Beauty vs Beast: School's Out Forever

Jason from Mnpp here with our weekly "Beauty vs Beast" -- tomorrow is the 20th anniversary of Wes Anderson's film Rushmore, and so you celebrate the battle between Max Fischer (Jason Schwartzman) and Herman Blume (Bill Murray) we shall. This was Anderson's second film (after Bottle Rocket) and an instant cult hit - it only made 17 million dollars in theaters but I was in college at the time and believe you me, us youngins loved it right out of the gate.

Now it's rightly heralded as a classic - you're not going to hear an unkind word from me on the hermetically crafted direction that Wes started taking his film-making after this but Rushmore does feel airy in a way that he's moved far far away from (especially with the to the millimeter specificity of his animated efforts) and it might be nice to see him sample some of this looseness again?

You're Not Imagining Things; Lucas Hedges Is Everywhere Right Now

We were so thrilled when we heard that Garrard Conley's memoir Boy Erased was getting a big-screen adaptation written and directed by Joel Edgerton. The story follows Jared, a teenager living in a small Arkansas town who is unwillingly outed to his devout Baptist parents and subsequently must attend a gay conversion therapy program through his church. It's a compelling story that's already been getting a ton of buzz, and we have been counting down the days until its Nov. 2 release.

That excitement quadrupled when we heard the power players who would head up the cast. Ever since Nicole Kidman knocked our socks off in Big Little Lies, we've been patiently waiting for more opportunities to see her own the theater. She has been cast as Nancy, Jared's mother, and we can hear the Oscar buzz already. Then, we have New Zealander Russell Crowe depicting Jared's pastor father, Marshall.

New to Streaming: ‘Damsel,’ ‘Maniac,’ ‘Clouds of Sils Maria,’ ‘Custody,’ ‘The Witch,’ and More

With a seemingly endless amount of streaming options — not only the titles at our disposal, but services themselves — we’re highlighting the noteworthy titles that have recently hit platforms. Check out this week’s selections below and an archive of past round-ups here.

Clouds of Sils Maria (Olivier Assayas)

Movies about making movies often get a bad rap; there’s just a presumed pretentiousness that goes along with watching filmmakers and actors defending their craft. So when it turns out that Clouds of Sils Maria is actually a beautifully directed and acted defense of the timelessness and universal value of storytelling in all forms, what could have been a European Birdman actually becomes something so much more. – Brian R.

Where to Stream: FilmStruck

Custody (Xavier Legrand)

It didn’t win the Oscar for best live action short in 2014, but Xavier Legrand’s Just Before Losing Everything was by far my favorite nominee.

Edward Norton Is Still Roasting ‘The Incredible Hulk’ 10 Years Later: ‘I Wanted a Better Script’

Edward Norton Is Still Roasting ‘The Incredible Hulk’ 10 Years Later: ‘I Wanted a Better Script’
Iron Man” is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year, which means it’s been a decade since the Marvel Cinematic Universe first launched with Robert Downey Jr. stepping into the billionaire shoes of Tony Stark. Summer 2008 was a milestone year for superhero cinema with “Iron Man” and Christopher Nolan’s “The Dark Knight,” but a third superhero movie opened in between those two titles: “The Incredible Hulk.”

Directed by Louis Leterrier and starring Edward Norton as Bruce Banner, “The Incredible Hulk” was the second entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Unlike “Iron Man,” however, the release was met with poor reviews and lackluster box office returns. Norton famously fought producers behind the scenes for script and editing changes both during and after production, so much so that he was removed from the role and replaced by Mark Ruffalo in the McU. Ten years later, Norton is still roasting his ill-fated superhero movie.
