I Don't Feel at Home in This World Anymore HD720p 11MB
Darkly comedic thriller that tells the story of Ruth (Melanie Lynskey), a nursing assistant suffering through a crisis of existential despair.

Accompanied by her obnoxious martial-arts-enthusiast neighbor (Elijah Wood), they soon find themselves dangerously out of their depth against a pack of degenerate criminals. Directorial debut of actor Macon Blair.
Won the Grand Jury Price last month in Sundance. Netflix bought the rights. It will start streaming February 24th.
Beauty and the Beast HD720p 91MB HD1080p 171MB
The (allegedly) final trailer for the live-action re-telling of Disney's animated classic which refashions the classic characters from the tale as old as time for a contemporary audience, staying true to the original music while updating the score with several new songs. Emma Watson and Dan Stevens will star as Belle and the Beast/Prince respectively, and Luke Evans will play the role of Gaston. Emma Thompson has joined the cast as Mrs. Potts and Kevin Kline as Belle's father, Maurice. Josh Gad, Ewan McGregor, Stanley Tucci, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Audra McDonald, Ian McKellen and Sonoya Mizuno are also part of the cast. Directed by Bill Condon (Dreamgirls, Kinsey, Mr. Holmes).
The Lost City of Z HD720p 24MB
European trailer for this adventure drama that tells the true story of British explorer Percy Fawcett (Charlie Hunnam), who journeys into the Amazon at the dawn of the 20th century and discovers evidence of a previously unknown, advanced civilization that may have once inhabited the region. Despite being ridiculed by the scientific establishment who regard indigenous populations as “savages,” the determined Fawcett – supported by his devoted wife (Sienna Miller), son (Tom Holland) and aide de camp (Robert Pattinson) – returns time and again to his beloved jungle in an attempt to prove his case. Directed by James Gray (We Own the Night, Two Lovers The Immigrant).
An earlier US teaser: HD720p 42MB.
Edit: Full US trailer: HD720p 91MB.
Catfight HD720p 89MB
Dark comedy about two bitter rivals whose grudge match spans a lifetime. Wealthy wine lover Veronica Salt (Sandra Oh) and struggling outsider artist Ashley Chambers (Anne Heche) were close in college, but haven’t seen each other since. When they find themselves attending the same glitzy birthday party, verbal barbs lead to fisticuffs and an all-out brawl that will keep these two locked in combat for years to come. Alicia Silverstone, Tituss Burgess and Dylan Baker are also part of the cast.
Looks very pleasantly silly, and is surely aptly titled.
Oklahoma City HD720p 114MB
Documentary about the Oklahoma City bombing in 1995 that rocked the nation as the most deadly act of domestic terrorism in U.S. history. 168 people were killed and 675 were injured in the blast. Timothy McVeigh was a soldier, patriot, and war veteran. It traces the events - including the deadly encounters between American citizens and law enforcement at Ruby Ridge and Waco - that led McVeigh to commit this terrorist attack. With a virulent strain of anti-government anger still with us, the film is both a cautionary tale and an extremely timely warning.
Doc will have a very limited US theatrical release and will be shown on PBS February 7th.
The Lego Batman Movie HD720p 145MB
Four minutes Behind The Bricks featurette in which the characters talk about the movie.
I highly recommend the book for The Lost City of Z. Charlie Hunnam doesn't seem old enough to be playing Percy Fawcett, though. He was 57 when he disappeared and the son that was with him was 22. He was 39 on his first expedition to South America. Seems like an odd choice?
Interesting! I would assume that making him (look) younger is a Hollywood decision to make him more appealing to viewers. Though the director is closer to "arthouse" than mainstream Hollywood.
The movie already screened at a number of festivals and has gotten mostly good reviews. But since you are familiar with Fawcett's story, you may watch it with different eyes.
I'm sure that's why. But I'm curious to see more! I do recommend the book. :-)
Also, I owe you an email, I'm just really behind right now! :-)
While I would be delighted to continue the conversation, "owing" is too strong a word. Only when you find the time and are in the mood to reply. :)
