While Apple is currently negotiating with the major studios to deliver their content in a yet-to-be-determined premium VOD window, Netflix is staying ahead of the competition by producing their own original content.

Amid all the moreish dramas, single-cam comedies, limited event miniseries and true-crime investigations that define our era of Too-Much-TV™, the Netflix documentary “Five Came Back,” about five classic Hollywood film directors and their experiences of filming for the War Department during World War II, is an unexpectedly refreshing change of pace.

For years, Paramount Pictures has been trying to figure out their way into a movie about gangbuster Elliot Ness.

“Jason Bourne” is back, and there’s no question that it’s a big hit.

About 28 years ago, the face of modern cinema remained resolutely unchanged by the release of “Mystic Pizza.” But as well as showcasing Julia Roberts’ megawatt smile, the pizza-parlor-based romantic dramedy additionally featured Matt Damon‘s first role, and so it deserves some sort of blue plaque erected in that Connecticut town. Spin forward nearly three decades, […]

Accelerating forward with supercharged determination, “Jason Bourne,” the fifth installment of the spy action thriller series, might be a muscular and visceral chapter in the ‘Bourne’ saga, but it’s also a familiar collision.
