Some Movies to Watch in 2017


Happy New Year…

It’s been nearly a year since I last posted on here. It’s a shame, really. I am busy, but there are much busier people than myself who find the time to blog. No reason to beat myself up since it’s a New Year and with it comes a new Jay.

I recently made a list of movies for a friend to watch and thought I mine as well share it on here. They’re movies that I enjoy from different countries and different decades. They’re not in any particular order. I should note that this isn’t a list of my favorite movies, though many of them are, but rather a list of movies I think people should see.

If you want to get the full Jay movie watching experience, I suggest brewing up a cuppa’ hot tea instead of microwaving a bag of popcorn, since popcorn gives me headaches. I recommend a tea light on caffeine but not so soothing that you’ll fall asleep. Perhaps a Kukicha (twig tea) or Oolong. Enjoy.

  1. I have not seen most of these but they will now be on my radar! Amarcord is so delightful as is The Philadelphia Story. The Night of the Hunter is unbelievable. The Red Shoes is breathtaking! Lots of good movie watching ahead!
