The Countdown: Top Ten Movie Cameos

The Countdown: Top Ten Movie Cameos

| September 19, 2016

One thing I really hated about the latest Ghostbusters movie was the forced cameos throughout.  Except for Ernie Hudson, who I think was a good payoff at the end.  Bill Murray’s role was underwhelming, Dan Aykroyd’s cab driver appearance made no sense, I barely noticed Annie Potts until she screamed “what do you want” for […]

The Countdown: Top Ten Ridiculous Action Movie Scenes

The Countdown: Top Ten Ridiculous Action Movie Scenes

| September 6, 2016

On my podcast, I try to always see the good in things, except for on rare, very fun occasions.  One thing I really like about The Countdown is most of the time they stay very positive.  Their top ten last ten episodes usually feature some movies they really dislike, and occasionally they do lists like […]

The Countdown: Top Ten Kick-ass Female TV Characters

The Countdown: Top Ten Kick-ass Female TV Characters

| August 30, 2016

There’s nothing quite like a strong, intelligent, empowered female character who doesn’t need to be rescued and isn’t defined solely by her need to get a boyfriend.  Someone who not only will keep up with the boys but put them in their place with grace and civility.  Someone who is part of the media world […]

The Countdown: Top Ten Movies From The Past

| August 22, 2016

This week on The Countdown: Movie and TV Reviews podcast, Paul and Wayne are talking about their top ten movies set before the 20th century, so I naturally tweeted them that the best one was Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back.  It takes place a long LONG time ago after all and I […]

The Countdown:  Top Ten Ensemble Films

The Countdown: Top Ten Ensemble Films

| August 15, 2016

The Countdown: Top Ten Ensemble Movies Often on The Countdown: Movie and TV Reviews Podcast, Paul and Wayne discuss what they’re criteria for assembling a given list might be.  Seems fair. Ensemble movies cover a ton of different movies in all genres, time periods, styles, etc, so I wanted to put together a list that […]

The Countdown: Top Ten Kurt Russell Movies

| August 8, 2016

I’m excited to start this new weekly segment. A few months ago, I started a podcast called Quote Unquote Guilty all about guilty pleasures.  Upon getting some of my friends addicted to podcasting, they too started shows of their own and I compiled us all under a shared network: Word Salad Productions.  Recently, I reached […]

Joe’s Best Films of 2015

| January 4, 2016

It turns out I’ve seen a lot of movies this year.  While doing Doug Benson’s 365 movies in 365 days challenge, I managed to get out and see a number of new movies, and am hard pressed to think of any that I feel like I should have seen but didn’t have time for.  I’m […]

My Seven Favorite Films of 2014

| January 16, 2015

I still have not seen a handful of would-be great films—most notably Birdman, Interstellar, and Foxcatcher—but of the thirty films I have seen from 2014, these were my favorites, presented here in alphabetical order due to difficulty of committing them to a ranking order:   BOYHOOD [dir. Richard Linklater] There’s not much else I can […]

Joe Sanders’ Best of 2014

| January 13, 2015

2014 has been an interesting year for film.  Maybe not as strong a year as ’12 or ’13, but I feel pretty good about the following list.  Keep in mind that I haven’t seen certain critically acclaimed movies from this year, including Whiplash, Nightcrawler, Boyhood, and Selma.  That being said, here are the best movies […]

Joe Sanders’ Top Ten of 2013

Joe Sanders’ Top Ten of 2013

| January 17, 2014

I was worried for months that putting together a top ten list for 2013 was going to be impossible.  All of the summer blockbusters were disappointing, and there wasn’t much worth watching until like, November.  Then, everything great came out at once, and it was impossible for me to see everything I wanted to.  2012 […]
