I seldom watch movies these days — “these days” being the last quarter-century — that for me to compile a list of “Best Movies Of Recent Times” would be a hopeless proposition.
However, Breitbart’s John Nolte is a movie buff, and as I generally agree with his opinions about those few movies I have seen, it’s worth pointing to his “Best 53 Movies” lists:
I don’t agree with his choice for #1 — fine movie though it was — but it’s a good list nevertheless.
The only glaring omission I could see (inexplicably, it didn’t even make Nolte’s list of finalists) was 2009’s wonderful Taking Chance, in which Kevin Bacon (finally) gave a really good performance.
Have at it — and if (like me) you haven’t seen many of Nolte’s 53 movies, it should give you a decent reference list to look up on the various streaming channels.
