Here’s What’s Leaving Netflix in July 2018

Netflix has announced the titles that will be leaving the streaming service in July 2018, and it’s thankfully a pretty thin list. There are some notable films that will be expiring, like the Oscar-winning legal thriller Michael Clayton, the underrated comedy Along Came Polly, and Richard Linklater’s masterful Before Midnight, but I’m not sure anyone’s going to be bemoaning the lack of availability for Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close anytime soon. It should also be pointed out that the Tom Cruise-fronted Cocktail expires next month and is far more enjoyable than you remember. It’…

The 7 Best Movies New to Netflix in April 2018

Spring is here, love is in the air, and everyone is finally ready to go back outside, but Netflix’s April offerings are giving us at least seven more compelling reasons to stay on the couch for at least another few weeks. This month brings an eclectic mix of new movies to the streaming platform, from the sweet Americana of “The Iron Giant” to the decidedly less sweet Americana of “Scarface” — from the mad brilliance of Philip Seymour Hoffman in “Along Came Polly” to the brilliant madness of the Wachowskis’ “Speed Racer.” We’ve also got “Deep Blue Sea” and David Fincher’s “Se7en,” two very different movies about two very different monsters (super sharks and Kevin Spacey, respectively).

Here are the seven best movies that are new to Netflix this April.

Movies New to Netflix in April: ‘Seven,’ ‘The Iron Giant,’ ‘Scarface’ and More

April showers might bring May flowers, but what to do during the rainy season? Why, modern movie-lover does when the weather outside is frightful, curl up with some Netflix. (Maybe get some chill in there, if you’re lucky). While not the most romantic of movies, classic crime lovers can enjoy Brian De Palma’s “Scarface,” which lands on the platform next month. After you get your fix of an infinitely quotable and smoldering Al Pacino, you can jump ahead to the equally as disturbing David Fincher classic, “Seven.”

A few tear-jerking Oscar winners also head to Netflix in April, including the Nicole Kidman, Renée Zellweger-starring “Cold Mountain,” and Roberto Benigni’s WWII drama “Life Is Beautiful.” For lighter fare, check out “The Iron Giant,” or both live-action “The Flinstones” movies (for my Rosie O’Donnell die-hards).

Hopefully, that’s enough to keep you busy until May. Check out

Here’s What’s Coming to Netflix in April 2018

Netflix has released the full list of new titles coming to the streaming service in April 2018. It’s a pretty deep bench, as the list of movies available to stream ranges from cult favorites like Speed Racer and Sin City to stone-cold classics like Seven and The Iron Giant. There are also a few “new releases” like Despicable Me 3, but really the most important addition here is Along Came Polly—a true comedic gem. There’s quite a bit of Netflix original content coming in April as well, including the streaming service’s highly anticipated Lost in …

Fantastic Trailer For the Australian Western Sweet Country with Sam Neill

I've got a trailer here for you to watch for an Australian western called Sweet County. The movie is a period piece set in the outback in 1929 and it's based on a true story about a man who is on the run through the harsh landscape of outback with his wife after he murders another man is self-defense.I'm a big fan of westerns and this movie looks pretty damn good. Here's the story description:

Sam, a middle-aged Aboriginal man, works for a preacher in the outback of Australia's Northern Territory. When Harry, a bitter war veteran, moves into a neighbouring outpost, the preacher sends Sam and his family to help Harry renovate his cattle yards. But Sam's relationship with the cruel and ill-tempered Harry quickly deteriorates, culminating in a violent shootout in which Sam kills Harry in self-defence. As a result, Sam becomes a wanted criminal for the murder of a white man,

Who is Better: Alec Baldwin in “The Departed” or in “Along Came Polly?”

Alec Baldwin as a tough guy or Alec Baldwin as the goofy, overplayed boss. Who’s better? In The Departed he’s a tough as nails but somehow less than admirable police captain, while in Along Came Polly he’s the slightly off kilter boss that is so quirky he’s funny. It’s kind of hard to pick between the two since it’s really amusing to see him in both roles. But if I had to pick, my favorite, it would be Captain Ellerby from The Departed. It’s not an easy pick really since in both films he plays a sound role that sees

Jena Friedman to Direct Comedy ‘Serial Dater’ With Imogen Poots, Timothy Simons

Jena Friedman to Direct Comedy ‘Serial Dater’ With Imogen Poots, Timothy Simons
Stand-up comedian and former “The Daily Show” producer Jena Friedman is to make her directorial debut with comedy “Serial Dater,” which stars Imogen Poots (“Green Room,” “Knight of Cups”), Timothy Simons (HBO’s “Veep”) and John Cho (“Star Trek” and “Harold and Kumar” franchises). WestEnd Films has started international sales in Berlin.

The movie, which shoots this summer, follows Jane, a career-driven 30-year-old surviving singledom in New York City. “Enter Ted, a.k.a. the perfect guy: he’s handsome, he’s fun, he’s smart. Oh, and he might also be a serial killer,” according to a statement. “And if he is… is being in a loving relationship with a serial killer worse than going back to being a single woman in her 30s?”

“’Serial Dater’ is a dark romantic comedy about love and relationships, and the compromises we make to sustain them,” Friedman said. “The goal is let

The Lrm Interview with Why Him? Director John Hamburg

For many years, John Hamburg was known as the guy who wrote Meet the Parents and its sequels, but in 2009, he directed a comedy that would become a popular favorite, I Love You, Man, starring Paul Rudd and Jason Segel. It also helped solidify the terms “bromance” and “man-cave” in the public vernacular.

Hamburg returns this week with Why Him? a comedy that pits Bryan Cranston against James Franco in the high concept of a father having to adjust to his daughter’s new boyfriend. In the case of Franco, he’s playing an eccentric billionaire named Laird Mayhew, while Cranston plays the straight-ahead Ned Fleming, Midwest father of Zoey Deutch’s Stephanie, who has been seeing Laird without her family knowing. To make up for it, Laird invites Ned, his wife (Megan Mullally) and Stephanie’s younger brother Scotty (Griffin Gluck) out to his Silicon Valley mansion over the holidays to impress them.

Review: ‘Why Him?’ Is No Christmas Classic, But At Least James Franco Packs a Sack Full of Laughs

Review: ‘Why Him?’ Is No Christmas Classic, But At Least James Franco Packs a Sack Full of Laughs
I believe it was the great Anton Chekhov who said that “If you show in the first act a glass cube encasing a dead moose that’s been entombed in its own urine, in the third act it simply must explode all over James Franco, with the stuffed creature’s testicles landing in the mouth of a hapless supporting character.” An insightful and unusually prescient guy, that Chekhov, even if he never wrote anything quite as pungent as John Hamburg’s “Why Him?”

A dumb, gross, and sometimes hilarious holiday movie that exists at the nexus between the cringe comedies of Ben Stiller and the bromantic opuses of Judd Apatow, “Why Him?” painlessly marries the formulaic body horror of “Meet the Parents” to the improv-driven, reference-heavy sweetness of “Knocked Up.” It’s not as memorable as the former nor as smart (or sincere) as the latter, but — and this is
