The Fascinating True Story Behind White Boy Rick

In 2018, a few years after the period known as the "McConaissance," Matthew McConaughey starred as a single father in "White Boy Rick," a film about Richard Wershe Jr. who in the 1980s became the youngest FBI informant ever at the age of 14. The premise was too compelling for Hollywood to pass up. Wershe was involved in Detroit's drug trade during the War on Drugs, but three years after the FBI no longer needed him as an informant, he was arrested for cocaine possession and became the longest-se...

The 16 Best '80s Action Movies Ranked

"There is no such thing as an action movie," says Steven E. de Souza, writer of more than one film venerated below, "'Action movie' is a term that was invented in the '80s." He's not wrong. Before the MTV age, action was diversified. Swashbucklers. Westerns. War epics. Crime thrillers. Fists of fury. All the way back to Buster Keaton, audiences thrilled at feats of derring-do, but action was just another tool in filmmakers' boxes.1982's "First Blood," the cinematic debut of John Rambo, contains ...

Watch: Clever Dark Comedy Short Film 'Two Puddles' by Tim Keeling

"What happened down there?!" Okay this short rules. Two Puddles is a very clever dark comedy / horror short made by filmmaker Tim Keeling.

Why Peaky Blinders Is Ending – Here's What We Know

It was announced in January of 2021 that the currently in-development sixth season of "Peaky Blinders" (that'd be sixth series for our friends across the pond) would ultimately be the show's last.

But while the tentative plans for a seventh season may have b...
