Skyfall (2012) is the masterpiece of the James Bond franchise, and that’s saying something considering the 30+ quality movies in the 007 storyline. Daniel Craig delivers the best Bond performance ever, but it is the villain in this movie that truly pushes it above and beyond. Raoul Silva (Javier Bardhem) stands out as the best Bond villain of all time and is truly a character that will make your skin crawl. This is a great movie for the whole family and contains some of the best cinematography you will ever see.
John Wick (2014) is a genre defining take on a classic revenge story. The plot doesn’t stray too far from what you would expect from a redemption/revenge story but it still finds ways to stand out. Beautiful stylized gunfights and brutal hand-to-hand combat take the forefront here. Keanu Reeves performs his best role since The Matrix and this film is more than worth your time. This is a movie that can be rewatched time and time again and it continues to impress.
Braveheart (1995) is one of my personal favorite movies. It is a winner of multiple Academy Awards, and boasts one of the most moving soundtracks in film history. It is one of Mel Gibson’s finest cinematic accomplishments, both as an actor and director. The story is very diverse, ranging from war, drama, and even a heartfelt romance. This is a perfect movie for date night, and I’m sure will be one of your favorites for years to come.
