delivery

Noah Lichtenstein Contributor Share on Twitter Noah Lichtenstein is the founder and managing partner of Crossover , a diversified private technology fund backed by institutional investors, technology execs and professional athletes and entertainers. More posts by this contributor What Studying Students Teaches Us About Great Apps I’ll admit it: When it comes to food, I’m lazy. There are dozens of great dining options within a few blocks of my home, yet I still end up ordering food through delivery apps four or five times per week. With the growing coronavirus pandemic closing restaurants and consumers self-isolating, it is likely we will see a spike in food delivery much like the 20% jump China reported during the peak of its crisis. With the food delivery sector rocketing toward a projected $365 billion by the end of the decade, I’m clearly not the only one turning to delivery apps even before the pandemic hit. Thanks to technology (and VC funding) we can get a ri

Technics EAH-AZ60 review: Contending in stunning fashion

Technics serves notice that everyone should notice these earbuds. Technics ventured into the wireless earbuds category to go after the big dogs in the race. Think of the likes of Sony, Bose, and Sennheiser on sound quality, as well as the best you can find on design and functionality. It's a combination that comes at a price, but if done right, it gets easier to justify spending more. That's the case Technics makes with its EAH-Z60 earbuds. Its newest pair aims to take what the company has done in the past and make it even better. The results are easy to like and are significant enough to consider them as serious contenders.

iOS 14 Favorites Widget: How to Make a Replacement With Shortcuts

In iOS 14 , Apple overhauled widgets and introduced an option for adding ‌widgets‌ to the Home Screen , but in the process, a well-loved Favorites widget that existed in iOS 13 was removed. The Favorites widget let users set certain contacts and contact methods as favorites that were easily accessible, so you could, for example, add a favorite option for messaging Eric or calling Dan, with those actions executed with a tap. Why the Favorites widget was removed is a mystery and it could be a simple oversight with Apple planning to reintroduce it later, but for now, those who relied on the widget can recreate its functionality with Shortcuts. It takes some effort, but it may be worth the time investment if you often relied on your Favorites. Creating a Favorites Shortcut Making a shortcut that replicates the behavior of the Favorites widget isn't too tough, but if you want multiple favorite options, you'll need to create a separate shortcut for each one in the Shortcuts
