Directed by Josh Trank

Entertaining, relatable, and miraculously plausible, Chronicle is one of the best superhero movies I've ever seen and up to this point, the best movie of the year.

21 Jump Street

21 Jump Street

Directed by Phil Lord & Chris Miller

Based on a drama TV series from the 1980s, 21 Jump Streep has its fair share of buddy action/comedy cliches, but that's half the point. By no means a great movie, but still very entertaining.

Top 10 Most Anticipated Movies of 2012

Since this is our last year on Earth, it would only make sense that so many awesome movies would be released right before the end of days. So, in honor of the fact that we're all going to be dead by the end of the year, I have decided to compile a list of my most anticipated movies of 2012. Enjoy, before it's too late...

The Grey

The Grey

Directed by Joe Carnahan

A very surprising January release, The Grey is a thoroughly engrossing survival thriller with a great lead performance by Liam Neeson and the perfect blend of action and drama.

The Devil Inside

The Devil Inside

Directed by William Brent Bell

Yet another in a long line of "found footage" horror films, The Devil Inside simply doesn't provide enough scares or atmosphere to pass as an effective horror movie.

Top 10 Male Performances of the 1960s

The 1960s marked a new era for cinema. As did the 1950s... and the 1970s.... and the 1940s... and just about every other decade. But the 1960s marked a new age as well, making them every bit as valuable to the evolution of film as any other decade, so why not continue my little list there?

And seeing as how I have started this list-set, I am now forced to make more and more of them until the end of time, because I'm a slave to my lists. And now, because I can't control myself, I will count down my top 10 favorite male acting performances of the 1960s, commercial-free and without any interruption -- excluding the brief advertisements for Tide laundry detergent Axe body spray... I've gotta make money somehow.

Top 10 Male Performances of the 1950s

Have I ever given a good reason why I love doing lists? For one, you can always update and change them as time goes by, and use them as a good gauge for what all you have seen, and what you still need to see. Secondly, because they are SO easy to do. Thirdly, they give me a great opportunity to show off how much time I've wasted watching movies; because I like showing off and I love watching movies.

For a fourth and more minor reason, they give me a great way to avoid creativity and make giant sets of lists like this for my blog. So, I now present to you my top 10 best (and favorite) male acting performances of the 1950s.

Top 10 Male Performances of the 1940s

Since everything about movie reviews is stupid, I have decided to go ahead and make more lists -- because the world needs more lists, evidently. So here is my top 10 countdown of the best (and my personal favorite) male acting performances of the 1940s.

Now normally I would just post a list like this in direct order with no frills and you wouldn't have to scroll past meaningless lines of text to see it. But I'm not letting you off that easy this time. No, no, no, this time I'm going to actually write about why I have chosen these performances, so you'll have to do even more scrolling to actually see the list. Why am I doing this? Because I'm evil and I hate you, that's why. So, without any further meaningless lines of rambling text, I present my list... along with some more meaningless lines of rambling text.
