Coming to Netflix in March: 'Jurassic Park' triology, 'Iron Fist,' 'The Craft' and more

Before Harry Potter, there was The Craft, now a goth cult classic from 1996.

Movie Stills Database

Before Harry Potter, there was The Craft, now a goth cult classic from 1996.

Holy, ‘90s hits, Disney movies and Netflix originals, Batman! March is beginning to look a lot like Christmas with its immense lineup of new shows and movies coming to Netflix in the next 31 days.

Jurassic Park, The Lost World: Jurassic Park, Jurassic Park III: Hold onto your butts, the two greatest movies about dinosaurs, and a third we don't like to talk about are coming to Netflix this month. I was really into dinosaurs as a kid, and I have the Jurassic Park movies to thank for that. They gave us extremely realistic (though not entirely scientifically accurate) portrayals of dinosaurs and of people seeing dinosaurs for the first time. I still tear up watching Dr. Ellie Sattler (Laura Dern) cry seeing her first triceratops. March 1

The Craft: Even the most loyal Harry Potter fans (at least the ones born in the ‘90s or before) will say The Craft is one of the greatest witchy movies of all time. The gothic cult classic was an ode to the high school experience that Hollywood largely ignored in the ‘90s. It channeled the black comedy of dark teen movies The Heathers and The Breakfast Club more so than Clueless or American Pie. March 1 …

Remembering Joseph Wapner and Bill Paxton

The cast of "Moonlight" accepts the Academy Award for Best Picture.

In what may go down as the most bizarre moment in Academy Awards history, La La Land was announced as the Best Picture winner at Sunday's ceremony in Los Angeles, which turned out to be a mistake. 

Halfway through the La La Land cast's acceptance speech, they stopped, and it was announced that the real winner was Moonlight.

"This is not a joke, 'Moonlight' has won best picture, " La La Land producer Jordan Horowitz said.

Jimmy Kimmel brought surprised tourists to the Oscars, and Denzel Washington 'married' them (w/video)

Was it the best Oscars stunt since that time Ellen Degeneres had pizza delivered and took the best selfie of all time?

Jimmy Kimmel "pranked" a tour group that was visiting Hollywood on Sunday by having their tour bus make an unscheduled stop at the Academy Awards ceremony. The tourists entered the theater where they were immediately brought to the front row, where they came face-to-face with the A-listers, including Denzel Washington, who even agreed to marry one couple. 

"He's Denzel, so it's official," Kimmel said.

Katherine Johnson, 98, was brought to the stage during the Oscars.

Perhaps the only person who could upstage the power trio of presenters Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer and Janelle Monae during the Oscars was Katherine Johnson, the real-life NASA mathematician who was portrayed by Henson in the film Hidden Figures

Tears were shed in the audience as the 98-year-old Johnson took the stage before O.J.: Made In America was awarded the Oscar for Best Documentary Feature.

Jimmy Kimmel hosts the 89th Academy Awards on Sunday.

Night with the stars: the 89th Academy Awards

La La Land may lead the pack with a record-tying 14 nominations, but Barry Jenkins' Moonlight and Denis Villeneuve's Arrival are close on the romantic musical's heels. Manchester by the Sea, Lion and Mel Gibson's Hacksaw Ridge come in third with six nominations each. Yes, that Mel Gibson. If you're not interested in watching the Academy Awards for the fashion or awarding of the most stellar movies of the year, at least tune in for the show-stopping speeches. You never know if Gibson will go nuts or that "overrated" Meryl Streep (who just nabbed her 20th nomination for Florence Foster Jenkins) will use the golden stage to make another powerful statement. Red carpet starts at 7 p.m. with Jimmy Kimmel hosting at 8:30 p.m. Sunday, ABC.

Winner and loser of the week: Rihanna named Harvard University's 2017 Humanitarian of the Year; Britney Spears Lifetime movie roasted

Winner: Rihanna.

Turning 29 this week meant also celebrating her astounding 30th top-10 hit on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Riri's Love on the Brain helped break her third-place tie with Michael Jackson, who had a total of 29 top-10 singles as a solo artist. Madonna still leads with 38, and The Beatles have 34.

If that doesn't make for a stellar week, Rihanna was also named Harvard University's 2017 Humanitarian of the Year on Wednesday. The award highlights Rihanna's work to improve cancer treatments in Barbados, and her college scholarship set up for Caribbean students to be able to study in the United States.

"She has also created the Clara and Lionel Foundation Scholarship Program for students attending college in the U.S. from Caribbean countries, and supports the Global Partnership for Education and Global Citizen Project, a multiyear campaign that will provide children with access to education in over 60 developing countries, giving priority to girls and those affected by lack of access to education in the world today," Harvard Foundation head Dr. S. Allen Counter said in a statement.

This guy that Rick killed on 'The Walking Dead' will totally watch 'The Walking Dead' with you in Tampa

Justin Kucsulain, left, definitely stabbed that guy to his right later on in this scene from "The Walking Dead."

Justin Kucsulain, left, definitely stabbed that guy to his right later on in this scene from "The Walking Dead."

At an Irish Pub in Tampa this Sunday, the small but slowly growing fraternity of Tampa Bay residents who have appeared on The Walking Dead will gather to watch the latest episode of the ultra-violent zombie series. 

You might not recognize them, or maybe you will, that all depends on how deep your fandom goes, but either way they will totally watch with you, and possibly even serve you a beer. 

There's Justin Kucsulain, who played Ethan from Hilltop, or maybe you know him better as that guy who (spoiler alert?) got killed by Rick that time. He'll be bartending during the Walking Dead watch party at the new Paddywagon Irish Pub in Citrus Park on Sunday (and also every Tuesday and Friday, if you'd want to come by and take a picture with him, he said). 

There's also Dahlia Legault, who has played Francine from Alexandria in eight episodes so far, and (spoiler alert??) has not been killed some gruesome way yet.

Then you've got Lance Tafelski, who played the "black bearded wolf" in an episode from Season 5 (got stabbed to death by Carol), and Owen Harn, who played "crazed filthy man" (shouted "we're the same, we're the same!" at Glenn after becoming, apparently, crazed), also in Season 5.  …

Review: ABC's 'When We Rise' is a necessary conversation on history and future of LGBTQ rights

When We Rise traces the beginnings of the gay rights movement from the 1970s to present day.

ABC

When We Rise traces the beginnings of the gay rights movement from the 1970s to present day.

When We Rise explores the turbulent and passionate history of the LGBTQ rights movement, but it also challenges us to join the battle for equal rights.

Starting Monday, ABC's four-part special series chronicles the start of the LGBTQ rights movement from its rocky beginnings in the 1970s to present day. It's told through the eyes of some of those who lived through the discrimination and violence, namely Cleve Jones, Ken Jones and Roma Guy.

Though When We Rise skips past the Stonewall Riots of 1969, the series picks up speed with the three now-famous activists coming to an epicenter of the movement in San Francisco.

Cleve (the younger played by Austin P. McKenzie, the older by Guy Pearce) escapes his repressive life and parents in Arizona to join the peace movement in northern California. Roma (younger, Emily Skeggs; older, Mary-Louise Parker) comes back to the U.S. after peace work in Africa to help create the first women's center run by women for women. And Ken (young, Jonathan Majors; older, Michael K. Williams) is a Vietnam veteran whose story arc involves devastating loss and struggling to find a place in the world as a gay black man. …

Coming to Hulu in March: 'Harlots,' 'Clueless,' Fargo Season 2 and more

Hulu

Hulu original series Harlots traces the lives of a group of young prostitutes in 18th century England.

Hulu has a killer lineup of new additions coming in this month, including two new original shows National Treasure and Harlots.

National Treasure: No, not the Nicolas Cage movie. The Hulu original sees a famous comedian's (Robbie Coltrane) world is thrown into chaos when accusations of past sexual abuse come to light. The four-part series examines the start of the scandal and the subsequent fallout. The storyline sounds similar to the Bill Cosby scandal, but creator Jack Thorne refuted those theories at the TCA press tour last month. March 1

Carrie: The 1976 Stephen King horror flick is where the high school drama film trend got its start. The movie follows a shy, oppressed teenager (Sissy Spacek) who bears the brunt of her classmates' most vicious cruelty. The relentless torment from the girls in school combined with her ultra religious mother culminate in a spectacle of telekinesis and pig's blood at the high school prom. March 1

Clueless: Don't be a virgin who can't drive. Are you going to let this month go by without watching this legendary ‘90s movie at least once? As if! March 1 …
