When you look at lists of the greatest driving movies ever, you’d be forgiven for thinking that Hollywood doesn’t make films about cars any more. Typically dominated by classics like The Driver (1978), Bullitt (1968) Duel and Vanishing Point (both 1971), it might seem like the genre peaked decades ago. So, we thought it was about time to set the record straight. Yes, no matter how many imitations come along it’s unlikely that the original films will ever be knocked from pole position, but here are ten films from
this millennium that could give them a run for their money. (more…)
“No one in the world ever gets what they want and that is beautiful” That’s Wade’s second pass phrase to login to the OASIS, as he is free-falling into brooding teenage depression. That one line should resonate loud and proud in every fans heads as they leave Ready Player One.
Before taking a comparative deep dive into this, be WARNED, this take is SPOILER heavy and is very much intended for those who have seen the movie and have read/familiar with the book. (more…)
Deadpool was a smashing success for Fox Studios when it was released back in February, 2016 and fans have been chomping at the bit for a follow-up.

If Star Wars: The Force Awakens taught us anything, it’s that there’s no “happily every after” in the Star Wars universe. Empires fall, but they rise again. And like empires, republics rise and fall again. A cynic would add, “Especially not when there’s tens of billions of dollars to be made from Stars Wars fans, diehard or otherwise,” but cynicism has no place – or at least shouldn’t have a place – when it comes to writer-director Rian Johnson’s (Looper, The Brothers Bloom, Brick) follow-up, Star Wars: The Last Jedi, the middle chapter in a third trilogy that will eventually span nine films. Temporarily borrowing the directing reins from J.J. Abrams (Abrams will direct the ninth and presumably final entry in the Skywalker Saga), Johnson has succeeded beyond even the highest expectations, delivering a Star Wars not for 2017, not for 2019, but for a soon-to-be-classic that will rightly take its place with A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back as the best the Star Wars franchise has to offer.

Nine years ago, two onscreen heroes had a brief conversation after the credits rolled for Iron Man. That one, small interaction between Robert Downey Jr.’s Tony Stark and Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury has spawned a plotline that has transcended numerous individual movies and is about to meet its uncertain end. Ladies and gentlemen, we give you the first ever trailer for Avengers: Infinity War! (more…)
We’ve seen countless iterations of Batman’s greatest rogue, The Joker. We’ve seen Jack Nicholson in Tim Burton’s Batman, Heath Ledger in the Chris Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy, and recently Jared Leto in Suicide Squad (and the upcoming Gotham City Sirens movie). Of course, there’s the OG from the Adam West series, Caesar Romero and countless voice actors for various DC animated movies (Mark Hamill remains king though!). The Joker is without a doubt one of the most fascinating characters throughout comic book history. However, we really haven’t learned much of his origin or his history. Until now…
