“Based on an actual lie” is the introduction to writer-director Lulu Wang’s (actually true) story. This touching but bittersweet family dramedy will make you laugh and cry as you watch this family bond together around their matriarch. What isn’t a lie is The Farewell deserves to be considered one of the best films of the year (so far).
“Ask any racer. Any real racer. It don’t matter if you win by an inch or a mile. Winning’s winning.” – Dominic Toretto, The Fast and The Furious, 2001.
From street racing and stolen trucks to taking on international drug lords and terrorists, The Fast and The Furious is one of the most successful and versatile film franchises ever. With a combined gross of $5 billion, the success is hard to argue against. In honor of the first Fast and Furious spin-off, Hobbs and Shaw, I thought it was time to take a look in the rear view mirror and rank the Fast franchise.
After a small spree of Westerns, Quentin Tarantino returns to modern history… sort of. Tarantino tackles the Hollywood of 1969. Steve McQueen is still cool. Bruce Lee is kicking ass on movie sets, and hippies have descended on Los Angeles. Tarantino balances an interesting spread of characters and ideas. Fortunately, the famed director once again proves that he can juggle nonsense with great ease.
So sit back and take a ride back into 1969.
When Fast and Furious is attached to your title, you already know what to expect. In Hobbs and Shaw, a hulking big man and a stylish British guy team up to drive big trucks, smash people and make things explode.
Just another day at the office.
Movie and television studios, nerds and pop culture enthusiasts descend upon San Diego for the annual comic convention. It is here where future movie plans are announced, causing fans to go crazy with cheers. Directors, producers and actors answer fans queries about previous works and ask their burning questions that they haven’t posed on social media.
This year did not disappoint with movie news and brand new trailers!
After Avengers: Endgame and Spider-Man: Far From Home closing out the Infinity Saga section the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Many storylines reached their completion, fan favorites said good-bye, and we had our hearts broken as some heroes made the ultimate sacrifice (R.I.P. Tony Stark). So what does a post-Endgame world look like? Where do our remaining heroes go from here?
Marvel Studios made their return to the infamous Hall H at San Diego Comic Con 2019 to help silence fans’ questions and ramp up excitement for what’s to come.
On May 3, 2002, one of Marvel Comics’ most popular superheroes graced the silver screen in Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man. Stan Lee and Steve Ditko’s young aspiring scientist imbued with superhuman abilities after being bitten by a radioactive spider. Since then, we’ve gone through three men wearing the outfit and two reboots, making the character progressively younger. With the release of Spider-Man: Far From Home, I thought it would be a good time to rank the web-slinger’s big screen adventures.
Similar to Ant-Man and The Wasp, this MCU adventure had to follow up to a massive ensemble Avengers event. While it wasn’t the best adventure, it was entertaining to hold fans until Endgame. After Avengers: Endgame, where does one of the most beloved and youngest MCU go from here? Vacation.
But when you are an Avenger, there is no such thing as a quiet getaway.
June 30, 2019. This day means we are somehow halfway through 2019. Where does the time go? Instead of waiting to make an End of Year Top 10 list, I wanted to look back at my favorites of the year so far.
I’ll admit that the original Child’s Play scared me as a child. As a guy with a younger sister who had many dolls around, you can imagine why. I blame my active imagination. However, times have changed and Chucky has changed with them. The original incarnation of our favorite murder doll was possessed with the soul of a serial killer, but maybe the filmmakers of this reboot realized voodoo magic is too much cultural appropriation in these modern times.
So what do you turn to besides magic? Science and smart-home technology to make a hilarious miniature killer.
