Taylor Swift’s 91 Best Lyrics of All Time

Taylor Swift’s 91 Best Lyrics of All Time
Taylor Swift is set to release her sixth studio album, Reputation, on Friday, Nov. 10. And, regardless of your thoughts on the 27-year-old, she’s always had a way with words.

Which is why for months (years, arguably), die-hard fans, gossip lovers and even the media have been anxious to get a true glimpse into Swift’s life over the past three years.

Taylor Swift Drops Heartfelt New Single 'Call It What You Want' -- Listen!

The Grammy-winning artist has always let the music do the talking – it’s one of her greatest strengths. Heck, when she released 1989, she included packs of Polaroid photos in each hard copy – with a handwritten lyric from the album printed on each one. And we’re confident that this album will be no different. We’ve learned so much from the songs she’s already released -- not to mention the caption she left on an Instagram post on Aug. 25 after announcing the album:

Good Time Review

Good Time is a sleazy synth-trip through New York City that stews in a bath of Walter Hill and Running Scared influences. Very Point-a-to-Point-b, burning like a 100-minute fuse. The Safdie brothers (Benny/Josh) navigate New York City like a character itself, creating an underbelly thriller that speeds around dangerous streets with cavalier opportunism. It’s a movie that could Only happen in NYC – as sprawling as it is multifaceted. But even better? An A-list Hollywood heartthrob sheds beautification in favor of back-alley survival scars. Performance becomes transformation and vampire glitter fades to grime (hint at the actor who grows tremendously with each tough break).

Robert Pattinson stars as Connie Nikas, a common thug who’d do anything for his mentally disabled, hearing-challenged brother Nick (Benny Safdie). Connie refuses to watch Nick waste time under psychiatric treatment. He’d rather rob a bank and flee to the country with Nick than live on the grid,

This issue will certainly leave you with more questions than answers, but it’s important to know that you don’t

The Sweariest Films In Movie History

It’s not often that you get a ‘Bad cop’, ‘worse cop’ type affair when it comes to classic cop films. That, however, is just what you get with War on Everyone, directed by John Michael McDonagh and starring Alexander Skarsgård and Michael Pena. They play two corrupt cops in New Mexico and they don’t give a damn about who they blackmail or frame; until they come across someone even more despicable than they are. Let’s just say, these two detectives couldn’t possibly kiss their mothers with the colourful language they use. In that vein, we’ve decided to take a look at some of the films whose language has raised some questionable eye brows from society. War on Everyone is out in UK cinemas on 7th October.

Roy Orbison biopic The Big O on the way

Tony Sokol Sep 29, 2016

An official biopic of Roy Orbison has been confirmed...

Roy Orbison’s estate will cooperate with The Big O, a new biopic based on the life of the man who wrote 'Pretty Woman', 'Running Scared', 'In Dreams' and 'Only the Lonely'.

Roy Orbison was made for movies. That pallor. Those sunglasses. David Lynch saw it and Dennis Hopper channeled it. Roy Orbison was a mystery man, who never showed his eyes after losing his wife Claudette, who haunted his songs. Actually, Roy lost his regular, Buddy Holly style glasses on a tour bus with the Beatles when they opened for him in the UK. He kept both the shades and his friendship with George Harrison. They even formed a band together with Bob Dylan, Tom Petty and Jeff Lynne.

The biopic The Big O will be written by Ray Gideon and Bruce Evans,

Level Up Review

Gamer culture is a funny thing. Virtual soldiers of fortune sit comfortably on their plushy, safely-indoor couches, while screaming obscenities and egotistical insults into a headset microphone. It takes a movie like Level Up to put some of these arm-chair warriors in their respective places, useful with only a Cheeto-dusted controller in their hands. Yet, as far as “fantasy becomes reality” movies are concerned, Adam Randall’s kidnapping take is a bit more boiled-down than other more frantic, high-stakes efforts. Think Call Of Duty meets Grand Theft Auto, except Randall’s dangerous trajectory lacks any gameplay meat on its proverbial bones. Bad might turn to worse, but never in an adrenaline-pumping, action-ready kind of way. Not a glitchy mess, but more like a beta test?

Josh Bowman stars as the slacker-happy Matt, who spends most of his days playing video games and getting piss drunk. His girlfriend Anna (Leila Mimmack

Scott Eastwood To Lead Sci-Fi Movie Ecstasia

After securing roles in high-profile movies like Suicide Squad and Fast 8, Scott Eastwood has booked a leading role in a new sci-fi film called Ecstasia.

THR reports that the project comes from writer/director Wayne Kramer, who managed to coax an amazing performance out of another somewhat bland actor, Paul Walker, back in 2006's excellent Running Scared. Maybe he can do something similar for Eastwood, who surely has chiseled looks but hasn't proven to be a memorable force on screen in anything he's been in so far.

Eastwood will star alongside Italian actress Matilda Lutz in Ecstasia, a film about "a couple who live in a world where love no longer exists during their final days together before their love expires." A description from Deadline a few years ago paints a more detailed picture of the plot:

[The movie is set] at a time when love no longer exists, except when it is

Interview: Talking 'The Conjuring 2' with Director James Wan

"The Conjuring 2" has James Wan once again at the helm following the record breaking success of "The Conjuring," he brings to the screen another real case from the files of renowned demonologists Ed and Lorraine Warren with much added scares.

Latino Review had the opportunity to speak with director James Wan at a recent press day in Los Angeles. We asked him about bringing this story to London, having his set blessed by a priest, working again with Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga, working in the Hodgson house and what really scares him.

Why not just do an Amityville film since the film starts from there? Why not make a Amityville film based on the Warren files?

James Wan: I think that the fact that the Amityville case is so documented and done so many times and its just something that I feel that everyone knows about it already.

UK Trailer: Tom Hardy In "Legend"

The release of Brian Helgeland's crime thriller "Legend," starring Tom Hardy as both halves of the Kray Twins, is set for early September in the UK and so Studio Canal is about to ramp up the promotional blitz for the film.

We had a UK teaser in April set to Roy Orbinson's "Running Scared", and a U.S. trailer last month set to Imagine Dragons' "I'm So Sorry", now comes the full U.K. trailer set to The Walker Brothers' "The Sun Ain't Gonna Shine Anymore".

Tom Hardy stars as both Ronnie and Reggie Kray who ruled East London's underworld with fists, pistols and simple intimidation. Christopher Eccleston, Emily Browning and Taron Egerton's characters all get a bit more screen time in the new clip, but this is predominantly the Hardy and Hardy show.

Tom Hardy and Tom Hardy star in trailer for gangster movie ‘Legend’

Tom Hardy’s last acting challenge was acting entirely by himself for an entire movie while driving a car in 2014’s Locke. But now Hardy is doubling down on that challenge by starring as a set of twins in Brian Helgeland’s (L.A. Confidential, Mystic River) gangster drama Legend.

Based on the ’50s and ’60s organized crime wave of The Kray twins, Reggie and Ronnie, Legend documents their rise to power and their rein of terror as night club owners and celebrity gangsters. In addition to their identical appearance, Ronnie Kray also suffered from paranoid schizophrenia, so there’s certainly a lot of meat here for Hardy to bite off. Here’s the official synopsis:

From Academy Award® winner Brian Helgeland comes the true story of the rise and fall of London’s most notorious gangsters, Reggie and Ron Kray, both portrayed by Tom Hardy in an amazing double performance.

Legend Trailer: Tom Hardy and Tom Hardy Rule the London Crime Scene

It’s been nearly a year since we shared the first image of Tom Hardy as Ronald and Reginald Kray, but now you can see the twin gangsters in action in the very first Legend trailer. The Brian Helgeland-directed film tells the true story of the identical twins who ruled the London crime scene in the 1950s and 1960s. While Hardy’s double performance is certainly the highlight of this trailer, the piece also does a stellar job of conveying a curious tone, putting an unusual pep to the Kray twins’ menace through some especially vibrant imagery set to the tune of Roy Orbison’s “Running Scared.” You can check out the new Legend trailer for yourself below. The film also stars Emily Browning, David Thewlis, Christopher Eccleston, Chazz Palminteri and Taron Egerton. (Why do I get the feeling that Egerton never would have scored that one shot in
