    5 Michael Fassbender Films You May Not Have Seen

    Michael Fassbender has had a good run of it these past few years. It's a hot streak (one which saw him the recipient of the "staggering honor" that was Playlist Man of the Year 2011) that looks set to continue with the Irish/German actor moving between critically adored arthouse films and broad-appe...

    20 Superhero Movies That Couldn't Fly All The Way To The Big Screen

    David Fincher Says He's Still Figuring Out 'Dragon Tattoo' Sequel; Reveals Other Directors On 'House Of Cards'

    With Sony confirming last week that "The Girl Who Played With Fire" would not be hitting screens in 2013 (hardly a shock considering no casting or greenlight or any other movement had happened on "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo" followup), speculation brewed as to whether or not...

    5 Things You Might Not Know About 'The Lost Boys' On Its 25th Anniversary

    Vampires are pretty much everywhere these days, with the "Twilight" franchise and TV's "The Vampire Diaries" gripping the imagination of teen audiences the world over.

    Review: 'Trespass' Is a Hopelessly Uninspired Home Invasion Thriller

    With a speaking voice that often (and unexpectedly) devolves into histrionic yelps and an assortment of goofy, ever-changing hair pieces, Nicolas Cage has become such a creative loose cannon you often want to check in on his latest effort in the off chance that he’s delivered some creative crazy goo...

    Joel Schumacher Tries To Pull Off His Best Michael Haneke Impression In New 'Tresspass' Photos

    Oh, Joel Schumacher, with your patchiest of patchy careers ever (though some Playlisters will outright call it an awful one). There is some interesting work in your flawed ouevre oeuvre, including "Tigerland," and "Falling Down," but so-so efforts ("Veronica Guerin") are usually overcome by the ungood ("Phone Booth," "The Number 23," "Twelve"). Pitched somewhere between a B-movie director with good intentions and poor execution and a thoughtless Hollywood A-list director without much vision whose best days are far behind him (think of the days when his career was big enough to score him two "Batman" films, even if he did kill the franchise un...

    Director Joel Schumacher is going to keep making movies whether or not anybody wants to see them. While mainstream audiences probably remember his last outing, the silly conspiracy thriller "The Number 23," he's actually made two more movies since: the horror pic "Blood Creek" and the godawful teens...
