Weekly Recap: Paddington 2, The Post, Phantom Thread & More!


Good news! Paddington 2 is currently the best film of 2018. That could change but the film is honestly so good I look forward to seeing the film that is actually better. So that review is there and while I haven't, as of yet, seen The Commuter (I will this weekend) or Proud Mary (no screenings, but it looks fun), I can say films from Steven Spielberg and Paul Thomas Anderson are now in wider release and that's great for everybody. Also in this post - reviews for new home releases and all of my year-end lists. Lastly, our great Top Ten podcast episode is here for your listening pleasure as well. Enjoy!

In Theaters Now:

(Absolutely terrific)

(Now in wide release, another great Spielberg film)

(Now in wider release and a solid drama)

(Now in wider release and a great biopic)

Out Now 312: Top Ten of 2017


This week’s Out Now with Aaron and Abe ends 2017 properly by going over the best it had to offer at the movies. Aaron and Abe are joined by Brandon Peters and Zaki Hasan to go through everyone’s Top Ten Films of 2017. By everyone, that means the group also delves into the various lists of friends of the show, guests, and listeners, as well as their own. There’s also discussion of how these lists were assembled, runner-ups, what to look forward to in 2018, and more. Among topics covered, we have a fun round of Know Everybody (3:48), the Top Ten (12:50), runner-ups (2:14:48), and a look at what’s coming soon (2:17:10). We then wrap things up (2:22:27) and end on some bloopers (2:32:48), following this week's closeout song.  So now, if you’ve got an hour or so to kill…

Weekly Recap: Insidious 4, Molly's Game, My Most Anticipated Films of 2018 & More!


It's business, as usual, this week, as the first week of the year gives us a new horror movie, while the award contenders continue to spread to more theaters. This year it's Insidious: The Last Key, which is not horrible, but still a bit of a miss. Meanwhile, Aaron Sorkin's Molly's Game opens into its widest release. Additionally, I have lots of lists, now including my most anticipated films of the year. There were also several new home releases, including The Breakfast Club from The Criterion Collection. Lastly, we had a new podcast last week, so feel free to listen in on that as well. Enjoy!



In Theaters Now:


(Aaron Sorkin delivers a great script and fairly good direction)

2017 Year-End Recap: The Top Ten Films of 2017


Here is my final list of the Top Ten films for 2017, which can also be found in a slightly altered format over at Why So Blu (it features tons of Easter Eggs). This was a lot of work, but plenty of fun as I was able to write up a few great posts that led to this final list of excellent films from 2017. I hope everyone reads about what I have laid out here and hopefully seeks out a number of these films and more for themselves, as there is plenty to discover, in addition to the films many may have already seen. Read through this list and, of course, go back and check out the others. Feel free to comment and most of all - Enjoy! (Review links in each summary)

2017 Year-End Recap: Favorite Movie Moments & Random Film Shout Outs


I will be publishing my Top Ten Films of 2017 list over at Why So Blu? on December 29th. It will be posted here at a later date as well, but leading up to the Top Ten, I will be posting a few lists reflecting my thoughts on the many films from this year. This list features a collection of my favorite movie moments of the year, along with a variety of films I wanted to give a shout out to. Whether they are documentaries I caught up with, big blockbusters I was entertained by, or the smaller or foreign-language films I really enjoyed but couldn't fit into my top ten, let alone my top forty, I wanted to provide a list that gave them all some more notice. As far as the moments, there were some genuinely sublime moments of cinema that I wanted to single out for a new idea for a list I had. So here are the listings of favorite movie moments (mild spoilers) and some random shout outs for the films of 2017 (with links to the reviews for each when available).

2017 Year-End Recap: Top 40 Through 11 Films


On December 29th, I will be publishing my Top Ten Films of 2017 list over at Why So Blu?. That same list will be posted here at a later date as well. For the time being, I still have a couple lists I wanted to share reflecting my thoughts on the many films from this year. The following post features my Top 40 through 11 favorites. It's a big list for sure, and as usual, I am always pleased with how these runner-up lists essentially look like a couple great top ten lists of their own. These picks may not have made it to my Top Ten (some were harder choices than others) but I still really appreciated what they had to offer. So here is a large batch of my favorites from 2017 (with links to the reviews for each when available).

2017 Year-End Recap: Disappointments, Worsts & Movies I Didn't Get


Let's get this over with. I enjoy putting together these end of the year lists, as it's fun to recap the year in film and give praise to film's worthy of recognition. Of course, there's also this list, which focuses on the misfires. Honestly, I've never had much of a taste for concentrating on which films I just wasn't into, and I likely won't have too much commentary on where these picks stem from by the time I've finished up writing this post (reviews are linked though). That said, I've combined three different categories here. This list contains my picks for the most disappointing films of the year, the movies that seemed to be loved by most audiences that I just wasn't into, and my picks for the worst films of the year. I will note I did not see every movie considered "bad" (sorry Emoji Movie), but here we go.
