If someone approached me and demanded a list of great actors, Clive Owen would be one of the first. There’s just something about his balance of charm and grit in movies like Children of Men that grabs a hold of me and doesn’t let go. It’s been that way ever since I first became familiar with him in the early 2000s, and it will most likely remain that way for years to come.
With his recent run of hit series like Apple TV+’s Lisey’s Story and the FX anthology series Impeachment: American Crime Story, I have been taking a trip down memory lane to revisit my favorite Clive Owen movies, as well as some others I may have missed over the years. But, instead of keeping this list to myself, I’ve decided to share it with you, along with all the ways you can watch them on various streaming services.
As we know, that trip eventually turns sour, thanks to events that transpire. However, “Matera” isn’t a hard driving action tune, it’s more of a love theme. Although, it turns out to be the love theme of the 007 legacy that makes an appearance, as “We Have All The Time In The World” makes itself known musically. Slowly making way to part of the melody from No Time To Die’s title track, sung by Billie Eilish, both James Bond’s greatest romance and the darkness that awaits are signalled.
When Disney World and Disneyland opened Rise of the Resistance at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, it was possibly the biggest attraction opening ever. It was huge in scope and scale and the demand for the ride was equally massive. In order to best manage demand, the Disney Parks implemented their first ever Virtual Queue. Rather than stand in line, guests were issued a Boarding Group via an app, which determine when they would be able to get in line for the ride. Up until now, the virtual queue has been the only way to get on the ride, but yesterday at Disney’s Hollywood Studio, the virtual queue was officially replaced with a traditional standby line. And thus far, it seems to be working pretty well.
And, I’ll be straight with you. They didn’t do a great job with Doctor Doom. Played by Nip/Tuck actor, Julian McMahon, the Doctor Doom in the Chris Evans Fantastic Four movies is a lot smarmier than he is intimidating. At no point is he actually scary or imposing.
But, you know what? These movies are for kids. Yes, the first movie is rated PG-13, but it was a pretty soft PG-13. And, the second movie, Rise of the Silver Surfer, was even rated PG, for crying out loud. So, while the Doctor Doom in these two Fantastic Four movies wasn’t really the one that I wanted, he definitely fit the two movies that he was actually in. Besides, he was much better than the Doctor Doom in Fant4stic. God, don’t remind me of that one.
The above message from Misha Green comes to us from her personal Twitter, and will likely be a relief to the hardcore DC fans out there. Every time a comic book movie is produced, purists judge how accurate the adaptation is based on the comics. It remains to be seen how they will ultimately factor into the Black Canary movie.
Just like Batgirl and Blue Beetle, the Black Canary movie is expected to be a HBO Max exclusive. You can use this link to sign up for the streaming service.
The Dear Evan Hansen movie also takes steps to make the story a more inclusive one. On top of Alana being an expanded character, the Murphy family is now a blended one featuring Cuban American actor Danny Pino as Larry. Evan’s friend Jared, played by Nik Dodani, is also queer in this adaptation. This change happened organically when Stephen Chbosky was working with the Atypical actor. Chbosky enjoyed flipping the typical sex-crazed teenager archtype on its head, and spoke to his colalboration with Dodani, saying:
Zachary Levi’s account of the encounter may have ended innocently, but not all of them end that way. As Levi pointed out, the incident didn’t just happen unexpectedly. The two fans had to search for his address and find his exact location to arrive on his doorstep. While the two women just wanted to meet the actor, he could’ve been in real danger if their plot was more nefarious. It’s not only scary for the celebrity, but also potentially for the fans. If the Shazam! star had a different demeanor, it could’ve ended terribly for them if things turned violent. Thankfully, all parties involved were able to walk away from the situation unharmed.
Marvel’s Black Widow just dropped on Blu-ray, so it’s little surprise that the first movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe in two years is topping the Blu-ray charts. People who still want to be sure they own a copy of their favorite films need to keep that collection intact. Widow dethroned the number one movie from the previous week, Zack Snyder’s Justice League, though that film is still holding steady at number two, showing just how big the Snyder Cut fandom really is. But there is one surprise on the current charts, which shows that another film still has a pretty impressive fanbase, even more than 25 years later, The Shawshank Redemption.
