Gareth’s Picks

The Name of the Rose (1986)

Enjoy Sean Connery’s medieval murder mystery based on the classic Umberto Eco’s novel.  The casting is sublime.

Available on  TUBI



Odd Man Out (1947)

Carol Reed classic with a masterful performance by James Mason.

Available on TUBI and Plex




Craig’s Picks

Lovers and Liars (1979)

Goldie Hawn is in this Italian comedy for some reason. It’s not so much good as it is a think piece on Italian comedy and an opportunity to ask why is Goldie Hawn in this movie? Co-stars Giancarlo Gianinni who, trust me; was a big star in Italy in the 60s and 70s. He was also the go-to guy for dubbing American movies. He was the voice of Jack Torrence for the Shining.

Anyway – Lovers and Liars is weird. 

Available on Tubi 


Kicking and Screaming (1995)

Before he co-wrote the Barbie movie with Greta Gerwig, Noah Baumbach was a director. He’s worked on a lot of stuff including A Marriage Story and Frances Ha (starring Greta). His directorial debut is about a bunch of fragile young man-children who can’t seem to escape being in college despite already graduating. It’s Gen-x fun starring Chris Eigeman and Parker Posey. Oh and Olivia D’abo. Also Eric Stoltz…who also stars in Baumbach’s second film Mr. Jealousy.

Available on Netflix.

Not to be confused with the Will Ferrell soccer comedy vehicle with the same title.
