THE JOE MURPHY SCHOOL OF FILM REQUIRED VIEWING

Alright class, laptops down, phones away. @brynelle stop flirting with that boy and pay attention, this material WILL be on the test. Gahd. Watch these movies and you have a CHANCE of passing this course.
  1. The Impossible
    I saw a trailer for this movie and then went into it semi-interested at best, and holy hell did it blow me away. If you like family drama but also true-story disaster sequences, this is the one for you. If you don't like any of that, this is still the one for you. Watch this movie.
  2. The Lord of the Rings series
    The extended editions, plus all the special features. Leave no stone unturned.
  3. The Adjustment Bureau
    Interesting and underappreciated.
  4. Super 8
    The E.T. of our generation. And the train scene is amazing.
  5. Edge of Tomorrow
    I know what you're thinking. Another action movie where Tom Cruise runs a lot? But it's so much more than that. It's basically Groundhog Day, with aliens. And Emily Blunt is so fit it's intimidating.
  6. A League of Their Own
    Um, a damn classic?
  7. A Series of Unfortunate Events
    Great music.

    A damn classic, great music.
