    Cast Away


    Cast Away epitomizes isolation in film.

    In the first act, our main character – Fed Ex executive Chuck Noland, played masterfully by Tom Hanks – is never alone. He’s with co-workers or family and friends during the busy holiday season, but his work rips him away from the comfort of company and puts him on a plane for a business trip.

    Things go horribly wrong on that flight, and he winds up stranded on an island in the Pacific Ocean.…

    No Country for Old Men


    “If the rule you followed brought you to this, of what use was the rule?”

    No Country For Old Men is sort of a western and sort of not. And it’s sort of a noir and sort of not. It’s difficult to place this offering from the Coen Bros. in a box of one genre. So, let’s just say this: it’s a thrilling masterpiece.

    Each line of dialogue, each shot, each decision is handled with care. It is technically incredible,…

    Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai


    This ain’t no ancient culture here, mister.”
    “Sometimes, it is.”

    Patient, gritty, detailed and real. This a film that rewards a viewer who is paying attention, one that isn’t rushed. And it’s a really interesting piece of filmmaking, accompanied by a really fantastic score and soundtrack. It’s really a western that uses a gangster-mob plot as a vehicle, then it’s meshed with 90s hip-hop culture and soaked with tributes to Japanese film. It’s strange, unique and kicks ass.

    Shoutout to the brief Jamie Hector cameo. And to Uncle Junior’s lawyer, aka Handsome Frank.

  • X-Men



    I was 8 when this movie came out. It was the first DVD I ever owned, and was basically my gateway drug into becoming the comics nerd I am today.

    I’m sure that’s true for a bunch of other millennials too.

    Anyway, it still slaps, and has Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen throwing their fastballs.

    The Batman


    “Vengeance won’t change the past.”

    A dark and epic detective noir, which mixes elements of crime, mob and psychological thriller movies into a compelling film. It’s long, but it might be the most interesting and the most unique Batman film. Aside from a few neat Wayne gadgets, this is a film that largely does without superhero bullshit, and the viewer is better for it. It all feels pretty real, and gritty.

    Robert Pattinson is excellent as the Dark Knight, but…

    Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy


    “Brick, where’d you get a hand grenade?”

    An absolutely absurd movie that shouldn’t work under any circumstance, but is hilarious and captivating in a “holy shit did he just say that?” fashion in every step of the way.

    My only complaint is that we should’ve gotten more of Vince Vaughn’s Wes Mantooth.

    Anyways — I’ve never met anyone who didn’t like this movie.
