Top 10 Movie Lists

25 Must-See Movies in 2010

The New Year is here, which can only mean one thing: twelve more months of new movies! Sadly, while hundreds of movies will be released in 2010, most of them will end up being bland, disappointing or just plain bad. Which ones will amaze? Which ones will conquer? Which ones will  be at least worth […]

The 10 Most Disappointing Movies of 2009

Each year, there are good movies and there are bad movies. And then there are the movies that claw at your soul, that could and should have been good but just… aren’t. These movies often fall onto “most anticipated” lists and have plenty of healthy (or unhealthy) buzz surrounding them. Audiences are dying to see […]

2009 Holiday Buying Guide: DVDs and Blu-Rays

Looking to buy some DVDs or Blu-Rays this holiday season? Do you wrap them up and put them under the Christmas tree, or shove them in a stocking? I like to do both, because the more movies the better! With the holidays just around the corner, now’s the perfect time to start thinking about the […]

The Best and Worst Roland Emmerich Movies

Roland Emmerich. A God among men. This guy is single-handedly responsible for obliterating the world ten times over, and his magnum opus, the destruction film to end all destruction films, 2012, opens this Friday. In 2012, this creature of the universe hits humanity and the poor earth that he hates so much with just about […]

The 10 Best Movies of Summer 2009

Summer isn’t officially over quite yet, but the summer movie season (May to August) is, as evidenced by The Final Destination 3D winning its second weekend in a row with a paltry $12 million. This summer made more money for studios than any other summer in history, though such records hardly mean much when the […]

The Hot List: 10 Movies to See in September

Kids are back to school, parents are back to work (well, except for the unemployed ones) and Hollywood has decided to not release anything worthwhile… it must be September! Many of the major television shows are starting up, too, and football season is upon us – not to mention the end of the regular baseball […]

The 15 Best Television Shows Currently on TV

This title may be a bit misleading. In reality, this article is about the best television shows that I currently watch on TV. I don’t watch every TV show. I don’t watch The Closer or House or NCIS or 30 Rock, to name a few. Comedy is generally not my thing. I much prefer serialized […]

The Hot List: 10 Movies to See in August

It’s August. If you’re probably like me, you’re sweaty, hot and in desperate need of some time out of the sun. What’s better (other than going to the beach) than to sit back in an air-conditioned room and watch not one but ten good-to-great movies? Sure, most of the big blockbusters have already been released […]

The Most Underrated Sci-Fi Movies of the 21st Century

The 21st century officially started January 1, 2001. However, for the sake of simplicity, we’ll include the year 2000 in there, primarily because it contains a “2.”  Over the last nine years, there have been plenty of sci-fi films, ranging from full-out action to indie dramas. Many have gone on to great things, like this […]

The Best and Worst Star Trek Movies: The Ultimate Ranking

With J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek coming to theaters this Friday, it seemed as good of time as any to put into words the truth about the Star Trek series: the ultimate ranking of the movies. Here you go, and if you disagree, let me know how you’re wrong: Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan […]

8 Movies to See In April 2009

Wow. Does April suck or what. In preparation for the summer months to come, April sees a very small selection of films open wide – and very few of them will be worth your time of day. Here are the movies you should see in April 2009: Observe and Report From the writer and director […]

The Most Memorable Amusement Park Movies

On Friday, Adventureland arrives in theaters, uniting Bella and Edward for another adventure in vampire love. Oops, wrong movie! Adventureland does star Kristin Stewart, but in place of Robert Pattison, we have the slightly less heartthrob-esque Jesse Eisenberg, and in place of vampire love, there’s… corn dog love. Yes, even though the title is completely […]

The 15 Best Actresses of 2008

Time and time again, we hear that actresses have it much harder when it comes to finding good parts in Hollywood. It’s true, as year after year I usually have to scrounge to find truly stand-out actresses. This year, for whatever reason, it was not difficult at all. Funny enough, some big names like Penelope […]

23 Overlooked Movies of 2008

Every year, plenty of movies come and go with audiences ignoring them and/or critics bashing them. Many of these films deserve the fate bequeathed upon them, but there are others that leave the filmmakers scratching their heads or drinking away their sorrows in some lonely tavern only to wake up the next morning to find […]

The Worst Movies of 2008

I love a good movie as much as the next person. In fact, my favorite hobby hinges on the fact that there are good movies out there. But, as a self-proclaimed critic, the best movies for writing reviews are the bad ones. What can one say about Schindler’s List without going into a fluffy tirade […]
