Every Ghostbusters: Afterlife Main Character Ranked Worst To Best

The development of the "Ghostbusters" franchise has been fascinating to watch unfold. Ivan Reitman's 1984 original is one of the rare movies that could be described as "perfect." How could you possibly combine fantasy, broad comedy, horror, satire, sharp dialogue, improv, and the strong personalities of the cast into a comprehensive 105 minutes? Not every beloved classic of the '80s holds up in a modern context, but "Ghostbusters" has proven it can stand the test of time.Expectations were certai...

The 18 Best Action Movie Actors Ranked

Gone are the days in which a marquee name could draw in a crowd all on its own. Studios now tend to prioritize projects based on their relation to established franchises or source material, and the number of actors who can successfully sell tickets for roles that aren't part of a recurring series or comic book adaptation are remarkably low.Ironically, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is perhaps the only actor of his generation with a consistent fanbase, but despite his winning personality, Johnson's tr...

A new taxonomy of the "Dad Thriller" movie genre

The 12 Best Sci-Fi Western Movies Ranked

The western and science fiction genres have always been closely intertwined. Both require signature imagery, exciting action-adventure setpieces, and instantly recognizable heroes and villains; both can be utilized to reflect on larger societal issues. If westerns look at the past from a more nuanced perspective, sci-fi projects explore the future based on the reality that currently exists.Western heroes were highly influential in the early days of science fiction. There wouldn't be modern sci-f...

Hollywood Ignored a Safe, Realistic Alternative to Guns Long Before the ‘Rust’ Tragedy

Years before the “Rust” tragedy would cause urgent conversations about guns on set, Hollywood had a safe and realistic alternative that it ignored. The proprietary technology was shown to industry leaders and movie stars in the corners of conventions and trade shows, in the sleek offices of venture capital firms, and in dazzling proof-of-concept footage […]

Chris Columbus Would Love To Make Harry Potter And The Cursed Child With The Movie Cast

Chris Columbus directed the inaugural two Harry Potter movies, the first of which, "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone," is celebrating its 20th anniversary this week. He helped establish the franchise on film when the students of Hogwart's School of Witchcraft and Wizardry were all young kids. The main actors, Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, and Rupert Grint are all in their 30s now, which makes them about the same age as the adult versions of their characters in the stage play, "Harry Potter...

Why Spielberg Traded Cape Fear To Scorsese For Schindler's List

"Schindler's List" won Steven Spielberg his first Academy Award for Best Director, and it's hard to imagine anyone else helming the film. "Cape Fear" is a little different in that Martin Scorsese's 1991 version is a remake of a 1962 thriller directed by J. Lee Thompson. Scorsese reused the score by Bernard Herrmann and reused actors like Robert Mitchum and Gregory Peck. We don't have to imagine what it would be like for someone other than him to helm "Cape Fear," because someone else already did...

Every Luc Besson Movie Ranked Worst To Best

Luc Besson is different things to different people. A director of memorable genre films ("The Professional," "The Fifth Element"). A writer of action hits with no fewer than five successful franchises to his name ("Taxi," "The Transporter," "District B13," "Taken," "Nikita"). A businessman with poor bookkeeping skills. A real prick and alleged rapist. But for now at least, he and his nearly three-decades of directorial efforts are solely the subject of this wholly necessary and incontrovertible ...

Democrats are set to unveil a new billionaire's tax and some of the wealthiest Americans are glad. Here are some of the ultrawealthy who want higher taxes.

Billionaires including Mark Cuban, Marc Benioff, Ray Dalio, and George Soros have publicly called for higher taxes on the wealthy.

Tales From The Box Office: How Blade Runner 2049 Became A Cautionary Tale

(Welcome to Tales from the Box Office, our column that examines box office miracles, disasters, and everything in between, as well as what we can learn from them.)It is no secret that Hollywood loves a franchise play in the modern age.

How Blade Runner's Production Was Almost Shut Down During Its Final Days

Rightly regarded now as a classic, the original "Blade Runner" faced many significant hurdles on its road to movie greatness. Ridley Scott's 1982 film utilized some of the neon from the set of Francis Ford Coppola's Las Vegas-set musical romance, "One from the Heart," the same box-office bomb that — together with Michael Cimino's "Heaven's Gate" — traditionally demarcates the end of the New Hollywood era. "Blade Runner" came at the tail end of that fertile period when filmmakers like Scott, Copp...

Joe Montana & John Candy (Leadership & Group Mood)

I agree with former N.B.A. star Charles Barkley: Athletes aren't role models.

One example is the ability to perform at peak levels in stressful circumstances, a challenge faced by almost all of my clients.

John Wick Prequel The Continental Somehow Finds An Actor Capable Of Playing A Young Ian McShane

Today brings more casting news for "The Continental," the upcoming miniseries set in the same universe as the "John Wick" films. We recently learned that Mel Gibson is set to take part in the show, which hails from Lionsgate and Starz, though that decision was met with some backlash, for obvious reasons. Setting that aside for a moment, it has been revealed who will be playing a young Winston in the prequel.According to Variety, the series has enlisted Colin Woodell ("Unfriended: Dark Web," "The...

14% Of Star Wars Fans Think This Was The Best Sequel Trilogy Character – Do We Agree?

Yet another Death Star. Luke tossing away his lightsaber. Palpatine returning from the dead. Say what you want about the quality of the "Star Wars" sequels trilogy, it had plenty of controversial moments to get the geeks gnashing their teeth. Here in our galaxy, it was a time of white-hot takes and Twitter flame wars that made the action in the three movies look pretty friendly by comparison.Even for more neutral viewers, it was a bit of a rollercoaster.

20th Century Spielberg Movies Ranked Worst To Best

Steven Spielberg may not be your favorite film director, but the odds are quite good that you love at least one or five of his movies. He's also the kind of filmmaker whose talents are undeniable -- go ahead, try to deny them. You can't! His work may be too schmaltzy or pure for some, but Spielberg's innate ability and craftsmanship are present in every film he makes, from his very first features to his most recent. It makes ranking his work, already a subjective minefield, a bit more challengin...

The 12 Best Star Wars Books Ever Written

In the "Star Wars" universe, films and television shows may be the big events, but literature has been integral to the franchise since the very beginning. The first piece of "Star Wars" media ever released was the official novelization by author Alan Dean Foster, titled "Star Wars: From The Adventures of Luke Skywalker," which hit bookstores in November 1976, months before the film arrived in theaters. Two years later, Foster returned to pen the first official spinoff novel, "Splinter of the Min...

Marvel Studios Pushes Back Entire 2022 Slate, Indiana Jones 5 Delayed Almost A Full Year

It would seem that the coronavirus pandemic isn't done messing with the upcoming slate of blockbusters from Marvel Studios. Last April, "Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness" and "Thor: Love & Thunder" were pushed back due to the delay of the release of this year's "Black Widow," "Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings" and "Eternals."

Blade Runner 2049 Ending Explained: A Fresh Twist On The Old Chosen One Narrative

One of the most interesting things about "Blade Runner 2049" is its subversive ending. In the 2010s, after making a couple of top-notch thrillers — "Prisoners" and "Sicario" — director Denis Villeneuve entered a new sci-fi phase in his career with "Arrival" and "Blade Runner 2049." "Arrival" garnered eight Academy Award nominations, including Best Picture and Best Director for Villeneuve, whereas "Blade Runner 2049" earned accolades more in the technical categories.

The 10 Best Romance Movies Of The Last 10 Years

When we think of romantic movies, our minds most often go straight to rom-coms, the most enduringly popular romance sub-genre. However, romantic stories can be found in fantasies, war movies, historical epics, literary adaptations, and indie dramas, among many other genres. While I do enjoy a cheesy rom-com, my most beloved and re-watched romantic movies are more likely to be dramas or period films. And that's why you're only going to find one rom-com on this list of the 10 best romances of the ...
