The Most Critically Divisive Films of the Last 17 Years, According to Gizmodo Study
When “mother!” opened nationwide last month, it divided critics in a way no film had in a very long time. For every review that called the movie a masterpiece, there was one detesting it as nothing but Darren Aronofsky’s sick, bloated metaphor. Such a polarizing response can be exciting, and it would appear based on a new study that Aronofsky’s latest really does rank as one of the most divisive films of the 21st century.

The Gizmodo UK team has released their official ranking of the 50 most critically divisive movies of the last 17 year, and it’s a list that includes the likes of such provocateurs as Lars von Trier, Terrence Malick, Jonathan Glazer, Harmony Korine, David O. Russell, and more. Gizmodo looked at over 9,000 films listed on Metacritic with at least 40 reviews.

Zack Snyder Movies Ranked from Worst to Best

Zack Snyder Movies Ranked from Worst to Best
Zack Snyder is possibly the most polarizing mainstream filmmaker of the 21st century. His name alone is enough to launch a thousand angry tweets, and the most passionate writing about his work is exclusively found in the comment sections of websites like this one. Snyder’s critics really seem to hate him, and Snyder’s fans really seem to hate his critics. At this point, a Marvel / DC movie crossover might be a lot more plausible than finding any sort of common ground between those two camps. Is Snyder a master or a hack? A misunderstood myth-maker, or a meathead with a movie camera?

One thing we can say for sure is that no contemporary auteur has more awesomely investigated what it means to be a hero in a fallen world. The Pasadena native has leveraged a remarkable music video portfolio into a big screen career filled by obsessions with power and its corruption.

Spider-Man Star Breaks His Nose on Avengers 4 Set
It's unclear how much longer Avengers 4 has to go, with production taking place in Atlanta as we speak. But it looks as though Tom Holland is ready to wrap his role as Peter Parker in the movie. And he has done so in spectacular fashion. He has broken his nose. He says this on a video he posted on social media.

"Who said acting was easy, huh? Broken nose number 3. What a way to finish a movie."

Yes, you heard right. This is the third time Tom Holland has broken his nose on the set of a movie. The young actor, who made his Marvel debut in Captain America: Civil War before headline this past summer's Spider-Man: Homecoming, is quite the acrobat, and is known for doing crazy backflips and other body-wrecking forms of gymnastics. It's unclear what kind of insurance policy Marvel has out on this kid, but it's

'Grindhouse' Director Robert Rodriguez: I Cast Rose McGowan to Spite Weinstein

'Grindhouse' Director Robert Rodriguez: I Cast Rose McGowan to Spite Weinstein
Grindhouse co-director Robert Rodriguez said in a statement Friday that he and ex-girlfriend Rose McGowan once schemed to get back at Harvey Weinstein in the most industry way possible: by working together on the 2007 cult flick.

Rodriguez, who dated McGowan from 2006 to 2009, revealed that he knew about the 1997 Sundance Film Festival incident that McGowan made public earlier this month, and that he intentionally cast the actress in a "bad ass" role as a way to spite the media mogul.

Robert Rodriguez Says Casting Rose McGowan in ‘Grindhouse’ Was an F-U to Harvey Weinstein (Exclusive)
Robert Rodriguez says he knew about Harvey Weinstein’s alleged sexual assault of Rose McGowan and accuses the mogul of burying the release of “Grindhouse” out of spite. Rodriguez and McGowan were in a relationship from 2006 to 2009, and the director tells Variety in a statement that he was inspired to cast McGowan as a “bad ass” character in the film as a way of getting back at her alleged assailant.

McGowan has accused Weinstein of raping her in 1997 while she was appearing in “Scream,” a horror hit that was released by Miramax, his former company. Dozens of women have accused Weinstein of assault and harassment. His accusers include Gwyneth Paltrow, Angelina Jolie, Mira Sorvino, and Cara Delevingne.

Rodriguez worked with Miramax, and later the Weinstein Co. for years, primarily releasing films through Dimension, a genre label run by Harvey’s brother Bob. Films he made for the companies include “From Dusk Til Dawn,” “Spy Kids,” and “The Faculty

Michael Myers Returns, This Time to the Smallest Screen

Sometimes, independent films are at the basis of some long-running and famous movie franchises. Just think of Robert Rodriguez’s El Mariachi, made on a budget of approximately $7,000, that has spawned two insanely successful sequels (aside from earning numerous awards, big bucks at the box office, and becoming an inspiration for beginner filmmakers all over the world). One of the indie movies that has spawned not only a successful franchise but a series of copycats and epigones as well was Halloween, written and directed by science fiction / horror master John Carpenter.

Next year, Michael Myers turns 40, and in celebration both John Carpenter and Jamie Lee Curtis are returning to the franchise to produce and star in a new instalment in the series. And Michael will also return this year to the smallest of screens – most likely sometime around October – in the form of a video slot machine set to be released at All Slots Canada.

Lone Wolf and Cub Remake Moves Forward with Seven Writer
After languishing in development for the past five years, it seems Paramount is ready to move forward with the manga adaptation Lone Wolf and Cub. The studio has brought on screenwriter Andrew Kevin Walker (Se7en) to tackle the adaptation, with Justin Lin set to direct. The filmmaker has been attached to this project since 2012, and he is also slated to produce with Marisa McMahon and her Kamala Films company.

Paramount has had the rights to this project since 2003, with director Darren Aronofsky attached to direct at one point. When Justin Lin came aboard back in 2012, the husband and wife writing team of David Webb Peoples and Janet Peoples (12 Monkeys) were tasked with adapting the Japanese manga created by Kazuo Koike, although it doesn't seem that they're attached to this adaptation anymore. It hasn't been confirmed if any elements from their script will remain intact, or if Andrew Kevin Walker will

Robert Rodriguez Calls Harvey Weinstein ‘Truly Disgusting’ and Rose McGowan Has Something to Say About That
Add pioneering indie filmmaker Robert Rodriguez to the list of former Harvey Weinstein associates now condemning the fallen media mogul. Rodriguez released a statement to Deadline:

“I find the behavior of Harvey Weinstein truly disgusting, both what he did and how he covered his tracks, and it makes me wonder how many others can’t come forward and tell their full story because of legal and personal intimidation. His repulsive behavior was an abuse of power. Thankfully, he’s now discovering what true power is.”

Rodriguez has a long history with Weinstein, starting with 1995’s “Four Rooms,” which was distributed by Miramax, and then franchises such as “From Dusk Till Dawn,” “The Faculty,” “Spy Kids,” and “Sin City,” which came out through the Weinsteins’ Dimension Films label.
