James Mangold Shares His “Misgivings About Violence And PG Ratings”

James Mangold has had a lot to say during his pre-Oscars press. Nominated for Best Adapted Screenplay for “Logan,” the filmmaker has railed against post-credits scenes, and explained how he tried to make his superhero movie more like an Ozu film. We’ll leave it up to others to decide if he succeeded on that front; […]

James Mangold Talks ‘Logan’: “I Tried To Make An Ozu Film...

Lately, James Mangold — the co-writer and director of the Oscar nominated “Logan“— has been getting pretty testy about superhero movies. Most specifically, the filmmaker has railing against “fucking embarrassing” post-credits scenes, explaining in detail why he hates them. On a larger level, he doesn’t want “Logan” to be lumped into the same category of […]

Oktay Ege Kozak’s Top 10 Films Of 2017

As far as our sociopolitical environment is concerned, 2017 has been a dumpster fire inside a locked building full of orphans. But as we have witnessed with the tumultuous period of the 1970s, such times usually result in daring, transgressive, and sometimes even revolutionary artistic work. Therefore, it makes sense for this year to provide […]

Best & Worst Of The 2017 Box Office

2017 was something of a mixed bag for Hollywood at the box office. After last year’s record domestic receipts, $11.37 billion, it was likely that there would be a decrease in revenues and tickets sold overall.  But by the end of the year, returns should come close to 2015’s $11.12 billion take. Sure, the tickets […]

The Most Underrated & Overrated Films Of 2017

As much as we evidently love you, our glorious readers (why else would we toil so hard over such a breathtaking array of year-end features, for one thing), there is perhaps a group of people we love even more. And that is our contributors, who throughout the year give The Playlist its inimitable, sometimes cacophonous […]

The Best Action Sequences Of 2017

Cinema is, quite literally, action, and while some of the snootier critics might look down on the action movie, there are few purer cinematic pleasures than looking at a great set-piece sequence, from “The General” to “Mad Max: Fury Road.” Technology might have made jaw-dropping spectacle easier than ever to pull off, but a summer […]

Explore The Similarities Of ‘Logan’ & ‘Children Of Men’

In comparing “Logan” and “Children of Men,” analysis deviates from the plot and performances to a deeper, more intrinsic understanding of what both films are saying and how they say it. With similar main character story arcs, James Mangold and Alfonso Cuarón’s films bear striking similarities in how their scripts lead to the culmination of a […]

‘Dunkirk,’ ‘Okja,’ ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ Make First Cut In...

The Best Movie Posters Of 2017

December is here, and that only means one thing at Playlist HQ: just a month to go until the release of that horse soldier movie. But if it meant two things, it would be that it begins our annual binge-look at the year in film and TV gone by. Over the coming weeks between now […]

Patrick Stewart Revisits ‘Logan’ And The Never Ending Goodbye To Professor...

Sir Patrick Stewart is still waiting for his invite to the Dolby Theater and we’re (probably) running out of time.  The legendary star of stage, little screen and big screen is a spry 77-years-old and while he’s as busy as ever it’s always worth noting that Father Time waits for now one.  Stewart, who is […]

Fox Chief Talks Rebooting Wolverine & Superhero Fatigue

Hugh Jackman finally said goodbye to Wolverine this year with “Logan,” which is trying to earn some Oscar love (more on that in a second), and for now the character is in the movie vault. But in today’s climate, no character is truly gone, and if you look over at Warner Bros., they’re more than […]
