RIP, the Post's editorial page editor, Fred Hiatt

I didn't agree with him all that often, especially with his treatment of the editorial cartoons (especially not replacing Tom Toles with permanent hire), but this is a sad thing.

The Essential Marvel Movies You Must Rewatch Before Spider-Man: No Way Home

"Spider-Man: No Way Home" feels like it's been a long time coming, at least by Marvel Cinematic Universe standards. The end of 2019's "Far From Home" left audiences with one heck of a cliffhanger, setting the stage for Tom Holland's biggest cinematic adventure as the beloved superhero to date. This movie has a whole lot going for it, with Doctor Strange along for the ride, the Marvel multiverse cracking wide open, and whatever surprises are in store we don't even know about yet.As such, it might...

Shows Like Game Of Thrones You Definitely Need To See

Yes, some years ago, "Game of Thrones" ended — a walker was killed, a dragon burned a throne, a boy who couldn't become king became the king, and a fanbase went wild. But whatever disappointments "Game of Thrones" ended with, the show still began with undeniable promise.It wasn't like the others. It was a big-budget fantasy series — a rarity at the time — and rewrote entire conceptions about narratives driven by morality. The good would no longer benefit from the tradition of hand-holding wholes...

Bond Producers Want To Work With No Time To Die Director Cary Fukunaga Again

Cary Fukunaga might be fresh off of directing the latest high-flying entry in the world of James Bond, but if Barbara Broccoli has anything to say about it, this won't be the last time he teams up with 007. The delightfully named owner of the James Bond film franchise can't stop saying nice things about the "No Time to Die" director, and it seems the feeling is mutual. Fukunaga's Bond film might feel like the closing of a door, but maybe it's also the opening of a window? At the very least, revi...

Sonic 2 Brings Back Original Video Game Voice Actor As Tails

Hollywood sure loves to take away voice-over roles from actors whose performances have become synonymous with the character in favor of someone with a bit more Hollywood star-power, but Paramount Pictures just made video game fans' nice list after it was announced that Colleen O'Shaughnessey, who has been voicing the character since 2014, would be joining the cast of "Sonic the Hedgehog 2" to continue her reign as Miles "Tails" Prower. "Taking my old pal Tails for another adventure," announced O...

Thandiwe Newton May Join The Cast Of The Next Magic Mike

The cast of the upcoming (and if the title is to be believed, final) "Magic Mike" movie has been growing (and/or showing) and it's making us feel a certain kind of way. When we first reported on "Magic Mike's Last Dance," there was no word on who would be joining the cast outside of Channing Tatum, who has been gyrating and thrusting as "Magic" Mike Lane since the first film debuted in 2012. But Thandiwe Newton is apparently throwing her tear away clothes into the ring and we couldn't be more ex...

James Bond Producer Barbara Broccoli Thinks Women Deserve Their Own Characters

"No Time to Die" is the latest film in the 007 series. There have now been 25 James Bond films, the last several starring Daniel Craig who is now retiring from the role and the franchise. Of course, speculation is rife in terms of who should play the famous spy that everyone immediately recognizes. I mean, it always is, but now that Craig is leaving, it's hit a fever pitch. Producer Barbara Broccoli, she of the fabulous name, and controller of the Bond films along with her brother Michael G. Wil...

Strays: Will Ferrell, Jamie Foxx, And Will Forte To Lead Talking Dog Revenge Movie From Barb And Star Director

Who let the dogs out? Will Ferrell, Jamie Foxx, and Will Forte bring a happy howl-iday treat for movie lovers; the trio will voice-star in the upcoming live-action/CGI comedy "Strays," about an abandoned dog who tag-teams with local strays to exact revenge on his ex-owner.

Don't Look Up Review: This Smug, Shrill Disaster Movie Satire Is Just A Disaster

Who is "Don't Look Up" for? Adam McKay stepped away from his unapologetically silly comedies with 2015's "The Big Short," a semi-serious investigation into the crisis surrounding the United States housing bubble. It was a new side to McKay, and while the film outfitted famous players in goofy wigs, the reception was positive, and the message was sound. McKay ventured further down this path with "Vice," his acidic biopic of Dick Cheney. The reaction to "Vice" was more mixed -- most critics tore i...

The 20 Best Netflix Original Movies Of 2021 Ranked

Over the past few years, Netflix has slowly been building its reputation as a production company to take seriously during awards season. And since the pandemic took a bite out of theater attendance, the streaming service has taken every opportunity to further flesh out its already formidable slate of original content.

Here's The Latest Round Of Kevin Feige Giving Perfect Non-Answers To Pressing Marvel Questions

There are few people better at giving non-answers about upcoming projects than Marvel President Kevin Feige. (One standout is Dave Filoni, who's non-answers are so fun and lovely that, once I hear them, I no longer care what we were talking about to begin with.) Feige is a master of giving us all just enough hints without spoiling anything. As you may have read, Feige recently sort of suggested that Netflix Marvel star Charlie Cox could appear in the MCU. It would make sense, of course. Bring hi...
