The Shawshank Redemption 4K Review: The Masterpiece Dazzles in 4K

The Shawshank Redemption remains one of the all-time great films. Everyone knows this. Really, there’s not much more that can be said about Frank Darabont’s astonishing 1994 masterpiece that hasn’t been said already. Everything about the flick, namely the thoughtful screenplay (adapted from Stephen King’s short story), wonderful performances, solid direction, and beautiful Thomas Newman score, combine to deliver a monumental cinematic achievement that has yet to reveal any signs of wear and tear...

The 15 Best Anthony Hopkins Roles Ranked

The 15 Best Anthony Hopkins Roles Ranked Sir Anthony Hopkins isn't a man that requires much introduction. He's one of the finest actors of his generation, breaking into the mainstream with his portrayal of the villainous Hannibal Lecter. However, his talent was noticed decades before "Silence of the Lambs," and he shined in roles like Richard the Lionheart and the paradoxical Captain Bligh. What makes Hopkins special isn't pretension or devotion to his craft, though. He's simply a consummate pro...

Even in weaker films, Freeman rarely gives a bad performance, and is usuall...

The Unofficial Se7en Sequel Is Now Streaming On Hulu

Did you know there was a sequel to "Se7en"? And that sequel is now streaming on Hulu? It's true! Well ... sort of. After David Fincher's dark, gritty serial killer thriller became an unexpected hit both critically and financially, New Line Cinema decided they needed a sequel. This wouldn't be the easiest feat, of course, since "Se7en" (or "Seven," as normal people call it, and as I will call it from now on in this story) didn't exactly have a happy ending that left room for another story. But st...

David Fincher's Protagonists Ranked Worst To Best

Since 1992, David Fincher has constructed a signature style out of hefty, character-driven thrillers. Fincher's TV shows are just as heady as his films, too, with protagonists that aren't typical heroes, but flawed people. In fact, that theme even extends to his music video work, with his 1990 video for Aerosmith's "Janie's Got a Gun" foretelling the kind of director Fincher was destined to be. Thus, it's the characters who shape the core of a Fincher film; the settings are just window dressing ...

HBO Max’s Sci-fi Rom-com ‘Moonshot’ Adds Zach Braff as an Elon Musk-Type

Zach Braff is quite simply doing it all these days. The popular Scrubs actor pivoted to the director’s chair a few years back with the family comedy Going in Style and even helmed an episode of the hit show Ted Lasso (for which he recently received an Emmy nomination). Now, he’s set to get right back on the other side of the camera again for the upcoming HBO Max film, Moonshot. The Hollywood Reporter has the scoop on the actor joining the project that has been described as “a rom-com with a ...

‘Necroscope’ Horror Novels Becoming TV Series and Animated Film and Video Game and Who Knows What Else

Brian Lumley’s Necroscope novels will serve as the inspiration for “episodic TV, animated features, video games, graphic novels, and emerging formats,” because just one adaptation wouldn’t be enough. Revelations Entertainment, an independent movie production company founded by Morgan Freeman (yes, that Morgan Freeman) and business partner Lori McCreary, will use Lumley’s books as a springboard for numerous adaptations. There are 18 books in Lumley’s series, telling tales of vampires and people ...

Director Talks Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard Sequel Plans, Deleted Scenes

Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard recently released in theaters and signaled the return of blockbusters to movie theaters after the trying times of the COVID-19 pandemic. The follow-up to The Hitman’s Bodyguard is better than its predecessor in nearly every way, so could we see Ryan Reynolds, Samuel L. Jackson, and Salma Hayek return for a third time in a Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard sequel? “Certainly the ending of this film lends itself to more suffering for Michael Bryce,” said director Patrick Hughes ...

Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves Has A Weird Legacy 30 Years Later

Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves is a weird film. No, really. Drop any preconceptions based on nostalgia for those awesome Kenner action figures and re-watch the flick with a fresh perspective. As a kid, I enjoyed the action, romance, and Michael Kamen’s terrific score, but watching Kevin Reynolds’ 1991 blockbuster today, on its 30th Anniversary, it’s clear from the start that the film has no idea what it wants to be and ends up feeling like a hodgepodge of conflicting ideas. Sure, it still works,...

‘Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard’ Review: Snarky, Slapdash, and Really Just Plain Annoying to Watch

The return of inexplicable sequels is but one part of the general “nature is healing” vibe of the 2021 summer movie season, and the awkwardly titled action comedy Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard fits the bill, unfortunately, quite well. A follow-up to the 2017 film The Hitman’s Bodyguard (even as it loses the word “The” for no good reason), this sequel offers more of the same while being poorly paced and substituting yelling and profanity in place of actual wit or humor. Though it’s still plenty glib...
