The 20 Best Movie Posters of the Decade

Best Movie Posters of the Decade

(This article is part of our Best of the Decade series.)

While movie posters seem to get worse every year, there’s still artwork released every year to promote movies that blows us away. The best ones are illustrated, but sometimes Photoshop jobs can turn out pretty well, too. And now that we’ve reached the end of the decade, there’s no better time to look back at some of the best movie posters released over the years. Below, I’ve rounded up what I think are the 20 Best Movie Posters of the Decade. Read More »

Most Underrated Movies of the Decade

(This article is part of our Best of the Decade series.)

What makes a movie underrated? In a literal sense, a good movie with overwhelming poor reviews is underrated. But there’s more to it than that. There can be movies that are fairly well received, and yet, they feel unloved; ignored; overlooked. So when it came time to compile a list of the most underrated movies of the decade, I decided not to just focus on the titles I felt deserved better reviews, but also films that deserved more love; more attention. Movies that were viewed by wide audiences, and yet were misunderstood. As the 2010s end, it’s time to give these movies their due. They’re presented below alphabetically.

2018 Razzie nominations

Ugh, here we go. The “funny” Razzie Nominations have been announced, and as usual, they’re bad. Since 1981, the Golden Raspberry Awards have been leading the way in nominating movies they consider to be the worst of the worst Hollywood has to offer. These nominations are meant to be both tongue-in-cheek and “reward” bad films and bad performances, but often, they target movies that are misunderstood or simply bold. If anything, the nominations continually prove that the Razzies are kind of useless. The 2018 Razzie Nominations are below.

mother! Honest Trailer

One of the most divisive and infuriating movies of the year was undoubtedly mother!, the latest film from director Darren Aronofsky. For some reason, audiences expected the filmmaker behind Requiem for a Dream, The Fountain, Black Swan and Noah to make a straightforward horror thriller starring one of the biggest stars in the world. But that’s not what mother! is at all.

As part of their viewer’s choice kick-off to 2018, the folks at Honest Trailers sink their teeth into the movie that is strange, suspenseful, confusing, and gruesome. You really should see the movie for yourself, and then come back and watch the mother! Honest Trailer. Read More »

The 16 Most Disturbing Movie Moments of 2017

most disturbing movie moments

Those following my work here on /Film know that I watch a lot of horror movies, from psychological puzzlers to bone-snapping slashers. It’s not all gore, guts and viscera, but one can guesstimate the ceaseless quantity of “disturbing” moments these eyes witness year after year. It could be a scene that triggers an immediate gag reflex, or recharges my nightmare fuel, or hits upon existential devastation with unearthly intent. I wasn’t always prone to stomaching such content – as I once opened up about while discussing my personal connection to the Child’s Play franchise – but now? Well, I’m choosing to relive the year’s most vile challenges on my own accord. Doesn’t that say enough?

What you’re about to read is a list of on-screen sequences that could break a number of viewers. My picks don’t necessarily have to be genre specific, although horror does end up harvesting the largest, freshest crop to choose from year after year. These are the clips that had me clenching down tightly on theater armrests or blocking my eyes with folded hands, as if directors were competing to see who could push me past the brink of no return. Looks like they’ll have to try harder in 2018 (please for the love of sanity, don’t).

The 20 Best Movie Posters of 2017

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 »
