What's Streaming from 1985?

by Nathaniel R

Most streaming platforms don't have great search capabilities.As we've long complained,they're much better for casual viewers who'll watch whatever is curated for them than devoted cinephiles who often give themselves projects (I know I'm not the only one!) to watch a certain set of films of some ilk,year,awards race of yesteryear or from some filmography.Since 1985 is our "year of the month"-- the Smackdown is just one week away!(have you voted yet?) -- I thought we'd play our streaming screengrab roulette game (wherever the scroll bar lands we take that photo - no searching for cool images or key scenes) with film titles from 1985 that are streaming currently on one of the major services.These weren't super easy to look up but here's what I found on Hulu,Netflix,and Amazon Prime.

Will any of these random screengrabs inspire you to watch a movie?Please do speak out about anything related to any of these movies in the comments.It's more fun when you we're not just typing into the abyss.

Okay,ready here we go...

LifeRide Celebrities Are ♥️

While there are surely terrible things about being famous one of the things that is not terrible at all (unless you're just a negative person who can always find a dark cloud) is that fame gives you such massive platform to do good in the world.With a built in audience charitable appearances,fundraising ability,and fighting for pet causes are all so much easier!

Currently there are a bunch of celebrities doing the multi-cityKiehl's LifeRide for AmfAR,The Foundations for AIDS Research (which started August 3rd and runs through August 14th,ending in Philadelphia) including actors Jay Ellis (The Game),JR Bourne and Ian Bohen (Teen Wolf),Kurt Yaeger (new seriesQuarry),Scott Patterson (Gilmore Girls),and three...uh...longtime personal favorites of mine:  Gilles Marini (Sex & The City),Teddy Sears (Masters of Sex,The Flash,Dollhouse) and Michiel Huisman (Black Book,Wild,Game of Thrones).More photos after the jump...

Misc: Suffragette Colors,Cruise Stunts,Karl Shows,Jake Trains

Look,Suffragettefinally got a poster.[src]

Unfortunately it's fugly (not Carey.She pretty).Incidentally purple and green are my favorite colors but I never like them in combo unless I'm looking at The Joker.

Showtune to Go
I sawOn the Twentieth Centurya couple of weeks ago starring Kristin Chenoweth (one-of-a-kind amazing as usual) and you only have a few more days to see it (it closes on the 19th).The show was a little too manically staged for me but Chenoweth as a movie star and Andy Karl as her coattails riding actor boyfriend were both delicious and sensational and more than the sum of their parts.Unfortunately there's precious little quality video of Andy Karl online so here's a promo for his turn in "Rocky The Musical"in 2014 which seemed to prophesy the revival of that franchise -Creed coming at you soon.

For whatever reason Karl barely ever does TV or film (unlike a lot of other stage stars) so his profile is weirdly low with the general public considering he's funny,sexy,good-looking,traditionally masculine,talented and all  of that.I was enraged all over again watching his extremely funny work in "On the Twentieth Century"as a narcissistic actor that Christian Borlewon a generous second Tony for "Something Rotten"when his category was filled with so many better and truly inspired performances from Tony-less men (one of them even in his own show).The Emmys tendency to love the same people over and over again is much documented and groused about online,but the Tony habit of the same is even more mystifying since they're dealing with different shows and characters altogether each time.With the exception of a few people as default nominees,I'm deeply grateful that Oscar voters have somehow not inherited this usually* awful and stingy gene!

* there are people who have deserved multiple Tonys of course (Cheno,McDonald,Foster,Bernadette,etcetera).But...generally spread the wealth is a wiserandmore justified impulse.

Who You Gonna Call?

Oooh,look.It's the first image of your newGhostbustersin costume: Kristen Wiig,Leslie Jones,Melissa McCarthy and Kate McKinnon.IMDb has no information on who did the costumes yet but Paul Feig has never worked with the same costume designer on a movie twice for some reason so it could be anyone.

On a scale of 1 to 100 how excited are you to see this movie in 378 days when it opens?Frankly,I'd be a lot more excited about remakes of any kind if they gender-swapped like this.If you're not rethinking,why remake?

This is all a way of saying that even thoughmy review(icymi) was somewhat south of completely satisfied I did enjoy it and the positive reviews have left me wanting to see it again (since they liked many of the things I didn't) and the negatives have not convinced me to lower my solid grade (B).

"Nominations for Everyone!"- Saturn Awards

I maintain that a lot of "special interest"awards bodies would instantly be more respectable if they'd limit their number of nominations in a category.The Saturn Awards,who've been handing out prizes for sci-fi/fantasy/horror films for 40 years now,are one such group.When you narrow your field of eligibility -- as all special interest awards bodies must to still fit within their special interest boundaries -- why then should your nominee list belargerthan the standard model (that'd be attention).Despite what seems like a neverending barrage of pictures released that are catering to the comic-con community,there are actually less movies like that than those that are eligible for other prizes which only have "release date"as criteria.And yet the Saturn Awards feel the need to have six-seven nominees in all the acting categories and multiple Best Picture awards.If you combine all of their Best Film categories,they have 34 Best Picture nominees!though Gravity and The Hobbit: The Smaugening are the nomination leaders.

It must be so insulting for any picture that was not nominated...though I can't think of any that weren't offhand.Hundreds of nominations with brief grumpy commentary are after the jump.

Best Comic-to-Film Motion Picture:
"Iron Man 3″
"Man of Steel"
"Thor: The Dark World"
"The Wolverine"

The only snubbee I can think of here isBlue is the Warmest Colorbut those lesbians have no superpowers beyond very limber bodies and the ability to eat huge amounts of food without gaining a pound.
