This week it finally happened, Lovefilm is no more, it has now been completely consumed by its Amazon overlords and is now known as Amazon Prime and something that operates totally through your Amazon account should you have one.
At first this was a baffling experience, there was rumours of a lot more new content being added and when you logged into the Ios app for Lovefilm/Amazon post switchover, suddenly you were faced with A Lot of new content, things like Aliens, Congo, Cujo, Invaders from Mars and lots of HBO shows including Eastbound and Down, Enlightened and the Sopranos as well as Community in the ‘Recently Added’ section.
Of course this was too good to be true and you could add these to your watchlist but then not actually watch them. So when things calmed down and you logged back in, these titles it turned out were part »

I've waited so long to share my top ten list that it's become a crushing psychic weight, a symbol of my failure to keep up in this strange Oscar season I've had. I realized today that if I didn't share it on this very day, it wouldn't happen at all which is unthinkable. Tradition. Tradition...... Tradition ♫
We're all eager to move on to 2014 but I personally can't make the calendar leap without the Film Bitch Awards (and the Oscars, duh). They're my own internal clock and how I clock the film years. If I could rewind said clock I'd watch all the movies again. They're all dusty now, like cherished objects I shoved into closets or drawers for reasons of clutter when people were coming over. Now I can't remember where I've left them or why it was I thought they were worth hoarding in the first place.
You still with me? »

Farmiga plays a grieving daughter who finds herself trapped inside one of the films of her late 1980s scream queen mother (Akerman).
Reunited, the pair join forces against a killer haunting the film world.
A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas director Strauss-Schulson was first reported to be attached to The Final Girls in 2011.
Akerman has most recently been starring in the television show Trophy Wife.
The “Netflix Scroll” is an all-too-familiar activity, as the sheer volume of titles available on Netflix Streaming can make it quite overwhelming to settle on what to watch. Luckily, we’ve go three new titles to highlight that might whittle down your choices a bit in the near future. Writer/director Sofia Coppola’s 2010 film Somewhere is currently available to stream, as is the 1992 Harvey Keitel crime drama Bad Lieutenant and a current Best Documentary Feature Oscar nominee Cutie and the Boxer. Somewhere was a tad underrated when it opened a few years ago following Coppola’s disappointing Lost in Translation follow-up Marie Antoinette, but the pic is a fascinating portrait of Hollywood life as seen through the eyes of a famous actor (Stephen Dorff) and his 11-year-old daughter (Elle Fanning). Hit the jump to watch a video highlighting all three films, which are currently available to stream on Netflix. »

"...she's a delicate woman, an overwhelmingly subtle 'Miss'. The perfume she wears is a reflection of her personality: floral and light, it's the distillation of notes creating a veritable ode to freshness. Subtle and velvety, it seems to have been specially composed for her, like a silk dress whose thousand nuances of pink express her unique and complex character.
"Contained in an unmistakable couture bottle, the glass etched with a houndstooth motif and a bow at its neck, 'Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet' offers a soft and springlike variation on the houses very first fragrance, while being inspired by the 'Miss Dior' dresses with their delicate petals as designed by Christian Dior in the past, and by Raf Simons today..."
"'Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet' is a smooth and carefully formed perfume, »

This week we're featuring the 1986 documentary "Heavy Metal Parking Lot" because, well, it's about a bunch of heavy metal fans tailgating a Maryland concert venue. Not to mention the fact that the now cult film was reportedly a favorite on Nirvana's tour bus. That's Nirvana, arguably one of the greatest the rock bands. Ever. Oh, Sofia Coppola is also a fan. Read More: SnagFilms Movie of the Week: Fall For 'Endless Love' Ahead of its Valentine's Day Remake To go along with the short documentary film, which is almost 17 minutes long, SnagFilms has created a short quiz and drinking game that you can play with your close friends and/or worst enemies. Some of the challenges require taking a drink every time Metallica or Judas Priest is mentioned. Fun stuff, but be safe. Check out the quiz over here to see what type of metal fan you are. »

During an hour-plus interview with Grantland’s Bill Simmons, Lena Dunham covered a range of topics — from Jezebel’s “messed up” offer to pay thousands of dollars for her un-retouched Vogue photos to the creepy undertones of the movie Beautiful Girls.
But our favorite topic was the Girls creator’s Tumblr obsession: Old Loves. The name invokes images of elderly lovebirds, but it’s actually an exhaustive catalog of celebrity couples who are no longer together. Some exes are very memorable (we all know that Notebook co-stars Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams were also a real-life couple), but some are »

Despite two remarkable new films, attention has shifted away from the actress's luminous career to her political beliefs as she becomes embroiled in a controversy over the boycott of Israeli goods
It is usually the case that studios, agents and distributors will co-ordinate release dates to capitalise on a star's popularity, but it is rare that an A-list actress will be headlining two remarkable new films and an international political controversy all at the same time. That's not your run-of-the-mill Hollywood career, but then Scarlett Johansson is no common-or-garden star.
The nature of her latest movies tells you as much. In Her, which has just opened in the UK, she plays Samantha, a computer operating system that evolves in response to the user's needs and personality. She is as present as any of her flesh-and-blood co-stars despite appearing in voice only. Her is complimented by Under the Skin, in which »

Banshee, Season 2: Episode 6 – “Armies of One”
Written by John Romano
Directed by Babak Najafi
Airs Friday nights at 10 on Cinemax
“I don’t know if anyone ever changes, really. But we can evolve, right? I mean, that’s what we’re trying to do, isn’t it, just become better versions of ourselves?”
Babak Najafi and John Romano absolutely killed it in last week’s episode of Banshee, which is easily - easily – in the running for best television episode of the year. The director-writer pair returns this week in “Armies of One” and delivers something just as powerful and engaging, but in an entirely different way. If “The Truth About Unicorns” felt a lot like a Sofia Coppola film, “Armies of One” finds a home next to the works of Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu (Amores perros and 21 Grams). Its narrative is much more disjointed than the average Banshee entry, »

The actor posted a picture of himself with Sinise and Williamson, who played Lieutenant Dan and Bubba respectively in the 1994 movie, on his Twitter.
"Hadn't seen these old friends for too long," he tweeted along with the photo.
As the classic heartfelt movie approaches its 20th anniversary, we take a look back at what the main stars of the drama have gone on to accomplish since.
Is there anything Bill Murray hasn't done? And I'm not talking just movies.
A man of seemingly legendary stature, the actor broke out on "Saturday Night Live" in the late '70s and only grew more prominent with unforgettable roles in "Caddyshack" (1980) and "Ghostbusters" (1984). Since then, Murray has also established himself in dramatic roles, such as in the acclaimed Sofia Coppola movie "Lost in Translation," which garnered him a Best Actor nomination.
Whether or not you've seen Murray on the big screen or at the ballpark, there's still much to know about the star. From his duet with Clint Eastwood to his unbelievable encounters with fans, here are 21 things you probably don't know about Bill Murray.
1. Murray is a part-owner of three minor league baseball teams, including the Riverdogs in Charleston, South Carolina. and the Brockton Rox in Massachusetts, which explains this.
2. Murray admits to signing on for the "Garfield »

Emma Watson hasn't rushed into making any really big moves post-"Harry Potter," instead seemingly careful in considering each choice. Indeed, she's mostly decided to go in for supporting roles or for very tiny turns in stuff varying from "My Week With Marilyn" or even "The Bling Ring," to a great performance in "The Perks Of Being A Wallflower" and a memorable cameo in "This Is The End." This spring she'll have a bigger part in the water-ready "Noah," and it seems Watson is sticking with auteurs for the moment. Having already notched Sofia Coppola and Darren Aronofsky on her belt, Watson has now joined "The Others" and "Open Your Eyes" director Alejandro Amenábar's upcoming thriller "Regression." All we know so far is that she'll co-star with Ethan Hawke, and The Weinstein Company's offshoot label Dimension will release it in 2015, which suggests something strictly in the genre vein. Indeed »

The Feb. 4 world preem of George Clooney’s fifth directorial project, Columbia and Fox 2000’s “Monuments Men” brought out New York staples like Regis Philbin and former New York Mayor Rudy Guiliani to the Ziegfeld Theater.
In his opening remarks, Clooney, who co-wrote, directed and starred in the pic, addressed what he referred to as “the elephant in the room” — the passing of Philip Seymour Hoffman. The majority of the cast has worked with Hoffman on past projects.
“It’s senseless and it’s sad, but Phil will be greatly missed,” Clooney said of his friend. “It’s hard to be here with that sort of reigning over us.”
On a more cheerful note, pic’s Bob Balaban said that notorious jokester Clooney only pranked Matt Damon on set. “I did periodically wonder if something was happening that I didn’t know about,” he admitted.
However, Balaban doubted that Clooney »

“Palo Alto” screened last year in the Venice, Telluride and Toronto film festivals, and Tribeca Film picked up U.S. rights in December. Coppola is the granddaughter of Francis Ford Coppola and niece of Sofia Coppola.
The film is a James Franco and Rabbit Bandini Prods. presentation, produced by Sebastian Pardo, Adriana Rotaru, Miles Levy and Vince Jolivette and based on several linked stories in James Franco’s book of the same name about a group of high school students.
Franco stars with Emma Roberts, Jack Kilmer, Nat Wolff, Zoe Levin, Chris Messina and Val Kilmer with three storylines — a young woman (Roberts) caught between flirting with her soccer coach (Franco) and a relationship with a teen stoner (Jack Kilmer); another about a »

Part heart-wrenching, part strangely uplifting, 2013 was a unique year for intelligent and affecting films about love. From an unlikely Palme d’Or winner to one of the best reviewed sequels ever, this past year delivered a handful of films that stand out not only for their honest and well-rounded depictions of romantic love, but also for their calculated aesthetics.
Every year, the cinema provides countless stories about love – this point is obvious. In no way am I suggesting 2013 was any different, what I’m suggesting is that, for me, there were more than a couple – six, to be exact – that were not only insightful, but also expertly made. And I’m not talking about your standard cliché-ridden romantic comedies. I’m referring to auteur-driven works of art; films, formally brilliant, yet also emotionally and intellectually stimulating – or in other words, real cinema. The kind of stuff that requires you to leave the couch, »

We all use technology to escape from our lives. But sometimes you need to see a film about a man having sex with his phone for it to really hit home
I have lived in Britain long enough to know that enthusiasm and cheerleading will never get you much credibility here – deprecation, misanthropy and a dash of inverse snobbery are the far cooler attitudes to adopt – so I apologise for the upcoming expression of total and unabashed positivity: there are so many brilliant films around at the moment. Go immerse yourselves in some Noel Gallagher interviews now to recover from that.
Whereas last year's awards big hitters felt like a giant shrug of middle-of-the-road meh-ness – Argo, Silver Linings Playbook, Les Miserfreakingables – this year proffers films people might actually want to see more than once. Loath as I am to disagree with Joe Queenan, the best of the awards-lauded films this year – Dallas Buyers Club, »
