Books

This Legends of Tomorrow episode review contains spoilers. Like, right at the beginning. Don't read on if you don't want to know.

Legends of Tomorrow Season 4 Episode 10

I know why they had to do it, but it still stings a little that Legends of Tomorrow whacked Hank Heywood right after spending an episode making him so damn likeable.

"The Getaway" is a little bit of a companion episode to "Luchas de Apuestas" in that this week's episode finishes setting the table for the rest of the season. This episode works in tandem with last week's, warts and all, to tell a fun story that's surprisingly moving and crystallizes the rest of season four's conflict.

The setup has the team heading back to 1973. Richard Nixon has been possessed by Mahat, the Egyptian god of lies, and can only tell the truth.

Can the Legends Make Certain That the President Lies to America? — Watch

This week on DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, the team’s latest mission involves kidnapping a crooked commander-in-chief. And yet as seen in this sneak peek, that is far from Sara’s only problem.

There, in order to preserve history, Sara & Co. use a groovy Rv to transport an abducted President Richard M. Nixon to Disney’s Contemporary Resort, so that he can deliver his infamous “I am not a crook” speech.

Robert Rodriguez Explains From Dusk Till Dawn Ending, El Mariachi Origins

David Crow Mar 26, 2019

Robert Rodriguez talks new thriller Red 11's origins from making of El Mariachi... and where Seth is really going in From Dusk Till Dawn.

When Robert Rodriguez comes by our studio during SXSW, he’s maybe a little nostalgic. Whereas most other filmmakers descend onto Austin in early March for a whirlwind of press and festivities, Rodriguez lives here and will remain long after the banners come down. Thus his trip was one practically across the street when he begins to reflect on the making Red 11, a new thriller intrinsically linked to his first film El Mariachi, plus those early days that’ve become something akin to filmmaking legend. In this vein, he and his children just watched From Dusk Till Dawn for the first-time together—and not the TV series either. This is the 1996 cult classic that starred George Clooney and Quentin Tarantino (who also

Steve McQueen movies: 15 greatest films, ranked worst to best, include ‘Bullitt,’ ‘The Great Escape,’ ‘Papillon’
Steve McQueen would’ve celebrated his 89th birthday on March 24, 2019. The Oscar-nominated performer helped define the meaning of “cool” in just a handful of movies before his untimely death in 1980 at the age of 50. But how many of those titles remain classics? In honor of his birthday, let’s take a look back at 15 of his greatest films, ranked worst to best.

Born in 1930, McQueen first came to the attentions of movie audiences with his leading role in the sci-fi B-movie classic “The Blob” (1958). He quickly made a name for himself as an action star thanks to a series of hits through the 1960s and early 1970s, including “The Magnificent Seven” (1960), “The Great Escape” (1963), “Bullitt” (1968), “The Thomas Crown Affair” (1968), “The Getaway” (1972), and “The Towering Inferno” (1974).

Vintage '72

1972 is our year of the month so let's give it some overall context before we visit specific films. 

Great Big Box Office Hits: The Godfather, which would go on to win Best Picture and spawn two sequels was the year's box office champ. But The Poseidon Adventure, and What's Up Doc? were also gigantic hits continuing the threads of all-star disaster movies and Barbra Streisand movies as sure things with audiences of the 1970s. Other box office draws that year: Deliverance, Cabaret, Steve McQueen and Ali McGraw in The Getaway, and Robert Redford as Jeremiah Johnson.  This was also the year that Deep Throat and Behind the Green Door launched the 'porno chic' boom of the 1970s and both were substantial hits along with the X rated animated feature Fritz the Cat.

Oscar's Best Picture Nominees: The Godfather  (11 noms / 3 wins) and Cabaret (10 noms / 8 wins) dominated the Academy Awards leaving no

King of Cool vs. King of Kung Fu: The Steve McQueen-Bruce Lee Rivalry (Exclusive)

Like most things, pop culture icons usually have a shelf life, but in Hollywood, there are exceptions. The legend surrounding some actors have gone far beyond their lives and careers, capturing the imagination of generations of movie fans that, in some ways, defies logical explanation. Yet here they are, constantly being discovered by a new audience who ensure that their names will live on. Two of them are Steve McQueen, known as the King of Cool, and Bruce Lee, undisputed master of the martial arts. (Photo Credit: Getty Images) McQueen's credits include films like The Great Escape, Bullitt, The Getaway, and Papillon, while Lee made his name in kung fu films from his native Hong Kong such as The Chinese Connection and The Big Boss, before exploding in America in his first and (sadly) only studio release, Enter the Dragon. Both men had to overcome seemingly impossible odds — McQueen a seriously abusive childhood,

Tuesday Blus: Come Up w/Fleas for Donaldson’s Sleeping Dog (1977)

Director Roger Donaldson is one of those mainstream minded filmmakers whose body of work quickly and quietly dispelled his Australian origins. His glossy Hollywood movies of the 1980s (1987’s The Big Clock remake No Way Out or 1988’s Cocktail) segued into knock-off genre brands, like his remake of Arthur Penn’s The Getaway in 1994, or B-grade sci-fi classic Species (1995). His most noted item might still be 1998’s Dante’s Peak, one of the two dueling volcano action epics which premiered within the same period. Lately, he’s churned out risible fodder for fading action idols, like Nicolas Cage in Seeking Justice

Charley Varrick (Region B)

It’s the loose-censored early 1970s, and screen bandits shootin’ up the American movie landscape are no longer suffering the once-mandated automatic moral retribution. Walter Matthau launched himself into the genre with this excellent Don Siegel on-the-run epic, about an old-fashioned independent bandit who accidentally rips off the mob for a million. It’s great, wicked fun.
