Why Steven Spielberg Didn't Use Subtitles For The Spanish-Language Scenes In West Side Story

"Why remake a classic?" Every time word comes in of a new remake of a movie that everyone loved the first time around, inevitably the question turns to who this is ostensibly for. Only a brash and arrogant director, the narrative goes, would have enough of an ego to assume that they could possibly improve on perfection. Of course, the response to Steven Spielberg, of all directors, choosing "West Side Story" as his next film was markedly different from what it might have been otherwise in lesser...

Everything We Know About The Queer As Folk Reboot So Far

It's time to get ready to head back to Babylon! "Queer as Folk" is coming back (hopefully) better than ever. Initially, a British TV show created by Russell T. Davies (mostly known for his "Doctor Who" fame, but who should always be remembered for his remarkable work on "Casanova" that left teenage me smitten with David Tennant years before I knew what a Dalek even was), "Queer as Folk" was eventually adapted for American audiences and became a long-running series on Showtime. The American versi...

Why Biopics Are Bad For Acting

From the moment it was first revealed that Nicole Kidman would be playing the iconic comedic figure Lucille Ball in an upcoming biopic, people had strong emotions on the subject. Aaron Sorkin's "Being the Ricardos" stars Kidman and Javier Bardem as Ball and husband Desi Arnaz, the faces of the iconic series "I Love Lucy," as they navigate their personal and professional lives. Kidman was all wrong for Lucy, so it was said: she doesn't have the comedic timing of Ball or her famously elastic face;...

Daniel Radcliffe Has A 'Very Strange Relationship' With Robert Pattinson

Danielle Radcliffe and Robert Pattinson rose to fame as the stars of the two biggest YA franchises of the early 2000's: once upon a time, they were The Boy Who Lived and the Vampire Who Sparkles. Given the way their enormous franchises rivaled each other in popularity at around the same time, it's easy to see all that they have in common and assume the pair are lifelong friends. They even shared the spotlight, for a time! Before he was brooding in the blue-tinted frames of "Twilight," Pattinson ...

Every Michael Bay Movie, Ranked

Auteur theory is the idea that directors are the authors of their films, resulting in identifiable styles and themes from movie to movie. It was originally applied to filmmakers like Alfred Hitchcock and Jerry Lewis -- don't laugh, it's true --  and is used today to describe the works of Wes Anderson and Quentin Tarantino. If we're being honest, though, it should just as frequently be applied to Michael Bay.Watch any single minute of a Bay movie and it's instantly recognizable as the work of a s...

The 14 Scariest Mythological Monsters In Horror Movies

Movie monsters are mythic in their own right. The tales of Michael Myers and Pennywise the Clown are no different, both in form and narrative structure, than the legends of yore. They are modern parallels to Medusa and Hades, mythic monsters with penchants for death and destruction. Horror movies in particular are defined by their monsters. Decades of "Halloween" sequels prove as much; even when the movie flounders, the monster endures.While new monsters are stellar, it's always exceptionally ex...

Here's When You Can Watch Spencer At Home

Pablo Larraín's "Spencer" is a haunting fable that documents Princess Diana's inner turmoil unlike anything I've seen before. Kristen Stewart plays her most challenging role yet with such ease, it's hard to fully believe it's her. From the very onset of the movie, Stewart effortlessly establishes the disconnect between Diana and the rest of the family, detailing just how removed she is from them, with the exception of her sons.It has been nearly 25 years since her death, but Princess Diana has r...

Ridley Scott Has Words About The Gucci Family Response To House Of Gucci: 'You Should Be So F***ing Lucky'

Director Ridley Scott continues to offer up the choicest sound bites with some real, well, bite to them. First, he blamed the race of "millennian" aliens for the recent box-office failure of his film, "The Last Duel." Now, he's targeting the Gucci family, who were not enamored of his portrayal of them in his latest movie, "House of Gucci."To be clear, Scott wasn't really talking about aliens in relation to "The Last Duel," which is now available to own on digital platforms. He was just referenci...

The Coen Brothers Movies You Didn't Realize Were Part Of A Trilogy

It might seem like all of Joel and Ethan Coen's special and specific ragtag characters belong in the same universe — the TCBU, if you will — but the brothers previously refuted that theory. However, one thing you may not know is that they did confirm that four of their films (yes, four) are part of a special trilogy called the Numbskull Trilogy. How's that for some film trivia?The four entries in the Numbskull Trilogy include 2000's "O Brother, Where Art Thou?", 2003's "Intolerable Cruelty," 200...

Kristen Stewart Reacts To The Spencer Oscar Buzz

Note: This article was originally published with the headline "Kristen Stewart Doesn't Care About The Spencer Oscar Buzz," based on Variety's own reporting that the actress responded to a question about Oscars buzz by saying, "I don't give a s***." Though she did say that, she did so in a jokey tone and later said she was "stoked" to be in contention for an Academy Award.

Kristen Stewart Doesn't Care About The Spencer Oscar Buzz

Kristen Stewart has come a long way since playing Bella Swan in the "Twilight" movies. The actress recently starred in the oceanic thriller "Underwater" and the lesbian Christmas rom-com "Happiest Season," plus she's making moves behind the camera on her first feature, "The Chronology of Water," and she's developing a gay ghost-hunting show. Somehow, Stewart also somehow found the time to star in "Spencer," Pablo Larraín's haunting glimpse into the private life of Princess Diana. Stewart's perfo...

Nearly 22% Of People We Polled Think This Is Vin Diesel's Worst Movie

(Welcome to Survey Says, a feature where we conduct a movie-related survey for a random group of people and explain why they're completely right, completely wrong, or somewhere in-between.)Say what you may about Vin Diesel, but the actor has had a fascinating career, and the man has made an awful lot out of the tools he has at his disposal. He's a brooding guy with a deep voice and could have easily been typecast, or relegated to a sad career doing home-video action flicks. Instead, he's managed...

Kristen Stewart Nabs Small Part In Olivier Assayas' Irma Vep Series For HBO

Kristen Stewart and Olivier Assayas: together again. Stewart, who appeared in the Assayas films "Clouds of Sils Maria" and "Personal Shopper," will reunite with the filmmaker in the upcoming "Irma Vep" TV adaptation. We don't know who Stewart is playing, and her role is reportedly "small," so don't expect anything too elaborate. Still, news of Stewart and Assayas getting together again is worth reporting. The series, which is coming from A24 and HBO, is based on Assayas' 1996 film of the same na...

Kristen Stewart Is Developing A Gay Ghost-Hunting Reality Show

Since the "Twilight" film franchise ended in 2021, it's seemed like stars Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart have been in competition to see who can separate themselves the furthest from their teenage vampire movie roots. Both take on challenging, unconventional roles, cementing themselves as performers with range and incredible skill. Stewart has been especially busy, portraying the tragic Princess Diana in "Spencer," which has been described as more of a ghost story than a traditional biopic...

The 15 Best Films About British Royalty

There's something about the monarchy in Great Britain that has always made for tremendously dramatic cinematic material. No matter how much we try to proclaim our distaste for the institution (that it's an essentially parasitic power structure feeding off the British people, that it churns out emotionally damaged individuals who consider themselves above the law, that is has no business even existing in a modern society -- take your pick), we are endlessly fascinated by the royals' exploits.Whet...

Spencer Ending Explained: The Haunting Of Princess Diana

Pablo Larraín's "Spencer" quickly dispels any expectations of a conventional biopic. Before a single character can appear onscreen, the film introduces itself as "a fable from a true tragedy," then paints a portrait loosely based on life, but mostly soaked in emotion, and submerged in the perspective of Kristen Stewart's Princess Diana. Over the course of three days, the Princess of Wales is tormented by royal tradition and stifled in the ornate halls of Sandringham Estate: it's Christmas in 199...

"Did she really clear the room of staff by saying she wished to masturbate, or was it the cheddar and crackers I foolishly had before bed?"

"This is a total cheese dream of a film —did she really just eat a pearl? — but also it’s a riveting one as well as a thrillingly entertaining one. Plus it all somehow feels true even if it isn’t. Broken woman, unfeeling family. That seems about right.... It is billed as ‘a fable from a true tragedy,’ whatever that might mean, and Diana’s marriage to Charles is irrevocably on the rocks but the family still imagine she can be brought to heel.... Sandringham, with its endlessly long corridors, is ...

Kristen Stewart makes Diana a horror film heroine

Until "Spencer," Emma Corrin's portrayal in The Crown was arguably the best reimagining of Princess Diana to date. The eyes flickering under that canopy fringe, and her beautifully calibrated evolution from "mad tree" to the most beloved woman in the world felt note-perfect.

'Spencer' lets Kristen Stewart show a horror film version of Princess Diana's story

'Spencer' is a horror film, and it wants you to know it, says Holly Thomas -- its imagery as Princess Diana approaches a doomed royal holiday in the 1990s is redolent of 'Psycho' or 'The Shining.' Thomas argues it's a potent, if fantastical, depiction.
