“If only you knew how little I know about the things that matter…” Another year end countdown video looking back at the best movies of 2017. “The Moviejerk” has released a video called Best of Cinema: 2017 Edition that features clips from his favorite films edited together to songs from the films this year, similar to David Ehrlich’s year end recap. Janz Anton-Iago is “The Moviejerk” and runs the website of the same name. He includes footage from Pablo Larraín’s Jackie in this, because it was released in the UK in 2017 (even though it was released in 2016 in the US). He explains in the intro that this is more of a “video mood-piece” capturing his feelings from all the best films he saw throughout the year. It’s actually worth a watch. Original description from The Moviejerk’s Vimeo: Finally, after weeks of compiling the great and glorious moments of this year’s films, let me officially unveil to you my video …

Enter a universe where more than one wears the mask. Sony Pictures recently unveiled an awesome first teaser trailer for the animated Spider-Man movie, which is now officially titled Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. Yes, this is the one that is being developed by Phil Lord & Chris Miller, who wrote the script and are producing as well. And yes, this is also the Spider-Man movie that features Miles Morales, the black kid for Brooklyn, and he seems pretty damn cool. The only problem is the wait to watch this – one full year from now. Too long! I want it now! Shameik Moore (from Dope!) voices Miles, and the rest of the cast includes Liev Schreiber, Mahershala Ali, and Brian Tyree Henry. This looks really damn good, seriously, the animation style is slick but the whole thing just has a fresh, thrilling, fun vibe to it. And it doesn’t even seem to tread on MCU’s territory or Tom Holland as …

*Spoilers for “Jessica Jones” season one.* Read no further if you haven’t watched it. If you did watch the Netflix superhero series from Marvel you’d know that the gaslighting psychological-abuser antagonist Kilgrave (David Tennant) was killed by the s…

A closeup shot of Tonya Harding’s skate crushing a lit cigarette serves as a visual representation of the figure skater as a whole in I, Tonya, a biography of her life and the events that led to her controversial end in the sport. Harding was a force in the skating world: unrefined, rebellious, and unapologetic but with a raw talent that world had never seen before or since. It makes sense Harding’s tenure in the figure skating world ended in controversy. I, Tonya, directed by Craig Gillespie, doesn’t shy from the darker turns her life took, the film’s screenplay working from rumor and the unreliable narration of the people around her. It’s a stunning story, dark and comical in equal turns, and the film relays the events in splendid fashion as well as giving us a star-making turn by Australian actress Margot Robbie as the eponymous character. That controversial end to her skating career came when Harding’s rival, Nancy Kerrigan (Caitlin …
