Finally, Some Romantic Realism

Why not check out this collection of films that take an observational, not an idealistic, look at what love really is: for all its pains, anxieties, and plateaus. Unless of course you married a dude w...

Dystopian YA Movies

Movies in the vein of 'Hunger Games': YA sci-fi adventures set in dystopias that are often weirdly concerned with the romantic affairs of tweens. Well, to be fair they do seem to be the ones regularly...

Visually Stunning Sci-Fi/ Fantasy

These movies would be worth watching even if the speakers on your TV were busted. But with films like 'Interstellar', 'Life of Pi', and 'Cloud Atlas', don't think for a moment they depend on style ove...

Erotic Horror Films

These erotic horror movies tend to avoid the seedy pitfalls of out and out sexploitation, keeping it (relatively) classy, while mixing violence with eroticism. Give 'Nekromantik' a watch for a serious...
