These are the movies that I deem "best," in no particular order (in alphabetical order).
- •Birdman: Or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance) (Iñárritu, 2014)Birdman, like the other movies on this list, is SO GOOD. Edward Norton, Emma Stone, Zach Galafanakis, Naomi Watts, that other girl and MICHAEL KEATON, my gosh, they delivered some of the best performances I've seen. Taking home four Oscars, including Best Writing, Best Cinematography, Best Directing, and Best Picture, Birdman is truly an amazing telling of an amazing story. Go watch it please.
- •The Dark Knight (Nolan, 2008)The Dark Knight is SO good. Batman is way cool and Christopher Nolan is also way cool, so the two together are way way cool cool. Seriously, this is one of the best movies ever. You probably already agree. If you don't, go read some real reviews by people who can describe it better than I can, because I only have 43 more characters left and I would need at least 1,785,288 to properly describe the audio/visual masterpiece that is Nolan's The Dark Knight.
- •Fight Club (Fincher, 1999)Amazing performances by Edward Norton, Brad Pitt, and Helena Bonham Carter, and one of the best plot twists of all time, in my humble opinion, causing the movie to be completely different the second time you watch it. Fight Club will always be one of my favorites, just don't tell anyone I mentioned it.
- •The Fugitive (Davis, 1993)My favorite genre is the thriller, and I think The Fugitive is one of the best thrillers ever. It's absolutely thrilling, which matters when it comes to thrillers. Tommy Lee Jones is a golden flower every time he steps into the screen, and Harrison Ford has never done anything bad ever (trust me).
- •Interstellar (Nolan, 2014)Lots of people didn't like Interstellar, but, fun fact, they are wrong. Interstellar is a great movie. It talks about love, and it takes place in space, which is cool. The movie is visually stunning and was made with many practical effects that add to the great story, which borrows from Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968). Among other reasons, I love Interstellar because it was the film that made me want to write and direct. So it's good. I promise.
- •Moonrise Kingdom (Anderson, 2012)Such an honest movie. Great performances by the kids and Bill Murray (always) and Bruce Willis (most of the time). Edward Norton (man, he's on this list a lot) does a great job and earns this movie the title of one of my favorite Edward Norton movies. The kids have a great connection and it's honestly their honest and raw relationship that the movie honestly does a pretty good job of capturing.
- •Seeking a Friend for the End of the World (Scafaria, 2012)This movie surprised me because I thought it would be okay and it turned out wow pretty good. Steve Carrell is great and this movie succeeded in getting me to see him as someone other than Michael Scott. Keira Knightley was great and brought a lot to the movie, and I'm not just saying that because we have the same birthday. She had such a fun, care-free personality that perfectly contrasted Steve Carrell's character. It was good.
- •Inglorious Basterds (Tarantino, 2009)I'm too tired to say why this is so good right now but it's amazing so I suggest you go watch it thanks for your understanding
