The 12 Best Video Game Movies Ranked

What should a great video game movie feel like? Should the "Final Fantasy" film mostly function like a playthrough with a bunch of extra cutscenes? Should plot developments be mostly fetch-quests? Films tell compelling stories, but an entire generation has been raised on video games, and they're used to feeling like they're participating in the plots of the media they consume, whether the project is based on a game or not. This, I would argue, is a quality the best video game movies share, no ma...

Why Star Wars Visions Isn't Canon ⁠— And Why Some Of It Should Be

"Star Wars: Visions" is the new animated series from Lucasfilm on Disney+. As an experiment in storytelling, Lucasfilm commissioned nine animated short films from seven different animation studios in Japan. Instead of shackling them to the "Star Wars" canon, Lucasfilm instead had them reimagine the stories of "Star Wars" through their own unique, cultural lenses. This freedom allowed the studios to create stories ranging from punk rock operas and Pinocchio stories about droids who want to be Jed...

Red Ledges: The Skiers' Community

“I hit my first hole in one yesterday,” Betsy Townsend said with a matter-of-fact nonchalance belying the rarity of the accomplishment. Her husband Jay—a retired professional golfer and current broadcaster with a slew of top-10 finishes on the European Tour—had a paltry three-ace advantage over the course of his entire career. As such with Jay standing alongside, it didn’t seem the appropriate time for such humility. But it wasn’t until pressed further by bewildered company that Betsy described ...

The 10 Best Western Movies Of The Past Decade Ranked

Steven Spielberg famously commented that the rise of superhero movies reminded him of the popularity of westerns, which has declined precipitously since the genre's heyday. And yet, ironically, westerns haven't taken a backseat in the past decade. If the mix of subversive and traditional western films over the past 10 years indicates anything, it's that the genre is always changing.Westerns are intertwined with the history of cinema itself, as exciting adventure stories set in the Old West were ...

Kevin Smith's Secret Stash Book Candidly Chronicles The Life And Career Of The Clerks Filmmaker

The voice of Kevin Smith is probably more prominently and frequently heard than any other filmmaker working today. Aside from becoming an influential writer/director thanks to his sensational Sundance-selected comedy "Clerks," the growth of geek culture, the popularity of comic books, and the rise of podcasting as a popular medium paved the way for Smith to become a pillar of pop culture.

The Blueprint Turns 20

I know multiple people who woke up one Tuesday morning, watched from windows or Brooklyn rooftops as the second plane hit and the World Trade Center fell, and then went out and bought The Blueprint. Jay-Z’s opus wasn’t supposed to come out on September 11, but Jay was worried about bootleggers — he was always worried about bootleggers — and so he moved up the album release a week. On that calamitous morning, when people didn’t know if New York was under attack or the world was ending or what, pe...

Oh Shit, Look At Idris Elba Rapping

Over the years, the way-too-handsome movie star Idris Elba has had a bunch of side hustles in music. He DJs in Ibiza whenever he can, he co-produced the intro track from Jay-Z’s American Gangster album, and every once in a while, he raps. (I liked him on the remix to Skepta’s “Shutdown.”) In a couple of weeks, the grime site GRM Daily will stage its virtual Rated Awards ceremony, and Elba will co-host with the model Jourdan Dunn. In the lead-up to the big event, Idris Elba is out here rapping. ...
