Guillermo del Toro movies: All 10 films, ranked worst to best, include ‘The Shape of Water,’ ‘Pan’s Labyrinth,’ ‘Crimson Peak’
Guillermo del Toro celebrates his 54th birthday on October 9, 2018. The Mexican-born auteur hit the Oscar jackpot earlier this year with his fantastical love story “The Shape of Water” (2017), which took home four prizes including Best Picture and Best Director. But that’s just one of many eye-popping fantasies he has crafted throughout his career. In honor of his birthday, let’s take a look back at all 10 of del Toro’s films, ranked worst to best.

Del Toro made his feature directing debut with the Spanish-language horror drama “Cronos” (1993), which established him as a maker of dark, visually-stunning fright-fests. The film wrote him a ticket to Hollywood, where he helmed the creepy chiller “Mimic” (1997). Over the next two decades, he would bounce back-and-forth between mainstream American productions and more personal stories in his native language.

It was for “Pan’s Labyrinth” (2006), a fable about a young Mexican girl escaping into

Film Review: Hiroshima (1953) by Hideo Sekigawa

Both a landmark and a source of much controversy, “Hiroshima” is one of those films where the background is as significant as the picture itself. Let us take things from the beginning, by quoting Joseph Anderson and Donald Richie’s “The Japanese Film”. “In 1953, the Japan Teachers Union decided to go in with Kaneto Shindo and make a film version of the bestselling “Children of the Atom Bomb” (Genbaku no Ko) by Arata Osada. Shindo made a faithful film version, using the name of the book, and showed the aftermath of the bomb without any vicious polemic. (…) The Union was not at all satisfied, saying that he had “made [the story] into a tear-jerker and destroyed its political orintation.” They decided to back another version which would this time “genuinely to help to fight to preserve peace.” They found their man in Hideo Sekigawa, who turned out “Hiroshima”. (…) The picture was financially

Killer Doll Revealed for Child’S Play Remake

  • DailyDead
Following the announcement that production has begun in Vancouver on a remake of 1988's Child's Play, the first image of the killer doll from the modern reimagining has now been revealed, and he just wants to be your friend... till the end.

Unveiled on the official Child's Play Facebook page (see below) with the caption, "Wanna play? Your best friend is getting an update," the killer doll looks very similar to the Good Guys doll named Chucky from the previous seven installments in the franchise. It's not yet known if the doll in the new movie will be named Chucky, nor has it been announced who will voice him (Brad Dourif has given life to the iconic character in all seven movies thus far), but we'll keep Daily Dead readers updated as more details are divulged.

The Child's Play remake will feature Aubrey Plaza playing the role of Karen, Brian Tyree Henry as Mike,

Production Begins on Child’S Play Remake Starring Brian Tyree Henry and Aubrey Plaza

  • DailyDead
Back in July, it was revealed that a remake of 1988's Child Play was in development, and now MGM and Orion Pictures have announced that production on the contemporary reimagining has commenced in Vancouver, with Aubrey Plaza playing the role of Karen, Brian Tyree Henry as Mike, and Gabriel Bateman playing Andy.

Lars Klevberg (Polaroid) is directing the new Child's Play movie from a screenplay by Tyler Burton Smith (Kung Fury), with David Katzenberg and Seth Grahame-Smith on board as producers.

At this time, it does not look like the remake will be connected to the detailed timeline of Mancini's movies.

Movie Review – Mile 22 (2018)

Mile 22, 2018.

Directed by Peter Berg.

Starring Mark Wahlberg, Lauren Cohen, Iko Uwais, John Malkovich, Ronda Rousey, and Carlo Alban.

Synopsis:

James Silva (Mark Wahlberg) is an elite American intelligence officer working with a top secret tactical unit. When he’s tasked with smuggling a high value asset (Iko Uwais) out of foreign territory, he must use his unique skillset in order to escape the dangerous concrete jungle with their lives intact.

Oh wow. And not in a good way. Peter Berg’s fourth consecutive film with his action muse, Mark Wahlberg, to put it bluntly, is an absolute stinker.

It’s difficult to know where to begin, so we’ll start with the red herring that is Mile 22‘s opening scene. A sequence which suggests Berg will use his impressive default setting as an action director, one which has served him so well in the likes of The Kingdom and Lone Survivor.
