Jay and Silent Bob Reboot Commentary Track

Kevin Smith‘s recent movie, Jay and Silent Bob Reboot, is now streaming on Amazon Prime Video. It’s also on Blu-ray and digital. But none of those versions of the film come with a commentary track. So Smith, good egg that he is, decided to record one and upload it to YouTube for fans. It’s totally free, too – you don’t have to plunk down extra money or anything like that. Just turn the movie on, fire up YouTube, and you’re ready to go.

quarantine stream nailed it

(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: Nailed It!

Where You Can Stream It: Netflix

The Pitch: A baking competition show featuring the world’s worst bakers.

Why It’s Essential Quarantine Viewing: There’s nothing riding on Nailed It! It’s about as laid-back a show as you can get – even when compared to other laid-back baking competitions, like, say The Great British Bake Off. No one takes the competition angle seriously, and, best of all, the contestants – who are truly terrible bakers – will make you feel better about your own culinary skills.

Jaws musical

This year marks the 40th anniversary of Jaws, director Steven Spielberg‘s iconic film that ushered in the modern era of Hollywood blockbusters. But before the retrospective pieces begin rolling in, let’s look ahead to 2021, because that’s when a stage musical called Bruce, named after the constantly-malfunctioning mechanical shark which plagued Spielberg’s set, is set to open at New Jersey’s Paper Mill Playhouse. And from the description of the play, it seems like Jaws fans from all over might want to plan on making a pilgrimage to Jersey to check this out in person. Read More »

the hail mary

Here’s something refreshing: actual movie news. As in, old-fashioned movie news about a new movie, and potential casting, that has nothing to do with coronavirus, or things being shut down. The last few weeks have been filled with seemingly nothing but corona-related stories, so when a traditional bit of film news pops up, we’re all pretty damn ecstatic around here. Having already played an astronaut in First Man, Ryan Gosling is deciding to give it another go with The Hail Mary, a new film based on a novel by The Martian writer Andy Weir.

doctor who rose prequel

By its nature, Doctor Who is a show filled with gaps and holes — the series was off the air for 16 years between the time it was canceled in 1989 and revived for a modern audience in 2005 by Russell T. Davies. Even when it’s on the air, our favorite time-traveling alien is having countless off-screen adventures that we’ll never be privy to.

The mystery of Doctor Who has allowed fans to fill those gaps with their own imaginations, or with the hundreds of audio book stories released by Big Finish. But imagination can only take us so far, especially when that’s the only thing we’re stuck with in quarantine. So former showrunner Russell T. Davies and current showrunner Chris Chibnall are stepping in to fill in those gaps with never-before-seen prequels to their respective runs on Doctor Who.
