14% Of Star Wars Fans Think This Was The Best Sequel Trilogy Character – Do We Agree?

Yet another Death Star. Luke tossing away his lightsaber. Palpatine returning from the dead. Say what you want about the quality of the "Star Wars" sequels trilogy, it had plenty of controversial moments to get the geeks gnashing their teeth. Here in our galaxy, it was a time of white-hot takes and Twitter flame wars that made the action in the three movies look pretty friendly by comparison.Even for more neutral viewers, it was a bit of a rollercoaster. "The Force Awakens" restored many people'...

Ridley Scott's The Last Duel Bombs At The Box Office As Halloween Kills Dominates The Weekend

Ridley Scott's The Last Duel Bombs At The Box Office As Halloween Kills Dominates The Weekend It's been a mixed weekend at the box office. The steady shores of the horror genre delivered another hit with David Gordon Green's sequel "Halloween Kills," but Ridley Scott's historical drama "The Last Duel" has been thoroughly glove-slapped by a dismal $4.8 million domestic debut. Those numbers are particularly painful when taking into consideration the movie's $100 million budget, which it now has ef...

Rami Malek Impersonates Pete Davidson In A Wholly Satisfying Saturday Night Live (With A Little Help From Daniel Craig)

This weekend brought another new episode of "Saturday Night Live" -- the third in a series of four back-to-back episodes kicking off season 47 with four first-time hosts. "No Time to Die" and "Bohemian Rhapsody" star Rami Malek hosted the show, and although he's best known for his dramatic roles and having "resting villain face," he turned out to be a wholly satisfying collaborator who wasn't afraid to get weird with the "SNL" cast. The Oscar winner turned in a fantastic impersonation of cast me...

In Praise Of Ben Affleck's Scene-Stealing Performance In The Last Duel

You have to hand it to Ben Affleck: when he co-wrote "The Last Duel," the Ridley Scott-directed historical drama that just opened in theaters, he sneakily went ahead and wrote the best part for himself. Affleck, Boston's favorite son, King of Dunkin Donuts, and tabloid star at large, only has a minor role in "The Last Duel," but he makes every single one of his scenes count. And he looks like he's having fun in the process.Affleck plays Count Pierre d'Alençon, and while we see him briefly in the...

The Last Duel Review: A Gripping & Brutal Historical Drama

Ridley Scott, the master behind films such as Alien, Blade Runner, and The Martian, has two new movies in 2021. Before we see the scandalous real-life story of House of Gucci, Scott has another story to tell based on true events. The Last Duel is a historical drama that follows the last legally sanctioned duel in France’s history as Marguerite de Carrouges (Jodie Comer) claims to have been raped by Jacques Le Gris (Adam Driver). Her husband, Jean de Carrouges (Matt Damon), challenges Le Gris to ...

New face

I mentioned in this space the other day that “personal distractions” were among the things that had kept me from posting for three weeks. The main one is the fact that I have fallen in love.  The woman in question is Cheril Mulligan, a theater-and-film buff from and lifelong resident of Long Island. We became acquainted through Twitter, on which she tweets under a pseudonym, and “Three on the Aisle,” the theatrical podcast that I do with Peter Marks and Elisabeth Vincentelli. We got to k...

Ben Affleck and Matt Damon are set to reunite onscreen this Friday in Ridley Scott's "The Last Duel," and in another life, it seems we could have seen their characters kissing.Affleck and Damon go back a long way, having first met and studied drama together back in high school.

Upcoming HBO Max Movies To Keep An Eye On

HBO Max launched relatively late into the streaming wars. Despite the fact that it's dealing with heavy competition and some major growing pains -- primarily in the shape of a clunky and difficult to manage interface -- the service has a robust list of films and series, made up of a healthy amount of, well, everything. HBO Max has anime, classic films, DC animation, HBO's impressive and historic line up, and new, original programming, which spans indie films to more commercial outings. HBO Max m...

Every Terry Gilliam Movie Ranked Worst To Best

Terry Gilliam was always the odd man out in Monty Python -- he was the only American, he wasn't Oxbridge educated, and he was an animator, not a comedy writer. He did, however, find his directing feet with the troupe, co-directing "Monty Python and the Holy Grail." He would also go on to cast Michael Palin and Eric Idle in many of his projects. In Gilliam's first "solo" film, "Jabberwocky," the Python influence was clear, but it would become less so as he branched further into flights of fancy a...

13 Tarantino Projects We Never Saw But Wish We Could've

Quentin Tarantino is one of the most influential American filmmakers of all time. In the three decades that Tarantino has been making films, he has inspired countless imitators, but few have had the impact he has -- Tarantino's 1992 directorial debut "Reservoir Dogs" literally changed the state of independent cinema. At the time, it was rare for a self-financed film to reach mainstream audiences, but following an energetic response at the Sundance Film Festival, "Reservoir Dogs" was acquired by ...

New House Of Gucci Images Show Off Lady Gaga Looking Real ... Gucci

We all knew that fashionista Lady Gaga would be looking fierce in Ridley Scott's new film "House of Gucci", but new images released show us just how fabulous she will be. While a first-look image showed Gaga and co-star Adam Driver in their best snow gear and the trailer gave us a few hints of sartorial glamor, the new images give us multiple looks to go gaga over.  Lady In Red New stills from "House of Gucci" show Gaga in a variety of outfits.

The Last Duel Review: Prestige Period Filmmaking, Stunning Swordfights, And Piercing Performances [Venice 2021]

Prestige period filmmaking rarely sizzles like "The Last Duel." Ridley Scott, master of high-budget history, is mercifully in "Gladiator" form rather than "Kingdom of Heaven" with his latest medieval movie. All is as it should be here: stunning swordfights, dazzling duels, nimble narrativization, and psychologically piercing performances from the trio of leads.The film's accomplishments teeter precariously on the edge of sensitive gender politics given the subject matter.

‘The Last Duel’ Review: Matt Damon and Adam Driver in Ridley Scott’s Intriguing but Overcooked Medieval Soap Opera

Ridley Scott’s “The Last Duel” is set in France in the late 1300s, and after a clangingly violent early battle scene, as well as a flashforward to the title duel, in which a pair of sworn rivals in heavy armor come at each other on horseback, each brandishing his lance a lot (sorry, I couldn’t […]

Scarlett Johansson's Top Movies Ranked Best To Worst

Scarlett Johansson has had a prolific and multi-faceted career. Despite portraying the character of Natasha Romanoff in the MCU for over a decade, Johansson has managed to make films that cross an impressive array of genres. She's worked in indie films and foreign films, has a second career using her voice as a musician, and more. She resists being tied down by genres or archetypes; when she's been doing the same thing for too long, she swerves, usually with great results.Johansson has had the o...

Kitbag Will Reunite Jodie Comer With Ridley Scott After The Last Duel

Jodie Comer will be the Josephine to Joaquin Phoenix's Napoleon in Ridley Scott's historical drama "Kitbag." Comer worked with Scott on the upcoming "The Last Duel," and earlier this year word surfaced that Scott was considering casting Comer for his Napoleon movie as well. Now, it's official – Comer has signed on to the film, which will begin shooting near the end of the year if all goes according to plan. Of course, it's probably worth noting that in real life, Josephine was six years older th...

The 20 Best Heist Movies Of All Time

Heist movies transcend genre. You can have frivolous, fun heist movies like "The Italian Job," or heartfelt, straight-faced ones like "Point Break." The heist itself can be meticulously planned and meditative, like the one in "Inside Man," or fall apart before it's even begun, as in "Good Time."To be clear, this is a list of heist films, not movies about con artists. "The Sting," "The Brothers Bloom," and "Gambit" are all brilliant, but the heist tropes -- planning the mission, gathering the tea...

The 20 Best Zombie Movies Of All Time

The zombie film takes up a lot of real estate in the horror genre. It ebbs and flows in terms of popularity, like anything else, but it always maintains a foothold, which speaks to how much audiences connect with the concept. Although the zombie genre has lots of tropes and general "rules," there's so much that a filmmaker can do with these brain-hungry members of the undead. After all, horror is a genre that's particularly adept at repackaging social fears and political anxieties as seemingly s...

Ahead of the release of Annette, we rank the actor’s greatest roles, from the insufferable hipster of While We’re Young to his severe missionary in SilenceThe movie might be flawed, but Driver’s performance (playing opposite the similarly excellent Alba Rohrwacher) is outstanding, winning him the Volpi Cup at the Venice film festival.

Marion Cotillard on the “Dark Side” of Her ‘Annette’ Character and More [Interview]

Marion Cotillard won an Oscar for playing singer Édith Piaf, but she did not actually sing in 2007’s La Vie en Rose. But she has a background in music, and she does get to use her actual singing voice in Annette, the odd new musical from French filmmaker Leos Carax (Holy Motors) that sees Cotillard playing an opera singer in a tumultuous relationship with a comedian played by Adam Driver. I caught up with Cotillard this week for a quick spoilery chat about the “dark side” of her character, work...

Adam Driver on singing, surrealism and ‘Annette’

By JAKE COYLE CANNES, France (AP) — In Leos Carax’s “Annette,” an enchantingly demented rock opera, Adam Driver sings in some very strange places. On a motorcycle. At sea. In the middle of lovemaking. Since its premiere last month at the Cannes Film Festival, “Annette” has predictably caused a stir. As you might suspect, opinions tend to differ on absurdist-yet-sincere 140-minute musicals of elaborate melodrama scored by Sparks (the pop duo Ron and Russell Mael) and co-starring a glowing baby (t...
