In Episode 53, Doug and Dirty A discuss four really good movies in theaters now: Nightcrawler, Birdman, John Wick, and St. Vincent. They also discuss the comic book movie landscape in the wake of Marvel Studios’ recent announcements. Take a listen!
Director Alejandro González Iñárritu’s latest film, Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance), is a weird, funny, technically inventive picture and a showcase for star, Michael Keaton. However, while the film got a little too weird for me at times, it’s still one of the better films this year.
I compiled a list of films that I want to see for the last third of the year and came up with thirty-six titles. Unfortunately, I just don’t have the time to churn out an article of that size right now—self-publishing your first novel is a time-drain, kids. So instead, I selected thirteen films that I’m most looking forward to from September through December. As I’ve done with all my preview features in the past, I’ll list the titles in current release date order, but the one I’m most excited for rhymes with “winter cellar.”
