quentin tarantino roman polanski

Quentin Tarantino‘s upcoming movie about the Manson Family murders — or to be more precise, about Los Angeles in 1969 — seems to be unable to detach itself from controversy, with the latest update guaranteed to ruffle a few feathers.

A “key” character in the film will reportedly be Roman Polanski, the controversial director who was married to Sharon Tate at the time of her murder, and who is currently a fugitive from the U.S. after being arrested and charged with the rape of a 13-year-old girl.

This news is accompanied by a tidbit involving the character Tom Cruise (who has yet to officially sign on) may play in the film.

mission impossible fallout

Someday, Tom Cruise will do what all humans eventually get around to doing and shuffle off this mortal coil. But the ongoing existence of the Mission: Impossible movies suggest that he’s made a pact with Death itself and will outlive most human beings. How else can you explain him continuing to stare mortality in the face, put his hands on his hips, and laugh in the general direction of God himself?

A new look at a Mission: Impossible – Fallout stunt is the latest reminder that Tom Cruise fears not death nor dismemberment nor bodily harm of any kind. The rest of us can only stare at this image and wince because there’s no way we’d survive this shit.

Best Christmas Movies Streaming Right Now

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

I don’t want to alarm you, but I have some shocking news: it’s currently the holiday season. Yes, I can’t believe it either, but here we are. The utterly bonkers year that was 2017 is almost gone, but before it goes we’ll have to muddle through the holiday season somehow. The holidays can be a stressful time for some people: there’s the hassle of finding the perfect gift for loved ones, mixed with lousy weather, congested traffic and the existential dread of the looming new year. My advice? Relieve some of that stress with movies. After all, movies are the reason for the season (please don’t correct me on this, I’m sure this is correct).

In the spirit of giving, I’ve compiled a list of Christmas movies for you to stream as we run out the clock on 2017. These aren’t your traditional Christmas movies, though. The films compiled here are primarily what I’d like to call alternative Christmas movies. In other words, a lot of these are Christmas movies for people who don’t like Christmas movies. But don’t worry, I made sure to throw in one or two traditional tales of holiday cheer just in case.

Here are the best Christmas movies streaming right now! Let’s get streaming.
