Love Actually Sucks, Actually, and You All Know It

"Solid gold sh*t!" - Love Actually describing Love Actually I know many of you are probably seething just reading the headline. But the fact is you're here now. Something deep inside of you knows I'm right. Let's get a few things out of the way: I'm a devout Christmas enthusiast. I openly celebrate the reason for the season, I'm known to sport inappropriate Christmas sweaters (at Disneyland, no less), I start my Christmas music listening extravaganza in late October, and I'm a mulled wine fanatic. You need to know that I do have merriment in my heart; I'm not some Grinch who hates the holiday spirit. Furthermore, I am obsessed with British people and will forever feel inadequate for not having an adorably chic English accent. But Love Actually is a flaming turd among sparkly baubles within the holiday film genre. These yuletide films tend to have a specific formula,

Mike Flanagan’s Before I Wake Coming to Netflix in the Us on January 5th

Horror fans have been looking forward to seeing Mike Flanagan's Before I Wake since the film was teased in trailers back in 2015, but bankruptcy issues at Relativity Media delayed and ultimately brought the movie's release to a halt. Since that time, Flanagan directed two well-received films for Netflix, and the streaming service has now revealed that they will bring Before I Wake out of film purgatory and into the warm glow of the TV screen.

Netflix revealed the exciting Before I Wake news in their full announcement of titles being added to their streaming lineup in January of 2018. Starring Jacob Tremblay, Thomas Jane, and Kate Bosworth, Before I Wake will be available to watch on the streaming service beginning Friday, January 5th, marking its first official release in the Us (it was previously released internationally, including in the UK by Netflix).

Other titles being added to Netflix (in the Us) include 30 Days of Night,

Critics Reveal Their Favorite Holiday TV Traditions — IndieWire Survey

Critics Reveal Their Favorite Holiday TV Traditions — IndieWire Survey
Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Tuesday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best show currently on TV?” can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: What are your winter holiday season viewing habits (that are not for work)? Do you have traditional go-to shows or movies? Are you looking forward to anything in particular?

Eric Deggans (@deggans), NPR

As I have written in the past, I’m not the kind of critic who loves holiday specials. Too often, they’re too hokey, too commercial, too weird (yes, Bill Murray, I still don’t get “A Very Murray Christmas”) or, in the case of countless Hallmark Channel movies, way too white. But I do have a few holiday media traditions, starting with my Spotify Holiday Tunes playlist, which gets fired up as

NYC Weekend Watch: Michelangelo Antonioni, Roman Hollywood, Studio Ghibli and More

Since any New York City cinephile has a nearly suffocating wealth of theatrical options, we figured it’d be best to compile some of the more worthwhile repertory showings into one handy list. Displayed below are a few of the city’s most reliable theaters and links to screenings of their weekend offerings — films you’re not likely to see in a theater again anytime soon, and many of which are, also, on 35mm. If you have a chance to attend any of these, we’re of the mind that it’s time extremely well-spent.

Museum of Modern Art

An all-inclusive Michelangelo Antonioni retrospective has kicked off.

Metrograph

“Goth(ic)” continues with an all-timer of a weekend.

The Umbrellas of Cherbourg screens on Friday.

Film Society of Lincoln Center

“The Non-Actor” has its final weekend.

Museum of the Moving Image

Rialto retrospective continues with the likes of Hiroshima, mon amour and Rififi.

'90s Movies That Will Bring Back the Magic of Your Childhood Holidays

Almost immediately after Thanksgiving is over, people start getting into the Christmas spirit. Mariah Carey's "All I Want For Christmas" rotates on every radio station. Cars pass down the street with Christmas trees strapped to their roofs. Department stores have elaborately beautiful decorations all throughout the store. But no Christmas season would be complete without a few holiday movies. Before Elf and Love Actually dominated our screens, there were a whole slew of amazing Christmas classics - they just came out in the '90s. Related17 Holiday Favorites You Can Stream on Netflix

Christmas on the big screen: festive film treats across the UK

Watch It’s a Wonderful Life in a cathedral, Elf in a pop-up market grotto, or Gremlins with Zach Galligan

Hidden at the end of an ice tunnel near London’s Borough market is this aptly wintry cinema, offering cocktails and seasonal screenings. All the festive mainstays – Elf, The Santa Clause, Love Actually – are accounted for, along with some unseasonal outliers – GoldenEye, anyone?

Until 28 January, Mercato Metropolitano, Borough, London.

According to Google, This Is the Most Popular Christmas Movie

Image Source: Everett Collection When it comes to declaring the best Christmas movie, some people are likely to have a tough time narrowing it down. After all, few movies are as beloved as the ones you grew up watching while huddled on the couch drinking hot cocoa with your family over the holidays. How can you possibly pick just one? Well, Google has apparently done it for us. Based on search-interest data over the last five years put together by the team at Treetopia, the most popular Christmas movie is . . . A Christmas Story! Now, before all of you Home Alone and Love Actually fanatics hunt me down with pitchforks and sharpened candy canes, this data doesn't necessarily mean it's the be-all, end-all best. It just means A Christmas Story - which actually performed worse at the box office than most of the other films on the list - is the

Watching Godless on Netflix? Of Course You Recognize Whitey Winn

  • BuzzSugar
Image Source: Netflix If you like Westerns, Netflix's new drama Godless is right up your alley. As you watch the gunslingers work to bring down the gang of outlaws terrorizing various townsfolk, one particular lawman might have caught your eye. The reason he looks so familiar? Because he previously starred on one of the biggest shows on TV. On Godless, we first meet Sheriff's Deputy Whitey Winn while he practices drawing his six-shooters in the mirror, pumping himself up with lines like, "You know why they call me Whitey Winn? 'Cause I always do." But the kid has some serious gun skills, which he puts on fine display one night when a pair of would-be troublemakers start shooting their mouths and their guns off. It's no green sight, but it's still pretty impressive. Image Source: HBO Wait, green sight? That's right. The actor who plays Winn, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, is none

I Interviewed Mariah Carey and It Was Just as Extra as You'd Imagine

I Interviewed Mariah Carey and It Was Just as Extra as You'd Imagine
Getting the note that you'll be interviewing Mariah Carey results in two reactions: complete joy and utter terror. This is generally how I feel about interviews. I'm never nervous per se, unless I'm meeting someone of epic proportions. And Mariah Carey definitely falls under that category. She's the indisputable festive queen of Christmas, with the most beloved Christmas song of the last 30 years. It's infiltrated most of the population's holiday traditions, whether it's watching Christmas movies on Hallmark or partaking in an annual viewing of Love Actually. People who don't even celebrate Christmas can't help but sing the song. Given the typical Christmas song repertoire we had prior to "All I Want For Christmas is You" - which included hymnals, songs about reindeer with red noses, and a duet that includes a man practically begging a woman to stay over against her will - I'd venture to say it's the

Awkward romance for beginners: what will a school run by the makers of Love Actually teach?

Working Title, the film company behind Four Weddings and Bridget Jones, plans to open a school in London. Just imagine what could be on the Curtis-icculum

The films of Working Title offer an uncannily accurate depiction of exactly how life in the UK isn’t. Love Actually, Four Weddings, Bridget Jones, Notting Hill – all charming little pantomimes of townhouses in leafy Zone 1 streets, plummy accents, inexplicable affluence and dithery and apologetic lovemaking. No one in London has ever lived like this, partly because no one knows how to. This makes news that Working Title plans to open a school for 16- to 19-year-olds in 2019, training a diverse new generation of filmmakers, quite intriguing. Could it also teach us how to achieve a life as seen in Working Title’s films? Could you finally lead an existence Richard Curtis himself would be proud of? The answer, dear reader, is an emphatic “perhaps.

Richard Curtis, who wrote the original film, is also an Ep of the prospective Hulu series,

A Bad Moms Christmas review

Meet the comedy sequel with more montages than Rocky IV: it's A Bad Moms Christmas...

If you didn’t know going into seeing A Bad Moms Christmas that this was a sequel scrambled together in double-quick time, you could soon figure it out. It’s a hodgepodge of half-formed characters, erratic narrative pace, and parts of story that just about smash together to make something okay. That it does so is no small achievement, but it’s worth stating from the off that the comedy heights of last year’s Bad Moms are rarely troubled.

The idea this time is that the Bad MomsMila Kunis, Kristen Bell and Kathryn Hahn – each have their own Bad Moms to put up with. Respectively, they get Christine Baranski, Cheryl Hines and Susan Sarandon. Baranski gets to play the overbearing, everything has to be perfect one. Hines is the clingy, living her life through her daughter mother.
