Movies To Watch If You Loved Fast & Furious 9

As "F9" roared into theaters, viewers both casual and devoted feverishly caught up on the Fast & Furious franchise's oddly complex lore and timeline. But once you're finished with NOS, Coronas, and the overbearing themes of family, you may want to find other movies that maintain the adrenaline rush that the Fast & Furious movies provide."F9" is defined by its strange mix of genres, combining heist, spy, and car action to create the high reality that the Fast & Furious series thrives on.

The Surprising Origins Behind Rick And Morty's Catchphrase

"Rick and Morty" fans are known to be loyal and intense, often waiting patiently for years for new episodes of Adult Swim's edgy animated show to air. For many, their love of the show is imbedded in the strength of its comedic writing. This is understandable, with co-creators Dan Harmon (creator of "Community") and Justin Roiland at the helm. The comedy often bends genre tropes in on themselves to twist what's possible in an animated show, but even "Rick and Morty" can't escape one of the strong...

13 Movies Like The Wolf Of Wall Street That Are Definitely Worth Watching

"The Wolf of Wall Street" is one of the best films of the 21st century. Martin Scorsese has never lost his touch, but his biographical dark comedy quickly ranked among his finest work. Scorsese is no stranger to long runtimes, but crafting a three-hour black comedy that's consistently engaging is an amazing achievement.Scorsese set the all-time record for the most swearing in a film, and the movie's excessive sex, drugs, and general debauchery courted controversy throughout its release. Some Aca...

The Fascinating True Story Behind The Wolf Of Wall Street

It's a well-known fact that Martin Scorsese's acclaimed "The Wolf of Wall Street," which received five Oscar nominations including one for Best Adapted Screenplay, is based on the memoir of Jordan Belfort, the stockbroker played by Leonardo DiCaprio. He's not what you would call a hero: in fact, the whole movie is arguably told from the villain's perspective.Terence Winter handled the writing chores, and he and Scorsese had already framed an entire HBO series, "Boardwalk Empire," around a gangst...

13 Movies Like Shutter Island That You Really Need To See

Martin Scorsese's 2010 film "Shutter Island" was an exciting departure from the style that he's best known for. While he's made many different types of movies, Scorsese is best known for his crime dramas -- films like "Taxi Driver," "Raging Bull," "Goodfellas," and "Casino" are all considered classics.However, a psychological horror film with shocking plot twists was new territory for the beloved director. Scorsese had dabbled in horror themes with "Bringing Out the Dead" and "Cape Fear," but "S...

The 14 Greatest Biopics Of The 21st Century

The traditional biopic seems like it should be pretty easy to make. After all, the subject has already done all the hard work. You just need to pick the best bits of their lives and slap them up on the big screen, right? But that's where things start to get tricky. Do you recreate a list of chronological events that follow the subject from the cradle to grave, and hope that a classically-trained English actor can elevate the film beyond its fairly uninspired structure? Do hone in on one specific...

Why The Last Duel Is Matt Damon And Ben Affleck's First Script Together Since Good Will Hunting

"Good Will Hunting" helped launch Matt Damon and Ben Affleck into stardom, and won them a Best Original Screenplay Oscar in the process. But despite that success, the two haven't written a screenplay together in 25 years. That finally changed with "The Last Duel," the new Ridley Scott film Damon and Affleck wrote with Nicole Holofcener. Based on a true story, "The Last Duel" is set in France in the 1300s. Damon plays Jean de Carrouges, a knight who enters into a duel with his one-time friend Jac...

Why Is a Post on “Moneyball” vs. “Trouble with the Curve” Still Getting Attention?

Over the last few months, a surprising number of viewers have been reading my post on two related movies, “Moneyball (2011)” and “Trouble with the Curve (2012).” With the majority of my blog readers between 18 and 34, I initially decided that the key to their interest now was my early assessment of artificial intelligence. At the time my readers and I were just getting introduced to artificial intelligence. It also turns out that nearly ten years later my conclusion regarding how artificial inte...

The 10 Best Margot Robbie Movies Ranked

Be honest: Did you underestimate Margot Robbie at first? The Australian actress first garnered international attention for the trailer to 2013's "The Wolf of Wall Street," a Kanye-scored masterpiece that sold Robbie's character, Naomi Lapagila, as pure eye candy. That got the internet's curiosity. But Martin Scorsese's classic didn't reduce Lapagila to a bombshell trophy wife, thanks largely to Robbie's incendiary performance. With Robbie at the helm, Lapagila was an interesting, dynamic, and fu...

Who Is the Best Actor in Martin Scorsese’s The Departed?

Martin Scorsese’s Academy Award-winning crime drama The Departed turns 15 this week, people. Looking back on the flick, I’m still amazed at its ability to entertain, dazzle, thrill, and shock audiences.

Every Danny Boyle Film Ranked From Worst To Best

Since beginning his directorial career in the early '90s, Danny Boyle has become one of the most famous and reliable filmmakers of his generation. Although some of his most successful films have a clear sentimental streak, plucking the heartstrings of the audience like a well-tuned guitar, his work has been surprisingly varied. And what's incredibly striking when looking at Boyle's filmography is that there's not a huge amount of daylight between his worst films and his best films. To be honest,...

13 Tarantino Projects We Never Saw But Wish We Could've

Quentin Tarantino is one of the most influential American filmmakers of all time.

At the time, it was rare for a self-financed film to reach mainstream audiences, but following an energetic response at the Sundance Film Festival, "Reservoir Dogs" was acquired by ...

Other Ryan Reynolds Movies You Should Watch After Free Guy

Sure. Numbing? That too. It's hard to shake the sense that we've already seen everything that theaters have to offer, given that we got our first glimpses of "Black Widow" and "F9" more than a year a half ago. So, in this strange season, what does it take to renew a moviegoer's excitement?
