Previous Next 1 of 10 Fictionalizing war can be controversial. After all, lionizing participants in bloody conflict seems to go against the notion that violence is bad — that wars should not be remembered romantically, but regretfully and respectfully. We remember wars not just for their death tolls, but also for the bravery of those who fought in them and those who worked to end them. Memorial Day originated in 1868 as “Decoration Day,” an opportunity for Americans to mourn soldiers who perished in the Civil War. Today, the holiday celebrates the service of those enlisted in the U.S. military — current and former — honoring their commitment to the country and its ideals, and their sacrifices in its name. Depictions of war on the big screen tend to do the same, often remembering real-life heroes who gave all they had to protect their nation. With that in mind, we’ve compiled a list of the best and most inspirational war movies … [Read more...] about The 10 best streaming war movies
Chet Hanks’ ex-girlfriend is suing him for one million dollars claiming he physically and verbally abused her during their relationship. Kiana Parker filed a lawsuit on Tuesday in Richmond, Texas, alleging Hanks of perpetrating “an ever-escalating pattern of domestic abuse.” Parker also claims that she tried multiple times to contact Hanks’ famous actor parents, Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson, to alert them about the alleged abuse, but they never responded to her messages. “This is about violence within the confines of a relationship between a man and a woman, a man who mentally and physically and psychologically battered, Kiana Parker,” attorney Kevin Murray said during the Tuesday press conference. Parker’s second attorney, D’Angelo Lowe, slammed Hanks for making a “mockery” of black women. “I’m sorry, Chet Hanks would have been charged by now. Instead, he has not been charged and has made a mockery of Black women in the criminal justice system,” Lowe said, “by proclaiming … [Read more...] about Tom Hanks Son Chet Hanks Sued for $1 Million over Alleged Abuse
Photo: a24 Not every actor can go normcore . Wipe off Johnny Depp’s stage makeup, and you’ve got an actor who seems ill at ease in his own skin. The athletic Zac Efron comes to life when he’s moving, but his inner light goes out when forced to be still. And though Kristen Wiig is skilled at playing subtle, there comes a point — as in the recent Hateship, Loveship — where her darting, observant eyes indicate an intelligence that’s supposed to elude her more simple character. You’d be forgiven for expecting those same things to trip up Tom Hardy, whose new film Locke is a one-man show — and the titular character, construction foreman Ivan Locke, is quite an ordinary man at that. The 36-year-old Hardy is best known for his physically outsize roles — think of the masked Bane in The Dark Knight Rises , or the fearsomely muscled MMA fighter in Warrior — and rarely repeats an onscreen look twice. Even his buff body is a facade: Though Hardy strikes an aggressive, bare-chested … [Read more...] about ’s Tom Hardy Will Trust His Directors Implicitly — Until He Doesn’t
