    Happy Friday The 13th! The Truth Behind 10 Freaky Movie Myths

    Friggatriskaidekaphobes unite! We’re hardly the superstitious types around these parts, but with today being the notoriously unlucky/cursed/bedeviled Friday the 13th, we thought we’d counter-program from all our festival and award season coverage, and take a moment to take a not-very serious look at...

    Oscars: What Films Are Looking Good Coming Out Of Venice, Telluride & TIFF?

    With Venice and Telluride in the rear-view mirror, and TIFF starting to wind down (we've still coverage to come, but very few films remain that haven't been screened to press), it feels like the perfect time to kick off, for real, our annual awards coverage. There's a part of you that groans, and th...

    The 10 Greatest Football Movies Of All Time

    It’s said that among American sports, baseball is the official national pastime, but let's face it, pigskin is truly the sport that commands the country's attention. Because of this probably over-simplistic dichotomy, football yields the toughest, most unique films, but also some of the most downbea...

    In Honor Of 'Shock Corridor''s 50th Anniversary: 10 Lunatic Asylum Films

    A far-off scream turns into a cackle of deranged laughter. Hands reach out through steel bars. Straitjacketed crazies cower in padded cells; lights flicker on and off down endless maze-like corridors; groans and whispers echo through the shadows—is there anywhere that exerts a stronger pull over the...

    In Honor Of 'Riddick:' 10 Of The Most Unnecessary Sequels Ever

    If popcorn cinema in 2013 has been defined by one thing, it's been "Sharknado." But if cinema in 2013 has been defined by two things, it's "Sharknado" and... a glut of unnecessary and unwanted sequels. Think about it: "A Good Day to Die Hard," "G.I. Joe: Retaliation," "RED 2," "Percy Jackson and the...

    10 Films To See In September

    We’ve entered September, the point where the films aren’t bombastic enough for summer (but not outright crap reserved for August), and don’t have the longevity or clout to be remembered come Oscar time. Ten movies made the cut, along with a swath of honorable mentions, so September might be a good t...

    The Playlist's 15 Most Anticipated Films Of The 2013 Toronto International Film Festival

    While there might be some overlap with Venice and a little stolen thunder (at least for hardcore cinephiles) thanks to Telluride, that doesn’t make the TIFF lineup this year any less spectacular. In fact this year's slate — that runs as deep as it does long — works more than ever to make those other...

    The 10 Best Movies Of Summer 2013

    Summer 2013 is over, and so ends another season of loud, dumb, propulsive blockbusters and noisemakers. Lost within the rubble of explosions, posing, next-day blockbuster think pieces and box office discussions, there was also no shortage of options for audiences who didn’t want to turn their brains...

    20 Great Debut Films From Female Directors

    One of the less reported stories of this August’s film schedule is that the month not only saw three films released that were directed by women, but they were in fact three feature debuts — Lake Bell’s “In A World” opened to a rapturous reception (including ours) on the 9th, Jerusha Hess’ “Austenlan...
