Peter Jackson has frequently been asked what his favorite The Lord of the Rings movie is. But rarely has he been asked what his favorite scene from the fantasy epics he shot is. So of course only extreme Lord of the Rings nerd Stephen Colbert could think to ask that question, and to score the director in a parody of the fantasy series made on the very sets and locations where Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit films were shot.

Dungeons & Dragons just got a whole lot stranger. Four cast members of Netflix’s hit sci-fi show Stranger Things sat down for a game of the tabletop RPG for a special actual play session, lead by Wizards of the Coast principal story designer Chris Perkins.

Even if it’s been many years since you’ve seen Requiem for a Dream, director Darren Aronofsky‘s gut-punch of a movie, you can probably hear the film’s most famous piece of music in your head if you read the words “Lux Aeterna.” That catchy, eerie song comes courtesy of composer Clint Mansell, and since Requiem for a Dream is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, the Kronos Quartet has reconvened (in a socially-distanced setting, thanks to the pandemic) to bring that haunting tune back into the forefront of your mind once again. Check it out below. Read More »
What do you get when you take three of Hollywood’s most creative minds – Robert Zemeckis, Guillermo del Toro, and Kenya Barris – and set them loose on an adaptation of a Roald Dahl novel?

If there’s one thing that can be singled out as the key to comedy, it’s timing. And Sacha Baron Cohen certainly timed his teaser for his Borat sequel right, releasing a video from the “Republic of Kazakhstan” praising President Trump’s performance in last night’s U.S. presidential debates.

Bong Joon-ho‘s Parasite has become the highest-grossing international film of the year in the United States, and for good reason: the film, which won the Palme d’Or (the top prize) at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, arrived with a level of hype that we haven’t seen in quite some time outside of blockbuster circles. And since it’s one of the best movies of the past decade, it’s strong enough to carry all of that hype on its shoulders and still deliver on every level.
In a new video, Bong Joon-ho and actor Choi Woo-shik (who plays the poor Kim family’s only son, Kim Ki-woo) break down some of the key sequences in the movie, detailing how nothing – not even a passing bus in the background – is accidental. Read More »

HBO’s Westworld series has already ingrained us in the futuristic corporate world with Delos Incorporated and their revolutionary approach to truly immersive experiences.
