99. Office Christmas Party

I feel like going into a deep explanation of the premise behind Office Christmas Party would not only be a waste of time, but also a little insulting (though I once had someone legitimately, in all seriousness, ask me what Snakes on a Plane was about).  You've probably seen the trailers and/or television spots.  And, even...

98. Nocturnal Animals

Sometimes, a film takes your mind in so many different directions that even Robert Frost wouldn't know which path to follow.  For me, Nocturnal Animals was one of those films.  This is director Tom Ford's second film, after 2009's A Single Man.  I never saw that one, but Nocturnal Animals makes me think that he's...

97. Miss Sloane

From acclaimed director John Madden (Shakespeare in Love, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel) comes a hot-button political thriller starring Jessica Chastain (Thirty Dark Zero, The Martian) that's sure to get a lot of people talking - including people on a certain academy.  Gun control is a never-ending topic of discussion around the country and the...

96. Moonlight

Moonlight is the second feature film from director Barry Jenkins (Medicine for Melancholy) and feels like the beginning to the 2017 Oscar race (though some previous films could very well be contenders, as well).  The film also stars the amazing Mahershala Ali, who stole virtually every scene he was in as Cottonmouth in Marvel/Netflix's recent "Luke...

95. Incarnate

Here we are, with one final horror film in my March to 100.  Incarnate was one that I wasn't expecting much from.  Director Brad Peyton (San Andreas) is still finding his footing and, though he's certainly had some hits along the way, star Aaron Eckhart (The Dark Knight, Sully) has lately seemed like one of...

94. Rules Don’t Apply

It's been fifteen years since Warren Beatty acted in a film and eighteen years since he directed one.  It's extremely cool that I get to include him for both in my March to 100.  Rules Don't Apply isn't the first film to feature a major Hollywood actor portraying eccentric billionaire Howard Hughes (Leonardo DiCaprio prominently tackled...

93. Allied

Allied got a fair amount of attention in recent months as it was rumored that Brad Pitt cheated on Angelina Jolie with his co-star, Marion Cotillard during the filming of the movie.  I don't know and I don't care if that's true (though it would be ironic if, after meeting Jolie on the set of...

92. Moana

Disney has been on quite a roll, both creatively and financially, since Wreck-It Ralph arrived in theaters in 2012.  They proved it wasn't a fluke with Tangled and then cemented themselves, once again, as the leaders in animation with the absolute gem that was Frozen.  Things aren't slowing down anytime soon for the Mouse House as they...

91. The Edge of Seventeen

The Edge of Seventeen was the release from last weekend that I was truly looking forward to most (which makes sense, seeing as how it was number six in my list of 10 Fourth Quarter 2016 Films to Be Excited About).  Due to the schedules of my local theater, it made more sense for me...
