First Rule of ‘Fight Club’

Brad Pitt

Brad Pitt

It is hard to believe but Fight Club is now more than 20 years old. David Fincher’s magnum opus on men, insomnia, and soap opened in theaters on October 15, 1999. The controversial film quickly became a cult favorite and soon was one of the most quoted films of its era.

But that was 20 years ago. One of its two stars, Brad Pitt, now jokes that he no longer even remembers the first rule of Fight Club. (We would tell him what it is, but that would break the first rule of Fight Club.) Honored with the Maltin Modern Master Award at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival this week, Pitt accepted his prize with a very funny speech where he marked the passing of time in his career by acknowledging all the things he is now too old to do...

Color Out of Space

Richard Stanley is a name many mainstream moviegoers may not be aware of, but for certain genre fans, it’s a name that brings great joy. The director behind Hardware and Dust Devil hasn’t made a feature-length movie since his ill-fated adaptation of The Island of Doctor Moreau in 1996. Until now that is. Stanley is back and, this time, he’s tackling an H.P. Lovecraft adaptation in the form of Color Out of Space. Just for good measure, he’s brought Nicolas Cage along for the ride. The end result is a decidedly weird, uncompromising Lovecraftian technicolor nightmare.

Color Out of Space centers on the Gardner family who is living the quiet life far removed from the city...

Defends ‘Tropic Thunder’ Blackface

Defends 'Tropic Thunder' Blackface

Defends ‘Tropic Thunder’ Blackface

Ben Stiller’s Hollywood studio satire Tropic Thunder ambushed moviegoers nearly 12 years ago. And yet after all this time, there’s one aspect of this wild ride of a movie we can’t seem to fully comprehend — Stiller’s decision to put Robert Downey Jr. in blackface for the role of Kirk Lazarus, and RDJ’s subsequent agreement to this decision. Downey Jr. addresses the issue in an episode of The Joe Rogan Experience podcast, in support of his equally-baffling Dolittle. While he understands that his role in Tropic Thunder ruffled feathers in a major way, he does his best to justify the thought process behind the problematic character choice:

[Ben] knew exactly what the vision for this was, he executed it, it was impossible to not hav...

Knives Out’s Killer Cast

Knives Out's Killer Cast

Knives Out’s Killer Cast

Alongside Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood and Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman, one of the most ridiculously stacked casts of 2019 belonged to Rian Johnson’s Knives Out. For his whodunit, the director of Star Wars: The Last Jedi assembled a group of actors that included up-and-comers, talented veterans, Oscar nominees and winners. But it all started with Daniel Craig, and Rian Johnson credits the James Bond actor for getting Knives Out’s killer cast, as he explained:

In addition to being the star of the film, it seems that Daniel Craig was instrumental in not only getting Knives Out made, but also turning it into the star-studded affair it eventually became. This makes sense given the workings of the business...

Jumanji: The Next Level

 Jumanji: The Next Level

Jumanji: The Next Level

This shouldn’t have to be said, but this feature will be loaded with spoilers for the new movie Jumanji: The Next Level. We literally will be discussing the movie’s ending, so stop reading now if you do not want to be spoiled.

All of the Jumanji movies, up to this point, have been standalone adventures. This includes the Robin Williams original, as well as the sci-fi spinoff Zathura (which was disconnected, but basically “Jumanji in Space”). That has changed with the ending of Jumanji: The Next Level. The game is being altered, and that will have a major impact on the movies to come.

When Sony decided to bring the Jumanji property off of the shelf for a reimagining in 2017, the remake/reboot wasn’t thought of as being a franchise launcher...
