joker origin movie

I’m still having trouble wrapping my head around the news that The Hangover director Todd Phillips is directing a Joker origin movie that’s being executive produced by Martin Scorsese, because that combination sounds like something that sprang from a particularly unhinged game of Mad Libs. But now a new report sheds some light on how this version of the Clown Prince of Crime becomes the legendary villain we know and love – and it sounds like the film will be paying homage to one of the most famous Batman comics of all.

Martin Scorsese is returning to the small screen. The legendary director is not shying away from testing new cinematic mediums, juggling projects released through both streaming websites and the regular old studio system. His past two TV projects have been prestigious period projects released through HBO and developed with Terence Winter, but Scorsese seems to be breaking the mold once again.

For his next television project, Scorsese is teaming up with a new partner and going to a time period that he has never explored before: Ancient Rome.

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.

the irishman theatrical run

The long road to release for Martin Scorsese‘s The Irishman just became a little more rocky, with Netflix remaining silent on whether the legendary director’s ambitious mob movie will get a theatrical run.

Scorsese’s costly film has long bounced around Hollywood on account of its hefty price tag — the director wanted to use de-aging and aging technology to depict Robert de Niro and Al Pacino‘s characters at different stages of their lives — resulting in the project landing at Netflix. The streaming service promised to back the movie’s ballooning budget, but apparently has made no promises about a theatrical release, which would qualify the movie for Oscar contention.

The Snowman isn’t even in wide release yet and it’s already been met with a chilly reception. U.K. critics who got to see the film early have panned it across the board, and it looks like American critics aren’t going to be much kinder. Now The Snowman director Tomas Alfredson seems to be doing a bit of damage control, explaining script issues hampered the project.

martin scorsese rotten tomatoes

The animosity between the film industry and internet “aggregators” has been simmering since the summer, but it’s just kicked up a notch with the introduction of legendary director Martin Scorsese into the fray.

Scorsese penned an excoriating essay against Rotten Tomatoes, Cinemascore, and other digital aggregation sites, calling them “hostile to serious filmmakers,” and a bane on the film criticism community. It’s another entry in the ongoing debate over the influence Rotten Tomatoes has over film studios and the box office.
