Raiders Of The Lost Ark Ending Explained: More Than A McGuffin

An homage to the adventure serials of his youth, Steven Spielberg's 1981 film "Raiders of the Lost Ark" is one of the most celebrated action adventures in motion picture history. It is also rollicking, globe-trotting fun, playfully employing the well-worn and still-reliable genre tropes from the 1930s and '40s, updated in a higher-octane action milieu. Henry "Indiana" Jones, as played by Harrison Ford, has become such a stubbornly beloved character that fans and filmmakers refuse to let him go. ...

Steven Spielberg Is Considering Making A Western Next

You don't become one of the most acclaimed and widely celebrated filmmakers alive by stubbornly refusing to branch out or otherwise challenge yourself to reach new heights. Though he somewhat unfairly gets generalized as a safe filmmaker, Steven Spielberg has sampled all sorts of tones and genres throughout his incredible career. "Jaws" and "Jurassic Park" are rightfully canonized as horror staples, while "A.I. Artificial Intelligence," "Munich," "War of the Worlds," and obviously "Schindler's L...

The Unexpected Inspiration Behind Chewbacca

George Lucas might not oversee Lucasfilm anymore, but he's still the creator of "Star Wars." Despite its massive popularity today with new projects such as "The Mandalorian" and "Star Wars: The Clone Wars," you can't beat the original "Star Wars" trilogy, which introduced us to Lucas' space odyssey for the first time. At 33 years old, Lucas created heroes and villains in two orders, the Sith and the Jedi, always at the center of the space opera we know and love. But "Star Wars" is a diverse gala...

West Side Story Review: Steven Spielberg's Big, Vibrant Take On The Classic Musical Is One Of His Best Films

The camera pans across dusty, rubble-strewn ruins, the bent bars of fire escapes littered everywhere, stacked on top of each other like twisted limbs. It looks like a bomb went off here; like we're witnessing the end of the world. And then we see a sign: New York City Housing Authority Slum Clearance. Cranes, and bulldozers, and wrecking balls dot the landscape. One day, this will all be Lincoln Center. For now, it's the turf of the Jets and the Sharks. And that turf is shrinking. No matter -- t...

Here's Why Movie Dialogue Has Gotten More Difficult To Understand (And Three Ways To Fix It)

I used to be able to understand 99% of the dialogue in Hollywood films. But over the past 10 years or so, I've noticed that percentage has dropped significantly -- and it's not due to hearing loss on my end. It's gotten to the point where I find myself occasionally not being able to parse entire lines of dialogue when I see a movie in a theater, and when I watch things at home, I've defaulted to turning the subtitles on to make sure I don't miss anything crucial to the plot.Knowing I'm not alone...

Hit-Monkey Composer Daniel Rojas On Music Themes, Industry Trends, And La La Land [Interview]

These past few years have been tremendously busy for rapidly rising composer Daniel Rojas.Between Netflix's "Kipo and the Age of Wonderbeasts" and the Hulu/Marvel one-two punch of "M.O.D.O.K." and "Hit-Monkey," Rojas has made the transition from commercials and short films to major feature films (he contributed to the soundtrack of 2015's Brie Larson-starring "Room," 2016's "Money Monster" and the Alexander Payne film "Downsizing" in 2017) and name-brand shows look impossibly easy. That's not to...

A 3-foot-long mammoth tusk hidden on the ocean floor could offer clues about the ancient creatures

Members of the science team at the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute observe the mammoth tusk.Darrin Schultz © 2021 MBARI Scientists discovered a 3-foot-long mammoth tusk roughly 10,000 feet below the ocean's surface. The deep sea is ideal for preserving remains, though mammoth fossils rarely wind up there. The tusk belongs to a young female mammoth. Scientists are using it for clues about how she lived. To the untrained eye, it may have looked like a giant wood log. In reality, sc...

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...

Everything We Know About The Tomb Raider Anime Series So Far

The first "Tomb Raider" video game, starring the gunslinging heroine Lara Croft, hit consoles in October 1996. Since then, "Tomb Raider" has become one of the bestselling video game franchises of all time, spawning three big-screen film adaptations (and another on the way) that have been met with mixed critical reception.This is no surprise as, with few exceptions, live-action film adaptations of video games have a reputation for being kind of ... not great. Maybe it's because making the transit...

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...

Kathleen Kennedy Renews Lucasfilm Contract Through 2024

Buckle up for this one, folks. You're not going to believe it, but sometimes -- read: most of the time -- the angry YouTubers are wrong. Despite a cottage industry of sorts springing up and revolving around YouTube accounts who have eagerly anticipated Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy's supposedly imminent firing for several years now, reports have come in that her contract has actually been renewed for another three years. If that seems surprising to some, consider that the longtime Hollywo...

Movies Like The Lord Of The Rings That Are Definitely Worth Watching

"The Lord of the Rings" trilogy is among the most perfect movie trilogies of all time. Against all odds, Peter Jackson's meticulous adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien's beloved trilogy of novels lived up to the significant hype, pleasing both fans of the books and complete newcomers. Tolkien spent years crafting the languages, characters, creatures, history, and mythology of Middle-earth, and Jackson showed a similar attention to detail when he brought the sprawling story to the big screen. The films ...

The 15 Best Movies About The Vietnam War

The Vietnam War had an unprecedented impact on the development of modern filmmaking. The war itself occurred during a downward spiral for major studios, as the luster of the "Golden Age of Hollywood" had depleted throughout the 1960s.The '70s saw the rise of a new generation of filmmakers. As the old system crumbled, studios began to take risks on younger filmmakers who revitalized the industry with their original voices.

Red Notice Review: Dwayne Johnson And Ryan Reynolds Bumble Through Netflix's Glossy, Lifeless Action Movie

What can $200 million get you these days? How about an ultra-glossy, ultra-derivate action-adventure designed solely to launch a franchise? Netflix reportedly paid a small fortune for "Red Notice," a new globe-hopping blockbuster featuring mega-stars Dwayne Johnson, Ryan Reynolds, and Gal Gadot, and they didn't get their money's worth. "Red Notice" is art by algorithm; a film that hasn't so much been made as it's been assembled, like a Frankenstein's monster, stitched together from other, better...

Why We'll Probably Never See A Feature-Length Love Actually Sequel

The Spine Of Night Creators Spill On Their Gorgeous, Gory Rotoscoped Epic [Interview]

There are a handful of rotoscoped fantasy classics that every nerd knew in the 1970s and '80s. Whether it was the rollicking rock and roll fantasy of "Heavy Metal" or the extended epics of the Rankin and Bass "Hobbit" or "Lord of the Rings" movies, the unique animation style implanted itself in our collective subconscious. Now there's a new rotoscoped fantasy epic destined to join the ranks, "The Spine of Night." "The Spine of Night" is a sprawling fantasy epic that ties together multiple storie...

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...

The Interesting True Story Behind The Dig

He's also the kind of filmmaker whose talents are undeniable -- go ahead, try to deny them. You can't!
