Thor Ragnarok Mondo Print

Today is Thanksgiving, when families all round the country gather to stuff their faces with delicious food and argue about politics. Then we follow that up with Black Friday, when we forget about all the things were were thankful for so we can run through the aisles of various retails outlets for discounted electronics, appliances and more. But if you’re not the kind of person to brave the massive crowds out in the real world, there’s plenty of good stuff for you to snag online as well.

The awesome folks at Mondo have a handful of great Black Friday deals which include new prints for Scott Pilgrim vs the World, Thor: Ragnarok, Ex Machina and the films of LAIKA, not to mention a deluxe edition of The Art of Mondo book.

2016 oscar snubs

In many cases, the 2016 Academy Awards played out as many pundits predicted. Leonardo DiCaprio finally took home an Oscar. Alejandro González Iñárritu won his second Best Director statuette in as many years. The Big Short and Spotlight snatched up the screenplay awards. Brie Larson and Alicia Vikander walked away with acting trophies. If you went to Vegas and put your money where the awards season pros told you to put it, you had a fairly solid night.

But the craziest and most contentious Oscars in years still had its fair share of snubs and surprises. Surefire winners stayed in their seats while dark horses took the stage. Small films came out of nowhere to win awards over gigantic competition. A genuinely bad song managed to win its category over a bunch of other mostly bad songs. The winner of Best Picture only won one other award. And through it all, Mad Max: Fury Road rode shiny and chrome, picking up more honors than any other film.

slashfilm top 15 of 2015 header

The /Film team has spent the first week of 2016 saying goodbye to 2015 in the best way possible – by assembling our personal top 10 films of the year lists. Each of these lists represents one writer’s specific viewpoint, celebrating the movies that matter the most to them. These lists are, by their very nature, deeply personal.

But what would a year-end list representing the entire site as a whole look like? Could we take these personal lists and merge them into one uber-list that reflects our combined tastes?

That’s what we set out to discover. Blood was spilled. Tears were shed. Numbers were crunched. But we did it. This is the official, mathematically proven /Film Top 15 Films of 2015.

2016 BAFTA nominations

For those who follow and obsess over the Hollywood awards season, the British Academy Film Awards are often a breath of fresh air. Or a surprising curveball. A bucket of water to face. Seeing how the film tastes across the Atlantic diverge and converge with American opinions is often fascinating. Plus, the BAFTAs set aside a few categories to focus exclusively on British films and filmmakers, which always allows for some very interesting, very surprising films to step into the spotlight.

And this year’s nominations pretty good! While many of the nominations align with the current Oscar buzz, there are just enough surprises to make this interesting. You can peruse the complete list of the 2016 BAFTA nominations below.

Jack Giroux’s Top 10 Movies of 2015

Ex Machina dance

It’s often the case that a year after writing a top 10, I’m sometimes filled with regret. “How did I forget to include that movie?” is a question that’s bound to arise every once in a while. Twelve months after writing one of these lists, you know which movies have genuinely stuck with you. Thankfully, most of of my choices from past “best” lists have over the years.

This year, I’m confident all of these films will not fade with time. 2015 was filled with movies I’ve already had the urge to revisit, and I was delighted to find they haven’t lost their power on repeat viewings. After the jump, help me count down my top 10 movies of 2015.

Emily Blunt in Sicario

There are years when the awards race feels all but locked in by early January, when even the most casual Oscar followers can rattle off a list of frontrunners and the ceremonies themselves promise few surprises. This is not one of those years. True, there are a few titles that you can safely bet on making it to the final cut, like Spotlight and The Revenant. But there are a great many films still on the bubble. Some of them got good news today, as the PGA announced their nominations for the 2016 awards, and others just saw their odds get a little bit longer. Read the full PGA Awards nominations 2016 list after the jump.  Read More »

Angie Han’s Top 10 Movies of 2015

Ex Machina

It doesn’t matter how many resolutions I make: the next New Year always arrives before I’m ready to close the book on the previous year’s movies. There are too many movies I still haven’t seen (maybe next year, Paddington), or movies that probably deserve a rewatch (sorry, Carol), or movies I’m still not quite sure how to process (yeah, I’m still mulling over The Hateful Eight). But we’ve gotta wrap up 2015 sometime, and the first week of 2016 seems as good a point as any to stop and look back.

As always, I’d like to stress that these are not the “best” films of the year. They’re simply my favorites — the films that made me just a little bit happier, a little bit smarter, a little bit better at being a person in this weird wide world. After the jump, join me in counting down my top 10 movies of 2015.  Read More »
