32 Days of Halloween XIV: Day #24

A cemetery history lesson,Bunnicula, & The Shout! First things first. I absolutely adore this NASA Halloween message. Makes the space station somewhat spooky, even. Next, a brief history lesson about cemeteries. You might know all of this already. As for me, I didn’t know the part about grazing. And then we come to an animated classic. Everyone I know familiar with the vampire rabbit speaks of the character with great affection. So not only do we have the origin...

25 Terrible Endings That Ruined Good Horror Movies

You know the feeling. You're watching a horror movie and you're loving it. You're grooving on it. You're leaning forward in your seat, anticipating the next scare, the next kill, the next revelation. "This movie is going to stick the landing," you think to yourself. Famous last words. Maybe it's a boneheaded character choice, a sudden change in tone, or the pacing slows to a crawl just when things should be speeding up. Maybe it's a plot twist so stupid you can no longer take the whole thing ser...

Why Diana: The Musical Is So Controversial

Diana: The Musical is controversial largely because it attempts to turn Diana's real-life into a fun romp without really acknowledging the tragedies of her life. Diana dances in a Madonna-style wedding dress, hoping to make Charles "a rocker." James Hewitt arrives riding a saddle and making double-entendres. This version of Diana is a resilient woman who wants to make her marriage work and tries to use the press to her advantage in doing so, with no proper recognition of the fact the real perso...

14 Movies Like Knives Out That You'll Want To Watch ASAP

"Knives Out" does a lot of things right. The film, directed by Rian Johnson and starring some of Hollywood's best (a trend that's continuing in its upcoming sequel), may feel unique in its blend of comedy, murder, and sly social commentary. But the comedy mystery is actually one of Hollywood's oldest genres, one that's rarely shy about slipping in a biting statement here and there. A comedy mystery can be sleek or slapstick, dumb or wise, or all of those things at once.Mystery comedies first pea...

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...

Fantasy Box Office Bombs That Deserve A Second Chance

Fantasy films aren't released every day. The genre is not in as dire straits as, say, westerns or musicals, but fantasy is certainly a bit of an endangered species -- or, at the very least, a genre in decline.Fantasy relies on extensive world-building and frequently dabbles in magic, curses, and alternative histories. Dragons, fantastical creatures, and visual spectacle are mainstays of the genre; technology is usually set aside. Perhaps for these reasons, fantasy films tend either tend to be bl...

The Best '90s Movies You Can Stream On Netflix Right Now

There's something magical about '90s movies. Looking back, the '90s seem like a simpler time. The economy was booming, and movies were greenlit faster than ever. Summer popcorn flicks from the '90s are a thing unto themselves -- huge, bombastic blockbusters that rival today's superhero movies in terms of pure fun. There's something charming about the special effects, which didn't age all that well but were cutting-edge at the time. The costumes (and hairstyles) are ridiculous. The '90s was a dec...

Ariel Fisher’s Favorite Movies of All Time

It’s strange being asked to write something about yourself where you work.

Unfortunately, it’s a habit. I’ll try to keep it contained. Anyway! I’m Ariel Fisher and I’ve been freelancing for /Film for a few years now.

David Lynch Almost Made a Major Manga Adaptation in the ’90s

In the ‘90s, after the success of Twin Peaks and Wild at Heart, David Lynch almost made a live-action adaptation of Otomo Katsuhiro’s manga  Domu: A Child’s Dream.  It’s not as well known or popular as Katsuhiro’s own  Akira , but it’s still considered a major work. And in a number of ways, this movie adaptation almost happened because of George Lucas. Recently, on the Filmumentaries Podcast , Nilo Rodis-Jamero related a piece of this story, but /Film followed up with him to ask mor...
