The Best Movie You May Not Have Heard Of – The Boondock Saints
I have to admit, I was late to the party when it comes to The Boondock Saints, as I only found it a couple of years ago. How I missed it I still do not know, but what I do know is that it has become one of my favorite movies of all time. It is a mob movie, very violent, and what I would call a “guys” movie, until I caught my receptionist Brenja quoting it one day. Apparently she loved it as much as I did. Willem Dafoe plays one of the funniest characters ever, and as Paul Smecker says, “it just makes me feel like river dancing.”
A Classic Must See Movie – The Usual Suspects
I did not pick The Usual Suspects as one of my poster parodies for the website for nothing. This is another one of my favorite movies of all time. Kaiser Sӧze to me is a cross between Darth Vader and Voldemort. He is a wicked villain like Darth, and you just do not want to talk about him like Voldemort. Great movie you can watch again and again.
A Guilty Pleasure – Mean Girls
I love Tina Fey. She was hilarious on Saturday Night Live, 30 Rock was a great show, and her first movie writing credit was no disappointment. Mean Girls is funny. Period. This movie reaches every generation as I have watched it with my daughter and my mother-in-law and we all enjoyed it the same. Mean Girls inspired my Halloween costume this year as I went as Regina George (I am the Queen Bee). Fun fact about Mean Girls – If you watch it backwards, it is about a girl who becomes so unpopular she moves to Africa.
