14 Awesome Comedies That Never Got Sequels

In a cinematic landscape where every studio is falling over itself to find more already existing IP to make new movies out of, it's almost rare for films that feature standalone, original screenplays to even get made. In 2019 (the last year that we have accurate data on without COVID-19 restrictions skewing theatrical releases), every film in the top ten highest grossing films worldwide was either a sequel or reboot, and that pattern pretty much held steady throughout the 2010s. Which is why it'...

The 14 Best Directorial Debuts From Actors Ranked

Really, it makes sense: Actors are often treated like puppets in someone else's grander artistic vision. The idea of finally being able to assert some control over the process must sound appealing. That said, not every actor is necessarily born to direct. For each actor blessed with the strange blend of managerial skill and creativ...
