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
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
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.
