Splitting the ticket: The 2016 fall movie preview, part 1

Drama! Comedy! Action! Horror! In 2016, the best source for all of the above hasn’t been the multiplex. It’s been the ongoing three-ring circus that is the U.S. presidential election. Forget movie screens—a truly unpredictable narrative is unfolding in real time on all of our televisions and laptops. Isn’t our regular…

The 50 best comedies since 2000

Sixteen years in, our new millennium looks like a banner age for big-screen comedy, as eclectic as any that came before it.

More even than usual, the year’s best films took different shapes, sizes, and routes to eyeballs. Multiplexes…

The 20 worst films of 2015

Tomorrow, The A.V. Club dramatically unveils its list of the year’s best movies, counting down our favorite summer blockbusters, award-season indies, and foreign-made triumphs from 2015. Before we get to the highs, however, it’s our duty (okay, our petty pleasure) to dispense with the lows: Like the artist responsible…

The best film scenes of 2015

Not every great movie has a standout great scene, just as not every great scene comes from a great movie. That’s our convoluted way of saying that The A.V.
