10 Best Narrative Films of the 2010s, From ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ to ‘Moonlight’ (Photos)

  • The Wrap
To begin with, a disclaimer: There are practically no 2019 titles on my Best of the Decade list, not because there weren’t a lot of great films this year, but because I haven’t had the opportunity to live with them for all that long. My Best of 2019 list was its own challenge to write, but this year’s movies are just too new for them to have knocked around in my central nervous system the way these earlier titles have. Film historians can debate the major movie-related events of the decade — the rise of streaming, the dominance of Disney — but these are the films took up residency with me and refuse to move out:

11-30 (alphabetically): “Anomalisa,” “Before Midnight,” “Bernie,” “Bridesmaids,” “Call Me By Your Name,” “Certain Women,” “Clouds of Sils Maria,” “Ex Machina,” “Force Majeure,” “The Great Beauty,” “The Handmaiden,” “Happy Hour,” “Holy Motors,” “Leave No Trace,

Rebel Wilson Says She Lost 8 Lbs. in 4 Days While Filming Cats Dance Scenes
Rebel Wilson got her daily workout in while starring in the upcoming film Cats.

As part of an ensemble cast that includes Taylor Swift, Idris Elba, Jennifer Hudson and Jason Derulo, Wilson, 39, opened up about working with her castmates on the film’s extensive dance numbers — resulting in the loss of a few pounds.

“I lost 8 pounds, shooting my number, in four days,” Wilson told Entertainment Tonight on Thursday. “One, because there’s a lot of physicalities… but also, they heated up the set very high, to almost 100 [degrees] Fahrenheit, so that we could never cool down.”

Wilson said the temperature

‘What She Said: The Art of Pauline Kael’ Film Review: Firebrand Film Critic Remembered in Fascinating Documentary

  • The Wrap
It’s hard to believe with all the divergent opinions floating around today about movies on Twitter, Facebook, Rotten Tomatoes, Metacritic and dozens of other outlets, that there was a time when a handful of influential film critics wielded the power to make or break a movie.

And the most powerful of those critics was Pauline Kael, who held sway with a sharp tongue and corrosive wit at the New Yorker from 1967 to 1989. To see Rob Garver’s affectionate documentary about her career, “What She Said: The Art of Pauline Kael,” is to be once again swept away by the excitement of cinema as she experienced it.

Born on a chicken farm in Northern California and raised in San Francisco, Kael was an outsider to the New York art scene, and that otherness gave her the temperament and cocksure confidence to find her own voice. She desperately wanted to be an artist,

Disney+'s Home Alone Reboot Finds Its Kevin Replacement

  • MovieWeb
The Home Alone reboot just became very real as several key cast members have been added to the Disney+ feature. We learned not long ago that this was one of the Fox properties that Disney inherited in the $71.3 billion merger that went into effect earlier this year. They're not wasting much time, as we've learned that a trio of stars led by Jojo Rabbit breakout Archie Yates will lead the reboot.

According to a new report, Archie Yates, Ellie Kemper (The Office) and Rob Delaney is on board to direct, working from a screenplay by Saturday Night Live veterans Mikey Day and Streeter Seidell. We had previously heard that the new protagonist will be named Max, a nine-year-old boy who is mischievous and wise beyond his years. There are no specific story details available at this time. So it's not clear if Disney will be going for a straight-ahead remake,

Paul Feig Is Loving The Ghostbusters: Afterlife Trailer

Paul Feig’s 2016 Ghostbusters was intended to reboot and revitalize a long-dormant franchise. The director of hits Bridesmaids and The Heat pitched a modern action-comedy with the twist that this new team would be played by some of the funniest women working in Hollywood. How could it possibly fail? Well, it did.

Yes, the film had to battle uphill against a deluge of misogynistic online criticism, but its main problem was that it simply wasn’t very good. The movie went on to lose money at the box office and sequel plans were quickly shelved. That paved the way for Ghostbusters: Afterlife, which ignores the 2016 effort and acts as a sequel to the two originals.

Since Feig’s pic hit theaters, there’s been quite a bit of bad blood between the Ghostbusters 2016 and Ghostbusters: Afterlife teams. Star Leslie Jones even slammed the project back in January, saying:

“So insulting.

Wonder Woman 1984 Director Explains Why Kristen Wiig Was Cast as Cheetah

Wonder Woman 1984 Director Explains Why Kristen Wiig Was Cast as Cheetah
We got our first real look at Kristen Wiig as Cheetah in the just released Wonder Woman 1984 trailer. Since her announcement, comedic actress Kristen Wiig has always seemed like a surprising choice to play the role of villain. Known mostly for her time spent on Saturday Night Live and comedies such as MacGruber, Bridesmaids and Ghostbusters, her ability to play a fighting comic book bad guy has been completely untested.

Well, here is director Patty Jenkins to explain why she cast Wiig, and why we should be excited to see the results when Wonder Woman 1984 is released in theaters this summer.

"We were super fans of Kristen, and we love how funny she is, but also I've been a huge admirer of what a great actress she is for a long time. So when we needed someone to go all the way from one end of the spectrum of being funny,

5 of the best online games based on classic films

  • HeyUGuys
It’s no surprise to say that Hollywood studios are seeing huge profits from franchise films. The massive box office success of The Avengers, Star Wars, and other assorted franchises are testament to the fact that the more recognisable a film series is, the more money it will pull in from audiences around the world. As the studios look further afield to increase their remuneration we are seeing a surge of online games based on new and classic movies.

This is not a new phenomenon. Anyone who grew up in the ’80s will attest to the hundreds, if not thousands, of merchandising possibilities that were explored. Computer games, lunchboxes, bedspreads, tie-in novelisations and so on were rife, and continue to be so. One thing that is clear: we are in an age of nostalgia and heavy emphasis is being put on audience recognition. We are nearing Christmas right now, and

10 Years After MacGruber, Jasper Cole Is Back with His New Movie Anyone Home? [Exclusive]

10 Years After MacGruber, Jasper Cole Is Back with His New Movie Anyone Home? [Exclusive]
Ten years ago, Jasper Cole stepped onto the set of Jorma Taccone's MacGruber, a satirical action-comedy starring TV funnyman Will Forte as a MacGyver-type who gets the opportunity to finally take down a long-time enemy. Cole, who had been working largely in TV up until that point, would play the villainous Zeke. Nearly a decade after the film's release, Cole talks about the cult status the film has garnered, his new projects and why he doesn't mind that the film ended up seeing him ultimately typecast.

You've remained constantly in-demand for the better part of thirty years, Jasper - what's your secret?

Jasper Cole: Thanks so much. I'm blessed and grateful to still be working after so many years. I was lucky to eventually get "typecast" as a bad guy. I always say it took me years to finally get on any list at all. I hope its my

10 Bridesmaids Memes That Are Too Hilarious For Words

There are so many raunchy comedies centered around a group of male characters. So in 2011, when Bridesmaids came out, it broke the mold.

The movie focused on Annie, played by Kristen Wiig, a woman who begins to re-evaluate her life after being asked to be a maid of honor for her best friend Lillian, played by Maya Rudolph. The movie also stars Rose Byrne, Melissa McCarthy, Ellie Kemper, and Wendi McLendon-Covey.

Last Christmas may be the worst film of the year – so why is it box-office gold?

Written by Emma Thompson, directed by Paul Feig of Bridesmaids, soundtracked by George Michael – and panned by critics. Why are audiences flocking to see it?

Last Christmas, this year’s festive schlockfest, is bad. Oh, it’s bad. It looked Ok on paper: a Christmas romcom written by Emma Thompson and Bryony Kimmings, directed by Paul Feig of Bridesmaids, a catchy George Michael soundtrack, a festive Covent Garden setting, Michelle Yeoh – what’s not to love? But it is bad. It is not only one of the worst films of the year, it’s possibly one of the worst films ... ever?

But despite being objectively terrible, it is one of those interesting cinematic phenomena where audience opinions differ greatly from those of critics. Its user score on Rotten Tomatoes is currently 81% (against a 48% critics’ score). In its first week of release, it has knocked Joker, the first film in a

Last Christmas: hearts, history and Heal the Pain – discuss with spoilers

Does the trailer reveal too much? Did anyone bother to check the dates of the Yugoslav wars? And can a George Michael vehicle really be as sexless as a stollen?

•This article contains spoilers!

The contemporary culture of spoiler paranoia is hardly ever one that collides with the romantic comedy genre: who walks into a romcom not knowing more or less what’s going to happen by the time the credits roll? Last Christmas, however, is a bit of an exception: from the moment the trailer for the latest fuzzy diversion from Bridesmaids director Paul Feig hit the internet back in August, it seemed clear this one wouldn’t end in the usual way. Were we right? Nothing but spoilers ahead, obviously.
