I enjoy horror and science fiction movies, primarily, but they’re not the only type that I enjoy. For instance, John Schlesinger’s Marathon Man, Sydney Pollack’s Three Days of the Condor, George Roy Hill’s Slap Shot and Robert Altman’s M.A.S.H are four films that I hold in particularly high esteem.
Which is primarily because they’re so different than what I typically view, which gives me a greater appreciation for them, as well as the movies that I watch more often.
Which is why I the last movie that I saw was Boyhood. It’s not something that I would normally seek out, but was rewarding in its own way.
The same thing applies to John Michael McDonagh‘s Calvary. I missed his last film, The Guard, so I want to make sure that I catch his latest.
And what better way than at an Advance Movie Screening!
