After revisiting the best films of 2011 a year ago, Solzy at the Movies is revisiting the rankings for the best films of 2012. These lists have a way of evolving through the years. Some films have a way of growing on you while one may start wondering what they ever saw in another film. As such, a few films have completely dropped out of my list altogether. I might looked at a film like Ted…"The Best Films of 2012: Revisiting the Rankings"

An annual tradition, Solzy at the Movies presents the Solzy Awards for 2022 as a way of honoring the best achievements this year in film. I need to say something specific about my top films list–The Fabelmans is #1 and Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery is #1A. I’ve yet to figure out how to change the numbering on WordPress. While many films fell short of my top 36 features, there are those that came…"The Solzy Awards for 2022: The Best in Film"
The Solzy Awards for Documentaries in 2022 honor the best of the documentary films that were released during the past year. I’m a member of the Critics Choice Association’s Documentary Branch so I’ve had to watch a lot of documentaries this year. This would have run sooner but there were some additional documentaries that I needed to watch before publishing. One of them was a three-part documentary that I put off until I could give…"The Solzy Awards for Documentaries in 2022"
Solzy at Movies takes a look back at the best films of 2011 and updates the rankings after a decade of time has passed. Choosing the best films of the year in early or mid-December sometimes isn’t the best idea. There are times when you really need more time to rank the films. Or in my case, I grew up in Louisville, Ky., so not everything came out before the end of the year. In…"The Best Films of 2011: Revisiting The Rankings"
An annual tradition, Solzy at the Movies presents the Solzy Awards for 2021 as a way of honoring the best achievements this year in film. You might notice some films that you forgot about but that’s only because I did include the first two months of the year.

The Solzy Awards for Documentaries in 2021 honor the best of the documentary films that were released during the past year. These are my awards and so, I don’t play by studio rules when it comes to documentaries and docuseries. If I think a three-part documentary from Peter Jackson is the best documentary of the year, I am going to say so. Because it is! And to be fair, it was initially scheduled for a…"The Solzy Awards for Documentaries in 2021"
Things are slowly coming back to normal for movies but once again, Solzy at the Movies presents the Solzy Awards for 2021…so far. It feels like it’s been forever since Sundance kicked off the traditional start of the new movie year. The festival went with a hybrid version this year with a mix of both online and in-person. In terms of film festivals over all, I’m going to be full honest that this isn’t my…"The Solzy Awards for 2021…So Far"
An annual tradition, Solzy at the Movies presents the Solzy Awards for 2020 as a way of honoring the best achievements this year in film. When it comes to the Solzy Awards, my criteria are usually the same as the Oscars with the traditional 7-day minimum release in Los Angeles and New York. What differs this year is that I am not adding on January and February. Personally, I would prefer that my awards-voting groups…"The Solzy Awards for 2020: The Best in Film"
The Solzy Awards for Documentaries in 2020 honor the best of the documentary films that were released during the past year. Last month, I voted in my second-ever Critic’s Choice Documentary Awards. Some of these awards do match how I voted during the CCDA. However, there were some instances in which my preferred documentary was not a nominee earlier this month. In other instances, some of my categories were not a category up for voting…"The Solzy Awards for Documentaries in 2020"
If it is the Wednesday before Thanksgiving weekend, this means that it is time to present the Solzy Awards for Short Films in 2020. This certainly is not the traditional year for films. I’ll admit right now that I have not watched nor covered anywhere close to the amount of short films like in prior years. Some of this definitely comes down to festivals getting cancelled. While SXSW and Tribeca got cancelled this year, many…"The Solzy Awards for Short Films in 2020"
