With ‘Fury,’ Brad Pitt Cements Himself as American Cinema’s Top Nazi Killer

David Ayers’ Fury opens on a battlefield pockmarked with the waste of war, charred bodies laid out in broken circles around burned-out tanks. It is quiet. There is a literal lack of color thanks to what seems to be an early morning fog. A Nazi riding a white horse strolls through the shot, surveying the seemingly lifeless landscape. He pauses in front of a Sherman tank, its cannon emblazoned with “FURY” in white paint. A figure emerges from within, jumps onto the man on horseback, and stabs him in the face. This is Brad Pitt’s Don “Wardaddy” Collier, and he means business. … Read More

Hey there reader, been to the movies lately? If the box office reports are any indication, I’m guessing not — and who can blame you?

Hollywood lost one of its last lions yesterday, as the legendary Lauren Bacall died at 89. She had a long and storied career, performing on film, radio, stage, and television, but America first knew her as the whisky-voiced marvel who taught Humphrey Bogart how to whistle. Bacall and Bogart were just one of the many Hollywood couples whose onscreen relationship became an off-screen one; let’s take a look at their famous pairing, and those of a few more great movie couples who kept their chemistry going off the set. … Read More

5 Movies That Should Have Been Rated PG-13 — And 5 That Shouldn’t Have

Thirty years ago this month, John Milius’ Cold War wet dream Red Dawn rolled into theaters, helping launch the careers of Patrick Swayze, Charlie Sheen, Lea Thompson, and Jennifer Grey. But it also launched a significant chapter in movie history: it was the first film released to theaters carrying the new PG-13 rating, a Goldlocks-ish “just right” nestled between the PG and the R. But as with all things MPAA-related, the PG-13 became a giant clusterfuck in the three decades hence, as its desirability led studios and filmmakers to push the rating to its absolute breaking point — loading up their PG-13 blockbusters with dead bodies while the ratings agency’s bean counters tallied “F-words” and bare butts. So to celebrate this dubious anniversary, let’s take a look back at ten cases where the 30-year-old rating was woefully… Read More

Why Isn’t ‘Edge of Tomorrow’ Director Doug Liman a Household Name?

The overwhelmingly positive reviews that are greeting the new Tom Cruise actioner Edge of Tomorrow (out, erm, tomorrow) are a hearty mix of enthusiasm and surprise — enthusiasm at the film’s brainy wit and overall inventiveness, surprise that such elements are contained in such a blandly titled, seemingly generic Summer Action Blockbuster. Some have decided that the responsible party here is Tom Cruise, and the appreciations have followed suit; LA Weekly’s Amy Nicholson dubs him “our last real movie star,” Movies.com’s Jacob S. Hall calls him “the greatest living movie star.” Fair enough; Cruise has a long and storied filmography, a history of well-chosen collaborators, and he’s terrific in the film. Yet oddly little of this high praise has made its way to Edge of Tomorrow’s director, Doug Liman. Then again, this is nothing new; Liman is one of the most successful and reliable directors in Hollywood who somehow still has not become a household name. … Read More
