    The Definitive Religious Movies: 30-21

    What makes films about religion so interesting is the way some manage to tread a line between support and criticism, while some are vehemently anti-religion or pro-religion.

    The Definitive Kubrickian Films: 20-11

    Philip Seymour Hoffman: Undersung and Underpraised

    I still remember the first time I saw Philip Seymour Hoffman. It was in Paul Thomas Anderson’s  Magnolia, and I was 13 years old.

    #10: The Cabin in the Woods (107 points) Written by Joss Whedon and Drew Goddard Directed by Drew Goddard USA, 2012 Like Scream, it’s a self-aware slasher film, but where Scream was happy simply to turn the genre’s bloody glove inside out and examine the stitching, The Cabin in the Woods has more complicated ambitions. If Scream is […] More
