Tanner’s Revised Top 25 Favorite Movie of All Time

So, considering the fact that I have finally decided to write the 100 Greatest Movies of All Time… Which is coming soon… I decided to revisit one of my favorite posts of all time: My Favorite Movies of All Time. Here is the thing, opinions change, ideas change, and ultimately my tastes have changed. Some movies have become more prevelent in my mind. Some… Some have fallen off the board altogether. When I originally created my Top 25 list… I completely snubbed a few of my favorite movies due to good ole fashion forgetfulness. As such, movies like Die Hard and Reservoir Dogs have made and rectified the list. So with that said, please enjoy my Top 25 FAVORITE MOVIES OF ALL TIME!

Shaun of the Dead
Kill Bill
The Lion King
Strangers on a Train

Tanner Reviews Deepwater Horizon

deepwater_horizon_filmThis one was certainly a surprise! When I saw that there was going to be a movie about the Deepwater Horizon disaster, I initially groaned. Maybe the world has made me jaded but the first thing that I thought of was that BP paid the right people to make a pro oil message to soften the fact that they annihilated the ecosystem in the Gulf of Mexico, a disaster that is still seeing its effects to this day.

But man was I wrong. Well, okay, the first moment that I saw John Malkovich show up as one of the people representing BP, I had a huge sigh of relief. Thank god they casted the best villain they possibly could for this role. At least I know that BP are the bad guys hear. But all joking aside, going into this thinking that this is going to be a pro oil movie and walking out feeling better about life knowing that I saw an amazing disaster movie about the people who worked on board the boat during the day the leak occurred. This movie certainly was a surprising gem and one that may very walk away with a few Oscar nominations for sound editing and effects. Continue reading “Tanner Reviews Deepwater Horizon”

Tanner Reviews The Hateful Eight

The_Hateful_EightI’m rounding out the rest of my reviews before I come to the end of 2015 and the Best and Worst movies and video games of the previous year. I attempt to round out the 2015 movies with the latest movie to be added to the Quentin Tarantino oeuvre; The Hateful Eight. This was a movie that I have been looking forward to all year. I love me some Tarantino! I frequently watch Pulp Fiction, Kill Bill, and Inglorious Basterds and will also cite them as some of my all time favorite movies. Considering his recent success with Django Unchained and his consistent love letters to the genres of spaghetti westerns, 1970’s Japanese Samurai films, and various exploitation movies… I do believe it is easy to say that everyone was waiting in anticipation to see the Tarantino’s eighth movie.

Tragically speaking, I do not think the product of The Hateful Eight is going to live up to our expectations. That isn’t to say that the movie is bad. The movie is decent and another Tarantino western, which is never a terrible thing. But all things considered, The Hateful Eight will forever be listed as one of the more forgotten of Tarantino’s movies.  Continue reading “Tanner Reviews The Hateful Eight”
