Richard Donner

Donner left so many quality films behind, films that I have watched dozens of times and will watch dozens more. When I want action, a fright, or a laugh, Donner’s got my back.

The History of Pixar

From George Lucas to Steve Jobs, Pixar supporters helped them along their 21-year journey to create their dream.

Starship Troopers

This Paul Verhoeven classic delivers Robocop vibes in space! Watching the violent bug massacre in this anti-fascist satire is just too much fun to worry about political messaging.

Black Horror Cinema

Aside from Blaxploitation movies of the 70s like Blacula and one-offs like Vampire in Brooklyn, black horror has been largely ignored at the box office, and the coveted horror franchise has been elusive.

Coherence

A minimalist sci-fi concept movie that is well-executed and compelling.

Training Day

This movie has a look and feel that is immersive and tense, and despite Fuqua’s continued and celebrated career, Training Day set a bar that I doubt he’ll ever reach again.

Stranger Than Fiction

There is something special about comedians playing dramatic roles, and Will Ferrell in Stranger Than Fiction is truly special.

The MacGuffin

The MacGuffin has fueled the creativity of filmmakers for decades. It has sent heroes running into danger and villains on murderous rampages.

Nightcrawler

A dark, unapologetic descent into the world of violence in journalism.

Attack the Block

An alien invasion movie with a fun, focused POV and a young ensemble cast that avoids that teen movie vibe.
