  2. 100 Years of Indian Cinema... 100 Greatest Films's icon

    100 Years of Indian Cinema... 100 Greatest Films

    Favs/dislikes: 12:0. A list created during the turn of the 100-year anniversary of Indian cinema. It was a painstaking process, and a lot of research was done to give this list an objective feel. The list is based off AFI's list of 100 Greatest American Films and Johnathan Rosenbaum's Alternative 100. Films of all Indian languages are present, from Hindi to Marathi to Tamil to Telugu, to even Assamese. Three major criteria were considered for this list, in order of priority: 1. Cultural/artistic impact on India and the world - most important 2. Critical acclaim in India and abroad - 2nd most important 3. Popularity/cult status - 3rd (and least) important

    1988 -- The Best Year for Comedies (Or: The Funniest Year in Movies)

    Favs/dislikes: 0:0. Name one other year that has had this many great comedy films. You can't. 1988 was a huge year for comedies, both good and bad. Yes, we were punished with movies like "Earth Girls Are Easy," "High Spirits," "Johnny Be Good," "License to Drive," "Young Einstein," "Hot to Trot," "Moving," "Feds," "Twins," "Big Top Pee-Wee," "Crocodile Dundee 2," "Caddyshack 2," "Short Circuit 2," and "Police Academy 5." But... well... ok, maybe it was also the worst year for comedies. Whatever. So, it's a numbers game. And that means there was bound to be good stuff. And the good stuff was really, really good. So, without further ado, here are the 14 classic comedy films of 1988, the best year for comedies! (WAIT! There actually is some further ado. I wanted to send my apologies to "Scrooged," "Big Business" and "I'm Gonna Git You Sucka." They're nostalgic favorites of mine, but let's be real. They ain't that good. Ok, on with the show...)
  5. 20 Amazing Slow-Paced Movies You Shouldn’t Miss's icon

    20 Amazing Slow-Paced Movies You Shouldn’t Miss

    Favs/dislikes: 5:0. Some of the best, and most obvious, advice to give anyone trying to get into cinema is to just be patient, and pay attention at all times. It is axiomatic for sure, but this advice is even more prevalent when considering slow, meandering cinema. It can be tempting to wander off and lose focus, but remaining diligent is what is going to provide the best understanding and enjoyment of the content over anything else. The history of slow cinema runs the gauntlet of auteur legends such as Carl Theodor Dreyer, Ingmar Bergman, Chantal Akerman, Yasujiro Ozu, and Michelangelo Antonioni. Since the infamous boos and jeers directed towards the groundbreaking L’Avventura at Cannes, slow film has always seemed to have an uphill struggle to find a proper home. Now many filmmakers are applauded for such “relentless” pacing. In fact, from an academic and historical point-of-view, slow film is entirely antithetical to classical style filmmaking. Old (and new) films are dominated by successive cutting, varying of shots/angles, and utilizing the Kuleshov effect to its fullest for easier plotting. Usually classic Hollywood films did this so the editor could cover up any mistakes or discrepancies. Now it seems as if newer, mainstream films are vying for audience attention with as much visual stimuli as possible. However, many slow films like to have the mise-en-scène at such a minimum to where it seems as if nothing is happening. Some directors have a preference for keeping the camera at a long or medium-long shot to maintain verisimilitude, letting the scene play out in sequence. There are many fantastic slow films, but these 20 films are emblematic of what the style/technique has to offer.

    2017 Oscar Nominations - Best picture

    Favs/dislikes: 2:0.
  7. 500 Top Western Movies's icon

    500 Top Western Movies

    Favs/dislikes: 46:0. A list for the die-hard western fan! This long and diverse list of great western movies is largely derived from a list found on Cinemacom.com entitled "500 & More - A Western Lover's List". However, Cinemacom's list is heavily slanted toward the traditional western and admittedly excludes all western comedies and many good spaghetti westerns. I wanted to create a more balanced list and so I cross referenced Cinemacom's list against IMDB user ratings in the western genre and made some thoughtful modifications which add some diversity. If you love westerns I hope this list will help you explore the genre.
  8. A Year With Women: 103 Essential Films By Female Filmmakers's icon

    A Year With Women: 103 Essential Films By Female Filmmakers

    Favs/dislikes: 33:1. 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.

  23. Best Texas Films's icon

    Best Texas Films

    Favs/dislikes: 3:0. This list is inspired by the article "No Country for Bad Movies" from the June, 2011 issue of Texas Monthly. Their panel was limited by criteria such as no documentaries, nothing made-for-TV, and each film "had to really feel as if it could only have been made in Texas". Their official results comprise listings 1-10 below, in no particular order. Everything after #10 is an at-large selection made by me based on looser guidelines, namely anything partially set in or partially filmed in Texas.
