More Streaming Options

If you're bored with your new choices on Netflix, thought we'd give a shout out to a few options for only 99¢ on iTunes at the moment. Stronger, with Jake Gyllenhaal (who won our Bronze for Best Actor for last season) is their movie of the week. But in their often changing "Movies You Might Have Missed" section, also 99¢, they're currently offering five Pedro Almodóvar movies (Volver, Women on the Verge, All About My Mother, I'm So Excited, and Kika), Meryl Streep in She-Devil (which the Month of Meryl column hits next Thursday), the Glenn Close classic Fatal Attraction, David Fincher's Se7en, and, um, a Chinese remake of the unimprovable 90s romcom My Best Friend's Wedding... but at least it stars Shu Qi so it *might* be worth 99¢

And still more streaming options if you're not in the mood for Dwayne Johnson's Rampage this weekend or you've already see the delightful / problematic / futureOscarnominee Isle of Dogs. Amazon Prime has added a 55 wide movie collection called Movies From OutFest which is LGBTQ titles from film festivals over the last several years including a movie I've had friends rave about (52 Tuesdays) but which I've managed to not see up til now and the new musical Hello Again with a cast stacked with NYC stage greats like Martha Plimpton, Audra McDonald, and Cheyenne Jackson which I haven't seen so I'll be queueing that right up.

Just a heads'up - you never added 'Stronger' to your 2017 graded list, Nathaniel!

Personally, I'm going to rewatch all of the Lord of the Rings extended editions. Wish me luck.

Thanks so much for the OutFest tip.
though i have to strongly disagree with your friends about 52 Tuesdays. I was really looking forward to that one when I saw it on MUBI last year but found it quite tedious. yawn.

These are great ideas if you live in Minnesota and are dealing with a BLIZZARD in the middle of freaking April. Bitter, party of one.

I loved 52 Tuesdays. A deserving Sundance winner. People got all about Boyhood, but this was also right there.

Thanks so very much for this great post. I have difficulty finding where to find movies. Also appreciate a great deal like the $.99 rentals and OutFest tips. Headed over to Amazon Prime now... See ya!

God bless iTunes. They actually store and rent classic movies. With video stores wiped out, iTunes is such a necessary resource.

Ah, Volver: My favorite Penelope Cruz performance. She has my vote for Oscar that year. (The rest of the cast and movie is great, too.)
