In honor of this week’s release of ‘The Dark Tower’, starring Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey; based on the popular book series by horror master Stephen King, as well as next month’s newest R-rated adaptation of ‘IT’ by King. I have decided to do my top 10 favorite Stephen King movies. Before I get started, the thing about Stephen King is that his work is so popular that it was a shame I couldn’t do a list on my favorite adaptations until now. Without further ado, here are my Top 10 favorite Stephen King films.
So far, 2017 has been full of decent movies, yet we still had a couple of stinkers (‘Fifty Shades Darker’ and ‘Power Rangers’). Still, the year is not over yet; and since summer is on its way, this feels like the time to list my top 10 anticipated movies of the summer; from May to August.
2016 has given us great things, but I have heard that this was a terrible year. We’ve had to get through the deaths of many beloved celebrities (David Bowie, Prince, George Michael, and Carrie Fisher to name a few.), the controversial 2016 presidential election, social issues, and these films I have listed below. I have sat through both the good and the bad; these films are the definition of the latter. I have managed to avoid a select few (‘Norm of the North’, ‘The Wild Life’, and others that looked bad.), but in the case of these films, I just couldn’t resist the bait that was being cast. These are my picks for the Top 10 Worst Films of 2016 a.k.a the Biggest Traps of the year.
2016 has given us a good year of movies. It is almost Oscar season, so I thought it would be perfect to rank my top ten movies of the previous year. Included in this list are films I thought to have made the biggest impact of my movie-going experience of 2016. These are films that will probably never be made again in the later years to come. So here they are from 10-1 (including some honorable mentions.)
Christmas is almost here, so you know what that means! It’s time to do another Top Ten list of the films I’m excited for in the coming year! 2016 has been an eventful year with both the bad, (‘XOXO‘, ‘Bad Santa 2’, ‘The Boy’), and the good. (‘Eye in the Sky’, ‘Zootopia’, ‘The BFG’, etc.) We are a month away from heading into the new year, and it seems as though Hollywood is dishing out more films for our entertainment. Without further ado, here are my top ten anticipated movies of 2017!!
Science-Fiction is one of the most loved genres of the 80’s, and with the time I have tonight; I will give you my Top 10. Some of these movies you may wonder what happened to, (No spoilers) but it has been hard work to figure out the ones that stood out to me the most. I love 80’s movies, and have a fondness for science-fiction when it comes to that decade. Here they come now!
Pixar is the animation studio of great, beautiful, and inventive movies that feel dated, yet still stand the test of time with hits like ‘Toy Story’ all the way to the most recent sequel ‘Finding Dory’ with Ellen DeGeneres. Pixar will always be a pioneer of the best animation and it is my duty to give you my picks for the top ten Pixar films of all time.
For every musical to work, there has to be some opening number worth listening to. As a person that grew up loving musical movies, there was always something that kept me glued to the screen, and that is: The intro (or Opening Number). Is it catchy? Does it set up the story as well as the tone it’s presenting? Only my Top Ten can determine which musical intros left the biggest impact on my movie-going experiences.

Hello all! It’s Dana again, coming at ya with my first official article!
Now, I love anime as much as the next nerd (affection intended), but with more high quality shows being produced for western audiences all the time I think we should take some time to show some appreciation. During this Christmas season, I’d like to look back at all the shows that have given me so much joy over the years, whether they be recent or from my childhood. I don’t claim to have seen all there is to see of course, and there are definitely some hidden (or not so hidden) gems that I’ll have overlooked. But these are the series that I most enjoyed watching and that still hold up now in some cases. These are very much my opinions only and I reserve the right to use the argument “because it’s fun/awesome/”I was feeling it” as a reason for any of my placements.
