America loves to watch beloved dogs die. From Marley & Me to Where The Red Fern Grows, it seems like we just cannot stop killing man’s best friend on screen in the most heartbreaking ways imaginable. But what about those movies – and hear me out here – in which the dog doesn’t die? What about the ones in which dogs are not passive victims but heroes, winning sports championships and performing feats of great athletic prowess? The five-part cinematic saga of Buddy the canine jock is made up exclusively of those films, and they are conveniently ranked from worst dog sports film to best dog sports film below for your viewing convenience. 5. Air Bud: Spikes Back The worst film in the Air Bud film franchise is also the most unrecognizable; virtually no actors from the original film is present, including Buddy the dog, the humor is lifeless and talking-parrot-based, and the punctuation of the title makes no sense. To top it all off, all of the volleyball stunts are accomplished with trick shots …

Punk is really more of a catch-all genre term than a unified sound; everything from Black Flag to The Clash to Television falls under the umbrella, but you’re unlikely to confuse any of those radically different bands for each other. If anything, punk is defined by an attitude more than any specific sound: it’s defiant, primal, and wholly cathartic. These are 11 of the best films about punk that embody that ethos of liberation through rock n’ roll. Jubilee (1978, Derek Jarman) Derek Jarman was an iconoclast in everything he did; never one to make a conventional film, his work stretches from Blue – a solid blue screen with him providing voiceover for 90 minutes – to The Last of England – an impressionistic vision of the apocalypse with poetic narration in place of a plot or dialogue. Jubilee is decidedly less extreme than those two films, but it’s still far from box-office-friendly. It’s hardly heavy on narrative, and what plot there is is pretty bleak; the story follows Queen Elizabeth I as she time …
As someone with a deep and longstanding passion for crying, I’ve sobbed in a variety of fun and kooky situations over the years. These are the definitive top five times I’ve burst into tears in public places.
These are the definitive five greatest times I’ve been hit in the face at shows – if you read any article this year about a small college student getting his ass kicked over and over again, please make it this one. #5: Elbowed in the nose Artist: All Your Sisters Venue: Non Plus Ultra I’m at a show with Jamie Stewart from Xiu Xiu headlining. The third act of the night, a very rad post-punk/goth rock band called All Your Sisters is playing; I’m two beers in and very much in my element, just buzzed enough to get more confident than I have any right to be. I worm my way into the tiny mosh pit that has formed close to the front, but the second I enter a boy is launched at me like a cannonball from the opposite side of the pit. His elbow swings upwards into my nose and knocks me right back out of the mosh pit. I am reminded of my own mortality. #4: Shouldered in the chin Artist: Perfect Pussy …
