The 10 Best Movies in Theaters Right Now (March 10th Edition)


We’re back with Paste Magazine’s routine and newly evergreen “10 best movies in theaters” feature! (Meaning: We’re going to update this sucker on a regular basis without remaking a new list every time the month changes over. Seems more efficient, yeah?) This round-up features, among other films, XX, Get Out, Kong: Skull Island, and of course Moonlight, which got … Continue reading

OFCS Announces 20th Annual Award Winners


This is it, dudes and dudettes: My last “best of 2016” post, at least I think it is, because who knows, I could have written a thing or three for other lists that I’ve just plum forgotten about.  Anywho, what the title says.

BOFCA 2016 Year-End Top Ten Podcast


Funny fact/fun fact: The Boston Online Film Critic Association‘s year-end top ten podcast lasts about as long as most of the films on the actual top ten itself, so you can either listen to the podcast, or you can go watch one of those films.
