Nickelodeon cashes in with Netflix

Nickelodeon cashes in with Netflix

With the launch of Disney+ yesterday , the modern streaming wars have now well and truly begun. (Or whatever Yoda-esque mangling of syntax you happen to prefer.) Although HBO and parent company WarnerMedia have yet to join the fray officially—with HBO Max set to arrive some time in the first half of 2020—all of the other major players have now staked out their territory, with Netflix as the...

The Witcher to witch again with an early second-season renewal at Netflix

The Witcher to witch again with an early second-season renewal at Netflix

Presumably operating on the theory that people really like watching handsome, silver-haired men relax in bath tubs after chopping monsters apart, Netflix announced today that it’s already granted a second season to its upcoming fantasy epic The Witcher , before the first season has even had a chance to debut. While it’s not entirely uncommon for a show to get this kind of vote of...

A severed hand crawls across Paris in the dynamic animated curiosity I Lost My Body

A severed hand crawls across Paris in the dynamic animated curiosity I Lost My Body

Two very different narratives unfold simultaneously in the animated French drama I Lost My Body, which won the top prize in Critics’ Week (one of the parallel festivals at Cannes) earlier this year. One story is a sweet-natured yet stalker-ish romance about a painfully shy and awkward pizza delivery guy, Naoufel (voice of Hakim Faris, or Dev Patel if you choose the English-language...

Helena Bonham-Carter’s psychic put her in touch with Princess Margaret, apparently

Helena Bonham-Carter’s psychic put her in touch with Princess Margaret, apparently

The best part of the below clip is not Helena Bonham Carter just casually mentioning that a friend who is a psychic/healer connected her with the spirit of the late Princess Margaret, who Bonham Carter is playing in the third season of The Crown. The best part is HBC and Olivia Colman cracking each other up and being wonderful together. The second-best part is the psychic stuff. The...

Netflix cheerfully confirms it'll cave to any government that asks

Netflix cheerfully confirms it'll cave to any government that asks

In a universe where corporate entities—Lovecraftian subtext purely intentional, we assure—often expend large quantities of energy attempting to pretend like they have the morality or values of human beings, there’s something bizarrely refreshing about seeing a company just own up and admit that they’ll cave under the slightest pressure the second that anybody asks. Hence the weird cognitive...

It's a pontiff-palooza in this trailer for Netflix's The Two Popes

It's a pontiff-palooza in this trailer for Netflix's The Two Popes

There’s so much wackiness inherent to the title The Two Popes—Mitre switching! Vatican guard pranks! Burying allegations against disgraced priests together in St. Peter’s backyard!—that it’s actually a little disappointing to find out that Fernando Meirelles’ new Netflix movie of that name is mostly just about two guys talking to each other. Admittedly, the two senior citizens in...
