The imagination and dedication that went into making this continues to influence artists decades later, and show no signs of stopping. It touched our hearts, changed our philosophy, and gave us a new universe of possibilities to explore.

Dave's Movie Hall of Fame: November '17

Hitchcock, Psycho

Apocalypse Now (1979)

No film I’ve experienced lives up to its mythic status on repeat viewings like this film does. Adapting Conrad’s Heart of Darkness and evoking Dante’s Inferno using Vietnam as a backdrop for a surreal spiritual journey. It’s images loaded with meaning that works on a subconscious level so well it feels as though they came from dreams. As powerful today as it ever was, it adheres to no era, but is universal and timeless.

Batman (1989)

House on Haunted Hill

Creepshow (1982)

Author Stephen King and Zombie Godfather George Romero team up to tribute EC Horror Comics with this anthology feature. It’s cartoonish, ghoulish fun.

Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas

Gojira (1954) [Godzilla, King of the Monsters! (1956)]

The original Japanese version wasn’t released in the States until 2004. I grew up with the U.S. edited dub starring Raymond Burr. While the Japanese version is far more meaningful and tragic, both versions are fantastic.

The immensity, power, and destruction of Godzilla is unlike anything captured on film before, and never more artful or emotionally affecting than it is here. They took the impossible and made it feel real.
