FilmWeek: Our Reviews Of 'Trolls World Tour,' 'The Quarry' And More Movies You Can Stream From Home
Every week, Larry Mantle, who also hosts our newroom's longtime public affairs show AirTalk, and KPCC film critics spend an hour talking about new films.
Of course, a lot has changed with the stay-at-home orders. As Larry says:
"Adapting, as so many of us are, to dramatic changes in our lives with no films in movie theaters, FilmWeek is devoted to what you can see at home, whether they're brand new releases on video on demand, streaming sites or cable channels, as well as the vintage movies and television."
"Trolls World Tour"
- Available on VOD (Vudu, FandangoNOW, AppleTV, Amazon Prime Video , Microsoft Store & more)
"This film feels like you're sticking your head in a bucket full of glitter while somebody bangs on it with a pipe wrench. Everything is pitched way over the top. Day Glo colors, more glitter than the entire Hobby Lobby chain uses a year."
- Available on VOD (FandangoNOW, Google Play, DirecTV On Demand)
"I thought The Quarry was a pretty good thriller. I mean, yeah, it's kind of souped up, a sort of quasi noir, quasi Coen brothers, quasi, you know, a few different genres put together, but it kind of had me going."
"A White, White Day"
- Available on The Frida Virtual Cinema
"I can't echo Amy's obsession, but I will agree that there is something really interesting to the film and that the filmmaker has a distinct talent. This was Iceland's official Oscar submission for the international film category, and it's true that opening shot is absolutely remarkable."
"Selah And The Spades" on Amazon Prime Video
"Endings, Beginnings" on VOD (iTunes and FandangoNOW)
"Sergio" on Netflix
