For those of you into horror movies, you need to go watch Creep. It wasn't a big box office smash, and I don't even know if it was released into theaters. Mark Duplass is fantastic.

I think the reason the film resonated with me so much is that Duplass's character reminded me so much of a handful of people I have known throughout my life (most of them musicians no less). It's hands down one of my favorite horror movies ever made.

Here's the trailer:

I think these three movies are pretty much flawless:

Apocalypse Now
No Country For Old Men
The Proposition

Flight of the Phoenix - has that Johnny Cash song "I've Been Everywhere" at the beginning. Also has severe weather sounds that can put you to sleep, for those that use movies to fall asleep.

Finding Nemo!

The one movie I can watch over again.

Very Aussie seagulls with the whole....."mate, mate, mate" and the crabs with "Go on, git outta heeeeea"

We do actually talk like that.

I really pleased they didn't use the whole "throw a shrimp on the barby"......no one either does it or says that here. It's total bollocks.

But Heartbreak Ridge with Clint Eastwood is my go to movie.

When they had to ad lib the cadence in front of the military dignitaries was hilarious.

Two I saw for the first time back over the holidays were: Dunkirk and "Darkest Hour" W. Churchill played by Gary Oldman. What a genius actor.

Watching Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.
It occurred to me while watching it today, this movie is perfect. The story, characters, music, editing, the direction... all perfect.
I saw this film in theaters when it was released. Loved it.

I watched it again a few years ago. It's about a rotten teenager that lies to his parents, manipulates his friends for his own personal enjoyment, and treats his girlfriend like crap.

How on earth did the Wizard of Oz get wedged into a bunch of killing movies?
