The 14 Greatest Science Fiction Movies Of The 21st Century

The last two decades have seen an embarrassment of riches for fans of science fiction. Iconic sci-fi franchises like "Star Wars" and "Planet of the Apes" have returned with some of their greatest installments. Filmmakers like Christopher Nolan, Denis Villeneuve, and Alex Garland have pushed the genre forward with stylish, thought-provoking films that prove there's demand for original science fiction stories as well. Sci-fi now intersects regularly with other genres, including fantasy, action, ho...

Morgan Freeman is one of the most recognizable faces in Hollywood, with credits in over 100 films.

The 12 Best Film Composers Of All Time

There's more to a film score than an opening theme, though many of the more recognizable composers got to where they are by writing the theme to a beloved franchise. Film scores set the mood. They create an environment. As far as post-production goes, music is as important as editing when it comes to tone and pacing. Sometime you don't even notice the score in the background of a film, and that's powerful too. There's a reason that a lot of people like listening to film scores while working. It'...

Don't Worry Darling: Florence Pugh And Harry Styles Furiously Make Out In Olivia Wilde's Psychological Thriller

Between Greta Gerwig, Maggie Gyllenhaal, and Olivia Wilde, I couldn't be more thrilled about this great-actor-to-surprisingly-great-filmmaker pipeline in recent years. Gerwig has quickly established herself as one of the best and most in-demand writer/directors in the business right now and Gyllenhaal's "The Lost Daughter" recently premiered to positive reactions at the Venice Film Festival. After debuting with the very well-received comedy "Booksmart" in 2019, Wilde is now flexing her genre mus...

2021 Summer Box Office Was Up 893 Percent — But Pump The Brakes On The Celebration

It is absolutely no secret that the summer moviegoing season last year was virtually non-existent. The pandemic all but obliterated what is usually the busiest time of the year for Hollywood. Sure, Russell Crowe got crazy in "Unhinged" and Christopher Nolan tried to save cinemas with "Tenet," but the box office was ultimately but a grain of sand on the beach compared to normal times. But there is some good news! The box office for summer 2021 was up a shocking (on the surface) 893 percent compar...

Every Christopher Nolan Film Ranked Worst To Best

Christopher Nolan is easily one of the most influential filmmakers working today.

Scarlett Johansson's Top Movies Ranked Best To Worst

Scarlett Johansson has had a prolific and multi-faceted career. Despite portraying the character of Natasha Romanoff in the MCU for over a decade, Johansson has managed to make films that cross an impressive array of genres. She's worked in indie films and foreign films, has a second career using her voice as a musician, and more. She resists being tied down by genres or archetypes; when she's been doing the same thing for too long, she swerves, usually with great results.Johansson has had the o...

Christopher Nolan's Filmography Predicted Our Current Masked, Muffled Reality

It's been a year now since Christopher Nolan's "Tenet," the movie that was supposed to bounce us back from the pandemic and save theaters, landed in the United States. For those who ventured out to see it, "Tenet" may have provided a surreal moviegoing experience — if only because the scene in the theater mirrored the one onscreen. In both of them, people had their faces covered in masks.There are any number of movies or TV shows that could be said to have "predicted" aspects of the real-world f...

Movies Like Interstellar That Are Definitely Worth Watching

"Interstellar" is the closest thing to a classic science fiction movie that Christopher Nolan' has made so far, blending hard sci-fi tropes with an earnest exploration of humanity's drive to survive. For science fiction fans, it's instantly familiar stuff. Nolan's storytelling doesn't always land as powerfully as the movie's visual effects, but "Interstellar" still works as a thoughtful, understated love-letter to the stories that built the science fiction genre.Stripped to its basics, "Interste...

Impeachment Review: American Crime Story Turns The Clinton-Lewinsky Scandal Into Addictive, Uncomfortable TV

"He's going to have to resign." That's a sentence multiple people say on different occasions in "Impeachment: American Crime Story," the latest entry in the anthology series that began with "The People vs. O.J. Simpson," and continued with "The Assassination of Gianni Versace." Those previous two seasons dealt with murders as the inciting action, but the deaths in "Impeachment" are metaphorical deaths by a thousand cuts, where people are mercilessly pilloried in the press and the court of public...

42 of the Most Mind-Blowing Special Effects Sequences in Movie History

Admittedly, we’ve gotten a little jaded. Digital effects are so omnipresent in our blockbusters that we’ve come to expect the impossible from movies. Our sense of awe has been, perhaps, a bit dulled, even as we’re very easily disappointed (although I don’t see the human-feline CGI monstrosities from Cats pleasing…Read more...

The 20 Best Heist Movies Of All Time

Heist movies transcend genre. You can have frivolous, fun heist movies like "The Italian Job," or heartfelt, straight-faced ones like "Point Break." The heist itself can be meticulously planned and meditative, like the one in "Inside Man," or fall apart before it's even begun, as in "Good Time."To be clear, this is a list of heist films, not movies about con artists. "The Sting," "The Brothers Bloom," and "Gambit" are all brilliant, but the heist tropes -- planning the mission, gathering the tea...

Spider-Man Movies Ranked From Worst To Best

In the '90s, Spider-Man was caught in a web of litigation that made it seem like he'd never get his own, proper film. Two decades earlier, select episodes of "The Amazing Spider-Man" TV series enjoyed a theatrical release outside the U.S. Around the same time, a short film based on Toei's television adaptation, "Spider-Man," played in Japanese theaters. However, these were glorified TV movies. Fans hoping for a real Spider-Man film could only fantasize about the James Cameron blockbuster that ne...

Matt Reeves Wants The Batman To Be "The Most Emotional Batman Movie Ever Made"

Fans tend to have a very specific shortlist of items they expect to see in Batman movies, items that don't really apply as much to other comic book adaptations: a great Bat-suit, a pervasive sense of self-serious grittiness, and a high degree of faithfulness to the comics, to name just a few. "Emotion" doesn't usually seem to rank at the top of these demands, but that's exactly what director Matt Reeves is committed to delivering with "The Batman."

‘Reminiscence’ Ending Explained: Let’s Solve The Mystery of This Sci-Fi Noir

Reminiscence is now in theaters and streaming on HBO Max, and you know what? It’s not half-bad! I wouldn’t go so far as to say it’s a great movie, or even a very good movie. But it’s a well-made original bit of sci-fi noir that takes hard-boiled pulp and blends it with vague futuristic tech. But for all its charms, Reminiscence fails to stick the landing and gives us a rather ho-hum ending that might have you scratching your head. Never fear – I’m here to give you the skinny on what’s going on....
