Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles sequel

Will audiences ever see a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles sequel set in the same continuity as the original live-action trilogy?

Bobby Herbeck, one of the screenwriters of the 1990 film, is trying to make that happen. In a new interview, Herbeck reveals that he’s had conversations about a potential continuation with director Steve Barron and Brian Henson of the Jim Henson Creature Shop, the company that created the anthropomorphic turtle costumes for the original movie. Is this just idle talk, or could another live-action film set in that universe really happen? Read More »

Lost in Space Movie

(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: Lost in Space (1998)

Where You Can Stream It: Hulu

The Pitch: In this big screen update of the classic 1960s sci-fi television series, the Robinson family sets off on a mission to find a habitable planet in order to save humanity as the Earth succumbs to pollution and global warming. But their trip is set off course by a terrorist organization using the opportunist Dr. Smith to carry out their nefarious plans to sabotage the mission. Stranded in uncharted space, the family encounters various threats, including aliens and temporal displacement, but their greatest threat might come from within their own crew.

Why It’s Essential Viewing: If you’re looking for an example of a movie that is misfiring on all cylinders, look no further than Lost in Space. Though we mostly like to point out movies in The Quarantine Stream that are worth watching for making some kind of commendable contribution to pop culture, in this case, this is a movie worth watching just to see how so many things can go so wrong, even when there are interesting elements that could have made for a good big screen reboot of classic sci-fi.

The Wedding Singer

(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: The Wedding Singer

Where You Can Stream It: HBO Max

The Pitch: Flashback to 1985, when Billy Idol was king, fashion was outrageous, and CD players were not only still a thing, but they were only for the rich. This is where we find Adam Sandler as Robbie Hart, a wedding singer who’s about to tie the knot himself. But when he’s left standing at the altar, he falls into a dark depression and has given up all hope of love. Then he meets effervescent Julia Sullivan, a wedding venue server who is about to get married to a douchebro stock broker. What starts as an innocent friendship where Julia needs Robbie’s help navigating the planning of her wedding slowly turns into love in a most charming and funny way.

Why It’s Essential Viewing: It’s no secret that Adam Sandler doesn’t make the kind of quality comedies that he became beloved for throughout the 1990s. During that time, not only did he deliver favorites like Billy Madison, Happy Gilmore, and Big Daddy, but he gave us one of the best romantic comedies of the decade. Sparking immediate and undeniable chemistry with an irresistible Drew Barrymore, Sandler is not only hilarious, but effortlessly charming, and the result is a movie that is endlessly entertaining and amusingly uses the nostalgia of the 1980s to great comedic effect.
