The Childhood Moment That Inspired Christopher Nolan To Make Interstellar

Is Christopher Nolan more of a Stanley Kubrick type who make clinical films that raise heady questions about human nature and our place in the grand scheme of things? Or is he a showman who marries personal stories and themes with crowd-pleasing spectacle like Steven Spielberg did in his blockbuster heyday? The answer is, arguably, a bit of both, and there's no better example of this than Nolan's 2014 sci-fi movie "Interstellar."Set in a dystopian future where Earth is no longer capable of susta...

Why Can’t I Hear The Movie?

In theory, this should be a golden age for movie sound. There’s better digital recording and mixing equipment than ever, theaters are incentivized to offer a premiere experience, and home theater equipment is more expensive, elaborate, and ubiquitous. But many viewers report that even simple intelligibility of movie sound is worse than ever. In “Here’s Why Movie Dialogue Has Gotten More Difficult To Understand (And Three Ways To Fix It)”, Slashfilm’s Ben Pearson tried to break down the vario...

Why Movie Dialogue Has Gotten Harder to Understand (slashdot)

"I used to be able to understand 99% of the dialogue in Hollywood films," writes professional film blogger Ben Pearson. "But over the past 10 years or so, I've noticed that percentage has dropped significantly — and it's not due to hearing loss on my end...." Knowing I'm not alone in having these experiences, I reached out to several professional sound editors, designers, and mixers, many of whom have won Oscars for their work on some of Hollywood's biggest films, to get to the bottom of what's...

Peaky Blinders Season 6 Trailer: Guess Who's Back?

"Peaky Blinders" is gearing up for its sixth and final season in early 2022, and now, the show's official Twitter account has unveiled a new teaser for what's to come. It's another one of those 10-second teasers, like the one they posted in November, but this time, there's a little more to see than just Cillian Murphy's character, Thomas "Tommy" Shelby, walking.Earlier this year, actress Helen McCrory, who played Tommy's aunt, Polly, died of cancer at 52. As the matriarch of the Peaky Blinders s...

Jordan Peele's Nope Has Wrapped Production

Good news, Jordan Peele fans. The acclaimed helmer of "Get Out" and "Us" has officially wrapped production on his third directorial feature, "Nope."There's still not much word on any plot specifics, but Indiewire (by way of Variety) reports that Hoyte van Hoytema served as the film's cinematographer and that he and Peele shot "Nope" on Kodak film, including 65mm in IMAX. Hoytema has an impressive list of credits that includes "Let the Right One In," "The Fighter," "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy," "H...

Here's Why Movie Dialogue Has Gotten More Difficult To Understand (And Three Ways To Fix It)

I used to be able to understand 99% of the dialogue in Hollywood films. But over the past 10 years or so, I've noticed that percentage has dropped significantly -- and it's not due to hearing loss on my end. It's gotten to the point where I find myself occasionally not being able to parse entire lines of dialogue when I see a movie in a theater, and when I watch things at home, I've defaulted to turning the subtitles on to make sure I don't miss anything crucial to the plot.Knowing I'm not alone...

What James Cameron's Spider-Man Movie Would've Looked Like

Spider-Man is easily one of the most iconic superheroes out there — and he's certainly the most revisited one. "Spider-Man: No Way Home" will be the webslinger's eighth film, and one that will culminate the efforts of the two iterations that came before current Spidey, played by Tom Holland. The hero is a cherished childhood favorite for many, including James Cameron, the director behind massive blockbusters like the "Terminator" films, "Titanic," and "Avatar.""To me, there were all the superher...

Will This Movie Be The Last Of Its Kind, The Big-Budget World War II Epic?

“Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer, a $100 million historical drama about … the creation of the atomic bomb, could be considered one of an endangered species.

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...

Why Christopher Nolan’s $100 Million WWII Drama ‘Oppenheimer’ Could Be the Last of Its Kind

Christopher Nolan’s next movie “Oppenheimer,” a $100 million-budgeted historical drama about physicist J.

The Harder They Fall Took Inspiration From The Godfather Part II [Exclusive]

Did you catch the "Frasier" reference in "The Harder They Fall?" A '90s sitcom about a Seattle psychiatrist might be an unlikely source of inspiration for a Western with warring gangs of gunslingers, but it's just one of the many influences that writer-director Jeymes Samuel incorporated into the movie./Film's Shania Russell recently conducted a wide-ranging interview with "The Harder They Fall" editor Tom Eagle, who said, "This is the only movie I can think of that has references to Malcolm X a...

The Dutch Angle

These days, movies, TV shows, and even commercials all use something called the Dutch angle,1 a filmmaking technique where the camera is angled to produce a tilted scene, often to highlight that something is not quite right. The technique originated in Germany, inspired by Expressionist painters. It was pioneered by German directors during World War I, when outside films were blocked from being shown in Germany. Unlike Hollywood, which was serving up largely glamorous, rollicking films, the...

Spencer Director Pablo Larrain Doesn't Think He's The Right Person To Make A Britney Spears Movie [Exclusive]

Pablo Larraín's "Spencer" begins with the title card, "A fable from a true tragedy." As those who watched his 2016 Jacqueline Kennedy film "Jackie" know, Larraín knows exactly how to transform what could've been a stodgy, dull biopic into a quietly meditative -- but incredibly compelling -- story that humanizes larger-than-life figures and uncovers new layers that far too many of us may have neglected to consider with their real-life counterparts. In "Spencer," Kristen Stewart's Princess Diana i...

Edge Of Tomorrow Ending Explained: Ready Player Tom Cruise

Audiences have grown accustomed to watching Tom Cruise risk life and limb for his movies, whether it requires him to swing around the outside of the tallest building in the world or belt Foreigner tunes to his co-star's butt. But as un-killable as Cruise seems to be in real-life (or thinks he is, anyway), he's got nothing on his character from 2014's "Edge of Tomorrow."Directed by Doug Liman, the sci-fi thriller (a loose adaptation of the Japanese novel "All You Need Is Kill") takes place in an ...

Since 2013, when the first original shows began to stream on Amazon Prime, its reputation has only risen. In the beginning, many of Amazon's shows were underrated gems that flew under the radar, struggling to compete with the larger efforts from network and cable television, to say nothing of competitors like...

The 12 Best Neo-Noir Films Ranked

The noir genre first became popular in the 1940s thanks to the success of early hard-boiled detective cinema. Inspired by the dime store novels filled with mysterious private eyes, femme fatales, and illicit schemes involving deceit and murder, these films provided elevated entertainment for a mass audience. John Huston's 1941 classic "The Maltese Falcon" was one of the earliest examples of the best the noir genre could be.Neo-noir cinema emerged in the '60s as a response to these early successe...

Chloe Zhao Pitched That Eternals Credits Character Reveal With The Actor Already In Mind

Chloe Zhao was tapped to helm Marvel's "Eternals" weeks before she began production on "Nomadland," the film that would win her an Academy Award. The director behind the tender 2017 Western "The Rider" won acclaim when that film premiered at the Cannes Film Festival, and the buzz followed through on her next projects. So from the onset, we knew the significance of Zhao's involvement. Sure enough, she created a wildly ambitious and thoroughly divisive Marvel film, where cosmic madness and intimat...

Eternals Star Barry Keoghan Says Druig Could Beat Thanos, And Those Are Fighting Words

The Eternals have been around since before Thanos was born, and at least one of them thinks he could wipe the floor with the Mad Titan. Barry Keoghan plays Druig in "Eternals," the 26th film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, in theaters now. Druig is 7,000 years old and he has mind control powers, but he wouldn't need them to defeat Thanos, as far as Keoghan is concerned.In an interview with ComicBook.com during the press junket for "Eternals," Keoghan all but issued a challenge to Josh Brolin h...

Time Lapse of Carnivorous Plants and Their Prey Preparing for Battle

Backed by a soundtrack from Alexis Dehimi that sounds like it’s from a Christopher Nolan or Denis Villeneuve movie, Thomas Blanchard’s short film provides a glimpse into the tiny, dynamic world of plants and insects: “A butterfly in the process of being born, plants in the process of growing, Carnivorous plants in the process of hunting.” It’s all very dramatic, but never fear, a tender disclaimer in the video’s description: “All insects captured by the plants have been released.” (via colo...
