5 Daniel Craig Movies To Stream After No Time To Die

"No Time to Die" is the final hurrah for Daniel Craig's James Bond, but luckily, the actor has had plenty of other great roles over the years. So if you find yourself curious about some other standout entries in his filmography, we're here to guide you. A quick note before we begin: "Knives Out" and "Munich" are not on this list. That's because A) this list is limited to just five films, B) "Knives Out" was very well-received when it came out a few years ago, so I assume you've probably seen it ...

Interview: Lamb Star Noomi Rapace & Director Valdimar Jóhannsson Talk Dark Folktale

Valdimar Jóhannsson’s slow-burn feature directorial debut Lamb, written by Jóhannsson and Icelandic author Sjón and starring Noomi Rapace, Hilmir Snær Guðnason, and Björn Hlynur Haraldsson, is a uniquely bizarre and moving supernatural thriller examining grief, parenthood, family, hope, loss, betrayal, and the unforgiving wild encompassed by an escalating tension that promises an unexpected reckoning on the desperate couple at the center of the dark (and occasionally humorous) folktale. “In the ...

A Surprisingly Wholesome Conversation With The Minds Behind A24's Lamb [Fantastic Fest]

As you'd expect from a horror movie released by A24, "Lamb" is bleak, unsettling, and designed to leave audiences wondering what the hell they just watched. But it's also surprisingly funny, and somehow, frequently adorable. If you speak to the folks who made it, this combination starts to make sense. "Lamb" stars Noomi Rapace and Hilmir Snær Guðnason as a couple living on a remote Icelandic farm, tending to sheep and grappling with a recent tragedy. Then, a miracle: one of their sheep gives bir...

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...

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 ...
