The 7 Best Movies Coming to Netflix in November 2017

The 7 Best Movies Coming to Netflix in November 2017
It’s a good thing that Netflix already has the “Gilmore Girls” for all of those sweet Thanksgiving vibes, because the streaming giant is coming down from that Halloween sugar high in a bad way and following last month’s blockbuster slate with a relatively unremarkable roster of new additions. Proving that there isn’t much rhyme or reason behind when they’re able to upload new movies (it’s hard to curate around contract rights), the platform’s latest batch of titles is heavy on horror movies and light on seasonal fare.

Still, it’s not all bad news for those of you who might be looking for something to stream while you’re home for the holidays. Comfort watches like “Casper” and “Field of Dreams” are perfect things to put on when you’re immobilized by a stomach full of turkey, and you can even go for an

Drunk Time Traveler Warns Us of Coming Alien Attack

Drunk Time Traveler Warns Us of Coming Alien Attack
Casper, Wyoming is a pretty small town where not a whole lot of exciting things happen, but that all changed last week when a drunk time traveler was taken into custody by Casper police. The man was arrested for drunk in public and had a pretty convincing story about the impending alien invasion and his explanation of his time traveling abilities. Though he was not able to provide a specific date, the aliens will be arriving sometime next year and apparently alcohol contains the secrets behind time travel, which was hinted at during the end of the first Back to the Future movie when Doc throws a beer can into Mr. Fusion.

According to the police report, Bryant Johnson was approached by law enforcement for drunk and disorderly conduct and asked to speak with "the president of the town." Johnson reportedly told authorities that he wanted to warn the good

Five Things You Didn’t Know About Devon Sawa

Everyone has a few actors who they love growing up. As we grow up, it is only natural to wonder what the actors are up to. Sometimes, looking up actors from one’s childhood can reveal things that one didn’t expect. Such is the case for fans of 90s star Devon Sawa, whose talents and background are actually far more diverse than one might expect. Sawa rose to fame thanks to performances in Casper and Slc Punk!

The big blockbusters of summer 2018

Simon Brew May 9, 2017

Mission: Impossible, Avengers, Dwayne Johnson, Jurassic World, Ant-Man and more are lining up to meet you next summer. Oh, and The Statham.

With summer blockbuster season 2017 in full swing, and with Fast & Furious 8 speeding over the $1bn mark already, a bunch of filmmakers are furiously putting together their films for release this time next year (or thereabouts). Here, as things stand, is the state of summer blockbuster season 2018. We’ve veered towards UK release dates on the whole, but as always, things can quickly change.

Also, we’ve not included unnamed films: Universal, for instance, has reserved a slot for one of its classic monster universe movies, but not told anybody what it is yet. As more information pops up, we’ll keep this list up to date…

Christina Ricci Opens Up About Life at Home and Motherhood: 'Marriage Shows You Your Flaws'
Christina Ricci is getting real about marriage and motherhood.

The 37-year-old actress dishes on her home life, and reveals how marriage exposed her "flaws," in a new interview with Net-a-Porter's weekly digital magazine, The Edit.

Watch: This Is What the Cast of 'Now and Then' Looked Like Then and Now

"Marriage shows you your flaws in how you deal with things, and having a child forces you to grow up at the speed of light," said Ricci, who married James Heerdegen, in 2013. "I'm a completely different person than I was before I had my child."

But parenting her now 3-year-old son Frankie, isn't the only thing that forced Ricci to grow up: "Because I was so celebrated for being a child, I think I held onto that immaturity for a very long time," she confessed. "It was the thing that made me special. Then at a certain point, like 35, it

Devon Sawa is hopping on the nostalgia train. The '90s heartthrob turned to Twitter late Thursday to get fans excited about two possible ideas: sequels for his hit films Casper and Now and Then.

Exclusive: Christina Ricci Reinvents Herself Again
On January 27, Christina Ricci will make her debut as nm1541232 autoZelda Sayre[/link] Fitzgerald on Amazon's new series Z: The Beginning of Everything, a fictional account of the flamboyant socialite who swept F. Scott Fitzgerald, one of the literary geniuses of the 20th century, off his feet.

“I would never be cast in this part,” Ricci says frankly about playing Fitzgerald on the series, which she not only stars on but co-developed and produces. “With this, I created my own opportunity because this is not a part I would’ve been cast in in a million years.”

Although parts may have beckoned toward a more traditional leading-lady rise to stardom early in her career, Ricci, now 36, has come to terms with the fact that she didn’t fit into that role. “I am not considered a romantic lead by traditional standards,” she says. “I've never been cast in a rom-com or a romance or anything like that.

A Series Of Unfortunate Events Season 1 Review

This review is based on the first four episodes, which were provided prior to us.

Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events was a Ya book series like few others, one that relished in the morose, the bizarre and the tragically hilarious lives of the Baudelaire children, a trio of precocious, remarkably-astute orphans struck with endless tribulations after their house is burned to the ground, everything they owned is destroyed and their parents are horrifically consumed in flames — and that’s before they meet Count Olaf, their wicked, deprived, massively selfish legal guardian who’ll stop at nothing to steal his adopted kids’ enormous fortune.

It was a deliciously absurd, gleefully disdainful, compulsively wicked and thesaurus-friendly 13-part collection, the kind that tickled the fancy of the right kind of young literary consumer (notably, those who enjoy their comedy dark), though one that didn’t quite get the cinematic transition

Spielberg at 70: drama, Jurassic Park, and the 1990s

Paul Bullock Dec 15, 2016

We continue to salute Steven Spielberg's 70th birthday, with a look at the decade that transformed his career: the 1990s

The 1990s delivered everything Steven Spielberg could have hoped for to enjoy a successful third decade in the film industry. He restated his position as Hollywood's King of the Blockbuster with Jurassic Park, he found critical and awards success with Schindler's List and Saving Private Ryan, and he used the platform the former offered to set up a charitable organisation (The Shoah Foundation) that’s gone on to become one of the most significant Holocaust resources in the world. By anybody's standards, that's a pretty solid ten-year stint. And yet, the 90s stands as arguably Spielberg's weakest period, a time of unqualified success and curious lethargy, a time of enriching experimentation and self-defeating regression. At times, Spielberg consciously seemed to take one step forwards and another backwards.

The early screenplays of Jj Abrams

Mark Harrison Sep 13, 2016

Before he hit big with Star Wars and Star Trek, Jj Abrams was penning films such as Forever Young, Regarding Henry and Armageddon...

Jj Abrams is one of the most powerful people in Hollywood right now. Over his career in the movies, he's written, directed, produced, acted and played a wicked keyboard solo on Cool Guys Don't Look At Explosions, and through his production company Bad Robot, his name is counted among the credits of massive franchises like Cloverfield, Mission: Impossible, Star Trek and of course Star Wars. He's more of a household name than most filmmakers of his generation and we sometimes wish we wanted anything as much as he wants that Steven Spielberg status.

You can't blame him when you hear about his first paid job in the film industry. Returning a bunch of Spielberg's personal super-8 home movies that he discovered after his

Dear readers, we'd like to discuss sexual awakenings for a minute.

If Comcast Deal Happens, How Would Dwa and Illumination Co-Exist?

Ever since an October car accident shattered his right arm and wrist, Jeffrey Katzenberg has been methodically gripping and releasing his hand. During meetings, at meals, during any stray down time, he works the wounded wing.

The DreamWorks Animation CEO has been told by physical therapists that it could take more than a year to regain full mobility. But he continues to flex the hand obsessively, determined to prove the medical community wrong and beat expectations, again.

Katzenberg has brought that trademark tenacity and single-mindedness to the table in recent years, as he looked for a company willing to pay a premium price for his animation studio, which has been struggling to gain solid footing as a stand-alone theatrical studio, with a growing television production unit.

His persistence appears to be on the verge paying off, with Comcast reportedly offering more than $3 billion to acquire Dwa, a significant premium over
