Orson Welles' Directed Films Ranked Worst To Best

Surveying Welles' filmography as a whole, some trends emerge. It's easy to see that Welles was a fan of Shakespeare, particularly the Bard's characters who author their own undoing. Whenever Welles portrays relationships, his characters evince betrayal, hypocrisy, and deception. He returns to the turn of the 19th into the 20th century repeatedly, an unexpectedly early era for a man born in 1915.He was also remarkably prolific. Even after winnowing his filmography down to the projects he directed...

Netflix's The Starling Is A Long-Awaited Dream Come True For Screenwriter Matt Harris [Interview]

Making movies is hard. That's no secret. But sometimes getting a specific movie made is exceptionally difficult, and it takes years to make it happen. Such is the case with "The Starling," an upcoming Netflix drama starring Melissa McCarthy that has been more than 15 years in the making. For screenwriter Matt Harris, it's the conclusion to a long and winding road. Snapping the tape at the end of a marathon. Popping the champagne at the end of a race.The script had been making the rounds in Holly...

Pomona edges into Quentin Tarantino’s ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’ novel

Quentin Tarantino’s movies tend to go on longer than is strictly necessary. The same holds true for his bestselling novelization of his own screenplay for “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood,” which runs 400 pages. But the extra space does allow for digressions that weren’t part of his digression-filled 2-hour, 41-minute movie (which I liked, let me hasten to say). And in one scenic byway, brought to my attention by reader Allen Callaci, a Texas cowboy picks up a young hitchhiker and starts a convers...

Pitch Perfect TV Series With Adam Devine Will Sing Again On Peacock

"Pitch Perfect," the three-film franchise about co-eds who sing acapella mash-ups of popular songs, will continue as a streaming series. Peacock has announced a straight-to-series order for a show that is annoyingly called "Pitch Perfect." (Can we put a moratorium on franchise entries being named the exact same thing as other entries in its own franchise? Please? Thank you.)

Every Sofia Coppola Film Ranked From Worst To Best

Sofia Coppola is an auteur. While the usefulness and validity of that term is up for debate, Coppola is a director that fits that description completely. Her films have a particular look, one that you can recall simply by hearing her name, and share many common themes. Coppola likes how the sun looks as it peeks through the leaves. She lingers on her characters' inner lives, and she finds herself returning again and again to the topic of fame, illuminating both its pressure and its allure. Much ...

Dune And No Time To Die Secure Chinese Releases — Here's Why That Matters

China is the world's biggest movie market and Hollywood tentpole films have become increasingly reliant on it and other international territories to boost their box office haul.

The Best Animated Film Of Each Decade

Animation has been a tried-and-true staple at theaters since the birth of cinema itself, and while the format has had its creative ups and downs, there are great animated films to be found through each decade of film history.

The Biggest Surprises And Shocks From The 2021 Emmy Awards

Last night's ceremony was the least-surprising Emmy Awards in quite some time. Of course "The Crown" swept the drama awards. Of course "Ted Lasso" (mostly) swept the comedy awards. Of course popular, hip genre shows like "The Mandalorian" and "WandaVision" didn't make a dent in the major categories. The running joke among TV fans online was that voters clearly only watched a handful of (the whitest) shows before voting.But that doesn't mean there weren't surprises. And shocks.

He was important enough to the University of Wisconsin that they put his name on some theater buildings. He's been attacked for an obvious reason: He belonged to the Ku Klux Klan! But it wasn't that Ku Klux Klan. It was back in 1919/1920 and there was an interfraternity group that called itself the Ku Klux Klan....
