Watch at Home: Beach bums,doppelgangers,euphoria,and giant little ones...

Nathaniel R giving you the heads up on what's available to you now to screen at home.It's a big weekend all told in terms of titles suddenly available

New on DVD/Blu-Ray/Rental
Beach Bum-the latest from Harmony Korine.Ihatedit but Murtada kinda liked it as you probably heard on the podcast
Giant Little Ones- underseen drama about the confusion of sexual fluidity in the coming-of-age years
Hotel Mumbai- well reviewed terrorism drama starring Dev Patel and Armie Hammer
Under the Silver Lake- David Robert Mitchell's bizarrely indulgent noir,equal parts tedious and memorable,his follow up to the incredible breakthroughIt Follows
Us- Jordan Peele's horror blockbuster with terrifically inventive performances from the whole cast.

iTunes deals and streaming roulette after the jump...

Also out today: the year's top grossing subtitled feature (thus far),the spanish language comedyNo Manches Frida 2,the animated featureWonder Park,and the Christian sports dramaRun the Race.

Helen Mirren,Harrison Ford,and River Phoenix in Mosquito Coast (1986)

Notable iTunes 99¢ Deals
Lots of eccentric choices this week on the cheap including the much chattered about Nicolas Cage cult filmMandy,the Brazilian lesbian werewolf dramaGood Manners,the racy French gay-porn-set dramaKnife + Heart,Taron Egerton's unlovedRobin Hoodvehicle,Harrison Ford'sThe Mosquito Coast(from that brief period where he was doing prestige drama in the 80s),Nicole Kidman's first international hitDead Calmand her biggest solo-led hitThe Others,and one of the greatest movies ever made,Rosemary's Baby(which we covered extensively here).

New to Streaming

Some people might say that you lack a moral compass.

Jessica Jones S3(Netflix)
Benjamin Walker guest-stars in the final season.Yaaas.He should be a much bigger star.In truth though i'm perplexed at why I love this show.It's relentlessly dour in mood,cynical in worldview,super-repetitive,and the leading lady hasn't changed her outfit for three entire seasons (!!!!) making this the single worst job any costume designer has ever had on TV.Allof those things should make this an immediate thumbs down given my usual predilections.And yet...I keep watching.

Thank you.

Tadpole(Hulu)
Remember when digital was first being used for movies and lots of indies looked terribly dingy or like they were VHS movies blown up for the bigscreen?The comedyTadpolewas one of those but I remember being obsessed with Bebe Neuwirth as the older woman who starts an affair with the 15 year old stepson (Aaron Stanford -whatever happened to him?) of her best friend (Sigourney Weaver).It's the kind of comedy that wouldneverbe made today,given the underage sex comedy nature of it.

Five hours in London and trouble already finds me.

Yardie(Prime)
The directorial debut of Idris Elba.An unfair truth: Unless a great actor is born to be a phenomenal director (aka Greta Gerwig...though it's rare),I generally wish they would stick to being fabulous screen stars!I mean we need Idris on the other side of the camera,don'cha think?

Things are about to get interesting.

Trinkets S1(Netflix)
Some sort of LGBTQ series about teenage girl shoplifters?Have any of you tried this out?

[TEXTING] Promise you're not a serial killer?

Euphoriapremiere (HBOGo)
Here's one of the reasons we do streaming roulette each week.Wasn't even interested in this Zendaya show until I saw the cinematography / color.Now we must sample this premiere.Hope it's good.Have you tried it yet?

Is that Martha Plimpton's eye we see in Mosquito Coast?

They tried to make Benjamin Walker happen.Like Garrett Hedlund and others.Hollywood's always sold us the Idea that "everybody"could be a movie star.Someone powerful just had to look at a girl or a guy on the street and say "I'm gonna make you a movie star!"They made a guy with no eyebrows or lips - talented - a movie star - Spencer Tracy.Animals too - Lassie,Rin Tin Tin,Benji...Today they can't even if the person is beautiful,sexy,talented,charming,can sing and dance...Times changed...

I rewatched "The Devil Wears Prada",which is on Hulu,and I had forgotten how funny that movie is - "By all means,move at a glacial pace,you know you that thrills me","gird your loins"- just so many great lines.

I'm excited to rewatch "The Others","Us",and "Rosemary's Baby".

I got all the way through JJ S3 and I just...couldn't...with where S3 went with Trish.Kind of from the first episode.The instant she said "Oh,hell no"I went "What?First,the gag is getting kind of old,Netflix.Second,you have absolutely established her before this as someone who would go for that.Third,it's actually less cute when you have the putdown actually winkingly reference the codename.Like if Luke Cage said 'What is up with this powerless s***?' Fourth: Even though that costume is supposed to look cheap and lame,that would easily be top 5 MCU costumes (that's both TV AND movies,so easily be the best Marvel Netflix costume) if they actually went with it.Fifth and finally: So,what's her actual costume going to be...?Oh.Ugh.That Daredevil's S2/S3 costume is still the best actual costume of the Netflix branch is...shameful."

I watched Beach Bum finally.I....sort of liked it,but it couldve gone way further.Or worked better as a tv show.Id love to see Matt get an Oscar nom tho.And Isla is literally immortal or something because that body and face do not look 42.
