Movie List: 33 Movies that are Just Fucking Fantastic (Part 2)

Welcome back — part 2, movies that are fuck­ing awe­some… let’s rock. Keep in mind, this is a con­tin­u­a­tion of the same list, so there is no theme, no rhyme or rea­son, and no exclu­siv­i­ty… right. Here we go.

  1. MV5BMTk3MjYwMjkzOF5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwMTE1NjIxNw@@._V1_SY1000_CR0,0,674,1000_AL_Per­fect Sense (2011); Direct­ed by David Macken­zie; Star­ring Ewan McGreg­gor and Eva Green. Every­one is los­ing their sens­es — lit­er­al­ly. It’s kind of crazy to think about what the world would come to if the pop­u­la­tion slow­ly lost their abil­i­ty to taste, smell, hear, speak, see, and feel…
  2. Gar­den State (2004); Direct­ed by Zach Braff; Star­ring Zach Braff, Peter Sars­gaard, and Natal­ie Port­man. This is pos­si­bly one of the most pre­ten­tious movies ever made (sec­ond, of course, to Tree of Life — no film is as pre­ten­tious as that one, it’s freak­ing impos­si­ble), but damn does it cap­ture a time in my life so per­fect­ly, it hold up over time. I got real­ly into this movie a few years after it came out — so I was about 22–23, and then I didn’t see it for more than a decade. I real­ly didn’t think it would hold up, I fig­ured a mod­ern view­ing would result in my eyes rolling back in their head but I was wrong — it gets bet­ter with time. It doesn’t come off as being near­ly as pre­ten­tious now because it’s so much more mean­ing­ful to me — and shit, col­lege-aged kids are pre­ten­tious as hell. Let me tell ya. LOL, come on, dis­agree with me.
