MUBI brings fringe films to the PS3
If you’re a PS3 owner and enjoy your independent films, then MUBI should be of great interest.
It’s a movie streaming service with a difference – bringing the best of independent and world cinema direct to your console, as well as some Hollywood classics.
MUBI says that it’s about quality over quantity, and in the company’s words, it will bring “undistributed festival gems ripe for your discovery, [as well as] your favourite recent independent and art-house releases.”
“Names like the Coen brothers, Godard, Kitano, Almodóvar, Tarantino, and Van Sant are some we’ll bring home to you.”
As well as Kubrick, David Lynch and other weird and wonderful masterpieces. It’s definitely a refreshing idea, and possibly the only way you’ll get to view some of these films in the high quality streams MUBI claims it delivers.
MUBI also promises exclusive online premieres, and collaborations with international film festivals.
On top of that, it emphasises a community spirit, with a social networking aspect which gives users a chance to get together and discuss issues such as exactly what those frogs in Magnolia meant.
It all sounds pretty cool, although the downside is the charge for movies is reportedly £3 a pop, a tad rich perhaps.
The exact date for MUBI’s arrival on the PS3 isn’t specified, although the company says it will be soon.
Incidentally, about the raining frogs in Magnolia, we can definitively solve that conundrum. It was all caused by a coffee spill on the script, which blotted out the words “cats and”, also smearing the “d” of “dogs” to make it look like an “fr”.
