All The Hawkeye Easter Eggs You Might Have Missed In The First Two Episodes

The first two episodes of "Hawkeye" are streaming now on Disney+, and just like every other project in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, there are plenty of Easter eggs to behold. Since much of the show's underlying villainous plot is still kept under wraps, some of these Easter eggs just might hint at what "Hawkeye" is setting up for the future of the MCU. While one theory ties into the reveal of Kang the Conqueror at the end of "Loki," another theory speculates about the possibility of bringing i...

Every Francis Ford Coppola Feature Ranked From Worst To Best

Out of all the New Hollywood directors to launch their careers in the late 1960s and early 1970s, Francis Ford Coppola is without a doubt one of the most famous. This is partially a result of his string of hits throughout the 1970s, many of which are serious contenders in any conversation about the best films ever made. But when you talk about Francis Ford Coppola, you also have to discuss the veritable film dynasty he would become the head of — it's sort of like "The Godfather," only with a bun...

Movies Like Heat That Are Definitely Worth Watching

When director Michael Mann was cutting the iconic downtown LA shootout for his blue-hued 1995 neo-noir masterpiece "Heat," he initially set the scene to a foley mix of faux gunfire. But it just wasn't right. He swapped out the track for sound captured on location. "We shot with full-load blanks," the auteur told Vulture. "We were in these glass and steel canyons and the gunfire reverberated in a certain real way, so they had an authenticity to the place that really was unique."Mann has claimed t...

Movies Like No Country For Old Men That You Really Need To Watch

There's an argument to be made that Joel and Ethan Coen are not only the most consistently interesting filmmakers of the past several decades, but have transcended any generational comparisons to rank among the greatest filmmakers of all time. Across 18 films, the Coens have created countless memorable characters, reinvigorated old genres, experimented with musical selections, and invented dialogue that is still quoted by film buffs.The Coens began their career with the low budget neo-noir thril...

The Coen Brothers Movies Ranked Worst To Best

There's no one working in cinema today with both the range and skill level of Joel and Ethan Coen. To find any good point of comparison, one would have to look back as far as the Hollywood studio era, far before the concept of an "auteur" assigned any kind of traceable artistry to the director's chair. No two movies they have ever made are the same, even when they contain similar genre trappings or share a general disposition toward the world. Across comedies, dramas, westerns, thrillers, myster...

Movies Like Pineapple Express That You Should Watch ASAP

"Pineapple Express" is one of the funniest films of the 21st century and an essential watch for fans of the Apatow generation, which grew up loving the work of Seth Rogen and James Franco. Rogen and Franco had worked together first in "Freaks and Geeks," and their comedic partnership continued throughout the following decades, often yielding unexpected results: The pair nearly started an international crisis with "The Interview," for instance, and produced a genuinely heartfelt award season cont...

The 20 Best Western Movie Actors Ranked

The Western movie genre relies on the presence of memorable characters. Early Westerns presented clear-cut morals with instantly identifiable heroes and villains, as the genre first began to emerge in the early 20th century within silent film reels. While these Westerns were characterized by their more traditional depictions of mercenaries, lawmen, and bounty hunters, the genre later became diversified through the influence of other genres. Subgenres such as space westerns, spoofs, neo-noirs, an...

How Jeff Bridges Changed Crazy Heart Director Scott Cooper's Life [Exclusive]

Talk to anyone who has worked with Jeff Bridges throughout the many decades of his career and you'll find that the star of "The Big Lebowski" and "TRON" is one of the nicest people in show business. That goes double for "Crazy Heart" director Scott Cooper, who credits Jeff Bridges with changing his entire life. Not only does Bridges have an infectious spirit of love and joy, but he reconnected with music while making the movie, and being a witness to that had a great impact on Cooper. "I Wrote '...

Antlers Director Scott Cooper Keeps On Making Different Kinds Monster Movies [Interview]

Filmmaker Scott Cooper's voice is loud and clear in "Antlers." It's a grim horror tale, based on "The Quiet Boy" by Nick Antosca and produced by Guillermo del Toro. Cooper's film is as much about addiction as it is about the presence of the wendigo. The director behind "Crazy Heart" and "Hostiles" brings his eye and taste for drama to the long-awaited "Antlers." As he said to us, "It works to some degree on levels, better than others."It is a horror movie, like Cooper's other films, specifically...

Jason Momoa's Videos About Making 'Dune' in Jordan are Must See

"We went and found all these nooks & crannies… Really just got the feeling of being alone, and being out there…" Now playing in theaters worldwide is the epic, incredible Dune, directed by Denis Villeneuve. Actor Jason Momoa stars in the movie as Duncan Idaho, one of the most loyal members of House Atreides and a serious fighter. Much of the film was shot on location, or with practical sets, and most of the desert scenes were filmed in a location called Wadi Rum in the country of Jordan (whi...

Joss Whedon Wanted Zooey Deschanel To Play The Wasp In An Early Draft Of The Avengers

"The Story of Marvel Studios" is a book littered with behind-the-scenes details about the formation of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It's easy to take the whole shared-universe movie conceit for granted now that it's been done in the MCU, but back in the late 2000s and early 2010s, this was still a relatively new, novel idea. At that time, the concept of having five superhero films cross over into one big team-up remained untested on the big screen. However, that's exactly what "The Avengers" d...

Movies Like Dazed And Confused That Comedy Fans Will Love

When "Dazed and Confused" came out in September 1993, it barely made an impact, commercially or critically. It cost about $7 million to make and earned $8 million back -- that's not exactly a bomb, but certainly a disappointment. But over the course of the next few years, it would slowly grow in estimation until it became what it is today, a coming-of-age cult classic and one of the most highly regarded high school films of all time. "Dazed and Confused" takes place on the last day of the 1976 s...

Every Terry Gilliam Movie Ranked Worst To Best

Terry Gilliam was always the odd man out in Monty Python -- he was the only American, he wasn't Oxbridge educated, and he was an animator, not a comedy writer. He did, however, find his directing feet with the troupe, co-directing "Monty Python and the Holy Grail." He would also go on to cast Michael Palin and Eric Idle in many of his projects. In Gilliam's first "solo" film, "Jabberwocky," the Python influence was clear, but it would become less so as he branched further into flights of fancy a...

Single-Season '80s Sci-Fi And Fantasy Shows That Deserve A Second Shot

The '80s were the decade when KITT prowled the streets and Airwolf patrolled the skies, when a school teacher stepped up to serve as the greatest American hero, and when a government scientist took his first quantum leap back in time to put right what once went wrong.But '80s television also boasted legions of less-watched stealth superheroes: phoenixes and probing prodigies and extraterrestrial ex-cons, wizards and warriors, manimals and automen, and voyagers to other worlds.

Ranking Every Jon Favreau Movie From Worst To Best

Jon Favreau has been a multi-talented Swiss Army Knife for his whole career, even if most know him only as a comedic actor. He started in the improvisation and comedy clubs of Chicago before finding his big break in Los Angeles. His first screenplay was for the movie "Swingers," which came out in 1996 and was a big success; Favreau also starred in the film, and it's on that set that he met his long-time friend Vince Vaughn, with whom he went on to collaborate frequently. He's also known for play...

The 14 Best Comedies You Can Watch On Netflix Right Now

There's room for criticism when it comes to the curation of Netflix's library. The popular streaming service seems to deny the existence of films released before 1970, for example, and as the company invests more and more money into original content, it has slowly begun to neglect other areas. But not comedy. Other genres aren't particularly well represented on the service, but comedy is alive and well on Netflix, with a multitude of different subgenres at the viewer's fingertips. Brutal satires...

The 20 Best Heist Movies Of All Time

Heist movies transcend genre. You can have frivolous, fun heist movies like "The Italian Job," or heartfelt, straight-faced ones like "Point Break." The heist itself can be meticulously planned and meditative, like the one in "Inside Man," or fall apart before it's even begun, as in "Good Time."To be clear, this is a list of heist films, not movies about con artists. "The Sting," "The Brothers Bloom," and "Gambit" are all brilliant, but the heist tropes -- planning the mission, gathering the tea...

20 Movies About Aliens That You Definitely Need To Watch

Films with aliens are rarely about the aliens themselves. These interstellar visitors usually serve as metaphors for human nature, a reflection of our politics, or a means to discuss strange natural phenomena. As Stephen King explained in "Danse Macabre," his non-fiction exploration of the horror genre, the things that frighten or confuse us change shape with each generation. The aliens of the '50s and '60s were Cold War relics that played on social paranoia. The aliens of the '80s reflected con...

The 10 Greatest John Carpenter Characters Ranked

Over the course of a filmmaking career that's spanned five decades, director John Carpenter has created some of the most memorable monsters in the history of cinema, including Michael Myers in "Halloween" in 1978 and the Thing in 1982. But Carpenter also has a knack for well-crafted characters, which makes sense when you consider that, much like Orson Welles and his Mercury Theatre company of players, Carpenter tends to draw from the same stable of actors for much of his casting.As much as Carpe...
