    The 20 Best Movies About The Nature of Truth

    Favs/dislikes: 1:0. The idea of toying with truth in a work of fiction is not new. For example, dramatic irony dates back to Sophocles’ Oedipus Rex. And of course, Shakespeare popularized the concept of dramatic irony even further with works like Romeo and Juliet, and Othello. In a film, it’s easy to take what we are shown at face value. However, some of the most inventive films share traits with the great literature of the past. With the right filmmakers, truth is not something to just spoon-feed an audience. It’s something to play with; manipulating truth in a film can transcend the quality of the final product. It can make a difference between an average film and a really great one. This can also be considered a cheap gimmick, but it almost always benefits a movie. This list will showcase 10 great times filmmakers decided to experiment with the theme of truth. http://www.tasteofcinema.com/2018/the-10-best-movies-about-the-nature-of-truth/ http://www.tasteofcinema.com/2019/the-10-best-films-about-the-nature-of-truth/

    The 30 Best Movies About Addiction

    Favs/dislikes: 1:0. Is there any such thing as too much of a good thing? Yes. But that doesn’t stop most people and that’s fine enough. Everyone has some sort of compulsive behavior that makes them feel good, but may have adverse consequences in the future. However, when are normal things like over-spending or overeating considered being a sort of disease? – When your whole life falls apart because of it. When it gets in the way of daily functioning by interrupting or ruining things like work, school, relationships, friendships, and health. Most people assume that the only things you can get addicted to are drugs or alcohol which are intrinsically rewarding and therefore reinforce the behavior. But there are way more addictions and many adaptations of how addiction is portrayed in cinema. Whether it is the beginning of addiction or rehabilitation from it, or even how there is a whole economy based on addicts, there’s a movie of it.

    The 50 Best Political Movies Ever

    Favs/dislikes: 1:0. A nation divided. A war of ideals. It sounds a lot like reality and it sounds a lot like a movie. Indeed, the history of cinema is fertile with motion pictures with political storylines and lofty social ambitions. Ever since we discovered that the moving image has a distinct power over the masses, artists and governments have been using films to convey their message… for better and often for worse. Compiling a list of the best political movies in history is a daunting task. We had to allow for films that espouse ideas and ideals that don’t necessarily match our own. We had to consider a film’s quality as a political document and/or statement as a separate entity from its overall quality (the so-called “best movie ever made” only ranks at #49 on this list for that very reason). And we had to cast a wide net, so this Big List was voted upon and written by a half dozen film critics: Crave‘s William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold, The Wrap‘s Alonso Duralde, Linoleum Knife‘s Dave White, Blumhouse‘s Alyse Wax and Collider‘s Brian Formo. They each nominated 50 films, ranked from #1-50, and we tabulated those votes to come up with the following Top 50 Best Political Movies Ever. (Stick around at the end, when we’ll reveal our 50 runners-up as well.)

    The 51 All-Time Greatest Acting Performances....That Oscar Ignored

    Favs/dislikes: 1:0. Entertainment Weekly dug into the scores of great performances that have been overlooked by Oscar over the past 87 years. Some are so iconic that they had to triple-check the history books to make sure that Oscar had been so blind. (Really? Ingrid Bergman wasn’t nominated for Casablanca?) They could’ve made a list of 250—but from that list, they culled it down to 51 and ranked them, counting down to the single greatest acting performance that failed to grab Oscar’s attention. Note: The list makers place Julie Delpy and Ethan Hawke together in Before Midnight as the 51/50 greatest performances. Additionally, they place John Cazale at 14 and Diane Keaton at 41, both for their work in The Godfather: Part II. The list, therefore, comprises 49 different films.

  7. The A.V. Club's 50 most important American independent movies's icon

    The A.V. Club's 50 most important American independent movies

    Favs/dislikes: 1:0. What makes an independent film? The question has never had a straightforward answer, and the cultural criteria that define an indie has changed over the decades. But by and large, it has always been something that couldn’t have been made within the Hollywood system. In our attempt to assemble a list of the most important American indies, we have included works by mavericks, film school grads, and true outsiders; productions with multimillion-dollar budgets and labors of love financed through part-time jobs; movies that played the arthouse, the grindhouse, or barely anywhere at all. Some were massive box office hits, while others languished in obscurity for decades. Not all of our selections would rank among the best American independent movies ever made. Instead, the films on this list are the ones that broke new ground, created genres, or first introduced important artistic voices and subjects into American film.
  8. The Arts & Faith Top 25 Films on Waking Up's icon

    The Arts & Faith Top 25 Films on Waking Up

    Favs/dislikes: 1:0. We need stories about protagonists who learn how to wake up and to be conscious of the deeper realities behind mere default settings, unquestioned assumptions, and the spiritual sedative of focusing on self. Produced by the Arts & Faith online community, this list spans 65 years of cinema, from 1952’s Ikiru to 2016’s Arrival. The Top 25 Films on Waking Up is sponsored by Image, a literary and arts quarterly founded in 1989 to demonstrate the vitality and diversity of well-made art and writing that engage seriously with the historic faiths of the West in our time. Now one of the leading literary magazines published in the English language, it is read all over the world—and it forms the nexus of a warm and lively community.

    The Different Types of External Conflict & 10 Great External Conflict Examples

    Favs/dislikes: 1:0. External conflict is an essential part of screenwriting in that it’s essential in driving any plot. It is different to internal conflict in that whilst internal conflict is within the characters, external is outside of the character. In this article we’ll seek to define what external conflict is as well as provide some brilliant external conflict examples. We’ll look at: What is External Conflict? What are the Different Types of External Conflict? Which are the Best Examples of External Conflict? Defining External Conflict External conflict is when characters are faced with forces outside themselves, beyond their control, which oppose their needs and wants. Internal and external conflict are not mutually exclusive, both are necessary in well written stories. External conflict is the basis of the entire plot, driving the narrative forward. Whilst internal conflict adds depths to characters and storylines. External conflict is essentially the outside forces that pressure the protagonist into action. Internal conflict will be the pressure a protagonist puts on themselves, something that external conflict can exacerbate, motivate or call into question. But external conflict is the pressure point unique to this story. A protagonist has a long life outside the point at time in which we are seeing them and. The external conflict is usually the reason why we are meeting them at this point in their life. This is unless of course the story encapsulates the protagonist‘s entire life, in which case conflict will be many and varied. External conflict is the antagonist force for a protagonist and it can take many forms… Types of External Conflict There are three primary forms of external conflict within screenwriting. Each is vital to understanding antagonists and obstacles. Nature vs Character – This is when the world is opposing the goals of the protagonists. This could be a natural disaster, a global pandemic or an evil creature of some kind. Character vs Character – This is the simplest form of conflict and involves the battle of the protagonist and antagonist, both of whom have opposing goals, needs and wants. Society vs Character – In this form of conflict, the protagonists are faced with a society that opposes them. Dystopian societies involve this form of conflict, where it seems that the protagonist is overwhelmed by societal oppression. These three forms of external conflict are the most common but not the only forms. There are other subcategories that can be extrapolated from each. These often include: Supernatural vs Character (a variant of Nature vs Character eg. Ghost Stories, Poltergeist) Technology vs Character (a variant of Society vs Character eg. 2001 Space Oddysey, Blade Runner). Animal vs Character (another variant of Nature vs Character mixed with Character vs Character eg. Moby Dick, Jaws). The aforementioned three are the primary forms of external conflict. However, you’ll see in our examples that from the three primary forms of external conflict, secondary ones will spring. Furthermore, types of external conflict are by no means mutually exclusive. To the contrary, they often spawn and feed each other. External conflict is rarely the only conflict in a film of course. In most films, the external conflict feeds into and creates internal conflict within the characters who have to deal with it. Internal and external conflict need each other to survive and it’s in this relationship that drama thrives. Let’s take a look at some examples…

    Favs/dislikes: 1:0. [b]Borrowed from MUBI user Royce Jr.[/b] "These films are the final 100 films in a poll that was run by PolarisDiB. The poll was a hurt and heal style game which continued until just 20 films were left. The final top 20 take up the top 20 slots in this list, whilst the next 80 films are the last 80 films to be eliminated with film 21 being the last film to be eliminated, film 22 being the penultimate film to be eliminated and so on. The game started with over 1200 titles, so getting in to the final 100 is a real achievement."

    The Muriels Hall of Fame

    Favs/dislikes: 1:0. From site: Back in December 2006, between episodes of the U.S. premiere of OUT 1, Steven Carlson and Paul Clark sketched out an idea for some movie awards. The intent was to assemble a ragtag band of scattered cinephiles in order to recognize noteworthy achievements from the previous year in cinema, unswayed by awards-season hype. Plus we just thought it would be fun. As for the name "The Muriel Awards," it was inspired by Paul's guinea pig, who is both temperamental and endlessly curious, two traits which are common to a lot of die-hard filmgoers. Of course, few of them are as cute (see below).
  14. The Telegraph: The Films That Defined The Noughties's icon

    The Telegraph: The Films That Defined The Noughties

    Favs/dislikes: 1:0. This decade has brought some extraordinary shifts in the way films are made, and the way we watch them. But it’s not always easy to pinpoint exactly when those changes began – or where they will end. Many of the best films on this list – long-gestating triumphs such as In the Mood for Love or Spirited Away – were in development in the Nineties; others, now in production, will only see the light of day in a few years time. More than that, some of the key trends of the past 10 years – the DVD boom, faster broadband, YouTube – mean that today’s film fans have been watching, legally or illegally, movies from a bygone age. A fragmented, pick’n’mix cinematic culture, represented on this list by highly referential films such as Kill Bill, Moulin Rouge! and Far from Heaven, is increasingly the norm, not the exception. Big studios have continued to focus on blockbusters and franchise-fare to boost their profits. This hasn’t always been bad – the Bourne and Lord of the Rings trilogies are terrific fun – but it’s striking that artistically successful, award-winning features such as There Will Be Blood and Milk have under-performed at the box office: how sombre they must seem to audiences weaned on Pirates of the Caribbean and Spider-Man. How CGI-depleted! How zombie-less! Documentaries – intimate (Être et Avoir), epic (the nine-hour West of the Tracks) and idiosyncratic (The Gleaners and I) – have flourished, in part because of cheap digital technology, but also because that genre is given increasingly short-shrift on television. Animation – from the reliable Pixar stable to the Israeli Waltz with Bashir – has moved mainstream. The independent sector has become more international with the rise of Mexican drama, Korean horror, Romanian social realism. The succès d’estime of Steve McQueen’s Hunger and Apichatpong Weerasethakul’s Tropical Malady bodes well for the future of art film. Cinema, claimed by many to be moribund at the end of the Nineties, is still hungry, furious and vital.
  15. The Top 10 Screenplays of All Time by CineFix, new version's icon

    The Top 10 Screenplays of All Time by CineFix, new version

    Favs/dislikes: 1:0. If you want to make a good movie, the first thing you have to do is WRITE a good movie. The case for the screenplay being the most important part of filmmaking isn’t the most difficult one to make. It sets the tone for character, action, theme and pace, which inform all the other most vital storytelling devices in cinema’s arsenal. It’s a strangely daunting task to pick 10 and one that, frankly, we’ve been trying to avoid, but today we’re testing our mettle! Here are our picks for the top 10 screenplays of all time. From the crackling back and forth of classic old hollywood fare like His Girl Friday to the hipster swagger of Juno and hyper-specific cadence of Quentin Tarantnio in Pulp Fiction, the most obvious thing to look at is dialogue. But screenplays are also filled with action description, from a boulder chasing Indiana Jones in Raiders of the Lost Ark, to the way the “camera” swoops out of Jack’s brain at the beginning of Fight Club. There’s world building to do, like the vastness of Lord of the Rings, there’s exposition to deliver, like Rian Johnson methodically reverse engineering a mystery in Knives Out, and there is tone to set, like the violent intensity of PT Anderson and There Will Be Blood. Screenplays have a lot to accomplish, and so do we! So enjoy the next twenty minutes or so!

You wind up with some of the most fascinating, challenging, and downright kick-ass pieces of cinematic gold ever created. The key to great horror/sci-fi is maintaining that balance between the horrific and the…well, science-fictiony elements, and we think that the 20 flicks included in this list represent the very best examples of just that. We hope you enjoy, and let’s keep the rowdiness to a minimum - people are trying to sleep around here!

    The Top 21 Movies of the 21st Century……So Far!

    Favs/dislikes: 1:0. It’s one thing to come up with a list of the best movies in any given year, but the best movies of a century that’s just in its 16th year? We Are Movie Geeks polled a group of 30 carefully-selected (and mostly St. Louis-based) movie critics, movie bloggers, movie academics, movie promoters, and just plain old movie fans and asked for a list, in order of preference, of their Top Ten Favorite Films so far this century. Somewhere among the endless superhero blockbusters, franchise reboots, and sequels, some really great movies have come out in the last 16 years. And some of them were indeed superhero blockbusters, franchise reboots, and sequels! The 21st century has another 84 years to go, and there’s no doubt that these choices will change as the years go by, but since it’s doubtful any of those polled will be around when the century ends (unless Stephen Tronicek – born in 1999 – makes it to 101), we might as well do this now. To come up with our top 21, a super-scientific algorithm was generated….just kidding! We simply scored each movie based on its rank in any given list. If a movie was #1 on any list, it received 10 points, #2 received 9 points, and so on (a movie ranked #10 received 1 point – get it?). Of course, all of these lists are highly subjective and some favorite titles will be omitted, so prepare to argue with the selections of these 30 film buffs.

    The Vulture's The 30 Best Superhero Movies Since Blade

    Favs/dislikes: 1:0. The 30 best superhero movies since Blade kicked off their modern renaissance. Criteria for what constitutes a superhero movie were as follows: It must (a) be about a do-gooder or group of do-gooders who have superhuman abilities or are more skilled at crime-fighting than any human possibly could be (Batman and the Punisher being examples of the latter); (b) be set primarily on Earth, which excludes sci-fi fantasias like Star Wars and Guardians of the Galaxy, as both are set in galaxies where superhuman abilities are commonplace; and (c) have been released theatrically. There’s also a certain amount of Potter Stewart–esque logic here: You know a superhero when you see one.

    Favs/dislikes: 1:0. Love – it’s a funny old game. Or at least it is in these films. Here's Time Out's definitive list of the 50 best romcoms. Like cargo pants and saying ‘as if!’ to people, romcoms were huge in the ’90s, but fell sadly out of fashion in the 2010s. Now, though, that drought looks to be over. Thanks in part to Netflix, we’re in the middle of a romcom revival, with films like ‘Always Be My Maybe’ and ‘Set It Up’ inspiring mainstream Hollywood to start making romantic comedies again. From Nora Ephron classics to Richard Curtis movies that are so-very-British (and so-very-funny), we’ve put together 50 of the most hilarious romantic comedies and bittersweet romances that’ll leave a lump in your throat and tears rolling down your cheeks.
