We all love The Great British Bake-Off (or, as it’s referred to in the States, The Great British Baking Show), and considering the competition show’s massive popularity even amongst people who can’t boil water without catching something on fire, it was only a matter of time before Hollywood came up with a mockumentary version. Enter Cook Off!
For a lot of young folks, Michael Keaton is their first introduction to a cinematic Batman, his version of the Caped Crusader in Tim Burton’s 1989 movie still considered one of the most lauded and fun interpretations of Bruce Wayne to this day. But even the best actors need to know when to call it quits, and Keaton recently explained what drove him to say no to Batman 3.
MoviePass is one of those helpful ticketing deals that allows subscribers to see multiple movies a month at a reduced rate. For one monthly payment, you can see one movie per day essentially for free, and if you’re someone who goes to the movies a lot and can feel those box office prices squeezing your wallet dry, it’s always been a pretty good investment. Today, it turned into a ridiculously good investment.
Close Encounters of the Third Kind will forever be one of sci-fi cinema’s most lasting cultural touchstones. One of Spielberg’s best, it’s a beautiful tale of wonder, obsession, and humanity’s relationship with the rest of the cosmos. It’s the kind of movie that posits that, rather than conquer us, all aliens really want to do is be our friends, and it’s coming back to theaters this September in a gorgeous 4K re-release.
When it comes to natural disaster movies, the bigger, the better. San Andreas was delightful in its boorish stupidity, The Perfect Storm is a stone-cold classic, and don’t even get me started on how excited I am for Geostorm. Man against nature is the oldest plot in history, which is why it’s about darn time we saw Josh Brolin play a firefighter.
Invasion of the Body Snatchers is an undeniable sci-fi classic, the O.G. one-of-us-in-this-room-isn’t-human narrative, which is probably why it’s been remade so many, many times. The original 1954 novel The Body Snatchers by Jack Finney inspired the 1956 Don Siegel film, which was then remade in 1978, in 1993, and agin in 2007 with Daniel Craig and Nicole Kidman (The Invasion). So it should come as no surprise that Warner Bros. is making plans to reboot the story for the modern era.
Netflix has risen to the top of the pile when it comes to festival season acquisitions, the streaming giant cleaning up at this year’s Sundance, and poised to do the same at TIFF after causing Cannes to go into a tizzy. One of the funniest and most rave-reviewed films out of Sundance this year was Jack Black’s The Polka King, which starred Black as real-life Pennsylvania polka legend Jan Lewan, and Netflix has just snatched it up.
