10 Great Post-Apocalyptic Films That Are Worth Your Time

First of all, we decided to focus on films which deal with the survival of a greatly diminished population after an apocalyptic event and not to include movies which deal with more or less functional rebuilt societies after such an event. Most of those we would actually classify as dystopian films anyway and hence movies like Akira or Things to Come also haven’t been included. Secondly, we decided to take the term post-apocalyptic literally and not to include any films which deal exclusively with the lead up to an apocalyptic event or the event itself.

This explains the omission of for instance Children of Men, which otherwise would more than likely have been included. And then there are also some science fiction classics, which whilst strictly speaking are post-apocalyptic, also haven’t been included as their main focus wasn’t on the survival of few after a catastrophic event. 10. 9. 8.

Not every film can be the Citizen Kane of its day.

The 100 Best “B Movies” of All Time

For every high-budget “A movie” that commands significant promotion and funding from its studio, there are piles of B movies that scratch and claw their way into existence without the benefit of things like “a budget” or “a script” in some cases. To compare them with A movies in terms of resources and immersiveness isn’t a fair proposition.

Instead, discerning film fans are able to simply appreciate them for what they are. But what does “best” mean when we’re talking about films often famous for their shoddy construction? It certainly doesn’t mean “best-made.” Whenever possible, I tried to keep the list to more obscure titles. 100.

Club, it was the decade when we were coming of age as cinephiles and writers, and we remember it with considerable affection. Those ’70s warhorses like Martin Scorsese and Robert Altman posted some of the strongest work of their careers, and an exciting new generation of filmmakers—Quentin Tarantino, Joel and Ethan Coen, Wong Kar-Wai, Olivier Assayas, David Fincher, and Wes Anderson among them—were staking out territory of their own. Connecting… 25 Great Psychological Thrillers That Are Worth Your Time.

25 Great Psychological Thrillers That Are Worth Your Time

Instead of displaying legions of gore and violence, their main objective is to play with your mind. To leave it up to you to construct the tension of what you have just witnessed. As the great perplexer David Lynch once said: “when you are spoon-fed a film, more people instantly know what it is. I love things that leave room to dream and are open to various interpretations. 15 Visually Striking Films With Amazing Color Palettes. A film’s aesthetic and visual palette can largely determine its mood, feel and even themes.

15 Visually Striking Films With Amazing Color Palettes

Production, costume and art design all massively contribute to a film’s look, as well as the cinematography and directorial choices. Some filmmakers use visual extravagance and excess for no real point, making their films feel emotionally vapid and pointlessly indulgent (Baz Luhrman and Tarsem Singh come to mind), but when a filmmaker can really utilize those colors and visual allure to bring out emotions, set a mood and give their work personality, it’s always a treat. That’s not to say all great movies have to be doused in bright colors, but sometimes the visual experience a film offers has just as much to do with its quality as the characters, story or dialog.

The better a film looks and the more exciting it is to the eye, the more memorable and stimulating the film is – as long as it has the other elements of a good movie to back up that atheistic. 15. 14. 12. 11. 50 greatest cult classic movies of all time. 20. 'Blade Runner' Hey, look, Harrison Ford!

The Best Movies of 2013: Richard Brody. The year 2013 has been an amazing one for movies, though maybe every year is an amazing year for movies if one is ready to be amazed by movies.

The Best Movies of 2013: Richard Brody

It’s also a particularly apt year to make a list of the best films. Making a list is not merely a numerical act but also a polemical one, and the best of this year’s films are polemical in their assertion of the singularity of cinema, as well as of the art form’s opposition to the disposable images of television. The 2013 crop comprises an unplanned, if not accidental, collective declaration of the essence of the cinema, an art of images and sounds that, at their best, don’t exist to tell a story or to tantalize the audience (though they may well do so) but, rather, to reflect a crisis in the life of the filmmaker and the state of the artist’s mind or, even, soul. The ever-increasing prominence of television is, in turn, sparking a renewed reflection on the part of filmmakers about what cinema is, and what it can be. The 52 Most Anticipated Movies of 2013. Just yesterday, a friend of mine posted a message to her unborn child on Facebook, saying that if the little bugger came a week before the due date and ruined her chance to see Star Trek Into Darkness, there would be consequences.

Or if you live in a small town, you're constantly frustrated that the movies critics are going crazy for never play anywhere near you, and take months to come out on DVD.

100 Greatest Films of the Last 30 Years - 1983 - 2013. Five Documentaries You NEED To Watch On Netflix As Of 11/13/13. Documentaries offer you something very few fictional films can. You walk away from them smarter than you were when you showed up. That is how documentaries work. They often find a single subject, and focus their energy on informing those who don’t seem to know enough about it.

Where The Hell Is Matt? - About Matt. Matt is a 37-year-old deadbeat from Westport, Connecticut who used to think that all he ever wanted to do in life was make and play videogames. He got lucky, landing a job as a game designer in Los Angeles at a young age, and figured he had everything pretty much figured out. At 23, he moved to Brisbane, Australia, where it's a pretty typical thing for people to take off and travel the planet for a while before settling down. He thought that sounded amazing, and was also starting to realize that maybe videogames weren't the only thing that mattered. So in early 2003, he quit his job to go wandering around Southeast Asia until the money ran out.

He made this site so he could keep his family and friends updated about where he was. A few months into his trip, he and his friend, Brad Welch, were taking pictures on the streets of Hanoi when Brad said "Hey, why don't you stand over there and do your stupid dance.
