My 4 day weekend allowed me to watch 4 great films.
  1. Spotlight
    "Spotlight" is exciting, frustrating, and terrifying. It's an excellently tense film with great performances from EVERYONE. This would make a great double feature with "Deliver Us from Evil" (2006).
  2. Creed
    Michael B. Jordan is so good. Sylvester Stallone is so good. This was so great from start to finish and I really loved every choice screenwriter/director Ryan Coogler made in this one.
  3. The Night Before
    "The Night Before" was actually funnier to me than the trailers made it seem it would be. I understand there's indifference to Seth Rogen as an actor because he plays similar roles, but I thought he was hilarious in every scene of this movie. Plus Michael Shannon is 💯💯.
  4. The End of the Tour
    This was a free digital download this past weekend on Amazon. I know very little about David Foster Wallace's personal life but was still very moved by the short 5 day experience David Lipsky shared with him. Jesse Eisenberg and Jason Segel were both great and I loved listening to them talk for two hours.
