15 Must-See Movies About College, Ranked

College is a time to let loose, unfettered by the restraints that make high school such a prison. As a result, movies that revolve around the college experience have a tendency to embrace a wild atmosphere. Despite the general concept of university as a place to get an education, the focus in college movies tends to be on partying first, studying later. That's the stereotype of a college film, anyway: toga parties and sororities and hazing as far as the eye can see. But the reality (much like th...

Home Remodeling: One Potential Solution to Aging Housing Issues

While new construction is critical in addressing the inventory challenges, experts say that may only partially fix the persisting housing shortage in the United States. “Over time, aging housing is also likely to increase the rate at which homes deteriorate to the point of functional obsolescence—a factor that would further increase the need to build new housing to replace them,” says David Bank, senior vice president of Rosen Consulting Group (RCG). RCG co-authored a June report, “Housing Is Cr...

The 20 Best Kids Movies Of All Time

There's a common misconception that children's cinema, like children's television and children's literature, doesn't have to be good. Sure, kids may not be the most discerning consumers of media -- just ask any parent who has been forced to watch "Caillou" ad nauseum. But although they don't have as much experience as moviegoers, and they might not necessarily be able to articulate why a film is good or bad, children certainly know when they see something that provokes an emotional response. And...

The Last Duel Review: Prestige Period Filmmaking, Stunning Swordfights, And Piercing Performances [Venice 2021]

Prestige period filmmaking rarely sizzles like "The Last Duel."

All is as it should be here: stunning swordfights, dazzling duels, nimble narrativization, and psychologically piercing performances from the trio of leads.The film's accomplishments teeter precariously on the edge of sensitive gender politics given the subject matter.

The 15 Best Debut Films From Directors

A great first film can jumpstart a filmmaker's career and show the world what makes them unique. For example, the conversational dialogue, '70s soundtrack, and nonlinear narrative of Quentin Tarantino's first film "Reservoir Dogs" established tropes that the director still relies on today.Not every great director starts out strong, though. Although he's one of the greatest filmmakers working today, David Fincher's career nearly imploded after his disastrous debut, "Alien 3." Similarly, some dire...

Sian Heder’s first feature film, “Tallulah,” a quirky indie 2016 film about truth and lies, compassion and responsibility and creating your own family.
