This site loves nothing more than to collect top 10 weird movie lists from directors and critics, but I chickened out of soliciting one from Roger Ebert, until it was too late. Perhaps it was the certain knowledge that he wouldn’t return my calls or e-mails. Perhaps I had read this quote—”Despite the entreaties of . . . → Read More: ROGER EBERT’S (UNAUTHORIZED, CONJECTURAL) TOP 10 WEIRD MOVIES

We’ve now certified over 100 of an eventual 366 movies here, and it’s time to step back, take stock, and make a provisional list of the “Best of the Weird”—and a list of the “Weirdest of the Weird.” We first took a stab at this list about two years ago, and my how things have . . . → Read More: 366WEIRDMOVIES TOP 10 WEIRD MOVIE LIST(S): THE SECOND PASS
We’re such whiners. Last year at this time, we were complaining that 2010 was “two or three weird movies shy of being a great year.” We didn’t know how good we had it back then, frankly. Movies like Black Swan, Inception and even Scott Pilgrim vs. the World all got major theatrical releases, while of . . . → Read More: TOP 10 WEIRD MOVIES OF 2011
