Dual Review: Karen Gillan Tries To Kill Her Double In Riley Stearns' Dark Comedy [Sundance 2022]

Riley Stearns, the filmmaker behind 2014's "Faults" and 2019's "The Art of Self-Defense," returns to Sundance with "Dual," an odd dark comedy which sits comfortably in the tonally unique corner of cinema Stearns has carved out for himself. In the director's movies, life is not something to be celebrated, but a punishment to be endured; the joke at the center of "Dual" is that characters will fight each other to the death in order to secure the misery of experiencing an average existence.Sarah (K...

Everything We Know About The Great Season 3 So Far

Huzzah! "The Great" is coming back for season 3, which is great (sorry) news for all of us watching at home, but bad news for the young Catherine II and her efforts to bring the Enlightenment to Russia. Season 2 only doubled down on the dark absurdism of season 1, throwing everything from surprising pregnancy cravings to crocodiles and war-mongering enemies in Catherine's path. At the same time, the show continued to chart its namesake's growth into an effective leader, evolving her from the dar...

The Evil Dead Easter Egg You May Not Have Noticed In Sam Raimi's Spider-Man

Comic book movies are always full of Easter eggs, especially Marvel movies. Sam Raimi's "Spider-Man" films are no exception. You'll find decades of superhero history scattered throughout, with subtle nods to several comic book heroes and villains. There's even a reference to their old rivals DC as Peter Parker shouts out classic superhero catchphrases while perfecting his web-slinging. "Shazam," anyone?But for "Evil Dead" fans like me, there are some even groovier Easter eggs to be found.Aside f...

Alfred Molina Was A Little Too Attached To His Doc Ock Tentacles

Alfred Molina has been the talk of the town lately, thanks to his return as Doc Ock, one of Spider-Man's most formidable foes on the silver screen in Sam Raimi's "Spider-Man 2,"  arguably the greatest superhero film ever made. Dr. Otto Octavius and his villainous alter ego, Doctor Octopus, has long been one of the web-slinger's most prominent adversaries, and he became even more menacing in "Spider-Man: No Way Home." But like many Spider-Man villains, Molina imbued the comic book villain with su...

Spider-Man: No Way Home Is Officially The Fourth Highest Grossing Movie Of All Time

Spider-Man, Spider-Man! Does whatever a Spider-Man film can! Forgive my lame attempt at humor in song form, but this is pretty big news. "Spider-Man: No Way Home" is now officially the fourth-highest-grossing film of all time, not adjusted for inflation, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The film of many Spider-Men (Spiders-Men? Spiders-Man? Doesn't matter. Peter is good at science, not grammar) passed the holiday weekend with a whopping $702.7 million in ticket sales, which means that it has...

12 Movies Like Step Brothers That Will Surely Make You Laugh

"Step Brothers" is one of the funniest movies of the 21st Century, and it's a true testament to writer-director Adam McKay's outlandish sense of humor. McKay is now established as one of the most important political filmmakers in the industry, spotlighting notorious scandals in his biopics "The Big Short" and "Vice."

17 Horror Movies That Haven't Aged Well

Sometimes, talking about art that "hasn't aged well" is an exercise in punching down. But you'll never see us make fun the perfectly imperfect stop-motion special effects of the original "King Kong," or the arch, gothic grandeur of classic Universal monster movies. When you meet old art halfway, it's magical -- the greatest movies from different eras offer a chance to communicate with the past, an opportunity to engage in pop culture time travel. But this list of horror films the /Film crew has ...

Shows Like Mare Of Easttown You Can Binge Watch Right Now

"Mare of Easttown" had no business being as good as it was. Early promo materials, while promising, looked too similar to any number of other "gritty cop grapples with a new investigation and their own mental well-being" shows. The cop who takes their investigation personally is a cliché at this point, and early on, it didn't look like even the considerable talents of Kate Winslet would be enough to save it.That criticism turned out to be exceptionally wrong. "Mare of Easttown" transcends conven...

5 Comics To Read Before Watching Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness

"Doctor Strange" was released in 2016 and it introduced us to an entirely new side of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, with Benedict Cumberbatch's Stephen Strange opening the door to the realm of the mystic arts. While we've seen a great deal of Strange, as well as magic, in the MCU since -- including in "Avengers: Infinity War" and "Spider-Man: No Way Home" -- Cumberbatch has yet to get a solo sequel. That all changes in 2022, as "Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness" is finally set to hit...

"Spider-Man: No Way Home" not only finished 2021 as the year's biggest movie (by a hilariously wide margin) but it now ranks as one of the highest-grossing movies in history, becoming the sort of pop culture event that some of us thought we'd never see again. But there are those who are still waiting patiently to watch the movie from the comfort of home, be it for the first time or just to soak in the superhero goodness on repeat. In either case, the good news is that we finally know when the di...

Movies Like Wedding Crashers That Comedy Fans Need To Watch

Based on the initial pitch and marketing campaign, "Wedding Crashers" looked like nothing more than a generic studio slapstick comedy about two hooligans that wreak havoc on a formal event. By no means did it look like it was "elevated" comedy fare, and at the time Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn didn't have the same recognizable brand that they do now. However, "Wedding Crashers" proved to be a surprising smash hit that reenergized the enthusiasm for R-rated original comedies.Given that many of th...

Chris Evangelista's Top 10 Movies Of 2021

2021 already feels like a broken promise. After the nightmare that was 2020, we could be forgiven for hoping something better was on the horizon. But 2021 was a dumpster fire right out of the gate, kicking off immediately with a violent insurrection that threatened to toss the few remaining tattered shreds of American democracy to the wolves. Vaccines offered a glimmer of promise against a deadly pandemic, but variants emerged, while grifters and selfish ghouls who fancy themselves heroes contin...

The Tear-Jerking Avengers: Infinity War Line You Didn't Know Was Improvised

"Avengers: Infinity War" is a movie that needs no introduction. The first of a two-part conclusion, the film was a culmination of everything we had seen up to that point in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It did not possess the emotional weight that "Avengers: Endgame" did, but still, the ending moments of the film didn't pull any punches. Just when you think Thor (Chris Hemsworth) had put an end (or an ax) into Thanos' (Josh Brolin) dreams of galactic genocide, he is proven unsuccessful and the ...

Real Estate Q&A: What Are My Legal Options After Handshake Deal Over Vacant Lot?

Why Has Tom Holland's Spider-Man Never Been The Star Of His Own Movie?

As "Spider-Man: No Way Home" continues its theatrical rollout worldwide, more audiences are getting to experience the movie, which is really the eighth leg in the live-action Spider-Man film series, as opposed to just a continuation of Tom Holland's Spidey adventures in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In "No Way Home," Holland, as Peter Parker, has to deal with a sudden influx of "multiversal trespassers," supervillains from Sony movies past who are now encroaching on his MCU territory. In a way,...
