The Top 20 Animal Movies Ever Made

Some of the best movies ever made are either about beloved pets, have a diverse mix of talking animals, or are about a single animal, either in the starring or a supporting role. In fact, some of the movies that stick with us the most are about animals or have one or more in them. I mean, How to Train Your Dragon made me want a “Toothless” of my own. He’s awesome, right? And who didn’t want to help Free Willy? Sometimes the animals not only deliver a dramatic story, but also make us laugh with their quick wit, like

How ‘Game of Thrones’ Has an Emotional Connection to ‘Shape of Water’

Fox Searchlight’s “The Shape of Water” defies all logic. Not many filmmakers could make audiences swoon and weep at the love story between a mute janitor and a fish-man.

Also defying logic: The fact that those characters are related to Jon Snow, Tyrion Lannister and the Mother of Dragons.

Vanessa Taylor, who wrote the “Shape” script with director Guillermo del Toro, said she feels “nothing but gratitude” to be part of the project and attributes her involvement to “Game of Thrones.”

Taylor was a writer and co-executive producer on the HBO series and says that “Thrones” may at first seem very different from the film. “But the things I love about ‘Game’ are the things I love about this movie. Both use genre elements to explore the idiosyncrasy of human emotions. And even though ‘Game’ is set in a time and place that are foreign, it’s very relatable. It’s the same

Chicago, E.T., Forrest Gump, Grease, Lost and Mean Girls Leaving Netflix in January 2018

Chicago, E.T., Forrest Gump, Grease, Lost and Mean Girls Leaving Netflix in January 2018
This isn't very fetch. Netflix announced Wednesday that Mean Girls and other popular films, including Chicago, E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial, Forrest Gump, Free Willy, Grease, Miss Congeniality and Pulp Fiction will no longer be available to stream beginning in January 2018. The good news is that subscribers still have a few more weeks to work their way through their queues before dozens of new movie titles—including Bring It On, The Godfather, National Treasure and Rent—replace them. Six seasons of ABC's Lost and four seasons of NBC's Law & Order: Special Victims Unit are also going to be removed from Netflix's library; all titles and dates are subject to change, of...

AFI Fest Review: The Shape of Water – The real Aquaman

The Shape of Water is Guillermo del Toro’s Free Willy, and all that entails. That’s a compliment. Del Toro means it and he probably has even more affection for fictional creatures than actual animals. This may be his most passionate film. Elisa (Sally Hawkins) is a janitor in a laboratory that is holding an amphibian man (Doug Jones). When she cleans his tank, she’s kind to him. When Strickland (Michael Shannon) plans to vivisect the creature, Elisa and her friends plan to free him. The relationship between Elisa and the amphibian is heartwarming. Both are vulnerable. He’s an actual more

Film Review: ‘Last Rampage: The Escape of Gary Tison’

Film Review: ‘Last Rampage: The Escape of Gary Tison’
There’s something incontestably impressive about the no-frills efficiency of “Last Rampage: The Escape of Gary Tison,” a sturdily constructed and scrupulously well-cast slice of meat-and-potatoes filmmaking that calls to mind above-average made-for-cable movies of the 1990s. Based on the 1988 book of the same name by James W. Clarke, this engrossing true-crime drama is potently propelled by Robert Patrick’s full-tilt performance as Gary Tison, a purposefully ingratiating sociopath who reveals his true monstrousness to his naïve sons only after they help him escape from Arizona State Prison, and enhanced by solid contributions from supporting players Bruce Davison, Heather Graham and, briefly, the late John Heard. Director Dwight Little (“Free Willy,” “Rapid Fire”), another seasoned pro, seals the deal by keeping the narrative brisk and suspenseful, even while he covers familiar territory.

After starting out with a miscalculated flashforward that gives the game away a tad too early, Little smoothly doubles back to July 30, 1978, to show moody

Robert Patrick Goes on a Murderous Rampage in His Upcoming Thriller Last Rampage

I've got a trailer for a great looking thriller for you to watch today for a film called Last Rampage. The movie has a modern day western vibe as Robert Patrick escapes from prison and goes on a murderous rampage as he is being hunted down by Bruce Davison. The movie also stars Heather Graham and is based on a true story. Here's the synopsis:

In the summer of 1978, convicted murderer Gary Tison (Patrick) and his cellmate Randy Greenawalt (Chris Browning) staged a daring escape from an Arizona State Prison, with the help of Tison’s three teenage sons. Their murderous rampage through the southwestern desert shocked the nation with its brutality. While Sheriff Cooper (Davison) hunted the men down, Tison's wife (Graham) vehemently defended her family in the press.

The movie is an adaptation of the book Last Rampage: The Escape of Gary Tison written by James W. Clarke.

New to Streaming: ‘Punch-Drunk Love,’ ‘Free Fire,’ ‘The Salesman,’ and More

With a seemingly endless amount of streaming options — not only the titles at our disposal, but services themselves — we’ve taken it upon ourselves to highlight the titles that have recently hit platforms. Every week, one will be able to see the cream of the crop (or perhaps some simply interesting picks) of streaming titles (new and old) across platforms such as Netflix, iTunes, Amazon, and more (note: U.S. only). Check out our rundown for this week’s selections below.

Best in Show (Christopher Guest)

Christopher Guest has had an exceptionally strong ’00s with A Mighty Wind and For Your Consideration, and it remains to be seen how his upcoming Mascots will be received, but his arguable peak is still the gloriously funny mockumentary Best in Show. Guest’s other films have lovingly skewered egotistical oddballs and the insanity of subjective or objective criticism, so Best in Show is

1. “To the Bone” (available July 14)

Marti Noxon’s feature directorial debut was a hit out of Sundance, where the Lily Collins-starring drama about eating disorders won over audiences for its nimble ability to tell a compelling dramatic story interspersed with well-earned humor. Sketched from Noxon’s own experiences with anorexia and bolstered by a star turn from the always-reliable Collins, the film is both important and entertaining, and it should be able to reach a very wide audience on the streaming platform. Do not miss it.

2. “Punch-Drunk Love” (available July 1)

Paul Thomas Anderson’s lauded 2002 romantic dramedy features Adam Sandler in one of his few “hey, this guy can really act!” roles and includes some of the auteur’s most indelible shots and richest observations about life and love. It’s a modern classic, and now it can be piped right into your home. I’m lookin’ at your Netflix queue and I just wanna smash it. I just wanna fuckin’ smash it with a sledgehammer and squeeze it. It’s so pretty.

3. “Chasing Coral” (available July 14)

Jeff Orlowski won the U.S. Documentary Audience Award at Sundance earlier this year for his newest feature, a stunning documentary about the fight to protect coral reefs from becoming extinct. Featuring breathtaking and distressing underwater footage, the movie puts into perspective just how endangered coral reefs are and tracks the effort to save them.

4. “Lion” (available July 9)

This heart-wrenching true story was an awards season juggernaut earlier this year, featuring stellar turns from Nicole Kidman and Dev Patel. Based on the unbelievable life of young Saroo Brierley, the feature follows his separation from his family and his startling trip back to them many years later, aided by — for real — Google Maps and his own indomitable heart. Bring tissues.

5. “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” (available July 18)

The very first standalone “Star Wars” spinoff follows a motley crew of rogues, criminals, rebels, and scallawags as they attempt to steal the plans to the monstrous Death Star in a bid to really just totally stick it to the Empire and Darth Vader. Knowing how it ends — they get them! and…some other stuff, too! — doesn’t dilute its tension and creativity, and it features a banger of an ensemble cast. Let this one tide you over before the next entry in the rapidly expanding movie universe.

6. “E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial” (available July 1)

The early part of the month is heavy on kid-leaning classics, from “Free Willy” to “The Mighty Ducks,” but it’s hard to top the potency of Steven Spielberg’s 1982 classic. Gather the whole family around the TV and get heavy on the Reese’s Pieces, and enjoy one of the best films ever made about childhood, friendship, and letting go.

Newswire: Here’s what’s coming to (and going from) Hulu in June

Sequel Month is halfway over, so it’s time to look at the new titles that will be available for streaming on Hulu in June and reveal what vague theme is tying the various movies and TV shows together. Surprisingly, the follow-up to May’s Sequel Month is actually Originals Month, with Hulu getting a handful of older movies that eventually got sequels. Finally, you can see where it all began with the original Free Willy, Ace Ventura, Ghost Rider, Joe Dirt (remember its sequel?), Legally Blonde, Boogeyman, Underworld, and Ong Bak, all of which will be available to stream on Hulu in June. Of course, Originals Month isn’t too exciting without getting to enjoy some sequels as well, so Hulu is throwing in Ong Bak 2, Ong Bak 3, The Pact 2, Underworld Evolution, xXx: State Of The Union, Legally Blonde 2, Boogeyman 2, Boogeyman 3, Ace Ventura ...

Monster Trucks – Review

Even though its several months till the temps rise to signal the start of blockbuster kid-friendly entertainment time, the multiplex chefs are ready to whip up something that will satisfy the appetites of the pre-teen crowds. Here’s a tasty mash-up, much in the vein of other blended concoctions. Several years ago some far-sighted studio marketing exec thought, “Hey, kids love their doggies and they love sports, so how about a pooch that plays basketball?”. Air Bud proved to be quite the franchise, so this new flick should be another “slam dunk”. The tots love their weird creatures (as long as they’re not too scary) and they adore those big-wheeled behemoths that flattened everything in their path. Have some animation veterans sprinkle a bit of magic and slapstick, and you’ve got a candy coated respite from those somber award season contenders. Clear the way for the Monster Trucks.

‘Monster Trucks’ Review: This Kid-Friendly Creature Feature Drafts Off A Dozen Better Movies

‘Monster Trucks’ Review: This Kid-Friendly Creature Feature Drafts Off A Dozen Better Movies
The story of a hunky high school senior who discovers an oil-guzzling sea beast (think “Sesame Street” meets the Kraken), and then knots its tentacles around the chassis of his custom jalopy in a perverse attempt to pimp his ride, “Monster Trucks” seems like such an impossibly stupid idea for a movie that it’s easy to forget how it derives from a rather proud history of Hollywood entertainment. After all, there have been any number of studio spectacles about a young boy, or a teenage boy, or — in this case — an obviously grown-ass man doing a hilarious job of pretending to be a teenage boy — whose frustrated small town existence is turned upside down when he befriends a strange and unexpectedly sweet creature that teaches him about growing up or whatever. “Monster Trucks,” however aimless and confused it may be, rolls down a road paved by verified hits like “E.T.,
