I’ve been pretty deep in the weeds musically the past few weeks. Saw some great films recently, though. Today I was thinking about my Top 90 of the 90’s Spotify playlist and wondering why I never put anything together for movies. So, here it is. My definitive ranking of the top 90 movies of the 90’s. Please do not ask me why The Sandlot is … Continue reading Top 90 Movies Of The 90’s
I finally saw the last movie I was waiting on yesterday, and I’ve adjusted my list accordingly. I saw a lot of 2017 releases, and I’ve decided that instead of doing a top ten, I’ll just rank them all. I hate it when the critics lists come out and half the movies no one has seen because they only played in NY and LA. I’m fortunate to live somewhere that gets most movies, but even I sometimes have to wait until they’re available on Amazon or iTunes to watch them.
First, here’s a quick list of movies I didn’t get to see. I’m not counting A Fantastic Woman, because I’ll be seeing it soon at the Music Box Members screening next month.
Battle Of The Sexes
The Glass Castle
The Killing Of A Sacred Deer
All The Money In The World
The Meyerowitz Stories (New And Collected)
Brawl In Cell Block 99
Most of these are available streaming in some way, but I haven’t had time to view yet. I’m most upset about The Square and The Killing Of A Sacred Deer. I love the work of both directors and I’m sure I will enjoy these movies once I see them.
Now onto my list:
60. Song To Song
Directed by Terence Malick, starring Christian Bale, Ryan Gosling, and Natalie Portman.
Directed by Seth Gordon, starring Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron
58. A Ghost Story
Directed by David Lowery, starring Casey Affleck and Rooney Mara
57. The Little Hours
Directed by Jeff Baena, starring Alison Brie, Aubrey Plaza, Katie Micucci, and Dave Franco
56. The Bad Batch
Directed by Ana Lily Amirpour, starring Suki Waterhouse and Jason Momoa
55. Killing Gunther
Directed by Taran Killam starring Killam, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Colbie Smulders
Directed by Gillian Robespierre, starring Jenny Slate, John Turturro, and Edie Falco
53. Atomic Blonde
Directed by David Lietch, starring Charlize Theron and James McAvoy
52. War For The Planet Of The Apes
Directed by Matt Reeves, starring Andy Serkis and Woody Harrelson
51. Kong: Skull Island
Directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts, starring Tom Hiddleston and Brie Larson
Well, it seems it’s that time of year again. Time for publications to rack up some clicks by posting their top albums/songs/movies of the year so far, all on separate pages of course. Why let them have all the fun?? I like music and movies, too. So here are my top picks in those three categories, ALL ON ONE PAGE! ALBUMS #1 Conor Oberst-Salutations #2 … Continue reading The Mid Point 2017
Earlier today I posted the rankings of the 43 movies I saw that were released in 2016. Included in those 43 were all nine of the films nominated for Best Picture at this weekend’s Academy Awards. I don’t think any of my favorite movies have a shot at winning (as most aren’t even nominated-COME ON! No nomination for “Drive It Like You Stole It” in … Continue reading Follow-up: Oscar Predictions
Seems like I’m later than usual getting to this, but we’re still a few days out from the Oscars so I think I’m ok. Finished watching all the best picture nominees this week and have prepared my rankings of all the films I’ve seen this year. There were a lot of great movies this year, many of them went underseen. Thanks to Netflix and Amazon … Continue reading Finally! Top Films Of 2016
