Top 10 Contracts in the NHL

With more than half of all National Hockey League clubs within $4 million of the current $79.5 million salary cap, it’s safe to say many were relieved when it was widely reported that next season’s ceiling will increase to $83 million. That $3.5 million increase may be enough to give contending teams the room they need to piece things together. What’s even more helpful, however, is when some of your best players are already signed to team-friendly, long-term deals. Young stars signed to long-ter...

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...

Crime Scene Doughnuts and Hurricane Heists: The Best Trash Movies of 2018

To quote the poet Oscar the Grouch, “Oh, I love trash.” There’s a soft-spot in my heart for trash movies. The trashier the better. I’m not talking about the worst movies of the year. Nor am I talking about movies that are so bad they’re good. Instead, I’m referring to a special type of a film – one that is perfectly content to be, well, garbage. Movies with little-to-no ambition that aren’t trying to do…anything. Except present you with cheap, cheesy, trashy spectacle. These are the type of mov...

Ethan Anderton’s Top 10 Movies of 2018

While most of 2018 has brought pure madness around the world, we can take solace in the fact that this year also brought us plenty of great movies. Though I’ll admit that I didn’t see nearly as many as I wanted, I still found myself wowed over and over again by a wide variety of cinema, from some of the year’s biggest blockbusters to the most beautiful, elegant dramas. So without further adieu, let’s get into my Top 10 Films of 2018. Before we begin, I’d like to call attention to a handful of...

Christopher Stipp’s Top 10 Trailers of 2018

Trailers are an under-appreciated art form insofar that many times they’re seen as vehicles for showing footage, explaining films away, or showing their hand about what moviegoers can expect. Foreign, domestic, independent, big budget: What better way to hone your skills as a thoughtful moviegoer than by deconstructing these little pieces of advertising? This week, let’s rank The Best Movie Trailers of 2018. What a strong year for trailers. Some decry the trailers that show too much, reveal ...

All-Time Best Players for Defunct NHL Teams

The what ifs. The coulda shouldas. The almosts. They’re the lost or forgotten teams of the NHL. Those that have relocated or merged or went belly-up. While some teams have been reincarnated, i.e. the Winnipeg Jets became the Arizona Coyotes, this article focuses on selecting the best player from each team that no longer exists in the NHL, including franchises that have moved to different cities. We look back at 10 teams that no longer exist as they once were. (THW/Vince Richards) For the sake ...

The 13 Funniest Movies of 2018: Sex, Death, Racism, Drugs, and Superpowers

Every awards season, there are a lot of comedies that get swept under the rug simply because they’re trying to make people laugh. Most comedies aren’t “good enough” to be considered for Oscars, and even the Golden Globes ignore many of the real comedies in favor of movies pretending to be comedies, like The Martian or Salmon Fishing in the Yemen. This past year brought us a wide array of comedies, but rather than merely classifying them as your average comedy, we wanted to just count down The 1...

The Best Soundtracks of 2018: “What Does Joy Sound Like?”

The films of 2018 featured lovely, strange, and sometimes downright terrifying music. Just what it is that makes a good soundtrack? Is it something that stands out, intruding on scenes? Or is it something that hangs back, to the point where you don’t even notice it? Or perhaps it’s something in between. Or maybe the best film scores are the ones that trigger a specific emotion somewhere within your mind; a memory, a regret, a loving embrace. Music that cuts right through to your very soul. Musi...

The 20 Best Horror Movies of 2018: The Psychotic Drowns Where the Mystic Swims

Horror had a great year in 2018, perhaps because our everyday lives have morphed into an on-going horror story. But while the real world offers no clear conclusion to our current nightmare, horror movies provide a kind of catharsis, because they always draw to an end. Sure, sometimes evil wins in these films, but sometimes, good prevails. The major themes of horror movies in 2018 revolved around revenge, regret, and reflection. So many films on this list are about characters ruminating on the h...

Hoai-Tran Bui’s Top 10 Movies of 2018

2018 has come and gone, and we’re 84 years older for it. But enough of my opining about what a terrible year it was (you’ll probably get plenty of that in everyone else’s pieces). I’m here to talk about the things I loved in 2018, and that was movies. I don’t ascribe to the belief that there are “good” or “bad” years for movies, there are just the movies that personally speak to you every year. And while that number can swell or dwindle each year, there will at least be a couple that unquestion...

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...

The 20 Best Movie Posters of 2018

Now that we’re officially in 2019, the /Film team wanted to take a look back at the year in film that was 2018, and that includes some of the best marketing we saw. Often times, even before a trailer arrives online, we’ll see a poster announcing the arrival of any given movie. And while most posters are forgettable and lack any remarkable style, movie posters are still very much an artform, and a lot of studios know how to do them right. That’s why yours truly took the time to round up what I h...

Chris Evangelista’s Top 10 Movies of 2018

Several people have told me they thought 2018 was a disappointing year for movies. I say: nuts to that.

Below you’ll find my top 10 movies of the year – a list I struggled with, because there were so many films competing to make it into these top spots. In addition to the 10 below, let me just t...

Your Favorite Directors Pick their Favorite Movies of 2018…and ‘Venom’ Makes the List

Edgar Wright, Guillermo del Toro, Attack the Block‘s Joe Cornish, Destroyer filmmaker Karyn Kusama, and many more all weighed-in, singing the praises of a wide variety of 2018 movies.

The 10 Best Movie Capes of 2018

Capes: They’re not just for superheroes. And they never were, thank you very much. Throughout the history of film , capes have been giving high drama to every genre, from historical epics to horror films to character-based dramas to high-fashion romps to, yes, the superhero movie. They’re dramatic, impractical (yes, Edna Mode, “no capes!,” we know ), and too, too damn cool. The cinematic capes of 2018 were no exception.

5 Disappointing NHL Teams

Every NHL team has now played about 10 games, giving us a sense of the direction they are heading in. A couple of teams that were expected to again be bottom dwellers have surprised with their great starts, like the Montreal Canadiens, Vancouver Canucks and Carolina Hurricanes. Then there are the teams that were expected to do great things or even improve but have come up short in disappointing fashion. Based on the first 10 games, it looks like these teams are in for a rough year. In some cases...
