TULIP FEVER on NETFLIX

It’s an Alicia Vikander weekend. Firstly, she’s got her big budget, video game adaptation hitting theaters. Taking the reigns from Angelina Jolie, Vikander stars as a young version of Lara Croft in this weekend’s “Tomb Raider,” with Dominic West and Walter Goggins also starring. A film that didn’t make many waves when it was released in theaters, however, was her film “Tulip Fever,” in which she starred alongside Dane DeHaan, Christoph Waltz, Jack O’Connell, Zach Galifianakis, Judi Dench, Holliday Grainger, and DeHaan’s “Valerian” co-star Cara Delevingne. Adapted from a novel, the film takes place in the Netherlands in the 17th century, where Vikander plays a young bride to Waltz’s character. However, she soon falls for a young painter, played by DeHaan, to whom she has a not-so-secret affair in which they plan to run off and start a business in tulips. With an ensemble cast and three Academy Award winners (Vikander, Waltz, and Dench), despite the middling reviews, this film still feels like a must watch.

If the pairing of Vikander and Waltz isn’t bad enough, then catch the new dating app thriller “Bad Match!” which sees an internet-dating playboy get his comeuppance when he meets a clingy girl hiding something sinister. Coming off his recent Academy Award nomination for his role in “Roman J. Israel Esq.” check out of one Denzel Washington’s lesser seen roles in “John Q.” where he plays the father of a dying child who holds a hospital emergency room hostage in order to get his son the help he needs. In “November Criminals,” a pair of high school kids set out to solve the death of a fellow student. Chloe Grace Moretz offers what looks to be a great supporting role while Ansel Elgort comes off his “Baby Driver” fame with a middle-of-the-road drama. Kevin Costner takes his decades of sports movie experience and turns it into the next “Any Given Sunday” or “Moneyball,” where he plays the general manager of an NFL team who is drawing near to draft day. Directed by Ivan Reitman and co-starring Jennifer Garner and Black Panther himself, Chadwick Boseman, the film actually ends up being quite entertaining.

With Stephen Hawking passing away this week, it’s only fitting that “The Theory Of Everything,” the film portraying his early life and then after the diagnosis of his ALS starring Academy Award winner Eddie Redmayne, who won for the role and Academy Award nominee Felicity Jones. Fellow Oscar winner Rachel Weisz (“The Constant Gardener”) stars in “My Cousin Rachel,” a period piece that sees a man vowing revenge against his late cousin’s widow (Weisz) only to be seduced by her. Another Oscar nominee, Bryan Cranston (“Trumbo”), finds himself in a strange drama titled “Wakefield,” where he plays a man that abandons his family to live in their attic, unseen and only coming out when the family is gone. And after winning an Academy Award for directing “Argo,” Ben Affleck follows up with directing “Live By Night” in which he also stars, alongside Zoe Saldana, as a up-and-coming gangster during the Prohibition era. And lastly, a film I hope they never remake: “The Addams Family.”
