StreamFix: Movie classics on Netflix written by women over 40

21 April 2015 2:55 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Meryl Streep, who is officially a genius angel sent from a better dimension, is funding a screenwriting lab for women over 40. The initiative aims to create opportunities for that contingent, and it'll be run by New York Women in Film and Television and Iris, a collective of women filmmakers. Because this idea is so brilliant, we'll toast a bunch of 40+-year-old female screenwriters whose works are available on Netflix now. The Kids are All Right (Lisa Cholodenko) Aside from the fact that "The Kids are All Right" feels like a prime James L. Brooks feature, the 2010 family drama gives you a myriad of irresistible moments and performances. Annette Bening is biting and funny as an alcoholic lesbian mother; Julianne Moore is harried and loving as her conflicted wife. Mark Ruffalo, Mia Wasikowska, and Josh Hutcherson add perfectly pitched dramedy with their sincere roles. You want to hug this movie, but »

Meryl is a Rock Star

5 February 2015 8:29 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

First image of Meryl Streep as a rock star in Jonathan Demme's Ricki & The Flash via People magazine. Very Melissa Etheridge. (Is it just me or is Meryl getting younger?) So excited for this movie. Demme is always at his best when he focuses on actresses (Married to the Mob, Rachel Getting Married, Silence of the Lambs) and who doesn't love to hear La Streep sing?

Uh oh... I feel a list coming on

10 greatest silver screen uses of Meryl's astounding pipes...

01. "You Don't Know Me" - as Suzanne Vale in Postcards from the Edge (1990)

02. "He's Me Pal" - as Helen Archer in Ironweed (1987)

03. "Stay With Me" - as The Witch in Into the Woods (2014)

04. "I See Me" - as Madeleine Ashton in Death Becomes Her (1992)

05. "Amazing Grace" - as Karen Silkwood in Silkwood (1983)

06. "My Minnesota Home" - as Yolanda Johnson in Prairie Home Companion (2006)

07. "I'm Checkin' Out" - »

10 Times Meryl Streep Rocked Harder Than You

4 February 2015 3:00 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Meryl Streep is definitely better than everyone, but sometimes she also rocks in addition to her sheer superiority. Did you see People's new still of Mary Louise Streep in "Ricki and the Flash," the new Jonathan Demme movie written by Diablo Cody? She's wielding a guitar and looking like the fiercest axwoman ever. Let's commemorate all the other times she rocked our worlds.  1. She checked out just fine in "Postcards from the Edge" 2. That time she basically announced she's sick of guys calling "The Deer Hunter" their favorite. Meryl has openly opined about how much she likes when male fans say they enjoy her performance in, say, "The Devil Wears Prada" and not "The Deer Hunter," the movie she's used to male fans approaching her about. Here's a comment she made about her role in the epic Michael Cimino film: "They needed a girl between the two guys, and I was it. »

'Boyhood's' Patricia Arquette can't believe she beat Meryl Streep: 'It is amazing'

12 January 2015 12:14 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Beverly Hills - Patricia Arquette has one word for what it feels like to beat out Meryl Streep for an award: "Surreal." Okay, she actually had a few words. "I don’t even know if I am awake yet," said the "Boyhood" actress backstage after winning the Golden Globe for Best Lead Actress in a Drama. "This is an amazing dream that I am having that continues on. It is amazing. [Meryl's] work in 'Ironweed' may be some of the best work I have ever seen on earth so it is a great honor." As for the movie she won for - Richard Linklater's 12-years-in-the-making family drama and Best Motion Picture Drama winner - Arquette admitted that she didn't want the experience to end.
