Ranking the Films of Terrence Malick

Ranking the Films of Terrence Malick

It took me a long time and a lot of viewings to appreciate the Terrence Malick films the way I do today. The first film of his I experienced (and make no mistake, each and every Terrence Malick film is an experience) was The New World, not long after its release on DVD. I shut […]

FILMOGRAPHY: 2011

FILMOGRAPHY: 2011

I’m finally done. Had to wait until at least July, when I got my hands on Margaret, but I decided the end of summer might be an appropriate time for a post like this. As 2012 gets ready to kick it into high gear, I can officially say goodbye to 2011. It was a solid […]

Ranking Christopher Nolan Films

Ranking Christopher Nolan Films

His first movie came out in 1998. Since then, Christopher Nolan has done and accomplished a lot. He has three Oscar nominations under his belt (none for directing, but two for Original Screenplay [Inception and Memento] and one for Best Picture [Inception]). DGA and Golden Globe nominations, BAFTA awards, Independent Spirit Awards, and much more—not […]

Ranking the James Bond Movies

Ranking the James Bond Movies

I’ve gone through all 22 James Bond films pretty thoroughly over the past month, and with the release of Skyfall, it’s time to see where they stack up against one another. There might not be many surprises found here, but I hope you enjoy and appreciate my rankings. Feel free to comment and share yours! […]

FILMOGRAPHY: 2010

FILMOGRAPHY: 2010

My 2010 movie odyssey is complete. I’ve seen exactly 100 of last year’s films, and somehow managed to post something on almost all of them. A monumental accomplishment if I may say so myself, something I’m proud of but frankly a little embarrassed for having had the time to do. Overall, I’d say it was […]

Ranking the Coen Brothers’ Movies

Ranking the Coen Brothers’ Movies

If there’s one thing I’ve learned from my two months dissecting the entire Coen Brothers filmography, it’s that even when you know to expect the unexpected, you can never quite prepare yourself for what these two minds will throw at you. From the daring unfussiness of Blood Simple, to the epic absurdity of The Big […]

Ranking David Fincher’s Movies

Ranking David Fincher’s Movies

Before I rank David Fincher’s movies, it’s worth going through the filmography and picking out themes. One thing that persists across all of Fincher’s films is the way he depicts and individual (or individuals) in a world that’s random and usually cruel, trying to navigate it the best they can. In Alien 3, Ellen Ripley […]

FILMOGRAPHY: 2008

FILMOGRAPHY: 2008

I saw 100 films in 2008. There are likely some stories and trends many would deem worthy of discussion that relate to films I haven’t seen. Obviously, I won’t be discussing those. This article is simply a general recap of the things I remember from my own personal 2008 in film. Probably the biggest thing […]
