Is Iron Man 3 a Christmas Movie? Disney+ Sure Thinks So
What's the first thing you think of when remembering Iron Man 3? A glowing Guy Pearce? The supervillain Mandarin turning out to be a spaced-out British thespian? Not enough actual Iron Man footage?

The 10 Most Underrated Action Films Of The '80s

Action flicks about heists, capers, police detectives, and traditional human team-ups have become a thing of the past. Mainstream films in the genre today are more often about robots, A.I., and massive superhero battles in big cities. Occasionally we still get a great action movie that stays grounded and realistic, but if you genuinely want to get a taste of the original style of the genre, you'll need to look back to the 1980s when the genre was in its prime.

‘Chernobyl’: Walking the Fine Line of Production Design on the Hit HBO and Sky Show

  • Variety
It’s been a busy few months for Luke Hull, a production designer on “Chernobyl.” Fresh from landing an Emmy for his work on the HBO and Sky hit series, he has been named one of BAFTA and Netflix’s Breakthrough Brits, a cohort of standout talent who get a year of mentoring and have their burgeoning careers fast-tracked.

The National Film & TV School graduate tells Variety about becoming obsessed with “Chernobyl.” “When you read a script like this, you say instinctively, ‘I want to be a part of that,’” he said. “What I did think was how much of this is real? Then when you start your own research, you realize it’s more real than you can imagine and worse beyond. Everyone, as they joined, became obsessed.”

‘End of the F***ing World’ Season Two: A Perfect Ending Undone

‘End of the F***ing World’ Season Two: A Perfect Ending Undone
“It was a fitting end. A doomed love story. A perfect tragedy.”

This is a character in Season Two of The End of the F***ing World describing the dark comedy’s first season. Across eight compact episodes, that season followed mismatched would-be lovers James (Alex Lawther) and Alyssa (Jessica Barden) — him a potential psychopath incapable of feeling anything, her an open wound who always felt too much — on an unintentional crime spree across the English countryside. There was murder, mayhem, vintage country music, and an utterly fitting but deliberately

Apocalypse: The Forgotten Bruce Willis Game

Jack Beresford Nov 5, 2019

Yep, Bruce Willis once tried to make a video game. It's to remember Activision and Neversoft's Apocalypse.

W.C. Fields famously said: “Never work with children or animals.” For Bruce Willis, that mantra probably reads more like: “Never work with Kevin Smith or video game developers.”

Willis’ "creative differences" with Smith are well-documented - and there for the world to see in their ironically titled movie Cop Out - but Bruce’s fateful foray into the world of gaming is largely forgotten. Developed by Neversoft and released on PlayStation back in October 1998, the title of Apocalypse felt like it was designed to evoke memories of Bruce’s recent blockbuster success, Armageddon, but most PS1 fans knew it as "that Bruce Willis game."

Apocalypse boasted a cover featuring an impressive digital rendering of Willis, staring blankly ahead, as if a passport photo, alongside the word “Apocalypse” over a

It's Christmas Movie Time as Mariah Carey Rings in the Holiday Season
Mariah Carey puts Halloween away and declares it's Christmas time in a humorous new video. The pop star decided that it's time to throw the pumpkins away and start digging out the Christmas decorations, which also means it's time to start watching some of those beloved holiday movies. Carey also has an agenda here since she just released a deluxe anniversary version of her 1994 Christmas album and is about to embark on a tour, which she says was inspired by Kanye West's Sunday Services.

The new video starts with Maria Carey falling asleep in her 80s rocker Halloween costume. As she passes out, her phone shows the time as 11:59 Pm October 31st. As the clock strikes midnight on November 1st, a holiday ringtone tune starts and Carey picks up a call from Santa Claus. "Santa!" Carey yells, while magically dressed in Christmas pajamas. We hear Santa bellow a "Ho,

Kaithi movie review : Critics Review, Rating, Cast and Crew

A new breed of stars has come into Tamil cinema to challenge the supremacy of the Rajinikanth-Kamal-Ajith-Suriya generation of superstars. Foremost among this new generation of exciting ceiling-breaking stars is Karthi, a fearless unstoppable actor who is famished for new challenges each time, and who experiments with his performances to give us characters that are not just heroes but sometimes tainted or fallen heroes.

In "Kaithi" (prisoner), Karthi, the star attraction, doesn't show up in the plot until we are 15-20 minutes into the narrative. I saw his fans getting restless. But I also saw how they settled down to watch his transformation into a brooding, haunted prisoner-turned-hero and a desperate father who would go to any lengths to meet a daughter he has never met.

Director Lokesh Kanagraj claims to be inspired by Kamal Haasan's "Virumandi" and the Bruce Willis-starrer "Die Hard". I disagree. "Kaithia is as

Disney Allegedly Locking Classic Fox Movies Away in the Vault

Disney closed its $71.3 billion merger with Fox earlier this year, marking one of the most gigantic media shifts in history.

This is going to have wide-ranging consequences for movie lovers and those in the movie business.

CineCina Film Festival Announces Second Edition Line-Up

This is the second year for NYC’s CineCina Film Festival, which is flying relatively under-the-radar relative to its titles. Per its press releases, CineCina is “the only New York-based film festival dedicated to promoting excellent Chinese films,” and it’s true that the lineup features a smattering of new Chinese films. But it also has one Cannes premiere, Elia Suleiman’s It Must Be Heaven, that wasn’t at Nyff; the overdue first NY screening of Yuri Bykov’s Russian class-conscious Die Hard riff The Factory; a reprise screening of Nyff selection The Wild Goose Lake (at $20 a pop, $10 cheaper than tickets for main slate Nyff […]
