Hey, you know which movie doesn’t need a remake? The Others, the spooky, atmospheric ghost story starring Nicole Kidman. So, of course, we’re getting a remake. The Others remake is now in the works, after Sentient Entertainment won the rights to the project. And, just to make things extra silly, this remake is going to be “modernized.” Sure. Whatever.

August is a precarious month for the film industry; nestled between the blockbuster summer schedule and the advantageous awards season of fall, it’s a quiet time for big budget fare. Though not quite the dumping ground of, say, February, it’s mostly a breather month – a calm before the prestige storm, and where studios can test their less-trusted properties.
It may evade easy categorization, but August can be a stellar month for film. It’s the season of R-rated comedies, violent road movies, and experiments. Some of the best mainstream films of the last 25 years came out in Leo season. We chose 15 of our favorite August releases, films that exceeded expectations – some economically, some critically, and some that linger on for less discernible reasons.

Independence Day just ended, which for many of us means it’s time to trudge back to work, our sunburns peeling, our clothes still stinking of BBQ (gross, throw your clothes in the washer, weirdo). What better way to cure the post-July 4th blues than by kicking back and streaming some movies? In this edition of Now Stream This, we have a silent Hitchcock classic, a chilling ghost story, a hilarious mockumentary about dog shows, James Caan getting his ankles smashed by a sledgehammer, and the best performance of Adam Sandler’s career. Let’s get streaming.
