Movie Review: Ben Affleck's Gone Girl Lives Up to the Buzz, and Then Some

Originally posted 09/23/2014 03:45PM

December 1988 Was the Best Month for Movies, with Beaches, Rain Man and Working Girl

Originally posted 12/26/2013 10:25AM

A quick glance at the films released in 1988 is a lesson in cinematic history.

The year saw comedy classics like Beetlejuice, Scrooged, The Naked Gun, Coming to America, Big and Big Top Pee-wee along with canon-making movies like Giuseppe Tornatore's heartbreaking ode to film Cinema Paradiso, Hayao Miyazaki's animated My Neighbor Totoro, Pedro Almodóvar's Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown and, of course, Die Hard.

While 1988 was a banner year for movies, one two-week span in particular was perhaps deserving of the title The Best Movie Release Run Ever. That time frame? Christmas 1988.

These 9 Action Heroes Delivered Oscar-Worthy Performances

Originally posted 11/24/2013 05:20PM

Jason Statham has some strong words for the Oscars.

In a new interview with Vanity Fair, the British star took on the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences, arguing that the stuntmen and women behind some of Hollywood’s biggest action films don't get a fair shake when it comes to awards.

"I think it is an overlooked category," Statham told the magazine, especially considering "how much responsibility these coordinators have for some of the greatest entertainment in action movies." He also noted that critics frequently miss the point of over-the-top action films like, say, The Transporter III.
