    100 All-Time Best Movies for History Buffs

    Favs/dislikes: 56:3. History isn’t marked by years, but events. Being a history buff means looking at the way major ideas or happenings played out and how they had an effect on everything from politics to the economy. War, invention, discovery, love: the history of the world has been shaped by the way we deal with these things. The movies on this list are great ways to take a closer look at the moments that changed history. [b]NOTE[/b]: The list is constructed out of seven minor lists, as noted below: #01 - 13: Ancient History #14 - 29: Medieval Times #30 - 46: Exploration & Colonization #47 - 53: The American Revolution #54 - 68: The American Civil War #69 - 81: World War II #82 - 100: The 20th Century

    The 25 Greatest Legal Movies

    Favs/dislikes: 22:0. What would Hollywood do without lawyers? In a town built on copyrights and cosmetic surgery, lawyers have done far more than pen the small print in studio contracts or post bail for hollow-eyed stars on the way to and from rehab. From the incisive Henry Drummond and the droll Mr. Lincoln to the callow Danny Kaffee and the regal Atticus Finch, lawyers have provided some of Hollywood’s most memorable cinematic heroes and some of its most honorable and thoughtful films. Earlier this year, the ABA Journal asked 12 prominent lawyers who teach film or are con­nected to the business to choose what they regard as the best movies ever made about lawyers and the law. We’ve collated their various nominees to produce our jury’s top picks.

  8. Natural Horror & Related Movies's icon

    Natural Horror & Related Movies

    Favs/dislikes: 16:0. Natural horror is a sub-genre of horror films featuring nature running amok in the form of mutated beasts, carnivorous insects, and normally harmless animals or plants turned into cold-blooded killers. Many movies on this list are only loosely related to the genre of Natural Horror. Not only does it include various “animal-movies” in the genres of thriller, drama and comedy, but it is also built around rather loose definitions of exactly what “animals” is, hence the inclusion of various types of monsters, cryptids, plants, dinosaur and other creatures. And as always with these kinds of list: suggestions of movies that should be added or removed are always welcome.

    Rotten Tomatoes: Greatest Shakespeare Movies

    Favs/dislikes: 15:0. Filmmakers have long mined the riches of The Bard to create some of the most lasting and universal stories in the movie history. With his 38 collected tragedies, comedies, and historical epics, Shakespeare remains one of Hollywood's most prolific screenwriters - after all, his works have been turned into films many times over, adapted splendidly by the likes of Franco Zefferelli (Romeo and Juliet), Baz Lurhmann (William Shakespeare's Romeo & Juliet), Kenneth Branagh (Henry V, Much Ado About Nothing, Hamlet, Love's Labour's Lost, As You Like It), Orson Welles (Othello) and Akira Kurosawa (Ran).

  11. Stanley Kubrick's Top Ten Favorite Films's icon

    Stanley Kubrick's Top Ten Favorite Films

    Favs/dislikes: 15:0. In this choice one can detect a broadminded attitude towards very dissimilar aesthetic experiences, with a preference nevertheless for European art films strongly colored by a pessimistic view of life (Fellini, Antonioni, Bergman); and a predilection for American directors known for their larger-than-life, as also for their marginal position with regard to the system (Welles, Huston, Chaplin, W.C. Fields, Howard Hughes, Wellman).

    Rotten Tomatoes: 25 Best Romantic Comedies

    Favs/dislikes: 14:0. With Valentine’s Day on the horizon, we at RT are aware you’ve probably already thought of picking up flowers and candy for that special someone. However, if you’re looking for the perfect cinematic Cupid’s arrow, we’re here to help, in the form of RT’s Best Romantic Comedies! Nothing caps a romantic Valentine’s Day like watching glamorous couples fall in love -- often while trading witty barbs. And if you find yourself dateless, don’t despair: the likes of Cary Grant, Audrey Hepburn, Woody Allen, and Meg Ryan make for good company. However, determining what made the cut wasn’t without its complications (kinda like love itself). We utilized a weighted system that factors in both Tomatometer and number of reviews, and each movie needed 30 reviews to qualify. Given the fact there’s hardly a lack of romance and comedy in the movies, we decided to winnow our candidates down to lighthearted films that primarily focus on love affairs. So dim the lights, pop the bubbly, and get cozy with our compendium of the best reviewed romantic comedies of all time!

Kitchen sink realism (or kitchen sink drama) is a term coined to describe a British cultural movement which developed in the late 1950s and early 1960s in theatre, art, novels, film and television plays, whose 'heroes' usually could be described as angry young men. It used a style of social realism, which often depicted the domestic situations of working-class Britons living in rented accommodation and spending their off-hours drinking in grimy pubs, to explore social issues and political controversies.
