  1. Sight & Sound's 50 best films of 2019's icon

    Sight & Sound's 50 best films of 2019

    Favs/dislikes: 4:0. In a year in which the future of cinema – of independent filmmaking, and collective film-watching – seems more fraught than ever, our poll of 100 S&S contributors has produced a list of 50 outstanding reasons for movie watching. Here below the reflections of past masters jostle with bold experiments from new voices – capped by a triumphant top movie that finds its British female director both looking back and moving forward. In our January 2020 issue we spotlight some of the themes and stories that have defined the cinema of 2019 – from post-#MeToo movies to the fortunes of the European arthouse, as well as expanded cinema and a countdown of the best TV of the year.
  2. B+ and Up's icon

    B+ and Up

    Favs/dislikes: 17:0. The A.V. Club reviews most of the cinematic landscape on a scale from A to F. All movies with a rating of B+ or higher are listed here. (Starting from January 1st 2006)
  3. Roger Ebert's Film of Year Since 1967's icon

    Roger Ebert's Film of Year Since 1967

    Favs/dislikes: 67:0. This is a list of every film that critic Roger Ebert has called the best film of that year. The list starts in 1967 and goes to 2012. *Special note: In 2008 and 2009 Ebert did not rank his choices. Therefore I went with whatever film he listed from that year on his best of the decade list.
  4. The top 250 directors and their best film according to TSPDT/DtC (2012)'s icon

    The top 250 directors and their best film according to TSPDT/DtC (2012)

    Favs/dislikes: 43:1. This list contains 250 films by the 250 greatest directors of all time, according to "they shoot pictures don't they?". Each director has one entry; their most critically acclaimed film. Two directors appear more than once on the list (Michael Powell and Stanley Donen) and all together there are 5 director couples (Powell/Pressburger, Donen/Kelly, Coen Brothers, Cooper/Schoedsack and Straub/Huillet). #76 is a TV-mini-series; #81, #151, #157, #180, #190 and #202 are short features, the rest of the entries are featured films.
  5. Paste Magazine's The 100 Best “B Movies” of All Time's icon

    Paste Magazine's The 100 Best “B Movies” of All Time

    Favs/dislikes: 14:0. From Paste: Not every film can be the Citizen Kane of its day. For every high-budget “A movie” that commands significant promotion and funding from its studio, there are piles of B movies that scratch and claw their way into existence without the benefit of things like “a budget” or “a script” in some cases. To compare them with A movies in terms of resources and immersiveness isn’t a fair proposition. Instead, discerning film fans are able to simply appreciate them for what they are. But what does “best” mean when we’re talking about films often famous for their shoddy construction? It certainly doesn’t mean “best-made.” It also doesn’t mean “worst-made,” or else films like Manos: The Hands of Fate and The Beast of Yucca Flats would make prominent appearances. They’re not on this list because the meaning of “best” here is “most entertaining,” and I defy you to be entertained by Manos without its MST3k commentary or a pound of medical-grade marijuana. If these films are painful, they’re also equally fun. Whenever possible, I tried to keep the list to more obscure titles. Although John Carpenter’s Halloween is a great example of a superbly made “B movie” in terms of budget, any film fan has most likely seen it already. Gathered here is a collection of some of the most entertainingly cheap and endearingly bad movies ever made.
  6. Paste Magazine: The 50 Best Movies of the Decade (2000-2009)'s icon

    Paste Magazine: The 50 Best Movies of the Decade (2000-2009)

    Favs/dislikes: 4:0. If comparing music from Gillian Welch and Outkast in our 50 Best Albums of the Decade is like apples and oranges, ranking films like Amélie, The Dark Knight and Mulholland Drive is more like apples, ice cream and foie gras. But despite the wild variety among our 50 Best Movies from 2000-2009, each is an exquisitely made, exceptionally satisfying piece of cinema that we believe will endure well after the decade has ended. There are masters like Martin Scorcese and Lars Von Trier, and relative newcomers like Fernando Meirelles and Anna Boden. There are documentaries, comedies and dramas, as well as animated films and even a super-hero flick. Mirroring a decade of globalism, the filmmakers are from the United States, New Zealand, Taiwan, Germany, Ireland, France, Japan, Canada, Mexico, Denmark, Romania, Thailand, Brazil, and nearly every part of the U.K. Let these be our recommendations for your Netflix queue. Personally, after reading the loving descriptions in these pages, I’ve already got films I missed the first time around—like Syndromes and a Century and Beau Travail—on the way. —Josh Jackson, Paste editor-in-chief
  7. Paste's the 100 Best Sci-fi Movies of All Time's icon

    Paste's the 100 Best Sci-fi Movies of All Time

    Favs/dislikes: 6:0. Much like its close genre cousin (nephew/niece?) the superhero film, the potential of cinematic science fiction exploded in the latter part of the 20th century thanks to technological advances that transformed special effects. Unlike superhero films, which were so stunted for so long that almost every new one makes it onto our updated 100 Best Superhero Films of All Time list, science fiction proved fertile ground for filmmakers before the likes of Industrial Light & Magic supercharged a director’s ability to exceed our imagination. Thus, this list, while filled with films from the ’80s onward, has its fair share of older films. Before we dive into it, though, let’s discuss a few things this list will not have (or at least, not have many of). Superhero films are for the most part absent. Though so many superhero stories involve the stuff of science fiction—aliens, high-tech and strange worlds—there are plenty of great sci-fi movies to include on this list without bumping 20 of them off for DC and the MCU. (We’ve made an exception for one entry because the space opera underpinnings were too strong to ignore.) We’ve also left off, for the most part, the traditional giant monster/kaiju movie for the same reason. If you want a nice roundup of Godzilla’s greatest hits, check out our own Jim Vorel’s ranking of Godzilla’s cinematic oeuvre. (For the real kaiju rank-o-phile, Jim has also taken the measure of every Godzilla monster.) Finally, joining superheroes and kaiju on the sidelines, are the post-apocalyptic (and a few mid-apocalyptic) films. Though, again, there are a few exceptions, for the most part you will not find Mad Max here, or Eli, or even that guy who is Legend. (I see you frowning—“But will there be dystopias,” you ask? Hell yeah, we got dystopias.)

  10. The Best Horror Movies's icon

    The Best Horror Movies

    Favs/dislikes: 35:1. As some people are aware, horror is the greatest genre ever and there is literally nothing better than a good horror film. It is, however, extremely under-appreciated and that means a lot of sifting to find the awesome stuff. So, this is my personal list of the 'best' horror films that I've seen. This mostly consists of personal favourites, but also others which I didn't LOVE, but are good examples of what I like about horror, offer something to the genre or that I just think are kinda cool (mostly the latter). I've not included anything that I don't like at all though, so there may be some glaringly obvious omissions, but it's probably on purpose. Sorted chronologically.
  11. A Year With Women: 103 Essential Films By Female Filmmakers's icon

    A Year With Women: 103 Essential Films By Female Filmmakers

    Favs/dislikes: 29:0. From Cinemafanatic.com: Lately I’ve become more and more frustrated with the various “best ever” lists that have been released because they rarely feature films by women, or if they do it’s usually one or two films. I think this is more a reflection of those who are polled for these kinds of lists, as well as a compounding of history on itself. For so long films by men have made up the bulk of the film canon and I think people are afraid to add new films to these revered lists. I also think many people haven’t seen very many films by women, or if they have it’s always the same handful of films. In an attempt to create a better, more inclusive list of great films by women, I polled over 500 critics, filmmakers, bloggers, historians, professors and casual film viewers, asking them to tell me what films directed (or co-directed) by women are essential viewing. Some people only responded with as little as five votes, others submitted hundreds of films. In the end, I received over 7,000 votes for 1,100+ different films. After tallying up this data, with ties factored in, I then had a list of 103 essential films directed by women. While this list is in no way the end all and be all of female filmmakers, it does include films from multiple countries, filmmakers of all ages, films from all kinds of genres and spans 9 decades. Also, I would like to point out that although the earliest film on this list is from 1935, there were several filmmakers from the silent era who were women (and whose films were in the initial 1,100+ list), including Alice Guy-Blaché, Lois Weber and others. This list should be looked at as a springboard, a way to get your feet wet with the most beloved films made by women. There are lots of resources to find even more great films by women. DirectedByWomen.com and TheDirectorList.com are two such invaluable places to start learning more about the thousands of women who have been making films since the beginning of cinema.

  17. TimeOut's 100 Best Thriller Films of All Time's icon

    TimeOut's 100 Best Thriller Films of All Time

    Favs/dislikes: 3:0. Alfred Hitchcock perfected the thriller movie with a string of classics that remain unmatched. But from today’s perspective, there’s more to them than ice blondes and wrong-men scenarios. Every decade gets the thrillers it deserves, from post-World War II film noir and Nixon-era conspiracies to even the tawdry (but loveable) ’80s erotic thrillers. We had a hard time choosing our favourites, but after much interrogation under a naked light bulb, we did it. List created in June 2018

    Submissions to the 86th Academy Awards for Best Foreign Language Film

    Favs/dislikes: 4:0. This is a list of submissions to the 86th Academy Awards for Best Foreign Language Film. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) has invited the film industries of various countries to submit their best film for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film every year since the award was created in 1956. The award is presented annually by the Academy to a feature-length motion picture produced outside the United States that contains primarily non-English dialogue. The Foreign Language Film Award Committee oversees the process and reviews all the submitted films. Nine shortlisted contenders will be revealed a week before the announcement of the Oscar nominations.
