Didn't Find What You Were Looking For?

'One Straw Too Many': Old-School Vigilantes

'Dirty Harry', 'Walking Tall', 'Taxi Driver': They just don't make vigilante flicks like they used to! These films simply can't be matched for raw grit and the moral conundrums they present. Is anyone above the law? The answer is no, nobody. Except Clint Eastwood. He definitely is.

Gritty Portraits of PTSD

A collection of films grappling with the issues soldiers face returning to civilian life from combat. Make sure to check out 'The Messenger' for a critically-acclaimed drama following one veteran's romance with the wife of a deceased officer.

'Movies like Pulp Fiction': Cult Crime Movies

In the vein of 'Reservoir Dogs' or 'Mean Streets': movies that have spawned their own sub-cultures of dedicated fans (and provided a plethora of movie-poster choices for college freshmen decorating their dorms). If you haven't heard of each and every single one of these, you're just not a film-buff. Sorry.

'Movies Like A Bronx Tale': Pre-Giuliani Crime Flicks

Films set in the grittiest bits of New York City, all before Giuliani cleaned it up. Think 'A Bronx Tale', 'The Warriors', and 'Taxi Driver'. Gang dress codes were so much more creative back then!

'Antiest of Anti-Hero Movies': Seriously Entertaining Psychos

The anti-hero movie at its most extreme: watch these morally bankrupt, mentally unsound, and somehow highly watchable protagonists wreak all the havoc you wish you could, but know you can't. Like Grand Theft Auto in movie format!

'The Cruelest Animal': Chilling Portraits of Evil

What is evil? The question has haunted theologians for millennia, but seems to make modern people uncomfortable. This eclectic collection of films eschews cartoonish tropes, delving into the real nature of evil as a psychological, spiritual, and social phenomenon.

Oscar Best Picture Nominees 70’s

'The Godfather', 'Apocalypse Now', 'The Last Picture Show' - has cinema reached these heights since? Make up your own mind, but only after you check out this collection of films nominated for the Oscars best-picture award during the 1970s.
