The Coolest Movies Of The 90s
The age of grunge music and beanie baby mania also was home to plenty of masterful movies. From Spielberg’s historical masterpieces to Scorsese and Tarantino inspired gangster action, the 90’s ran a gamut of films representing the best of every genre. Certainly an improvement over the flashy blockbuster films of the 80s, these films of the 20th century’s penultimate decade were adored by critics and casual moviegoers alike. Here are the best movies of the 1990s.

Goodfellas (1990)

Spotlight: Liam Neeson - The Unexpected Movie Star

January 27th, 2012 3:00pm EST
Liam Neeson in The Grey
This weekend, audiences will get the chance to see Liam Neeson fight a pack of hungry wolves in order to say alive in “The Grey” from director Joe Carnahan. Though he has become a worldwide action star with films like “Taken” and “Unknown,” 15 years ago the Irish-born former amateur boxer was better known for dramas like “Schindler’s List” and “Michael Collins.” That’s not to say he takes the craft of acting any less seriously now than he did back then. He is still as talented and charismatic as ever, only now he seems to be having a lot more fun.

So how did Neeson go from being a serious ...

'The Grey' Slammed By Wolf Conservation Group

January 24th, 2012 8:04am EST
The Grey
Liam Neeson's new survival thriller The Grey has come under fire from officials at an animal conservation group, who claim the movie's portrayal of wolves as violent killers is "fantasy".

The Schindler's List actor plays part of a group of men stranded in Alaska after a plane crash and forced to survive on their wits as a pack of wolves hunts them down.

However, the winter wilderness drama has failed to impress chiefs at Wolf Conservation Center.

Managing director Maggie Howell tells the New York Post, "Wolves don't hunt humans - they actually shy away from them."

Eight World War II Movies To Watch Before 'Inglourious Basterds'

August 18th, 2009 10:40am EDT
The Thin Red Line
With the release of Quentin Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds Friday, we're excited about what this often-perverse, slightly deranged and mostly genius mind will do with a movie about World War 2's Nazi-occupied France.

Looking back at the movies that Hollywood tackled on the same subject, most have been re-creations of bloody battles or stories of specific personalities involved, but very few ever added the comic punch that Tarantino's flick will surely carry out.

In anticipation of the film, here is a list of World War II films to watch before the release of "Inglorious Basterds" o...

Playing A Special Needs Character: Roles Nobody Can Afford To Phone In

November 18th, 2008 12:08pm EST
The Ringer
Portraying people with special needs hasn't always been done in an entirely politically correct manner in Hollywood. The further back in history one looks, the more likely a film's content contains something now considered offensive.

Yet in recent forays down that complicated road, many actors have not only stepped up to the plate, they've hit home runs in roles that challenge a society's perspective on many facets of the relationships and abilities of those who simply happen to be the way they are. Each time a movie comes out with a special needs character with a dramatic or serious ...
