Martin Scorsese Silence streaming

(Welcome to Now Stream This, a column dedicated to the best movies streaming on Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, and every other streaming service out there.) 

Happy Holidays, I guess. As we wind down the clock on this garbage year, let us take time to appreciate the few good things in life: movies. Where would we be without movies? The answer, I think, is the grave. Or maybe I’m exaggerating. Either way, there’s something comforting about tuning out the world for two hours or so and engrossing yourself in a moving piece of entertainment (unless you’re one of those jerks who looks at their phone through an entire movie; stop that, kids).

If you’re looking for some streaming recommendations as the days grow shorter and winter arrives, look no further. I’ve assembled a hearty helping of films for you to sample. There’s a new Martin Scorsese masterpiece, a Shane Black comedy, a film about a ranting, raving president (no, not the current one), a suburban Western, and more! Here are the best movies streaming right now! So let’s get streaming.

Blu-ray releases 1128

(Welcome to Not Dead Yet, a feature dedicated to what’s new on Blu-ray and what special features you should be excited about. Because yes, some of us still like to own physical copies of our movies.)

Before we kick November to the curb, there’s a slew of great Blu-rays you might want to snap up for your viewing pleasure. As always, we encourage you to remember that while there’s plenty of digital media out there, physical media is still an essential part of a balanced entertainment diet. You can’t beat something tangible, folks. Or maybe you can. But I’m going to hold onto this stubborn belief as long as humanly possible!

This week’s Blu-ray roundup features Kathy Bates breaking a leg (or two), a killer Santa Claus, Kirsten Dunst getting high, a goofy yet inventive space adventure, the best performance of Robert Pattinson’s career, and Jeff Goldblum doing his Jeff Goldblum thing. Here are the new Blu-ray releases you should check out this week.

thelma opening scene

In Joachim Trier‘s chilling, slow-burn coming-of-age thriller Thelma, a young woman’s emotions begin to manifest themselves in supernatural ways. It’s an eerie, effective film that burns itself into your mind and lingers long after the credits have rolled. Now the Thelma opening scene has appeared online to give you a better idea of the film’s unsettling tone.

We all have a movie that we consider to be “ours.” Whether it be the one that our family showed us as kids, the one we saw on a dark stormy night at a sleepover, or one we just discovered on TV, everyone eventually finds a movie that is as much a part of them as their own vital organs. This seems especially true if that beloved movie of yours maybe isn’t exactly loved by everyone else in the world.

This is where the term of “cult” comes into play. By definition, a “cult following” signifies a group of individuals with an incredible amount of passion for a specific aspect of culture. And with so many books, TV series, Broadway shows and movies that never really got the kind of respect their fandom thinks they deserved, the amount of titles that fall into “cult” category is becoming more and more frequent these days. The internet has only helped build cult followings all the faster.

How do we fall in love with a movie like this? Does the cult film choose us or was it destined for us in the stars long ago? Does it involve how our parents raised us and what fundamentally makes us the individuals we become?  I will now ask you to take a deep breath and travel with me to a slightly embarrassing time and place, the time when I (covered in raccoon eye liner) discovered the movie that changed me: Brian De Palma’s Phantom of the Paradise.

Thelma director interview

Thelma is the story of a girl who moves away from home for the first time to attend college. And then she falls in love with another girl. And then she realizes that she has horrifying supernatural powers. And then things really go off the rails.

Norway’s submission for Best Foreign Language Film at next year’s Academy awards is many things: a gripping horror story, a queer romance, and a personal drama about realizing that your parents aren’t always right. Director Joachim Trier balances all of these plates, crafting one of 2017’s best movies.

I spoke with Trier over the phone about finding the humanity in a horror story, crafting memorable “bad” parents, and knowing how big is too big with a horror setpiece.

Dark review

Kids on bikes. A small town with a dark secret. An underbelly of supernatural forces threatening the town at large. A government building conducting experiments that will lead to further problems. No, it’s not Stranger Things, it’s Netflix’s first German-language original series Dark.
