This Actor Played Five Separate Roles In The Wizard Of Oz

Because of the popularity of 1939's "The Wizard of Oz," a movie that was notoriously dangerous to film, modern audiences have a great deal of information about its production. Many books have been written about "The Wizard of Oz." I recommend "The Making of The Wizard of Oz: Movie Magic and Studio Power" (1977) by Aljean Harmetz for a good historical view of film production in 1939. But even for those of us who have seen the film dozens if not hundreds of times, there may be details, lyrics, nua...

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...

Joss Whedon Wanted Zooey Deschanel To Play The Wasp In An Early Draft Of The Avengers

"The Story of Marvel Studios" is a book littered with behind-the-scenes details about the formation of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It's easy to take the whole shared-universe movie conceit for granted now that it's been done in the MCU, but back in the late 2000s and early 2010s, this was still a relatively new, novel idea. At that time, the concept of having five superhero films cross over into one big team-up remained untested on the big screen. However, that's exactly what "The Avengers" d...

Chargers’ secondary faces test with Dak Prescott, Cowboys

COSTA MESA — Chargers defensive coordinator Renaldo Hill was hesitant to say what Nasir Adderley did wrong, likely because he didn’t want the third-year safety to stop trusting his instincts. Adderley could have held his hands up to prevent Washington wide receiver Terry McLaurin from completing an acrobatic 37-yard catch last week, but hindsight is 20/20. Adderley did everything right except for letting the ball go through his hands. He sprinted from the opposite side of the field after McLauri...

Requiescat in Pace

by Fr. Matthias Our knees make a thud as they hit the carpet floor, fingers sliding on the imaginary strings of our air guitars. Our young voices strain to the Boston classic: “All I want is to have my peace of mii-iiind!!” When the song ends, I shoot a glance at my best buddy in the third grade, Zeke. “I wonder what that means.” He presses the power button on the CD player. “Beats me. But I sure do like the way it sounds. C’mon, lets go play football in the front yard.” Thoug...

‘Spiral: From the Book of Saw’ Review: There’s Plenty of Gore Here, But Not Much Else

Serial killer Jigsaw is long dead but his lust for Rube Goldberg-like torture devices lives on in Spiral: From the Book of Saw, the ninth installment in the seemingly never-ending Saw series. But in many respects, Spiral feels like a sequel in name only. Hell, take that Book of Saw subtitle away and you have less of a Saw movie and more of a serial killer thriller that seems to be cribbing, badly, from Seven and its many knock-offs. Spiral has the unique distinction of featuring Chris Rock and ...

Spiral's Ending Almost Saves a Gross But Bland Saw Sequel

There’s good news and bad news when it comes to Spiral: From the Book of Saw. The good news is you don’t need to rewatch any of the eight previous Saw films to completely understand what’s going on here. The bad news is, devoid of that dense mythology, the film lacks a much-needed identity and originality. The ending…Read more...

Chris Rock's Spiral Spins and Gets a Saw X Sequel

I won’t lie. When I heard the Saw series was being rebooted, I wasn’t excited. From 2004-2010, these films dominated the horror genre. James Wan directed the first film and had no clue his small little film would become ionic. Unfortunately, as the movie progressed in number, the story and quality decreased. The last…Read more...

‘Spiral’ Trailer: Chris Rock Opens ‘The Book of Saw’

Spiral, AKA Spiral: From the Book of Saw, was originally supposed to unleash its bloody horrors last summer. The pandemic nixed that idea, but now, with an end (hopefully) in sight, the sequel is ready to hit the big screen. This latest entry in the Saw franchise stands out because it comes from an unexpected source: Chris Rock. Not only does Rock star in the film, he also is the one who came up with the story, too. Here, Rock plays a cop investigating a series of murders that may or may not be...

Boundaries gone amuck

Personal boundaries are good—no, great—to have, provided we let them assist and guide our growth, not stifle it. Maggie and Zeke lived at opposite ends of openness to risk. When exposed to anything new, Maggie’s first thought was either I can’t do it or I don’t like it. She never ventured beyond the boundaries of her small but safe comfort zone. She frequently felt frustrated and alone. Zeke, on the other hand, was perpetually wading into the unknown and had both the physical and psychological s...

His brother, Zeke (Josh West), has sent him pictures of a young woman (Kristin Condon) who is tied and gagged. Phoning him, Carl is worried about evidence but Zeke is not moved, suggesting that the pictures can just be d...
