Wes Anderson Movie Night

August 1, 2015

It’s Saturday night, and thanks to a thanks to a crazy night last night chaperoning a youth group lock-in (read: not sleeping), I’ll be sticking pretty close to home this evening. While everyone else gets dressed up for dinner and drinks, I’ll be ordering a pizza and slipping into some sweatpants (just kidding. I don’t own sweatpants. I do however, have several pair of themed flannel pajamas…so there’s that).

I’m not a movie person, however, there are some movies that I just love and can’t get enough of. My two favorites in that category would be Dr. Dolittle (the original) and Harvey. I guess I just have something for films made in the mid 1900’s.

I’m venturing away from old classics tonight, though, and moving on to another loved collection of movies: Wes Anderson films. If you have no idea who Wes Anderson is, maybe this list will jog your memory—>

The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014)

FYI- I only included movies that Wes Anderson wrote, produced, and directed. Now the hard choice is to pick one for tonight. I love his style and the newer movies just keep get more and more Wes Andersony, so I’m leaning towards the Grand Budapest. Any way I choose though, I can’t go wrong. If you’re interested in what makes his films so unique (or what ‘Wes Andersony’ actually means), Andy Crump over at Screenrant wrote a great blog post entitled, ‘A beginner’s Guide to Wes Anderson Movies’.

Which movie would you choose to watch? Do you have a favorite Wes Anderson film? I’d love to hear!

Cheers,

Bucky

 

Side note: How fabulous would it be to have a Wes Anderson themed party and have all the guests show up as a character from one of the films? I’ll have to file that away under ‘parties to plan’.
