1. The Big Lebowski (NETFLIX): It's one of the all time classics for a reason, folks. Great dialogue, phenomenal characters and a very entertaining plot. Always worth your time for a rewatch and a must-watch for anyone who wants to call themselves a true movie fan.
2. Stand By Me (NETFLIX): As far as coming-of-age movies goes, this is among the best. River Phoenix (RIP), Corey Feldman, Keifer, chunky Jerry O'Connell and more.YOU WANA SEE A DEAD BODY?
3. Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It (HBO MAX & Theatres): This just dropped and I was lucky enough to go to a screener for it a few weeks ago ahead of our interview with Patrick Wilson. Personally, I would recommend watching in a theater because it amplifies the scare experience.
4. The Harry Potter Franchise (HBO MAX): If you're around my age (28) then these movies probably had a big impact on your childhood. Even if you don't like the full entree, you can always pick ala carte to avoid the movies you don't like.
5. Kung Fu Hustle (HBO MAX): This is one of the funniest foreign movies I have ever seen. Very goofy, good wordplay and super engaging. If you don't mind subtitles, check it out. They probably have an english dub as well, but that's not as good.
6. The Wedding Singer (HBO MAX): This is easily one of the best Adam Sandler movies ever and my personal #3 only behind Uncut Gems and Big Daddy. Like with all Happy Madison, there is great goofiness and tertiary characters. This one has the best chemistry and easiest plot, though.
7. Kung Pow: Enter the Fist (HULU): I must have watched this movie 200000 times on FX growing up, and it only got funnier every time. WHAT DO YOU GET WHEN YOU CROSS AN OWL WITH A BUNGEE CORD……….MY ASS.
8. Silence (HULU): Low key one of Scorsese's best movies that didn't get the eyes it deserved. It's a slow burn, but deeply emotional and worth your time.
9. Step Brothers (PRIME VIDEO): It's Step Brothers, dude.
10: The Wrestler (PRIME VIDEO): I talked about this movie a bit in my video about the best movies coming to streaming this month, but I'll reiterate on how great Rourke is in this movie. there is a lot of blending of the character he was playing and his real life, which made the performance a lot more authentic.
1. Kim's Convenience (Series - NETFLIX): On of the sneaky best sitcoms of the last 5 years IMO. It's a very easy watch with solid humor that most of us can relate to with the exception of some Canadian jargon.
2. Silicon Valley (Series - HBO MAX): I recently rewatched this and forgot how many laugh out loud funny scenes there are. This one in-particular makes me choke laughing every time.
3. Zero Zero Zero (Series - PRIME VIDEO): This is a bit of a slow burn series, but it is great multi-narrative story about a cocaine shipment that takes you from the Mexican cartel, to the mafia in Italy and fixers in New Orleans, Morocco, Senegal and more.
