Netflix has been around long enough that its generational users interface very differently; some solely focused on streaming, while others continue physical media, and others still swear by five-star ratings. Now, Netflix has decided to overhaul its ratings system significantly, even adding a compatibility option.

By the sounds of it, War Party could be the title of a fun satire that parodies war movie cliches. Or it could be a black comedy where Tom Hardy plays the owner of a small party supplies store that suffers once the locals start buying their birthday and baby shower decorations on Amazon. But War Party, a new project purchased by Netflix for seven figures, is neither of those things – one can dream! – but a historical film about Navy SEALs.
Marvel’s ‘Iron Fist’ brings his glowing justice to New York as early as this Friday, introducing MCU takes on Colleen Wing, the Meachums and more along the way. We’ve already reviewed Marvel’s biggest misfire yet, but before your own binge, get answers to some of ‘Iron Fist’s most burning questions with our spoilery FAQ review of the first six episodes!
Joe Swanberg’s filmography is a fascinating evolutionary timeline; with each new film, the former mumblecore pioneer (and occasional agitator) has showcased increasing maturity. Win It All is his most grown-up film to date — despite the fact that it centers on the all-too-familiar man-child archetype. For his latest effort, Swanberg reunites with Digging for Fire star and co-writer Jake Johnson, who pulls double duty once again, this time with much more consistent results.
The personal nature of Aziz Ansari’s Master of None made it difficult to discern when Season 2 might shoot or premiere, but Dev is finally putting down the pasta, and scooting his way into our hearts. See for yourself, as the first Master of None Season 2 tease promises a May premiere.
1,083 reels of old film represent one of the great Holy Grails of movie history. They’re the unassembled components of The Other Side of the Wind, the final unfinished project of director Orson Welles. Shot over the course of many years in the 1970s, and starring a cast that included directors John Huston and Peter Bogdanovich, The Other Side of the Wind was a complex tale about an aging movie director attempting to mount a career comeback. (Surely the story had no personal resonance for Welles whatsoever.) Financial and legal troubles mounted, and Welles was unable to complete the film before he passed away in 1985. For decades, those 1,083 reels sat in a French film lab, waiting for the right team to come along and do something with them.
Dave Chappelle was looking mighty introspective in a first teaser for his three upcoming Netflix specials, so let’s get back to what he does best. A first official trailer for the March dual-release sees Chappelle tackling everything from O.J. to ISIS, and one of life’s biggest killers.
Controversy continues to swirl around Marvel’s Netflix Iron Fist, but even as cast and crew go on the defensive from bad reviews, many are intrigued to see the more fantastical elements of Danny Rand’s origin story in K’un L’un. Well, bad news on that front, as Iron Fist becomes the second series in which Finn Jones never gets to meet a dragon.
There wasn’t much of any doubt that Netflix’s Series of Unfortunate Events would return for a second season, given a wealth of Lemony Snicket books left to adapt, and largely positive reception for the Neil Patrick Harris-led production. That said, Netflix makes it doubly-official with a miserable new message from Lemony Snicket himself.
Superhero movie audiences have lived through enough high-profile bombs to recognize a common refrain, likening any bad reviews to critics misaligned with fan interests. We saw it with Batman v. Superman and Suicide Squad, and now Iron Fist star Finn Jones is giving “we made it for the fans” the old college try in response to negative press.
