Critic Keith Phipps once said, "movies are more than just those images that flicker for a couple of distracting hours then disappear...they don’t end when the lights go up."
In that spirit we carry on the conversation with reviews, lists and a podcast.

What do we call this decade? The Tweenies? The Teens? The Onesies? Or simply The Tens? Whatever we call this decade, there is no denying it is coming to a close with this year. By year's end, you'll notice professional critics and bloggers looking back at the decade that was. But, being as how there's been over 2,000 films released this decade, doing a proper retrospective can be a bit daunting. Therefore, it is time for the return of my Best of the Decade series!
Every month I'm going to focus on a particular genre of film and count down the 10 Best of the Decade from that genre. This will, ultimately, lead to a 100 Best list. In addition to this, our podcast, The Movie Lovers, will have a corresponding segment monthly during the Film Faves portion of the show wherein we count down our favorite films.
This month, what with Valentine's Day and all, it seemed fitting to begin this daunting and ludicrous project with Love Stories of the Decade. Be sure to check out …
In our 50th episode of The Movie Lovers (hey, we made it!), Jeff and
Shanna discuss the Academy Awards and a couple of recent releases before
diving into their review of the final How to Train Your Dragon film.
And then they continue their year-long series corresponding with articles from the blog with a countdown of their favorite animated movies of the decade.
