The 10 Best Western Movies Of The Past Decade Ranked

Steven Spielberg famously commented that the rise of superhero movies reminded him of the popularity of westerns, which has declined precipitously since the genre's heyday. And yet, ironically, westerns haven't taken a backseat in the past decade. If the mix of subversive and traditional western films over the past 10 years indicates anything, it's that the genre is always changing.Westerns are intertwined with the history of cinema itself, as exciting adventure stories set in the Old West were ...

Jigsaw Is A New Netflix Crime Series Where 'Viewers Are In Control'

Netflix is taking another shot at "choose-your-own-adventure" style storytelling with "Jigsaw," a heist drama starring Giancarlo Esposito ("Breaking Bad," "Better Call Saul") that promises to be "unlike any series you've seen before." The streaming service tested the waters with its 2018 interactive film "Black Mirror: Bandersnatch," which allowed viewers to make decisions in the story by selecting different on-screen options. Now, Netflix is trying something even more ambitious with the upcomin...

Muppets Haunted Mansion Special Will Feature An Appearance By The Late Ed Asner

Celebrity deaths are one of those inevitable facts of life that I nonetheless take extremely personally, particularly whenever someone I have personal attachments to is involved. It's only natural! Even without the looming specter of delays caused by the pandemic, the nature of this business means that it's not unusual for an actor or entertainer's last work to release well after their actual deaths. This can be deeply bittersweet, reminding us of what we've lost while simultaneously giving us a...

Lucasfilm's Obi-Wan Show Will Feature F9 Star Sung Kang Wielding A Lightsaber

To the surprise of nobody, Disney and Lucasfilm are keeping very quiet about the upcoming "Obi-Wan Kenobi" series. Ewan McGregor had to lie about it for years. They're not going to tell us anything. So, we're left to extrapolate what we can when some poor actors try to say nothing, while saying something, during press junkets. Luckily, Sung Kang recently spilled some tea during an interview. And it's substantial! Relatively speaking. His character, who does not yet have a name, is going to have ...

Three Jackass Stunts Were Too Dangerous To Actually Make It Into The Movies

The "Jackass" crew have put themselves through all kinds of cartoonish violence in the name of entertainment, but it turns out there were some stunts that went too far even for these gnarly dudes. While playing "Truth or Dab" with "Hot Ones" host Shaun Evans to promote the upcoming "Jackass Forever", Steve-O and Jason "Wee Man"Acuña recently shared the three bits that were deemed too violent to make it into the "Jackass" movies.  Too Hot For Jackass?

Dune Is Off To The Races At The Box Office, Let's Set Some Expectations

A certain section of film folks have been looking forward to one movie above all others over the last couple of years, and that movie is "Dune."

15 Must-See Horror Anime Movies

Creating terror with animation means that you aren't limited to our concept of reality. In anime, the body can be bent, stretched, and ripped apart using excruciating and fantastical methods that can only be realized via hand-drawn or computer-generated images. Films such as "Vampire Hunter D" and "Wicked City" realize horror anime's grotesque potential, creating hellish worlds where women become spider demons and eat men alive. Old tropes and well-tread creatures such as zombies are given facel...

5 Netflix Shows That We Swear We Didn't Make Up ... Or Did We?

I cover entertainment for a living, which means I'm well-aware of most movies and TV shows, even if I'll never watch them. But every now and then, I'll get an email about a show that I am convinced is 100% made-up, just pure fiction, a total lie. The latest example: "Another Life," a Netflix series that boasts it's headed into its second season. Yeah right. I don't think so. Below, I've rounded up several potential Netflix titles, and I want you, dear reader, to guess along with me. Are they fac...

Dune Director Denis Villeneuve Is Not A Fan Of Marvel Movies, Sorry

"It's been far too long since the last time a prominent filmmaker was randomly asked about their opinions about Marvel and sparked another week of relentless social media chicanery." True story, I swear!

Spencer Review: Kristen Stewart Gives A Raw, Brilliant Performance In This Haunting Fable [TIFF 2021]
