Three Reasons Book to Film Adaptations Suck!

This weekend, the first of two major Stephen King book to film adaptations coming out this fall will arrive. While there's an enormous amount of anticipation for these two films, there is also a certain level of apprehension. While there are some great Stephen King cinematic adaptations, many are horrible.

How A Doctor Doom Movie Could Save Fox's Fantastic Four Franchise

How A Doctor Doom Movie Could Save Fox's Fantastic Four Franchise

This year’s San Diego Comic Con gave us tons of exciting trailers, announcements and news regarding the future of the superhero movie genre, but one piece of information that appeared to go somewhat under the radar, with all the focus on Justice League, Thor: Ragnarok and Infinity War, were the comments made Noah Hawley, the man behind the Fargo and Legion TV Series, where, when asked about his upcoming projects, stated “I wanted to let you know about a movie I’m developing for Fox… the first word is ‘Doctor’, and the second is ‘Doom.’” While the news that Fox are at least considering making a feature film centred around Victor Von Doom may angst some fans desperate for the Fantastic Four rights to return to Marvel, I think there’s something extremely interesting about the possibility of a Doom movie, with Hawley at the helm.

Christopher Nolan Movies Ranked

Luc Besson: The Creative Creator

Luc Besson: The Creative Creator

Opening this week is French director Luc Besson’s latest film, Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets. The $180 million dollar sci-fi epic is both the highest budgeted independent and French film of all-time. While the title is unfamiliar to the casual movie goer in North America, the film is actually based off of a 50 year old French comic book. On the surface, it would seem strange for Besson to follow up his previous film, the international Scarlett Johansson hit Lucy, with a sci-fi film, but this kind of genre hopping has been a staple of Luc Besson’s career.

Planet of the Apes Movies Ranked! (Only the Good Ones)

Planet of the Apes Movies Ranked! (Only the Good Ones)

War for the Planet of the Apes has finally hit theaters across the country and to no surprise at all has amassed massive amounts of critical and commercial praise. The franchise that began in 1968 with the original Charlton Heston classic Planet of the Apes, is no stranger to the sequel and reboot process having spawned several sequels in the early to mid-70s and of course the infamous 2001 reboot by Tim Burton. 2011 brought about the arrival of arguably the biggest surprise of the year in Rise of the Planet of the Apes and also our next attempt at a revival of the beloved cult classic franchise. In honor of the conclusion to the prequel apes trilogy, the writers here at Men vs. Movies have decided to rank the Apes films from worst to best.

The Feige Effect: It's Not What You Think

All good things must come to an end. This phrase applies no differently to the tenure of Kevin Feige with Marvel Studios. Feige began producing for Marvel 17 years ago with the first X-Men movie (directed by Brian Singer), and last week’s Spider-Man Homecoming marks the 16th film within the Marvel Cinematic Universe that Feige has overseen since 2008 (Iron Man).

In Defence of the Almighty Remake (and Reboot, and sequel, and spinoff AND franchise or whatever)

Originality. That’s the goal, right? That is the common denominator. The thing that we all care about, and the vital element that filmmakers should always be striving for. Sometimes they achieve it… And sometimes they clearly don’t…
