This week on National Review: It’s time to make a list of the best new movies out right now, from the most innovative to the most promising.
It’s not a list that is based on reviews.
Rather, it’s based on the movie-going experience.
This week: The first three films of 2018, including The Big Sick, which is based loosely on the life of famed Russian film director Aleksandr Sokurov.
In the meantime, The Big Lebowski was not only the most critically acclaimed film of the year, it was also the first to win the Academy Award for best original screenplay.
It was the first film to win Best Picture, Best Director and Best Actor.
The first time an independent film had won three Oscars was in 1964, when The Maltese Falcon won the Best Picture Oscar for director Charles Burnett’s adaptation of the novel by H.G. Wells.
It won the best director Oscar for Jack Palance in 1997.
The film’s director, Barry Jenkins, has since directed six other Best Picture winners.
This film has the power to reshape the way we think about what it means to be a movie fan.
It is a testament to the strength of American filmmaking and the talent of its directors that it was able to do this despite its subject matter.
(The Washington Post) The second film to be released this week is The Disaster Artist, which stars Kevin Costner as a wealthy, eccentric father who finds himself haunted by a horrific murder in the late 1960s and has a secret that could end his life.
It tells the story of the brutal murder of a young black man in the 1970s, the first such incident to have been blamed on a white perpetrator.
In many ways, the film is a reflection of the culture at the time, as well as the culture as a whole.
But the film has its own unique touch, as it tells the truth about a man who can’t help but make things worse.
(Variety) The third film released this weekend is The Fosters, which centers on the story, through the eyes of two teenage boys, of a woman who leaves her husband and kids to raise her four children on her own.
The Folds is a heartbreaking story about the loss of a loved one, and it is one of the most heart-wrenching films I have ever seen.
(Vulture) The fourth film released is The Imitation Game, a film that tells the tale of a serial killer who has been able to escape justice in the form of the video game, and whose plans for the future are laid out in the pages of a diary he keeps in his computer.
In a year that has seen a resurgence in violent video games, The Imitators Game is a fitting tribute to one of 2016’s most popular games, which has spawned countless sequels, spinoffs and spin-offs, and has even spawned a television series and a live-action film.
(TIME) The fifth film released on Friday is The Shape of Water, which chronicles the life and times of two women, a scientist and an aspiring writer, who meet in a cabin on a remote Canadian island.
It will be the first time a female director has directed a feature film, and for good reason.
The Shape is an emotional, poignant, deeply moving film, with powerful performances from Idris Elba, Nicole Kidman, Jennifer Lawrence and Tilda Swinton.
(Time) The sixth film released in a week is Star Wars: The Last Jedi, which will be directed by Rian Johnson, and stars Mark Hamill, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Adam Driver and Oscar Isaac.
It looks like it will be a classic for the ages, which means the cast is full of new and returning stars.
But I don’t think we’ll be seeing this film until December.
(Hollywood Reporter) The seventh film released will be The Big Short, which opens in theaters Friday.
It chronicles how the financial crash of 2008 caused the world’s major banks to collapse, forcing the government to print money.
It features the voices of Amy Schumer, Seth Rogen, Judd Apatow, Woody Harrelson, Paul Rudd and Adam McKay.
(Starlog) The eighth film released Friday will be Star Wars Episode VIII: The Force Awakens, which takes place during the events of the prequels.
It stars Daisy Ridley as Rey, John Harrison as Kylo Ren, Adam Rankin as Finn, Laura Dern as Rey’s uncle Ben Solo, Gwendoline Christie as Leia Organa, Laura Linney as General Leia Organia, Gwennifer Hutchison as General Hux, Diego Luna as C-3PO, Lupita Nyong’o as Poe Dameron, Domhnall Gleeson as Captain Phasma and Michael Rooker as Poe.
(CBS News) The ninth film released Thursday will be American Sniper, which focuses on a sniper whose life is turned upside down after killing two people in Iraq
