It's hard to have seen them all. But out of the ones I have and have seen, I give you my top 10.
I couldn't believe my eyes when I was done with that movie. So gripping. I'm at a point where I rarely get drawn into a movie anymore. Seeing 12 Angry Men for the first time was a marvelous experience and a mind bender on judgement and decisions on things that we cannot confirm. I recommend it to everyone.
"Fish Tank", I was very intrigued about this movie and knew nothing about it when I watched it. Very gripping story. Jarvis throws in a great performance. She might not be that great of a dancer lol but she's gave a hell of a performance as a troubled teen.
Such a beautiful movie. The story is intriguing and somewhat predictable. But the performances are great and the landscape is heavenly. Amazing and gripping movie.
Wes Anderson has a unique directing style. I love the quirkiness of his films. This one got me laughing more than all the others. I must admit that "Moonrise Kingdom" was also very funny and could easily share the fourth spot with "Bottle Rocket" if and when it gets released on Criterion. I would be very surprised if "Moonrise" doesn't end up on my Criterion shelf.
Malkovich Malkovich!! So far this is 2012's best and my favorite release. For long I had been waiting for it to be on blu-ray only to read online that it was being released by Criterion. This movie never gets old. Very original and Charlie Kaufman-esque. I hope Criterion will go and acquire Spike Jonze's followup "Adaptation".
I grew up in the 80s and Mr. Bean had always been one of my original comedy icons. After seeing Playtime, I knew by certainty that this is a character that Mr. Bean was highly based upon. Delightful french movie with minimalistic dialogue. What is funny about this film is that when I put it in my blu-ray player I didn't know what to expect and believed for 10 minutes something was wrong with the audio track. Fooled me!!
This is a BIG movie. Big budget and big story. Big Hollywood productions rarely get the Criterion treatment. But this is an exception. David Fincher is a name that no one associates cheap story telling to. This is something for everyone to see. A marvelous picture! Can't wait for the release of "The Game" in September.
I always wanted to see "The Island of Dr. Moreau" with Val Kilmer and Brando. It looked so horrible that I never really got to it. After getting addicted to the Criterion collection, I read that this is an original Dr. Moreau film. Best impulse purchase ever. Sometimes you just can't go wrong.
Witty, funny and hard to predict. You never know if Grant is a good guy or a bad guy till the last scene of the movie.
Just watch it
