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.
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.
July was a pretty good month for quality films and just like any month it had its highs and lows! This is going to be the first time that Men vs. Movies is doing a written best and worst for the month. This article will compile Nick, Brody, and Sean's list so that you could see our respective favorite and least favorite movies of this month and some of the reasons why.
Hello, to my fellow earthlings. Welcome to the newly created tv segment of Men vs. Movies. If you are wondering “Why would a website for movies have a tv section?” I honestly don’t know, I can’t answer that question but I can happily bring you reviews of our favourite tv shows and open your eyes to shows that may have missed you. I’m going to break down tv shows I will be watching this week and dropping a couple of reviews along the way.
It was announced on Monday that James Bond will indeed return in November of 2019 for his 25th official installment. While EON Productions was reticent on the finer details of the production, the New York Times has indicated that Daniel Craig's return to the iconic role of 007 is a "done deal". Now Deadline is reporting that we could soon also have a director attached to the project.
Let's talk Nolan movies! With Dunkirk having been released just last Thursday we thought that it would be awesome to give you guys our opinions of Christopher Nolan's best films so that you could have a Nolan marathon from worst (if there really is one) to best if you so desire! We have compiled lists from Sean Chandler, Tyler Tompkins, as well as our very own Griffin Schiller for this weeks ranking.
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.
Another week, another Weekend Update! During this Comic-Con week we see the release of two tentpole films in Christopher Nolan's WWII Epic Dunkirk and Luc Besson's Sci-Fi adventure Valerian and the City of A Thousand Planets. As always, you can purchase tickets in advance through Fandango by simply clicking the picture associated with each movie.
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.

All good things must come to an end. This phrase applies no differently to the tenure of Kevin Feige with Marvel Studios.

Many timelines go as follows - First Class, Origins, X-Men Trilogy, The Wolverine, Days of Future Past (2023), Days of Future Past (1973), Then Apocalypse, Days of Future Past (Fixed 2023), and ending with Logan.
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…
