Every DC Comics Movie Ranked From Worst to Best, Including ‘Joker’

The DC Comics universe hasn’t flooded the big screen the way Marvel ones have, but the DC brand has been hitting the big screen longer in the era of color, starting with the 1966 Adam WestBatman.” We ranked all those modern flicks, from “Batman: The Movie” to this year’s “Shazam” and “Joker.”

35. “Jonah Hex” (2010)

Despite the efforts of Josh Brolin and Michael Fassbender, this is one of the worst comic book movies of the modern era.

34. “Superman IV: The Quest for Peace” (1987)

Christopher Reeve is by far the best Superman. But “Superman IV” is a bomb in every sense — partly because of its heavy-handedness about bombs. Nuclear bombs. The film finds Superman trying to eliminate the world’s nuclear threat, but his best intentions run afoul of a silly, badly dated villain named Nuclear Man.

33. “Supergirl” (1984)

We had a female-superhero movie in 1984, and it was pure cheese. But hey at least they tried.

NYC Weekend Watch: “On Memory,” ‘The Last Temptation of Christ,’ ‘The Green Ray’ & More

Since any New York City cinephile has a nearly suffocating wealth of theatrical options, we figured it’d be best to compile some of the more worthwhile repertory showings into one handy list. Displayed below are a few of the city’s most reliable theaters and links to screenings of their weekend offerings — films you’re not likely to see in a theater again anytime soon, and many of which are, also, on 35mm. If you have a chance to attend any of these, we’re of the mind that it’s time extremely well-spent.

First Official Trailer for Ensemble Horror Comedy 'Corporate Animals'

"It's like our own private escape room." Screen Media Films has revealed the first official trailer for a goofy horror comedy film called Corporate Animals, which was a last minute addition to the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year. The ensemble film played in the Midnight category at the festival, and it's hitting theaters starting next month. From Creep & Creep 2 director Patrick Brice, Corporate Animals is about a group of employees on a "corporate team-building" excursion visiting a cave in New Mexico. When disaster strikes, they end up stuck together inside a cave and, of course, they all go mad. Starring Demi Moore, Ed Helms, Jessica Williams, Karan Soni, Isiah Whitlock Jr., Martha Kelly, Dan Bakkedahl, Calum Worthy, Jennifer Kim, Nasim Pedrad, Frank Bond, and Wendy Meredith. It seems like they were trying to make another Office Space, but this looks especially dumb. Here's hoping it's actually entertaining. Here's the

10 Hidden Jokes You Missed In Office Space

The ‘90s were a relatively mundane time of peace and stability, as the world quickly transitioned from the analog-reliant Cold War days to the digital age. It was during this time that movies showing just how boring things became popular, with one of the best-known examples being Mike Judge’s Office Space – the relatable story of three employees who get so fed up with their inane jobs, they embezzle the company they work for.

The Art of Self-Defense Review

Jesse Eisenberg stars in an absurdist take on toxic masculinity that never quite lands its punch.

facebook

twitter

tumblr

Riley StearnsThe Art of Self-Defense is what might happen if Fight Club was directed by somebody like Yorgos Lanthimos (The Favourite), only not quite as good. Stearns’ absurdist black comedy does address many of the same issues of toxic masculinity and male insecurity as David Fincher’s 1999 cult classic, examining how both find expression through wanton acts of violence and undercurrents of homoeroticism. That it does so through a vaguely surreal lens, with arch dialogue and purposely antiquated details, emanates more from the Lanthimos section of Stearns’ personal film collection.

Fincher’s film took a sharp, focused stick to everything in its path, literally destroying the world at the end; The Art of Self-Defense is smaller and never finds its footing tonally. It’s self-consciously quirky, exacerbating the gulf between its funnier moments and darker,

After over 230 acting credits, Stephen Root is primed for his first Emmy nomination thanks to ‘Barry’

After over 230 acting credits, Stephen Root is primed for his first Emmy nomination thanks to ‘Barry’
Did you know that Stephen Root, an actor with over 230 credits on his resume, has never received an Emmy nomination? Surprising, I know. But the guy who starred in “NewsRadio” and “King of the Hill” and made countless guest appearances in a slew of other TV favorites (not to mention more than a few movies) has been unrecognized in the awards game thus far. That could change this year with a primo season of “Barry” that has put his performance squarely in the spotlight.

See Emmy spotlight: ‘Barry’ exceeds its strong debut with a killer Season 2

The second year of HBO’s comedy series finds hitman-turned-thespian Barry Berkman (Bill Hader) dealing with the repercussions of murdering Detective Janice Moss (Paula Newsome), who was investigating his nefarious behavior while dating his acting coach, Gene Cousineau (Henry Winkler).

Is America Ready for Mayor Pete?

Is America Ready for Mayor Pete?
Listen to an audio version of this story below:

Plumbers and Steamfitters Local Union 33 has a sculpture of two 20-foot wrenches emerging from the mud out by its pocked parking lot in Des Moines, Iowa. Inside, a public bathroom features a shower adorned with gone-gray towels and multiple containers of industrial-strength body wash, presumably for cleaning up after some kind of toxic toilet encounter. It is all very manly. If this were a Joe Biden event, the ex-vp would just grunt “Scranton, Scranton” for 30 minutes before waving and disappearing back into his motorcade.

Jon Hamm on the Archangel Gabriel in ‘Good Omens,’ Faith in Humanity and Breaking Through the Noise

Jon Hamm on the Archangel Gabriel in ‘Good Omens,’ Faith in Humanity and Breaking Through the Noise
Jon Hamm was a longtime fan of Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman’s novel “Good Omens” before Amazon and the BBC developed it into a series, and said he signed on for the show without even reading Gaiman’s scripts. Hamm stars as a nattily dressed Archangel Gabriel in the series, which he describes as part buddy-comedy and part thriller, with some horror thrown in.

Hamm talked to Variety about playing God’s messenger – and how he originally had the celestial character pegged as a posh Brit.

You’ve spoken about your admiration for the book. Can that add pressure – to live up to what is on the page?

I suppose it can; it didn’t necessarily for me. I was just pleased to be asked to be part of it. I haven’t had that experience before, to get an opportunity to work on something that I enjoyed in a completely different aspect.
