In case I haven’t mentioned it before, Shudder is a godsend in terms of a streaming service. Between curating great previous films and franchises and shows (Channel Zero, I urge you to give a watch) but they also have original content and The Beach House is the latest great addition to their already stacked catalogue.
I’ve mentioned it before, but Cineplex is where I think I became who I am. It’s been my longest ongoing (and off) job. It’s where I’ve met most of my closest friends. And for the ones who didn’t work there, I met because of people who had. I have love for the company. For a while, Cineplex had been silent after George Floyd’s murder but a team helped curate films to elevate Black stories, artists and filmmakers. And right now, you can go and rent them for free on the Cineplex store app. Cineplex showed up to the conversation and are doing their part to make a statement in the conversation.
Here is the link for you to rent and watch the films. Don’t know where to start? We have some suggestions.
When I found out that there was an ultra-violent Home Alone starring Lulu Wilson (Ouija: Origin of Evil, and Haunting of Hill House) who beats up neo-nazis, one played by Kevin James. I immediately asked where do I sign up to watch this?
Dear… is one of the newest series to premiere on the still new and fresh Apple TV+ streaming service. I haven’t found time to dive into a lot of their programming, but I’m a massive fan of Mythic Quest, and even more so for their latest Quarantine episode. This brings us to one of our latest original programs, Dear… which is a docuseries that profiles game-changers.
You know what to do. Hit the jump, watch the trailer. I’ll give my two cents afterwards.
I’ll be honest, I’ve so far only seen trailers to many of Christopher Guest’s films, and even with that minimal knowledge, it’s clear that writer and director Laura Kosann loves his films. She decided to tackle a mockumentary about social media influencers. What Laura accomplishes is proving how infuriating they can be, and makes a statement on how the “selfie” generation kind of sucks.
Look at me being productive over here!
Did you get a chance to see The Invisible Man in theatres? If not, we might be able to help you out here.
At the end of 2017, Toronto held a Sofia Coppola retrospective at the Bell Lightbox (home of TIFF) and I made sure to see all of her films. I had previously seen Bling Ring and The Beguiled in cinemas so I made sure to watch the other four. I was more excited to see Lost In Translation once again, but also to see her third and fourth film on the big screen as my first time. But I knew I was in for all of it, so as I sat down waiting for Virgin Suicides, I wasn’t aware that everything could change.
I hope everyone is doing well as they can be during these strange times.
I had the chance to see Emma. right before theatres up here in Canada before they closed down.
Well, it’s official. I’m going to be at home for a bit longer than I expected. In the meanwhile, I’m planning on watching a lot of movies and writing a lot.
I’m going to try and cover a lot of the streaming services and talk about movies I think you should watch while you’re at home. So, let’s start with the obscure one (to some) shall we?
