Movie List: 33 Films that are Just Fucking Fantastic (Part 1)

Originally this post was supposed to be about my top ten all time favorite movies… then it became top 25 favorites, then at 30 I realized I wasn’t going to be able to rank and list my absolute favorite movies definitively (we’d be here for a ridiculously long time), thus I arrived at a list of thirty-three (because thirty just didn’t seem right, 31 didn’t look right, and 32 is an even number… yes, I am weird, I know) films that I absolutely love. This list is not exclusive, nor is it in any particular order.

  • Warrior (2011); directed by Gavin O’Conner; Starring Tom Hardy, Joel  Edgerton, and Nick Nolte. I was sucked into this one within the first 3 minutes. And I defy anyone to make it through the last scene without shedding a few tears… heh, you really don’t see that one coming.
  • original7Beasts of the Southern Wild (2012); directed by Benh Zeitlin; Starring Quvenzhané Wallis, Dwight Henry, and Levy Easterly. Moving is a vast understatement when it comes to describing this film – it’s so absurd and cohesive, which is freaking beautiful.
  • Meet Joe Black (1998); Directed by Martin Brest;  Starring Brad Pitt, Anthony Hopkins, Claire Forlani, Marcia Gay Harden, Jeffrey Tambor and Jake Weber. Yes, it’s criminally long, it’s unapologetically romantic and seemingly moves in real time but God, I fucking love it.  I love it so much that I based my actual wedding reception on the party scene at the end. And this movie makes me cry more than any other movie in the world – I mean, like… bawling uncontrollably. And yeah, ok, it doesn’t take a whole lot to make me cry but this is kind of ridiculous. Ahh, so good.
  • Lullaby (2014);  Directed  by Andrew Levitas; Starring Garrett Hedlund, Richard Jenkins, Anne Archer, Jessica Brown Findlay, Amy Adams, Jessica Barden, Terrence Howard and Jennifer Hudson (hell of a cast,  right?!) – this is the best movie that you’ve never seen, with an ensemble of the most famous people in the freaking world.
  • MV5BNTNjN2Y2ZTktNWZhZS00ZDc1LWFjMGEtZjRkOTk3MWY4MTAyXkEyXkFqcGdeQXVyNjY1NjA5Nzk@._V1_SY1000_SX1000_AL_Two Lovers & A Bear (2016); Directed by Kim Nguyen; Starring  Dane DeHaan, Tatiana Maslany, and Gordon Pinsent (as the Bear). This is the best movie ever, go Canada. I may have a slightly unhealthy obsession with this movie.
  • Titanic (1997); Directed by James Cameron; Starring  Leonardo DiCaprio, Kate Winslet, Billy Zane and a million other people. I love it, I’m not ashamed. I was 14 when this came out, it was a lifestyle. Seriously though, this movie is really good. It holds up over time, I watched it last year for the first time in easily a decade and it still works.
