Favorite Movies I Can Think Of Right Now

This is not definitive or in any order. Mostly I just remembered them because the previous movie reminded me of the next. I'm not sure where most of these are streaming but check them out if you haven't. You can psychoanalyze me a little based off this list.



Once Upon A Time In Hollywood (2019) - Quentin Tarantino

Brad Pitt, Leo DiCaprio, Margot Robbie, Margaret Qualley

1969 LA. Hippies, Movie Starts, Cults, Hollywood Parties, Washed Up TV Cowboys. I love it.


Chinatown (1974)-Roman Polanski

Jack Nicholson, Faye Dunaway, John Huston

Directed by Roman Polanski Chinatown proves you don't gotta be a good guy to make the best movie of all time. 70's New-Hollywood commenting on its own past. Both cinematically and politically. 


The Other Side Of The Wind (1972/2013)-Orson Welles

John Huston, Peter Bogdanovich, Oja Kodar, Susan Strasburg

Orson Welles last film, left unfinished for 50 years. Tells the story of a Hollywood directors (Huston) birthday party and final day on earth. The movie screened inside the movie is a masterpiece of it's own. This is on Netflix. 


Dirty Harry (1971)-Don Siegel

Clint Eastwood, Andy Robinson, Harry, Guardino, Reni Santori

Scorpio is very clearly the Zodiac Killer. Andy Robinson plays the shit out of that role. This movie kicks ass and is interesting historically. It came out during the murders. Dirty Harry is so good I just keep watching it and have never seen any of the others. Curtis Mayfield has a cameo.


Zodiac (2007)-David Fincher

Jake Gyllenhaal, Mark Ruffalo, Robert Downey Jr., John Carrol Lynch

They made a movie about the Zodiac Killer and it was well done. I'm gonna like it. 


Dr. Strangelove (1964) - Stanley Kubrick

Peter Sellers, George C. Scott, Sterling Hayden, Slim Pickins

This is the best war satire ever made and it's not all that close. Not a bad shot.


Easy Rider (1969)-Dennis Hopper

Dennis Hopper, Peter Fonda, Jack Nicholson, Karen Black, Toni Basil, Luke Askew

I don't really feel like I have to explain this one. They made it for $300,000 and it did $60 million in the box office. 60 million in 1969.


Being There (1979)-Hal Ashby

Peter Sellers, Shirley MacLaine, Melvyn Douglas, Jack Warden

Written by Jerzy Koninski. It's like if Forrest Gump was a good movie. Peter Sellers plays a man with a child's brain who ends up becoming the biggest influence on Washington politics.  


The Grateful Dead Movie (1977)-Jerry Garcia

Jerry Garcia, Bob Weir, Phil Lesh, Bill Kruetzmann, Mickey Hart, Keith & Donna Godchaux

A great show, interviews, trippy ass animation. I've watched this shit countless times.


Head (1968)- Bob Rafelson

The Monkees and a bunch of cameos.

This is nothing like the TV show and people hated it. It's weird as all shit because the band had creative control. Shot at the same time as Easy Rider, there's a scene where Nicholson and Hopper wonder through the background of a shot accidentally.
