From ‘Tammy Faye’ to ‘Tick, Tick…Boom!’, Famed Female Figures Debunk Societal Stereotypes

In 2021, the ways in which women can define themselves, their identities and their successes is more complex and diverse than ever before, but tradition — and the expectation of adherence to that tradition — continues to exert a powerful influence on how easily or confidently these individuals navigate the spaces they’re creating for themselves.

5 Marvel Characters We'd Love To See Matthew McConaughey Play

The Marvel Cinematic Universe has plenty of Academy Award-winning actors on their payroll — from Angelina Jolie (Thena) to Lupita Nyong'o (Nakia), Anthony Hopkins (Odin), and Natalie Portman (Jane Foster), among others. The film franchise continually grows and brings new comic book characters to life each time. Recently, joining a comic book film universe has been somewhat controversial. But it shouldn't be. From Timothée Chalamet to Emily Blunt, many A-list actors have shared their aversion tow...

Every Simon Kinberg Script, Ranked Worst To Best

A review of Simon Kinberg's "The 355" went viral this past week. Beyond being a scathing critique of the thriller Universal left for dead in theaters, the Letterboxd post was an indictment of Film Twitter's current state, eviscerating the speed with impassioned thirty-something cinephiles like myself will rush to defend 2000's era flops like "Josey & The Pussycats" or "Jennifer's Body." (Both good!) And given that Kinberg was the author of many 2000's era smashes, from his breakout "Mr & Mrs. Sm...

Contenders: A Look at How Makeup and Hairstylists Worked on Transforming Leading Actors

This year is all about transformations. Stellan Skarsgard in “Dune,” Jared Leto in “House of Gucci” and Jessica Chastain in “The Eyes of Tammy Faye” all required hours in the makeup chair and daily application of prosthetics for their roles.

The SAG Awards Snubbed The Best Performance Of The Year

Every year, there is an awards snub that cuts to the heart of who we are as human beings, and lays bare our deepest impulses to decry the "Academy" and whatever horse the lot of them rode in on. Truly, it happens every year. This year, it just so happened to be the one no one expected: the princess herself, Kristen Stewart.Stewart's critically hailed performance as Princess Diana in Pablo Larraín's "Spencer" was curiously shut out of the Best Actress race for the Screen Actors Guild Awards, acco...

The 12 Best January Horror Releases Of All Time, Ranked

January horror releases have a bad rap. The reputation is undeserved, though not entirely unfounded. According to Business Insider, there's a host of factors that have resulted in January being the colloquial "dumping month" for studio releases. Fear of competing with awards contenders, holiday fatigue, and even inclement winter weather are several reasons that studios opt to "dump" less-than-stellar releases in January, hoping to recoup something in a month with little to offer.Yet, the trend i...

The 355 Bombs At The Box Office While Spider-Man Continues To Thrive, And That's Concerning

January is, historically speaking, not the greatest month at the box office. However, before the pandemic destroyed everything, studios were starting to turn the month into fertile ground, with movies like "Bad Boys for Life" finding a path to becoming hits during a month when there was little else in the way of major competition. Unfortunately, the pandemic has changed things and we officially have our first big box office bomb of 2022 in the form of "The 355." The new female-led action flick l...

The 355 Review: A Generic Start To 2022

"The 355" is the cinematic equivalent of Hydrox. It's a bland and generic retread of something that's well-liked, if not beloved, something that feels vaguely like the real thing. Early January releases are usually a sign of concern, but perhaps the best possible news about "The 355" is that it's not terrible -- it's far too indistinct to be that aggressively bad. Instead, this has the general feeling of being a movie without actually being a particularly memorable one.First-Friday-of-the-year r...

It’s not usually a good idea to grade a movie on the curve of when it’s released. But in the case of “The 355,” one is tempted to make an exception and say: For a first-week-of-January thriller, it isn’t bad. Early January tends to be a dumping ground, because the prestige awards contenders are still […]

Every Aaron Sorkin Movie Ranked Worst To Best

One of the most prolific screenwriters in film and television, Aaron Sorkin has a clear and distinctive voice that is impossible to miss. His work is nonetheless surprisingly divisive: Some consider him a genius, while others have heard his "one egg is un oeuf" joke way too many times to be impressed. But regardless of whether you find his unique affectations endearing or self-indulgent, his impact over the past few decades is undeniable.Having begun his career as a playwright, with 1989's "A Fe...

Every Terrence Malick Movie Ranked From Worst To Best

Once a decade or so, Terrence Malick would crawl out of whatever primordial netherworld that nourishes his mind and make a movie. After his stunning sophomore effort, 1978's "Days of Heaven," the auteur vanished for 20 years. When he returned in 1998, he delivered another ethereal classic, "The Thin Red Line."So grew Malick's legend. But as he's entered his later years, the spirit has really moved him. After 2011's "The Tree of Life," Malick became unexpectedly prolific, adding numerous shorts a...

Every Guillermo Del Toro Movie Ranked

Guillermo del Toro is one of the best filmmakers working today, a storyteller -- perhaps the only contemporary storyteller -- capable of pulling the metaphorical sword from the stone. He wields a filmic Excalibur, and even his weaker films (comparatively speaking) remain some of the best genre entries ever made. He delivers on all fronts, directing, writing, and producing the sort of films virtually no one else is making. He co-wrote Peter Jackson's "The Hobbit" trilogy, produced several of the ...

Upcoming Action Movies To Keep On Your Radar

Superhero movies haven't killed action films the way video did the radio star dirty, but they have boxed them out as the genre entertainment of choice for audiences seeking high-octane thrills and spectacle. And even most of the action franchises that have continued to thrive over the last decade, like "Fast & Furious," have evolved in such a way that they're practically superhero films in their own right now. Heck, there was a whole running joke in "F9: The Fast Saga" about how invulnerable the...
