"...Adding to the repertoire of both the incomparable David Lynch (he is an executive producer) and Netflix’s increasingly acclaimed documentary collection, this re-cut 2014 film by Lotje Sodderland and Sophie Robinson is nothing short of remarkable...."
"...There are some good reasons to get excited about self-driving cars. Like you could pass your road time on Netflix, safely text "OMW," or eat a Whataburger Honey Butter Chicken Biscuit without getting the steering wheel all sticky..."
"...That should change this summer, when the film will likely see a theatrical release in Brazil timed with the Olympics, as well as digital distribution via Netflix in Latin America. And who knows, maybe it will stir the Jules Rimet trophy out of hiding and return it to its rightful home..."
"...When he's not skateboarding, Netflix bingeing, or studying for pre-AP algebra, the 15-year-old high school sophomore keeps the beat for teen-pop duo Charlie Belle. His sister Jendayi, a 17-year-old high school senior, handles vocals, songwriting, and guitar for the act named after their great-grandmother..."
"...The Sheik (Dark Sky Films) is available on DVD, VOD, and Netflix now...."
"...Swanberg is the epitome of SXSW talent, from early works like Hannah Takes the Stairs to his star-studded breakout Drinking Buddies. As for George, his talk will concentrate on technology, flexibility, and adaptability in a creative career: the right topic for a man who has written musical histories (Where Did Our Love Go: The Rise and Fall of the Motown Sound and Hip Hop America), directed films for HBO (Life Support), and has written and produced Netflix's upcoming A Ballerina's Tale...."
"...3: Faults: One of the year's most astounding two-handers, Leland Orser and Mary Elizabeth Winstead got a theatrical release and is on home release and Netflix now (read our SXSW review here)...."
"...Two decades-plus had elapsed since his sophomore solo quake, Main Offender. As Netflix tie-in Keith Richards: Under the Influence informs to the guitar god himself, he's now outlived the bluesman whose song "Rollin' Stone" titled his UK combo – Muddy Waters...."
"...Worst Film Entourage. A blatant cash-grab that was universally viewed, correctly, as painfully ill-advised in this terrific Netflix/Amazon streaming moment...."
"...For Fans of: The cinematic artistry of AMC, the literary complexity of HBO, the dark humor and offbeat leads of Showtime and/or the formalistic experimentation of Netflix...."
"...This Christmas Eve, as Austinites gather 'round the electronic fireplace (Fireplace for Your Home, season 1, available on Netflix), we can be thankful, every one, that this is one Thursday evening when there is no City Council meeting. The disturbance of the peace that was last Thursday's meeting is covered amply elsewhere (see "Point Austin," "Leave No Fingerprints," and "Uber and Lyft Go to City Hall"), there is mercifully little public process going on over the next 10 days (see "Civics 101"), and next week is the Chronicle's annual Top 10s of the Year issue..."
"...And from the moment he launched into “The Way You’d Love Her” from 2015’s Another One, it was clear his instructions would be easy to follow. The 25-year-old Edmonton native would, despite any branding to the contrary, keep things at a level somewhere between “chill” and “Netflix and chill” for the packed house on Tuesday...."
"...The Twitch community resides in the latter category despite its exploding popularity. The streaming site pulls the fourth-largest amount of Internet traffic during peak hours – Netflix, Google, and Apple sit in the top three spots – and yet is barely known outside of gaming circles...."
"...Then there's America Is Still the Place, which recounts the 1971 San Francisco Bay oil spill – in which 800,000 gallons of crude were unleashed on the ocean after two oil tankers collided – through the eyes of Charlie Walker, whose efforts to clean up Stinson Bay are impeded by systemic racism and corruption. If that sounds a bit dry, let's just say that Mike Colter (cast as Luke Cage in the upcoming Marvel/Netflix TV series) oozes charisma, and the film leans more toward tall tale than clinical indictment...."
"...It's like my film Wishmaster. It's on Netflix and people watch it all the time, and they tell me, 'it doesn't look that good.' You watch it on a hi-def television, and it's old video, and it looks like VHS..."
"...I can't prove that it's related, but come on. I recovered, in part, by spending two straight days curled up on the couch with Netflix on the TV and Facebook in the palm of my hand...."
"...Patoski's Sir Doug & the Genuine Texas Cosmic Groove premiered in March at South by Southwest Film and recently landed distribution from music doc disseminates Submarine Entertainment, which will likely lead to a run on Netflix in the late fall. The movie traces the late Austinite's mind-blowing musical legacy from child prodigy sitting on Hank Williams' knee through his regional teen fame, unlikely British Invasion emergence, Summer of Love Americana instigation, and barrio-breaching Tex-Mex innovation...."
"...Like most Austinites, she has a hankering for Tex-Mex, and says that she often takes advantage of the margarita specials at El Mercado. An avid Netflix and Hulu junkie, she enjoys watching Steven Universe and asserts that, while a pill-popping dog may be considered "a steroid propaganda show," Underdog is still her favorite superhero...."
"...You are now entering Shondaland, the world that writer, director, show creator Shonda Rhimes made. She’s the first person in television history to have an entire night of her own: Grey’s Anatomy, How to Get Away with Murder, and Scandal, which also streams on Netflix..."
"...Platinum ego encases History of the Eagles, a three-hour rock doc (on Netflix and mailed to concert reviewers) that spawned a two-year tour. Founders and songwriting axis Don Henley and Glenn Frey wield their aural iconography like a tomahawk – screw up, get scalped..."
"...Until quite recently, unless your name was Ansel Adams, the concept of life outdoors was about as far from artsy or trendy as you could get. The great outdoors are authentic, true, real – romantic, sure, but in a private kind of romance way, like binge watching an entire series on Netflix with a loved one all weekend long or secretly flipping through attractive Facebook photos of yourself after one too many glasses of wine...."
"...Wild Card: Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp: David Wain has long joked about reuniting the cast of his hilarious cult classic for a prequel, and now the visible age differences should prove even funnier as he brings back Paul Rudd, Amy Poehler, Michael Ian Black, Elizabeth Banks, Ken Marino, Janeane Garofalo, and Bradley Cooper for this Netflix show. (July 17) Kimberley Jones..."
"...Aimee Mann, Loudon Wainwright III, Joe Henry, and I went to Louisville for about 10 days and made a movie. It’s out on DVD, Blu-ray, and all that stuff – Netflix, maybe? Video on demand? I dunno..."
"...Of course, roles depicting victimhood and subservience will be around as long as we enjoy watching stories about murder and the rising price of real estate – which I emphatically do. But the violence I'm talking about isn't a direct function of violence in the narrative; consider the smiling, childlike Vietnamese character on Tina Fey's otherwise brilliant Netflix series Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt..."

"...Davis previously co-wrote and edited the 2011 music doc Kevin, which Jay Duplass directed; both Duplass brothers are credited as executive producers on Manson Family Vacation; and they just sold Manson Family Vacation (in addition to fellow competition film 6 Years) to Netflix as part of their four-picture deal with the streaming giant. So it’s fitting this film feels like a Duplass project in all the best ways..."
"...Like what Netflix did for Arrested Development in 2013, Yahoo Screen has pumped new life into Community by giving it a platform for the sixth season that NBC turned its back on...."
"...Each kit is unique (though all equally valued) and designed with staying home in mind. The kits feature gourmet surprises from a plentiful array of vendors and can be shared or squirreled away for Netflix night..."
"...Better yet, the two actresses also appeared in my two favorite small-screen experiences of the year: Hoffmann in Amazon’s transcendent Transparent and Gyllenhaal in The Honourable Woman, a joint BBC/SundanceTV production that started out a pleasurably twisty thriller and turned into something utterly gutting. (It’s streaming on Netflix now.) [image-2]..."

"...For those of us who have been unable to stop streaming Gilmore Girls on Netflix, it's like our wildest dreams have come true. The ATX Television Fest announced today that Amy Sherman Palladino (the show's creator), Lauren Graham, and Alexis Bledel will reunite to celebrate the joys of Stars Hollow...."
"...Where artists like him once depended on a Tinseltown studio to realize their animation, now a Kickstarter campaign can fund a series of shorts on a sumo bull or talking horse (for example) and sell it independently to content monsters screaming for more streaming. Say Netflix or Google...."
"...A Strange Object has brought us another fine diversion from our plummet to the grave, a diversion that we'll continue happily snacking on between the features of our Netflix queue...."
"...More than a little, truth be told. Galaxy Quest flashed by on the Netflix screen, a light but surprisingly satisfying Nineties comedy with hilarious performances by Enrico Colantoni and Alan Rickman..."
"...He does it right then and there." Erazo and Jackson shared the concept with other students, and the idea emerged for GITNB – a group reflecting the whimsy of the Dumpster Project ("fun, witty, yet productive," as Erazo puts it) and the unique perspectives of its members. The Netflix series Orange Is the New Black was popular at the time, and Victoria's Secret was doing a "Pink Is the New Black" campaign, recalls Erazo: "We were like, you know what? Green is the new black."..."
"...Scanning the 90-something releases since 2007, you'll find music from disparate locals like Love Inks, Tim Kerr, and Survive, not to mention amazing internationals like Trans Upper Egypt and XYX, plus paperbacks like Thor Harris' devastatingly honest depression chronicles An Ocean of Despair, and film releases including the Sundance-approved Computer Chess, streaming now on Netflix. Roughly 20% of Monofonus' mail orders come from overseas, where they've folded in acts from England, France, Italy, and wherever the Rebel is from..."
"...Fortunately, some of the more blood-curdling aspects of Herbert's book survive, even though scripter Charles "Chic" Eglee proudly announces in the extras that he never even read the original novel. (Incidentally, he took the same approach when he took over as showrunner of Netflix's Hemlock Grove.)..."
"...The funny thing is, movie books like these should be dead. Between IMDB listicles and Netflix recommendations it's easy to get a guide to under-rated gore gems..."
"...I still like it.) Below is an excerpt from my program notes, devoted to the very special run of movies Mazursky made in the Seventies. One of them, An Unmarried Woman, is currently streaming on Netflix..."
"...Ever since The West Wing, behinds-the-scenes machinations have been a ratings grabber. However, the non-cable world has stolen the march on this, with House of Cards on Netflix, and Amazon getting legitimate praise for Beltway comedy Alpha House...."

"...Founded last year, El Rey currently reaches 40 million homes around the US, plus international audiences through a Netflix deal for its first original programming, the serial adaptation of vampire versus bank robber chiller From Dusk Till Dawn. Its key demographic is one that has historically been under-served by US studios and networks: Second and third generation Latinos who live in English-speaking households...."
"...Sunday: You may have missed it in all the Queerbombness, but season two of Orange Is the New Black was released in full on Friday. When it comes to show binge-ing, Netflix has a sadistic side...."
"...Other panels available only to badgeholders, like the Netflix-hosted "#SpoilerAlert" and the "Evolution of the TV Drama," discuss the changing landscape with industry insiders. The "An Assistant's Tale" panel, packed full of high-powered TV creatives who just happen to be women, promises to offer something of a stealth-feminist perspective on the industry from Liz Tigelaar, a writer and producer for Bates Motel and a regular at the festival, and Emily Halpern, co-creator of Trophy Wife..."
