What do the Timberwolves' excellent Halloween costumes tell us about them?

The Timberwolves are presenting themselves as a tight-knit, family-style group this season, and with a 3-0 record so far it's hard to argue with the results.

Morales: 25 memories from 25 years on boxing beat

Twenty-five years. That’s how long this column has been alive, as of March 7. It seems only right I should come up with 25 memories. Although the first is No. 1, the rest just fall in as I recall them. These are not all pleasant. 1) The greatest fight I’ve covered was the first ring war between Diego Corrales and Jose Luis Castillo on May 7, 2005 at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. Corrales was decked twice in the 10th round of an all-out slug-fest and appeared done. Corrales somehow rose both times –...

The Latest Celebrity Autopsies on Tape: Five Comic Books that Deserve a Film Adaptation

Since Generation X filmmakers came of age, comic books have been the driving narrative force behind every other piece of media in existence. Black Panther won three Oscars and Marvel’s overall box office take makes it wealthier than some continents. Unfortunately, as happened in the 1990s, the marketplace is becoming saturated with product of questionable merit. While the aforementioned Black Panther is a good movie in its own right, there are things like Suicide Squad that dilute the genre. Not...

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...
