★★★★★★★★☆☆
Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope (1977)
What is there really to say about this that has never been said before? I don’t pass up the opportunity to see this in 35mm and you never should either. Luckily, this was a surprise choice for those in attendance, but a damned good surprise.

★★★★★★★★★☆
Fight Club (1999)
Whenever I’m asked what my all time favorite movie is, most of the time this is the answer I give. It’s fantastic filmmaking, and one of the first films that ever kind of opened my mind up to how freaking awesome movies can be. I don’t enjoy this film because of the fighting element or because it’s “cool” or even “not cool” to like this movie. I just love it because it is a great film, backed with great performances, writing and music. I never tire of watching Fight Club and doubt I ever will.

Brazil (1985)
A pretty big blindspot as far a lot of people are concerned. I wasn’t so sure, as while Brazil looks really good, I didn’t know if it was quite for me. After having seen it, I’m glad I did, but my initial assessment was correct. I liked this movie, didn’t love it. It is some absolutely stellar filmmaking though, and a lot could be learned from researching this film and how it was made, and I intend to.

Con Air (1997)
One of my go-to revisits whenever I have free time and I just can’t figure out what to watch. When it airs on TV, I’ll stop what I’m doing for at least a few minutes to appreciate the greatness that is the greatest Michael Bay film that Bay never directed. You might hate this movie’s face, but that only means I kinda hate your face too*.

*I don’t really hate your face

★★★★★☆☆☆☆☆
Fire Birds (1990)
If you like the idea of Black Hawk Down, but think that was too good, and if you hated Top Gun because you think slow ass helicopters are way better than fighter jets, then do I have a movie for you! It was nice to have seen an undiscovered (to me) Nicolas Cage “gem”, but there are far more movies to seek out I’m sure.

★★★★★★★☆☆☆
Leaving Las Vegas (1995)
This always seemed like a huge gap in the films that I’ve seen over the years and now that I’ve finally seen it, while good, it’s not anything I’d call a classic. It’s certainly a heartbreaking story, and I didn’t have plans on becoming an alcoholic before this movie, but I certainly won’t now. Elizabeth Shue was great, as great as I had heard.

Vampire’s Kiss (1988)
Classic Cage, classic Cage freak outs. This film is not to be passed up if you’ve got the chance to see it, especially if you never have before.
