We just finished an entire decade in film and I covered it all on this site. Of course this was going to happen.
It’s been a while without proper content on this site. Granted, the bits I did do over the past year-plus are all things that are going to be permanent resources on this site. I wrote less overall, but what’s there will stick around longer. And I’m happy with that. This year, though, this being the tenth year of this site’s existence and the end of a film decade… why not recap the decade?
What I did (I even started working on this last spring because I was so excited about it) was go through the entire past decade and gathered my favorite films in a bunch of different categories. So starting tomorrow, we’re going to introduce our first list. I still have the rest of the Release Calendar to get to, because the shortened Oscar season didn’t allow me to get past February on that. But I figured let’s introduce the feature now and slowly roll it out over the two weeks it’s gonna take us to clear those articles. Because once that’s done, it’s nothing but Top Tens of the Decade lists through the end of the summer. (more…)
The American Film Institute released their annual top ten movies list today.
Typically they go with obvious choices, and your old standards. And usually they end up being pretty close to what the Oscar nominations are. So, without much comment, here’s AFI’s Top Ten Movies of 2013:
12 Years a Slave
Inside Llewyn Davis
Saving Mr. Banks
The Wolf of Wall Street
It’s like we’ve seen these
everywhere else before, huh?
