Films to watch this Fall

We are now officially straddling summer rom-com and winter awards seasons. While horror flicks are obvious choices to indulge in for the next month or so, it would be unfortunate to neglect all other autumnally apt films. Here are eight to watch (or, most likely, re-watch) this season. “When Harry Met Sally” This acerbic Nora Ephron rom-com is brimming with heart and cozy-looking turtlenecks, and is best when enjoyed from late September to early January. It’s not spooky, nor entirely set in autumn, but the film does feature a brief stroll down a leaf-strewn Central Park sidewalk that became...

What to watch this weekend–Sept. 29

Here’s what to watch, stream and procrastinate with this weekend. “Flatliners” (in theaters Sept. 29) “Flatliners” follows a group of medical students as they, essentially, bring one another to the brink of death then quickly revive them, so they can each explore the (potential) afterlife. “You haven’t lived until you’ve died,” the poster reads (or, maybe, until you’ve seen “Flatliners”). “First They Killed My Father” (Netflix) Angelina Jolie’s latest directorial effort, based on Loung Ung’s devastating memoir about her escape from the Khmer Rouge in Cambodia, has already been on Netflix for a couple weeks. But if you haven’t...

What to watch this weekend–Sept. 22

Here’s what to watch, stream and procrastinate with this weekend. “Battle of the Sexes” (in theaters Sept. 22) One of 2011’s “Crazy, Stupid, Love’s” (very few) flaws is how few scenes Emma Stone and Steve Carell share in the film. This is remedied with “Battle of the Sexes,” a comedic take on the titular 1973 tennis match between Billie Jean King (Stone) and Bobby Riggs (Carell) that documents not only the match itself, but the . Early reviews have been generally positive, and King recently told USA Today the film is “99%” accurate. “Kingsman: the Golden Circle” (in theaters...

Sean Spicer distracts, while “Handmaid’s Tale” and “SNL” win big at politically charged Emmys

If you tuned into the Emmys last night to escape the political hellscape currently dominating social media and the news, tough luck. The most talked-about moment at the 69th Primetime Emmy Awards wasn’t Donald Glover’s or “The Handmaid’s Tale’s” historical wins but Sean Spicer, who made a surprise appearance during host Stephen Colbert’s monologue. The former press secretary scooted onstage behind a podium similar to the one Melissa McCarthy used to parody him on “Saturday Night Live,” and cracked a joke about the award show’s crowd size. He later told The Hollywood Reporter that he thought the Emmys stunt...

What to watch this weekend

Here’s what’s worth watching, streaming and procrastinating with this weekend. “The Deuce” (HBO, Sept. 10) HBO nixed its last 1970s-set series, “Vinyl,” after just one season. But “The Deuce,” starring a delightfully slimy James Franco and a blonde-permed Maggie Gyllenhaal, will explore a very different aspect of the decade — porn. It’s been widely praised so far and was crafted by HBO veteran David Simon (“The Wire,” “Treme”); this isn’t a definitive gauge on the show’s quality (“Vinyl” was brought to you by Martin Scorsese), but we could all use some sepia-toned escapism this weekend. “It” (in theaters Sept. 8)...
