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)?

If 2017's Oscar-nominated movie posters told the truth

If 2017's Oscar-nominated movie posters told the truth
The mainstream media is full of fake news. Hollywood is full of failing celebs, who don't even know me. If the big movies this Oscar season, which I hear are very overrated, told the truth, they'd look like this. Sad!

101 reasons 2016 wasn't quite as shit as we all thought it was
It's almost over. You almost made it through. You survived 2016. You deserve a medal, but that medal would probably strangle you. We can all focus ahead now on 2017, a year which cannot feasibly be any worse than the 12 months that came before it, at least until that new Keith Lemon & Paddy McGuinness TV show airs on ITV. But le...

Top 20 scenes of 2014: 10-1
Here it is, the culmination of an entire year of sitting in front of a screen to watch movies and then sitting in front of a smaller screen to then write about those movies. These 10 scenes are the best that 2014 had to offer, although obviously that's just my opinion, but even more obviously it's my blog, so if you don't like it you can go and read WhatCulture or something you philistine.

Hello loyal readers and congratulations for making it to the final stages of 2014: all that remains is to square off with the grimly inevitable end-of-year boss.

Ranking the films of alternate universe Christopher Nolan

Ranking the films of alternate universe Christopher Nolan
Listicles! They're terrible. As everyone else concentrates on the important matter of ranking Christopher Nolan's films into an entirely arbitrary order - yes, all nine of them - we thought it would be more suited to the themes of Interstellar if we hopped through a wormhole to rank the films of alternate universe Christopher Nolan.

The Purge: Anarchy in the UK

The Purge: Anarchy in the UK
The Purge: Anarchy - known in some international territories as 'American Nightmare 2' - is released in cinemas next week, continuing to explore the best high concept horror premise in years: what if, in order to reduce crime all year round, all crime including murder was legal for one night only? It's a very American thing, having to specify that murder was included, because if there was a UK version of The Purge, the crimes the British public would commit would be small and twatty. Crimes like these...

Revealed: The 24 greatest unfinished Shiznit articles of 2013
Time for some insight into the working conditions here at Shiznit HQ, where feature ideas are abandoned daily for not being nearly as interesting/funny/cohesive as they seemed like they might be. Cast your eyes on the graveyard that was this year's unpublished drafts in the Shiznit admin, complete with the reasons why we never finished them. (Spoiler: usually it's because they're incredibly shit).
