My Favorite Movie Lists

100 Best Black Films of All Time


29 Black Oscar Winners


Here's a Cinnamon Cinephile favorite. 

More than two dozen Black actors or filmmakers have taken Oscar back to their 'hood', and I mean  Beverly Hills, London, or Central Park West, baby.

AFI's 100 Greatest American Films


I love this  movie list because I love the American Film Institute, which shows the best new movies and classic movies.  It has a handy check box feature that counts the movies you've seen and gives you a total at the bottom of the list. COOL! film festivals

100 Best Sci-Fi Movies of All Time


Ok, there are LOTS of pathetic sci-fi lists, but this one is pretty good, even if I DON'T agree with the Top Ten section of the list. But it's from London so there are a few films here that we don't usually see (and no, Tremors isn't on it, honest!) 

The 88 Best Picture Winners


This list is proof that ANYONE can make up a list and publish it. I disagree with almost every comment, BUT it also lists the other nominees (helpful) and movies made in the same year that weren't even nominated (trivia bingo!).  

Chick Flicks for Smart Women


An unfortunate title but a savvy list. A few of my guilty pleasures are here, like Hysteria and Miss Pettigrew Lives For a Day, but stop at #50, the remaining 30 or so titles are from TV. So it's as padded as a 1956 bra.

Movies, film festivals, and fun events!

I talk about movie everything! Yes, from Turner Classic Movies' Film Noir class to the best directors coming out  of 'Nollywood'. I'll tell you how to get to the Sundance Film Festival,  the American Black Film Festival, or the next TCM Cruise. Do you want to open an art house theater...I'll dive into that too. On a deeper side, are Oscars still so white...and male? But, on the lighter side, what the heck is Samuel L. beefing about now?
