Five Favourite Films with Richard Curtis Opens in new window

Richard Curtis has a plan. "What I've decided is to choose recent films," he explains to RT.

The Legacy of The Matrix Opens in new window

1999 was one of the most important years for modern cinema. Ten years on, we're celebrating a remarkable twelve months of movies with new features around some of the year's best and most important releases. The Matrix was the phenomenon which made George Lucas' serial-style adventure seem as quaint as tie-dye loon pants. It did the proper sci-fi job of surfing the zeitgeist exactly in every single aspect. It has seeped into subsequent movies which have either blatantly or subtly drawn from aspects of The Matrix -- ranging from its action-friendly fashion sense to franchise-building business plan. Join RT as we explore ten movies released in the ten years since The Matrix came out that owe a little something to one of 1999's most exciting releases. More...

Four New Faces Join Jack Black's "Rewind" Opens in new window

One percolating project that's really caught my eye is called "Be Kind Rewind," not just because it stars the generally amusing Jack Black, but also because it's being directed by Michel Gondry ("Eternal Sunshine").
