Earlier this month, Stephani and Michael celebrated their one-year anniversary. Their wedding at Lareau Farm Inn in Waitsfield was incredible. Looking back at these photos, I remember what a beautiful fall wedding they had, complete with pumpkins, fall floral designs and an outstanding bridal party champagne spray. Their guests ate American Flatbread pizza and drank beer around the fire pit. Stephani and Michael chose my photography and video combo package, which meant we captured every special moment of their day. Afterwards, I produced and edited two films for them, using footage captured by Shawn Cimonetti. All the photos below were shot by Cat, but Andrea DiMedio did a fantastic job as the second photographer. Check out their wedding photos and films below!

It’s-a me, Streamliner! Did you read that in a better Italian accent than Chris Pratt’s? (I don’t actually hate his vocal performance, but don’t quote me on that.) The highly anticipated and fun(!) Nintendo movie kicked off an early weekend on Wednesday, along with Ben Affleck’s shoe biopic as Hollywood decided that we do deserve a four-day break — but tell that to all our bosses. There’s still more power-ups shows and movies to catch up on this weekends, so 3 … 2 … 1 … watch! —Savannah Salazar
Imagine Ocean’s Eleven, except instead of George Clooney and a group of the suave stars in Hollywood, it’s a bunch of college kids. And instead of robbing a glitzy, breezy casino, they’re doing ecoterrorism. Your mileage may vary on this film’s politics (does it go too far or not nearly far enough??), but it’s hard to deny it as a heist-thriller. It’s a tight 104 minutes and a not-insignificant amount of that run time is spent waiting for various IEDs to go off. —James Grebey
➽ Spoiler warning, but would you believe that How to Blow Up a Pipeline is not the only new movie this week where somebody, uh, blows up a pipeline?
Honorary Latino Ben Affleck is back in the director’s chair, delivering a thoroughly entertaining film about Nike’s attempts to court Michael Jordan. Of course, Matt Damon is along for the ride starring as Sonny Vaccaro, the basketball-outreach exec who tries to pitch his shoe idea to Jordan, and more so to his mother Deloris (played incomparably by Viola Davis). It’s kind of hilarious to think that Affleck and screenwriter Alex Convery turned the premise of Nike making Air Jordans into such an engrossing underdog tale, but hey, what’s good is good! —SS
➽ A 20-something wrote Waterwhile I, another 20-something, wrote about Water.
Everybody, including Vulture’s review, is being the mean to this movie. it’s fine! It’s fun! It’s got Warp Pipes. Jack Black’s Bowser is a hoot. It’s the equivalent of picking Mario as your Mario Kart character: Not the most exciting option, but it’ll get you to the finish line. —JG
Neither Steven Yeun or Ali Wong are unfamiliar to dark comedy, and this collaboration expands upon the mystery of the genre. After a road-rage incident between their characters in a home-improvement store’s parking lot, Beef keeps upping the ante with a cascading series of lies and betrayals that the two inflict upon each other. The half-hour run time keeps the episodes snappy, as do the thoughtful interrogations of classism, the American Dream, and first-gen guilt. —Roxana Hadadi

The film-musicals parody series returns with a new central focus — rather than the Rodgers and Hammerstein era, it’s musicals from the ’70s. This time, leads Cecily Strong and Keegan-Michael Key to stumble into the darker world of Schmicago, which means maybe this season there’ll be murders! —Kathryn VanArendonk

In this new series based on Cheryl Strayed’s book of the same name, Kathryn Hahn plays Clare, a disillusioned wife, mother, and author who gets recruited to write an advice column. If you think that dispensing advice might give Clare deeper insight into her own issues, all I can say is, “Spoiler alert.” —Jen Chaney

Readers of a certain age probably remember seeing Bob Ross paint happy trees on his TV show The Joy of Painting in the ’80s and ’90s. Readers of a certain age might also remember when they made comedies and released them in movie theaters regularly. well, Paint is a throwback to both eras, as this Owen Wilson–led IFC film follows a rivalry between two dueling TV painters. —JG
Need more Matt Damon and Ben Affleck? Watch their and writer Nicole Holofcener’s already underrated The Last Duel. Most of the buzz that year seems to have gone to director Ridley Scott’s House of Gucci, but the better of his two 2021 films was this one, an interestingly woven period piece about a 14th-century sexual assault. French noblewoman Marguerite de Carrouges (Jodie Comer) accuses a knight, Jacques Le Gris (played unnervingly by Adam Driver), the friend of her aloof husband (Damon), which leads the two men to fight to the death. It’s serious subject matter anchored by incredible performances, including an utterly indulgent supporting turn by Affleck. —SS
Available to stream on Hulu and HBO Max
➽ Ridley Scott blamed millennials who were “brought up on their phones” for The Last Duel‘s box-office failure, and even though that isn’t true, I still feel some sort of guilt for letting Ridley down. Sorry, king, I’ll be first in line for Napoleon on opening night.
The power combo of Ziwe and Bob the Drag Queen seemed to be too much for Showtime. Maybe it’s just team Spider-Man over Harriet Tubman. But whatever the reasoning, the network decided to cancel Ziwe’s hilarious and slippery talk show ahead of a season three, leaving the internet disturbing. It’s an easy bet to say Ziwe will get back on her feet, but until then, we still have a variety of episodes to catch up on. Amber Riley saying nothing yet everything about Glee, aka Lea Michele? Patti Harrison and Bowen Explaining wealth inequality? Phoebe Bridgers admitting to appropriating dead culture? We’ll miss it all. —SS

10 ‘Greyhounds’ (2020)
Rotten Tomatoes Score: 78%
A Tom Hanks WWII action thriller released in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic definitely sounds like something that would be hard not to enjoy. indeed, Greyhoundsdid pretty well with critics and audiences alike.
On Rotten Tomatoes, critics praised Greyhounds for its fast-paced action, economical approach to suspension, and Hanks’ understated but outstanding performance. The characters aren’t very well-rounded, and the story is a little too by-the-numbers, but if an absorbing war action drama is all you’re looking for, this one will satisfy that craving more than well enough.

9 ‘The Bankers’ (2020)
Rotten Tomatoes Score: 79%
In this period drama set in the ’60s, two revolutionary businessmen hatch a clever plan to grant themselves and other African Americans a shot at the American Dream.
Based on an impressive true story, The Bankers sports a set of phenomenal lead performances by Anthony Mackie and Samuel L. Jackson. On Rotten Tomatoes, though critics noted the film’s pulling its punches when it came to depicting its story, they praised its strong social themes, inspiring tone, and engaging story.
8 ‘Swan Song’ (2021)
Rotten Tomatoes Score: 79%
Swan Song is one of the best sci-fi movies about cloning made in recent years, telling the story of a family man who tries to clone himself after finding out that he’s terminally ill.
Mahersala Ali carries this thought-provoking drama with not just one but two excellent performances that are hard to take one’s eyes off of. Rotten Tomatoes critics agreed, praising his work in this intelligently written, sharply directed sci-fi tale full of interesting ethical questions.
7 ‘Causeway’ (2022)
Rotten Tomatoes Score: 85%
With gut-wrenching performances from Jennifer Lawrence and Brian Tyree Henrythe A24 plays causeway is about a severely injured American soldier struggling to adapt to life in his estranged hometown.
causeway is a bit of a slow burn, taking its sweet time to build the dynamic between its two leads. The result is painful, bittersweet, but ultimately a very rewarding cinematic experience about trauma and how the connection helps people get past it. Because of this, it earned the approval of critics on Rotten Tomatoes.

6 ‘Hala’ (2019)
Rotten Tomatoes Score: 86%
Apple TV+’s first original film, Hala,is a coming-of-age drama about a 17-year-old girl struggling to balance being a suburban teenager with her traditional Muslim upbringing.
The film didn’t really work with audiences, but Rotten Tomatoes critics thought that it was a pretty strong debut for the studio, beautifully portraying its lead character’s journey of self-discovery empowered by Geraldine Viswanathan‘s nuanced performance and a fresh twist on traditional teen movie tropes.
5 ‘Cha Cha Real Smooth’ (2022)
Rotten Tomatoes Score: 86%
One of the most underrated indie comedies of 2022, Cha Cha Real Smooth follows a 22-year-old who starts working as a party starter for bar/bat mitzvahs, where he befriends a young mom and her daughter.
If Cooper Raiff was already a talent to watch out for before Cha Cha Real Smooth, the touching dramedy only further cemented him as one of the most intriguing new voices in the genre. It’s funny, genuine, has phenomenal performances with a natural feel, and has the approval of most critics on Rotten Tomatoes.
4 ‘On the Rocks’ (2020) — 87%
Rotten Tomatoes Score: 87%
It’s pretty much universally agreed that she’s not a good actress, but as a filmmaker, Sofia Coppola has mostly garnered praise throughout her career. Her drama On the Rocksanother collaboration between Apple and A24, is one of her most divisional works.
Rashida Jones makes for an incredibly charming lead, but Bill Murray steals the show as her larger-than-life playboy father. The two have incredible chemistry together, making the ridiculous plot work wonderfully. On Rotten Tomatoes, critics celebrated the film’s warmth and surprising complexity.

3 ‘The Tragedy of Macbeth’ (2021)
Rotten Tomatoes Score: 92%
For The Tragedy of Macbeth, Joel Coen of the Coen brothers went solo. He offered audiences a riveting, visually impressive take on the tale of Macbeth by William Shakespeare.
There have been many adaptations of the classic tragedy throughout cinema’s history, and Coen’s is undoubtedly one of the most memorable. Cold, minimalistic, and abstract, the director’s execution of the already enthralling material makes it even more impactful, which critics on Rotten Tomatoes love.
2 ‘CODA’ (2021) — 94%
Rotten Tomatoes Score: 94%
When it comes to empowering stories about people with disabilities, few are as enjoyable as the Best Picture Oscar-winning CODAfollowing a young girl in a deaf family who dreams of being a singer.
The cast has an immense screen presence, and everyone is as funny as they are effective in the scenes that require more pathos. There aren’t many surprises or revolutionary elements in this crowd-pleaser, as Rotten Tomatoes critics have said, but it’s also hard not to have a good time with such a sweet story.
1 ‘Wolfwalkers’ (2020)
Rotten Tomatoes Score: 99%
If you need any proof that Cartoon Saloon is one of the most underrated animation studios of modern times (and you really shouldn’t need any), the Celtic-inspired Wolfwalkersshould be proof enough, and then some.
A rousing tale about friendship, acceptance, and authoritarianism, Wolfwalkers may be aimed at children, but it’s an extremely easy film to love, no matter your age. On Rotten Tomatoes, critics were amazed by the film’s layered themes, fantastic world-building, and endearing characters, making it the highest-rated Apple original film on the site.
