During New York Toy Fair this past weekend, the first trailer debuted for part one of Netflix’s Transformers: War for Cybertron Trilogy, entitled Siege, which takes us back to the intense planetary battle between the Autobots and Decepti...

The 50 Greatest Movie Moments of 2019

We don’t always remember entire movies – we remember the moments. We recall that one glorious shot. We think of that telling glance, that hilarious one-liner, that shocking action scene. Heck, we sometimes remember a great moment from a bad movie more often than an entire competent movie. And with another year in cinema behind us, it’s time to look back. We’re finally and officially closing the book on 2019 with our look at the most moving, most funny, most thrilling, and most baffling moments ...

2020 Oscar Snubs and Surprises: Who Landed the Unlikely Nods and Who Was Overlooked?

With typically only five nominees per category, someone is always bound to be left by the wayside when the Oscar nominations arrive. 2020 is no different. But with the snubs also come the surprises – the films, filmmakers, and actors who no one expected to land a nomination suddenly find themselves invited to the biggest awards ceremony Hollywood has to offer. We’ve combed through this morning’s nominations and have put together a list of the biggest snubs and surprises from the latest batch of...

/Film’s Top 15 Movies of 2019

Over the past week, we have published individual Top 10 Movies of 2019 lists for each member of the /Film staff. And behind the scenes, we’ve been crunching the numbers to determine a list that represents the site as whole, with all of our most treasured films from the past year featured. And while not every beloved film made our final Top 15 of 2019 list (The Lighthouse missed it by this much!), we feel that the movies below not only represent the site’s overall tastes, but also what a tremend...

Ethan Anderton’s Top 10 Movies of 2019

If anyone tells you 2019 wasn’t a good one for cinema, then they’re watching the wrong movies. With all the hell raging around the world, it’s harder than ever to give us a proper escape into the movies. In fact, some of the best movies of the year didn’t even bother with trying to ignore the problems we’ve been facing, and instead used them to inform some of the most riveting, compelling, powerful and even heartfelt movies of the year. Many of them are even among the best of the decade, in my ...

Golden Globes Golden Boy Tom Hanks Gave You the Legendary Reaction Face That Meme Dreams Are Made From

Tom Hanks is an Oscar-winning actor, a national treasure, devoted family man, noted nice guy, and, as of last night at the 2020 Golden Globes, the recipient of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s Cecil B. DeMille Award for Achievement in Film and the perfect reaction meme for most awkward situations. The meme-able moment came during the opening monologue from host Ricky Gervais. Hanks was sitting front and center with his wife, Rita Wilson, when Gervais launched into his opening remar...

Read All of /Film’s Best of the Decade Lists and Features

It’s the first day of a new year and a new decade, and what better way to usher in 2020 than with a look back at the past 10 years of movies, TV shows, and everything in between? The pop culture landscape has shifted tremendously in the years since 2010, and our favorite movies of the past decade reflect that. At /Film, we tried our best to capture the pop culture zeitgeist of the past 10 years in our Best of the Decade series, which we ran for the last two weeks of December. Here is a compete ...

The 10 Movies That Saved Us This Decade

(This article is part of our Best of the Decade series.) As 2019 nears finality, wrapping up decade-end lists across internet publications, I opt to close on a high note. Any other year I’d be dishing the “Most Disturbing Movie Moments” or “Best Kills” given my horror focus, but life’s about keeping things fresh. Ducking when your opponent thinks you’ll counter. This past decade has defined my life in ways never thought imaginable, and thoughtfully, movies have become an undeniable influence w...

The 25 Best Television Shows of the Decade

(This article is part of our Best of the Decade series.) Last week, the /Film team gathered for a surprisingly intense conversation about the best television shows of the past decade. The one rule: the show had to have premiered between 2010 and 2019 (sorry, Breaking Bad and Mad Men). When the smoke cleared, there were 25 shows remaining, along with five battered and bruised runners-up. Here are the staff’s favorite shows of the past 10 years.

Ethan Anderton’s Top 10 Movies of the Decade

(This article is part of our Best of the Decade series.) The 2010s will mark the decade when cinema as we know it started changing drastically. The movies themselves aren’t really changing, but the manner in which we get to see them is in the middle of a drastic overhaul. In some ways, it’s easier than ever to watch a movie. But along with that, it’s also gotten harder for movies to find their audience, let alone get made. Even so, the 2010s were full of movies that will stick with us for years...

Our 15 Favorite Movie Moments of the Decade

(This article is part of our Best of the Decade series.) The /Film team has been busy ranking the 100 best movies of the decade, but one thing became clear as we assembled our lists: there was something missing. Sure, those films were the best of the past ten years, but they didn’t account for many of the individual scenes that have truly stuck with us. Sometimes, a flawed movie or simply a very good movie can leave a lasting impression or feature a character or performance or sequence that lod...

AMC Theatres Plans to Improve Its A-List Program, Raises Prices for “Discount Tuesday”

Last summer, AMC Theatres introduced its AMC Stubs A-List subscription service for movie tickets. On a recent corporate earnings call, the company’s CEO laid out a plan to improve that service for its users, specifically highlighting how they’ll be opening it up to users too young to obtain a driver’s license. But it’s not all good news. The theater chain is also raising the prices of screenings that fall on its “discount Tuesday” from $5 up to $7 in some markets. Read about the new changes at ...

Everything We Learned About ‘The Mandalorian’ at the Star Wars Celebration Panel

Live-action Star Wars stories have always been on the big screen, with only animated tales getting a shot on television. Until now. The Mandalorian is the first live-action Star Wars TV series and Disney knows this is a big deal – it’s being positioned as the flagship series for the new Disney+ streaming service. Much like how CBS used a new Star Trek show to draw people into their new subscription service, Disney and Lucasfilm know that all it takes is one great show to get people hooked…and t...

‘Late Night’ Trailer: Mindy Kaling Tries to Save Emma Thompson’s Talk Show

Late Night was a huge hit at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, and Amazon snapped it up for a lot of money. Now, the first trailer has arrived to give you a look at Mindy Kaling‘s comedy. In Late Night, Kaling plays an aspiring comedy writer who lands a job writing for Katherine Newbury (Emma Thompson), the only female host in late night television. Katherine was once a comedy legend, but now her show has grown painfully stale. Can Kaling’s character turn things around? Watch the Late Night t...

The Best and Worst Moments of the 2019 Academy Awards

Another year, another Oscars. Another Oscars, another pile of victories to celebrate…and to moan about for the next 12 months. Yep, nothing riles up movie fans quite like the Academy Awards, which have a habit of driving cinephiles absolutely crazy and delighting them in equal measure. The 2019 edition was no different, with the ceremony rotating between “Well, that was deserved!” and “What the hell were they thinking?!” on an award-by-award basis. So let’s break it down. Here are the best and ...

‘Fighting With My Family’ Featurette Focuses on the True Story

A new Fighting With My Family featurette peels back the gauzy biopic curtain to focus on the real true story that inspired the film. Check it out below.

The 15 Best Movies We Saw at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival

The Sundance Film Festival often sets the tone for the entire year in film – it arrives early and plants a flag to announce “these are the first great and most promising movies of the next 12 months.” The /Film team was on the ground in Park City, Utah for the 2019 edition and we saw and reviewed a ton of movies. And we saw so many movies we loved that picking a select few to make a “best of” list turned out to be a bit of a challenge. But make a “best of” list we did! These are the 15 best mov...
