Movie Recommendation of the Week #11

See No Evil, Hear No Evil (1989) This is a very funny movie about a blind man and a deaf man who witness a murder in tandem. Richard Pryor and Gene Wilder star and the two make an excellent comedic pairing. It would be easy for a movie like this to come off as immature and…

Movie Recommend of the Week #10 – ‘The Sting’

“Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid“ starred Paul Newman and Robert Redford and was directed by George Roy Hill.  “The Sting” sees these men teaming up for another movie that is an absolute classic. “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid” is a masterpiece of film and I would highly recommend it as well, the reason…

Movie Recommendation of the Week #9

The premise of Point Blank isn’t anything terribly original. A man’s wife gets kidnapped and now he’s trying to get her back. While the film isn’t wholly inventive, it is executed well. Be aware that this is more of a soft recommendation than usual. Point blank isn’t great or even very memorable, but it is…

Movie Recommendation of the Week #8

By Sam Kench Clue is our movie recommendation for this week. Yes this is a movie based off of the board game Clue. You wouldn’t expect a movie based on a board game to be any good, but this movie is surprisingly fantastic. Perfect Comedy – This is honestly one of the funniest movies I’ve ever seen….

Movie Recommendation of the Week #7

I Saw the Devil Here’s another fantastic Korean film for you. South Korea puts out some of the best movies in the world. VENGEANCE-  I Saw the Devil tells one of the best Revenge stories since Kill Bill. The extent of the revenge is on such a complex scale and it actually evolves into an…

Movie Recommendation of the Week #6

Assault on Precinct 13 For some reason a lot of people seem to think that Halloween was John Carpenter’s first movie. It was actually his 3rd feature length film and it wasn’t even his first great film. Assault on Precinct 13 was John Carpenter’s 2nd feature film and it came out in 1976, two years…

Sam’s Movie Recommendation of the Week #5

By Sam Kench Todays recommendation is a 1982 grindhouse film called “Pieces”. NOW, be aware that my recommendation of this film does not mean that it is good. This movie is not good at all, it’s actually one of the worst movies I’ve ever seen (technically speaking). So why am I suggesting you watch it?…

Sam’s Movie Recommendation of the Week #4

Reasons to watch It’s a giant monster movie that also manages to be a competent drama. The effects are great. There is a mix of CG and practical effects and all looks very good. Quentin Tarantino named this one of his favorite movies since he became a filmmaker. If that isn’t a big enough recommendation…

Sam’s Movie Recommendation of the Week #3

Seven Psychopaths Reason to watch —Great Director Seven Psychopaths was written and directed by Martin McDonagh who has only done two features, but has quickly become one of my favorite directors. —A great sense of humor. Seven Psychopaths is hysterically funny and it defies convetions. — Top Ten Seven Psychopaths made the list of my top…

Sam’s Movie Recommendation of the Week #2

RED STATE Red State is a very dark movie and it was especially surprising coming from writer director Kevin Smith who is known for raunchy comedies like Clerks and Mall Rats, then he comes out with Red State and shocked everybody who saw it. It was the subject of an extreme guerilla marketing campaign and as…

Sam’s Movie Recommendation of the Week #1

The Way of the Gun is a criminally underrated action thriller that is one of my all time favorite movies. I’m not sure what it is that kept this movie from achieving the following that it deserves, but hopefully I can do my part and get a couple new people to check it out. REASONS…
