This is a ridiculous list because I really didn’t see very many movies at all, but here are 10 I liked:
Stories We Tell (2013)
A wonderful movie with a surprising ending.
Before Midnight (2013)
One of the most realistic husband and wife fights I’ve ever seen on film. Probably too realistic.
Island of Lost Souls (1932)
“Are we not men?!?”
Inventing David Geffen (2012)
Portrait of a fascinating mogul.
Robin Hood (1973)
Do you remember this crazy Disney movie? Half of it was traced from The Jungle Book, it features a country/western/folk soundtrack, and almost everybody speaks with a twang. So weird. Anderson stole a ton from it (including a song) for Fantastic Mr. Fox.
Commando is still the greatest “you kidnapped my daughter and now you’re all going to die” movie, but this one is #2.
Cabin In The Woods (2012)
My wife and I don’t go much for horror movies, but this was great fun.
Behind The Candelabra (2013)
Speaking of horror movies…just kidding. Fond memory of finally getting to watch this while cooped up in a Houston hotel suite with a takeout pizza and our son sleeping in the next room.
A Band Called Death (2013)
A warm doc about music and family. And kick-ass punk rock tunes.
The Last Waltz (1978)
