New to Streaming: ‘Arrival,’ ‘A Separation,’ ‘The Edge of Seventeen,’ ‘The Love Witch,’ and More

3 February 2017 9:48 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

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.

A Bigger Splash (Luca Guadagnino)

Despite a loose script that justifies little, Italian director Luca Guadagnino’s follow-up feature to his glorious melodrama I Am Love is a sweaty, kinetic, dangerously unpredictable ride of a film. One is frustrated by the final stroke of genius that never came, but boy was it fun to spend two hours inside such a whirlwind of desires, mind games, delirious sights and sounds. »

'War on Everyone' Review: Buddy-Cop Comedy Gets High on Retro Bad-Boy Supply

2 February 2017 8:46 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Remember the Nineties? Specifically, that decade's subgenre of films that proliferated during the A.T. (After Tarantino) era, the ones featuring retro-hip musical deep cuts and gallows-humor dialogue dotting horrific gunfights? Usually the antiheroes were criminals; in the case of writer-director John Michael McDonagh's tart-tongued throwback, they're police officers. And from the moment that Terry (Alexander Skarsgård) and Bob (Michael Peña) show up, chasing down a street performer – "Always wondered if you hit a mime, does he make a sound?" – you realize you've entered some sort of Lethal Weapon through the looking glass. »

Review Round-Up: ‘Let’s Be Evil’ & ‘War on Everyone’

2 February 2017 6:01 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Let’S Be Evil

Stars: Elizabeth Morris, Kara Tointon, Elliot James Langridge, Isabelle Allen, Jamie Bernadette, Brooke Johnston, Martin Owen, Helene Wilson, Paul Casar, Jonathan Willis, Billie Wilson, Aimee Wright | Written by Elizabeth Morris, Martin Owen, Jonathan Willis | Directed by Martin Owen

Desperately in need of money to care for a sick parent, Jenny (Morris) takes a job supervising children at a learning centre for gifted students. But when she and two other new employees are ushered into a maximum-security underground bunker where eerily robotic children are outfitted with augmented reality glasses, Jenny finds herself thrust into a disturbing technological experiment in which she is an unwitting player in a terrifying virtual game.

Techno-horror is a genre that, given my previous experiences with films of this nature, is really hard to get right. The reliance on the technology within, techno-babble et al. can, and often does, overwhelm the story the filmmakers are trying to tell. »

Review: War On Everyone, A Hilarious Affront to All That Is Decent

2 February 2017 6:00 AM, PST | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

Within its first 10 minutes, War on Everyone smashes at least two dozen stereotypes familiar to anyone who has ever watched a cop movie made by a Hollywood studio, doing so in a rollicking and hilarious fashion. It's a barrage of silly sight gags and punchy one-liners that is simultaneously silly and smart, a series of over the top explosions that blow up, one after the other, to ever greater effect. When things finally slow down, it's only for a moment to allow the audience to catch its collective breath and ask, perhaps, where can this crazy thing possibly go from here? Writer and director John Michael McDonagh, who previously made the tight, intense drama Calvary, here returns to the rough, black comic territory of...

Win a War On Everyone Blu-ray signed by writer-director John Michael McDonagh

2 February 2017 12:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

To celebrate the release of War On Everyone – available now on Digital Download, DVD & Blu-ray – we are giving away a copy on Blu-ray signed by writer-director John Michael McDonagh!

John Michael McDonagh, the award winning writer/director of The Guard and Calvary, heads stateside for this unapologetically offensive buddy movie comedy thriller, starring True Blood’s Alexander Skarsgård and End of Watch’s Michael Peña, as a pair of crooked cops the likes of which you’ve never seen before.

Skarsgård and Peña really shine as the corrupt cops who get out of their depth, and share some wonderfully surreal, part-improvised moments, aided and abetted by a superb support casts that boasts Paul Reiser, Westworld sensation Tessa Thompson, and Caleb Landry Jones, a stand-out as strip club manager Birdwell.

Suffused with McDonagh’s trademark jet black humour, littered here with a generous helping of near-the-knuckle, take-no-prisoners gags, and featuring an off kilter, »

‘War On Everyone’ Exclusive Clip: Alexander Skarsgård and Michael Peña Are Dirty Cops In John Michael McDonagh’s New Comedy

4 January 2017 9:00 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

This year, John Michael McDonagh’s third feature film will finally receive a release after spending all last year on the festival circuit. His new film “War On Everyone” follows two crooked cops — Terry (Alexander Skarsgård) and Bob (Michael Peña) — who frame and blackmail criminals all over town. Looking for the ultimate pay-off, they try to extort a strip-club manager (Caleb Landry Jones) and his eccentric, junkie boss (Theo James), but get more than they bargained for when their hair-brained scheme uncovers a bigger secret.  The film co-stars Malcolm Barrett (“Timeless”), Tessa Thompson (“Dear White People”), David Wilmot (“Six Shooter”), Stephanie Sigman (“Narcos”) and Paul Reiser (“Mad About You”). Watch an exclusive clip from the film below.
