Best of the Bunch
Best of the Bunch is like our own personal Criterion Collection— a running list of the movies we think are the best! Each month we will induct up to four movies into the collection, with just a couple requirements.
- The film must have been released at least one year prior to induction. We hope this will eliminate some of the recency bias that we experience when watching a great new movie for the first time.
- We have to have seen the film at least twice. There’s no denying that feelings and opinions change over time, but we’re really looking for films that hold up after multiple rewatches.
- Once per year we may induct a “collection” (five or more) of films. In some instances, the sum is greater than the whole, so we may choose to select a franchise, filmography, or other larger body of work in lieu of that month’s usual selections.
