  4. Review: The Whitewashing Isn’t The Only Terrible Thing About Exodus: Gods And Kings

    Scott's epic mashup of camp and prestige fails to succeed.

    The movie almost reaches the point of "so bad its good" when focusing on the villains; but ultimately, Exodus: Gods and Kings fails to go far enough with old-fashioned cheese, so it remains a movie so bad it is just bad. So bad, it is one of the worst movies of 2014.

  6. Ridley Scott Blames Lack of Diversity in Exodus on Needing Money

    Women are too hard to animate, brown people are too expensive to make films about.

    There are polite and considerate ways to say that in the face of a modern age of Biblical scholarship and historical study, the pressures of a racist Hollywood system forced you to cast only white people in the lead roles of a movie about a known era of Middle Eastern history. This is not one of them.

  10. Ridley Scott Offers an Incredibly Dissatisfying Explanation of Why Exodus: Gods and Kings Is So Very White

    I'm not impressed.

    I'm listening, Ridley. Not that I think there could possibly be a good reason for whitewashing Moses and Rameses in Exodus: Gods and Kings. But hell, give it a shot. Wow me.

  20. It’s Official: Christian Bale Will No Longer Play Batman

    Holy Rusted Metal Batman!

    It is official: Christian Bale is hanging up the cowl. He will no longer play Batman-- for the future Justice League movie, or in any other capacity. The news isn't surprising. He's been open about how he'll only wear that suit for one man: Christopher Nolan, and since Nolan's been pretty adamant about not returning to Gotham City, well... Bale first donned the cape in 2005 for Batman Begins, relinquishing the costume last year after The Dark Knight Rises. He had a solid seven year run and now feels that it is time to move on.
