It’s always hard to choose a top 10 list at the end of a year. There are so many factors that go into picking a list that at some points it would just be easier to throw darts. 2016 had so many great movies, and not all of them may have been on people’s radar.
2016 looked to be a sad year for film, but then something happened around October. The new releases just kept getting better and better. It turned out to be one of my favorite film years in recent memory.
It’s that time for me once again to vomit forth my Favorites Films of the Year. This is my opinion, but I think all of the below films are worth your time. Oh, there are others for sure, but the tradition of a top 10 prevents me from including them. Tough choices had to be made but I went with my gut.
The phrase “Best Films” doesn’t mean much coming from anyone. We all have our opinions and tastes and that’s what makes each critic unique. So below you will find my favorite films of 2014. The Top 10[…]
Today is a day where I just feel like making a list of all the things I love in movies. Little moments that make me want to stand up and cheer, or pump my fist[…]
10) Dallas Buyers’ Club I would have never guessed that I would say I genuinely enjoyed any film with Matthew McConaughey, much less two in one year (technically, three). Dallas Buyers’ Club was extraordinary for[…]
2013 was a good year for film. Especially American film. Any year that I can reorder the entire list and still feel happy about it is a good one. That being said, the order below[…]
A lot has been said about how Roger Ebert was an important person in the world of film criticism, and how he gave insightful commentary on topics far and wide. So instead of writing a tribute I thought I would let his work speak for itself.
I’m going to try something different this year. Instead of a my usual list I’m just going to list twenty-one of my favorite films of the year. No ranking. No awards. These are just some[…]
Of course, no one has enough time to see every film made in 2011, and there were some big ones that I personally missed. So these lists should be more accurately titled “My Favorite and[…]
2010 is over! There are some big films that I missed, but at some point I just have to stop chasing them down and lock-in my best of the year. I don’t want my life[…]
Compiling a list and putting it in order was very difficult. Thanks to both The Lab Rat and Bootleg Willy for paving the way.
The beginning of this decade marks the time that I really started to become obsessed with film, so this list is very personal to me.
I haven’t written much because I have been busy watching films trying to get my Top 10 of the Year and Top 25 of the Decade lists ready. At some point, I just had to stop and lock it in. I can’t see every film, and I can’t obsess about the order forever.
