Kesha, Who Once Had Sex With A Ghost, Will Now Hunt Ghosts For Discovery+

Songwriter, actress, rapper and podcaster Ke$ha is now adding Ghostbuster to her resume... because why the hell not?Don't misunderstand me — Kesha will not be appearing in "Ghostbusters: Afterlife." She's just, ya know, embarking on her own personal journey with the supernatural. Her upcoming Discovery+ series, with the working title "Conjuring Kesha," sees her delving into the world of the unexplained with both supernatural experts and celebrity guests.

12 Awesome Action Movies That Never Got Sequels

It's always unfortunate when a promising franchise is cut down in its prime. There are plenty of action franchises that have failed with later sequels -- "The Highlander," "Starship Troopers," and "Die Hard," just to name a few examples. There are also sequels that completely ruined any enthusiasm for future installments; after disasters like "Speed 2: Cruise Control" and "The Whole Ten Yards," no one wanted to see those franchises continue.A great action sequel gives filmmakers a chance to rais...

You Can Now Own Gawain's Sword From The Green Knight For A Measly $450

Many long-fabled legends around King Arthur promise that one fateful future day the 6th century legendary king will return, but in a stunning twist of 21st century fate, it's A24 who will finally allow us to take a piece of Arthurian Legend home.

14 Family Horror Films That Were Too Scary For Kids

Ask anyone about the memorable movies of their childhood, and chances are there will be at least one that has left some long-lasting trauma. We all remember those films that we watched at a tender and vulnerable age that scarred us for life. In some cases, it's because we watched "grown up" movies when we were too young; more often than not, though, it's because we watched a PG film that ended up containing something horrific, terrifying, or heinous that gave us nightmares for weeks. Whether it'...

Fantasy Box Office Bombs That Deserve A Second Chance

Fantasy films aren't released every day. The genre is not in as dire straits as, say, westerns or musicals, but fantasy is certainly a bit of an endangered species -- or, at the very least, a genre in decline.Fantasy relies on extensive world-building and frequently dabbles in magic, curses, and alternative histories. Dragons, fantastical creatures, and visual spectacle are mainstays of the genre; technology is usually set aside. Perhaps for these reasons, fantasy films tend either tend to be bl...

Movies To Watch If You Loved The Green Knight

The pandemic kept fans from seeing "The Green Knight" for well over a year after its planned premiere at the 2020 SXSW Film Festival was canceled. And now, filmmaker David Lowery's distinctive, striking take on the tale of Sir Gawain belongs to the fans. Though it presents Arthurian legend in a light that feels fresh and exciting, "The Green Knight" is by no means the first film to take a crack at bringing the fabled mythology to the big screen -- nor is it the first time that the ace filmmaking...

‘The Green Knight’ Director David Lowery Explains Dev Patel’s Sex Scenes: ‘I Didn’t Want To Shy Away From Lustiness’

“The Green Knight” is dense, to say the least.

‘The Green Knight’ Director David Lowery Talks About That Ending

The Green Knight further establishes a growing tradition of David Lowery films that are challenging, thought-provoking, and downright entertaining vehicles for the director’s idiosyncratic musings. As with his last movie, A Ghost Story, Lowery’s take on the classic Arthurian legend of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight turns a simple enough premise into a fantastical journey concerned with thoughts of goodness, mortality, and even the nature of our very existence. It’s some heavy stuff, with an in...

6 Medieval Tales That Deserve the Green Knight Treatment

David Lowery’s The Green Knight has been justly acclaimed for its striking imagery, beautiful cinematography, Dev Patel’s fantastic performance as the knight Sir Gawain, and more.

Surprise! ‘The Green Knight’ Is Coming to Digital Earlier Than We Thought

Have you been unable to catch The Green Knight in theaters yet or simply want to re-watch the masterful Arthurian retelling as soon as possible from the comforts of your own home? Well, the good news is you won’t have to wait “One year hence,” as the eponymous Green Knight sinisterly told Gawain. The bad news is that this unexpected development would seem to defeat the entire purpose of the one-night-only streaming event that we very recently reported on. Is this some test of character and reso...

Mike Flanagan’s Scrapped Adaptation of Stephen King’s ‘Revival’ Featured a Terrifying New Set Piece

Mike Flanagan has made quite the name for himself as one of the best adaptors of Stephen King stories with Gerald’s Game and the Shining sequel Doctor Sleep. His next King adaptation was supposed to be Revival for Netflix, but sadly, the streamer passed and the project died a quiet death not long after it was announced. But now new details have emerged about his script that paint a clearer picture of what the writer/director was going for. Outside of my /Film duties, I produce and co-host a ...

‘The Green Knight’s David Lowery Almost Adapted One of Stephen King’s Creepiest Stories

Stephen King is known as the Master of Horror for a reason. Yes, he created Pennywise the Dancing Clown, introduced us to a possessed Plymouth Fury, and made Saint Bernards scary for a whole generation of horror fans, but one of the creepiest stories he has ever written has yet to be adapted. It’s called “The Jaunt” and is a short story from his book Skeleton Crew. Now, there is very little horror or suspense for the majority of the story. It’s basically a dad telling his son how teleportation...

‘The Green Knight’ Ending Explained: David Lowery Turns to a Martin Scorsese Classic to Conclude His Thoughtful Fantasy Epic

The Green Knight has been out for over a week now, so I think it’s safe to start talking about the film’s beautiful, bewitching ending. I’ve seen some proclaim the finale to be “confusing,” but I respectfully disagree. Director David Lowery cloaks the final moments of his fantasy epic in mystery, but everything you need to truly know is there, waiting for you. And it helps if you’ve seen a particular Martin Scorsese movie, too. Spoilers for The Green Knight follow.  The Green Knight For Th...

‘The Green Knight’ Spoiler Review: A Revisionist Fantasy That Separates Legend From Myth

The concept of legend hangs heavy over the events of The Green Knight, even more so than the menacing (but largely off-screen) presence of the title character himself. From the very first moments of ethereal tone-setting, where Gawain is seated on a throne as his crown artfully floats onto his head before bursting into flames and consuming him, we’re basically given a visual reinterpretation of an eerily similar treatise: “Uneasy lies the head that wears a crown.” In this case, however, the tru...

‘The Green Knight’ Costume Designer on Crafting Dev Patel’s Divine Outfits [Interview]

The Green Knight feels like a film from another time. It’s like director David Lowery excavated it from beneath some strange ruins in the Irish moors, and it emerged fully formed as it is — a haunting, breathtaking piece of Arthurian mythology come to life. This is aided, in no small part, by the exquisite outfits and armor designed by Malgosia Turzanska, a costume designer who has worked on Stranger Things, Hell or High Water, and You Were Never Really Here. Turzanska was inspired by medieval ...
