The 14 Greatest Science Fiction Movies Of The 21st Century

The last two decades have seen an embarrassment of riches for fans of science fiction. Iconic sci-fi franchises like "Star Wars" and "Planet of the Apes" have returned with some of their greatest installments. Filmmakers like Christopher Nolan, Denis Villeneuve, and Alex Garland have pushed the genre forward with stylish, thought-provoking films that prove there's demand for original science fiction stories as well. Sci-fi now intersects regularly with other genres, including fantasy, action, ho...

11 Spielberg Projects We Never Saw But Wish We Could've

Most filmmakers are lucky if they end their career with just one classic on their resume, but Steven Spielberg has made upwards of a dozen. Spielberg has a versatility that is unparalleled among his contemporaries. Whether it's adventure, drama, comedy, historical period piece, science fiction, fantasy, or animation, he's done it, and likely done it well.He's also one of the most prolific working filmmakers with 32 feature films released. Taking time and care to select each project, Spielberg ha...

West Side Story Trailer: Steven Spielberg's Splashy Musical Remake Is Full Of Color And Dance-Fighting

The 15 Best Anthony Hopkins Roles Ranked

The 15 Best Anthony Hopkins Roles Ranked Sir Anthony Hopkins isn't a man that requires much introduction. He's one of the finest actors of his generation, breaking into the mainstream with his portrayal of the villainous Hannibal Lecter. However, his talent was noticed decades before "Silence of the Lambs," and he shined in roles like Richard the Lionheart and the paradoxical Captain Bligh. What makes Hopkins special isn't pretension or devotion to his craft, though. He's simply a consummate pro...

5-Min Featurette on Clint Eastwood's Vision for His Film 'Cry Macho'

"He's back in the saddle again." Warner Bros has debuted a featurette for the film Cry Macho, focusing on how Clint Eastwood shifted from being an actor to a director. It's titled "A Director's Vision" and explores his history and his first films as a director, along with his latest work all leading to Cry Macho, one of his most personal films to date. Eastwood stars as a one-time rodeo star and washed-up horse breeder. After he loses his family, he sinks into depression. In 1978, he takes a...

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...

Movies To Watch If You Loved A Quiet Place: Part II

"A Quiet Place: Part II" is a terrifying, post-apocalyptic creature-feature that centers on family, resilience, and love. Starring the first movie's core cast -- including Emily Blunt, Noah Jupe, and Millicent Simmonds -- while expanding the scope of its world and characters, Part II wisely replicates what worked so well the first time while doubling down on the series' core conceit: To stay alive, its characters must remain silent. In the world of "A Quiet Place: Part II," silence equals surviv...

The Fascinating True (And Not So True) Story Behind Catch Me If You Can

When you hear Steven Spielberg's name, you probably think of "Jurassic Park," "Jaws," or any given "Indiana Jones" movie. And that's fair, but you shouldn't limit yourself to just the classics. Spielberg has a long filmography and among his many iconic titles is the lesser-acknowledged masterpiece, "Catch Me if You Can." So while I have your attention, let's take a journey behind the scenes and dig into the fascinating story behind this film. What Is Catch Me If You Can? "Catch Me If You Can" is...

Horror Movies To Watch If You Loved The Invisible Man

In ways both great and unfortunate, Leigh Whannell's "The Invisible Man" was a perfect pre-COVID-19 watch. Its protagonist, the indelible Cecilia Kass (Elizabeth Moss), is tormented by a camouflaged evil — one that infiltrates and corrupts every inch of the house she occupies, rendering her normal life meaningless. But the illness that Kass' ex, Adrian Griffin (Oliver Taylor-Cohen), represents is less pathogen than pathological; he is a gaslighter with psychotic tendencies, a man whose brillianc...

The 12 Best Action Movies On Amazon Prime Right Now

Ever since "Iron Man," studios have been trying, almost like clockwork, to make action movies using the Marvel formula. "The Suicide Squad" was just "Guardians of the Galaxy" with bad dudes. "Justice League" was "The Avengers," but worse. And every A-list actor under the sun has suddenly tried to become a money-making superhero. Aside from the flying cars of the "Fast & Furious" franchise and the occasional chapter of "John Wick" or "Mission: Impossible," superhero films rule the day, action-wis...

The 15 Scariest Horror Movies On Hulu Right Now

Like most streaming services, Hulu is not the place to go if you're looking for older movies. Its 20th century horror selection is limited, at best. However, its selection of recent horror films (especially the smaller, independent films from the likes of Neon and IFC) is excellent. Hulu is also a great home for women-directed horror films, including "The Other Lamb," "Sea Fever," "Little Joe" and "Saint Maud" (to name some of the best ones). However, I have been tasked with choosing the scaries...

The 14 Best Vin Diesel Movies (That Aren't The Fast And The Furious)

For years now, one question has burned bright in the hearts of "Fast and the Furious" fans: Team Diesel or Team Johnson? Given the latter's impressive career as an action star and family-film icon, one could make a compelling case that Dwayne Johnson -- not Vin Diesel -- is the Fast Saga's biggest star. But while Diesel's career may lack the critical successes of his onscreen counterpart's, the actor and producer has developed a body of work that is no less fascinating for its occasional misfire...

The 14 Best Animated Movies (That Aren't Made By Disney Or Pixar)

Pixar and Disney have dominated the animation landscape for quite some time. Since the first Academy Award was given for Best Animated Feature in 2002, 14 of the winners in that category have been from one of those two studios. But there's so much more to the world of animation than just the mouse and a hopping lamp. While Pixar and Disney tend to take home the lion's share of acclaim, fame, and box office returns, there are a number of animation studios around the world that produce films that ...

20 Movies About Aliens That You Definitely Need To Watch

Films with aliens are rarely about the aliens themselves. These interstellar visitors usually serve as metaphors for human nature, a reflection of our politics, or a means to discuss strange natural phenomena. As Stephen King explained in "Danse Macabre," his non-fiction exploration of the horror genre, the things that frighten or confuse us change shape with each generation. The aliens of the '50s and '60s were Cold War relics that played on social paranoia. The aliens of the '80s reflected con...

13 Box Office Bombs That Are Truly Worth A Watch

Good movies aren't all created equal. While some benefit from great trailers and well-crafted marketing campaigns, other films suffer from a lack of promotion. Sometimes, a good movie is released at the same time as bigger, much-awaited production that overshadows everything else in theaters; it's never a good idea to schedule a movie's opening against the latest entry in a hot franchise or the biggest stars' latest blockbusters. Whatever the reason, many truly great movies bomb at the box offic...

Jurassic World: Dominion Asks A "Single Question," And Tasty Humans Won't Like The Answer

"Jurassic World: Dominion" will conclude this new trilogy of legacy sequels to the original Steven Spielberg classic, and it sounds like it'll take the concept of dinosaurs living among humans to its most logical outcome. The actual quality of these movies (along with every sequel since "Jurassic Park", honestly) have been pretty much hit-or-miss, although the box office receipts would seem to suggest that audiences continue to crave their fix of big budget dinosaur mayhem. There aren't really a...

And now, filmmaker David Lowery's distinctive, striking take on the tale of Sir Gawain belongs to the fans. Though it presents Arthurian legend in a light that feels fresh and exciting, "The Green Knight" is by no means the first film to take a crack at bringing the fabled mythology to the big screen -- nor is it the first time that the ace filmmaking...

Eric Vespe’s Favorite Movies of All Time

Ranking films is always, always, always a fool’s errand. The whole reason we like cinema in the first place is because we go into each and every film with our own unique baggage. Strike that, we go into each and every viewing of a film with that baggage. So, a movie you saw in your 20s might have bounced off of you, but when you watch it again a decade later you’re going in with 10 more years of life experience and it can hit you in a radically different way. A prime example of this phenomenon ...
