When the second Death Star exploded in Return of the Jedi, where exactly did its remains end up? We know from the Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker trailers that many of that film’s characters are going to visit the burned-out husk of that mega weapon, but are they going to an unseen section of a familiar planet or uncharted territory?

House on Haunted Hill Comparison

(Welcome to Classically Contemporary, a series where we explore the ways in which new releases echo classic Hollywood or how classic Hollywood continues to influence modern filmmaking.)

In 1959 director William Castle, horror huckster and impresario, released House on Haunted Hill. A throwback to the old dark house thrillers of the 1930s with a devilish performance by ‘50s horror icon, Vincent Price, House on Haunted Hill is the gold standard when it comes to Castle’s work. Forty years later, Hollywood came calling to redo Castle’s films. Dark Castle Entertainment was a studio initially created to solely remake Castle’s films and they started with his best. The 1999 remake of House on Haunted Hill boasted an impressive cast and a liberal use of late-’90s CGI. So how do both hold up 60 and 20 years later, respectively? Let’s dive into a dueling edition of Classically Contemporary.

When it comes to Netflix original movies and television shows, there has been some question as to how the streaming service collects and reports their viewership statistics. There have been a number of impressive reports of viewership for movies like Bright and shows like Stranger Things, but without any details about the metrics by which a given program’s viewership is recorded, no one has fully trusted the company’s internal numbers. But thankfully, some new information gives us a better idea of how to interpret the internal numbers that Netflix records and reports. Read More »

All Elite Wrestling

All industries hit a point where they have to evolve or die. Professional Wrestling isn’t going anywhere anytime soon, but it’s hard to look at All Elite Wrestling (AEW) and not see them as an answer to that need for evolution. The new franchise has exploded since its announcement earlier in the year, and they haven’t done it on their own. Fans who had since grown out of the sport have found themselves coming back in droves to check out the new promotion. Related to that, but perhaps more important: it’s also bringing in a fresh wave of fans who’ve been disinterested in the sport previously. 

There are quite a few factors that have led to AEW’s early success, but here’s a quick look at a few that have stood out.

bringing out the dead scorsese

Can a Martin Scorsese movie be considered truly underrated? Scorsese has produced one well-regarded film after another for the majority of his career, and his bonafides remain untouchable. But nestled within Scorsese’s impressive filmography might be one truly underrated gem: his 1999 effort Bringing Out the Dead. It’s a wild, energetic, but ultimately compassionate work. It was also a major box office flop that barely made a blip and still hasn’t been released on Blu-ray. Twenty years later, Bringing Out the Dead is overdue for a reappraisal.
