pop culture imports september 20

(Welcome to Pop Culture Imports, a column that compiles the best, wackiest, and weirdest foreign-language movies and TV shows streaming right now.)

Film festival season is in full swing, but so is extreme weather — which makes it the perfect time to throw on some foreign films. What better thing to do when weathering autumn storms than to watch Hirokazu Kore-eda‘s After the Storm, just as the Japanese auteur scores another festival circuit hit with his new film Shoplifters? On the other hand, if you’re looking for fluffier fare, there’s also a You’ve Got Mail-inspired Bollywood rom-com, a live-action adaptation of the popular fantasy anime Bleach, and a South African body-swapping comedy.

So, get over the film festival envy and turn on those subtitles.

Apple TV 4K

Digital media was dealt a blow last week when an unsuspecting iTunes customer discovered that his Apple digital purchases had disappeared from his library. The experience snowballed into all-around internet outrage as movie lovers discovered that they had no right to these movies that they supposedly “purchased” — they could be erased from their iTunes library without warning.

Five days after the story went viral, Apple has finally issued a response. And you can be certain we’ll read the fine print on this one.

Own Digital Movies

Earlier this week, customers who love buying movies through Apple found out that their digital purchases may not be as permanent and secure as they originally thought. After one iTunes user recently discovered some titles were missing from his movie library, he found out they were no longer available in the iTunes store, and it seemed they were no longer his to watch whenever he wanted. But that’s not entirely true.

If you’re one of the millions who has bought a movie through iTunes, but you end up missing a few of them at some point, don’t worry. You still own digital movies you’ve bought from Apple (mostly), and there’s a way for you to still get access to the vanished movies. Read More »

Chewbacca's voice

Chewbacca has always been a supporting player in the Star Wars universe, but in this year’s Solo: A Star Wars Story, he was promoted to one of the primary protagonists. As a much more involved character, he needed a larger range of vocal noises here than in any previous film, so the team at Skywalker Sound set out to capture some animal noises that would provide the basis for the Wookiee’s voice in the new movie.

In a new behind-the-scenes video, you can watch the sound team recording growls from a bear and a seal to pump up Chewie’s vocabulary. Plus, we have a few more bonus features, including a look at Phoebe Waller-Bridge‘s L3 droid costume and screenwriters Lawrence and Jon Kasdan talking about working with each other on the movie.

venom unrated

Despite much of the hoopla surrounding Venom that it would be darker, bloodier, and more R-rated than most superhero fare, the Sony comic book movie has been saddled with a teen-friendly PG-13 rating. It’s a rating that makes sense considering the film’s supposed appeal to “the fans,” most of whom are teen boys. But it’s one that doesn’t live up to Sony’s year-long hype train of Venom as a dark and dangerous spin on the superhero movie — nor to that buzzy San Diego Comic-Con scene involving Venom’s teeth and someone’s head.

But director Ruben Fleischer teased that a potential Venom unrated cut could appease fans wishing for something more brutal.
