Every Steven Soderbergh Movie Ranked Worst To Best

Spend a considerable amount of time with Steven Soderbergh's films, and it's impossible not to develop a fondness for this difficult man. He was just 26 when he burst onto the scene in 1989 with his breakout feature "Sex, Lies, and Videotape." The auteur's fetishistic fixations and raw filmmaking style created an immediate sensation, and earned him the coveted Palme d'Or at Cannes.At that moment, Soderbergh could have done anything in Hollywood. Always the master of the unexpected, he went back ...

Jeremy Irons Hasn't Seen The Snyder Cut, Says 'It Couldn't Be Worse' Than Theatrical Cut

While "Zack Snyder's Justice League" may have been the Holy Grail for any rabid fan (emphasis on "rabid") who once tweeted #ReleaseTheSnyderCut, at least one of the film's supporting cast members is content to let it gather dust in his back closet or junk drawer or wherever an esteemed British actor keeps unwanted gifts. Jeremy Irons made his debut as Bruce Wayne's faithful butler and Batman ally, Alfred Pennyworth, in "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice." He reprised the role in "Justice League...

Jeremy Irons on Netflix’s ‘Munich’ and Why He Hasn’t Seen ‘The Snyder Cut’

Neville Chamberlain has endured a savage historical appraisement. He’s the prime minister who failed to stand up to Hitler. The politician who didn’t understand the existential threat posed by the fascist leader and his Nazi ideology. The man who bundled things so spectacularly with his policy of appeasement that Europe plunged into devastating conflict that […]

How Robin Williams Changed The Voice Acting Business As We Know It

If you have spent an unreasonable amount of time over the past two years stuck indoors with kids, you'll have no doubt watched a ridiculous amount of computer animated content on Netflix or other streaming services. There seems to be an unending supply of it, and even the most third-rate efforts have well-known names voicing characters (here's looking at you, Chevy Chase in "Doogal"). As a result, my wife and I spend much of the film's running time asking each other: "Who's doing the voice of th...

House of Gucci review – Lady Gaga steers a steely path through the madness

Gaga rules in Ridley Scott’s at times ridiculous drama based on the true-life sagas of the Italian fashion dynasty“The most Gucci of them all” is how Patrizia Reggiani described herself in a 2014 interview and, judging by this entertainingly ripe, comedically tinged tragedy, she has a point. Variously known as “Lady Gucci” and “Black Widow”, Reggiani became the centre of a very 1990s scandal involving lust, money, fashion, murder… and a clairvoyant. To that tabloid-friendly cocktail, Ridley Scot...

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.

Subgenres such as space westerns, spoofs, neo-noirs, an...

The 20 Best Dystopian Movies Of All Time

The differences between a dystopian story and an apocalyptic one are slight. It's common for a dystopia to set in after an apocalypse, and a dystopian world often hides its true nature, only revealing itself after subtle revelations pile up. H. G. Wells was one of the first writers to popularize dystopian fiction, with "The Sleeper Awakes" using what today's sci-fi fans may recognize as a Douglas Adams gag: A man falls into a coma and wakes up centuries later, his accrued financial interests mak...
