/Film’s 25 Most Anticipated Movies of 2019

We are at the start of a new year and you know what that means: a whole new year of movies to anticipate. The /Film crew recently sat down, put our heads together, and compiled a list of our top 25 most anticipated movies of 2019. You can see the fruits of our labor below. And before you ask “But wait, why isn’t this movie on the list?”, please note that we recorded our deliberations as we formed this list as a podcast. So the answer you’re looking for is probably in that audio. Note: severa...

/Film’s Overall Top 15 Movies of 2018

Every January, the writers at /Film look back at the previous year and compile a best-of list, a ranking of the greatest movies they saw over the past 12 months. And every year, I then take those lists and create a group ranking that represents the entire site, a top 15 list that stands for all of our voices and tastes. The result is always a refreshing reminder that, hey, movies are diverse and they are good. These are the 15 best movies of 2018 according to /Film. First, a quick note on ho...

Peter Sciretta’s Top 15 Movies of 2018

2018 has come to a close and I have finally been willing to commit to a list of this year’s best movies. Unlike the rest of the /Film staff, I decided to post a top 15 instead of a top 10, and I’ll explain why. I don’t think this was a great year for movies, but it was a very good one. Many of the films in this list are on nearly equal footing. I recently went back and rated and ranked films through the last decade and a half, and that gives me some perspective. If you were to look at my rating...

Ben Pearson’s Top 10 Movies of 2018

2018 felt more like a warped decade than a normal 365 day span, but at least the movies that came out last year were pretty damn great. Over the next few days, Team /Film will be counting down our favorite films of the last twelve months. The fact that films like Free Solo, Destroyer, Paddington 2, Lizzie, and Black Panther ended up in my honorable mentions when they could form a respectable top 5 on their own speaks to the overall quality of the year at the movies. But enough preamble: let’s g...
