Catch Up On Old Favorites On Netflix This September

9/1/2015 11:17am EDT
Netflix
As we head back to school, Netflix lightens up on its binge requirements, with only one new original series premiering: “Puffin Rock” is a Northern Irish animated import about avian sibling duo Oona and Baba exploring their titular island home. Netflix’s children’s programming does not get the same sort of buzz as a “Narcos” or a “Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp,” but there is nonetheless a steadily growing roster of shows for the kids.

The lack of originals is convenient, as it allows for catch-up of old favorites that will be returning in the fall. Serendipitously, September’s...

Andrew Garfield
Andrew Garfield was not the world’s most popular Spider-Man. But at least Garfield can admit that- and in a new interview with The Playlist, the actor (and former Peter Parker) delves into just why The Amazing Spider-Man and its sequel were such weak sauce.

The secret? Trying to appeal to everyone, rather than just buckle down and make a solid Spider-Man movie.

“The pressure to get it right, to please everyone… it's not going to happen...You end up pleasing no one, or everyone just a little bit,” Garfield explained, venting his frustrations. “Like, ‘Eh, that was good.’ [The films are] mas...

In Memoriam: The Five Best Wes Craven Films Of All Time

8/31/2015 10:50pm EDT
Wes Craven
The film world has lost one of its legends. Horror master Wes Craven died Sunday, August 30, 2015 after a battle with brain cancer.

To say his loss is massive is an understatement – nobody in horror history was more prolific, beloved and utterly creative than Craven. From Freddy Krueger to Ghostface, "The Hills Have Eyes" to "The Last House On The Left," Craven made great cinema.

And while a lot of his films went on to be remade to much lesser effectiveness, it was the cool of Craven that made a film he wrote and directed such an original experience.

So in loving memory of the man w...

"We Are Your Friends" centers on an aspiring DJ who falls in love with his mentor's girlfriend ...
