Have Your Say: Which Film Would You Want To Forget... So You Could See It Again For The First Time?

Have Your Say: What Was The Best Zombie Film Of 2016?

Oscars, Schmoscars. While I understand that it must be nice to be nominated (and even nicer to win), films aren't a sports event, and the very nature of art often renders straight comparisons meaningless anyway. Beauty is in the eye...

Have Your Say: What's The Best Theatrically Released Documentary Ever?

Theatrically released documentaries are a strange sub-class of film. Sometimes they can get away with not having a narrative or (other) technical merits, when the subject is interesting enough to just point a camera at. Sometimes, they take a mundane...

Have Your Say: IMDb Is About To Delete Its Message Boards

This weekend I was looking up something in the Internet Movie Database over on www.IMDb.com, and got distracted by a question in a message board. Intrigued and amused I started reading it, and as these things go I got even...

Have Your Say: What Should The Next Lego Movie Be About?

This week we see the premiere of The Lego Batman Movie, and according to our James Marsh it's a whole load of fun. To be honest, that in itself ought not to be a surprise at this point. A few...

Have Your Say: What's The Best Movie Shoot-out Ever?

Yesterday, Ben Wheatley's Free Fire played at the International Film Festival Rotterdam, and a good time was had by all, especially when the director took the stage afterwards for a very funny Q&A session. I swear, I'd pay just to...

Have Your Say: About Original Non-original Movie Poster Art...

When I buy DVD's or Blu-rays, the cover art normally doesn't concern me all that much... unless we're talking about a super-special edition, in which case I'll see if it warrants a Pretty Packaging article. Newly commissioned covers can be...

Pretty Packaging: THE BLUES BROTHERS Gets A German Edition Worth Going To Jail For

Ard's Dozen Of Musings About 2016

Unlike my articles of 2014 and 2015, this year I actually had seen enough films to do a top-10 proper. So what happened? I flubbed it by mismanaging my time, and even missed the deadline for last week's splendid group...

Ben's 2016 in Cinema: Reflections and Favorites

In the year 2016, cinema almost killed me.

J Hurtado's 12 Favorite Indian Films of 2016

2016 was a great year at the movies. The world of cinema has provided a tremendous amount of joy for which we should feel grateful. While that could apply to the world at large, it especially applies to the cinema...
