Eyes Wide Shut Christmas

‘Tis the season for Grinches and Gremlins, for leg lamps and Clark Griswold, and for the annual debate over the quality (or lack thereof) of Love, Actually – an argument that has grown more boring (and annoying) than the annual declaration that Die Hard is actually a Christmas movie. But in this house, ’tis the season for Stanley Kubrick; be it the wintry and claustrophobic familial terror of The Shining, or the harrowing yuletide sex odyssey taken by Tom Cruise in Eyes Wide Shut. Kubrick’s final film hardly needs justification for its place in the Christmas movie canon (many others have successfully argued for this classification). What could – and will – be argued, however, is that Eyes Wide Shut is the best Christmas movie of our lifetime. Read More »

Tom Cruise took a break from cheating death to offer-up an important public service announcement: turn your god damn motion smoothing off, people.

christopher mcquarrie man of steel 2

What will Christopher McQuarrie do next? The Mission: Impossible – Fallout director has a lot of clout now, but two projects he won’t be tackling are Man of Steel 2 and Green Lantern. Which is a shame, because he’d likely knock both out of the park. In a new interview, McQuarrie reveals that the chances of him directing Man of Steel 2 are unlikely, and that he actually already turned down a Green Lantern movie once before.
