StreamFix: 'Catching Fire,' 'Galaxy Quest,' and 8 More Essential Streams on Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, and Crackle

22 October 2014 | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

StreamFix is your one-stop shop for the web's best streams. Here's the best of Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, and Crackle this week.    Netflix "Galaxy Quest" It's strange that we choose to watch other movies when we can just watch "Galaxy Quest" again and again. The awesome movie puts washed-up TV actors from a cult sci-fi hit (played by Sigourney Weaver, Tim Allen, Tony Shalhoub, and Alan Rickman) into a real-life space adventure. Perfect chemistry for such an offbeat cast. I'd say, "Sigourney Weaver has never been more bad-ass!" but she achieves such heights in pretty much every movie, doesn't she? "Alfie" I'm not much for remakes of Michael Caine's best work (Remember the abysmal "Sleuth" revamp?), but Jude Law actually succeeds here by recreating the debonair man at the heart of the 1966 classic. Susan Sarandon, Marisa Tomei, and Jane Krakowski all pay his conquests here. Oh, Alfie. What's it all about? »

Kidman and Firth a mismatch

19 October 2014 8:01 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Colin Firth and Nicole Kidman were terrific as a long-married couple who overcame adversity in The Railway Man but Australian audiences aren.t buying their latest on-screen pairing.

Before I Go to Sleep casts Kidman as a 40-year-old woman who wakes up every day with a blank memory. Firth is her husband who tells her been married for 14 years and Mark Strong is her neuro-psychologist who encourages her to keep a daily video diary so she can help rebuild her life.

The thriller directed by Rowan Joffe, adapted from S. J. Watson.s best-selling novel, may not have sent audiences to sleep but relatively few bothered to turn up as the film fetched $418,000 on a very wide 194 screens.

Nationwide takings dropped by 16% to $9.7 million as none of the other newcomers much enthused cinemagoers, according to Rentrak.s weekend estimates. Distributors say the market is soft and especially shallow below the top three titles. »

Thoughts I Had... The "Big Eyes" Poster

19 October 2014 6:16 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

We finally have a poster for Tim Burton's Big Eyes. Herewith some thoughts as they came to me.

• "Visionary Director" would be so much more impressive as a description if it weren't so overused.

• "Big Eyes" could well describe lots of celebrities: Emma Stone, Amanda Seyfried, Marty Feldman*, Heather Graham, Jake Gyllenhaal, Susan Sarandon, Anne Hathaway, Sailor Moon.

Christoph Waltz and Amy Adams have Normal-Sized Eyes but that will never be a film title. The only person in this cast with gargantuan eyeballs is Krysten Ritter

• The tag line is basic but it does cleverly have a double meaning with the last bit "... and everyone bought it" 

• A lot of people seem to be sure that this one won't be a major Oscar player but apart from test screenings (a notoriously unreliable source of info) no one has seen it so it's one of our mystery movies when it »

Brad Pitt was a stone-cold fox years before "Thelma & Louise."In a batch of just-released, never-before-seen photos from the set of the short-lived series "Glory Days," we get a good look at a then 25-year-old Brad in nothing but his boxers.The show, which only lasted six episodes, revolved around a group of friends graduating high school and heading into the real world ... and costarred one of the aunts from "Sabrina, The Teenage Witch."The series ran from July-September 1990, a year before Pitt first gained notoriety for his role as an extremely sexy cowboy hitchhiker opposite Geena Davis and Susan Sarandon in their classic road movie. 25 years later, and Brad still looks pretty damn good without a shirt at the age of 50.

‘The Calling’ – Donald Sutherland’s Tales Of Terror

12 October 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The Calling sees Susan Sarandon investigate a string of peculiar murders, the victims’ faces manipulated into gruesome expressions. Assisting her in the process is fellow acting stalwart Donald Sutherland, playing a staple movie role, that of the priest in the presence of evil. It’s the latest in a long line of meaty supporting parts played by this versatile and highly-regarded actor, whose distinctive hangdog face can appear haunted, affable, wily or just plain saucy. With The Calling bringing a chill to cinemas this month, let’s take a look at some of Sutherland’s other characters from his intense and often skin-crawling back catalogue.

A good place to start is one of his first film appearances, in an unlikely project from the fledgling British horror producer Amicus. A simple train journey becomes a descent into darkness in…
