A great man (or at least a very old man) once said that nothing in this world is certain except for death and taxes. I’d like to add one thing to that: the absolute certainty that come December, people will be talking about a grip of movies you’ve never heard before. For most of the year, all of the attention is given to the movies with the brightest signs, ones that likely were adapted from a comic book. But that changes once the cold rolls in and award seasons ramps up—and all of the sudden, no one will shut up about some movie called Toni Erdmann.
So what if a certain group of pop culture lovers put together a guide for all of the movies you know zilch about, but will hear about repeatedly during awards season? How would that make you feel? Would you be down to peruse it, with the comfort that said perusal will at the very least keep you in the conversation with the film snobs in your circle who TYPE FILM TITLES LIKE THIS on Twitter? We thought you would. Hell, you might actually find something you like in here.
