Pop Culture Imports: ‘Snowpiercer,’ ‘Amélie,’ ‘Kaili Blues,’ and More

(Welcome to Pop Culture Imports, a column that compiles the best foreign movies and TV streaming right now.)

What is the "Disneyfication of Paris"?

The actual Disneyland Paris I've been pondering this question for the past few months and thought I'd put it to the Secrets of Paris community. "The Disneyfication of Paris" is a phrase that's thrown around a lot, especially after the French film Le Fabuleux Destin d'Amélie Poulain (aka Amélie) became one of the biggest hits of 2001 despite the angry critics who said the director showed a fairy-tale version of Paris, not the "real" city.  The topic has come up again when the director Jean-Pier...

Watch Six New Short Alien Films: Created to Celebrate the 40th Anniversary of Ridley Scott’s Film

Alien came out 40 years ago this month, not that its age shows in the least. The terror of the ever-diminishing crew of the Nostromo trapped on their ship with the merciless extraterrestrial monster of the title remains as visceral as it was in 1979, and the dank, pre-digital confines of its setting have taken on a retro patina that successive generations of filmmakers struggle to recreate for themselves. Now, in a series of brand new short films set in the Alien universe, yo...

(Not So) Famous Firsts: Alfonso Cuarón’s “Sólo con Tu Pareja”

It’s been five years since Alfonso Cuarón released Gravity and won the Best Director Oscar. But with the release of Roma he’s once again the front runner at the Oscars and has caused every single film critic to spill some ink over his winning streak. Yet Roma could not be a more different film than Gravity. It’s a black and white foreign language drama about a middle-class family in Mexico City. The only glimpse audiences get of Cuarón’s previous interests is the scene where the family goes to w...

Movie Mixtape: 6 Movies to Watch After You’ve Seen ‘Mary Poppins Returns’

It has taken Mary Poppins a really long time to return. Like, “avoiding the statute of limitations” long. She flew off into the clouds over a half century ago, and now she’s returned with a new look, some new music, and several impossible leaps forward in animation technology. Mary Poppins Returns also enters our lives after the semi-true Saving Mr. Banks gave us some insight into why author P.L. Travers resisted selling the rights to Walt Disney for so long, as well as her disappointment at th...

WTF Is Happening in This Crazy, Sweaty, Surreal Ad for Hornbach?

Tomorrow marks the start of spring. To celebrate it, German home improvement store Hornbach and its agency Heimat give us this mind-boggling piece of work. At first glance, it's a mishmash of chaos and screaming, like a nightmare fueled by spaghetti westerns, Jean-Pierre Jeunet movies and a bad day at work. "Sweat It Out" depicts...

‘The Shape of Water’ Is a Risky Fairy-Tale Romance That Almost Pays Off

The Shape of Water is ostensibly a love story between a solitary woman and a merman. But the true object of the movie's affection is its star character, Elisa Esposito (Sally Hawkins), and rightly so. Elisa is just about the fiercest woman on screen right now; a less complicated but no less determined heroine than Frances McDormand's blowtorch vigilante Mildred in Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri . A mute cleaning woman who lives above a grand old movie palace...

It’s a Bug Hunt: The 15 Best Moments From the ‘Alien’ Series

In space, no one can hear you scream. Or make lists ranking the best moments from the Alien film series. With Alien: Covenant hitting theaters this week, Jacob Hall and Jack Giroux revisited every movie featuring a xenomorph (yes, even the Alien vs. Predator movies) with one purpose: to watch for the scenes and beats and lines of dialogue that resonate the most. In this particular case, a “moment” is a malleable term. What stands out, really stands out, when we think back on these six movies? W...

Creative Watch: John Lewis Leads British Brands Rolling Out Holiday Ads

John Lewis is leading the pack of British holiday adverts with its annual seasonal message to make an anxious world feel more warm and fuzzy.

Can Wonder Woman Help Hillary Clinton Win the Presidency?

Gal Gadot in Wonder Woman, the movie, to be released in 2017, courtesy of Warner Bros. Pictures. Today, Friday, October 21, 2016, Wonder Woman turns 75. Or we should say, 75-going on-5,000, and that is on the young side of the guestimate. In reality, Princess Diana's origins are premised on a mytho-historical race of women warriors dating to at least 500 BCE, but much further into the Neolithic past than we today know. However, despite her ancient stature and age, Wonder Woman remains amon...

The 10 Best Romantic Comedies on Netflix

The 10 Best Romantic Comedies on Netflix In the last couple of decades, the romantic comedy has slowly morphed into one of the most maligned genres in all of filmdom, and there are plenty of movies that have helped earn that reputation for sappy, condescending rubbish. However, there are also BRILLIANT works that fall under the RomCom umbrella to feed the audience that wants to curl up with popcorn, a pint of ice cream and a good love story. Netflix actually has a very strong collection of am...

My top 10 feel-good movies

I’m going completely off-script in this post to talk about something unrelated to happiness at work but still close to my heart: Feel-good movies. I have a weakness for feel-good films and I’m not ashamed to admit it :) I love the fact that these movies show the world as a warm and happy place where good things happen to nice people, where everything eventually has a happy ending, where people can be themselves and are accepted for who they are and where second chances can be found by those who...
