cobra kai

(Welcome to The Quarantine Stream, a new series where the /Film team shares what they’ve been watching while social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic.)

The Series: Cobra Kai

Where You Can Stream It: YouTube Premium

The Pitch: Decades after their 1984 All Valley Karate Tournament bout, a middle-aged Daniel LaRusso and Johnny Lawrence find themselves martial-arts rivals again.

Why It’s Essential Quarantine Viewing: This is a show that, by all accounts, shouldn’t have been great. It’s produced on a low budget for YouTube’s failed premium original Netflix competitor and features a bunch of actors from the 1980s reprising roles their childhood. The series presents a legacy-quel to The Karate Kid, but imagined from the point of view of the film’s villain Johnny Lawrence (played by the great William Zabka). We’ve heard time and time again that there are two sides to every story. Now imagine that the classic Karate Kid story was only Daniel’s view of the events.

the haunted trailer

BOO!!!!! Now that I have your attention, would you like to watch a trailer for The Haunted? If not, too bad, we’re doing it anyway. This horror movie has a woman working a nightshift at a spooky house, which is a surefire recipe for what I like to call the spookies. Things go bump in the night, there are lots of shadows, and more than a few flashlights get used. Watch The Haunted trailer below!

Kedi Documentary

(Welcome to The Quarantine Stream, a new series where the /Film team shares what they’ve been watching while social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic.)

The Movie: Kedi

Where You Can Stream It: YouTube Premium and Kanopy and (all you need is a library card)

The Pitch: Hundreds of thousands of cats roam the metropolis of Istanbul freely. For thousands of years they’ve wandered in and out of people’s lives, becoming an essential part of the communities that make the city so rich. Claiming no owners, these animals live between two worlds, neither wild nor tame – and they bring joy and purpose to those people they choose to adopt. In Istanbul, cats are the mirrors to the people, allowing them to reflect on their lives in ways nothing else could.

Why It’s Essential Viewing: Since we’re probably not going to be traveling anywhere for the next few months, you might get some reprieve from living vicariously through the lens of Kedi, as it shines a light on Istanbul, Turkey. Not only is the city gorgeous in its own right, but it has a bonus for cat lovers out there. Istanbul is home to thousands of stray cats that roam the city. Everywhere you go, there are stray cats. They hang out outside delis, lay on top of warm car hoods, sit on piers longing for fish, and really just lay wherever the hell they want to, even (and sometimes especially) if it’s in someone’s way. They’re cats! And I love them! Read More »
