best actor 2019

Grab your Dracula cape, bust out the candy corn, and light all the pumpkins. It’s the spookiest season of the year! I’m talking, of course, about awards season. As 2019 draws to an end, we’re rolling into awards season, where some of the year’s best films will be recognized by voters across the board. This awards season is resulting in a surprisingly large amount of potential awards movies featuring two male leads – Once Upon a Time In HollywoodThe LighthouseA Beautiful Day in the NeighborhoodFord v Ferrari. This has resulted in the respective films (and their respective stars) having to decide which filed to campaign in: Best Actor or Best Supporting Actor. The results may surprise you. Or they may not surprise you at all, since some of them seem a bit obvious once you see the movies in question.

creepshow ratings

It’s official: Creepshow is a huge hit for Shudder, the horror streaming service owned by AMC Networks. The TV adaptation of the George A. Romero/Stephen King horror classic has been setting records since its September 26 premiere, which means it’s probably only a matter of time before a second season is announced. The series is the brainchild of special effects make-up artists and filmmaker Greg Nicotero and has been rolling out weekly with new tales of terror.

Joker Bathroom Scene

Director Todd Phillips and his longtime cinematographer Lawrence Sher knew their latest film, Joker, would have more eyes on it than usual. But neither expected the runaway success train it has become, winning a prestigious Venice Film Festival award, making over $740 million at the worldwide box-office, and attracting awards heat for its star, Joaquin Phoenix.

Sher, who’s an economics major with a background in still photography, has been working with Phillips since the Hangover trilogy. Before the duo’s first collaboration on that hit series, Sher shot Garden State and I Love You Man, to name just a few. This year, he played on a huge, beautiful canvas with Godzilla: King of the Monsters, and was able to make a comic book movie that’s a throwback to the ’70s and the Martin Scorsese movies that made him want to be a cinematographer in the first place. It’s a big year for Sher, who recently talked to us about some of Joker‘s most memorable sequences, working with Joaquin Phoenix, and the line between fantasy and reality in the movie.

This interview contains major spoilers for Joker.

Best Quentin Tarantino Scenes

Over the last quarter-century, Quentin Tarantino has managed to occupy a very unique spot within the American film industry. He’s one of only a handful of filmmakers who are as recognizable to people the world over as many movie stars. How many directors are known on a one-name basis, aside from Steven Spielberg? Tarantino is similarly popular, and that meteoric rise to fame started with the theatrical release of his second film, Pulp Fiction, unveiled 25 years ago this month to unsuspecting audiences in the United States.

In honor of Pulp Fiction’s 25th anniversary, we’re counting down the 20 best scenes in Tarantino’s films, including a couple from his summer-2019 release Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. As with all lists, this ranking is legally binding and official, so let’s get into it.

michael shawver interview

It’s been almost four months since a Marvel Cinematic Universe movie debuted in theaters, and it’ll be just over six months until the next one (Black Widow) enters. But it isn’t enough for Marvel to dominate box offices and become the center of attention while their movies are in theaters – they’re dominating the cultural conversation on their off time, too.

A recent wave of backlash against superhero films has been raging for weeks, and now Bob Iger, the CEO of Marvel owner The Walt Disney Company, is now putting on his Avengers swim trunks and wading into the conversation to defend his studio’s movies against the comments of old-guard Hollywood icons like Martin Scorsese and Francis Ford Coppola. Read Iger’s quotes below.
