The 15 Best Odd Couples In Television History

Unusual duos are always a blast — there's something exciting about two very different people who manage to have a deep friendship. It's also the foundation for a lot of friction, which is the heart of good storytelling. Over the years there have been dozens of television odd couples. One series, "The Odd Couple," took the trope to extremes in 1970, following the adventures of Felix and Oscar, two recently divorced men forced to live together. The HBO series "Succession" has given us a new terrib...

Legendary Video Game Developer Hideo Kojima May Be Making A Movie Or TV Show

Just days after legendary video game developer Hideo Kojima announced that Kojima Productions was expanding to open a film, television, and music division in Los Angeles, he started teasing a new project on Twitter, saying "Recently, I've been revising the plan and script, and experimenting with everything else." Granted, this could always be the script for a new game, but the tweet coming so soon after the new department announcement has many speculating that Kojima is finally going to make a m...

Hugh Dancy To Investigate Killers, Try Not To Fall In Love With Them, In Law & Order Revival

How is Hugh Dancy supposed to solve homicides without his murder husband? According to Deadline, Dancy -- who played FBI consultant Will Graham in the NBC series "Hannibal," opposite Mads Mikkelsen's titular cannibal -- has been tapped to star in the "Law & Order" revival, which is also happening at NBC. Here's hoping that his character in the long-running procedural is better at catching criminals than catching feelings for them.It's been a decade since "Law & Order" went off the air, ending wi...

14 Shows Like Dexter That Will Get Your Blood Pumping

The serial killer genre isn't for everyone, but there's something special about it that sets it apart from siblings like horror, thrillers, or true crime. The critically acclaimed and hugely popular Showtime series "Dexter" followed serial killer Michael C. Hall as Dexter Morgan, who worked as a forensic scientist for the Miami police by day while trying to control his deadly compulsions by night. Dexter's strict ethical code, which only permitted him to murder "bad guys," allowed him to satisfy...

Kaylee Dugan's Favorite Movies Of All Time

Hello /Film friends! I don't know what made you click on this article but I'm simultaneously glad you did and I'm also terrified you'll find a way to bully me online. This might sound ridiculous, but even though I've been writing about movies (and food, art, music and all other sorts of cultural joys) for almost a decade, I still have to imagine the internet as a black void where no one can actually read my content.

The 12 Best Characters In No Time To Die Ranked

I'm not a huge Bond person. I have a passing knowledge of the lore, and sit somewhere comfortably between a luddite and an aficionado. Not to state the obvious British stereotype, but the more recent Daniel Craig films are a little stoic and dry for me, despite the occasional campy villain turn from loose cannon actors like Mads Mikkelsen and Christof Waltz. But pretty much all of the characters in "No Time to Die" won me over. They have the range. They're funny without being quippy. They have l...

The 14 Greatest Thrillers Of The 21st Century

The thriller is one of the hardest genres to define, because thrillers cross over so much with other genres. From the erotic thriller, the psychological thriller, the cold war thriller, the detective thriller, and all the way through to the action thriller — and let's not forget to take a detour into the seedy underbelly of the neo-noir -- this really is the genre that has something for everyone. While the '80s and '90s were a heyday for erotic thrillers, the 21st century brought a fresh injecti...

Why Casino Royale Is The Best James Bond Movie

The twenty-fifth canonical James Bond adventure, "No Time to Die," brings an end to the Daniel Craig era of Bond, which has had its ups and downs, like any other era. At its best, the Craig movies have excelled at wringing character drama out of the long-running action franchise. It all started with "Casino Royale" in 2006.15 years and five movies later, "Casino Royale" remains an unequivocal franchise high. It added just the right dash of physicality and vulnerability to the Bond character, sho...

No Time to Die Review: Daniel Craig Thrills in Farewell James Bond Film

Nearly two years after its initial planned release date and a surplus of “well, I guess there’s PLENTY of time to die!” jokes later, we have No Time to Die, an action spy film directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga. This film serves as the 25th installment in Eon’s long-running James Bond franchise. Daniel Craig’s fifth and final outing as the eponymous spy was a long time coming.

Movies To Watch If You Loved The Green Knight

The pandemic kept fans from seeing "The Green Knight" for well over a year after its planned premiere at the 2020 SXSW Film Festival was canceled. And now, filmmaker David Lowery's distinctive, striking take on the tale of Sir Gawain belongs to the fans. Though it presents Arthurian legend in a light that feels fresh and exciting, "The Green Knight" is by no means the first film to take a crack at bringing the fabled mythology to the big screen -- nor is it the first time that the ace filmmaking...

Riders of Justice review – Mads Mikkelsen revenge thriller turns screwball

Anders Thomas Jensen’s film is far-fetched, tonally wayward and shouldn’t work at all, but somehow it all comes togetherThe poster image of a grey-bearded, shaven-headed, tooled-up, mean-looking Mads Mikkelsen, combined with that title, might set alarm bells ringing … along the lines of, “Oh no, he’s doing a Taken.” Blessedly, rather than giving us a straightahead middle-aged revenge thriller, this unpredictable Danish film takes apart the whole trope. There are action thrills, to be sure, but t...
