1. The Patriot - (Ranking): AIM SMALL, MISS SMALL. This was one of the movies I highlighted in my blog about movies coming to Netflix for a reason. It's a childhood favorite that has great action, a solid cast and a great "america" feeling to it.
2. Platoon - (Ranking): From a glorified war movie to an anti-war one, Platoon is one of the best war movies ever made. LCB interviewee Oliver Stone SNAPPED on this one and it is a must watch for fans of good movies.
3. Enter the Dragon - (Ranking): If you don't think this is the best martial arts movie of all time, this is probably in your top 5. It has great fights, an easy plot and some of the all time Bruce Lee moments.
4. Monty Python and the Holy Grail - (Ranking): One of my all time favorite comedies ever made and a movie that holds up incredibly well over time. Infinitely quotable and extremely funny.
5. Naruto - (Show): As an anime fan, this was a show that has been on my watch list for a long time. I just wrapped up on season 1 and it is a great time. So much so, that it made me stop my binge of COD and go back to a re-play of the Ghost of Tsushima campaign.
2. Up in the Air - (Ranking): Dramedy isn't for everyone, but for those of you that like it, you will love this movie. One of my favorite Clooney roles and I think one of the earliest that I ever saw Anna Kendrick in.
4. Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory - (Ranking): One of the greatest movies I've ever seen. You might be thinking thats a little extreme, but in the meta context of movies, it really is outstanding.
6. Galveston - (N/A): Gonna have to add this to the database. Anyway, this movie didn't meet my extremely high expectations ('Leave No Trace' was the last Ben Foster movie I had seen before this and it was one of my favorite movies of the decade, and I thought this was gonna have a similar vibe), but it is still a solid movie that will get your blood pumping.
7. The Hurricane - (Ranking): We're coming back to Denzel for another round and for good reason. He may have gotten the nod for best actor in this movie, but I feel like it kind of gets lost in the shuffle of his filmography for most people. If you're a fan of boxing movies, biopics, or just good movies in general, give it a watch.
9. Big Little Lies - (Show): I finally tuned into this show and I'll admit, the hype is real. Definitely not for everyone, but fans of "HBO-ish" dramas will enjoy.
10. Silicon Valley - (Show): I recently restarted this show and honestly forgot how great it is. The early seasons fucking crush, and I honestly forgot how great the characters all were.
1. Mars Attacks! - (Ranking): We recently reviewed this movie on LCB because none of us had seen it in a while, and I had totally forgotten how big the cast was. It is freaky Tim Burtonisms at its finest and a funny rewatch.
4. Crawl - (Ranking): I actually went to a screening of this movie and was the only person in a 100+ seat theater. I assumed it would be bad, but I was very pleasantly surprised! We interviewed Barry Pepper for the movie and both he and Kaya Scodelario were amazing in it. Great suspense, good effects and a quick/easy watch.
5. Letterkenny - (Show): I was late on this show, but it is just as good as everyone insists it is.
1. The Prestige - (Ranking): This Christopher Nolan movie sort of gets lost in the shuffle of his work. It's a fantastic watch and has no right being as entertaining as it is considering it's about magicians.
3. Johnny Mnemonic - (N/a): Gotta get this on the site too. Let me be outright, this is not a great movie. But I think the bare bones story is very interesting and you can see a lot of this movie's influence in later sci-fi movies. Even one of Keanu's later movies, 'The Matrix'.
5. Community - (Show): We recently interviewed the Russo Brothers (Interview dropping this coming Monday), and this is their baby. Not only is it funny and very easy to watch, but you can see sort of the bones of their humor that helped make the MCU what it is today.
3. The Greatest Showman - (Ranking): I don't like this movie. I don't like it at all. It's a musical that glorifies a guy who bought a slave and knocked her teeth out so that people would believe she was the nanny of George Washington. That said, people seem to love it and the music.
4. The Real Right Stuff - (N/a): Space documentaries always tickle my fancy, and this one gives you a cool, behind-the-scenes look at the first astronauts.
5. Wandavision - (Show): Today's episode ended on one of the wilder notes I can remember from Marvel. This show is freaky and out of type for Marvel which makes me love it.
