The Witch (Amazon Prime) – Amongst all the great, new horror out there emerged something a little bit different. What is described as “a New England Folk-Tale” is certainly much more. The Witch is a slow building horror film that pays off in disturbing and thought-provoking ways. It doesn’t rely on your traditional jump-scares or slasher-gore, instead, The Witch does what a lot of the best new horror is doing– pushing the boundaries of what and how we think about our own reality and also tackling social issues through the narrative. If you have been on the fence about this one, see it now because it’s easily one of the best of 2016. Don’t try and watch it Friday night. It doesn’t come out until Saturday, September 17th.

In Bruges (Netflix)  -This is one of those films you typically hear people speak glowingly about. If you’ve had the time and access to see this and just haven’t pulled the trigger yet, let me just give you this one picture… Brendan Gleeson and Ralph Fiennes dialoguing outside a coffee shop and at the top of a bell tower on whether to kill Gleeson’s character. Need I say more? Okay, I will. I’ve seen most of Colin Farrell’s films, and after thinking about it, I’m pretty confident in saying this is my favorite performance from him. He’s quick-witted, his delivery in his unashamed proclamation of stereotypes is hilarious, and he’s emotionally conflicted in a beautiful way. In Bruges is a wonderful picture of the silver lining of morality among the immoral, and principles among the unprincipled.

Saving Private Ryan (Netflix) – This film single-handedly changed my view of World War II. I was fascinated by the war from a young age, but I didn’t really understand the abject carnage of the conflict until I saw this film. When the warfare starts, it’s relentless and fills every frame. The opening D-Day invasion sequence is a masterpiece of carefully choreographed violence (made to look like chaos) mixed with sensory overload and gripping emotion. It really puts the viewer in the midst of the war. The story itself it wonderfully compelling, with a group of soldiers venturing deep into the theater of battle to find one man – which brings with it all kinds of fascinating thematic elements. This is one of Steven Spielberg’s finest films, so do yourself a favor and see this if you haven’t.
