StreamFix keeps you up to date on the best streams of the web. Here's the best of what's up and coming for Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, and Crackle this November. Netflix "Portlandia, Season 4" Here is what you need to do: Go right now and watch the episode where Toni and Candice take over the Portland Trailblazers dance team. It is painfully funny, and their final dance routine is a shocking horror for the ages. "Snowpiercer" (Nov. 22) Chris Evans. On a post-apocalyptic train. With Tilda Swinton in her wildest getup yet. What are you supposed to do, not watch this?  "Nebraska" (Nov. 8) Alexander Payne's black-and-white Midwestern pseudo-road movie has a bunch of fabulous moments. The shot of Bruce Dern's relatives watching TV in the living room is sincerely one of the most memorable things I saw in 2013. And all hail June Squibb for showing us how to really »

‘Mr. Turner’ Could Lead Timothy Spall to An Oscar Nomination

28 October 2014 10:27 AM, PDT | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor 

Timothy Spall and director Mike Leigh have worked together on five different films, including Secrets & Lies (1996), which resulted in Leigh’s first Oscar nomination, and Topsy-Turvy (1999). Leigh has received seven Oscar nominations since 1997, but Spall has never received recognition from the Academy. That could change this year with Leigh’s Mr. Turner, which features Spall as the British landscape painter J.M.W. Turner. The film has been praised and Spall’s portrayal of the obsessive painter garnered him the best actor award at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival, which makes him the latest character actor to get a boost from a Leigh film.

Spall’s Mr. Turner co-star, Lesley Manville, has worked with Leigh for multiple films and received a BAFTA nomination for Another Year (2010). Marianne Jean-Baptiste and Brenda Blethyn, Spall’s co-stars in Secrets & Lies, both received Oscar nominations for their roles in the film. »

The Most Inappropriate Celebrity Relationships

25 October 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

View Photo Gallery

Celebrities aren’t immune to doing things in relationships that might be a little bit questionable. Sometimes, their relationships are the product of cheating, or sometimes, they have hug age differences, which make said relationships seem rather inappropriate. Now, we’re not about to judge anyone else’s happiness, because when it comes to love, who’s to say what’s right and wrong between consenting adults? Although sometimes in some of these cases “adult” is a term loosely used.

From the infamous Woody Allen/Soon Yi Previn relationship to more palatable love beginning under not-so-palatable circumstances, like Brangelina, these celebrities have relationships that might be considered bothersome by some. From Lorde, a teenager with an adult boyfriend, to the 24 year age gap between heartthrob Aaron Jonnson and his girlfriend Sam Taylor Wood, many of these relationships seem to push the boundaries of propriety. But again — where love is concerned, »

Elvis, The Movie Showing at Super-8 Marlon Brando Movie Madness November 4th in St. Louis

23 October 2014 7:45 PM, PDT | | See recent news »


There have been many TV bios of Elvis Presley but Elvis, The Movie, the once-elusive 1979 feature starring Kurt Russell, was the first and is still the best. An 18-minute condensed version of Elvis The Movie on Super-8 sound film will be screened at Super-8 Marlon Brando Movie Madness on November 4th at The Way Out Club – (yes, we’re aware that Elvis, The Movie has nothing to do with Marlon Brando, but it’s the variety that makes it the madness!)

When Elvis died August 16 1978 at age 42, it sent shock waves around the world, comparable to the deaths of Princess Diana or Michael Jackson in later decades. A carnival atmosphere developed in Memphis as thousands of mourners gathered around the gates of Graceland and sales of Elvis’ music skyrocketed.  The 3-hour epic Elvis The Movie, produced by Dick Clark for the ABC network premiered 18 months later on February 11 1979 and, despite »

'Listen Up Philip' (2014) Movie Review

23 October 2014 3:37 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

About to publish his second novel and at the current peak of his career, Philip Lewis Friedman (Jason Schwartzman) is burning bridges with just about everyone in his life: his ex, his college roommate, his publisher, his colleagues, his girlfriend, no one is safe. He has become resentful toward those around him because he thinks they're beneath him. He is selfish and unsentimental, and when people call him on it, he wonders if that's a bad thing. Everything in the world revolves around Philip, at least in his mind. Given the film's first scene, which sees Philip meeting his ex-girlfriend for lunch so he can brag about his recent success, it seems he has always been this way, incapable of understanding how repugnant he is, how his blatant narcissism and intense disinterest in others make him a true asshole. Weeks before the release of his book, Philip decides not to »

Watch: John Lithgow, Star of Gotham Nominee 'Love Is Strange'

23 October 2014 3:22 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

There are so many coming-of-age stories every year that it's rare to see a mature love story. Even though Ira Sachs' "Love is Strange," which debuted at Sundance and landed a best feature nomination for the Gotham Awards, is about two gay men who get married, it's more about aging love. It's touching how much these people love each other.  John Lithgow and Alfred Molina have both generated buzz in the early awards discussion. I spoke with Sachs and Lithgow at Sundance: "It's love at the end of your life," says writer-director Ira Sachs, who was inspired by not only Woody Allen's New York relationship movies "Husbands and Wives" and "Hannah and Her Sisters" but his mother and stepfather's marriage of over 40 years, and the long relationship between his Memphis great-uncle and his partner. "There's something imperfect and beautiful and I wanted to make a film about that. »

Adrian Manzano Talks Indie Filmmaking While Latino & Film About Dominican College Graduate in Crisis

23 October 2014 7:23 AM, PDT | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

Adrian Manzano is interested in making films in the same vein as Woody Allen’s, but only the Latino-American-experience-in-New-York-City-version of such. “Do you know Ava Duvernay?” asks the Colombian American filmmaker, to which I obviously replied “of course.” “She’s killing it; I’ve met her [Duvernay] twice. She says ‘cast those who you love,’” Manzano explains, “when you’re on a string budget, it’s extremely hard and you have to work as a team.” The filmmaker hired Dominican actress Sofia Rodriguez – who had a prominent role in his first film “Sex, Love and Salsa” - as the lead of his sophomore film “La Gradua” (The Graduate), about a young woman, living in NYC’s »

Woody Allen Wednesdays – Scoop and To Rome with Love

22 October 2014 9:29 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Every Wednesday, FM writers Simon Columb and Brogan Morris write two short reviews on Woody Allen films … in the hope of watching all his films over the course of roughly 49 weeks. If you have been watching Woody’s films and want to join in, feel free to comment with short reviews yourself! Next up is Scoop and To Rome with Love

Simon Columb on Scoop

Magic, death and murder are often found in Woody Allen films. Scoop is no different, as Joe Stromble (Ian McShane), from beyond the grave, appears to reporter Sondra (Scarlett Johansson) in the middle of a magician’s (Woody Allen) show. He gives her the ‘scoop’ of a lifetime, revealing the tarot-card killer as upper-class businessman Peter Lyman (Hugh Jackman). Pretending to play Father and daughter in many scenes, Scarlett Johansson is channelling her inner Woody Allen while acting with him. This means Scoop includes two neurotic, »

Watch Richard Ayoade's bizarre interview with Krishnan Guru-Murthy

21 October 2014 9:37 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

If you tuned into Channel 4 News last night (October 21), you might have caught Richard Ayoade's slightly awkward interview with Krishnan Guru-Murthy.

The newscaster and actor were meant to talk about Ayoade's new book Ayoade on Ayoade, but the interview quickly descended into random talk of Woody Allen's moose story and Mel Brooks's 2000 Year Old Man.

Guru-Murthy attempts to bring the interview back to serious issues by asking about Ayoade's Nigerian-Norwegian descent, but Ayoade responds: "I think there should be more Norwegians everywhere.

"They have a relatively high birthrate and the population stays the same. They're fleeing, it's like rats leaving a ship and they're everywhere... you can't move for Norwegians in this city and I for one think it must be stopped."

He adds: "I don't dislike interviews, it's like commuting, I accept it as a part of this but no-one loves it."

The White Haired Witch Of Lunar Kingdom Review [Lff 2014]

21 October 2014 7:19 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Within the first ten minutes of The White Haired Witch of Lunar Kingdom, you realize that you’re going to have to seriously recalibrate your cheese tolerance levels. An adaptation of a Chinese novel, the film quickly introduces an apparently endless parade of bearded, angry men in elaborate armour who smirk at the camera like 1950’s serial villains. The rest of the movie is devoted to a super-saccharine, vaseline-on-the-lens love story that comes with a strong whiff of Twilight.

Before I summarize the plot, I should confess that I didn’t understand most of it. The White Haired Witch of Lunar Kingdom is a pretty well known story in China, being a smash hit novel first and having been adapted to cinema multiple times. So, Jacob Cheung’s film assumes you’re going to know who’s who before it even begins, a tactic that might save on exposition for »

News Nuggets: Is Benedict Cumberbatch or Tom Hiddleston the hotter Brit star?

21 October 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Susan Wloszczyna cheekily asks which British star is hotter: Benedict Cumberbatch or Tom Hiddleston? She says each of the rising stars has "their own passionate supporters" that stir up deep rivalries among those fans. Maybe it was back in the 1960s for the last such excitement over hunky Brits like Peter O'Toole, Alan Bates, Oliver Reed, and Albert Finney. She offers up dueling video interviews to support her evidence about each man. Cumberbatch recently won an Emmy Award for playing Sherlock Holmes and is a strong Oscar contender for the upcoming "The Imitation Game." Hiddleston is most known as the villain in "Thor," Woody Allen's "Midnight in Paris," and "The Deep Blue Sea." Thompson on Hollywood -Break- HBO releases a new trailer for the much-anticipated return of "The Comeback." It shows actress Valerie Cherish (Lisa Kudrow) as she "claws her way back to the middle" of the entertainment indus. »

Mira Sorvino on leaving dumb-blonde movie roles for The Intruders

20 October 2014 4:00 PM, PDT | The Independent | See recent The Independent news »

"I could talk about this for days," says Mira Sorvino, and I believe her. Unfortunately, we don't have days, and after the 47-year-old actress tells me about her work as a Un Goodwill Ambassador to Combat Human Trafficking – of meeting police and lawyers in Mexico, interviewing trafficked child virgins in Cambodia and lobbying Congress to abolish slavery in Darfur – I'm hoping I don't sound too frivolous when I steer the subject towards Woody Allen. »

Luis Moreno Ocampo on pursuing justice by Anne-Katrin Titze

Luis Moreno Ocampo told Anne-Katrin Titze that Watchers Of The Sky director Edet Belzberg and Us Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power are the "new Raphael Lemkins." Photo: Susan Norget

Luis Moreno Ocampo was appointed the first Chief Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court at the Hague in 2003. During his nine-year term he was responsible for "investigating and prosecuting massive atrocities" and gathering evidence to build a consensus with the member States in order to "enforce the rules".

In New York, a relaxed Luis Moreno Ocampo told me about the day Raphael Lemkin came into his life, the insight Nuremberg prosecutor Benjamin Ferencz gave him, the need for a protocol in the global system, why Star Wars is incredibly smart and how much he enjoys Woody Allen, Visconti and the Coen brothers.

The Little Death Review [Lff 2014]

19 October 2014 4:02 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Australian film has seen as resurgence in the 21st century. Not since the heyday of the 1970s has the antipodean cinema scene enjoyed such a swell in international popularity. For a very long time, the only films to come out of Australia were comedies. These films were representative of Australian cinema to the world at large and determined what kind of movie was considered commercially viable in its home country. This resulted in a rush of Australian comedy films that stuck fast to the rule of diminishing returns. Thank God then that we have had such a great run of Australian films lately and more particularly, the absolutely terrific sex comedy, The Little Death.

A portmanteau film that’s a little reminiscent of Paul Thomas Anderson’s Magnolia and the work of Woody Allen, The Little Death is absolutely concerned with sex. Each story encapsulates the delicate realm of sexual honesty. »
