My Top 50 Favorite Mindfuck Movies I thought I could rank them, but that would be too difficult, so here they are in alphabetical order. 1. 21 Grams 2. Adjustment Bureau, The Good Horror Movies Every Fan Has To See If you ask people on the street for some suggestions of a great horror movie, odds are you'd get a wide range of answers. You’d get everything from the scariest slasher film to horror comedies and even b-rated horror movies that barely classify for the genre. Because we all have a different capacity for being scared and our own unique reasons for watching horror films, we of course have varying tolerances for gore and suspenseful movies. Storytelling is an art form and the best stories share a hero, his struggles, and the ultimate victory of the hero over the villain.
iTunes Movie Trailers iTunes Movie Trailers Poster ViewText View Previous Next Top 50 Dystopian Movies of All Time Massive dehumanization, totalitarian government, rampant disease, post-apocalyptic terrains, cyber-genetic technologies, societal chaos and widespread urban violence are some of the common themes in dystopian films which bravely examine the ominous shadow cast by future. A dystopia is a fictional society that is the antithesis or complete opposite of a utopia, an ideal world with a perfect social, political and technological infrastructure. A world without chaos, strife or hunger. A world where the individual potential and freedom is celebrated and brought to the forefront. In contrast, the dystopian world is undesirable with poverty and unequal domination by specific individuals over others.
Steven Soderbergh: State of Cinema First of all, is there a difference between cinema and movies? Yeah. If I were on Team America, I’d say “Fuck yeah!” [laughter] The simplest way that I can describe it is that a movie is something you see, and cinema is something that’s made. It has nothing to do with the captured medium, it doesn’t have anything to do with the where the screen is, if it’s in your bedroom, your iPad—it doesn’t even really have to be a movie: it could be a commercial, it could be something on YouTube. 50 Movies You Have to Watch Before You Die Movies are an important part of popular culture. You may view them as less refined than books, but the stories are essentially the same. As much an art form as painting, video games, music, and books, movies capture our imagination and show us perspectives we’d never see on our own. Life is short – don’t let it pass you by without seeing these movie classics: 50. The Iron Giant (1999)
The Ten Best Horror Movies You Haven’t Seen October means Halloween, and Halloween means horror, and horror? Well that means some damn good movies. I presume many of you are searching for a good horror flick to curl up with this month, and while I will advise you to first consult my 10 Best Horror Films of Decade list, I thought I’d compile a new one made up of films that aren’t quite as widely known. Yes, I love The Ring, The Orphanage and The Descent, but there are smaller, more niche movies that are deserving of your attention, and really, once you’ve been scared or grossed out once, it’s not quite the same if you watch the same film again. Here are some new titles that some of you may have seen, but I predict most of you will have not. You may think a few of them suck, and I’ll admit they’re not without their flaws, but if you’re looking for a few decent horror films, you could do a lot worse than these.
Stop Motion Film "Zero" Contemplates Value Of Life "Zero" is beautiful stop motion short film about a world where people are born into a numerical class system. Our hero is born with a zero on his chest and is therefore faced with constant prejudice and persecution. Husband and wife film-making team Christopher and Christine Keseloz have worked on their dark fairytale for two years. Off-kilter and a bit creepy, their creation is ultimately heartwarming. The film, which recalls the early work of Tim Burton, won "Best Short Film" at the Naples International Film Festival, and other awards at over 10 other festivals.
Existential & Psychological Movie Recommendations Film, as with many of the arts, often reflects many existential themes.

Quentin Tarantino Lists His Favorite Films Since 1992 Yup, we mentioned Quentin Tarantino last week, and we’re doing it again this week because Rosario has unearthed this nice clip. In six snappy minutes, Tarantino (director of Pulp Fiction, Reservoir Dog, Inglorious Basterds, etc) lists his favorites films made since 1992 — when he, himself, started making films.

movie questions While most of the films on the list are set in high schools or universities, the issues they address are relevant to teachers at all levels. Each movie has four or five questions. I anticipate that you would write equally for each movie, so don’t select a film because it has fewer questions than another one. Before you watch the movie, read through the questions carefully so you know what to look for. The questions do not ask you merely to recall details; they require critical thinking, creative and / or personal responses, and application to various aspects of education. Other titles will be added to the list as I am able to compile the viewing guides.
