The James Bond movie franchise has been turning out movies since 1963, when Sean Connery first embodied the role in Dr. No. In that time only six men have played the part, and they've all brought something to it. The central tension among their choices is whether to adopt the version that Bond's creator, Ian Fleming, carved out in his novels or bring a freshness to the part. (Sometimes, leaning into Fleming's version is that freshness.) Here are all the actors who've played James Bond, ranked.

Yep, 40 years since Walter Hill's vision of gang culture in NYC first appeared. The movie holds up after all these years, and there's even a run of action figures from one:12 coming out in short order to help commemorate. It's been far too long since I last watched it, I'll be firing up the director's cut this week!
Let's just say that you are a fan of movies from the 70s and 80s. Let's just suggest that you like mashups. Maybe, you like them getting weirder and weirder as they rumble on. You have found your Nirvana now. Enjoy.

There's a new Ghostbusters movie in the works. Entertainment Weekly has learned exclusively that Jason Reitman will direct and co-write an upcoming film set in the world that was saved decades previously by the proton pack-wearing working stiffs in the original 1984 movie, which was directed by his father, Ivan Reitman.

It had big stars, it foretold virtual reality, and the director was the special-effects wizard behind 2001: A Space Odyssey.
It's also one of my all-time favorites. And it has a fascinating story behind it.
Rolling Stone Magazine had a survey of the best guitar players. Dr. Brian May came in at fourth best. Here is his take on the movie, his guitar, and his life.

So a couple of decades ago, you saw the movie. Jack Ryan was not played by Harrison Ford yet. Sean Connery wasn't a nasty old fart yet. It was a very compelling story. Now, you have a chance to see the blood and guts behind the movie.

We've discovered a midnight movie that's slipped under our radar all these years. It's just as retro, hypnotic, and freaky as say, the cult musical Rocky Horror Picture Show - but you might even say it's a little more chic? It's called Dr. Caligari (1989), and it's going to be our new favorite Halloween classic.
Full movie link and embed after the jump.

Some closing shots provide unexpected answers to big questions. Others let questions dangle endlessly; leaving it to the audience to decide for themselves how the film closed out. Some provide resolve. Others double down on tragedy. Below we've assembled the fifty best, ranked. Enjoy.
If you think you're the only fan of movies so bad they're good, think again. Every state in the US has its own favorite terrible film. These films - you know, those bad movies that you love to hate and hate to love - definitely aren't masterpieces, but they bring about great nostalgia and comfort when you watch them.
The director famously refused to give his interpretation of the sci-fi masterpiece.
However, in a telephone interview in 1980, he allows for a few interesting nuggets.

It's not Monday but it is the first day back to work after a long weekend for many, and we haven't done one of these for a while... so for your consideration today we have Penelope Spheeris' opus to punk angst, Suburbia, featuring a very young Mike B. the Flea with performances by DI, the Vandals, and TSOL. Either join those nutty TR kids in their hijinks or drag your ass into the office, whatevs.
