20 reasons for Hollywood's worst summer in 20 years
It's official: this summer was the worst summer for movies in over 20 years. Labor Day box-office receipts were down 45% compared to the same weekend in 2016, leaving analysts to declare summer 2017 a total cinematic washout. But why? I mean, obviously all the movies were terrible, but why really? We went in search of answers and by God, we found them.

What are the six best movies?
As a film fan, I often wonder what the best films are. Which ones are best? Which ones do people like? Are some films more liked than others? You have to admit, it's interesting. Films, I mean. Some are great, but others are just brilliant. Some are bad but most are okay. It's a wide spectrum. But what if there was some sort of ranking of the films? In order of quality. That's what I'm going to try right now. What are the best movies? Let's find out. What are the best ones. (Films)?

"Our horror movie title is terrible. Should we make the tagline worse to make it sound comparatively better?"

"Our horror movie title is terrible. Should we make the tagline worse to make it sound comparatively better?"
Alternate suggestions: 'Evil just Shared your post', 'Evil just added you to Messenger', 'Evil is attending an Event in your area'.

Hot take: Martin Scorsese's Joker movie might be good but might also be bad, more as it develops

Hot take: Martin Scorsese's Joker movie might be good but might also be bad, more as it develops
Two separate news stories broke in the same news story this morning. First, it was reported that Martin Scorsese would be producing a brand new '80s crime-era origin story for The Joker, with the role recast and the film unrelated to the nascent DC Cinematic Universe. Then, upon further scrutiny, it was discovered in the same report that Todd Phillips would be directing it. Oh. Right. Rough, meet smooth. Depending on how you frame it, this is either a savvy move from DC to decentralise their movie universe by putting legendary filmmaking talent at the centre of it, or it's an act of desperation from a studio who can't settle on a tone and can't even keep an actor interested in a role between one movie and the next. Which opinion is correct? Find out after these messages!

19 mini existential crises I had while watching A Ghost Story
Forget everything I ever said about Personal Shopper, A Ghost Story is the depiction of harrowing torment in an eternal abyss of obscurity that you always wanted. Assuming that you always wanted it.

Dear James Cameron, please stop encouraging Terminator sequels, ta
This is not a hit-piece on James Cameron. I love James Cameron. I think Terminator 2 is one of the best films of all time. I held the first screening of True Lies in London for 20 years. I cried at Titanic. I will vigorously defend the concept of the Avatar sequels to the hilt. But this is not a love letter to James Cameron either. This is a sternly worded warning to James Cameron that politely requests he stops encouraging, endorsing and/or making Terminator movies. I'm not angry, I'm just disappointed.

Review: Shin Godzilla
I love this monster and his curvy body. As a teenager, I was often teased by my friends for my attraction to amphibians on the giant side, ones who were bigger and scalier, monsters that the average (basic) film-goer might refer to as "scary" or even "ridiculous."

Rewriting the synopsis of Our Souls At Night, the title of an actual film
If you are British, you are probably already laughing at that title. If you're American, you're probably wondering what all the fuss is about. If so, please read this tweaked synopsis, which I punched up to play to the film's biggest strength: its amazing title.

This isn't going to be one of those cringeworthy, 'Dear Hollywood, you should make a sequel to one of my favourite movies, so here is my idea for that sequel, so let me know when you are planning to make it' type fan posts. No. This is an entirely serious discussion about the viability of a Demolition Man sequel, complete with my proposal for a sequel, along with- shit, wait, that's exactly what it is.
