13 Movies Like The Wolf Of Wall Street That Are Definitely Worth Watching

"The Wolf of Wall Street" is one of the best films of the 21st century. Martin Scorsese has never lost his touch, but his biographical dark comedy quickly ranked among his finest work. Scorsese is no stranger to long runtimes, but crafting a three-hour black comedy that's consistently engaging is an amazing achievement.Scorsese set the all-time record for the most swearing in a film, and the movie's excessive sex, drugs, and general debauchery courted controversy throughout its release. Some Aca...

The Last Duel Review: A Gripping & Brutal Historical Drama

Ridley Scott, the master behind films such as Alien, Blade Runner, and The Martian, has two new movies in 2021. Before we see the scandalous real-life story of House of Gucci, Scott has another story to tell based on true events. The Last Duel is a historical drama that follows the last legally sanctioned duel in France’s history as Marguerite de Carrouges (Jodie Comer) claims to have been raped by Jacques Le Gris (Adam Driver). Her husband, Jean de Carrouges (Matt Damon), challenges Le Gris to ...

The 14 Greatest Heist Movies Of The 21st Century

As the past two decades have proved, the heist movie genre is as broad as they come. Real crimes can inspire fascinating biographical films, while current events allow filmmakers to explore relevant issues through perspectives of various criminals. Other heist films don't aim for plausibility at all, and many cross over with other genres, such as comedy, action, or science fiction.Just look at how popular franchises have incorporated heists into existing mythologies. "The Fast and the Furious" f...

Why The Entire Third Act Of The Last Duel Was Written By Nicole Holofcener

Ridley Scott's "The Last Duel" has a script with a very distinct three-act structure. That script, written by Nicole Holofcener, Ben Affleck, and Matt Damon, follows in the footsteps of "Rashomon," telling a story from three different perspectives -- knight Jean de Carrouges (Damon), his wife Marguerite (Jodie Comer), and de Carrouges' one time friend turned enemy Jacques Le Gris (Adam Driver). This approach allows the film to present alternate versions of certain moments, creating a richer stor...

Why The Last Duel Is Matt Damon And Ben Affleck's First Script Together Since Good Will Hunting

"Good Will Hunting" helped launch Matt Damon and Ben Affleck into stardom, and won them a Best Original Screenplay Oscar in the process. But despite that success, the two haven't written a screenplay together in 25 years. That finally changed with "The Last Duel," the new Ridley Scott film Damon and Affleck wrote with Nicole Holofcener. Based on a true story, "The Last Duel" is set in France in the 1300s. Damon plays Jean de Carrouges, a knight who enters into a duel with his one-time friend Jac...

Who Is the Best Actor in Martin Scorsese’s The Departed?

Martin Scorsese’s Academy Award-winning crime drama The Departed turns 15 this week, people. Looking back on the flick, I’m still amazed at its ability to entertain, dazzle, thrill, and shock audiences. Honestly, check out this terrific “first-time reaction” from a couple on YouTube if you need a reminder of just how bonkers the 2006 film really is: Personally, I love The Departed. It has all of Scorsese’s usual flourishes, a fantastic, whip-smaht script by William Monahan, and plenty of intr...

The Tender Bar First Look: The George Clooney-Directed Ben Affleck Movie Heads To Theaters And Amazon This Winter

George Clooney's directing career has been all over the map. He came out of the gate hot with "Confessions of a Dangerous Mind" in 2002, but by the time you get to last year's underwhelming "The Midnight Sky," you'd be hard-pressed to find someone who thinks he's a vital and exciting storyteller behind the camera. But perhaps that's about to change.Clooney's next movie is "The Tender Bar," an adaptation of J.R. Moehringer's coming-of-age memoir. William Monahan ("The Departed") wrote the screenp...

14 Remakes That Are Better Than The Original

In this day and age, it's amazingly easy to be a cynic. It could be argued that remakes are lazy cash-ins, that they're a sign of the lack of original ideas left in cinema, or that they exist only to appease that sizable portion of the cinema-going audience that needs to see films in their native tongue, without subtitles. That's true in a great many cases (I'm looking at you, "Jacob's Ladder," "Quarantine," and "The Fog"), and yet there are times when a remake is a golden opportunity to do some...

The Last Duel Review: Prestige Period Filmmaking, Stunning Swordfights, And Piercing Performances [Venice 2021]

Prestige period filmmaking rarely sizzles like "The Last Duel." Ridley Scott, master of high-budget history, is mercifully in "Gladiator" form rather than "Kingdom of Heaven" with his latest medieval movie. All is as it should be here: stunning swordfights, dazzling duels, nimble narrativization, and psychologically piercing performances from the trio of leads.The film's accomplishments teeter precariously on the edge of sensitive gender politics given the subject matter. Jodie Comer's Marguerit...

Every Cameron Crowe Movie Ranked From Worst To Best

Cameron Crowe makes earnest movies. It's his biggest strength and his biggest weakness. Crowe works best when his obsessions align -- when there's the right music, when the romance overwhelms, and when his characters are thoroughly sketched. His films allow for moments of great sentimentality; when Crowe pulls it off, he makes you wonder how he stripped you of your vulnerabilities with a heartfelt speech or the perfect needle drop. When he doesn't, it creates an effect similar to that of watchin...

Kitbag Will Reunite Jodie Comer With Ridley Scott After The Last Duel

Jodie Comer will be the Josephine to Joaquin Phoenix's Napoleon in Ridley Scott's historical drama "Kitbag." Comer worked with Scott on the upcoming "The Last Duel," and earlier this year word surfaced that Scott was considering casting Comer for his Napoleon movie as well. Now, it's official – Comer has signed on to the film, which will begin shooting near the end of the year if all goes according to plan. Of course, it's probably worth noting that in real life, Josephine was six years older th...

Movies Like Interstellar That Are Definitely Worth Watching

"Interstellar" is the closest thing to a classic science fiction movie that Christopher Nolan' has made so far, blending hard sci-fi tropes with an earnest exploration of humanity's drive to survive.

Some films focus on soldiers in the heat of conflict, but there are many types of wartime heroes: spies, civilians, outside observers, and historical figures.Many great war films are praised for their realism, as they spotlight combatants'...

‘Interstellar’ Ending Explained: Join Us in the Space Library as We Ask “Does It Hold Up?”

The very first image we see in Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar is a bookshelf with a toy space shuttle on it. There are dust motes in the air, like you might see in the light of an old movie projector, only these aren’t from simple house dust. They’re from a dust storm. Interstellar made its original theatrical run back in late 2014 when lead actor Matthew McConaughey was enjoying a career resurgence, colloquially known as the “McConaissance.” By now, it’s one of those movie titles that could ...

‘Stillwater’ Review: Emotions Run Deep in the Surprising Matt Damon Blue-Collar Crime Drama

Stillwater has the kind of ripped-from-the-headlines premise that is sure to immediately get eyes rolling: an American student is convicted of the murder of her roommate in a foreign country, and her father will have to take the law into his own hands to try to liberate her. It sounds like Amanda Knox meets blue-collar Taken, and it’s surely the kind of sordid, sentimental thriller that is barely worth a second thought. And yet. Stillwater surprises, with emotions that run deeper and a subdued ...

‘The Last Duel’: Matt Damon and Ben Affleck Wrote the “Male Perspectives,” While Nicole Holofcener Tackled Female POV

Prolific director Ridley Scott is no stranger to movies with a heavy focus on women. With classics such as Alien and Thelma & Louise under his belt, many would put Scott’s cinematic portrayal of women rather high up on the list relative to other male directors. But what separates directors from the truly great ones is that the latter know precisely where their limits are and, ideally, aren’t opposed to getting help from authentic perspectives. This is precisely what makes a recent revelation co...
