31 Great '80s Movies on Netflix Streaming

22 December 2014 4:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

What's in Netflix's '80s grab bag? Swoony Merchant-Ivory films; a trio of John Hughes romantic comedies; early films with Sean Penn and Matt Dillon; Oscar-winning turns by Meryl Streep, Jodie Foster and Daniel Day-Lewis; and a few classics you already know by heart.

Mixed in are probably a few critically acclaimed films you've never seen but always meant to, whether it's B-movie fun like "Big Trouble in Little China" or ultra-arty Nc-17 fare like "The Cook, The Thief, His Wife and Her Lover."

(Availability subject to change. DeLorean and pink prom dress not included.)

1. "A Room with a View" (1986) Nr

Helena Bonham Carter is torn between freethinker Julian Sands and stuffy fiancé Daniel Day-Lewis in this sumptuous (and very funny) Merchant-Ivory period romance.

2. "The Accused" (1988) R

It's tough viewing, but Jodie Foster is mesmerizing as a rape victim who faces down her assailants in court.

3. "Bad Boys" (1983) R

30 Great Sci-Fi Movies on Netflix Streaming Right Now

4 December 2014 9:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

"What if?" is the burning question our favorite sci-fi movies ask: What if Earth was invaded by aliens or giant spiders? What makes us human once we start bending the laws of genetics and robotics? And if we worked out really really hard, would we ever have Linda Hamilton's arms in "Terminator 2"?

Here are some of the best of the sci-fi genre now streaming on Netflix, including Chris Evans in "Snowpiercer," Bruce Willis in "The Fifth Element" and plenty of Godzilla and the crew of the USS Enterprise.

1. "Antiviral" (2012) Nr

David Cronenberg's son, Brandon, makes his film debut with this gore-filled horror flick about a company who deals in viruses collected from celebrities since people want to be infected with the same diseases as the ultra-famous.

2. "Barbarella" (1968) PG

The cult film, starring Jane Fonda as the sexy space babe of the title, may be overlong, but it's an eye-popping must-see '60s flashback. »

[Warning: This story contains spoilers from the midseason finale of Scandal, "Where the Sun Don't Shine."] Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) has her hands full. In addition to having to make the (tough!) romantic decision between moving to Vermont and making jam with President Fitzgerald Grant (Tony Goldwyn) or standing in the sun with hero Jake Ballard (Scott Foley), the Gladiator has spent the better part of season four hunting down the head of black-ops group B613, who also happens to be her father.  During the season four winter finale, Rowan (Joe Morton) again evaded his daughter —

[Warning: Spoilers ahead from the season-four midseason finale, "Where the Sun Don't Shine," of ABC's Scandal.] ABC's Scandal came thisclose to finally ridding itself of Rowan Pope (Joe Morton) and the insanity of B613 during Thursday's midseason finale. Olivia (Kerry Washington), Jake (Scott Foley) and Fitz (Tony Goldwyn) teamed up to take down the man responsible for putting hits out on all of the former black-ops groupies — including Quinn (Katie Lowes) and Jake.

Scandal, Ep. 4.09, “Where the Sun Don’t Shine” excels at tense, scary family conflict

21 November 2014 9:48 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Scandal, Season 4, Episode 9, “Where the Sun Don’t Shine”

Written by Mark Wilding

Directed by Tony Goldwyn

Airs Thursdays at 9pm Est on ABC

On this week’s Scandal, Olivia confronts both of her parents, Cyrus quits the White House, Jakes hunts down Rowan, Quinn reunites with an old lover, and Huck delivers the truth to his ex-girlfriend.

Scandal has always excelled at finales, so it’s no surprise that “Where the Sun Don’t Shine” is just as fun, twist-y, and shocking as it’s predecessors. Also, it’s obvious from the opening sequence that all actors, and director Tony Goldwyn (Fitz)!, are bringing their A-game.

As introduced last week, the biggest dilemma facing the characters in the episode is Rowan. Poor Olivia, she’s easily winning the Worst Parents of the Year award. As awful as the Popes are, both to their daughter and to other people, it »

Who Should Kill Rowan? 'Scandal' Stars Cast Their Votes

19 November 2014 3:00 PM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Every character on ABC's Scandal has a good reason to want to kill B613 baddie Rowan Pope (Joe Morton). But not everyone should be so deserving of that honor. Following last week's deadly near miss — when Rowan outsmarted Olivia (Kerry Washington), Fitz (Tony Goldwyn) and Jake (Scott Foley) in a bid to kill Command — the top Gladiator has demanded a "kill shot" on her father, setting up what promises to be an epic winter finale. The Hollywood Reporter hit the set of Shonda Rhimes' political thriller to quiz the cast on which Gladiator — or White House staffer! — should be the one to win the honor of taking

There are three certainties in life: Death, taxes and Papa Pope having the last laugh.

"He always finds a way!" Joe Morton tells TVGuide.com of his Scandal super-villain. "One of the joys of playing the character is people love to hate him. People say to me all the time on Twitter, 'Love the way you play the role. Don't like the character,' which is perfect. You want his demise, but at the same time, it's wonderful the way he manages to evade all this stuff. How is he going to get out of this again?"
