250 movies that are better than the Shawshank Redemption. - a list by whitethomas61 Brave New Worldview – 30 Science Fiction Films of the 21st Century - Row Three 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.

Below are over two dozen science fiction pictures that are worth your time. In the interest of talking about the films, it should be noted that *SPOILERS* are sprinkled through out the list.

Léon: The Professional (1994 Top 50 modern day low budget movies In this age of multi-million dollar blockbusters and eye-watering fees paid to some actors, you may forget we’re in an age of austerity. However, for the vast majority of the film industry, there is no huge vat of money, nor has there ever been. But this hasn’t stopped some of the finest films of recent years being made on a relative shoe-string, and in some cases, quite literally with a shoe-string. I reckon filmmaking thrives at the sharp end, and low budgets mean more creative ideas, and as a result, more engaging films. To prove this, here is a list of what I consider to be the finest 50 contemporary films made for under $10 million. There is a breathtaking array of recognisable genre pictures in here, too, with budgets rangin from $10 million down to as little as $7000. A few caveats before we start, though – contemporary is defined by being the last 15 years, so we’ve only chosen films made between 1997 and the present. 49. 47. 46. 45. 44. 43. 42. 41. 40. 39. 38. 37. 36. 35. 34.

Film features: The 20 Best Movie Drinking Games It's St Patrick's Day, and no doubt the pressure is on to head downtown for a few jars this evening (or, if you're a student, when doors open).

We've compiled some of the best movie drinking games from the collective wisdom of web-based boozers, as well as adding a few on our own. Sci-fi, gangster flicks, comedies and thrillers, classics and modern hits are all catered for. All of these will get you wasted while doing the public service of keeping you off the streets.
