New to Streaming: ‘Mulholland Dr.,’ ‘Death Note,’ ‘Nocturnal Animals,’ and More

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.

Berlin Syndrome (Cate Shortland)

While the recent 10 Cloverfield Lane and Room told stories of captivity with various hooks — science-fiction and the process of healing, respectively — Cate Shortland’s approach in her latest, harrowing drama Berlin Syndrome makes room for more nuance and depth. Locked in a Berlin apartment, there is little hope for our protagonist for nearly the entire runtime. And while some of the story’s turns can feel overtly manipulative,

Romance Turns to Terror for Teresa Palmer in U.S. Trailer for ‘Berlin Syndrome’

After an initial first look, a U.S. trailer has landed for the intensely harrowing thriller Berlin Syndrome, which has now also found a release date in the states. The film follows an Australian journalist (Teresa Palmer) whose romantic getaway in the titular city is turned to a nightmare when her newfound lover keeps her hostage.

Directed by Cate Shortland, we said in our review from Sundance, “While the recent 10 Cloverfield Lane and Room told stories of captivity with various hooks — science-fiction and the process of healing, respectively — Cate Shortland’s approach in her latest, harrowing drama Berlin Syndrome makes room for more nuance and depth. Locked in a Berlin apartment, there is little hope for our protagonist for nearly the entire runtime. And while some of the story’s turns can feel overtly manipulative, Shortland finds a bracing humanity in depicting the perverse situation of Stockholm syndrome.”

Teresa Palmer Gets Captured in First Trailer for ‘Berlin Syndrome’

Aren’t romantic getaways the best? Well, they are until your lover holds you hostage in their apartment, and Liam Neeson isn’t your father. This means Clare (Teresa Palmer) must use her own wits to try and escape. Helmed by Cate Shortland (Lore), judging from the first international trailer this film looks to tackle seriously the real issues of possession and dominance that are turned into limp kinks in the Fifty Shades series.

We said in our review from Sundance, “While the recent 10 Cloverfield Lane and Room told stories of captivity with various hooks — science-fiction and the process of healing, respectively — Cate Shortland’s approach in her latest, harrowing drama Berlin Syndrome makes room for more nuance and depth.

Sundance Review: ‘Berlin Syndrome’ Provides a Nuanced Eye at a Harrowing Situation

While the recent 10 Cloverfield Lane and Room told stories of captivity with various hooks — science-fiction and the process of healing, respectively — Cate Shortland’s approach in her latest, harrowing drama Berlin Syndrome makes room for more nuance and depth. Locked in a Berlin apartment, there is little hope for our protagonist for nearly the entire runtime. And while some of the story’s turns can feel overtly manipulative, Shortland finds a bracing humanity in depicting the perverse situation of Stockholm syndrome.

Attempting to figure out what she wants from life, Clare (Teresa Palmer) leaves her Brisbane home to head to Berlin where she spends her first days as a tourist photographing the architecture and meeting locals. One day at a crosswalk, she meets the initially charming, reserved Andi (Max Riemelt). After a few encounters, they go on a date and return to his secluded apartment where they make love, a

Allied review

Brad Pitt and Marion Cotillard lead Robert Zemeckis' new movie, Allied. Here's our review...

Brad's been here before. Seven years ago, a moustachioed Pitt led a ragtag band into a Nazi-killing scheme of gleeful brutality in Inglourious Basterds. Five years later, we met up Pitt, sans facial hair, in the bowels of a tank, dirty, tumbled, moral and muffled in Fury. Another two years on and it's barely a beat after Remembrance Day with Allied. For Pitt, this visit to 1940s Europe comes in much different circumstances. Again he's slaying Nazis, whilst swastikas litter the screen, but the similarities end somewhere around here.

We first meet Max Vatan parachuting into German-controlled Morocco, trudging across Tatooine-y vistas. Vatan, a sepia-toned spy, has been dropped behind enemy lines, tasked to meet up with deep-cover agent, Marianne Beausejour (Marion Cotillard), and assassinate the Nazi ambassador. Beausejour relishes in her fictional cover, schmoozing

‘Ninja: Immovable Heart’ DVD Review

Stars: Rob Baard, Roger Neave, Danny Glover, John Balazs, Blaze Broadway, Cassandra Gava, Aliante Youngdino, Jacob Fyfe, Vivian Langham, Jennifer Rose, Christopher Bunworth, Melinda Di Natale | Written by Rob Baard | Directed by John Balazs, Rob Baard

Ninjas, Danny Glover and a man wearing a terrible spandex suit – it’s like the 1980s never went away! Resolutely refusing to be trendy, Ninja: Immovable Heart blunders on head first into a story so niche you almost have to admire writer/director/star Rob Baard. For all its faults, there’s no doubting that this is a real labour of love for its multi-talented leading man, even if very little of it sticks.

No-one is more confused than sole famous name Danny Glover, who looks utterly perplexed for every moment he appears on screen. Locked in a small room (against an obvious CGI backdrop), Glover spends the whole time on his phone,

[Fantasia Review] Tank 432

Director Ben Wheatley is showing his eye for talent by putting his name behind a guy who’s worked closely with him since 2011’s Kill List. A filmmaker in his own right, camera operator Nick Gillespie has stayed by Wheatley’s side on every subsequent project up to and including the forthcoming Free Fire. This time around it’s he who’s providing the claustrophobic thriller as writer and director of Tank 432 (formerly known as Belly of the Bulldog). It’s a doozy too—all mood, atmosphere, and mystery with our own confusion about the action mirrored in those onscreen. All they know is that they have orders. Extract their prisoners, survive the war, and write everything down. But while they know what to do, the why seems universally out of reach.

Think The Maze Runner, but for adults. I’m not saying The Maze Runner is specifically for children,

Watch the trailer for British thriller Twenty Twenty-Four

A trailer has a arrived online for writer-director Richard Mundy’s Twenty Twenty-Four, a psychological thriller which takes place in an underground bunker in the not too distant future; check it out here…

A lone scientist named Roy maintains Plethura, an Underground Bunker for the coming nuclear disaster. Although conflicted with the fate of humanity, Roy keeps the bunker ever-prepared for those who will eventually come to populate it. But things take a dramatic turn when Roy becomes prematurely isolated. Locked in, and with no knowledge of what has happened up top, it becomes painfully clear that Roy is alone and nobody is coming for him. With only the bunker’s intelligent computer console Arthur for company, the claustrophobic walls of Plethura slowly tighten their grip on Roy.

After several strange and unexplainable events, our increasingly paranoid protagonist begins to confront the terrifying prospect that he may not be alone in the bunker.

Inside Look at the Game of Thrones Season 6 Premiere
Tonight, Game of Thrones aired it's season 6 premiere with the episode, "The Red Woman".

The Brand New Testament review – holy fantastical irreverence

In this unruly Belgian satire, God is a sadistic, filing-fixated resident of Brussels

In Jaco Van Dormael’s playfully blasphemous Belgian fantasy, God exists, lives in Brussels, and is a total bastard to his wife and daughter. Locked in a Gilliam-esque room of filing cabinets, his unholiness (played by Benoît Poelvoorde, who once turned heads and stomachs in Man Bites Dog) spends his days sadistically abusing the world’s population. Then, resourceful, resentful daughter Ea (Pili Groyne) commandeers his computer, texts the time and date of their deaths to every living soul, and escapes through a washing machine into the wonderland of the world. Here, she must assemble six random apostles while steering clear of her wrathful dad, who is getting a taste of his own earthly medicine. It’s divertingly unruly stuff, which comes on like a cross between Powell and Pressburger’s A Matter of Life and Death

New Skeletor Statue from Sideshow Collectibles

  • DailyDead
The people of Eternia would find it difficult not to bow before the awesome features of Sideshow Collectibles' new Skeletor statue.

Priced at $449.99 and expected to ship between November 2016 and January 2017, Sideshow's new, limited edition Skeletor statue stands over 21 inches tall, weighs in at 15 pounds, and comes with two skull displays.
