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):
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)
