The 10 Greatest LGBTQ Romances in the Movies

In all the stories that the world of film has to offer, it is surprising how little we see in the way of LGBTQ romances. Sure, there are the obvious examples, but what exactly makes a good love story that celebrates the non-heterosexual individuals out there?

Well, with the release of 20th Century Fox’s Love, Simon (which could be a future contender on this list) it is time to take a deeper look at the most beautiful, heart pounding, and memorable silver screen romantic tales that just happen to be more LOGO TV friendly than your typical offerings. These are 10 of the greatest LGBT cinematic romances!

Braven

Jason Momoa stars in Braven, a film with a dumb name and a whole lot of heart. Braven feels like an anomaly – it’s the type of action movie that was more prevalent in the late ’80s and early ’90s; the type of action movie that used to star Jean-Claude Van Damme. They don’t really make ’em like Braven anymore, and that makes this a film that has to be seen to be believed.

The 10 Best Episodes of ‘Breaking Bad’

breaking bad ozymandias

10 years ago tomorrow, a show with no discernible qualities of longevity aired on AMC, a network that was only a few months into its first tentpole series, Mad Men, and not yet an established ratings and awards player. Breaking Bad arrived without much fanfare; it was midseason, January, a dreary time of year for a show so propulsive and colorful. And though immediately critically acclaimed – Bryan Cranston won a Best Actor Emmy for the first season – it took years to crystalize as a full-blown hit. Now, 10 years later, Breaking Bad is one of the most beloved and valued series of all time, a behemoth that cleared the way for a slew of imitators, and redefined what Golden Age television looks and feels like.

To celebrate the show’s 10-year anniversary, we’re counting down the 10 best episodes it ever produced.

Today I return with the second installment, which takes a look at the best movies from the last 16 years of the festival as Park City became not only the mecca of American independent film but the launching pad for hundred million dollar award contenders.

The Best Movies Of Sundance Film Festival History

The Sundance Film Festival isn’t just a film festival, but a look into the future of cinema. As we travel to Park City Utah this year, I thought it would be nice to take a look back at the last 30 years of the festival. Today I begin part one of my two-day, two-part look at the best movies of Sundance Film Festival history. In part one I will focus on the first 15 years of the festival* as the small independent film festival grew into the launching pad for new filmmakers and ground zero for the independent movie boom of the 1990’s.

Peter Sciretta’s Top 10 Movies of 2017

peter top 10 movies

These are not the 10 best films released in 2017 – this list is of my 10 favorites. I saw close to 150 films last year, so narrowing down my top 7% is not easy. There are a lot of great films that didn’t make the cut, and I could list off a paragraph of films as honorable mentions, but I feel like that would be of disservice to this list.

No, you won’t agree with my choices. Some of the films listed here don’t appear on top 10 lists from other critics or even other /Film writers. I haven’t seen my number one film on any lists at all. But that’s the point, right? My list is my subjective opinion! There would be no reason to read this list if it was just a reflection of your opinion. I hope that this list will make you reconsider some of these movies and I hope that it will make you seek out the films you haven’t seen.

Christopher Stipp’s Top 10 Trailers of 2017

Green Band Trailer

Trailers are an under-appreciated art form insofar that many times they’re seen as vehicles for showing footage, explaining films away, or showing their hand about what moviegoers can expect. Foreign, domestic, independent, big budget: What better way to hone your skills as a thoughtful moviegoer than by deconstructing these little pieces of advertising? This week, let’s rank the best best trailers of 2017.

Steven Soderbergh's 2017 List

At the beginning of every year, director Steven Soderbergh releases a list of everything he watched and read the previous year. As far as lists go, Soderbergh’s are always fascinating, particularly because he tends to rewatch specific titles over and over again. His new list for 2017 is here, and reveals that so far he’s watched Ocean’s 8, the reboot of his Ocean’s 11 franchise, nine times already. Check out Steven Soderbergh’s 2017 list below.

Ethan Anderton’s Top 10 Movies of 2017

Top 10 Movies of 2017

We’re finished with 2017, which means it’s time to take a look back and determine which movies stuck with us the most. For me, this meant holding onto some movies that I first saw back in January at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival. But it also meant letting go of a few movies that I fell in love with this summer as my entire list of the Top 10 Movies of 2017 took shape. Some were very difficult to push out of the final list while others were clearly never going to fall away. It just goes to show you that this was a phenomenal year for movies.

Without further ado, here’s my Top 10 Movies of 2017, but beware of some spoilers if you haven’t seen them.
