With a seemingly endless amount of streaming options — not only the titles at our disposal, but services themselves — we’ve taken it upon ourselves to highlight the titles that have recently hit platforms. Every week, one will be able to see the cream of the crop (or perhaps some simply interesting picks) of streaming titles (new and old) across platforms such as Netflix, iTunes, Amazon, and more (note: U.S. only). Check out our rundown for this week’s selections below.

Atomic Blonde (David Leitch)

There’s a bargain underlying the whole of Atomic Blonde, wherein director David Leitch wavers between its more cheeky qualities and its adherence to the conventions of generic spy fare. The film is, by definition, “cool” in every sense. Despite some wonky plotting best described as Diet John le Carré and a heavy-handed soundtrack that occasionally gets in its own way, Charlize Theron plows full

ABC’s Channing Dungey Talks ‘American Idol,’ ‘Bachelor in Paradise’ and Multiplatform Viewing
ABC Entertainment chief Channing Dungey promised to deliver “ABC’s version of ‘American Idol’ ” when the talent competition series returns in 2018, less than two years after the series ended its storied run on Fox.

ABC is coming off a disappointment this summer with the quick flame-out of another unscripted musical competition series, “Boy Band.” Dungey acknowledged that “Boy Band,” which premiered in June, was designed to appeal to a more targeted audience niche that simply didn’t show up, but she expects “Idol” to continue to be a big-tent show as it was for 15 seasons on Fox.

“This is going to be ABC’s version of ‘American Idol,’ ” Dungey told reporters Sunday during her executive session held as part of ABC’s portion of the Television Critics Assn. summer press tour in Beverly Hills. “We’re looking forward to putting our special stamp and imprimatur on it.”

Review: ‘The Last Word’ is a Pleasant, Predictable Sitcom

Harriet Lauler is not a nice women. Taught to be pushy and proud in her days leading an advertising agency in a small California town that still has a daily paper, like much of the town — which also includes a hip indie radio station — she is a dying breed. Beat by beat, though, Lauler (played by the stellar Shirley MacLaine) “evolves” in Mark Pellington’s predictable dramedy The Last Word. Cinematic comfort food comes to mind, and rest assured, mom and grandma will probably have a nice time.

The story features a bit of darkness as Lauler, an intentional women whose gardener and stylist aren’t doing things to her liking (she’s proud enough to rip the clippers out of both of their hands), decides to control her death. No such luck as she overdoses, only to find the obituary of an old nemesis covered in red wine. This

Film Review: ‘Contemporary Color’

Film Review: ‘Contemporary Color’
Some documentaries set out to heal the world, while others succeed in making it a better place by the mere fact of their existence. A clear example of the latter, Bill and Turner Ross’ “Contemporary Color” is a gift to audiences everywhere, a spectacular kinetic pinwheel of a movie that whisks us away from big issues to celebrate an exceptional creative collaboration between Talking Heads frontman/founder David Byrne and 10 East Coast color guard squads, resulting in a one-of-a-kind concert movie through which this peculiar American art form — a meticulously choreographed mix of flag spinning, weapon tossing, and dance — gets a splendid, soul-recharging big-screen treatment.

So-called “winter guard” is a curious discipline to begin with, obscure to some, downright sacred to others, that evolved out of the ancient military tradition by which a regiment presents and protects its flag (or “colors”). Today, it is practiced at the high school and

How David Byrne Collaborated With Two Art House Documentary Filmmakers And Reinvented Concert Films All Over Again

How David Byrne Collaborated With Two Art House Documentary Filmmakers And Reinvented Concert Films All Over Again
David Byrne leaned back in his chair and stared up at the ceiling of his charmingly cluttered Soho office: “I like to keep trying new things — it keeps me on my toes.”

Um, yeah. In the last decade alone, the 64-year-old art-rock legend has authored two books, released a pair of collaborative albums (one with Brian Eno, the other with Annie Clark), written a musical about Joan of Arc, turned a building into an instrument, scored a Shia Labeouf movie, and teamed up with Fatboy Slim to create a disco opera about the life and times of Imelda Marcos, the former First Lady of the Philippines.

For Byrne, a restless iconoclast who founded Talking Heads with some Risd chums in 1975 and has been expanding his horizons ever since, such unbridled creativity is just par for the course. He’s completely at the mercy of his muse — no matter where it
