Legendary Video Game Developer Hideo Kojima May Be Making A Movie Or TV Show

Just days after legendary video game developer Hideo Kojima announced that Kojima Productions was expanding to open a film, television, and music division in Los Angeles, he started teasing a new project on Twitter, saying "Recently, I've been revising the plan and script, and experimenting with everything else." Granted, this could always be the script for a new game, but the tweet coming so soon after the new department announcement has many speculating that Kojima is finally going to make a m...

Overlooked Holiday Movies That Are Surprisingly Somber

Most winter holiday viewing is drawn from relatively narrow lists of familiar favorites, to the point that even several of our supposedly "alternative" or "contrarian" choices have become well-worn selections. Only particularly crotchety curmudgeons continue to argue against acknowledging "Die Hard" or "Gremlins" as Christmas films anymore, and it's no secret by now how many of Shane Black's scripts are set during Christmas.But there remain obscure oddballs of holiday movies, often available exc...

Ray Donovan: The Movie Trailer: Who Fixes The Fixer?

When the American crime series "Ray Donovan" was canceled in 2020, fans were devastated; many dad tears were shed. The series, about a problematic "fixer" (Liev Schreiber) who makes problems go away for high-profile clients in Los Angeles, was Showtime's biggest pilot premiere in 2013 and went on to earn high viewership for seven straight seasons. Last year, the series was canceled with little fanfare or advance warning, a decision showrunner David Hollander attributed partially to the 2019 Viac...

Dune Hits Major Box Office Milestone, Will Return To IMAX In December

Warner Bros. and Legendary's "Dune" has hit a milestone in what has been a very difficult year for movie theaters. The film is about to pass $100 million at the domestic box office, with almost $500 million grossed worldwide. That's a pretty big haul considering it was also streaming on HBO Max at the same time.Fans of Denis Villeneuve's epic film (as opposed to whatever we're classifying that horrendously good/bad version from 1984 as) can relive their initial excitement about the spice planet ...

Every Season Of Buffy The Vampire Slayer Ranked Worst To Best

"Buffy the Vampire Slayer" was a groundbreaking series that explored the horror, coming-of-age, and adventure genres with an incredible subversion of archetypes and a rich mythology. The series ran for seven reasons and attracted a strong, loyal fanbase who fell in love with the series' memorable characters. "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" was so successful that its spinoff series "Angel" became a hit in its own right, and the crossovers that emerged between the two shows were enthralling."Buffy the ...

Die Hard Characters As Dungeons & Dragons Character Alignments

Beyond the storytelling possibilities afforded by its fantastical settings, the key to any "Dungeons & Dragons" campaign is the diverse field of social dynamics that can emerge from just a few different character archetypes -- from rangers and barbarians to rogues and sorcerers -- and the color-wheel spectrum of character alignments any player can draw from its four compass points of Chaotic, Lawful, Good and Evil.And beyond its awesome action sequences, what makes the original "Die Hard" (1988)...

The Scarface Controversy Explained

The Scarface Controversy Explained It's rare for iconic films to have achieved such status without some sort of controversy coloring their legacies. Such is the case with "Scarface," the 1983 crime drama starring legendary actor Al Pacino as the ruthless Tony Montana. The tale of the fictional Cuban immigrant turned violent drug lord has become culturally synonymous with the idea of obtaining the American Dream at all costs, revered by rappers, suburbanites, and edgy middle schoolers alike.

Millennials, Remote Work Are Upending Cities—What It Means for Real Estate

Location is, and has always been, everything in real estate. The truism that where a property sits must be its most important characteristic remains undisputed. But what is location, really? What does it mean to homebuyers, and what are the consequences when changes come? The truth is, street layouts, public transportation systems, commuting routes, open space, walking paths, restaurants or shopping, parks, schools and scenic views are malleable both in how they are valued and how they come to b...

Why Netflix's Cowboy Bebop Changed Faye Valentine's Costume

Though "Cowboy Bebop" showrunner André Nemec promised in September that "we will never take the original anime away from the purists," some fans -- let's be clear here, overwhelmingly male fans -- have called foul on the new look sported by their favorite sex object, Faye Valentine. Unfortunately for them, the show commits the grave sin of giving the character (who, we should emphasize, is a bounty hunter in a space western) more practical clothing beyond the itsy-bitsy teenie-weenie male gaze t...

The Dark Original Ending To Pretty Woman We Didn't See

Everyone knows how "Pretty Woman" ends. Richard Gere's rich capitalist character Edward Lewis conquers his fear of heights and climbs the fire escape up to Julia Roberts, AKA Vivian Ward's apartment window. It is a beautiful day in Los Angeles, he has a rose between his teeth, and she looks over at him lovingly. He "rescues" her, and she "rescues" him right back.It has been 30 years since the movie was released, but it still makes me swoon sometimes. Considering the film's fairy-tale premise, "P...

Scarlett Johansson Is Working On A 'Secret' Marvel Project, But It's Not Black Widow

Everything's a secret at Marvel Studios, these days. "Eternals" unleashed a surprise character played by an even more surprising actor in a post-credits scene that nobody (well, almost nobody) could've anticipated, dropping a completely new storyline out of nowhere for the Marvel Cinematic Universe to follow in future movies. "Spider-Man: No Way Home" might as well be locked up tighter than the Pentagon, with only a few tell-tale frames in an international trailer possibly hinting at what might ...

Movies Like Heat That Are Definitely Worth Watching

When director Michael Mann was cutting the iconic downtown LA shootout for his blue-hued 1995 neo-noir masterpiece "Heat," he initially set the scene to a foley mix of faux gunfire. But it just wasn't right. He swapped out the track for sound captured on location. "We shot with full-load blanks," the auteur told Vulture. "We were in these glass and steel canyons and the gunfire reverberated in a certain real way, so they had an authenticity to the place that really was unique."Mann has claimed t...

Tom Holland 'Got Really Scared' Meeting Willem Dafoe On Spider-Man: No Way Home Set

Spider-Man is commonly regarded as one of the most relatable heroes ever created -- and, you know what, I'm not sure anyone embodies this concept any better than Tom Holland does. The popular actor simply can't keep a secret no matter how hard he tries. He's also just as passionate about Spider-Man as any lifelong fan is, and he is apparently scared to death of unexpectedly coming face-to-face with famous actors. Who among us can't see a bit of ourselves in him? Fresh off of revealing just how c...

Doctor Strange 2 Undergoing Extensive Reshoots Through The End Of Year

The Eye of Agamotto might be a little bloodshot than usual in the coming weeks, because "Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness" is gearing up for an intense round of reshoots. And while "reshoots" is no longer the dirty word it once was in Hollywood parlance, this sounds like a far bigger deal than the normal amount of reshoots that are typically built into the production schedule. "Doctor Strange 2" may be in a bit of trouble.According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Marvel Studios product...

Licorice Pizza Early Buzz: A Magical '70s Romp With Engaging And Genuine Leads

If you're a film nerd like me, you've probably been waiting with bated breath for Paul Thomas Anderson's latest, "Licorice Pizza," since it was announced. There's nobody who knows '70s California stories quite like Anderson, and the prospect is enticing — but there is, of course, the other potential prospect: that Anderson finally delivers us a dud in his chosen sub-genre, the one he has come to be the king of. That being said, all signs point to that not happening, which is a serious relief.Des...

Escape from the Bunker

I’ve enjoyed studying films, teaching cinema, and writing movie reviews for much of my professional life, but trying to finish writing just one screenplay has proven much more challenging. Last spring, near the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, my 29-year-old son Wickham and I decided to start a weekly screenwriting workshop on Facebook Messenger’s video chat. Wickham teaches screenwriting among other subjects at Bilkent University in Ankara, Turkey. He video-chatted from a laptop in his high...
