#ConTENders for My Top Ten of 2017 (so far)

I’ve been slacking. I’ll be the first to admit it. I meant to make an individual post about each film I had thought had a chance to make my Top Ten list of 2017, and between work and other projects, I have let you, fine readers, down.

To make it up to you, here are the films that may very well make my Top Ten list this year that don’t have their own post. For the previously posted see–  Split | Get Out | Logan | Kong: Skull Island |

Wow, I didn’t post that many, did I? I hope you all didn’t think that I hadn’t seen any more great films! I will continue posting #ConTENders with the jam-packed fall and winter as scheduled. So stay tuned for that.Read More »

My Top Ten Films of 2016

It’s that time of year again (or rather it’s long overdue)! Where I take my favorite films of the year, and arbitrarily order them to my liking for all of you to read. I’m quite needy, right? Not only that, but they’re never as easy as one might expect them to be, and 2016 was no exception.

Once again, like the Top 15 of 2015, this list is a collection derived from both the caliber of the films and how they impacted me on a personal level.

We Need Movies video with elaboration and additional points here!

So naturally, there will be some surprises. But first–Read More »

“Hell or High Water” #ConTENders *Spoiler-Free

Oscar Season has officially begun.

I just came out of the recent Crime/Drama two-hander, written by Taylor Sheridan, and directed by David Mackenzie:

hell-or-high-water-poster

Hell or High Water is a smart and seditious look into the darker side of financial ruin. The Howard brothers, Tanner and Toby (played by Ben Foster and Chris Pine, respectively), are both on the wrong side of the social system: The former recently released from prison, and the latter struggling to keep his family’s ranch from the clutches of their local Texas Midland Bank.Read More »
