But in the opening minutes of "The Last Jedi," the eighth installment of the Skywalker Saga, writer-director Rian Johnson introduces finality. A victor shall emerge, and it won't be the good guys.

20 Underrated Comedy Movies You Need To Watch

Laughter may be the best medicine, but sometimes it's hard to find something worth chuckling at. These days, that feels especially true. But movies are one of our best ways to escape, and mirth, much like science fiction or fantasy, can be a way to flee from reality for a while. Putting ourselves in someone else's shoes and finding empathy through their own terrible but hilarious issues is a timeless way to bring a little light back into our hearts.However, sometimes it feels like we've already ...

The Hawkeye Easter Eggs You Might Have Missed In Episode 5

The penultimate episode of Marvel's "Hawkeye" is out and has me, once again, wondering why there are only six episodes per season with the Disney+ shows? Yes, partially because I love them (for the most part), but also because they are cramming an awful lot of storylines into a short time. "Ronin" had me feeling this because, with only one more episode to wrap this all up, I wonder if this show that I love so much is going to fall prey to the big issue with Marvel's TV shows; the final episode d...

Why That Major Hawkeye Episode 4 Cameo Is So Significant

(WARNING: Major spoilers for the fourth episode of "Hawkeye," obvs!)Although the reveal should not have come as much of a shock considering her casting was announced in the trades over a year ago, today's fourth episode of Marvel Studios' "Hawkeye" brought back everyone's favorite ex-Black Widow Yelena Belova, as played by the always amazing Florence Pugh ("Midsommar," "Little Women").

Kristen Stewart Nabs Small Part In Olivier Assayas' Irma Vep Series For HBO

Kristen Stewart and Olivier Assayas: together again. Stewart, who appeared in the Assayas films "Clouds of Sils Maria" and "Personal Shopper," will reunite with the filmmaker in the upcoming "Irma Vep" TV adaptation. We don't know who Stewart is playing, and her role is reportedly "small," so don't expect anything too elaborate. Still, news of Stewart and Assayas getting together again is worth reporting. The series, which is coming from A24 and HBO, is based on Assayas' 1996 film of the same na...

12 Awesome Action Movies That Never Got Sequels

It's always unfortunate when a promising franchise is cut down in its prime. There are plenty of action franchises that have failed with later sequels -- "The Highlander," "Starship Troopers," and "Die Hard," just to name a few examples. There are also sequels that completely ruined any enthusiasm for future installments; after disasters like "Speed 2: Cruise Control" and "The Whole Ten Yards," no one wanted to see those franchises continue.A great action sequel gives filmmakers a chance to rais...

The Top 5 Kristen Stewart Performances, And Where To Watch Them

Here we are, in the year of lord 2021, and I'm still seeing folks on Al Gore's internet claiming that Kristen Stewart is a bad actress. The entire basis of this opinion seems based around Stewart's admittedly stiff work in the "Twilight" saga. But the "Twilight" film franchise ended nearly a decade ago, and Stewart has done so much more since then. To be fair, Stewart's reputation as a great actress has increased over the years thanks to her consistent indie movie work. And while I'm no Oscar pr...

The 14 Best Val Kilmer Movies Ranked

The 15 Best '90s Horror Movies Ranked

The '90s was a fascinating decade in which Furbies, Beanie Babies, and Tamagotchi's ruled toy stores, "Friends" dominated TV, Nirvana took over the radio, and people were dancing willy-nilly to the Macarena. Technological advances were shaking up society, with the advancement of the World Wide Web culminating in the launch of a little site called Google in 1998. Bill Clinton's affair with Monica Lewinsky was one of the biggest scandals of the past half-century. Meanwhile, in the world of cinema,...

Robert Downey Jr Thinks This Is His Best Role – And He's Right

After pulling off the 2008 double whammy of starring in the blockbuster "Iron Man" and getting nominated for an Oscar for the hit comedy "Tropic Thunder," it was official: Robert Downey Jr. became a superstar. This was a particularly crazy development because by that point the son of famed underground filmmaker Robert Downey Sr. had been appearing onscreen for decades, and had only a few years before been considered a drug burnout, box office poison, and an all-around lost cause.Of course he did...

Every MCU Post-Credits Sequence Ranked From Worst To Best

Audiences have been trained like Pavlov's pups to sit through the credits after each installment of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

See, Marvel Studios has made an art form out of mid-credits and post-credits teasers. Some MCU films have just one scene at the very end of the credits. Others have several sprinkled throughout....

Tom Cruise Didn't Want To Make Top Gun: Maverick Without Val Kilmer

The early buzz for "Top Gun: Maverick" is that the movie (the first 13 minutes that critics have seen, at least) is stellar; telling a new story while paying homage to the original 1986 film.The "Top Gun" sequel, which stars Tom Cruise reprising his role as Maverick, also has Val Kilmer coming back as his rival, Iceman. Bringing back Kilmer — who lost the use of his voice while recovering from throat cancer — in the film was apparently a requirement for Cruise. "Val Had To Be In It" In an interv...

Solo: A Star Wars Story: Thandiwe Newton Reveals Her Character's Original Fate

It has been common knowledge for a while now that "Star Wars" movies have experienced a significant series of rocky productions in recent years. Almost every film since Disney's acquisition of Lucasfilm (with the notable exception of Rian Johnson's "Star Wars: The Last Jedi") has suffered from sudden creative changeovers, atypical rewrites and re-edits, and rushed production schedules that came at the cost of a sound screenplay. In the minds of many, "Solo: A Star Wars Story" represents the post...
