The Public, Hellboy, The Highwaymen, Her Smell, Hail Satan?

The Public     HD720p 96MB
Crowd-pleasing comedic drama written and directed by Emilio Estevez (Bobby, The Way). What begins as an act of civil disobedience becomes a stand-off with police and library officials when a conscientious librarian (Estevez) turns the Cincinnati Public Library into an impromptu homeless shelter for one night during the most brutal cold snap in recent Cincinnati history. Michael Kenneth Williams, Alex Baldwin, Gabrielle Union, Taylor Schilling, Jena Malone, Christian Slater and Jeffrey Wright are also part of the cast.

Hellboy     HD720p 34MB
Redband trailer for the "reboot" of Hellboy (David Harbour), who is caught between the worlds of the supernatural and human, and who battles an ancient sorceress (Milla Jovovich) bent on revenge. Ian McShane, Sasha Lane, Daniel Dae Kim, Thomas Haden Church and Sophie Okonedo are also part of the cast. Directed by Neil Marshall (Centurion, Doomsday, The Descent).
Like that trailer better than their first effort. But I find the use of that version of "Smoke on the Water" a bit irritating.

The Highwaymen     HD720p 11MB
Crime drama with comedic elements that follows the untold true story of the legendary lawmen who brought down Bonnie and Clyde. When the full force of the FBI and the latest forensic technology aren’t enough to capture the nation’s most notorious criminals, two former Texas Rangers (Kevin Costner, Woody Harrelson) must rely on their gut instincts and old school skills to get the job done. Kathy Bates, John Carroll Lynch, and Kim Dickens are also part of the cast. Directed by John Lee Hancock (The Blind Side, The Alamo, The Founder).
Will start streaming on Netflix March 29th.

Her Smell     HD720p 58MB
Music drama about a self-destructive punk rocker. Becky Something (Elisabeth Moss) is a '90s rock superstar who once filled arenas with her band Something She. When her excesses derail a national tour, she's forced to reckon with her past while recapturing the inspiration that led her band to success. Cara Delevingne, Dan Stevens, Amber Heard, Gayle Rankin, Agyness Deyn, Ashley Benson and Eric Stoltz are also part of the cast. Written and directed by Alex Ross Perry (Queen of Earth, Listen Up Philip, Golden Exits).
Moss gives a very memorable performance. But festival reviews also indicate that it's not easy to take for 2+ hours.

Hail Satan?     HD720p 92MB
Documentary that chronicles the rise of one of the most colorful and controversial religious movements in American history. When media-savvy members of the Satanic Temple organize a series of public actions designed to advocate for religious freedom and challenge corrupt authority, they prove that with little more than a clever idea, a mischievous sense of humor, and a few rebellious friends, you can speak truth to power in some truly profound ways.
Looks very timely, informative and entertaining.
