“The best teen comedy ever. Still relevant to this day. Just watched it with my niece, and she thought they just made the movie.”

“It’s such a cultural reference.”

No Country for Old Men

“No Country was amazing. You should check out The Counselor, another Cormac McCarthy screenplay. His work always leaves me feeling empty in a good way.”

“‘Don’t put it in your pocket, sir. Don’t put it in your pocket. It’s your lucky quarter.’”

The Pianist

“The Pianist is a GREAT MOVIE …”

“Just watched it recently. It felt almost like a post-apocalyptic film during the second half. I wish we could get a post-apocalyptic film like that.”

The Matrix

“The Matrix, 20 years later, and it’s even more applicable now than back then.”

“The Matrix is actually from the late 1990s.”

The Lord of the Rings

“I mean, even if we aren’t counting trilogies, each individual movie is a classic on its own.”

“True, absolutely.”

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

“That movie hit me so hard I still haven’t managed to make myself rewatch it…”

“Then wait until you find out about the original ending. The movie was supposed to be about 10 minutes longer (and sadder).”

Interstellar

Whiplash

“Barbarian is the most original horror movie I’ve seen in a long time. I can’t remember one before it that caught me off guard like that.”

“It was really well done. I started watching it at 9:30 pm and had to turn it off.”

O Brother, Where Art Thou?

“It might be the best movie of the century.”

“Seriously, an absolute masterpiece. Besides the soundtrack, which always gets top praise, you also have the hero’s journey, the magical realism, and the dusty golden light that infuses every shot. It’s quotable from start to finish, with larger-than-life characters that inhabit a world of fear and hope, honesty and treachery, good and evil, life and death.”

Apocalypto

“The movie is flawless and is equally watchable anywhere in the world, given that there’s very little dialogue. I’ve watched it twice this year, and the only thing I think doesn’t hold up so well is the camerawork, but it’s a product of its time.

“Absolutely agree.”

City of God

“City of God is one of the greatest movies ever released, in my opinion. Amazing movie.”

“City of god is one of the best movies ever made.”

Children of Men

“Children of Men is so overlooked it’s a crime.”

“Children of men is far from overlooked. It comes up every single time this topic comes up and regularly ends up on the greatest movie ever list.”

The Prestige

“The prestige is a masterwork.”

“The Prestige, yes!”

Pan’s Labyrinth

“This can’t be said enough. When I tell people my top ten films, I include Pan’s Labyrinth twice.”

“Oh, great choice. This is a fantastic movie.”

Nightcrawler

“Nightcrawler is the ultimate modern iteration of that character/storyline.”

“I can’t watch any other movie with him in it because he was so unnerving in Nightcrawler.”

The Social Network

“Great movie. Agree. And I also think that when you think about the fact that we all remember when everything started to happen with Facebook. Many of us were early adopters, and it was kind of small and then suddenly, well, not so small anymore. I think that’s why I like it – because we lived through it, you know, it’s a recent thing that was so huge and still is.”

“I’m still mad it lost Best Picture.”

Casino Royale

“Great movie and the absolute best Bond reboot. And I loved Goldeneye for what it was, but Casino Royale hits it out of the park.”

“Daniel Craig is on that Sean Connery pantheon of Bonds.”

Shrek

“Shrek, obviously.”

“The first two Shrek movies.”
