The 5 Best Movies to Buy or Stream This Week: ‘A Star is Born,’ ‘Behind the Curve’

That increasingly rare creature — the worldwide blockbuster that also nets great reviews and awards recognition — hits disc and VOD this week, alongside a trio of wildly different (but equally invigorating) catalogue titles.

Don Cheadle Hosts SNL: Watch Video of the Best & Worst Sketches

It’s hard to believe that Don Cheadle hadn’t hosted Saturday Night Live before this weekend’s show. The Black Monday star (and winner of the Avengers’ SNL raffle) proved himself an absolutely terrific choice of emcee, scoring laughs as an inappropriate educator, an amateur baker and a pesky houseguest. Cheadle was the rare host able to elevate even […]

(To be fair, though, that could also be due […]

The 7 Best Movies to Buy or Stream This Week: ‘Velvet Buzzsaw,’ ‘Widows’

The Best and Worst Movies of the 2019 Sundance Film Festival
