Tales From The Box Office: The Last Duel May Be The Last Movie Of Its Kind

Ridley Scott, the director behind such classics as "Alien" and "Gladiator," is one of our greatest living directors, and arguably one of the greatest ever. The man is on my personal Mount Rushmore of filmmakers. 2021 was shaping up to be a big year for the Oscar winner, as he had not one but two movies on deck for this year due to pandemic delays in the form of this week's "House of Gucci," as well as the historical epic "The Last Duel," which was released just last month. Unfortunately, the lat...

Watch: Bears in Exile in Beautifully-Made Animated Short 'Migrants'

With their home melting away, where do they go? Migrants is a wonderful 3D animated short film made by students studying at the PÔLE 3D animation school in France. Two polar bears are driven into exile due to global warming. They will encounter brown bears along their journey away from home, with whom they will try to cohabitate. But the brown bears don't like them there… The film offers a clever dual narrative - focusing on both climate change and refugees, by integrating both stories into ...

The Last Duel And Colossal Are Both Brutal Deconstructions Of The Fragile Male Ego

Grumpy genius grandpa of the cinema space Ridley Scott is rocking a big 2021, with two films — "The Last Duel" and "House of Gucci" — hitting theaters mere months apart. "The Last Duel" flopped at the box office, for which Scott blames Millennials — and if your instinctive reaction is one of anger, remember how much more boring the film world would be if Scott developed a filter in interviews and/or started giving a flying f*** about what Twitter thinks of him. Whether Scott going old-man-yells-...

Emily In Paris Season 2 Trailer: She's Emily, She's Still In Paris

You can't kick Emily out of Paris no matter how hard you try (and I'm sure the Parisiennes are really giving it their all). The Netflix series that's practically infamous for nabbing a confusing Emmy nom alongside top tier comedies like "Ted Lasso" and "PEN15," is back for round two, baby. You might love to hate Emily and her cotton candy European adventure, but the girl is clearly bringing in the money since cancel-happy Netflix hasn't axed her French escapades. The first season of "Emily in Pa...

The 14 Best Giallo Films Ranked

Black leather gloves. Bold colors. Incredible architecture. Gory kills. If you found yourself nodding along with each phrase, then you may just love giallo. Giallo, which literally means "yellow" in Italian, is a subgenre of Italian horror-thrillers that are believed to have emerged 1963 with the release of Mario Bava's "The Girl Who Knew Too Much" (more on that later in the rankings). While giallo was predominantly created in the 1960s and 1970s in Italy, the subgenre is alive and well today an...

Every Francis Ford Coppola Feature Ranked From Worst To Best

Out of all the New Hollywood directors to launch their careers in the late 1960s and early 1970s, Francis Ford Coppola is without a doubt one of the most famous. This is partially a result of his string of hits throughout the 1970s, many of which are serious contenders in any conversation about the best films ever made. But when you talk about Francis Ford Coppola, you also have to discuss the veritable film dynasty he would become the head of — it's sort of like "The Godfather," only with a bun...

Multi-hyphenate filmmaker Augustine Frizzell has lined up her next project. According to Variety, she'll direct "The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue," which is based on the best-selling fantasy novel from author V.E. Schwab that was published last year.

Kristen Stewart Nabs Small Part In Olivier Assayas' Irma Vep Series For HBO

Kristen Stewart and Olivier Assayas: together again. Stewart, who appeared in the Assayas films "Clouds of Sils Maria" and "Personal Shopper," will reunite with the filmmaker in the upcoming "Irma Vep" TV adaptation. We don't know who Stewart is playing, and her role is reportedly "small," so don't expect anything too elaborate. Still, news of Stewart and Assayas getting together again is worth reporting. The series, which is coming from A24 and HBO, is based on Assayas' 1996 film of the same na...

Why President Elect Trump Does Not Represent Politics as Usual (Part II)

Why are people upset about Trump, you ask? How could one possibly see any resemblance to Nazi Germany (or any Fascist regime)? Image is Hitler at a 1932 political rally, courtesy Wikimedia Commons.  Is this not an over the top expression of paranoia? After all, this is a free country! There are no stazi troops marching in the street, bursting into homes, burning books, right?  "What's there to be alarmed about," you ask?  Well, don't forget that, in 1925, most ordinary, freedom lov...

The 15 Best Films About British Royalty

There's something about the monarchy in Great Britain that has always made for tremendously dramatic cinematic material. No matter how much we try to proclaim our distaste for the institution (that it's an essentially parasitic power structure feeding off the British people, that it churns out emotionally damaged individuals who consider themselves above the law, that is has no business even existing in a modern society -- take your pick), we are endlessly fascinated by the royals' exploits.Whet...

The 14 Best French Horror Movies Ranked

French horror cinema, much like horror cinema in the west, has enjoyed a long and storied history. Perennially a reflection of its time and the common fears and ailments therein, the genre has undergone several distinct shifts. Early noir with perverse psychological underpinnings gave way to the French New Wave, otherwise known as La Nouvelle Vague. The movement emerged in the late '50s, a stylistic and narrative approach that subverted conventional filmmaking techniques for iconoclasm, experime...

Ridley Scott's Great, Underseen The Last Duel Heads To Digital This Month, 4K Blu-Ray In December

"The Last Duel" was a big box office disappointment, and I will forever be salty about that. I get it: there's still a pandemic going on, and the film's subject matter might have immediately turned off some potential viewers. But Ridley Scott's "The Last Duel" is one of the year's best films, and one of the best things Scott has done in years (and I say that as a fan of "Alien: Covenant"). While "The Last Duel" underperformed in theaters, perhaps it'll finally find a bigger audience on home vide...

Thoughts on Leadership: Lessons From the Italians

I celebrated Italian Day with Ben Bruno of Intero Real Estate Morgan Hill and the Intero Morgan Hill team. For a little history, Morgan Hill was the first office that opened at Intero Real Estate Services; it is an iconic location, one that truly reflects the uniquely collaborative, family-first culture that defines Intero to this day. To celebrate Italian Day, we all safely came together, and it felt like a big family reunion. The warmth from every member of the team was palpable, and it remind...

Kristen Stewart's 14 Best Roles Ranked

It's been a wild journey watching Kristen Stewart evolve over two decades on screen. As soon as it seems like fans and viewers can pin her down, she morphs into something else. Over the course of her career, she's gone from child star to teen idol to arthouse ingenue. And even as she receives some of the best notices of her career in a transformative performance as Princess Diana in "Spencer," Stewart shows no signs of remaining static.Throughout her journey from punchline to cause célèbre to cr...

The French Dispatch Set Decorator Rena DeAngelo Had A Wes Anderson-Like Adventure In France [Interview]

For the first time in her career, set decorator Rena DeAngelo has stepped into the world of Wes Anderson. DeAngelo, who previously earned an Oscar nomination for "Bridge of Spies," worked on around 150 sets for "The French Dispatch." Typically, eight of them would be going at once. Considering how visually dense the film is, that makes the number of sets all the more staggering. DeAngelo half-jokes she's surprised they pulled it off. In addition to the large number of sets, they were created for...

No one say "Shenanigans." The Broken Lizard gang is back, and this time they're losing the moustaches and putting on tights and berets for a comedy adaptation of "The Hunchback of Notre Dame." If anyone can make Victor Hugo's wildly depressing tale about a hunchback who lives in the bell tower of the Notre Dame cathedral into something funny, it would have to be the gang behind "Super Troopers" and "Beerfest." Searchlight Pictures announced that Broken Lizard have started production on the proje...

The Deep House Review: The Directors Of Inside Revitalize The Haunted House Movie By Sinking It Underwater

How do you make a haunted house movie seem fresh? "The Deep House" has a suggestion: sink it underwater. The new film from "Inside" filmmakers Alexandre Bustillo and Julien Maury is a waterlogged spook show, transferring familiar haunted house tropes to an aquatic setting, a decision that makes the overly familiar feel new again. From a technical standpoint alone, what the filmmakers and cinematographer Jacques Ballard have created here is nothing short of remarkable. The underwater imagery is i...

Every Luc Besson Movie Ranked Worst To Best

Luc Besson is different things to different people. A director of memorable genre films ("The Professional," "The Fifth Element"). A writer of action hits with no fewer than five successful franchises to his name ("Taxi," "The Transporter," "District B13," "Taken," "Nikita"). A businessman with poor bookkeeping skills. A real prick and alleged rapist. But for now at least, he and his nearly three-decades of directorial efforts are solely the subject of this wholly necessary and incontrovertible ...
