Special Features Weekend Watchlist

Weekend Watchlist – December 16, 2022

Weekend Watchlist – 12/16/22 – It’s cold outside and the holidays are drawing closer and that makes me think of snow, cabin fever, and magic.

My top 3 picks for this weekend are : 

  1. The Thing
    • John Carpenter’s The Thing might just be one of my favorite movies of all time. It’s suspenseful and intriguing with the brilliant Kurt Russell and Keith David. Read a little more about my thoughts on The Thing here.
  2. The Shining
    • Stephen King is a master of horror and has been for decades. Stanley Kubrick was a master director for decades as well so pairing these two together could end in greatness or failure. The Shining is one of the greats and it’s not even close.
  3. The Prestige
    • Christopher Nolan brings his unique vision and eye for creative storytelling to the realm of prestidigitation in 1890s London. Don’t go reading up on it, just let the magic unfold on screen.

Dylan created Movies Not Films as a fun project to stay occupied during the start of the global COVID-19 pandemic in 2020. Movies and TV shows had always been a big part of his life, but he never thought to share his thoughts online. Dylan started with a simple movie diary on a spreadsheet and eventually transformed it into with a robust catalog of reviews, suggestions, and ranking lists. Currently living with his now-fianc├ę and two dogs, Dylan has a full time career but still makes time to watch all the latest movies and most of the new TV shows. Movies Not Films boasts a modest subscriber count and releases several new posts per week.
