Silver Linings Playbook

Your boyfriend Bradley Cooper and your girlfriend Jennifer Lawrence work through their craziness. And not cute craziness either.

Beautiful Creatures

The thinking teen's supernatural drama.

Django Unchained

When you want violence and bad language, it's Tarantino or bust.

Let the Right One In

Swedish vampires don't screw around. This is a terrifying film — and no one even puts together Ikea furniture in it.

Death at a Funeral

It's a tossup between this and the American remake, but the dryness of the original British version serves the material better.

The Cabin in the Woods

Funny horror! Scary hilarity! All that and more in the titular cabin in the woods!

Being John Malkovich

One of the weirdest movies ever made, but its weirdness is directly proportional to its greatness. Also, it has puppets.

Blue Valentine

Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams are definitely sad and maybe in love. A tough, but incredible watch.

The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel

Top British talent retire to India and hilarity/poignancy ensues.


Cocaine's a hell of a drug.

Shaun of the Dead

Ugh, I'm done with zombies. — You. And yet you WILL watch this movie and you WILL laugh. It's a guarantee.

The mind behind Sideways brought out the dark side of Reese Witherspoon way before she got arrested.

Arguably the greatest film of all time featuring a shirtless Ricardo Montalbán and a bewigged William Shatner.

Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid

Your dad probably loves this movie — and with good reason.

A History of Violence

We are shocked, SHOCKED that Viggo Mortensen could play a weirdo creeper with a past. We are also shocked that David Cronenberg could direct such a thing.

Maggie Smith and Michael Gambon in a dramedy about elderly musicians? Let the bon mots fly!

The Sessions

Helen Hunt and John Hawkes negotiate the world of sex and disability in this affecting 2012 indie drama.

Made in Dagenham

Sally Hawkins is always charming. Dress her up in Biba and she's doubly so. As a 1960's factory worker fighting for equal pay, she's basically the best.


Stunning British documentary on one of the greatest Formula One competitors in history.

Source Code

Duncan Jones directs Jake Gyllenhaal as a sort-of time-traveling marine in this follow-up to 2009's Moon. It's weird and cool — just like Jones' dad, David Bowie.


Lars von Trier (aka The King of Bleak) basically tells us all to calm down. It's just the end of the world.

Attack the Block

Joe Cornish's sci-fi surprise should have gotten more exposure than it did. It's uniquely funny, often terrifying, and has a soundtrack by Basement Jaxx.

Room 237

Stanley Kubrick's The Shining has spawned many weird theories. This documentary will tell you just how many and just how weird they are.
