7 amazing sci-fi movies leaving HBO Max in September 2021

“The future’s already there. It’s irrevocable.”

7. Reminiscence

September 19

Taking cues from classic noir and Inception, sci-fi thriller Reminiscence is set in a world ravaged by climate change. In the future, technology lets people relive their memories — sometimes finding secrets they’d rather forget.

6. Doctor Sleep

September 20

The sequel to The Shining is more invested in the mechanics of its central superpower/curse than the original. Doctor Sleep doesn’t come close to The Shining’s heights but still works as both mystery and horror.
