If you don’t know by now, I’m a film lover. For me, there is nothing like watching a good film. I get immerse in the story and during that time, life stops, and I enter into this alternate universe of fantasy, drama, comedy, or whatever genre I feel like watching. Thankfully, Danny is my film watching partner, and he loves films as much as I do. And the best part of all is that we both like the same kind of films, which is not what I can say about some of our friends.
Why? Because we like so many different genres. Old Classic Films, BW films, Foreign films, Hollywood Blockbusters, Independent, old slapstick comedies, oh yeah, I love Charles Chaplin and I think “The Kid” is one of his best films, and I could go on.
After Films, computers, the internet, the ipod, gps, I believe Netflix, and its movie streaming, is one the world’s best technological creations. I could watch almost any film I want, whenever I want, from any genre I want. What else can I ask for after a long week of hard work? Movie and ice cream. It’s heaven!
So I thought of starting a weekly blog post with a few movie recommendations for the weekend.
French Films. If the title scares you because you think grainy old and boring films, you’re wrong. French films are some of the best foreign films being made right now, with some of the best performances and actors. I dare you to watch one, and I can assure you will fall in love with them.
The Dinner Game – Each week, Pierre and his friends organize what is called as “un dîner de cons” where everyone brings the dumbest guy they could find as a guest. Directed by Francis Veber, one of my favorite French directors, known for have written the original screenplay of the Birdcage, and the Toy. This is the original version of Dinner for Schmucks.
