Here’s a great list from CineFix of the 10 most beautiful films of all time. I pretty much agree with most of their choices. Here’s a breakdown of their list.
10. Russian Ark
I saw this once and I appreciate the work that went into it. That being said it’s boring as hell and I never need to see it again.
The only movie on this list I don’t agree with (mostly because I’m not a Woody Allen fan). I would have gone with Raging Bull.
8. Citizen Kane
If you want to see another great Orson Welles movie, one that I actually like more than Citizen Kane, then check out Touch of Evil staring Charlton Heston.
7. 2001: A Space Odyssey
Check out our Stanley Kubrick’s Director’s Spotlight
6. The Conformist
The only movie on this list I haven’t seen.
5. The Fall
One of the more underrated films I’ve ever seen. Check this out if you haven’t seen it.
My personal favorite Jet Li film of all time.
3. Lawrence of Arabia
If you get a chance I recommend watching this on the big screen.
2. The Tree of Life
While I, along with almost everyone, didn’t care for this movie, it was definitely gorgeous to look at.
Not much to say about this one because there’s no narrative, but I do recommend seeing it.

Today is Kevin Bacon’s 57th birthday so in celebration we’re going to look at my 5 personal favorite Kevin Bacon movies in order of when they came out. Keep in mind these are my personal favorites, not necessarily his best.
1. Friday the 13th (1980)
Even though he already had a few credits to his name, this is where most of us first met Mr. Bacon. His character made the mistake of having sex and smoking weed in a horror movie so of course he had to be killed…with a knife through the neck in bed.
2. Planes, Trains & Automobiles (1987)
This isn’t really a Kevin Bacon movie but it’s one of my all-time favorites and he makes a quick cameo as a man racing Steve Martin to a taxi down the streets of New York.
3. Tremors (1990)
This is by far my all time favorite Kevin Bacon movie. His character Valentine lives in the tiny desert town of Perfection which comes under attack from giant underground snake monsters called graboids. I’m actually kind of embarrassed of how many times I’ve seen this movie.
4. JFK (1991)
Kevin Bacon plays Willie O’Keefe and has one of the most memorable scenes on the entire movie. “You don’t know s**t cause you’ve never been f**ked in the ass!”
5. Apollo 13 (1995)
Bacon plays astronaut Jack Swigert in Apollo 13, a movie that somehow is stressful even though we all know the ending. How the hell did Ron Howard do that?!
Up in the Air
The River Wild
Stir of Echoes
There’s my 5 favorite Kevin Bacon movies. Do you agree with my choices or think they’re terrible? Happy birthday Mr. Bacon!!
Today is Morgan Freeman’s 77th birthday, so to celebrate the occasion here’s my 5 personal favorite Morgan Freeman movies.
Driving Miss Daisy (1989)
Gone Baby Gone (2007)
Million Dollar Baby (2004)
5: The Dark Knight (2008)
Now I know most people would put this way higher on the list, and I normally would to. But the reason it’s at number 5 is because it’s not really a “Morgan Freeman movie”. It’s a Christian Bale/Heath Ledger movie, Freeman just happens to have a role in it as Bruce Wayne’s business manager Lucius Fox. But that fact that it’s one of my all-time favorites and in my opinion the absolute best comic book movie ever is the reason I had to include it on this list.
4: Lucky Number Slevin (2006)
I can hear you all right now collectively saying, “whaaaaaaaat?” Here me out though. To me this is a truly underrated movie. Yes, it does think it’s smarter than it actually is, but that doesn’t really take away what it has going for it. It’s one of the few movies that I actually like Josh Hartnett, Lucy Liu is freaking adorable, Bruce Willis and Ben Kingsley are baddass, and it’s one of the very few times Morgan Freeman plays a villain. That reason alone is why it’s on the list, also the movie is awesome.
Now this is where the order becomes very difficult to chose.
3: Seven (1995)
What can I say about this movie: it’s dark, depressing, violent, and one of the best movies of all time. Morgan Freeman plays Detective Somerset, a man who’s had enough of the violence in the world he’s decided to retire only to get sucked back in for one more case. He’s perfect for the role and steals every scene that he’s in, playing the complete opposite character as Brad Pitt’s Detective Mills. Maybe opposite is not fare, but an older version of Mills. Someone who was once like Mills but had been beaten down by his job for so long he can no longer take it.
2: Glory (1989)
Picking between Glory and The Shawshank Redemption was a hard decision. I ultimately went with Glory at number 2 because he has less of a role in it than Shawshank. In Glory Morgan Freeman plays Sgt. Maj. John Rawlins, A Civil War soldier in the first all black Volunteer company. It’s one of my favorite movies of all time. It went on to win 3 Oscars including a best actor award for Denzel Washington for his portrayal of Pvt. Trip.
1: The Shawshank Redemption (1994)
Here’s the movie you can’t not watch every time you see it on TV. Morgan Freeman plays Red, Andy Dufresne’s best friend in the Shawshank prison. His subtle performance in this movie is perfect as you can tell there’s something else under his outward appearance of a well-liked tough guy and leader of his crew. He ended up winning the Oscar for best actor for this role.
So there’s my favorite Morgan Freeman movies of all time. Did I miss any? Do you hate my choices? If so then let us know in the comments. Happy Birthday Morgan Freeman, get busy living, or get busy dying.
This year marks the 10th anniversary of YouTube. So let’s dive in and take a look at 10 quick facts about the video-sharing website (according to wikipedia).
2. There are different stories of how the idea for YouTube came about. One story claims that they wanted to share videos of a dinner party at Chen’s apartment and were having trouble doing so. Another story claims Karim wanted to share Janet Jackson’s wardrobe malfunction from the 2004 Super Bowl. So the next time you watch a YouTube video make sure to thank Janet Jackson’s nipples.
3. The early offices for YouTube were above a pizzeria and a Japanese restaurant in San Mateo, California. How luxurious.
4. The first YouTube video was entitled “Me at the zoo” and was uploaded by co-founder Jawed Karim on April 23rd, 2005. You can still watch the video and it currently has almost 20 million views…it’s quite riveting.
5. Over 300 hours of videos are uploaded every minute. That’s a lot of cat videos.
9. YouTube is known for it’s pranks on April Fools which have included every video on the main page being re-directed to Rick Astley’s “Never Gonna Give You Up”, and clicking on a video made the entire page turn upside down. Wow, such ballsy pranksters they are.
10. There are some countries where YouTube is banned. They are, not surprisingly, China, Iran, Pakinstan, and Turkmenistan. Other countries have banned YouTube for a short period. These include Thailand, Australia, Morocco, Turkey, Libya, Bangladesh, Egypt, Russia, Sudan and Afghanistan.
YouTube is such a staple of our culture that it’s hard to imagine when it wasn’t around. It gives a voice to anyone and everyone. So let’s celebrate what youtube has contributed to the world by watching this woman give a massage to an opossum:
