Back in January of 2018, the family film sequel Paddington 2 became the best reviewed movie of all time on Rotten Tomatoes. With 163 reviews from critics (at the time), the movie managed to maintain a 100% score. Even in the years since then, the movie reached over 240 reviews and kept a perfect rating. That’s no easy feat when there’s so much subjectivity involved in film criticism. Unfortunately, all good things must come to an end, because a recently posted negative review has ruined the 100% critical rating that Paddington 2 earned, and the movie is no longer at the top of the pack.

Many people dunked on the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice title when it was first revealed to the public, and even co-writer Chris Terrio recently made it clear that he definitely did not want that title to be used.

While Polka-Dot Man has weaseled his way into some fans’ hearts (read: mine), another character from James Gunn‘s upcoming comic book movie sequel The Suicide Squad seems to have captured the attention of the world in the wake of the film’s most recent trailer: King Shark, the massive half-man, half-shark beast who eats human beings whole and gnaws on human skulls for kicks.
However, in the pages of DC Comics, King Shark has often been depicted as a hammerhead, not a Great White. So what’s up with the curveball, Mr. Gunn? Read his answer below.

Tim Allen‘s most famous role at The Walt Disney Company is likely that of Buzz Lightyear in Pixar’s Toy Story franchise. But the Home Improvement star also stepped into another famous character for The House of Mouse in The Santa Clause. Aside from causing people to endlessly misspell Santa Claus, the movie turned Tim Allen into a Christmas icon and launched an entire franchise for the studio that gets played over and over again around the holidays.

Borat Subsequent Moviefilm is a comedic triumph that builds upon the insanity of the first mockumentary, but takes it to a new level thanks to the heightened ridiculousness of our current political and social climate. A big part of that success comes from the surprisingly touching story that develops between Borat (Sacha Baron Cohen) and his teenage daughter, played phenomenally by Bulgarian actress Maria Bakalova. But how did director Jason Woliner find such a finely tuned comedic talent who could keep up with Sacha Baron Cohen and trick unsuspecting subjects, including the bridge troll with a law degree known as Rudy Giuliani?

Christopher Nolan‘s Tenet is all about going backwards and forwards in time in a manner more complex and visually stimulating than any other time travel movie before. So it only makes sense that the filmmaker’s breakout movie Memento, which also played with narrative chronology, planted the seed of what he would bring with his future blockbuster.
While making the publicity rounds for the home video release of Tenet, Christopher Nolan discussed how the opening scene of Memento wasn’t just a way to introduce the audience to the film’s non-chronological storytelling. The scene also harbored the filmmaker’s larger ambition to bring that kind of temporal narrative style into the blockbuster arena for the movie that would become Tenet. Read More »
The Harry Potter book series took the world by storm and the story of The Boy Who Lived was a phenomenon by the late 1990s. Of course, that meant the books were destined to be adapted for the big screen, and director Chris Columbus was the one who was tapped to take a crack at it for Warner Bros. Pictures. The pressure was on for the Home Alone director to deliver the fantastical world that fans have been imagining in their heads for years. That’s why an early cut of the movie screened for audiences was almost as long as the theatrical cut of Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, which came close to hitting the three-hour mark.
