We’re only half way into this decade, but the Internet is already jumping the gun. Case in point, this video of the best films of the decade – so far. Taking the first five years of the decade – 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014 – editor Kevin B. Lee put together a 7 minute 30 second video culled together from the votes of over 300 responses on social media. What’s interesting is that he got definitely more artistic film suggestions than anything else, making for a fairly non-mainstream and lyrical video. And even if it’s only half the decade, it’s still pretty great. Check it out below. Read More »

If you follow movies, you’re certainly familiar with Family of the Year‘s “Hero.” Only there’s a good chance you just know it as “the Boyhood song.” It’s the wistful ballad that plays over all the trailers, and that got played again and again Sunday night as Boyhood was celebrated at the Golden Globes.
“Hero” wasn’t written for Boyhood, and in fact had already charted before Boyhood came along. But Family of the Year has decided to lean into the connection, issuing a new music video that’s all about Boyhood. Watch the Boyhood song music video after the jump. Read More »

Unsurprisingly, Taken 3 was the run away box office champion in its opening weekend, grossing almost $40 million.
