Netflix's Most Watched Films Last Week Took A Surprising Turn

I can't believe I'm saying this, but "Don't Look Up" has finally been kicked out of the top spot on the Netflix top 10. The film enjoyed a consistent reign of domination for three weeks but didn't quite make the full month due to a newfound obsession with a movie that, quite frankly, I am shocked dethroned the highly-debated satire. This week's chart toppers are predominantly titles we've seen for a few weeks now, with only three films making a first-time appearance. Kids' fare is surprisingly l...

Charlie Chaplin and the art of metamorphosis

Frogs that become princes; Lot’s wife turned into a pillar of salt; a host of Greek and Roman mythical characters transformed into spider, wolf, tree, rock, or what have you: ever since classical antiquity, astonishing transformations have been powerful vehicles of thought and feeling in folklore, myth, religion, and imaginative literature. And they continue to be so, from Kafka’s The Metamorphosis to Marie Darrieussecq’s novel Truismes, whose protagonist turns into a sow. In the movies, too, th...

An Early Twilight Script Had Bella Escaping The FBI On A Jet Ski

When we hear the title "Twilight," our minds immediately drift into the happy-place world of blue hues, pacific northwest landscapes, slurpy cups full of blood, shirtless sparkly torsos, and... Ahem. Okay, maybe that's just me. But that's neither here nor there. The important takeaway is that in the many years of its cinematic existence, the "Twilight" saga has seared a certain impression into our brains. The supernatural love story is all about existential yearning, Romeo and Juliet allusions, ...

Every Emma Watson Role Ranked Worst To Best

The audience discovered Emma Watson when she was only 11 years old. The role of Hermione Granger didn't just launch Watson's acting career, but made it, as she spent a decade filming the eight-movie series. In the following decade, the young Brit then proved she could do more than play a teenage wizard, appearing in almost a dozen movies and trying her hand at different types of characters and genres, building on the reputation that Hermione gave her.Acting isn't Watson's only passion, though.

Wapta Falls Hike or Snowshoe in Winter

In the winter a Wapta Falls hike or snowshoe makes for a delightful half day outing. It’s a longer hike in the winter since you basically start from the Trans-Canada Highway, so you must add a few kilometres to reach the summer trailhead. If you’re staying in the Field – Golden corridor, or you have a few hours to spare while you’re driving between Golden and Calgary, I would encourage you to do the hike.  We opted for snowshoes on the Wapta Falls hike but even with as much snow as you see in th...

This article contains spoilers for the new episode of "The Book of Boba Fett."Watch enough Robert Rodriguez films, and you will quickly realize that Danny Trejo is the Michael Caine to his Christopher Nolan. The director and actor first joined forces on 1995's "Desperado" prior to learning they're actually second cousins. They would go on to reunite a year later for "From Dusk Till Dawn," in which Trejo played a vampiric bartender name Razor Charlie, and again for 2000's "Spy Kids," where Trejo ...

The Tender Bar Screenwriter William Monahan On Adapting JR Moehringer's Unusual Memoir [Interview]

"The Tender Bar" is a story with a kind heart. Based on JR Moehringer's memoir, the film adaptation doesn't sugarcoat conflict to achieve any of its feel-good moments, either. The drama focuses on the bad times as much as the good times. Screenwriter William Monahan is behind the adaptation, which features Ben Affleck as the watchful Uncle Charlie. Anyone with a large family or lucky enough to have an Uncle Charlie, related or not, will recognize the beauty of the character. The story is about f...

Substitute for Drambuie

The golden color Scottish whiskey Drambuie is known for its unique flavor. It is a versatile liqueur used to mix different cocktails and is also used to improve the flavor in different food recipes, especially in pastries. This liqueur is extremely popular for the Rusty Nail cocktail as it is the star ingredient. It would be frustrating when you’re about to make something that calls for this ingredient and can’t find it, or you’ve run out of it. This shouldn’t be a problem as other alternatives ...

How Tom Holland's Failed James Bond Pitch Led To His Role In Uncharted

The "Uncharted" movie has changed dramatically since it was first announced what feels like a lifetime ago. (In reality, it was in 2008, so same difference.) Early on, David O. Russell was set to direct the movie, with Mark Wahlberg starring as Nathan Drake in a re-imagining of the "Uncharted" video games that supposedly would've featured a dysfunctional family at its core, like so many of Russell's other films. Numerous director changes and script rewrites later, the final version is now a Nath...

The 20 Best Feel-Bad Movies You Need To Watch

Watching a film is always an emotional commitment. We empathize with the characters, good and bad, and we stay invested in what happens to them. With many movies, we're looking to feel something positive as the credits roll. A sense of victory, or relief, or, frequently, happiness depending on the type of film. But sometimes we're looking for a weirder catharsis. We're looking for the downer movie. We want to be haunted. The reasons why are complicated, but it comes down to being human.These are...

The Unsettling Reason Willy Wonka's Tunnel Scene Feels So Terrifying

"Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory" is not a horror movie. Sure, much of the plot revolves around an eccentric recluse who lures unsuspecting children and their guardians into his chocolate factory to endure potentially life-threatening tests so that he can secure an heir. And yes, the factory is powered by the slave labored of musically inclined, orange little people, but it is still a well-loved children's movie that has captivated audiences for 50 years since its initial release in 1971.O...

The Labyrinth – Simon Stålenhag Art Book Review

The Labyrinth is the latest narrative art book by renowned Swedish artist Simon Stålenhag, who previously bought us such fascinating titles like Tales From The Loop, Things From The Flood and The Electric State. An eight-wheeled vehicle trundles across a barren landscape of ash and ruined buildings toward a lone bunker deep in the wilderness. Inside the vehicle are three passengers: two scientists―who plan to use the outpost as a home base for the study of world-ending phenomena―and a boy nam...

It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia Season 15 Ending Explained: The Gang Are America, Sweetheart

The season finale of the record-breaking fifteenth season aired in December, capping off the series' longest-running single arc following the gang on their vacation in Ireland for four full episodes.

"I feel like a woodland creature or like a Laura Ingalls Wilder girl.... I think the brown hair brings out my hardworking and serious side, which is good for the winter — like the fable of the ant and the grasshopper."

Said a 25-year-old software engineer/swimsuit designer, quoted in (NYT).  And one hairdresser says her clients "feel like brunette gives them more power and strength." That color theory reminds me of dumb TV shows of the 1970s like "Three's Company" and "Charlie's Angels." Moving more deeply into this NYT update on hair-color trends, we learn that "On TikTok, blond hair was declared 'cheugy,' in the neologism of Gen Z."  Is being blonde, like, cheugy? @girlbosstown #greenscreen #ha...

It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia's Finale Defines The Past, Present, And Future Of The Gang

It's all been leading to this. The gang from "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" have dropped the penultimate and final episodes of their record-breaking fifteenth season, and they are some doozies. "Always Sunny" season 15 has been all about interrogating the past and the gang's total inability to mature, and its final two episodes bring those themes to a head. In the first, "Dee Sinks in a Bog," Charlie's (Charlie Day) two dads fight for his love, while Dee (Kaitlin Olson) runs into an old foe...

George Clooney, known as one of the better and most prolific actors of his time, is once again back behind the camera with Amazon's "The Tender Bar." With Ben Affleck winning a lot of praise for his supporting role as Uncle Charlie, the movie has garnered at least some discussion as we head into awards season, though critical opinion on the adaptation of J.R. Moehringer's memoir of the same name has garnered more mixed reviews overall. That being the case, I wasn't exactly sure what to expect wh...
