    Complex's 50 Indie Movies You Need To See Before You Die

    Favs/dislikes: 6:0. Today, June 21 2013, is the official start of summer, a technical bit of information Hollywood's studio execs have never given a damn about. For them and their expensive beach-season tentpole movies, summer officially begins once May calendars are introduced—meaning, since Iron Man 3, moviegoers have been steadily bombarded with gargantuan flicks the likes of Man of Steel and Fast & Furious 6, and, with World War Z opening, that's not about to stop anytime soon. What's a cinema buff to do? As always, seek out the nearest independent theater and/or art-house venue and drop cash on the latest no-budget films worthy of such concerted efforts. Without that kind of open-mindedness, DIY moviemaking would cease to exist, robbing cinephiles of flicks that could potentially rival the hallowed likes of Reservoir Dogs, The Terminator, and Night of the Living Dead. All of which, yes, were initially inconspicuous, independently made passion projects. Need some palate cleansers to help you fall back from seeing Man of Steel for the third time? Please consult our list of the 50 indie movies you need to see before you die, because, you know, a terrible, tragic accident could happen while you're en route to watch Channing Tatum save the world next week in White House Down. Use this to avoid any afterlife regrets. (complex.com)

    The New Republic's The 100 Most Significant Political Films of All Time

    Favs/dislikes: 3:0. "We wanted to do something special for this double July-August issue of The New Republic, but we weren’t sure what; then it hit us that summer is movie season, so why not combine that fact with this magazine’s great passion and come up with a list of history’s best political movies? (TNR, by the way, is no stranger to motion pictures. For decades, the magazine published the work of famed twentieth-century critic Stanley Kauffmann, and we continue to run trenchant film analysis today.) It was that germ of an idea that led us to reach out to J. Hoberman, one of the leading film critics of the last half-century, to curate this project. Hoberman changed it from “best” to “most significant” and led us in assembling a list of around 130 critics to whom we wrote, asking them to participate. We were pleased that 79 wrote back with their lists." (The New Republic)

    Rolling Stone's The 100 Greatest TV Shows of All Time (2022)

    Favs/dislikes: 2:0. "A ranking of the most game-changing, side-splitting, tear-jerking, mind-blowing, world-building, genre-busting programs in television history, from the medium’s inception in the early 20th century through the ever-metastasizing era of Peak TV." (Alan Sepinwall) - #16 Twin Peaks (1990-1991) also includes Twin Peaks (2017) - #66 is 'The Daily Show With Jon Stewart' (1999-2015)

    Films Fatale's The Best 100 Films of the 1980's

    Favs/dislikes: 0:0. "(...) Why is it that film gets a bad reputation when it is attached to the ‘80s? Have we learned to try and ignore a time in film history full of creative exploration that didn’t only result in duds? Do we assume that the end of New Hollywood means the start of safe cinema once more? Did the film franchises leave sour tastes in our mouths? It’s unfortunate, because I was handed the biggest mixed bag I have received so far. If anything, it’s a mixed bag that makes looking back feel worthwhile. What cult films have stuck with us? Which films of our youths did we identify with more as adults? How difficult was it to view these countless films (including the honourable mentions) without nostalgia goggles (or — the opposite — the expectation that cinema’s most unnecessarily ignored era would not deliver once more)? I have come to adore this era, and I hope that I can convince you to do the same. Either way, there is a lot to explore. Here are the best one hundred films of the 1980’s." (Andreas Babiolakis)
  11. Films Fatale's The Best 100 Films of the 1990's's icon

    Films Fatale's The Best 100 Films of the 1990's

    Favs/dislikes: 0:0. "(...) These one hundred works represent shifting social and political tides, contrastive works (meant to offset some of the safer mainstream films being released during this time), and obsessions with colour (you’ll eventually come across a string of “red” related films; it was unintentional, I swear!). The ‘90s was an interesting time: it feels like the first real moment (working in reverse order, of course) where past masters and then-prodigies clashes together, creating the insanely difficult task of limiting this list to just one hundred titles. I cut a plethora of favourites; some may be yours, and many were definitely mine. I also understand that this decade is meaningful to many of you, as I start to dig deeply into the childhoods and fond memories of our readers (which will only continue for a while, the further back we go). I hope you understand that going forward. For us, as challenging as this was, it only means that I am even more confident in the selected works that made the cut. Here are the best one hundred films of the 1990’s." (Andreas Babiolakis)
  12. Films Fatale's The Best 100 Films of the 2000's's icon

    Films Fatale's The Best 100 Films of the 2000's

    Favs/dislikes: 0:0. "(...) Many of these one hundred films longed for the days of old, while others awaited — or feared — what was to come next. Cyber-worlds mixed in with dystopias. Biopics coexisted with reinterpretations. Statements of old continued to ring true (and they still do). The internet started off as a somewhat reliable source, but it became the controller of all by the decade’s end. This helped misunderstood films gain new life, and popular films be spoiled by selfish social media users. These seemed like uncertain times, but in a more blissful sense than now. Twenty years ago, we thought the world was going to end because of a glitch. Nothing happened, and it seemed like we had an eternity ahead of us. Now, I look back at the finest works of that decade, which feels so alien to me now. Here are the best one hundred films of the 2000’s." (Andreas Babiolakis)
  13. Films Fatale's The Best 100 Films of the 2010's's icon

    Films Fatale's The Best 100 Films of the 2010's

    Favs/dislikes: 0:0. (...) Narrowing down this decade’s finest features to one hundred was far from easy. I knew we had a strong era long before I worked on this list, but I had no idea how many of my beloved favourites would be culled for, well, my other favourites I liked a little bit more. The 2010’s embraced a lot of this era’s nightmares with open arms, as if film was the necessity for the voids in our souls during a rough patch in the social age. One hundred films are now presented to you, at your disposal, in one, long, continuous scroll. The hard work of others is incredibly simple to enjoy, and I hope you do just that. Here are the top one hundred films of the 2010’s. (Andreas Babiolakis)
  14. IndieWire's The Best American Independent Films of the 21st Century's icon

    IndieWire's The Best American Independent Films of the 21st Century

    Favs/dislikes: 0:0. A note on our methodology: - We eventually narrowed our consideration to the Best American Indies of the 21st Century. - We then hemmed things in further, tasking ourselves with selecting one film to represent the best of each year. - Every title (seriously, every title) was cross-checked for qualification; country and studio of origin was verified; and the budget requirement was capped at $16 million. Competition years were decided by the date of wide release in U.S. theaters (not festival debuts, for instance). - The most frequently nominated films were compiled into a final ballot voted on by the entire IndieWire staff one last time. - Those results were given closer curatorial consideration by our top editors, combed for repeat directors, and are now submitted as the most complete answer we could give to an impossible question. At least, as of this moment. Things are, of course, always shifting. Listed chronologically, these are the 24 Best American Independent Films for each year of the 21st century. We have also listed runner-ups for each year so that our readers can get an even fuller look at the films we love. (indiewire.com)

    The Cinemaholic's 25 Best Low Budget Movies of All Time

    Favs/dislikes: 0:0. (...) Films were a business and an industry much before they were considered art. The commercial aspect of cinema is almost always inseparable from its artistic endeavours. Even a bad film takes a ton of money to make just as a good one does. However, there are some filmmakers who have managed to make the most of their resources without compromising on the quality of work. Here’s the list of top films made under a million dollars and are considered great. So, go ahead and learn from these cheapest and inexpensive movies. These are the best low budget movies of all time. (Shariq Ansari)
