The 20 Best 2000s Horror Movies Ranked

After the bountiful harvest the decade before, horror films fell into somewhat of a rut in the '90s. It was an era that saw the long overdue death of a number of once-lucrative franchises like Nightmare on Elm Street and Friday the 13th, thanks to sequels with lessening box office returns. However, a resurgence began with the dawn of the new millennium. With the emergence of digital film technology and affordable computing power, films were cheaper to make, while the internet was a brand new fro...

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'...

5 Horror Movies To Stream If You Loved Malignant

James Wan is back in the horror game. Carrying his "Aquaman" clout straight into the bonkers genre project that he's seemingly always longed to do, the "Insidious" director has returned to the horror game with a big swing in the form of "Malignant." In a chat with Bloody Disgusting, Wan credits a handful of Italian and horror-centric directors, calling his latest "my version of a Giallo." He applies an apt metaphor to elaborate:"The best way I describe 'Malignant' is, growing up in the late '80s...

14 Remakes That Are Better Than The Original

In this day and age, it's amazingly easy to be a cynic. It could be argued that remakes are lazy cash-ins, that they're a sign of the lack of original ideas left in cinema, or that they exist only to appease that sizable portion of the cinema-going audience that needs to see films in their native tongue, without subtitles. That's true in a great many cases (I'm looking at you, "Jacob's Ladder," "Quarantine," and "The Fog"), and yet there are times when a remake is a golden opportunity to do some...

Dashcam Review: The Worst Person On Earth Screams Over Shaky Found Footage In This Grating Horror Movie [TIFF 2021]

Rob Savage helmed the excellent pandemic horror film "Host," which followed a group of friends having a seance during a Zoom call in the middle of lockdown. It was an ingenious, captivating, and genuinely creepy experience, and I very much enjoyed it. So it brings me no pleasure to say that Savage's latest pandemic-set horror flick, "Dashcam," is downright painful to watch. "Dashcam" invites us to spend a full hour with one of the worst characters ever captured on a screen; a nails-on-chalkboard...

What To Watch Before Venom: Let There Be Carnage

Film trailers are an act of escalation. At minimum, they exist to make the public aware of a project. At best, a trailer can turn a movie with buzz into something you must see, right now, no excuses. In the forever war for pop-culture dominance, trailers lead the movie studios' charge -- which means they're often battling each other for supremacy. Getting the internet's attention, however, is a perilous task; it's hard to do, and when it backfires, it backfires big.Which is why, on May 10th, 202...

Benedict Cumberbatch Was 'Sad' Marvel And Scott Derrickson Broke Up Over Doctor Strange 2

There aren't exactly that many underdog movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the most popular franchise on Earth at the moment, that could genuinely be considered "underrated" or "underappreciated." That said, I'll happily go to bat for 2016's "Doctor Strange" as one of the franchise's more sneakily effective solo movies, bringing creative action, a sense of spirituality, and a knowingly (I'll even say refreshingly) unlikable protagonist into a rapidly-expanding world of mysticism and superh...

Benedict Cumberbatch Improvised Calling Tony Stark A 'Douchebag' In Avengers: Infinity War

Don't ask me why, but nothing lights up certain circles of film fans quite like (usually unsubstantiated) claims that a certain scene or line of dialogue was improvised in a major movie or show. If true, it usually tends to be overblown or a simple case where everyone talked over alternate lines or ways to play specific moments that might not necessarily have been present in the script itself. In short, there's nothing inherently better about improvisation versus sticking to the script! All that...

The Spider-Man: No Way Home IMAX Trailer Just Killed A Big Fan Theory, Sorry

Sorry, Daredevil fans, but that wasn't Charlie Cox in the "Spider-Man: No Way Home" trailer. Ever since the trailer dropped a few weeks back for Peter Parker's next solo outing in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, fans have theorized that Cox, who played the Man Without Fear on Netflix's "Daredevil," briefly appeared in the footage. Or, at least his forearms did. But a new IMAX version of the trailer, unfortunately, has put this theory to bed.While we wouldn't normally condone unofficial cell phone...

Every Pre-MCU Marvel Movie Ranked

There's no disputing that the Marvel Cinematic Universe is one of the biggest blockbuster franchises in film history. However, there are some Marvel films that predate the MCU that deserve the same praise. While there are some misfires -- look, Marvel had to start somewhere, right? -- most of the Marvel films that came out before 2008's "Iron Man" deserve a second look, not only to appreciate how far Marvel has come, but also to remember that, at one point, the X-Men were the superhero team to b...

The 15 Best Debut Films From Directors

A great first film can jumpstart a filmmaker's career and show the world what makes them unique. For example, the conversational dialogue, '70s soundtrack, and nonlinear narrative of Quentin Tarantino's first film "Reservoir Dogs" established tropes that the director still relies on today.Not every great director starts out strong, though. Although he's one of the greatest filmmakers working today, David Fincher's career nearly imploded after his disastrous debut, "Alien 3." Similarly, some dire...

The 20 Best '80s Horror Movies Ranked

The '80s were a boom time for horror. Two formats of video recorder (VHS and Betamax) duked it out, with VHS eventually winning out due to being the cheaper format to license. The proliferation of this technology in the home meant that films had a market outside cinemas for the first time, and rental stores cropped up worldwide. Direct-to-video became a valid way to release films, and a lot of people wanted to cash in on the growing horror craze. In addition, because it was now possible to recor...

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.
