Andy’s Best Things, 2018 Edition

Andy’s Best Things, 2018 Edition


Hi. I’m late writing this up. I had other plans for ringing in 2019. Honestly, snowboarding and beer are only part of it. If I think about it for a second, I don’t really have a lot to say about 2018; I’m sans a unifying statement to reconcile all of the pop culture I digested … Continue reading

BOFCA’s 2018 Awards (And My Personal Ballot)

BOFCA’s 2018 Awards (And My Personal Ballot)


Well: We did it. It’s not often that a critics group’s awards match up closely with my own feelings, and if I’m being really nitpicky, this year’s Boston Online Film Critics Association awards miss a few marks for me; if you know me well and you’ve followed this blog since I started bitching about a certain … Continue reading

Andy’s Best Things, 2018 Halftime Edition


June has arrived, and also it’s about to end, the month-long worldwide celebrations of my birthday winding down* as I settle into my new age-number and look ahead to the rest of the year**.

Films by Women: Five Movies to Watch in April

Films by Women: Five Movies to Watch in April


April is such a good month for movies directed by women* that this month, for Paste Magazine‘s Films By Women spotlight, we used three in-theaters movies and only two at-home movies to round out the list. Pretty neat! And those in-theater movies are pretty great, being Zama, Blockers, and You Were Never Really Here, which you already know my … Continue reading

“The 25 Best Movies of 2018 (So Far)”

“The 25 Best Movies of 2018 (So Far)”


It’s June. “Best Of (So Far)” list time.  About a third of the blurbs on Paste Magazine‘s June ’18 list have my name on them, and of those that don’t, there are a handful I don’t agree with: I think Avengers: Infinity War is an exhausting slog, How to Talk to Girls at Parties is garbage, and Hereditary … Continue reading

My Most Anticipated Films For IFFBoston ’16

My Most Anticipated Films For IFFBoston ’16


If you have been tuning into this space for the last week and wondering why I have posted exactly zero new updates, it’s because I’ve been gallivanting around Bermuda since the 12th. But I’m back in Boston, and with eight days to spare before Independent Film Festival Boston’s 2016 rumpus, I’d say it’s about time … Continue reading

Liebster Award Blogathon!


Sometimes, people give you a thumbs up. Recently, Andy Buckle over at The Film Emporium did me that honor by name-dropping me in his Liebster Award blogathon post. Over a week has passed since he published his own response to this chain event– I’ll use work, real life, and a mountain of movie reviews as … Continue reading

My Movie Year

My Movie Year


Andy Hart over at Fandango Groovers has a simple question for all of us movie lovers: what’s the best year in film? Or, maybe more easily answered, what’s your favorite year in film? I being such a notoriously indecisive person had to wrestle with these two challenges– with very nearly a century of film to … Continue reading
