Our Movie Challenge

Partially inspired by one of our favorite bloggers, Netflix Russian Roulette and his movie challenge, we have one we’re gonna try ourselves. The July 6th issue of Entertainment Weekly featured the article “The 50 Best Movies You’ve Never Seen”, and we were intrigued and excited by their picks, and hadn’t seen the majority of them. So, we decided to make them 50 movies we have seen. We went over the list together and briefly talked about each one in our previous podcasts, here and here. If you don’t wanna hear us blab, here’s the list, in its entirety. As we watch each film, we’ll write a review and link them here. We’ll also have a new link at the top of our homepage with the list of films and links to their reviews. We’re fairly certain this’ll take quite a long time, but it’s all about the journey, right?

  2. The Iron Giant, Moon, Rescue Dawn and Layer Cake are some of my favorite movies of all time. I can’t wait to hear your thoughts on this list. Also, Primer and Bubba Hotep are mindfucks of the first degree in completely opposing ways. I dare you to come out of Primer without wanting to punch Einstein in the face. The level at which it bemuses and infuriates is so catastrophic, after watching it, Doc Brown’s head would explode Scanners-style. I look forward to each and every one of these.

  3. Did you ever see 3:10 to Yuma, the newer version with Russell Crowe and Christian Bale? Interesting story, great dialogue and acting. It’s a western and a bit ridiculous at times, but with complex characters and a story you have to pay close attention to; it all made sense to me when the credits rolled and I realized the screenplay was by Elmore Leonard.
