Fight Club and Knives Out

Tis the season to stay inside and watch movies. I’ve never been a huge fan of Christmas movies, but I’d love for you to submit your favorites on my Submit a Movie page so I can watch and give some holiday recommendations for my subscribers! For today, however, there are no Christmas films featured; I have a thriller and a murder mystery. The murder mystery takes place in winter, so I’m giving myself a little Christmas credit for that one. Or maybe it’s in the fall. Either way, here they are:

Thriller: Fight Club (1999)

Length: 139 minutes

Rated: R

Obviously, “the first rule about fight club is you don’t talk about fight club.” Seems I’ll have to break that rule. The movie is about exactly what it sounds like: a club where people fight each other. Men gathering to beat each other up with no regulations non-surprisingly turns into something very grim. Things escalate, and the narrator soon finds himself entangled in the mess of the club him and his friend, Tyler, have created. I can’t explain too much of the plot without giving things away, but believe me when I say it’s a wild ride. Also, Brad Pitt. Anyways, here’s the trailer.

Murder Mystery: Knives Out (2019)

Length: 131 minutes

Rated: PG-13

Knives Out follows a rich family with a lot of drama after the patriarch, an esteemed author, is found dead in his study the morning after his 85th birthday party. You have to love a murder mystery with rich people who all want their piece of the inheritance. Everyone is a suspect, and for good reason. This movie is like a game of Clue. It was entertaining, easy to follow, and pretty light for a movie about murder. However, keep in mind that I’m a horror fan when I say that I think it’d be great for most audiences. Here’s the trailer.

Pair one of these with a nice, big bowl of chili (this week’s recipe) and have a fantastic night. If neither of these films sound appealing, click here for the last movies I posted. Thanks for reading, I hope you enjoy!

DAAM. Sounds like a plan.

  1. I really enjoy your blog. Fight Club is great. Here’s a recommendation for a Christmas movie: Joyeux Noel. It’s a beautiful movie, one of my favorites of any genre.
