The 14 Greatest Thrillers Of The 21st Century

The thriller is one of the hardest genres to define, because thrillers cross over so much with other genres. From the erotic thriller, the psychological thriller, the cold war thriller, the detective thriller, and all the way through to the action thriller — and let's not forget to take a detour into the seedy underbelly of the neo-noir -- this really is the genre that has something for everyone. While the '80s and '90s were a heyday for erotic thrillers, the 21st century brought a fresh injecti...

David Fincher Announces Surprise Netflix Documentary Film Series ‘Voir’

David Fincher is partnering with Netflix on “Voir,” a new documentary series of visual essays celebrating cinema. Netflix, or at least, the Twitter account dedicated to its movies, had film fans buzzing on Tuesday after tweeting: “Something special is coming tomorrow from David Fincher…” Alas, that “something special” is not a third season of “Mindhunter” […]

David Fincher's New Netflix Show Is Voir, A Documentary Series About Cinema

The previously teased David Fincher/Netflix announcement has been revealed and, just to get this out of the way, it has nothing to do with "Mindhunter." Rather, the streaming service has revealed that Fincher is producing a new docuseries celebrating the art that is cinema. A brief teaser has been revealed, though it is admittedly a bit vague. Have a look for yourself.As we can see, the brief teaser promises this will be "a collection of visual essays for the love of cinema." It will premiere at...

New Blu-Ray Releases Worth Checking Out: The Green Knight, The Night House, Free Guy, Universal Classic Monsters Icons Of Horror Collection, And Columbia Classics Volume 2

It's time again for another round-up of the latest Blu-ray releases. And yes, sure, these movies are on VOD, too! But I will continue to bang the drum of physical media until that drum caves in, which will probably be sooner rather than later. Until that time, though, let's all gather around the warming glow of our screens and read about the wonderful world of new Blu-rays. This latest round-up is pretty big, featuring two different box sets along with several other titles. Some you can skip, so...

Netflix Is Teasing Some Kind Of Mysterious David Fincher Announcement

Well, that's one way to blow up social media. Netflix -- using its @NetflixFilm account -- posted a cryptic message to Twitter this morning: "Something special is coming tomorrow from David Fincher..."What could it be? The prolific director has already churned out bangers for the streaming service as an executive producer and director on "House of Cards," and as the creator of the breakout hit series "Mindhunter," which entered into purgatory before it could produce a widely clamored-for third s...

The 14 Greatest Biopics Of The 21st Century

The traditional biopic seems like it should be pretty easy to make. After all, the subject has already done all the hard work. You just need to pick the best bits of their lives and slap them up on the big screen, right? But that's where things start to get tricky. Do you recreate a list of chronological events that follow the subject from the cradle to grave, and hope that a classically-trained English actor can elevate the film beyond its fairly uninspired structure? Do hone in on one specific...

Gone Girl Ending Explained: She Wants You To Be Your Best

Adapted from Gillian Flynn's bestselling novel by the author herself, David Fincher's "Gone Girl" isn't a movie that screams "aspirational" in the way that a show like "Ted Lasso" does. However, for a certain breed of cinephile -- someone who prefers dark dramas to rom-coms -- "Gone Girl" might be the only date movie you'll ever need.Fincher's previous film, "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo," marketed itself as "The Feel-Bad Movie of Christmas." Superficially, none of his movies are what a perso...

Guillermo Del Toro's Nightmare Alley Loses Composer Alexandre Desplat

As Guillermo del Toro pushes to cut together his latest feature film in time for its December release, a new setback comes in the form of an exit. Two-time Oscar-winner Alexandre Desplat was all set to write the music for del Toro's noir thriller "Nightmare Alley," but the French composer had to back out of production due to scheduling conflicts. He is an early favorite to grab an Oscar nomination for his work on Wes Anderson's latest feature, "The French Dispatch," but the one-two punch of an A...

More Than Bond: Daniel Craig’s Best Performances to Rewatch Before No Time to Die

The official release of No Time to Die is ahead of us as it will hit theaters on October 8. It will be the last time Daniel Craig will portray the intelligent and sexy British Secret Service agent created by Ian Flaming. The English actor will officially say goodbye to the iconic character after a run that started with 2006’s Casino Royale and spanned over four more movies.

The 10 Scariest Scenes From The Alien Franchise

Ridley Scott's "Alien" is a profound, seminal piece of science fiction and horror. In space, no one can truly hear you scream (per the first movie's official tagline), though just because it's unheard, it doesn't mean it's not there. With a profound scope, unmatched awe, gorgeous visuals, and bonafide body horror, the series is operatic, high-concept horror -- basically, a haunted house series set in space. With talented directors at the helm, the Alien series offers visions of a horrific future...

Fight Club Ending Explained: I Am Jack's Lack Of Confusion

The first rule of Fight Club is to never talk about it -- but rules are made to be broken. David Fincher's 1999 film "Fight Club," based on the 1996 novel of the same name by Chuck Palahniuk, was extremely controversial upon release and has become a cult classic in the years since. One thing that still polarizes audiences is the shocking twist ending, which isn't nearly as explicitly explained in the movie as in its source material. Buckle up, space monkeys, because it's time to break down the e...

17 Horror Movies Based On True Stories That Will Creep You Out

The phrase "based on true events," is guaranteed to generate hype for any horror movie. Horror is already meant to be terrifying, so declaring that it actually happened only ups a film's fear factor. It also generates a ton of buzz, as curious viewers want to know the story behind a film, as well as how true it actually is. After all, the world is a terrifying place. Serial killers like Ted Bundy and Jeffrey Dahmer targeted and killed young people to satiate their violent impulses. Claims regard...

Robert Downey Jr Thinks This Is His Best Role – And He's Right

After pulling off the 2008 double whammy of starring in the blockbuster "Iron Man" and getting nominated for an Oscar for the hit comedy "Tropic Thunder," it was official: Robert Downey Jr. became a superstar. This was a particularly crazy development because by that point the son of famed underground filmmaker Robert Downey Sr. had been appearing onscreen for decades, and had only a few years before been considered a drug burnout, box office poison, and an all-around lost cause.Of course he did...

Zodiac Ending Explained: Unlocking The Mystery Of David Fincher's Film

"Zodiac" is one of the best movies of the last 20 years, and I mean that in all sincerity – no hyperbole here. David Fincher's blend of journalistic investigation and serial killer thriller is a sprawling, multi-part saga that by its very design cannot have a true conclusive ending. Why? Because the Zodiac Killer was never caught. But "Zodiac" thinks it has a pretty good idea of who the killer was, and it's not afraid to putt that theory forth and let the audience make up their own mind. So let'...

14 Movie Roles Denzel Washington Should Have Turned Down

It goes without saying that Denzel Washington is a living legend -- a man so inherent to our perception of cinematic talent that his mere presence is considered an improvement to any film. Washington-starring movies become, in their own inevitable way, Washington-esque movies. "Malcolm X," "Fences," "Crimson Tide," and "Training Day" -- with just a couple of lines here and a forehead rub there, each one becomes Washington material in the most Denzel-ion sort of way.With Washington at the ripe ag...

How To Watch The Alien Movies In Order

Ridley Scott's Xenomorph started its hunt with "Alien" in 1979, and though there have been some pauses between installments, we inevitably return to its bleak, Geiger-designed future again and again. With a new Alien series exploring amoral mega-corporation Weyland-Yutani on the way, it's worth studying how we got here. The timeline of the Alien franchise can be hard to follow, as Ridley Scott delved into the creation of the Xenomorphs decades after making the first movie. However, there are a f...

The Extreme Lengths Brad Pitt Went To For His Fight Club Role

David Fincher's "Fight Club" is a film with a troubled legacy, perhaps because it has been misunderstood or because the film itself makes the unglamorous glamorous. An early darling of the DVD market, once likened to "The Graduate" of its generation, Fincher's 1999 adaptation of the eponymous Chuck Palahniuk novel was never not controversial. In recent years, however, it feels like the film has borne the brunt of more criticism, as cultural attitudes have shifted and singled it out as a problema...

Horror Movies To Watch If You Loved The Invisible Man

In ways both great and unfortunate, Leigh Whannell's "The Invisible Man" was a perfect pre-COVID-19 watch. Its protagonist, the indelible Cecilia Kass (Elizabeth Moss), is tormented by a camouflaged evil — one that infiltrates and corrupts every inch of the house she occupies, rendering her normal life meaningless. But the illness that Kass' ex, Adrian Griffin (Oliver Taylor-Cohen), represents is less pathogen than pathological; he is a gaslighter with psychotic tendencies, a man whose brillianc...

The Unofficial Se7en Sequel Is Now Streaming On Hulu

Did you know there was a sequel to "Se7en"? And that sequel is now streaming on Hulu? It's true! Well ... sort of. After David Fincher's dark, gritty serial killer thriller became an unexpected hit both critically and financially, New Line Cinema decided they needed a sequel. This wouldn't be the easiest feat, of course, since "Se7en" (or "Seven," as normal people call it, and as I will call it from now on in this story) didn't exactly have a happy ending that left room for another story. But st...

David Fincher's Protagonists Ranked Worst To Best

Since 1992, David Fincher has constructed a signature style out of hefty, character-driven thrillers. Fincher's TV shows are just as heady as his films, too, with protagonists that aren't typical heroes, but flawed people. In fact, that theme even extends to his music video work, with his 1990 video for Aerosmith's "Janie's Got a Gun" foretelling the kind of director Fincher was destined to be. Thus, it's the characters who shape the core of a Fincher film; the settings are just window dressing ...
