Wall-E Moments That Go Right Over Kids' Heads  

On the surface, "Wall-E" is a heart-warming adventure about an earnest robot that saves humanity and finds love along the way. The 2008 film is one of the best Pixar films ever made, worthy of its entry into the vaunted Criterion Collection. It offers simple entertainment for the kids and something meatier for adults, in true Pixar fashion. Unlike most films from the studio, "Wall-E" doesn't have much in the way of double entendres. Granted, it's hard to do that when the robots and the humans ...

Matt Berry's Path To Acting Was Perfectly Matt Berry  

Matt Berry, the Englishman known for his trademark epic, boomy voice, has always embraced a unique persona ever since his first start on stage. Despite and indeed because of his highly theatrical delivery, the actor mostly appears in comedic roles, such as title character Steven Toast on "Toast of London," the incompetent CEO Douglas Reynholm in "The IT Crowd," and most recently and perhaps famously, the horny vampire Laszlo on "What We Do in the Shadows." The contrast between his royal-like de

12 Underrated Musical Movies You Need To Check Out  

Ah, the musical! When sound became a part of the movies, the genre was all the rage, absolutely dominating the 1940s and '50s. Then, there was an exceptionally long period when musicals were few and far between. Thankfully, for those who love them, musicals have made a pretty strong comeback in the 21st century, with "Chicago" winning a best picture Oscar and films like "La La Land," "Dreamgirls," Steven Spielberg's "West Side Story," and "Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again" making an impact at the ...

Marilyn Monroe Used An Unorthodox Technique To Nail Her Asphalt Jungle Audition  

As shocking as it sounds to modern audiences, Marilyn Monroe's star qualities weren't immediately recognized by Hollywood. After gaining some attention in the modeling world, Monroe attempted to break into the world of acting, but struggled in those early years. Although Twentieth Century Fox signed the aspiring actress in 1946, the studio dropped her shortly afterwards when her star failed to rise. Monroe fell back on modeling, and reluctantly posed nude to avoid financial ruin, despite belie...

To creator George Lucas, the future is bleak, but the past is ideal. There is something to look back on. "Star Trek" is set in the distant future and tells stories of peace, benevolent technologies, anti-colonialism, and the power of diplomacy.

10 Movies To Watch If You Loved Netflix's Blonde  

If you strapped in for the 166-minute runtime of Andrew Dominik's "Blonde," a fictional interpretation of Marilyn Monroe based on the novel by Joyce Carol Oates, odds are you don't want to stop thinking about it. Netflix's ambitious swing of a project, their first to earn an NC-17 rating, is meant to inspire passionate responses and generate vigorous debate. After all, a figure like Marilyn Monroe is big enough to warrant several interpretations. "Blonde" is a relentlessly stylized look at th...

Star Trek 4 Has Been Removed From Paramount's Upcoming Release Slate  

The last "Star Trek" film to be released as part of the Kelvin timeline was the woefully undervalued "Star Trek Beyond," arguably the best of the three newest entries. Since then, "Trek" fans have been waiting (impatiently, no doubt) for a fourth entry in the new film franchise, and it seemed like there was hope when it was announced that "WandaVision" director Matt Shakman would be helming the as-yet-untitled "Star Trek 4."

Five episodes into its debut season, it's clear that "Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power" is one of the best-looking shows on television right now. Whether or not you like its musical harfoot interludes and "Game of Thrones"-esque plot machinations, its striking — and strikingly expensive — visuals are pretty undeniable. The main observation I return to again and again while watching the show is just how real it looks compared to other big-budget blockbusters. The production seems to mak...

We've had several iterations of the character since but now, it's radical reinvention time: "Shin Ultraman" arrives from Toho and director Shinji Higuchi to give us an Ultraman for modern times. Much like "Shin Godzilla," "Shin Ultraman" very much succeeds in providing an update to the franchise that can stand up to modern scrutiny. But, in many ways, tha

In a cute gag, the citizens are named Olson Johnson, Howard Johnson, Harriett Johnson, Gabby Johnson, the Reverend Johnson, and Anal Johnson.

The new Netflix film not only revives the teen revenge thriller but gives it a pastel-themed makeover, updating the familiar tropes to fit in with Gen Z sensibilities.

A mashup of '50s-era sitcom tropes and classic horror, "The Munsters" would have seemed ripe for a big-screen take.

The 10 Most Unsettling Moments In Don't Worry Darling  

"Don't Worry Darling" may have failed to impress overall, but it still offers plenty to discuss, including the bonkers ending. Themes about womanhood, autonomy, and technology knot together, accentuated with a dazzling performance from Florence Pugh as Alice. Harry Styles stars opposite as her workaholic husband Jack, alongside a cast that also includes director Olivia Wilde (as Bunny), Chris Pine (as Frank, founder of a community called The Victory Project), and KiKi Layne (Margaret).

Spirit Halloween: The Movie Review: This Halloween Adventure Is Not Very Good, But Still Charming  

Growing up, Halloween was a big deal. I mean, I still consider it a big deal. But there was something extra special about it as a kid, where everything seemed so magically spooky and fun. Where there was one night a year when I could wander around in the dark (yes, when I was a kid, we only went trick or treating at night, unlike now, when kids only show up at my house for candy before the sun sets) dressed as someone else. Where anything was possible. Where the sun went down blazing orange...

Gentlemen Prefer Blondes Called For A Complete Reinvention Of Marilyn Monroe  

1953 was an important year for Marilyn Monroe. She'd been appearing in films since 1947, but '53 is when she became a star. That year, she appeared in three films for 20th Century Fox and one of them stands tall as defining her legendary screen persona: director Howard Hawks' "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes." Monroe plays Lorelei Lee, the titular blonde and one of the film's two co-leads; the other is her brunette best friend Dorothy Shaw (Jane Russell). Lorelei is a bit ditzy and not shy about her e

Has there ever been a movie like "Black Panther: Wakanda Forever"? Even before the first "Black Panther" scored an unlikely seven Academy Award nominations for a comic book movie (including one for Best Picture), Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige had confirmed, on the strength of its box office success (and Marvel's general way of doing business), that a sequel was definitely happening. This was all the way back in March 2018, before "Black Panther" had crossed the billion-dollar mark in its wo...

Why Angel Season 5 Was The Best In The Series  

Not too many series make it to five seasons and those that do often feel like they've run out of gas by the time they get there. It's incredibly rare for a show's final season to be its best and yet, that's somehow the case with "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" spinoff, "Angel." After a strong, but largely episodic freshman outing, the series evolved into a truly great show in its 2nd and 3rd seasons, expanding on Angel's own mythology and exploring the complexities of what it means to fight an unwin
