'Deadpool' Review & Roundup: Ryan Reynolds Finds a Franchise Worthy of His Talents

7 February 2016 12:03 PM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

With R-rated Marvel comic movie "Deadpool," Ryan Reynolds has finally found the Hollywood role that has thus far eluded him. He was raw and real in the well-reviewed solo drama "Buried." And you can see glimpses of his comic talent opposite Sandra Bullock in the hit romantic comedy "The Proposal," Jeff Daniels in "Paper Man," and Ben Mendelsohn in last year's "Mississippi Grind."  After several attempts at scaling a comic book movie in Marvel's' "Blade: Trinity" and "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" and DC's horrific "Green Lantern," Reynolds has landed a winner at last. With a raucous witty script by Rhett Reese & Paul Wernick ("Zombieland"), Reynolds comes into his own as strange and sarcastic post-military mercenary Wade Wilson, who meets and falls in love with his match ("Homeland" star Morena Baccarin) before joining up with the wrong group of »

Bye Instant Watch: Terms of Endearment, Tom Cruise, Big Fish...

28 January 2016 12:23 PM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

What's leaving Netflix Instant Watch?

We should probably start covering that. It seems like a boring topic but we jazz up your public service announcements. I'll close my eyes and play with the control bar and wherever I freeze the movie I'll share the image. This weekend is your last chance to watch these films for free for who knows how long. Since there are Oscar titles in the mix, perhaps you can fill some holes in your Oscar lists of Things To See or Rewatch.

Ready? In chronological order of their film year, seven films leaving Netflix on February 1st...

Terms Of Endearment (1983)

Emma: I've got some good news. I'm unofficially pregnant. I mean I haven't got the tests back but I'm never late.

Aurora: [Pause] Well... No, I don't understand."

Look how crazy young Jeff Daniels is! Shirley Maclaine is so hilarious and complicated in this movie -- that »

Someone brilliantly re-cut 'Dumb and Dumber' as an Oscar-winning drama

26 January 2016 11:08 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Jeff Daniels is already in one Best Picture nominee this year, The Martian. But what if he had a second ace in his sleeve? I give you the re-cut, Oscar-worthy trailer for the devastating drama Dumb and Dumber.  Oh, the tears are falling. Thank you, Mashable. To be fair, Lloyd Christmas is "overcoming the odds" by pulling off that haircut, cooperating with Harry Dunne, and surviving a movie's worth of idiotic hijinks without perishing. You know else appreciates the deep integrity and heartwarming drama of Dumb and DumberJon Hamm. Check out our interview with the Mad Men star, who admitted he's seen the movie dozens of times.   »

Adam McKay and Charles Randolph (working from a book by Michael Lewis) for McKay's The Big Short, Nick Hornby (novel by Colm Tóibín) for John Crowley's Brooklyn, Phyllis Nagy (book by Patricia Highsmith) for Todd Haynes' Carol and Emma Donoghue's adaptation of her own novel for Lenny Abrahamson's Room, join Drew Goddard (book by Andy Weir) for Ridley Scott's The Martian as the five Best Adapted Screenplay Oscar nominees. Aaron Sorkin's adaptation of Walter Isaacson's biography for Danny Boyle's Steve Jobs is a glaring omission by the Academy voters.
