Ever since they wrote Good Will Hunting 18 years ago, Matt Damon and Ben Affleck have been one of Hollywood's most well-known bromances. But no bromance is complete without some healthy competition, which is why we've gone back through the years since their first Oscar win and looked at their careers. With Samantha Highfill representing Matt Damon in one corner, and Joshua Rivera representing Ben Affleck in the other, here's how the fight breaks down: 1997 Damon: Good Will Hunting Sure, both Damon and Affleck won an Oscar for Best Original Screenplay, but only one of them was nominated for an Oscar for Best Actor, »

Gone Girl, 2014.
Directed by David Fincher.
With his wife’s disappearance having become the focus of an intense media circus, a man sees the spotlight turned on him when it’s suspected that he may not be innocent.
David Fincher, a favourite among many film critics and fans, has made a name for himself with really good adaptations of really good books. From the incredible Fight Club back in 1999 and The Social Network a few years back to the middling Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Fincher has proven that he knows what he is doing when it comes to taking the novel source material and putting it up on the big screen. This is on show once again with Gone Girl, adapted from the »

Unearthed Films and Plotdigger Films are proud to announce the DVD release of Ryan Nicholson’s (Gutterballs, Hanger, Live Feed) extreme horror Collar; which sees a rookie cop starts her shift like any other but soon it will all change for the worse. A derelict with a reputation of satanic violence, attacks the officer and collars her with a dog leash which is just the start of his abusive ritual.
Collar stars Nick Principe, who played Chromeskull in Laid to Rest 1 and 2, as a satanic derelict with a taste for human flesh who terrorizes skid row’s prostitutes, junkies and homeless, escalating his level of violence after he abducts a rookie cop played by Aidan Dee (Caprica, A Dangerous Man), on a routine patrol. The film also stars Mackenzie Murdock (Father’s Day, Manborg), Ronald Thompson (Hanger) and Mihola Terzik (Gutterballs).
Shot on location in Vancouver, BC, “Collar” also features »

Although Tony Stark is indeed inimitable and his Iron Man alter-ego formidable, you don’t immediately think of him as “bad-ass” when putting together a list of words and terms to describe him. But don’t be fooled – he really is.
The man has some seriously giant-sized gonads, coming across as truly fearless at times, and is prepared to put his body (and indeed his life) on the line with or without his trademark armour.
In his four major movie appearances to date (Iron Man, Iron Man 2, Iron Man 3 and The Avengers), Tony Stark has saved more people through bravery and sheer bad-assery than most – even outshining the real big guns like Hulk and Thor on occasions. While he does come across as cocky and narcissistic, there is absolutely no denying the fact that he is also perfectly capable of being very selfless and noble. In »

You know, at the very beginning I was a fan of Law & Order: Svu. It probably goes without saying that I’m not inclined to be a fan of anything after 40 or 50 seasons (or whatever this show is on), but beyond the general boredom of a show that has outlived its usefulness, Svu started going downhill after two seasons, and simply wasn’t the same show anymore.
Well, whatever, such is my humble anyway.
As if to specifically mess with me, the show is now forcing me to watch it again, as Donal Logue has been given a recurring role. Fresh off of three of the coolest shows, and roles, you’re going to run into (Copper, Vikings, and Sons of Anarchy), Logue will continue the role as acting commander of the Svu.
The show returns on the 30th, and the Grey’s Anatomy-esque fun continues as Mariska Hargitay‘s character… »

This week it finally happened, Lovefilm is no more, it has now been completely consumed by its Amazon overlords and is now known as Amazon Prime and something that operates totally through your Amazon account should you have one.
At first this was a baffling experience, there was rumours of a lot more new content being added and when you logged into the Ios app for Lovefilm/Amazon post switchover, suddenly you were faced with A Lot of new content, things like Aliens, Congo, Cujo, Invaders from Mars and lots of HBO shows including Eastbound and Down, Enlightened and the Sopranos as well as Community in the ‘Recently Added’ section.
Of course this was too good to be true and you could add these to your watchlist but then not actually watch them. So when things calmed down and you logged back in, these titles it turned out were part »

Zachary Leeman: Let’s start by breaking down how you started in the business? How did you first become a paid screenwriter? Explain the hustle to me and to aspiring screenwriters that may be reading this.
John Sullivan: Growing up, I thought I wanted to be a novelist. I read voraciously. My addictions were mostly Stephen King, Dean Koontz, James Herbert and the occasional Tom Clancy actioner. I was a little too young to understand the political thrillers, but I tried. I attempted a few half-written books, and they were terrible. It wasn’t until I was 14 or so that I understood what a screenwriter did. I was an enormous movie fan.
I never played sports, I wasn’t incredibly social and so I watched 2-3 movies a day. »
