Every Ridley Scott Movie Ranked From Worst To Best

Since the late 1970s, Ridley Scott has been a more or less constant figure in cinema. From his early achievements in science fiction to his more recent ventures into epic historical filmmaking, he is a director perpetually on the move, making films at the speed of a man half his age. Despite these accomplishments and the outsized impact he's had on multiple genres, he remains one of the most prominent working filmmakers to have never received a best director award at the Oscars.That isn't to say...

Why Quentin Tarantino Has A Problem With Biopics

Biopics are generally a favorite of Hollywood and the Oscars because they tend to be actor showcases -- plus, as Variety mentioned in an article last year, they "can hopefully short-cut years of development that include endless notes about how the plot should change," because the events being depicted really happened (more or less). Kristen Stewart's take on Princess Diana in "Spencer" and Will Smith's performance in "King Richard" as Richard Williams, the confident and obsessive father of tenni...

Everything We Know About Londongrad So Far

Benedict Timothy Carlton Cumberbatch, a man with many names and one very specific face, has a new miniseries on the horizon, which shouldn't surprise any of you because this man loves a limited run television series. Besides 2018's "Patrick Melrose" and 2012's "Parade's End," you can't talk about Cumberbatch and miniseries without referencing the show that made Cumberbatch a household name, Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss' "Sherlock." This time, instead of dipping into a literary character, explor...

The 14 Best Michael Fassbender Movies Ranked

Michael Fassbender is one of the best actors working today, and though he's seemingly been off the radar since appearing in 2019's "X-Men: Dark Phoenix," the German-Irish star will be back in front of audiences soon with a series of exciting upcoming projects. Fassbender is set to headline David Fincher's assassin thriller "The Killer," Taika Waititi's inspirational sports comedy "Next Goal Wins," and the action comedy "Kung Fury 2" inspired by the viral internet short. None of these projects ar...

The Prometheus Scene That Seriously Scared The Cast

2022 marks the 10-year anniversary of "Prometheus," director Ridley Scott's return to the iconic "Alien" franchise that he'd helped launch 33 years earlier. As you can imagine, there was a lot of excitement around the project ahead of its arrival. Not only was Scott back at the helm of a sci-fi film for the first time since 1982's "Blade Runner," his "Alien" prequel was going to address two of the biggest questions that had been left unanswered since 1979: Who was the so-called Space Jockey that...

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...

Taika Waititi's Next Goal Wins Replaces Armie Hammer With Will Arnett

As those reading this are likely aware, "The Social Network" and "Call Me By Your Name" star Armie Hammer was hit with multiple allegations of sexual abuse and assault last year. This has already led the actor to vacate his role on "The Offer," a miniseries about the making of "The Godfather" moving forward at Paramount+. These unsettling allegations have also cast a dark cloud over a pair of films that Hammer worked on in 2019 but have yet to debut. The first of those movies, "Death on the Nile...

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 Alien Movie Ranked From Worst To Best

The Alien series is built around one of the greatest movie heroines of all time: Ellen Ripley, played by Sigourney Weaver. In the 2010s, "Alien" creator Ridley Scott, the alpha and omega of Alien directors, tried to fill Weaver's space boots with the likes of Noomi Rapace and Katherine Waterston. Their characters were like Ripley's surrogate daughters (as fans know, there's a precedent for one of those in Ripley's long and winding biography). And yet, more than 40 years after the debut of "Alien...

Netflix Film Chief Scott Stuber on David Fincher’s ‘The Killers,’ Bradley Cooper’s ‘Maestro’ and Dave Chappelle’s Next Stand-Up Specials

In Netflix’s upcoming assassin thriller “The Killers,” director David Fincher does what David Fincher does best — which is to say the filmmaker delves deep into the mind of the deeply disturbed. The film, starring Michael Fassbender as a cold-blooded hitman who suddenly develops a conscience, is the kind of tense, edge-of-your-seat character study that […]

The Best Keira Knightley Movies Ranked

Keira Knightley is the queen of the past — she is probably the one name most associated with period films over the last 20 years. In fact, it's easy to forget that Knightley is only 36, as she has both been acting for so long and also played brides in two movies ("Love Actually" and "Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl") while still aged just 17. While historical films, especially romantic ones, are very much Knightley's specialty, she has broken out into contemporary-set film...

Movies Like No Country For Old Men That You Really Need To Watch

There's an argument to be made that Joel and Ethan Coen are not only the most consistently interesting filmmakers of the past several decades, but have transcended any generational comparisons to rank among the greatest filmmakers of all time.

Ryan Gosling's Wolfman Movie Finds New Director In Derek Cianfrance

Ryan Gosling's "Wolfman" movie is not dead – it just has a new director.Deadline reports that Derek Cianfrance, who directed last year's HBO Mark Ruffalo-led drama series "I Know This Much is True," is currently in talks to step behind the camera and take over for original director Leigh Whannell ("Upgrade"), who left the movie over scheduling conflicts. Universal and Blumhouse are overseeing this new iteration of the classic Universal Monsters character, and it certainly sounds like Cianfrance ...

The 14 Greatest War Movies Of The 21st Century

The war movie has been around as long as movies themselves, and they make for an important historical document. Comparing WWII movies made during or just after that war with ones made 50 to 70 years later, with the benefit of hindsight, is a fascinating exercise. While the Second World War does dominate the war movies that are made to this day, lesser-known conflicts around the world and throughout history also make for compelling subjects. Hardly any of the war movies mentioned here feature big...

A Miniseries Is The Best Way To Finish Ridley Scott's Alien Prequel Story

It’s looking less and less likely that Ridley Scott will helm another Alien prequel, but fortunately, Alien: Covenant could still receive a follow-up in the form of a limited series. Despite starting strong, the Alien franchise has struggled to find its feet with critics over the last few decades. The original Alien, a brutal and brilliant “haunted house in space” sci-fi horror, and its more action-forward sequel Aliens are beloved by viewers and critics alike, often still held up as classics o...

The 10 Scariest Scenes From The Alien Franchise

Ridley Scott's "Alien" is a profound, seminal piece of science fiction and horror. In space, no one can truly hear you scream (per the first movie's official tagline), though just because it's unheard, it doesn't mean it's not there. With a profound scope, unmatched awe, gorgeous visuals, and bonafide body horror, the series is operatic, high-concept horror -- basically, a haunted house series set in space. With talented directors at the helm, the Alien series offers visions of a horrific future...

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,...

How To Watch The Alien Movies In Order

Ridley Scott's Xenomorph started its hunt with "Alien" in 1979, and though there have been some pauses between installments, we inevitably return to its bleak, Geiger-designed future again and again. With a new Alien series exploring amoral mega-corporation Weyland-Yutani on the way, it's worth studying how we got here. The timeline of the Alien franchise can be hard to follow, as Ridley Scott delved into the creation of the Xenomorphs decades after making the first movie. However, there are a f...
