Joaquin Phoenix movies: 12 greatest films, ranked worst to best, include ‘Walk the Line,’ ‘Gladiator,’ ‘Her’
2018 has been a very prolific year for three-time Oscar nominee Joaquin Phoenix. He has already starred in two acclaimed films — as a gun-for-hire in Lynne Ramsay‘s “You Were Never Really Here” and Gus Van Sant‘s biopic about paralyzed cartoonist John Callahan, “Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far on Foot.” And now Phoenix returns to the nation’s theaters in Jacques Audiard‘s Western, “The Sisters Brothers,” for which Audiard recently won the Best Director prize at this year’s Venice Film Festival.

Phoenix has been no stranger to awards circles. He has been nominated for three Academy Awards, five Golden Globe Awards (including a win for 2005’s “Walk the Line”) and four Screen Actors Guild Awards.

Phoenix looks to have a busy 2019 as well as he stars in the title role as DC Comics’ “Joker,” focusing on the iconic supervillain in a film directed by “The Hangover’s” Todd Phillips.

“Bill and Ted” was a double-edged sword for Reeves, introducing him to a wide audience as high school student Ted Logan, but forever equating in some critics’ minds the real-life actor with the dim bulb of a character that he played here,

Younger Star Previews Diana's 'Fearless' Musical Number, Including What Didn't Make the Final Cut

After missing out on last season’s big excursion to Ireland, Younger‘s Diana Trout is determined to make the most of tonight’s trip to Germany (TV Land, 10/9c). And you don’t get much bigger than a major musical moment with Martha Plimpton.

“I love that the writers, even since Season 1, have insinuated and dropped all these hints about how Diana was a massive party girl back in the day,” Miriam Shor tells TVLine. “First it was with Jane Krakowski’s character, and now we’re doing it again with Martha Plimpton. It cracks me up because it’s just so unexpected.

Edie Falco hopes to be 8th performer from ‘Law & Order’ franchise to win an Emmy: Can you name the other 7?
Just how much do the Emmys love Edie Falco? She’s currently the only actress to win lead trophies for a comedy series (“Nurse Jackie” in 2010) and a drama series, and now she hopes to add to her record with a victory for a limited series. On Thursday Falco received a Best Movie/Mini Actress Emmy nomination for her work on the limited series “Law & Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders.” If she wins, that would make Falco the eighth performer from the “Law & Order” franchise to win an Emmy.

So who are the other seven? “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” star Mariska Hargitay is the only performer to prevail at the televised Primetime Emmys, winning Best Drama Actress in 2006.

80s Movies That Need a Sequel

80s Movies That Need a Sequel
Remember seeing movies like The Goonies or Ferris Bueller's Day Off? Remember seeing Beetlejuice again and again in the movie theater? Why did we do this you may wonder? Because back in those days a film was just that. A film. It wasn't made and then sequel strewn with ease two years later. No, that sequel status was reserved for films in the pantheon of Star Wars. And because of that we have many films from the 1980s that need sequels.

Movies that make money today are pretty much guaranteed to have a second act. Regardless of whether this second act is warranted. As long as they hit a certain threshold at the box office, a successful film will generate film after film. Even when the numbers dip, these films can be released to platforms like Netflix where they can potentially live forever.

The 1980s were not like that. A movie would come out.

Paying Tribute to 80s Movie Legend Martha Plimpton

Giving Martha Plimpton a tribute is only fair since she’s been one of the most prolific actors that still remains so low key over the years. Her career has spanned at least a few decades and despite the fact that she was acting well before Goonies it was still this movie that put her over and made her into a recognized star. Her role as Steff was perfect since she became part babysitter, part adventurer, and had an attitude and a mouth on her that fit the part perfectly. Throughout much of her career Martha’s onscreen attitude has been her

More Streaming Options

If you're bored with your new choices on Netflix, thought we'd give a shout out to a few options for only 99¢ on iTunes at the moment. Stronger, with Jake Gyllenhaal (who won our Bronze for Best Actor for last season) is their movie of the week. But in their often changing "Movies You Might Have Missed" section, also 99¢, they're currently offering five Pedro Almodóvar movies, Meryl Streep in She-Devil (which the Month of Meryl column hits next Thursday), the Glenn Close classic Fatal Attraction, David Fincher's Se7en, and, um, a Chinese remake of the unimprovable 90s romcom My Best Friend's Wedding... but at least it stars Shu Qi so it *might* be worth 99¢

And still more streaming options if you're not in the mood for Dwayne Johnson's Rampage this weekend or you've already see the delightful / problematic / futureOscarnominee Isle of Dogs. Amazon Prime has added a 55 wide movie

Soundtracking: "200 Cigarettes"

Happy New Year! Chris rings in 2018 by looking back at the 80s via the 90s with 200 Cigarettes!

Remember theme parties? Well, 200 Cigarettes is a film version of an 80s theme party, set over New Year’s Eve as several lovelorn folks slowly make their way to Martha Plimpton’s house. Sounds like a party we would all want to go to, so you would think that the film would have had a longer shelf life than it did. The film is as forgotten as the old acquaintances "Auld Lang Syne" talked about, and shouldn’t be considering its easy charms, famous cast, and relentless gifability. But while parties are meant to be replaced by other parties, the music stays the same.
