10 Best Ben Affleck Movies

Movie Mixtape: 6 Movies to Watch If You See ‘Escape Room’

The first escape room I did was in the office park section of Amsterdam in 2011. The building was nondescript, live escape rooms were still a novel concept, and I had visions of Taken running through my head. The paranoia was just strong enough to make me send a tweet telling people to call Interpol if I didn’t tweet again an hour later. It went fine. Those were early days where rooms were linear and filled only with numerical locks. Since then, I’ve stopped the assassination of JFK in Berlin, ...

Meet the Hurdy Gurdy, the Hand-Cranked Medieval Instrument with 80 Moving Parts

Donovan’s “Hurdy Gurdy Man” may be the creepiest song ever written about an obscure medieval instrument (made all the more so by its use in David Fincher’s Zodiac), but the Hurdy Gurdy did not give his recording its ominous sound. Those droning notes come from an Indian tanpura. Yet they evoke the title instrument, an ingenious musical invention “set up primarily for the purpose of making drones,” Case Western Reserve’s College of Art and Sciences explains. “In the Middle Ages, it was kn...

'The Girl in the Spider's Web' director explains how 'The Crown' convinced him Claire Foy should be his lead, and why he hopes some people will leave the movie 'pissed'

"The Girl in the Spider's Web" director Fede Alvarez talked to Business Insider about why he decided to take over the franchise after David Fincher walked away following "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo." He explained why he recast the role of Lisbeth Salander with Claire Foy. It was previously played by Rooney Mara. Alvarez, who previously made the "Evil Dead" remake and the box office hit "Don't Breathe," also touched on why he thinks he's a failure if everyone likes his movies.   On paper,...

‘The Girl in the Spider’s Web’ Review: Lisbeth Salander’s New Movie is 007-Lite

The great surprise of The Girl in the Spider’s Web: A New Dragon Tattoo Story (aside from that mouthful of a title) is that director Fede Alvarez wasn’t hired to direct the new James Bond movie. Though Spider’s Web couldn’t be confused with the high-quality entertainment largely evinced by the Daniel Craig era of 007 films, it’s mounted in extremely stylish fashion and lead character Lisbeth Salander is presented as a hybrid of 21st-century Bond and the villains he combats. Spider’s Web is ess...

The Alien Franchise Ranked

The Alien Franchise Ranked When Ridley Scott’s Alien came out in 1979, it was honestly as groundbreaking for claustrophobic thrillers as Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey was for science fiction as a whole. The film is practically perfect — it’s tight, it’s suspenseful, it’s expertly crafted, and it’s finely tuned. Sigourney Weaver knocks it out of the park, as does the rest of the cast, and Scott went down as one of the strongest voices in genre filmmaking the world had seen so far. O...

Rome Film Review: ‘The Girl in the Spider’s Web’

It was probably inevitable that Hollywood would neuter the best elements of Stieg Larsson’s “Millennium” franchise, but did the producers really need to shift it into a commonplace cross between a superhero flick and James Bond?
