Let's Remember The Many Times Sam Raimi And Coen Brothers Teamed Up

As we prepare to bear witness to "Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness," let's take a look back through director Sam Raimi's career to see where it intersects with two recurring partners of his, Joel and Ethan Coen. This can seem an odd pairing — the Coens are cynics with as many comedies to their name as crime thrillers, while Raimi's a schlockmeister with a love of horror and comic books. However, the friendship between the three very different filmmakers goes back decades. Without their mutual support, neither Raimi's nor the Coens' careers may have turned out as they did.

Power to the People: Utility Regulation, Coen Brothers Style

Tree chippers had a good year in 1996. In visual terms, the most memorable thing about Fargo was the sight of Steve Buscemi’s dismembered body being fed into a tree chipper. It wasn’t exactly heartwarming family entertainment. The other tree chipper that came to prominence in 1996 was...

The 5 best movies by the Jewish Coen Brothers

Movies directed by the Coen brothers (Joel and Ethan) always carry a bitter aesthetic, like getting a glimpse of people living on the edge of society and the rules that encapsulate them.

Those Crazy Coen Brothers

“Blood Simple” was the first movie these guys made. It was low budget, with a small cast, since that’s all they could afford. They wrote, directed and produced. It made a few dollars, when it came out in 1984. It would be the beginning of an offbeat career in filmdom that continues today.

DC's Legends of Tomorrow: David Ramsey Teases Coen Brothers-like "Stressed Western"

Last week on DC's Legends of Tomorrow, Sara Lance (Caity Lotz) was finally reunited with the rest of the Legends and while there are still some things that will need to be dealt with - Sara's new status as a human clone/alien hybrid for instance - the upcoming "Stressed Western" will see Sara getting back in the saddle for a new adventure with the team. And "back in the saddle" isn't just a clever pun; the episode will see the heroes head to the Old West in pursuit of an alien and the episode will also see Arrow alum David Ramsey direct. The episode is one of several within the Arrowverse that Ramsey is directing this television season, but it's his first on Legends and now, he's giving fans an idea of what to expect in Sunday's episode, comparing it to a Coen Brothers film.
