#96: Moon

While I do love movies like Alien and 2001, they lack a certain plausibility-- a quality that Duncan Jones’ first major film, Moon, has in spades. Touching, mysterious, and featuring strong undercurrents of social commentary, this movie about the only man on the moon might just go down in history as a modern sci-fi classic. The ever-watchable Sam Rockwell stars (but I won’t give away too much about the details of his performance, for fear of spoilers), and Kevin Spacey voices his robotic assistant. Although Jones’ other good film (fuck you, Warcraft), Source Code, does not appear on this list, I heartily recommend it as well.



Before his bastardization at the hands of the Hollywood blockbuster machine, Zowie Bowie was one of the most promising indie sci-fi filmmakers in the world.
I've really wanted to see this for a while but haven't been able to procure a copy for myself. Sadly, in my first month or two with the group I actually got a digi of the film from Treet but couldn't get it to work and was too embarrassed to ask for help/admit that I might've wasted the copy with my incompetence.

Perhaps if you had eaten some fish, your brain would be able to process such a simple task of redeeming a digi.
Idk if it was me honestly, I used another one that Tanny (I think it was Tanny anyways) gave me and it worked just fine.

A lot of the time digis expire.  But I bought the film on my Flixster account (along with Source Code and a few others as well).  I'm very open to letting other users use it too.  You can just ask and I'll PM it (I'm only keeping it a secret in case KinoPoisk returns).

Really? That'd be dope, thanks so much! I'll PM you over the weekend probably, since I'd actually love to watch that movie this weekend.

#95: Rain Man

Though I may not always love his movies (remember Hook?), I love Dustin Hoffman, and I think he’s one of the most talented actors of all time. Though this is largely due to The Graduate, my opinion of him was solidified by Rain Man, in which Hoffman plays Tom Cruise’s lovable, unmanageable older brother-- who also happens to be an autistic savant. The comedic and dramatic pairing of these two actors never ceases to amaze me, and the incredibly sophisticated screenplay never lets them down. An intelligent, funny, and often rawly emotional film.



If only Jed had been the cool kind of autistic... then we could take him to Vegas and cash in.

Very good film- I honestly would've expected you to hate it though lol.

I decided that I needed to see a certain few movies before I finalized this list. Of the films I wanted to see, only Nikita and The Lion in Winter remain. Once I've watched 'em, I'll start updating this again.

I'm bored. Gonna start doing this again. Will stop when I eventually get bored with this as well.

#94: A Few Good Men

A Few Good Men is widely remembered for one quote and one quote only. But what people tend to forget is that this movie’s entire script, penned by the great Aaron Sorkin (who would go on to write The West Wing and Jobs), is a masterpiece of courtroom drama. Roger Ebert described it as a movie that “Tells you what it’s going to do, does it, and then tells you what it did,” but I don’t think that’s necessarily a bad thing. It might be procedural, but that’s exactly the aura it’s going for-- its methodical style mirrors its plotting perfectly, and at the same time contrasts with the big, cocky personality of Tom Cruise. In terms of patriotic cheese, it’s no Top Gun, but both films are worth a viewing (albeit for wildly different reasons).



I found this movie in a two-for-one pack with Jerry Maguire. At least there was one good film in the pack...

#93: The Hunt

I like Mads Mikkelsen a lot, and most of my appreciation for him comes from this movie-- The Hunt. Mikkelsen plays a schoolteacher who is falsely accused of molesting a child, leading to a nightmarish web of flimsy evidence and helicopter parenting that destroys his reputation in the community. Though it could have been done as a straightforward satire, The Hunt is far too infuriating to laugh at, and it has an uncanny ability to make the audience feel the exact same emotion the protagonist does-- namely, anger. Mikkelsen, who is often typecast as the villain in other films, is perfect for this role, as he has both the versatility to play a sympathetic lead and the vague appearance of an evil pedophile. And I must say… the final scene of this movie will stick in my head for years to come.



Oh, Mads... I'm sorry, but you really do look like a creep.
