Special Features Top 3 Picks

Weekend Watchlist – May 21, 2021

Weekend Watchlist – May 21, 2021 – A masterpiece of sci-fi from one of my all time favorites in Dennis Villeneuve’s Arrival, a rare villain role for Tom Cruise in Collateral, and the classic Totoro from the beloved Studio Ghibli.

ww - 5.21.2021

My top 3 picks for this weekend are : 

  1. Arrival
    • Dennis Villeneuve directs an all star cast of Amy Adams and Jeremy Renner in this sci-fi epic. This is the movie that brought Villeneuve to my attention and the man does not miss. Arrival is a stunning work of time and sci-fi elements woven together in perfect fashion. 
  2. Collateral
    • There are many, many movies where Tom Cruise is the protagonist, but Collateral is a refreshing break from normality for this superstar. Vincent is a hitman, out to collect on a target and Cruise brings malice and calculating precision to this role.  
  3. My Neighbor Totoro 
    • Studio Ghibli doesn’t require an introduction, but for those who aren’t aware of the Japanese powerhouse animation studio, My Neighbor Totoro is a classic on par with the likes of Winnie the Pooh. It is a sweet and innocents movie that will delight all ages for years to come.
