A Star is BornIt is that time of year again. It's Oscar nomination day. The day when conspiracy theorists come out of the woodwork with the final and definitive proof that Hollywood is being run by lizard people who faked the moon landing.

Post-apocalypse thrillersEver since images of Fritz Lang's expressionistic epic Metropolis flickered on a wall somewhere in Germany back in 1927, Hollywood has been enamored with visions of what may become of our society in the face of extinction and mass dehumanizaton.

Following is a list of our favorite apocalyptic nightmares in no particular order. Your favorite didn't make the list? Let us know about it in the comments section

How to Survive a Zombie Attack
Or
The Top 10 Zombie Movies You Should Be Watching Instead of Working

Best Zombie MoviesI consider myself a very orderly and organized person and, as a result, I find that very few things in this life frighten me.  I have been like that (you know, calm and prepared) for most of my adult life; however, no amount of preparation could ever quell my fear of zombies.  Yes, zombies.  Grrr.  Even the sheer mention of that foul creature makes me shiver and, as a result, a little angry because of its illogical nature.  Is it irrational?  Totally, but most fears are.

Don't Look NowFrom Hitchock to Fincher, and Lang to Nolan, Hollywood has been hitting the psychological thriller genre early and often throughout the years.

And why not? After all, It's been one of the most consistent genres for providing unexpected chills and pleasantly fiendish little brain teasers sure to challenge even the most seasoned movie-goers. So it's no wonder Hollywood has found a way to capitalize on the warped and twisted minds of the best filmmakers the industry has to offer.

Following is our list of the best psychological thrillers of all time (in no particular order). Oh, and if your favorite doesn't make the list, let us know about it in the discussion threads at the end of the article. Who knows, we may decide to include it.

The Big Easy

New Orleans is a unique city rich in alluring charm and old-world character, so it should be no surprise that The Crescent City has been the setting for many of Hollywood's best films in history.

Following is a list of the best movies set in New Orleans. Some on the list feature the city more than others, but to be considered, new Orleans must be central to the film's plot, be contained in the movie's title, or must be prominently displayed in the film's cinematography... or whatever other random reason we want to consider.

Bad Times at the El RoyaleWhile this week certainly offers up a much more robust selection of titles coming to blu-ray and/or 4K Ultra HD than we had last week on Christmas Day, it is still a sub-par slate with only three new titles making their debuts on home video. That's to be expected at holiday time, however.

\"Best

From Leone to Ford, the western genre has been a veritable playground for filmmakers displaying their craft in tales of Old West morality and gunslinger justice.

While deciding which particular elements make a western movie truly great is best left up to healthy discourse and late night sports bar discussions, what can\'t be debated are the effects the classic spaghetti westerns and even the modern-day revival westerns have had on movie watchers throughout the years.

Below is our list of the best and greatest western movies of all time. While many of the classic choices can be found on the list, you\'re likely to run across a few that don\'t often appear in typical discussions of best western movies. In compiling our list of best western movies, we considered many factors including longevity, critical acclaim, and popular fan appeal among well-seasoned western movie lovers. in other words, it won\'t be just a long list of John Wayne movies!

If you don\'t find your favorite, be sure to let others know about it in the comments section at the end of the list. Who knows, it may eventually get added.

Aquaman

Crying GameNo movie seems to stir up contentious debate faster than one with a trick ending the viewer didn't see coming (unless it's one of those ambiguous "make up your own ending" type movies.) I suppose we all like to think we can't be had or that we're seasoned movie veterans who've seen it all. Regardless, Hollywood still manages to get us from time to time, and we've listed them below.

Some are better than others, and many on one person's "best" list will fall squarely at the top of someone else's "worst" list.
