'Godless': Why Netflix's Brutal, Timely Western Is a Must-See
"This here's the paradise of the locust, the lizard, the snake. It's the land of the bleeding rifle."

So snarls murderous outlaw Frank Griffin in the monologue that gives Godless, the new seven-episode Netflix miniseries premiering on November 22nd, its title.

The Top Five Bruno Kirby Movie Roles of His Career

Bruno Kirby is a great supporting actor, but that’s about where his skill stops. He hit that ceiling a while ago and without any disrespect to the man that’s where the talent he has is at its best. Kirby is the kind of guy you rely on to be there to bolster the other actors up, someone that doesn’t so much make people look better but rather helps the picture to flow the way it should. He’s played some very influential characters but the fact remains that he’s still a pillar in pretty much any movie he plays, whether it’s

‘Marvel’s Runaways’: The 6 Best Changes from the Comics to the Hulu Series
For comic book fans, the premiere of a new adaptation of a favorite work is always a nerve-wracking thing. The hope is that the story will be captured well by the producers, while the reality is the history of comics adaptations is littered with massive disappointments.

So it’s a relief to see that so far, Hulu’s adaptation of the Brian K. Vaughn-created “Runaways” has lived up to the expectations of Marvel fans, while not being shy about making some significant changes to the story and the characters. However, there’s no reason to fear these changes, as many of them prove to be not necessarily an improvement on the original story, but clearly valuable when it comes to creating an episodic drama out of it.

Beyond updating the technology for today’s teen use of smartphones and Lyft, here are some of the best changes so far. While

‘She’s Gotta Have It’ Shows That Spike Lee’s Still Pissed About the ‘Malcolm X’ Oscars Loss
Spike Lee is not one to let sleeping dogs lie. Not only is the outspoken writer and director ready to remake classic films, but he’s also willing to revisit his own work. And in updating his old work for modern audiences — quite well, it turns out — he’s eager to re-air old grievances.

Specifically, he wants people to know that Denzel Washington should’ve won the Oscar for his performance in Lee’s 1992 film, “Malcolm X.” And he’s using “She’s Gotta Have It” to get the word out.

In the opening episode of Lee’s new Netflix original series, Nola Darling (DeWanda Wise) brings her friend and lover Mars Blackmon (Anthony Ramos) into her apartment. Leaning against one wall is a floor-to-ceiling canvas painting of Denzel Washington as Malcolm X.

‘Anne of Green Gables’ Review: Growing Pains and Poor Decisions Bring Angst to This Adolescent Outing
With Thanksgiving comes the return of Canada’s most famous literary orphan to PBS with the second “Anne of Gables” installment. “The Good Stars,” the second film in a trilogy, continues the adventures of poor orphan girl Anne Shirley (Ella Ballentine), who’s finally found a home with elderly couple Matthew (Martin Sheen) and Marilla Cuthbert (Sara Botsford) at Green Gables. When last we saw Anne, she had settled into her new home and made a bosom friend out of Diana (Julia Lalonde). Taking on the adolescent phase of Lucy Maud Montgomery’s Edwardian novel series, “The Good Stars” parallels the growing pains that Anne herself is going through as she becomes a teenager.

Looking back on the franchise’s unprecedented financial success, popularity and critical acclaim, the Marvel Cinematic Universe can be seen as the blueprint of the modern superhero movie.

One of the most anticipated feature promoted in the McU – other than all of those Stan Lee cameos – is the post-credit scene: one final, short scene to end the movie with.
