Every Star Trek Movie Ranked Worst To Best

"Star Trek" is easily one of the most influential science fiction franchises in history. Over half a century in, the saga's optimistic vision of the future continues to inspire new generations of storytellers. When Gene Roddenberry's original series debuted in 1966, its sci-fi mythology of a future where mankind has moved past racism, sexism, and bigotry was an absolute game changer. Not only was "Star Trek" progressive in a social sense, but the invented elements preceded real developments in s...

Remembering Quibi, One Year Later After Its Tragic Demise

It has been one year since Quibi shuttered its doors after a brief but exciting (to this viewer) seven months in operation. Launched on April 6, 2020 and shut down December 1 that same year, Quibi has gone on to be widely derided for being a $2 billion dollar blunder destined to go down in the record books as one of the most misguided business ventures of all time. It is already being compared to the Edsel, New Coke, Bic for Her, The UPN, or Nintendo's Virtual Boy, and it won't be long before it...

Movies Like Heat That Are Definitely Worth Watching

When director Michael Mann was cutting the iconic downtown LA shootout for his blue-hued 1995 neo-noir masterpiece "Heat," he initially set the scene to a foley mix of faux gunfire. But it just wasn't right. He swapped out the track for sound captured on location. "We shot with full-load blanks," the auteur told Vulture. "We were in these glass and steel canyons and the gunfire reverberated in a certain real way, so they had an authenticity to the place that really was unique."Mann has claimed t...

Everything We Know About Wonder Woman 3 So Far

Patty Jenkins' "Wonder Woman" was a bolt of lightning upon its release in 2017, giving the DCEU its first critically acclaimed film and beating "Captain Marvel" to the punch of being the first major female superhero movie in the post-"Iron Man" world. Its sequel, however, was a different story. Titled "Wonder Woman 1984," the '80s-tastic adventure bowed in theaters and on HBO Max on the same day after suffering multiple delays due to Covid. And when it did arrive, it left critics split, with som...

Movies To Watch If You Loved Fast & Furious 9

Star Trek 4: Everything We Know So Far

It's nothing short of criminal that by far the best film from the recent "Star Trek" trilogy, "Star Trek Beyond" back in 2016, remains the last film we ever received from the franchise on the big screen. Is that a bit hyperbolic? The reality is that Paramount's obvious hesitance and uncertainty over where to take the franchise next is actually pretty understandable, as "Beyond" didn't make quite enough at the box office to offset its budget. (Which feels like a budgeting issue to me, but I'm no ...

13 Tarantino Projects We Never Saw But Wish We Could've

Quentin Tarantino is one of the most influential American filmmakers of all time. In the three decades that Tarantino has been making films, he has inspired countless imitators, but few have had the impact he has -- Tarantino's 1992 directorial debut "Reservoir Dogs" literally changed the state of independent cinema. At the time, it was rare for a self-financed film to reach mainstream audiences, but following an energetic response at the Sundance Film Festival, "Reservoir Dogs" was acquired by ...

Other Ryan Reynolds Movies You Should Watch After Free Guy

2021 is the year of deja vu. It has conquered our airwaves; it has twisted our headlines; and it has massively entrenched itself in multiplexes, where last year's movies are current entertainment. A relief?
