There’s a unique pain in choosing a top five out of the seemingly endless favorite films I have, as probably everyone on FilmEra can agree to. My passion for cinema experienced a resurgence in 2015 after several years […]
I always have a tough time ranking my top five. I’ve never really put them in a specific order, mostly because they keep shifting back and forth between places. One day my #1 will be […]

Hi, I’m Olwethu Ndaba, and I’m a 20 year old South African literature and film student. For me, trying to write a top five list of favourite films is an incredibly excruciating experience. How does […]
Many film aficionados tend to look at the task of ranking films to be similar to that of pulling teeth: a torturous and painful procedure that goes against their every instinct. I find ranking and […]
Writing is a pleasure. Film gazing is a passion. My interests are widespread, and I never tire of the onslaught of cinema that I thrust upon myself in a constant search for the films that […]
Making this list was borderline painful. I need to include these honorable mentions: 2001: A Space Odyssey Back to the Future Blue Valentine Casablanca Gone Girl Kill Bill Moonlight Whiplash Okay. With that out of […]
Hello, my name is Jenna Kalishman and, like most of my fellow writers, I am extraordinarily indecisive when it comes to selecting my top 5 films. Aside from my indecisiveness, I am a film enthusiast […]
As someone who’s indecisive in pretty much all faculties of life, it should come as no surprise that I had trouble narrowing down my five favorite films. Put simply, it’s an impossible task. So instead, […]

To quote Roger Ebert, “I was born into the film of my life. I don’t remember how it started, but it continues to entertain me.” My name is Paul, and I’m a writer and filmmaker […]

I will introduce my top 5 by saying that this will be formatted like Looper does their YouTube videos. I really like how they break down their top ten lists with major categories then break […]
