8 of the most original comedies so far this century

  • HeyUGuys
The era of the rom-com is over. For a long time, those dominated cinemas but as tastes changed, they died a quick death. Now, comedies struggle to find the same level of success those did (at least on a commercial level) and it’s rare we get one which is truly original.

However, there are those which do stand out as being something special and that’s what we’re taking a look at today. These comedies managed to do what often appears to be impossible nowadays; they delivered story and laughs which actually felt 100% original.

Even if they borrowed from other genres, they had a concept which was new and that alone is impressive. So, to take a look at the full list, simply click through the gallery below.

The Most Critically Divisive Films of the Last 17 Years, According to Gizmodo Study

The Most Critically Divisive Films of the Last 17 Years, According to Gizmodo Study
When “mother!” opened nationwide last month, it divided critics in a way no film had in a very long time. For every review that called the movie a masterpiece, there was one detesting it as nothing but Darren Aronofsky’s sick, bloated metaphor. Such a polarizing response can be exciting, and it would appear based on a new study that Aronofsky’s latest really does rank as one of the most divisive films of the 21st century.

Charlize Theron Boards The Orville (and Romances Ed!) — Watch a Sneak Peek

Charlize Theron Boards The Orville (and Romances Ed!) — Watch a Sneak Peek
The Orville‘s crew has seen a lot of stars in their explorations of outer space… but maybe never one this big before.

Oscar winner Charlize Theron guest-stars on next Thursday’s episode (Fox, 9/8c) as Pria, the captain of a stranded spaceship who gets rescued by Ed (Seth MacFarlane) and his shipmates. And in the sneak peek posted above, Pria seems to charm the crew pretty quickly, even planting a kiss on Ed’s cheek. (Jealous yet, Kelly?) But maybe the new arrival’s intentions aren’t all that pure: We later see Ed commanding Pria, “Give me back

Battle of the Sexes movie review: totally ace

MaryAnn’s quick take… An essential history lesson with a smart smack of relevance for today (because feminism always has to be relitigated). It’s also warm, funny, and hugely entertaining. I’m “biast” (pro): I’m desperate for movies about women

I’m “biast” (con): not a sports fan at all

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

That saying about those not remembering the past being condemned to repeat it? Of course it’s true… but sometimes it’s not an accident that the past gets forgotten. Sometimes the squashing of history — and the continuation of history into the present — is deliberate. Feminists know this: Women are constantly having to reinvent feminism, refight the same battles, because they don’t stay won. A brief moment of small triumph very quickly gets drowned out by major cultural pushback; women may savor victory only long enough

Film Review: Christian Bale in Scott Cooper’s ‘Hostiles’

Film Review: Christian Bale in Scott Cooper’s ‘Hostiles’
It’s hardly “Heaven’s Gate,” but there’s a similar grandiosity of ambition — and a familiar sense of folly — to Scott Cooper’s “Hostiles,” a $40 million, independently produced, sure-to-be-r-rated Western in a marketplace where even a more broadly appealing oater, like Seth MacFarlane’s tongue-in-cheek “A Million Ways to Die in the West,” can barely earn that kind of money back. But “Hostiles” is no spoof; it’s a deadly serious examination of the strained relationship between white men and Native Americans in this country, one that acknowledges the racism and brutality the U.S. Army showed to frontier tribes, while giving a bigoted cavalry officer played by Christian Bale a chance to redeem himself.

Debuting at the Telluride film festival without a distributor in place, this impressively mounted, intellectually corrupt period piece isn’t your traditional Western, and clearly fancies itself a revisionist take on so many black-and-white us-vs.-them tales,

Verily, is there an English actor more worthy of respect than Sir Patrick Stewart?

The distinguished Shakespearean, birthed in Yorkshire in 1940, has wowed on the stage his whole career and continues to do so, most recently in a production of Harold Pinter’s No Man’s Land that he and his buddy Ian McKellen mounted on Broadway and then brought across the pond to London.

Before that, his portrayal of cerebral starship captain Jean-Luc Picard in "Star Trek: The Next Generation" was a major factor in ensuring the longevity of one of pop culture’s greatest science-fiction franchises.

Speaking of franchises, the X-Men movies, which set the template for this century’s superhero genre,

Charlize Theron is sensual and violent in trailer for Atomic Blonde

Author: Zehra Phelan

Charlize Theron, From Fast and Furious 8 to Atomic Blonde is proving to be one scary badass woman and the new trailer for the latter film just strengthens her hold on the high-octane, violence fuelled playing field with jaw-dropping results.

Related: Charlize Theron on A Million Ways to Die in the West.

For at least the first minute of the two minute, forty eight second trailer, Theron kicks and punches her way through a horde of men coming at her thick and fast before we even get a glimpse of a storyline. At this stage we are thinking she could give John Wick a good run for his money. When it suddenly calms down, lulling you into a false sense of security, we find out Lorraine Broughton (Theron) is actually a super skilled secret agent of some kind who is sent out into the field to stop any
