One of the great things about cinema is its ability to capture reality perfectly, to stop time in a bottle, and reveal things as they truly are.

And if you don’t, then these five films are guaranteed to introduce you to that unique, call-out-for-help-sleep-with-the-lights-on-did-I-just-wet-myself…experience. 5. Halloween (1978) Spoiler video alert! (As if you haven’t seen it already!) The plot of John Carpenter’s teen slasher film might sound a little familiar because, well, it’s a teen ...Read More »
Comedy is a notoriously subjective genre. With tastes running the gamut from dry and droll to loud and crass, there is no argument more unwinnable than a disagreement about whether or not something is worth a laugh.

One of the cool things about viral videos, whatever their content, is in their capacity to bring people together. The next time you’re walking down the street, think about how many people around you have laughed at “Charlie Bit My Finger” and suddenly you will feel just a little less alone in the world. An annoying counterpart to that phenomenon ...Read More »

It’s a complicated business, determining what are, in real terms, the highest-grossing films of all time. Any idiot knows that “Star Wars” was a bigger box office hit than “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” – but if you go by unadjusted figures, the latter took in more dollars at the box office. So my point is – the unadjusted box office figures ...Read More »
