Word of the week: Nikkei

A massive new rooftop restaurant called Chotto Matte is coming in 2022 in San Francisco’s Union Square, in the building that used to house Macy’s men’s store.

14 Family Horror Films That Were Too Scary For Kids

Ask anyone about the memorable movies of their childhood, and chances are there will be at least one that has left some long-lasting trauma. We all remember those films that we watched at a tender and vulnerable age that scarred us for life. In some cases, it's because we watched "grown up" movies when we were too young; more often than not, though, it's because we watched a PG film that ended up containing something horrific, terrifying, or heinous that gave us nightmares for weeks. Whether it'...

Every Tim Burton Film Ranked From Worst To Best

Few careers in Hollywood seem as stable, yet somehow still wild, as Tim Burton's. One of the premier genre filmmakers since the '80s, Burton has created some of the most iconic and enduring movies of the last few decades. He has also, perhaps, relied on his keen sense of style at the expense of his stories, leading to a run of films that are beautiful to look at but emotionally empty. When Burton is at his best, his films are bright, creative, imaginative, and almost magical. However, although a...

The 15 Best Spy Movies Of All Time

Fleming's creation for Queen and Country is now the second-longest running franchise in film history. "Mission: Impossible" has been playing in theaters longer than it ...
