“The 100 Best Comedies of All Time”

“The 100 Best Comedies of All Time”


Good morning! It’s Wednesday, so please, have another “100 best” list. This time: It’s hilarious. Comedy being the most subjective genre, I have a bunch of personal ordering gripes here, most of them being “nothing ranked after What’s Up, Doc? is actually fucking funnier than What’s Up, Doc?, especially all of the movies made in the last five … Continue reading

The 100 Best Horror Movies of All Time

The 100 Best Horror Movies of All Time


Picking 100 movies to represent the all-timers of their category is a thankless and impossible task; even if you hit all the major titles needed to give the list gravitas, you’re going to end up leaving out titles that one person might think are essential, or another person will take exception to the ordering, or … Continue reading

The 100 Best Movies of the 1950s

The 100 Best Movies of the 1950s


Next up in Paste Magazine’s “100 Best/Greatest” series: The 1950s! I blurbed my ass off for this list, and I’d do it again in a heartbeat (which is to say that I am literally doing it again right now, for a different list focused on a different subject. As Hexxus once said: No breaks!). Anywho … Continue reading

Paste’s 100 Best Film Noirs Of All Time

Paste’s 100 Best Film Noirs Of All Time


“Since its coining in 1946 by French critic Nino Frank, who observed from afar something dark, quite literally, going on at the American cinema, the term “film noir” has been debated and debated and debated some more. Is it a genre? A subgenre? A movement? A trend? A commentary? A style? For the purposes of … Continue reading

“The 50 Best Slasher Movies of All Time”

“The 50 Best Slasher Movies of All Time”


It’s been so long since I put together my big blurb contribution for Paste Magazine‘s list of the 50 best slasher movies of all time (of all time!) that I actually…forgot we hadn’t yet published it. But we hadn’t! And now we have! I wrote about Tenebrae, the Dario Argento meta classic, and you’ll also see re-ups … Continue reading

Andy’s Best Things, 2017 Edition

Andy’s Best Things, 2017 Edition


As usual, as I do each year (each year, at least, since first creating this blog), and as you expect me to do, I have compiled my top ten list for 2017. Also as usual, that list includes five honorable mentions. Not at all as usual, I’ve generously expanded this annual enterprise to include two of … Continue reading

Best of Criterion’s New Releases, May 2017

Best of Criterion’s New Releases, May 2017


Hey! It’s May(‘s Criterion round-up for Paste Magazine)! An Ozu movie written around fart jokes is an Ozu movie well in my wheelhouse, but I did not write about Good Morning; instead I wrote about Jeanne Dielman, 23 quai du Commerce, 1080 Bruxelle, Chantal Akerman’s landmark arthouse film, a three hour opus about a single mom as she … Continue reading

Best of Criterion’s New Releases, June 2016

Best of Criterion’s New Releases, June 2016


You can probably guess, based on the header, that Fantastic Planet is my favorite release from The Criterion Collection’s June slate, but it’s so hard to choose: Everything this month is great, though my compadres at Paste Magazine and I were only able to get through four of them. Just four! That’s a fraction of the slate’s … Continue reading

“Here’s a Recap of Every Single ‘Rambo’ Movie”

“Here’s a Recap of Every Single ‘Rambo’ Movie”


It’s all in the subject line: Rambo, the franchise, summarized. (There’s even a dismissive blurb about the Rambo kids’ show that no one likely remembers, which, honestly, that’s for the best.) I know we’re a ways out from Rambo V, but it’s never too early to do your homework, and there’s some homework to do on this totally nutty … Continue reading
