14 Movies Like Knives Out That You'll Want To Watch ASAP

"Knives Out" does a lot of things right. The film, directed by Rian Johnson and starring some of Hollywood's best (a trend that's continuing in its upcoming sequel), may feel unique in its blend of comedy, murder, and sly social commentary. But the comedy mystery is actually one of Hollywood's oldest genres, one that's rarely shy about slipping in a biting statement here and there. A comedy mystery can be sleek or slapstick, dumb or wise, or all of those things at once.Mystery comedies first pea...

The 12 Best Tom Hardy Movies Ranked

Tom Hardy is one of the most popular actors working today, and with good reason: He's also one of the best.

Among large ensembles, Hardy's originality stood out,...

The 11 Best Comedies Of The Last 10 Years

Over the last decade or so, the most popular Hollywood comedy hasn't been found in comedies at all, but rather in the galumphing genre hybrids of blockbuster movies. The Marvel formula -- action leavened with cute quips ("We're friends from work!") and the occasional piece of slapstick -- has been wildly successful. These days, people go to those movies to giggle as they do to watch things blow-up.Nonetheless, there are still films in which laughs are the focus, not the hero's journey. Though ro...

Alfred Hitchcock's 15 Best Films Ranked

With a career that spanned over 50 years, Alfred Hitchcock is an undisputed master of cinema. With around 55 feature films on his resume, it is extremely hard to narrow them down to a list of 15 -- and that's before you even get to ranking them. Hitchcock charted the political turmoil of the 20th century as it was unfolding; with his pre-war espionage thrillers "The 39 Steps" (1935) and "Sabotage" (1936), his examinations of the effects of World War II on the human condition in "Lifeboat" (1944)...

The 15 Best Spy Movies Of All Time

In a 1956 letter to noir legend Raymond Chandler, Ian Fleming referred to his James Bond novels as "pillow fantasies of the bang-bang, kiss-kiss variety." The phrase would eventually be turned around and immortalized as hepcat slang for spy cinema around the world. The business of kiss kiss, bang bang has been booming ever since. 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 ...

Diva Birthday Bash Part I: A woman with too many boyfriends. The original gay icon?

She Done Him Wrong Welcome to Screen Gems, our weekend dive into queer and queer-adjacent titles of the past that deserve a watch or a re-watch. The OG: She Done Him Wrong Screen legend Mae West would have celebrated her 128th birthday this week, and though she departed our world a long time ago, that doesn’t mean we can’t celebrate. Besides, Mae would have told us to. West, for the uninitiated, started her career on stage before hitting the movies, becoming a cause célèbre for her raunchy ...

Mae West: The Sex-Positive Old Hollywood Icon Who Was Far Ahead of Her Time

There weren’t many other figures of old Hollywood like Mae West, a bold comic performer who was at least 50 years head of her time in terms of her material and command of her career. She was born August 17, probably in 1893, though accounts differ. Variety covered her vaudeville appearances starting in 1911, describing […]

Eva Marie Saint and Marisa Tomei on Podcasting, New York Memories, and Rom-Coms

Eva Marie Saint is particular about one thing. “It’s Eva Marie, not Eva,” she says with the trademark lilt, the one that melted the likes of Marlon Brando and Cary Grant in such classics as “On the Waterfront” and “North by Northwest.” “I don’t want to embarrass you,” she adds to her temporarily flummoxed interviewer.

‘Mission: Impossible 2’ Tried, and Failed, to Turn Tom Cruise Into an American James Bond

(Welcome to Man on a Mission, a monthly series where we revisit the films of the Mission: Impossible franchise as we sprint toward the release of the seventh film in the franchise.) The first Mission: Impossible pulled off a critical achievement of Tom Cruise’s career: it turned him into as close to an Americanized James Bond as possible. The 1996 origin story of IMF agent Ethan Hunt was massively successful, grossing nearly $180 million at the box office at a time when such figure were rarely ...

‘The Secret History of Hollywood’ Podcast is Becoming a Movie – Here’s Why This is Cool News

I stumbled across Adam Roche‘s The Secret History of Hollywood podcast back in 2017, and it quickly became one of my favorite podcasts of all time. Roche has explored different Hollywood figures over the course of multiple seasons, painting incredibly vivid pictures of people like Alfred Hitchcock, Cary Grant, James Cagney, and more through highly entertaining, immersive narrative episodes which are all heavily researched and wonderfully performed. Roche writes, narrates, and produces each of t...

The Power of Story

Alfred Hitchcock understood the power of story. He was a bold storyteller. Mixing recurrent themes like the ordinary person, the wrong person, the likeable villain, the observer, stairways, mothers, heroines, silent scenes, sexuality, and distilled wine, he tempered fear and fantasy with a good dose of realism and humor. This last bit was critical and it varied with his collaborations. Black humor, parody, farce/screwball comedy (Cary Grant's style) and romantic comedy in his films entertain and...

Before You Open a Business…

I’VE MET MANY business founders in my life and they vary on almost every possible measure: race, gender, background, temperament, schooling, and intelligence (in all its forms). I certainly observe patterns among them, but they all share one and only one thing in common: they decided to get on the bucking bronco and actually do it. I won’t try to talk you in or out of starting a business. It eventually worked out nicely for us, even with all the sacrifices and tough times along the way. But I’v...

Paramount+ Has Launched: Here Are 10 Things to Watch

This week marks the launch of Paramount+, yet another streaming service in an era that’s already jam-packed with them. But that’s not entirely fair: Paramount+ is just CBS All Access with a new coat of paint, and that service has been around for some time now. To celebrate (well, at least acknowledge) the existence of a “new” streaming platform, we’ve scoured the service’s library and put together a list of 10 things to watch. You probably already know that you can mainline episodes of Star Tre...

The 9 Pieces of (Non-Movie) Entertainment That Kept Me Sane During 2020

We’re going to be spending the next couple of weeks thinking and writing and podcasting about our favorite movies and movie moments of 2020, but I wanted to give a special shout-out to a handful of pieces of non-movie entertainment that kept me going through the hell-year that was 2020. For me, these podcasts and TV shows were like faint lights in a dense fog, guiding me forward and serving as brief oases before I lurched back into the swirling chaos of 2020.

20 Years Ago, ‘O Brother, Where Art Thou?’ Transformed George Clooney Into the Actor We Know Today

George Clooney has been the protean ideal of a movie star for so long that it’s hard to recall a time when his presence on the big screen was more typified by playing the Caped Crusader in a comically terrible film. Even now that box office results have been decimated by the pandemic, there are few actors who perfectly embody the notion of what it is to be an old-fashioned movie star like Clooney. His always-at-100 smile, his dapper style, and a public look that often recalls the masculinity o...

Cary Grant’s Career Started Off With Poor Reviews Before His Hollywood Triumphs

To celebrate Variety’s 115th anniversary, we went to the archives to see how some of Hollywood’s biggest stars first landed in the pages of our magazine. Read more from the archives here. In 1929, Variety hated the musical comedy “A Wonderful Night” at Broadway’s Majestic Theater (“remarkably dull … the outlook for this one is dreary”). […]

The sweet smell of fame and success: Doug McIntyre

For more than a hundred years the high cheek-boned and tapered-waisted have flocked to Southern California seeking wealth and fame, but mostly fame. In my own extremely limited way, I too took the bait. Granted, my bathroom mirror did not suggest a career on the big screen — at best a tiny blurry photo in the Sunday paper to accompany 600 words of rambling opining on subjects I am only marginally competent to discuss. Still, as far-fetched as my dreams of superstardom may have been, at no time d...
