Hubert Vigilla's Top 20 Films of 2017

2017 was a grim, crummy year for the world, but a pretty darn good one for film. So many of the movies I loved in 2017 tended toward strangeness or kindness, often a bit of both. I think we could all use a little bit more of each in our dai...

The Best Stand Up on Netflix Right Now

At the tender age of 10, I was plopped down in my Fathers car on the way home from dinner. My brothers leg jutted into my right knee, and we pushed against each other as the car swerved around corners, and cradled us over bumps in the ...

Four patriotic movies to watch on the Fourth of July

The most patriotic of our major American holidays is upon us and for many that means barbeques, a day off from work, and fireworks. But me? Barbeques aren't the same for me since I don't eat meat, I work today because freedom ain't free, ...

Every Power Rangers Season, Ranked

It's been a weird twenty something years. Power Rangers has seen good days and bad days, both supreme bouts of popularity and near cancellation. Yet somehow, this series has survived so long that it's managed to get three different adaptati...

 
 
Power Rangers Month photo

Every Sixth Power Ranger, Ranked

Through its 24 seasons or so of existence, Power Rangers has become a show with its own set of traditions. Each season of the show may change, but a lot of the core elements stay the same: a rocking theme, colored spandex, and there's alway...

Every Power Rangers Suit, Ranked

As I've learned watching through 831 episodes of Power Rangers for two thirds of my life, a Ranger is only as good as their suit. A suit design can make or break a series through first impressions, and bad designs have indeed turned fans aw...

Hubert's Top 15 Movies of 2016

By plenty of measures, 2016 was a pretty crummy year. 2017 probably isn't going to be much better, to be honest. But we keep going. We may need to lean on family and friends to get us through, but we keep going. And like any year, we'll go ...

Nick's Top 15 Movies of 2016

2016 was full of all sorts of losses for me. My life went through a few unwelcome changes, we've got a crazy President now, and the general air was full of strife. But at least there were some good movies last year. The year may not have be...

FlixList: Wes Craven's Five Best Films

Top 12 Nintendo Films photo

12 films based on Nintendo games we need (right now)

2014 was a pretty great year for movies, so coming up with a year end list was pretty tough for me. Originally I thought I'd just do top 5, and then top 10... but no. It had to be top 15 because I saw so many awesome films last year, and it...
