The Real Life Inspiration Behind Forrest Gump

"Forrest Gump" famously inserted Tom Hanks into old archival footage, interweaving moments from real U.S. history with the fictional story of his character: A simple yet sincere man, sharing homespun wisdom on a park bench to different strangers while recounting the story of his ever-so-charmed life.Director Robert Zemeckis and ILM (Industrial Light & Magic) employed digital compositing and other groundbreaking visual effects to give Forrest's tale a true-to-life veneer. Thanks to the wonders of...

13 Box Office Bombs That Are Truly Worth A Watch

Good movies aren't all created equal. While some benefit from great trailers and well-crafted marketing campaigns, other films suffer from a lack of promotion. Sometimes, a good movie is released at the same time as bigger, much-awaited production that overshadows everything else in theaters; it's never a good idea to schedule a movie's opening against the latest entry in a hot franchise or the biggest stars' latest blockbusters. Whatever the reason, many truly great movies bomb at the box offic...

The Opening Scene of the ‘Loki’ Finale Was an Homage to ‘Contact’

Who caught the Contact homage in the season finale of Loki? There have been a lot of comparisons made between Loki and Doctor Who, and the Disney+ series is of course packed with Marvel Easter eggs. What you might have missed is the reference in the opening scene to Robert Zemeckis‘ excellent 1997 adaptation of the Carl Sagan novel, Contact. Scientists once argued about whether or not the universe was geocentric (Earth-centered) or heliocentric (sun-centered). The opening scene in the Loki f...

‘Spiral: From the Book of Saw’ Review: There’s Plenty of Gore Here, But Not Much Else

Serial killer Jigsaw is long dead but his lust for Rube Goldberg-like torture devices lives on in Spiral: From the Book of Saw, the ninth installment in the seemingly never-ending Saw series. But in many respects, Spiral feels like a sequel in name only. Hell, take that Book of Saw subtitle away and you have less of a Saw movie and more of a serial killer thriller that seems to be cribbing, badly, from Seven and its many knock-offs. Spiral has the unique distinction of featuring Chris Rock and ...

Spiral's Ending Almost Saves a Gross But Bland Saw Sequel

There’s good news and bad news when it comes to Spiral: From the Book of Saw. The good news is you don’t need to rewatch any of the eight previous Saw films to completely understand what’s going on here.

In Mank, there’s a scene where screenwriter Herman J. Mankiewicz, played by Gary Oldman, awakens disoriented in a California mansion.

Thalberg, a producer who has his own Academy Award named after him.

‘The Shawshank Redemption’ Honest Trailer: The Movie No One Saw in Theaters But Everyone Watches on Cable

The Shawshank Redemption may be a beloved drama that you’ll watch every single time it’s playing on AMC, TNT or whatever cable channel is playing it on a lazy Sunday afternoon. But as the Honest Trailer for the film from Frank Darabont reminds us, when it arrived on the big screen in September 1994, the movie only earned $16 million in its initial theatrical release. Meanwhile, Forrest Gump was in the middle of an insane 42-week theatrical run. Just like Andy Dufresne, the movie had to trek thr...
