One of the greatest features of any film is its display of acting. And over the hundred years of movies, there have been so many great performances. Well, I’m the idiot who decided to publish an opinionated list on the internet of what I think are the ten best. As a reminder, I haven’t seen every movie ever made, because of course I fucking haven’t.

Here are some honorable mentions:

Dylan Baker in Happiness (1998), Elizabeth Taylor in Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? (1966), Shirley Maclaine in Terms of Endearment (1983), Joel Grey in Cabaret (1972), Susanne Lothar in Funny…

Whether single or alone, you may find yourself in need of some heartwarming fun for Valentine’s Day, here are 25 romantic movies and where they’re available to stream.

25. Chasing Amy (1997) dir. Kevin Smith

Chasing Amy tells the story of two comic book artists (Ben Affleck and Jason Lee) the former of which falls for a fellow artist (Joey Lauren Adams), but has his hopes crushed when he learns she is a lesbian. This film is very witty and tackles sexuality in an interesting way, although its 90’s politics are a bit outdated, it is still very fun to…

One critic describes Roy Andersson’s You, the Living (2007) as “Ingmar Bergman meets Monty Python.” And I have to admit, I couldn’t have put it any better.

Roy Andersson’s “the Living Trilogy” spans three films and over a decade of filmmaking. The three films, Songs From the Second Floor (2000), You, the Living (2007), and A Pigeon Sat on a Branch Reflecting on Existence (2014), are made up of hundreds of vignettes, each examining an aspect of human life.

Throughout the Trilogy, the characters, placed in artificial scenery, portray brief aspects of life, asking questions, but not necessarily providing answers.

I keep coming back to the 1979 film All That Jazz trying to write effectively about how I feel about this film, but each and every time I attempt to write about it, I can never convey how I feel, so here I am, trying again.

The story of Bob Fosse’s existential masterpiece of sight and sound, the Palme D’Or and multiple Oscar winner is a fairly simple one. …

Now, I am of course a Gen Z teenager in the midst of a global pandemic, so I have found myself with copious amounts of time. So, of course, I’ve spent it on various social media platforms like Letterboxd, Discord, Instagram, and the dreaded TikTok.

Now, something I’ve recently begun doing is watching bad movies on Discord with some friends, and I’ve made a connection to the now almost by-gone trend of Midnight Movies. Midnight Movies were B-Grade and low budget, often horror, films that were aired on late hours on TV Stations. …

In a career full of magnificent work from beginning to end, starting with 12 Angry Men (1957) and ending with Before the Devil Knows Your Dead (2007), it’s hard to pick out the best film among Sidney Lumet’s career, which is filled to the brim with masterpieces. However, one film in particular I find stands out, maybe not as his best, but as his most entertaining.

In 1976, audiences were promised a “perfectly outrageous motion picture” with Network (1976), and for the time, the film was outlandish in it’s nature and humor. …

Trying to list the 10 greatest films of all time is ambitious, because it is impossible. As much as people like to argue about it, all art is subjective, and film at its core is an art form. Because art is subjective, creating a definitive greatest films list is literally impossible. So, because it’s impossible, why am I making this list? Why did I title it the way I did?

Well, to trick you, essentially. If this list had said “some random guy’s favorite films of all time”, would you have clicked? Absolutely not, because why would you care? …
