The best movies evoke tears, laughter, terror, reminiscence, and/or mystery in a truly personal way. Anything less (AKA, around 98% of all movies) serves no purpose other than to shove mindless, forgettable fodder in our face and line Hollywood’s pockets (Be afraid Michael Bay, be VERY afraid). This is that other , sacred 2%—the Holy Grail of cinema. Note : “Memorable Moments” may contain spoilers. 100. Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl (2003)
We’re all in that humanistic mode of evaluating our lives – coming up on the end of the year and the last time a zero will be the third digit on our calendars. We’re all (from Variety to Cat Fancy ) also waxing expert on what films were the best of the best of the best of the past ten years. Which is why there is an unnavigable sea of opinion polluting the internet right now.
Great acting, excellent directing and interesting subject matters all feature in our list of 15 well executed short films. Apricot – A chance encounter between a mysterious man and a beautiful woman soon becomes deeply personal. Sebastian’s Voodoo – A voodoo doll must find the courage to save his friends from being pinned to death. Foolishly Seeking True Love – Handsome and Belle just might fall in love, if fate doesn’t get in the way first.
A wise man once said, “French films are… too French.” American audiences often have preconceived notions about foreign films… that they’re boring, nonsensical, and hoity-toity(a technical term, you can google it), but French films in particular may come across as more pretentious than a lifetime subscription to McSweeney’s Quarterly Concern. So how do we at Film School Rejects combat this misguided attitude? First, we acknowledge that for the most part it’s true. It is. Second, we concentrate on finding the exceptions to the rule, the films that break that smoky French mold and just appeal to fans of good movies.

What's the saddest movie of all time? Although this may seem like a question that's open for debate, there is actually a scientific answer. According to Smithsonian.com , a scientific study from the University of California at Berkeley has determined that the saddest movie of all time is "The Champ."
We are leaving Kubrick behind and fast approaching Hyams. If you get that reference, go grab yourself a cookie. It is time for us to reflect back on the decade that was. On January 1st, 2000, Disney released FANTASIA 2000. On Wednesday, December 30th, 2009, THE WHITE RIBBON is set to bow.
A decade into the 21st Century and we have arrived at the future. The promise of Tomorrow. But instead we have looming energy crises, endless middle east conflict and more disappointing, we have no flying cars, Heck, for all the bright and clean future promised in 2001: A Space Odyssey, none of the real companies used as brands in the film even exist anymore. Even moving from the late 1960s to the mid 1980s, nobody makes DeLoreans (although they occasionally sell on Ebay), but cloning and tablet computing (as promised by Star Trek: The Next Generation) have more or less come to pass in this century. It is not the gizmos or the distopian aesthetics, that have brought Science Fiction into the new millennium, but the questions it asks of people or society in a future time or place and how they reflect on our own times. There have been a surprising number of excellent science fiction films to come about in the past decade that do this and do this well.
