The Movie: Tombstone
Where You Can Stream It: Amazon Prime Video
The Pitch: Former lawman Wyatt Earp and his brothers move with their families to Tombstone, Arizona to make it rich. But when a gang called The Cowboys starts terrorizing the area, the Earps and their old pal Doc Holliday decide that they can’t just stand by and watch, setting up a massive conflict which erupts into violence during a famous showdown at the O.K. Corral.
Why It’s Essential Viewing: Because this movie straight up rules, that’s why. Read More »
Everyone has a favorite Val Kilmer movie. Since the early ‘80s, Kilmer has been a beloved actor in Hollywood with films like Real Genius, Willow, Batman Forever and Heat. Starring in several films that are staples in many people’s childhood and young adult life, Kilmer was the perfect choice to spotlight for a Rolling Roadshow weekend – especially with the recent announcement of Top Gun 2: Maverick, the sequel to his 1986 action film where he portrayed his infamous (yet lovable) role as IceMan alongside Tom Cruise. This past weekend, I had the distinct pleasure of seeing not one, but two outdoor screenings courtesy of Alamo Drafthouse – Tombstone and Top Gun, with the wingman himself in attendance.

A couple of weeks ago, I had the immense pleasure of attending a Rolling Roadshow screening of Red Headed Stranger at Willie Nelson’s ranch in Luck, Texas. If you’ve never experienced a Rolling Roadshow event, you’re missing out. It’s a one-of-a-kind outdoor cinematic experience that’s a hell of a lot of fun.
This time, Alamo Drafthouse’s Rolling Roadshow is teaming up with Austin Food and Wine Alliance for two outdoor events featuring screenings of Tombstone and Top Gun, and star Val Kilmer himself will also be in attendance each night. Read More »
(Welcome to Now Stream This, a column dedicated to the best movies streaming on Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, and every other streaming service out there.)
Hello there, streamers. As usual, I’ve gathered together a smorgasbord of movies you can stream right now. The goal of Now Stream This is to offer variety. While the other streaming columns we run here at /Film are usually focused-in on specific genres or styles, Now Stream This likes to keep things loosey-goosey. I want to give you options, because taste is subjective, and sometimes you feel like watching high art, and other times you just want to watch something sleazy. Don’t worry, I’ve got you covered. These are the best movies streaming right now. Let’s get streaming!

Over the course of a 37 year career, actor Stephen Lang has played his fair share of cowboys, marines, thugs, lawyers, cops, and more. But in Mortal Engines, he’s breaking new ground.
In the new film, which hits theaters this week, Lang plays a “resurrected man” named Shrike, a mummified zombie assassin who’s on a never-ending hunt for protagonist Hester Shaw. I sat down with Lang last week and he told me about the tactics he wanted to avoid while playing this role, the physicality of the character, and shared stories from the sets of films like Don’t Breathe and Tombstone.

Even though Easter may be over a week away, you can still have some fun hunting for Easter eggs thanks to the latest exhibition from Hero Complex Gallery.
A new show, aptly called Easter Eggs, brings together artists Ape Meets Girl (aka Kevin M. Wilson) and Vance Kelly for a little gallery featuring pieces that showcase a cavalcade or inside references to some of your favorite movies and TV shows. We exclusively debuted a couple pieces from this show earlier in the week, but now all of the pieces from the Hero Complex Gallery Easter Eggs art show are available online, including prints for Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy, Reservoir Dogs, Tombstone, The Crow, Planet of the Apes and more.
