Good Movies

In no particular order and with no particular ranking, here are the films which have shaped the way I look at filmmaking. They’re all excellent, and they’re all extremely deep and contain meaningfull lessons about life.

If you’re looking for some idea of what an artistic collaboration with Danzer Media looks like, this is where you’ll find it. I’ll be regularly updating the list with new movies that strike me.

The Godfather Parts I and II

Best movie ever made.

Apocalypse Now (Redux)

An excellent examination of insanity, psychosis, and evil.


A modern sleeper masterpiece, Sicario gives a compelling (albeit completely false and misleading) insight into the War on Drugs. The sequel is cool, but not as deep.

The Shining

Best horror movie ever made.

Dr. Strangelove: or, How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb

Best comedy ever made.

2001: A Space Odyssey

Best psyop ever made.

Full Metal Jacket

Best war movie ever made (Yes. I’m serious. You don’t get it.).


Nailed sci-fi horror to the wall.

The Thing (Carpenter’s)

Nailed 60s monster TV shows to the wall.


A subtle, extremely stylish examination of masculinity.

No Country For Old Men

A compelling deconsctruction and satirization of every other story ever told. The one movie that manages to successfully embody the core of postmodern art without inducing migranes in those who watch it.

Starship Troopers

Hilarious and Sad

Blade Runner

Singlehandedly created the cyberpunk genre.


Have you ever wondered “what if Forrest Gump were evil?” This movie answers that question.

Barry Lyndon

One of the most difficult masterpieces to watch all the way through. It’s long, but that’s really the point, and it’s very pretty, and tells a good story.

Saving Private Ryan

It is a classic, and without a doubt one of the best-produced movies of all time, albeit with a strong political slant (notice how many of the Germans appear to be made of dust), and a decent amount of historical innaccuracies. Doesn’t matter. It’s beautiful.
