    On The Rise 2014: 13 Actresses To Watch

    We’re about to hit a real sea-change with the kind of movies Hollywood is making.

    On The Rise 2014: 13 Screenwriters To Watch

    "'I loved 'Gravity,' but the screenplay sucked" went the relatively common refrain.

    20 Fictional Movie Bands That Rocked Your World

    Movies and music are closely entwined, as the name of this site demonstrates and as we've shown several times recently (each word there links to a different recent music/movie feature). But rarer —and frequently more fun— than pre-existing songs or known musicians showing up on screen are films wher...

    In Memoriam: Robin Williams’ 10 Best Performances

    We lost a genius yesterday. As you're surely aware by now, comedian and actor Robin Williams took his own life in California yesterday morning, aged 63, after what only a few seemed to know was a longtime struggle with depression.
