How Wild Wild West Became One Of The Most Expensive Westerns Of All Time

I don't care how many times Will Smith jokes about passing up playing Neo in "The Matrix" in order to star in what he considers his worst movie, "Wild Wild West," in 1999, that movie blew my little 9-year-old mind. 1999 is one of the best years for movies across all genres.

Shaken, Not Stirred: Daniel Craig’s Bond Films Ranked

No Time to Die marks the end of Daniel Craig’s astonishing run as James Bond, which is absolutely wild. Consider this, Craig is now the longest-running James Bond out of the actors who have played the famed superspy over the years. Craig’s 15-year stretch (2006-2021) outdoes Roger Moore’s previous 12-year record (1973-1985), unless you count Never Say Never Again as canon, in which case Sean Connery wins by a landslide with 21 years (1962-1983), but ranks behind Connery and Moore in terms of fil...

No Time To Die Owes A Major Debt To Another James Bond Classic

Like any film 25 entries into a decades-old franchise, "No Time To Die", the final installment in Daniel Craig's tenure as James Bond, owes a great debt to the movies that came before it. "No Time To Die", however, owes an uncommonly large debt to one of the best, but least talked about, films in the Bond franchise: 1969's "On Her Majesty's Secret Service."There are spoilers for "On Her Majesty's Secret Service" and "No Time To Die" in this article.

"2 senators cannot be allowed to defeat what 48 senators and 210 House members want."

Tweeted Bernie Sanders, quoted at Newsweek.  Who's doing the "allowing"? All 100 Senators were elected in their state and each holds 1/100 of the power. It's not 2 against 48 but 52 against 48. There's no "allowing" going on, just an accumulation of total votes. The 2 are most certainly allowed to vote the way they choose, representing their state, and it's offensive to speak of not allowing them.  Speaking of Sanders, here's something from Axios:  Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) withheld su...

No Time To Die Features Easter Eggs From The Roger Moore Era And All Of 'Bond History'

The "Bond" movies easily rank among the most nostalgic franchises currently being made, which is fitting for a character and a legacy that's so steeped in tradition. Fans have come to expect references and callbacks to the James Bond films they grew up watching, and repeatedly returned to. Out of Daniel Craig's 15-year tenure as the superspy, 2012's "Skyfall" was most emblematic of this mindset as its release coincided with the 50th anniversary of the franchise. With the imminent release of "No ...
