The 12 Best Film Composers Of All Time

There's more to a film score than an opening theme, though many of the more recognizable composers got to where they are by writing the theme to a beloved franchise. Film scores set the mood. They create an environment. As far as post-production goes, music is as important as editing when it comes to tone and pacing. Sometime you don't even notice the score in the background of a film, and that's powerful too. There's a reason that a lot of people like listening to film scores while working. It'...

The 20 Best '80s Horror Movies Ranked

The '80s were a boom time for horror. Two formats of video recorder (VHS and Betamax) duked it out, with VHS eventually winning out due to being the cheaper format to license. The proliferation of this technology in the home meant that films had a market outside cinemas for the first time, and rental stores cropped up worldwide. Direct-to-video became a valid way to release films, and a lot of people wanted to cash in on the growing horror craze. In addition, because it was now possible to recor...

The 20 Best Heist Movies Of All Time

Heist movies transcend genre. You can have frivolous, fun heist movies like "The Italian Job," or heartfelt, straight-faced ones like "Point Break." The heist itself can be meticulously planned and meditative, like the one in "Inside Man," or fall apart before it's even begun, as in "Good Time."To be clear, this is a list of heist films, not movies about con artists. "The Sting," "The Brothers Bloom," and "Gambit" are all brilliant, but the heist tropes -- planning the mission, gathering the tea...

Dust Devil: Hello Engine’s Triumph TR6 desert sled

Hayden Roberts once quipped that when he moved from England to California in the early 2000s, it was “about 40 years too late.” His work testifies to that: as Hello Engine, he builds neat vintage Triumphs that look like they were transplanted straight from the 60s. And like many of the desert sleds from that golden age, his Triumphs are never stock under the hood. His latest project is this 1960-something Triumph TR6. And we use that designation loosely, because, as usual, Hayden pieced it to...

The last humanist: how Paul Gilroy became the most vital guide to our age of crisis

One of Britain’s most influential scholars has spent a lifetime trying to convince people to take race and racism seriously. Are we finally ready to listen?In 2000, the race equality thinktank the Runnymede Trust published a report about the “future of multi-ethnic Britain”. Launched by the Labour home secretary Jack Straw, it proposed ways to counter racial discrimination and rethink British identity. The report was nuanced and scholarly, the result of two years’ deliberation. It was honest abo...

Sled Heaven: Paul Hartman’s Triumph TR6 desert sled

Is there any motorcycle genre more evocative than the ‘desert sled’? The very name conjures up images of blasting across the sandy shrublands of Baja. ‘Dual sport’ or ‘enduro’ just doesn’t cut it. For Brit bike fans, the heyday of the desert sled was from the mid 50s to the early 70s. Triumph twins ruled the proverbial roost, taking over from stripped down Harleys and Indians—before Huskies and Yamahas became the weapons of choice for the high plains and dunes of the western United States. ...

The Least Interesting Generation

Before Steve McQueen’s 18th birthday, he had worked on a farm, joined a circus, sold pens at a traveling carnival, hitchhiked and rode the rails across the country, worked as a lumberjack in Canada, labored on a chain gang in the Deep South (punishment for the crime of vagrancy), served a short (and illegal — he was underage) stint in the Merchant Marines, and joined the Marine Corps for a three-year enlistment. After getting out of the service, the newly-minted veteran moved to New York City,...

Quentin Tarantino’s ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’ Novel is a Fascinating, Frustrating Display of the Filmmaker’s Strengths and Weaknesses

Quentin Tarantino is now a novelist. Since the beginning of his career, his films have employed a novelistic structure, but now he’s writing actual books, the first of which adapts his last movie, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, for the page. Usually, it’s the other way around and we’re talking about the leap from page to screen. For whatever reason, movie novelizations have never been afforded artistic respect like film adaptations even though they fulfill a comparable task by translating a sto...

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood by Quentin Tarantino review – from auteur to author

You’ve seen the film, now read the director’s own novelisation. And it turns out that his way with words is infectious and funQuentin Tarantino’s most recent film, Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood, seemed to split audiences along generational lines. Despite its charms and Tarantino’s customary flair, I came out of it frustrated and a bit bored, wondering if it was finally time to divorce this film-maker who’d shaped the sense of cinematic possibility of anyone who grew up in the 1990s. Tarantino’s...

Richard Donner, prolific Hollywood director and producer, has died. He was 91. Donner died Monday, according to his wife, producer Lauren Schuler Donner, and his business manager. No cause of death has been revealed. Donner directed some of the most iconic movies of the 1970s and ’80s, including Superman, The Goonies, and Lethal Weapon. Donner’s Superman (starring Christopher Reeve) was the first “modern” superhero film, and is at least partially responsible for the Marvel and DC mega-hits of t...

The prolific Soderbergh shot this star-studded caper during the pandemic, but this isn’t another of the filmmaker’s shot-on-the-fly iPhone movies.

‘She Said’ Will Let Carey Mulligan and Zoe Kazan Take Down Harvey Weinstein

The Harvey Weinstein scandal sent shockwaves through Hollywood when The New York Times broke the story in 2017 – not necessarily because of the sexual nature of the crimes Weinstein allegedly committed, but because a high-powered producer was actually being forced to suffer consequences in an industry that often looked the other way. Now the story of Weinstein’s downfall is coming to the big screen in a new movie from Universal Pictures. Carey Mulligan and Zoe Kazan are in negotiations to play ...
