My Criterion Collection Dream Movies!

I always imagined if I was in charge of selecting the movies that go on the Criterion Collection what movies I would put on there. So here are five movies that I would pick:

To Woo Foo Thanks for everything, Julie Newmar (1995):

Directed by Beeban Kidron and starring Wesley Snipes, Patrick Swayze and John Leguizamo. This is one of my favorite movies and I actually remember going to the theatre to see it. This is the kind of movie I tend to watch when I am in a weird mood and want to watch a movie to change my mood.

Fun Fact about this movie: Gary Oldman was offered one of the lead roles but at the time he did not want to do another role that he had to do a long process of makeup.

Coming to America (1988)directed by John Landis. Starring Eddie Murphy, Arsenio Hall, James Earl Jones and Shari Headley. The first time I watched this movie was on TNT and they were having some kind of marathon where it was shown for 24 hours straight. Out of those 24 hours I think I watch it 4 times just to absorb all of the humor and the different characters that Eddie Murphy and Arsenio Hall played in the movie.

Fun Fact about this movie: This movie was nominated for two Oscars. One for best Makeup- Rick Baker and the other for Best Costume- Deborah Nadoolman

Joe’s Apartment (1996):

directed by Jerry O’Connell and Megan Ward. This is the first MTV movie I remember being heavily promoted on the channel. Plus it has a bunch of cockroaches as the lead in a movie and how many times can you say you watched a movie about Cockroaches in a comedy?

Fun fact about this movie: The concept of making this movie was from a movie short (1994) that was shown during the commercial breaks on MTV.

Elvis (1979) directed by John Carpenter:

Starring Kurt Russell, Season Hubley and Shelly Winters. I have watched a lot of movies about Elvis and his journey to fame. This is one my favorite interpretation of his life.

Fun Fact about this movie: Bing Russell (who’s son is Kurt Russell) played Veron (who is Elvis’s father)

  1. How Many are we choosing? 4 movies?

    I’d go.
    The Ninth Configuration
    Easy Rider
    Things To Do In Denver (When You’re Dead)
    The Wicker Man.

    That’d do me or perhaps I’d Add Ginger Snaps or Dog Soldiers if we were doing five
