It’s Valentine’s Day today! Can’t think of a better day to talk about some of the great modern romance films we have. Romance films come in many different forms whether they be comedies, dramas, sci-fi, or animated. So let’s jump right in with the twenty-five best romance films to have been released since the year 2000.
The nominees for the 90th Annual Academy Awards were announced yesterday morning and while a lot of the expected favorites performed extremely well, there were a ton of genuine surprises. “The Shape of Water” got 13 nominations, the most of any film this year, while “Phantom Thread,” “Darkest Hour,” and “The Post” managed to get Best Picture nominations. I’ll be going over the entire list of nominees and discussing my thoughts on the top eight categories as well as list off my early predictions for what I think will win, what could win, what should win, and what got snubbed in each category with the exception of the ones that I haven’t seen enough to make a proper judgement. Let’s begin!
2017 has come to a close and there’s been a ton of outstanding films throughout the year. The films have been so outstanding that it was tough to compile a best of the year list that didn’t include films like “A Fantastic Woman,” “The Incredible Jessica James,” “Logan Lucky,” “Split,” “Win It All,” “Wind River,” and “Wonder Woman.” That being said, this list of 24 films that did make the cut are all exciting, fresh, and truly special. So without further ado, here it is – my picks for the top 24 best films of 2017.
Another month down, another ranked list. I saw 16 films released in November and, for the most part, it was a great month for movies. The only major release I missed that I wanted to catch was “Wonder,” especially after hearing such solid buzz. Still, November was filled with strong awards contenders so let’s get started with the list!
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! We got some exciting new releases to celebrate the 4-day weekend as we have Pixar’s latest entry “Coco,” Gary Oldman’s much-buzzed performance in “Darkest Hour,” Dan Stevens and Christopher Plummer starring in “The Man Who Invented Christmas,” and one of the heavy-hitting Oscar frontrunners “Call Me By Your Name.” Let’s take a closer look!
One of the year’s most anticipated blockbusters, “Justice League,” opens this weekend, but that’s not the only movie coming out. In theaters, we have Stephen Chbosky’s “Wonder,” Sony Pictures Animation’s “The Star,” Dan Gilroy’s sophomore feature “Roman J. Israel, Esq.” Netflix is also releasing festival favorite from director Dee Rees, “Mudbound.” So let’s go more in depth with each new release.
There are two new wide release films opening this weekend as well as two movies opening in limited release, including Kenneth Branagh’s star-studded adaptation of “Murder on the Orient Express,” the Will Ferrell/Mark Wahlberg sequel, “Daddy’s Home 2,” Joachim Trier’s twisted Norwegian film, “Thelma,” and Martin McDonaugh’s festival favorite, “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.” Let’s take a closer look into each film and see which ones are worth checking out.
