‘La La Land’ Trailer: A Magical Musical Tour Through Los Angeles

I guess there’s not much reason for me to watch the new La La Land trailer. I saw the movie back at the Toronto Film Festival. Why watch the coming attractions for a movie I’ve already seen? Frankly, I watched it (twice) because I want to see La La Land again, and I can’t right now, and watching the trailer is the next best option.

FilmStruck, TCM and Criterion’s New Streaming Service, Is Live

After a couple of minor hiccups and delays, FilmStruck, the new streaming service from Turner Classic Movies and the Criterion Collection is live at FilmStruck.com. You can sign up for a free 14-day trial right now; after that it’ll cost you either $6.99 per month for the basic plan, $10.99 per month for the plan that includes Criterion Collection films, or $99 for a full year of both, which according to my incredible arithmetic skills, is about a $30 discount from the month-to-month pricing.

A Step-by-Step Consumer Guide to Good Theater Projection

Rarely a week goes by these days without someone proclaiming movies dead or dying or zombified and feasting on the brains of their victims. (That’s what you get for turning your brain off at the theater!) Mainstream Hollywood has seen better days, but film as an art form is just fine; in a world where Moonlight, The Handmaiden, Arrival, and Loving are all competing for screen space, there’s still life left in movies yet. I’m more concerned about movie theaters, where the presentation of those films seems to get worse every single year.

In it, Trump is heard bragging, in extremely lewd terms, about his treatment of women. Trump dismissed this conversation, which was recorded on an open microphone moments before an interview for Access Hollywood which he was fully aware was about to occur, as “locker room talk.”

The Criterion Collection Leaves Hulu on November 11

The good news is that the Criterion Collection is partnering with Turner Classic Movies to create a new, classic-movie-focused streaming service called FilmStruck. That launches on October 19 with hundreds of movies, new original content, tailored recommendations, and supplemental materials. The bad news is that means the Criterion is leaving Hulu, its streaming home for a number of years. Starting on November 11, FilmStruck becomes Criterion’s exclusive streaming home, and Hulu loses its Criterion site.

The 25 Dumbest Sequel Subtitles Ever

The act of titling a sequel is fraught with peril. Do you go with just the number? Or how about a Roman numeral? Do you try for the ‘Part 2’ thing? Do you just add an ‘s’ to the original title? (Are you adding multiple versions of the title character? That helps.) Do you just eliminate half the title? Do you change the title completely? Or do you dare try for ... a subtitle?
