Matt writes: One of the most praised films on RogerEbert.com this year has been David Lowery's audacious and unforgettable "A Ghost Story," reuniting the director with his "Ain't Them Bodies Saints" stars Rooney Mara and Casey Affleck. Brian Tallerico praised the picture upon his initial viewing of it at Sundance, and programmed it as the closing night selection at this year's Chicago Critics' Film Festival, where it played to a packed house. Tallerico later interviewed Lowery for the site, while Matt Zoller Seitz awarded the film four stars.

Matt writes: You don't have to be a sports fan to enjoy the spectacle and exhilaration of the Super Bowl, and the same is true of sports films. There are endless uplifting pictures charting the triumph of underdogs in various sports, with football being one of the most crowd-pleasing. Roger Ebert gave favorable reviews to several of them, including Warren Beatty and Buck Henry's very funny 1978 comedy, "Heaven Can Wait," Gurinder Chadha's delightful 2002 dramedy, "Bend It Like Beckham" and Peter Berg's 2004 drama, "Friday Night Lights."
