Brain twisting mystery, abrasive moral quandaries, cinematic classics and metaphysical westerns today as we bring you the best films on TV.
With Sam Mendes presenting '1917' as if it unfolds in a single take, what are some of the best examples of this trick in the history of Hollywood?
It is regularly voted as one of the best films of all time, has dialogue to die for and one of the all-time greatest casts ever assembled: but how much do you really know about Martin Scorsese’s gangster epic ‘Goodfellas’?
Things could have been so different for Ray Liotta. Rather than becoming the drug-addled gangster Henry Hill in ‘Goodfellas’, he could have been the Caped Crusader in Gotham City. “I wish I’d handled my career differently but, you know, hindsight,” he told The Irish News.
If you said ‘Nothing Lasts Forever’ by Roderick Thorp you can have five points. It’s actually a sequel to a book called ‘The Detective’ that had been adapted into a film starring Frank Sinatra in 1968, but he was too old to play him when they decided to adapt the sequel for the screen in the 80s. It was briefly planned as a ‘Commando’ follow up too but Arnie turned it down, paving the way for Bruce Willis to play John McClane – or Joe Leland as he is in the book – in the action classic ‘Die Hard’.
