Beauty vs Beast: The Kindness of Strangers

Jason Adams fromMNPPhere,using this week's brand new "Beauty vs Beast"poll to celebrate the 48th birthday of the great Sofia Coppola,which is tomorrow.We are so lucky to have her!Quite honestly I think the world's been under-valuing her directing career,which's given us one great film after another after another.Her last one,2017's remake ofThe Beguiled,is where we're focusing today -- another entirely under-appreciated one if you ask me.While I've long been a fan of Don Siegel's sweaty 1971 version I consider Coppola's an improvement for how it spins itself off into a gothic fable of female empowerment gone to seed.It feels like a sister film to Nicole Kidman's other movie about haunted folks isolated during war-time,The Others-- seriously,go watch them back to back.That'll be an excellent evening at the movies.But until then...

PREVIOUSLY
Switching over to the Elder Coppola,it turns out it was too tough for us to vote for a war-mongering maniacwith last week'sApocalypse Nowpoll,even when he's played by Marlon Brando -- Martin Sheen's "Captain Willard"managed to score 57% of your vote instead.

Summed up byTom G:

"Shouldn't we NOT be voting for crazy people with too much power?"

Beauty vs Beast: Napalm Mornings

Jason fromMNPPhere with this week's "Beauty vs Beast"-- Francis Ford Coppola's filmApocalypse Nowhas been coming up in conversation a lot lately,and not just because my boyfriend kept accidentily getting the title of Gregg Araki's TV showNow Apocalypsebackwards.The film is celebrating its 40th anniversary this Friday,and besides doing a screening and conversation about the film at the Tribeca Film Fest last week Coppola's putting out what he's calling a "Final Cut"in August,in theaters and on blu-ray.It falls somewhere between the original release and the 2001 Redux cut,apparently.But no matter the cut it's the tension between Captain Benjamin L.Willard (Martin Sheen) and Colonel Walter E.Kurtz (Marlon Brando) that remains the the backbone of the film,and that's what we're investigating today...


PREVIOUSLYTwo weeks back most of us still hadn't seenAvengers Endgame,and now two billion dollars worth of us have.But all that money couldn't help Chris Pratt,wholost the contest against Thanos70 to 30%.Suck it,Star-lord.SaidTom G:

"Just like Jennifer Lawrence ran circles around [Pratt] in Passengers,Brolin literally ran galaxies around him."

Streaming: J Edgar Drinking Games & Elizabeth's Golden Foreshadowing

Do you purchase or rent DVDs movies anymore or just wait for streaming -- however long that takes?If you do the following titles have emerged in the past week on Blu-Ray or DVD:The Finest Hoursin which Chris Pine gets a man vs.ocean movie cuz Chris Hemsworth got one;Gods of Egyptwhich is terrible but in so-bad-it's-great way;How to Be Singlewhich is better than you'd think but way overstuffed but you should probably see it for another great performance variation on "the boyfriend"by Jake Lacy (he's got that market covered but he'ssogood at it with no two characters feeling like the same guy);Pride & Prejudice & Zombieswhich is fun for what it is if nothing more;also new areRace,Risen,Triple 9,andZoolander 2.

But on to the fun part,New to Streaming.Because,to quote the one and only Carrie Fisher:

Instant gratication takes too long.

Let's do our fun little freeze frame game on new streaming titles.The following films were frozen on one image completely at random to see what showed up.They're all new on either Netflix of Amazon Prime.Ready?Let's play!

J Edgar(2011) on Netflix

Charles Lindbergh.Lindbergh's baby has been kidnapped.

A fun drinking came while streamingJ Edgarin five easy steps
1.Take a drink every time you wish Clint Eastwood wasn't terrified of color
2.Take a drink every time you wish Tom Stern would throw a damn light on the set for once
3.Take a drink every time you see bad old age makeup in closeup
4.Take a drink every time you're glad AMPAS dodged a bullet on this one and it's not part of Oscar history
5.Die of alcohol poisoning.

Six Degrees of Separation (1993)

You said when artists dream they dream of money.
...I must be such an artist.

Love this movie.Stockard Channing was just sensational in it.(And what a great Best Actress year 1993 was)

Elizabeth: The Golden Age (2007)and more after the jump...
