ComingSoon’s 10 Best Movies of the Decade

ComingSoon’s 10 Best Movies of the Decade The 2010s were a decade of mindblowing films that took us through turbulent times with style and substance. It was the decade when superhero flicks came into their own, and horror became a dominant force in the industry. This decade also saw a downturn in the mid-budget studio picture (comedies, star-led dramas), yet still a few managed to rise above. Overall it has been an impressive ten years, and ComingSoon.net is counting down the best of the best...

10 Best Kyle Chandler Movies

10 Best Kyle Chandler Movies Initially catching the eye of audiences and critics for his leading performance on NBC’s Friday Night Lights, actor Kyle Chandler has since become a rising star in the world of feature film. Acting since the late 80s but not really getting a big break until his casting on the show in 2006, Chandler now exists as one of the go-to actors for dramas (and even the occasional lighthearted performance, strangely enough). Chandler has a sort of southern charm about him,...

Berlin Film Review: Casey Affleck’s ‘Light of My Life’

Casey Affleck has appeared in a vast range of movies, but when it comes to the work that defines him as an actor he has long demonstrated a certain penchant for slow-cooked artisanal cinema — for films that revel in their high-mindedness and move at a snail’s pace to prove it. That mode probably kicked […]

Anti-Hunting Group PETA’s “Kill Mill” Slaughtered Nearly 2,000 Cats & Dogs in 2018

Anti-Hunting Group PETA’s “Kill Mill” Slaughtered Nearly 2,000 Cats & Dogs in 2018 WASHINGTON, DC – -(AmmoLand.com)- People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) has once again proved its name rings hollow.

So long, sun dance! Robert Redford has us falling for his charms one last time, says BRIAN VINER 

The Old Man & The Gun (12A) Verdict: Whimsically engaging  Rating: Robert Redford gives what he has said will be his valedictory cinematic performance in the Old Man & The Gun, before shuffling, or at least walking with the purposeful but rather stiff gait of the codger he now inescapably is, into retirement. It appears that the great man, now 82, might backtrack on his plans to retire from acting.  But this is the perfect movie for his swansong, if swansong it proves to be, not least becau...

This Week in Photography Books: Paris Visone

  I haven’t spent much time in Massachusetts. It’s true. Sure, I went there once or twice as a kid. Saw the Faneuil Hall. Probably ate some clam chowder. Went to a Red Sox game. But that was so long ago I barely remember it. There’s lots of red brick in Boston, right? I visited Northampton a few times when my wife was in graduate school, but even that was 20 years ago. And Northampton is its own little enclave, like Los Alamos in New Mexico. Most of what I know of Massachusetts comes from popula...

Matt Damon Reveals Original ‘Manchester By the Sea’ Ending That Was Too Expensive to Film

Manchester By the Sea, director Kenneth Lonergan‘s 2016 drama which earned Casey Affleck an Academy Award for Best Actor, ends with a quiet scene on a boat. (I’ll be vague for now to avoid spoilers.) But according to producer Matt Damon, Lonergan originally had a much larger ending in mind – one that involved a flashback, some whales, and a drone shot that simply proved too expensive for the indie film’s budget to overcome. Read Damon’s description of Lonergan’s original Manchester by the Sea e...

Review: The Old Man and the Gun

— by RON WILKINSON — An actor with a career of the monumental success of Robert Redford has a lot of good work on which to expand.

‘The Old Man & The Gun’ Director David Lowery on Making a Tribute to Robert Redford [Interview]

Writer-director David Lowery may have sent Robert Redford out with the bang the actor deserves with The Old Man & the Gun. No small feat on Lowery’s part. The filmmaker behind A Ghost Story and Ain’t Them Bodies Saints tells a playful but melancholic crime tale with the sweeping sense of adventure you want from watching Redford rob banks with his iconic charm. Redford disappears into the role of happy-go-lucky criminal Forrest Tucker, but whether the character is making a getaway from the fuzz ...
