The Greatest Movies of All Time

A few weeks ago, we wrapped up our Top 10 Greatest Movies of All Time. We treated this exercise the same as our 25 Greatest Video Games Ever Countdown, which allowed everyone involved to determine their own guidelines for their list. If you’ve been following and reading the captions each week, you’ll notice that some lists spanned over the lifetime of a writer, while others were based just in their childhood. It is intriguing to say that least.

We decided once again to compile the lists and create our consensus Top 5 Movies of All Time. There were much fewer similarities this time around. The only movies repeated on two lists were Blade Runner, Beauty and the Beast, The Dark Knight, The Fifth Element, The Lion King and Life Aquatic. The only movie that made three lists was The Empire Strikes Back. Star Wars films had five mentions while Lord of the Rings filmed only had two. Other series were even less represented, which speaks volumes about the numbers of films that exist and the diversity in our writers.

Wonder Woman Review: Empower a Generation

Wonder Woman. Wow! What’s all the hype about, you ask? Well, let me tell you. It’s a superhero movie like one I’ve never seen before. However, before I continue, I want to make a suggestion of who you see it with if you’re a female. I went with Hungry and my parents and thoroughly enjoyed it. However, they weren’t affected in the same way I was because they aren’t up-and-coming women. This movie is subtly and in-your-face empowering all at the same time. To them, it may have been just another superhero action movie, but to me it was a lot more. I’m not saying they’re wrong, but I’m telling you why I believe myself and other females like me were more affected. Let me back up and give some context of what this movie was about.
