    The 100 Best Film Noirs of All Time

    Favs/dislikes: 0:0. This list acknowledges the classics of the genre, the big-budget studio noirs and the cheapest of B noirs made on the fringes of the Hollywood studio system. But we’ve also taken a more expansive view of noir, allowing room for supreme examples of the proto-noirs that anticipated the genre and the neo-noirs that resulted from the genre being rebooted in the midst of the Cold War, seemingly absorbing the world’s darkest and deepest fears.
  5. 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

    Favs/dislikes: 0:0. Welcome to our big list of the most Essential 1980s movies, showcasing 140 of the decade’s best and most iconic Fresh (and not-so-Fresh) movies. That’s right, we recommend some Rotten additions for your ’80s movie playlists, because this is one decade only fully experienced with the good, the bad, and the feathered neon. Any ’80s movie with a Tomatometer was considered for our Essentials guide, and after including the truly timeless material (Raiders of the Lost Ark, Raging Bull), we focused on works that represented the cinematic trends and social themes of the era. Some of those include the fantasy epic (NeverEnding Story, Princess Bride), teen movies (Breakfast Club, Weird Science), the new corporate overlord (Wall Street, Trading Places), women making strides in the workplace (Baby Boom, Working Girl), and rising hip-hop culture (Krush Groove, Do the Right Thing). Fire up the flux capicator and cue the workout montage because it’s time for Rotten Tomatoes’ 140 Essential ’80s Movies!

    Horror.media's The 50 Best Action Horror Movies, Ranked (2017)

    Favs/dislikes: 3:0. Ranked list, compiled by Tyler Callaway. [quote]I want to present everyone with a fun list that is full of great movies that really can be a great change of pace from watching Friday the 13th or Poltergeist. While those are both great films, they can get old after a while. This Halloween could be much more action filled. The action-horror genre is one that has not been getting much attention in recent years, but with the recent success of films like Don't Breathe and The Purge franchise, maybe we will start to see a trend. There are still plenty of action and gore filled horrors to make a huge list for them though, and that's what i'm going to do.[/quote]

    Paste's 50 Best Samurai Films of All Time

    Favs/dislikes: 4:0. What is it about the samurai that captivates Westerners? The armor and swords, the reverent attitude and the reputation for supreme competence in warfare are all pretty impressive, but they don’t get to the heart of it. I believe it might be that at the core of every samurai is the code of bushido, the feudal Japanese equivalent of chivalry, with its one edict above all else: If the time should call for it, protect your lord with your life. That self-abnegation in service of something greater than oneself is the question at the heart of the works of generation after generation of directors as they revisit the samurai film. And it’s why we’re so excited to present Paste’s list of the 50 Best Samurai Films of All Time. This is a broad genre, just from a the standpoint of how much history falls within it. The American Western falls more or less within the bounds of the 19th Century, yet samurai films offer centuries of warfare, palace intrigue and a drawn-out end of an era for the history and film buff to chew on. Samurai flicks really have something for everyone. Fans of period pieces will love the intricate set design, costuming and portrayals of towering historical figures in the midst of epic conflict. If operatic drama is more your speed, you can sit back and watch committed actors dine upon lavish scenery. Action junkies get to watch riveting combat with cool-looking swords. And fans of film history in general will delight in tracing the lineage of some of the West’s cinematic touchstones to their forebears in the East, as well as some stellar Eastern adaptations of Western canon. It is with solemn bushido reverence that I invite you to join us as we dive into 50 films that exemplify this mightiest of genres. We’ve formed this list with a careful eye toward the classic jidaigeki (Age of Civil War period piece) and chambara (swordfighting) films that typify the genre in Japan, but also to some of the weird and subversive outliers that challenge audience expectations or the mythic idea of the samurai code. And because this genre is so deeply steeped in the history of its homeland, we’ve also arranged this list in a loose sort of historical chronological order and added some context that might help clarify the settings of some of the movies. In the interest of keeping things tight, we’ve excluded anime entries, but for a definitive list that includes some animated samurai action, check out Paste’s 100 Best Anime Films.

    Paste's 100 Greatest War Movies

    Favs/dislikes: 3:0. War. What is it good for? Well, if nothing else, then a tidy template for cinema: conflict, clear protagonists and antagonists, heightened emotions, and a generally unpredictable, lawless atmosphere which—as per the western—has since the dawn of cinema offered an elastic dramatic environment in which filmmakers can explore men at both their best and worst. And make no mistake, the war movie is almost always about men. It’s the most masculine of genres, the fact that armies have throughout history often been almost exclusively male seeing to it that men almost always dominate these things. It’s a genre that emphasizes action and existential angst. It’s also a malleable genre, and one that could broadly include all manner of films that we ultimately ruled out of the running in this list. With this top 100, we’ve made the decision to include only movies whose wars are based on historical conflicts, so none of the likes of Edge of Tomorrow or Starship Troopers. We’ve picked films that deal with soldiers, soldiering and warfare directly, meaning wartime movies set primarily away from conflict, often told largely or exclusively from the civilian perspective—a category which includes such classics as The Cranes Are Flying and Hope & Glory, Grave of the Fireflies and Forbidden Games—didn’t make the cut. Post-war dramas, like Ashes and Diamonds and Germany, Year Zero, as well as films that go to war for only a fraction of the running time, such as From Here to Eternity and Born on the Fourth of July, were also excluded. Some tough choices were made on what actually constituted a “war movie.” Resistance dramas feature in this list, but Casablanca doesn’t appear. Likewise Robert Bresson’s A Man Escaped and Sidney Lumet’s The Hill. It was decided ultimately that the war was too much a peripheral element in these films. On the other hand, while both western The Good, The Bad and The Ugly and biopic The Imitation Game feature war prominently, they, like Casablanca (a romance with noir and thriller elements) plus A Man Escaped and The Hill (both prison movies), belong more obviously to other genres. We’ve also decided not to include movies which focus on the Holocaust here; those are set to appear in another feature entirely. Regarding the films that do feature here: our 100 hail from all over the world. These films were released as recently as last year and as far back as 1930. They range from comical to harrowing, action-packed to quietly introspective, proudly gung-ho to deeply anti-war. They are a diverse set of movies; they are also worthy of being called the 100 greatest war movies ever made. Published May 2017

  18. Hitfix: Daniel Fienberg's Top 31 Movies of the Decade's icon

    Hitfix: Daniel Fienberg's Top 31 Movies of the Decade

    Favs/dislikes: 0:0. For me, this list is a lark. While I've been counting down the Top 31 TV Shows of the Decade, my movie-centric colleagues Gregory Ellwood and Drew McWeeny handled the big screen, with Greg offering his Top 25 of The Aughts and Drew doing an exhaustive Top 50. Let's just say that HitFix has already done an extra job of covering the best of the decade in movies, with or without me. My only pause in my Top 31 (approaching No. 2 tomorrow!) was to count down the Top 20 TV Shows of 2009. At a certain point, listing has become as central to my December routine as caffeinating and showering and more essential than shaving and watering my struggling tree. And since I also have been known to write about movies on this blog, it only seemed natural that I whip out a Best of the Decade list for movies as well. I started with 10, but that didn't work. I was leaving out too many. I got down to 20 comfortably, but I was still leaving out a few movies that I *really* wanted to mention. From there I pushed to 30 and, at the urging of a Twitter follower, went that extra step to 31, just for symmetry. I'm not going to do these as a one-per-day affair with entries approaching 2500 words as I get near the top. Been there, doing that. I'm breaking these out as three blog posts. Simple enough. Unlike TV, where my list is The *Best* 31 Shows Of The Decade Which Aren't "The Shield," I'm not playing this out as having any sort of Best of the Decade definitiveness. It's not quite a "favorites" list, because I've given some thought to craft and importance beyond just pure rewatchability. Mostly, I'm sticking my blog's name in from of the list so you know that these are probably the 31 movies I liked the most from the past decade. Secretly, do I think they're the best? Probably. But this isn't like my TV list, where if you disagree with my No. 1, I'm going to surreptitiously sneak over to your house and cut the cable lines, because you're not worthy of television service. If you aren't happy here? This is my list, but feel very free to share your opinions (Daniel Fienberg)

    Hitfix: Drew McWeeny's The 50 Best Films Of 2000 - 2009

    Favs/dislikes: 3:0. Okay... making a ten best list was fun, especially since I got to technically cram in 25 films. That was all for one year, 2009, which was a darn fine year of film overall, if not one for the record books. That list, though, was just a warm-up for the big list, in which we break down the 50 best films of the past ten years. Yes, calendar nerds. I know. In your reality, all decades refer to something starting a year that ends in a 1. But I am not talking about an astronomically-calculated decade. I'm talking about the period of ten years that started on January 1, 2000, and which will end in about eight days. That's the decade we're looking at, and that pretty much every sane person on the planet understands as a given in this conversation. There's a top ten, and I'm surprised how quickly it shook itself out. I feel pretty strongly about it, too. The others on the list were grouped and regrouped and regrouped, and finally I feel like the list represents a real x-ray of the decade, and what kept me engaged over the last ten years. Because let's face it... anyone who really loves movies could look at the last ten years of film on the surface and be stricken with a crippling despair. The studios are, more than ever, churning out garbage that defies description. The trend to remake the remakes of the remakes while also rebooting the sequel to the prequels to the reimagining of the homage is enough to make you wish celluloid had never been invented. You have to look deeper than that into the last ten years, and you have to consider just how many really remarkable films have come out, and from how many different countries and cultures, and then maybe it's easier to get your head around just how many good things we've been gifted with in the last decade. For most of that time, I was working and writing at Ain't It Cool News, and many of my writings about the decade are still archived there under my pen name "Moriarty." For the last year, though, I've been right here, slowly figuring out what to do with Motion/Captured and how to make it special for you guys. It feels like writing this list puts a big chapter of my professional life to bed, even as I work to make this next chapter great. I look forward to adding new features like video reviews and audio podcasts to the rotation in 2010, and expanding on the things you guys enjoy already like Film Nerd 2.0. The one thing I'll say before we start this list is that if you're going to get hung up on what's not on the list, you probably shouldn't read it. I've gotten e-mails and comments about how my 2009 list is wrong because "The Hurt Locker" isn't on it, and if I dare respond, then suddenly people get extra-touchy. Just because other critics like something or love something or give awards to something... that doesn't matter to me. Never has. Lists are personal. That's the point. I'm not about to tell you what the 50 best films of the last decade are in any empirical sense... all I can do is tell you what films resonated the most for me, and which films I'll personally return to the most. If there are films you feel strongly about, I'd love to hear why they're important TO YOU... but don't scream at me because they don't mean the same thing to me. That's not a conversation. Lists should only ever be considered a jumping-off point for a larger conversation about where we agree and where we don't, and if approached correctly, that can be huge fun. Let's keep that in mind, okay? (Drew McWeeny)

    Favs/dislikes: 1:0. For the past 11 years, weekly CTV film critic Jim Gordon has appeared on the 6 p.m. newscast to reveal his picks for the top 10 films of the year. But this year, Gordon decided instead to say farewell to the Aughts by listing his favourite 20 films of the decade. "It was difficult to keep the list to only 20 films," Gordon admitted. "Every year had it's memorable films, be they Hollywood, foreign, indie or documentary -- and many of those are on this list." Here, in chronological order............

    Favs/dislikes: 6:0. Listing them in any meaningful order would be impossible. But the criteria should certainly include longevity beyond the initial impact, achievement in making them and, above all, enjoyment and/or appreciation watching them. Except for my No 1, which has to be the Lord of the Rings, these films are in alphabetical order. (Graham Young)

    Bill Gibron's The 10 Best Films of the Decade (2000 - 2009)

    Favs/dislikes: 1:0. Bill Gibron is a writer and film critic for popmatters. He wrote the 10 best films of decade in the end of 2009. Here his about that description for the list: Talk about tough! Even if this wasn’t a full time job, taking up as much of one’s life as any career plus concept of entertainment could, trying to pick out ten titles from an equal number of years is almost impossible. It’s not like television, which tends to keep its beloved entities on the air long enough to make a memorable impact. It’s also not like music, which can play in the background of one’s life sometimes decades after release. No, movies demand attention. They require patience and perspective. They are the most unique of artforms because they come at you complete. You can love a particular band or album even with one or two clunkers among the set list. No TV show is ever going to be 100% funny/dramatic/thrilling/thought-provoking all the time. But film doesn’t dignify such flaws. Instead, it amplifies them, destroying brilliant direction, excellent acting, or superb storytelling along the way. Naturally, this creates a kind of cinematic standard, a benchmark by which we measure both the good and the bad. And yet, going back over the near 3500 entries for possible inclusion here (figure it out - that’s 350 per year, or almost one a day for the last decade…and yes, I did watch each and every one, be they theatrical or on DVD) is still a mammoth undertaking, one that gears itself noticeably toward the most recent viewing experiences. Indeed, a lot of lists out there currently offer pickings from 2007 - 2009 almost exclusively, making you wonder if these so called experts even saw anything prior to the second Bush Administration. Add in the almost infinite and exhaustive “honorable mentions” and you’ve got a pointless combination of limited perspective and bet hedging. Don’t worry - this list won’t be any better. As a matter of fact, one can probably pick it apart point-by-point and argue over the merits of each selection. Still, as a function of one person’s own individual likes and dislikes, as a Herculean attempt to take one’s passion and profession and summarize it in several hundred words or less, it’s the way things stand…today…at this moment…without too much internal kvetching. Could it all change tomorrow? Probably. Are some of these choices set in cement, almost inarguable in their inclusion? Yes. So grab your cinematic salt (you’ll need it to take most of what you’ll read next) and settle in for SE&L"s Top 10 Films of the Decade (2000 - 2009), starting with a very unusual selection in the final spot:

    Mundo De Cinema: The 10 Best Epic Movies Ever Made

    Favs/dislikes: 3:0. Filmes épicos, capazes de retratar as histórias de grandes heróis, estão sem dúvida entre os mais vistos na história do cinema. Quem não aprecia a história de uma personagem com um propósito muito concreto, uma missão capaz de salvar o seu povo e de o elevar a um patamar mais elevado, quase como se se tornasse imortal? É por falar em imortalidade que aproveitamos para abordar alguns filmes épicos que viverão para sempre na mente dos espectadores. A nossa lista é baseada num estudo feito aos clientes dos clubes de vídeo britânicos: cada pessoa devia eleger aqueles que lhe pareciam ser os melhores filmes épicos de todos os tempos. E Tudo o Vento Levou, de 1939, foi de longe o mais votado, tendo até ficado à frente de Titanic (1997) e Cleópatra (1963). Já se olharmos para aqueles que figuraram entre os piores épicos de sempre, foi Pearl Harbor, o filme com Ben Affleck sobre o ataque japonês que levou à entrada dos EUA na II Guerra Mundial, a receber a coroa. Entretanto, Elizabeth Taylor ganhou o melhor desempenho de uma atriz em filmes épicos, em Cleópatra, enquanto no masculino a escolha recaiu sobre Ben Kingsley, em Gandhi. Neste post, apresentamos o top 10 dos filmes épicos que fizeram história no mundo do cinema e que, através de batalhas gigantescas, grandes romances e tragédia, fazem passar
  24. The Harris Poll America's Favorite Movie's icon

    The Harris Poll America's Favorite Movie

    Favs/dislikes: 2:0. This Harris Poll was conducted online, in English, within the United States between November 12 and 17, 2014 among 2,276 adults (aged 18 and over). Figures for age, sex, race/ethnicity, education, region and household income were weighted where necessary to bring them into line with their actual proportions in the population. Propensity score weighting was also used to adjust for respondents' propensity to be online. All sample surveys and polls, whether or not they use probability sampling, are subject to multiple sources of error which are most often not possible to quantify or estimate, including sampling error, coverage error, error associated with nonresponse, error associated with question wording and response options, and post-survey weighting and adjustments. Therefore, The Harris Poll avoids the words "margin of error" as they are misleading. All that can be calculated are different possible sampling errors with different probabilities for pure, unweighted, random samples with 100% response rates. These are only theoretical because no published polls come close to this ideal. Respondents for this survey were selected from among those who have agreed to participate in Harris Poll surveys. The data have been weighted to reflect the composition of the adult population. Because the sample is based on those who agreed to participate in our panel, no estimates of theoretical sampling error can be calculated.

    The Online Film Community's Top 100 Films of All Time

    Favs/dislikes: 9:0. When AFI released their list of the Top 100 Movies of All Time, many people were up in arms over the selections. Over 50 members of the Online Film Journalist Community decided to join together and create a list of their own. A list that might better reflect the views of everyone else who didn’t agree with the AFI list. Sure, you can’t really compare AFI’s list with the Film Community’s Top 100 because we allowed the inclusion of foreign films.
