CS Soapbox: Why Daredevil in Spider-Man 3 is More Exciting Than Tobey ALOT of hype surrounds the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s follow-up to  Spider-Man Far From Home .

The Little Things Review – Rework of ’90s Cop Films Minus Purpose

John Lee Hancock is a very particular niche, and with the possible exception of The Alamo, he’s proven himself as the director you want for putting a particular character under the microscope. The Rookie might not have been a great film, but it was an uplifting dissection that won audiences over. The Blind Side may have ultimately caught some serious backlash, but it took you into a certain world and was, no matter the flaws it may have had, rather gripping. The Founder, obviously buoyed to a gr...

Joel Kinnaman Explains Where RoboCop Remake Went Wrong

Joel Kinnaman Explains Where RoboCop Remake Went Wrong Once upon a time, we got a remake of RoboCop starring Joel Kinnaman, Gary Oldman, Samuel L. Jackson and Michael Keaton… and the results were, let’s just say, mixed at best. The film looked great but lacked the edge of the original 1987 classic. In a recent interview with The Playlist Podcast, Kinnaman revealed where he felt the reboot went wrong. “I had to quell all my instincts for everything over the course of that film,” Kinnaman said...

News Post: Flash Photography

Tycho: Michael Keaton returning to the role of Batman after passing through a metaphorical looking glass in Birdman is almost too much. Like so, so much now, the arc feels written. There's an unsettling level of symmetry I would say generally but specifically here. I don't know how many times art has to imitate life has to imitate art before we understand that these things are just synonymous. If you ever wonder why people want desperately to control art, it's because consciously ...
