Quarantine Staff Picks: Part 19

by The MovieBabble Staff
Part 19

Here at MovieBabble, we like to watch movies, obviously. However, the Coronavirus has created a sudden drop off in the number of new movies for us to watch. But we will not be stopped, and we’ve turned to the many decades of cinema preceding us for our entertainment. Some of us have gotten into familiar favorites, others have chosen to dive headfirst into the artsiest of artsy movies, and the rest of us are somewhere in between. For the duration of this crisis, we will be keeping you in the know about these quality gems through our Quarantine Staff Picks. So, without further ado, here are some of the movies we’d recommend for your viewing pleasure this week.

The Lighthouse (2019)

Anna Campion: I’m not actually a huge fan of this movie, but I have a brand new appreciation for it in quarantine. I get how crazy it gets. (Available to stream on Prime Video.)

Top Secret! (1984)

Nick Kush: The forgotten spoof classic from the Zucker Brothers, Top Secret! never fails to have me fall on the floor with laughter. Seriously, the little German joke may be one of God’s greatest gifts to Earth. Although Val Kilmer would go on to star in many famous movies after this one (his first-ever screen appearance), the singing spy Nick Rivers holds a special place in my heart as an iconic spoof movie character. (Available to stream on CBS All Access.)

Under the Skin (2013)

Brennan Dubé: Unsettling to a point, this film is truly daring and its ability to evoke a sense of fear and wonder is truly present. Also, the score absolutely bangs. Truly a different kind of science fiction movie that I can’t say I’ve ever seen before. (Available to stream on Showtime.)

Revolver (2005)

Chris van Dijk: After 2000’s Snatch, which is one of my favorite films, Guy Ritchie mostly made one lackluster film after another — his Disney adaptation of Aladdin might be his low point. But I’ve always had a genuine soft spot for Revolver, a ridiculously complicated, highly pretentious crime film that isn’t without Guy Ritchie’s trademark black comedy. (Available to stream on Pluto TV.)

The Seventh Seal (1957)

Collin Willis: My first soirée with Ingmar Bergman and it was a doozy. It’s a very clever examination of modern attitudes (or at least modern at the time) around the inevitability of death and Bergman’s own personal reconciliation with faith and indoctrination. It’s no King Arthur: Legend of the Swordbut it’s a damn good film about the Middle Ages. (Available to stream on HBO Max and the Criterion Channel.)
