What Are the Best Movies of the Decade So Far?

What Are the Best Movies of the Decade So Far?

It’s hard to imagine we’re five years removed from the myriad “Best Movies of the Decade” posts of 2009. That was fun, and each intervening year since has produced more than enough titles worthy of appearing on such lists. Of course, most of those titles won’t eventually make it when we get to the end […]

Top 10 Movies of the “Filmspotting Era”

Top 10 Movies of the “Filmspotting Era”

Webster’s Dictionary defines Filmspotting as “a force of good in the universe.” Or maybe that was Rian Johnson. Whatever the case, my favorite film podcast turned 500 this past week, and to celebrate the occasion it held a live event where hosts Adam and Josh counted down their top five favorite films of the “Filmspotting […]

Ranking the 2011 Oscar Nominees

10.) The Kids Are All Right Lisa Cholodenko’s dramedy resonates so strongly because she manages to make this “non-traditional” family incredibly relatable. I found myself taken aback with just how insightful it is, how clever the writing is, and how strong the performances are. 9.) Biutiful Only a fool would expect an Iñárritu film to […]

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 […]

The Social Network Review

The Social Network Review

RATING: (4 STARS) Having gone through college while the ubiquitous Web site Facebook went from niche obsession to global phenomenon, I can say that I’ve spent far too many hours scouring its pages for status updates, newly posted pictures, event invites, and private messages. It has undoubtedly changed the way college students interact, and now […]
