Silvercar Makes Renting a Car Fast and Easy

Renting a car can be an archaic process, especially if you want to be in and out in a matter of minutes. Thank goodness that there’s Silvercar. The new car rental service puts not just ease into renting a car; it also gives renters an added touch of luxury.

“The idea of Silvercar was sparked by one too many frustrating experiences at the rental car counter,” said CEO Luke Schneider. “The founders were disgusted by the white minivan they had been ‘upgraded’ to for their cool guys golf weekend. With the fundamental realization that car rental hadn’t innovated in decades, and still couldn’t tell them something as basic as what kind of car they were getting, the concept of Silvercar was born.”

Are you wondering why Silvercar is more convenient than traditional car rental agencies? “Silvercar solves the two problems that have plagued car rental customers for decades: Never knowing what kind of car you’re going to get, and the hassle of lines, counters, up-sells and paperwork,” said Schneider. “With Silvercar you always know what car you’re going to get: a fully-loaded silver Audi A4 with a wi-fi hotspot, satellite radio and in-dash navigator included. The entire experience is orchestrated through our elegant, powerful mobile app with the help of our onsite concierge team.”

That sounds exactly like the kind of car rental we want next time we go on a weekend getaway. Using an app is so much easier than all those lines and paperwork. With locations in Austin, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Fort Lauderdale, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, Phoenix and San Francisco, and plans to expand into more markets, we suspect that the old way of renting cars will soon be a thing of the past. “We’re calling this the summer of Silvercar,” said Schneider. “We’ve set new records every single month as our customers take to the cities, highways, beaches and other destinations this summer. We launched Fort Lauderdale and Chicago in May and June and those markets are doing great.”

Ranked: All Christopher Nolan films
We've ranked every movie in Nolan's filmography from 13 all the way to number 1
Cillian Murphy in Oppenheimer

Christopher Nolan is one of the biggest brand-name directors in Hollywood thanks to his ambitious storytelling and totally distinctive filmography, which ranges from sci-fi to some truly terrific action movies. Since the age of 7 — when he created his own short films on his father’s Super 8 camera — Nolan has been fascinated with cinema.
His life is dedicated to creating worlds within worlds and keeping audiences guessing. Nolan seems to pour his heart and soul into every one of his films, which are somewhat miraculously released within two to three years of each other. What he's best known for, though, is his dense plotting, which he infuses with scientific theories, twisting them in ways that viewers have to pay close attention to understand. Nolan's latest work is a continuation of that trend, as he turns his eye toward J. Robert Oppenheimer, the inventor of the atomic bomb.
This list is a rundown of every film that Nolan has directed. What's more, as we delve into the creative process and beauty of Christopher Nolan movies, spoilers will definitely be involved, so you've been warned.

These are the best movies to watch on Peacock in July
Peacock is a TV service, but it also has a great catalog of movies to stream, too
Jack Black in Bernie.

A fun bit of historic TV trivia is that the original NBC peacock logo was first implemented in 1956 to highlight the network's new color programming. Even though the logo has gone through numerous iterations since then, the network has stuck with the colorful bird, in one form or another, for going on six decades now. It’s fitting, then, that Peacock is known most for its TV programming, highlighted by shows like The Office, Parks and Rec, and the self-mocking (and hilarious) 30 Rock. If you are on Peacock for the shows, however, don't overlook that the platform is also home to a number of great movies spanning cinema history, including everything from great comedy to excellent sports movies.

Peacock streaming offers both free (registered) and paid accounts. As a result, some Peacock movies are available without a paid subscription, and others only for subscribers. This roundup culls titles from both groups. To be sure you can access all of these classics, you'll have to fork over a subscription fee. Happy streaming, and keep reading to find the best movies on Peacock right now.

Hugh Jackman and Paul Dano in Prisoners

For well over two decades now, Hugh Jackman has been one of Hollywood's most defining movie stars. He's the kind of actor who can do it all: sing, dance, tear up on cue, shoot metal claws out of his hands, etc. Because of his vast array of talents, Jackman has had one of the most varied careers of any major star of his era. He was critical to the early success of the superhero trend, and that role has certainly defined how he's perceived by the public.
