The Real Life Inspiration Behind Forrest Gump

"Forrest Gump" famously inserted Tom Hanks into old archival footage, interweaving moments from real U.S. history with the fictional story of his character: A simple yet sincere man, sharing homespun wisdom on a park bench to different strangers while recounting the story of his ever-so-charmed life.Director Robert Zemeckis and ILM (Industrial Light & Magic) employed digital compositing and other groundbreaking visual effects to give Forrest's tale a true-to-life veneer. Thanks to the wonders of...

Movies To Watch If You Loved A Quiet Place: Part II

"A Quiet Place: Part II" is a terrifying, post-apocalyptic creature-feature that centers on family, resilience, and love. Starring the first movie's core cast -- including Emily Blunt, Noah Jupe, and Millicent Simmonds -- while expanding the scope of its world and characters, Part II wisely replicates what worked so well the first time while doubling down on the series' core conceit: To stay alive, its characters must remain silent. In the world of "A Quiet Place: Part II," silence equals surviv...

Impeachment Review: American Crime Story Turns The Clinton-Lewinsky Scandal Into Addictive, Uncomfortable TV

"He's going to have to resign." That's a sentence multiple people say on different occasions in "Impeachment: American Crime Story," the latest entry in the anthology series that began with "The People vs. O.J. Simpson," and continued with "The Assassination of Gianni Versace." Those previous two seasons dealt with murders as the inciting action, but the deaths in "Impeachment" are metaphorical deaths by a thousand cuts, where people are mercilessly pilloried in the press and the court of public...

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...

‘Werewolves Within’ Director Josh Ruben Explains Why ‘Arachnophobia’ is His Touchstone Film [Interview]

‘Monsters at Work’ Review: Pixar’s Disney+ Series Aims for Laughs, But Has a Tough Time Matching Wits with ‘Monsters Inc.’

Monsters Inc. stands as one of Pixar’s best examples of taking the societal norms of the real world and turning them into a clever, mesmerizing, and imaginative setting that has a story full of humor and heart. Unfortunately, Monsters at Work and the fictional company at the center of the new series on Disney+ are both under new management. If the city of Monstropolis is relying on the power of laughter to run their city, Monsters at Work may result in rolling blackouts with only polite laughte...

Next up to be rebooted is…*spins wheel*…The Borrowers. Because sure, why not?

5 Unexpected Funeral Expenses You Should Prepare For

One of the final scenes of my favorite movie The Big Lebowski features John Goodman’s and Jeff Bridges’ characters arguing with a funeral director over the cost of their friend Donny’s funeral. At one point, John Goodman (who plays a constantly angry character) shouts, “Look, just because we’re bereaved doesn’t make us SAPS!” After having recently gone through a family funeral of my own, I find myself more sympathetic toward the character’s outrage. When it comes to funeral expenses, it can see...
