All the Marvel Big Bads, Ranked By Badness

Black Panther Trailer

This past weekend saw the release of Marvel’s Black Panther and the debut of Michael B. Jordan’s striking new villain. So you know what that means: it’s time to update our Marvel villain ranking.

If you’re still reading, there are two things to keep in mind regarding this particularly ranking of Marvel’s bad guys. One, I’m judging them all based on Personality and Plan Points. How magnetic are they? How stupid is their plan for world domination (or whatever else they’re seeking)?

Two, Thanos isn’t on it because he doesn’t count. He’s not a villain; he’s a Postmates customer with the munchies. I’m sure we’re all looking forward to Infinity War, when he can legitimately join this list.

The Best Superhero Movies You Can Stream Right Now

Movies Coming to Netflix

There’s never been anything quite like Black Panther before. The latest Marvel movie is one of the first major comic book adaptations with a black lead, and it’s already poised to be one of the franchise’s most successful entries, having sold more advance tickets than any other film in Marvel history. And as Candice Frederick put so eloquently in a piece for /Film, Black Panther is “specifically a black movie that celebrates the strength and beauty of black womanhood in an era in which both get tossed aside.” It may be one-of-a-kind for now, but it will surely usher in a new wave of superhero films that celebrate other races and cultures, and ones that emphasize the power and strength of women.

So yes, Black Panther is a singular film, one that comes at an interesting time in the surge of high-grossing – and occasionally prestigious – superhero flicks. If you’re looking to wade through the waters of what came before, there are a surprising number of excellent-quality superhero flicks currently available on major streaming services. Here are some you can mull over while you wait for your Black Panther screening this weekend.

Best Movie Posters of 2017

We’re close to the end of 2017, and as we rush to catch up on some of the awards season contenders in order to finalize our lists of the Top 10 Movies of 2017 (coming next week), it’s time to take a look back at the year in cinema.

Before we ever see a trailer for a movie, we’ll often see a teaser poster that tries to set the stage for what’s to come on the big screen. A majority of official movie posters from studios are boring, familiar and don’t do much to get people excited. But every year, there are at least a couple dozen movie posters that deserve recognition. So without further adieu, here are the 20 Best Movie Posters of 2017. Read More »

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 Clip

Hollywood and the music industry have occasionally crossed paths throughout the years — a pop star sings on a romantic-comedy soundtrack, a musician takes a dip in the acting pool — but in the era of needle drops and “Hans Zimmer is a rock god” takes, these intersections will only become more frequent.

Now that the Grammy Award nominations are out, Hollywood has scored big, raking in several nods for prolific blockbusters like Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (best compilation soundtrack) and La La Land (best score soundtrack for visual media), as well a spoken word album nomination for the late and great Carrie Fisher. And of course we can’t go a year without Mr. Rock God himself, Zimmer, scoring two nominations for both Dunkirk and Hidden Figures.

Read on to see more of the Hollywood Grammy nominations.

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 and Thor Ragnarok Awards

We’re heading into the heart of awards season, that time of the year when studios will be releasing the movies that they hope will be nominated for plenty of awards in the coming months. Some will begin with a limited release before rolling out wide in the future, while others have already begun their limited release and are rolling out to more cities in the coming weeks. But there are some movies that were already released earlier this year and it’s time for studios to remind voters about in order to be considered for nominations.

Looking to compete against some of the more prestigious pictures that usually end up in the awards conversation, Disney and Marvel Studios are making a push for both Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and Thor: Ragnarok awards nominations, and it’s not just in the technical categories like visual effects and make-up.
