"Love this write-up,and love Southland Tales in all its loopy glory."-Ben1283

"I saw this in the theater with a friend who (like me) has a very high tolerance for obscure,messy film.We both left the screening saying,'What the hell WAS that?' "- RV

Streaming Roulette,July: Reese doesn't live under the silver lake anymore

As is our practice we've selected 8-10 titles and frozen the films at utterly random moments without cheating (whatever comes up comes up!).It's our way of previewing new titles streaming in the first half ofJULY2019.(★ means we recommend catching them.) Please do let us know if you're dying to discuss any of the films and maybe we'll write about them.

Ready?Let's go...

Why did I get stuck with the janky old broke hobo Spider-Man?

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse(2018) on Netflix ★
Watched this again on a whim with a friend who was curious because it won the Oscar.He's not into animated movies or superhero movies and he totally enjoyed it.Thus are its many inventive delights.It really holds up to viewing number two.Jam-packed with details you can easily miss on the first round.

Watch at Home: Into the Poppins-Verse and Triple Shoplifting Frontiers

Here's what's new for home viewing this past week or so.

New Blu-Rays/DVDS
Mary Poppins ReturnsWe here at TFE,despite being a musicals-inclined site,gave this one really short shrift this past season.It was not intentional but it was just that dang Christmas release date when everything is happening all at once.If you'd still like to discuss it let us know in the comments and perhaps we'll do a belated write-up
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verseso fun...though we worry it'll spur a million sequels which will,by the very nature of the novelty of this one,be inferior.

More DVDs and new to streaming titles after the jump...

Spirit Airlinesare decorating their planes to "soar"withDumbo.That seems like a costly promotion,there!
Slantranks all the Marvel films.I found this interesting because it's a) insane and b) the people they've assigned to write up the movies dont necessarily agree with their ranking in the list so it's weirdly schizophrenic
