Make the Case: Gabe’s 7 Favorite Birthday Movies

I’ll be turning 39 on the 28th of May ( EDITOR’S NOTE Happy birthday, Gabe, you angel) The chances are good I’m planning to mark my birthday with a trip to the cinema. It’s been a regular routine throughout my life. It all started with going to the first time I saw What About Bob? in 1991 along with my mom. It’s not a lot of fun watchAing a movie on your birthday. A lot of people enjoy it. It’s a tradition that I am looking forward to and is among the very few traditions I’ve continued to do for all of my life. There are a handful of occasions, I’ve watched the same movie for my birthday each throughout the past four decades.

It covers a wide spectrum of cinematic history. there’s always something to talk about concerning a custom that is constant, even when the world around you changes or alters, dies, changes and evolves, whatever it is. The films themselves are quite a distinct beast since 1991.

In examining my films I’ve watched in celebration of my birthday and I’m left with unsettling selections of obvious selections, unexpectedly poor or good movies and random choices because no other was showing, and films I went to with people I knew or with my own. The ritual of my birthday movie was generally a lonely affair when I was in my 20s. This is certainly not the case nowadays, given that I am married, and all.

Happy birthday to me. I’m not certain what films I’ll be watching in the coming year, but when I go through my movies in this month’s Make the Case and comparing my top 7 films that I’ve seen at the theater for the day of my birthday, I’m pretty sure there won’t be a better movie that Super Mario Bros, released on the 28th of May, 1993.

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

Over the course of Memorial Day Weekend, I as a volunteer in a fantasy-science fiction convention located in Maryland. The theater was close to the hotel, and it was easy to get some time to stop drinking bourbon enough time to watch what was on the screen at typically the time of the blockbuster summer season. Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull was highly anticipated as it was Indy’s first film in nearly twenty years. Absolutely, it was one of the films I was most eager to watch during 2008.

It was then that I realized in the same way, and unlike other people who are overly dramatic, like those bizarres from South Park, I had an amazing time watching Kingdom of the Crystal Skull mostly. It’s true that Shia Lebouf isn’t great, for as gentle a way as you can, and some things such as the CGI during the final scene were not as impressive like they do now. In the end, when it matters in my opinion, Kingdom of the Crystal Skull is as fun in its own way as The Last Crusade. Ford is just fantastic in the role of the character of Dr. Jones, and it’s an absolute pleasure to see him reunited along with Marion (Karen Allen). The villains on the show are fun.

The action sequences are generally entertaining, including the so-silly-it’s-impossible-for-me-to-get-mad nuke-the-fridge scene. The film isn’t a masterpiece, but it’s also one that I did not expect to find it. I’ve been to Kingdom of the Crystal Skull quite recently and I’m still having a great moment.

Godzilla: King of the Monsters

It’s easy to satisfy me Guys. Let me release an incredibly fun Godzilla film every year around my birthday. Simple.

Godzilla King of the Monsters has taken its sweet time arriving, taking 5 years between the original 2014 Godzilla and the one that followed. King of the Monsters decided to totally ignore the cast in the first film including Millie Bobby Brown, Vera Farmiga and Kyle Chandler doing their best in some of the most smug humans in the story of the iconic Toho creation. They do, however, make things more interesting, and give us the Legendary Godzilla film that took the full benefit of having to interact with even the most popular Toho Kaiju.

That’s all it is for”King of the Monsters. There are some Godzilla movies feature an ethereal or enjoyable characters roaming about the beasts we were brought to meet. King of the Monsters settles to a film that is at least as enjoyable, with an extremely moving performance from Ken Watanabe as a genuinely emotional apex. This could certainly be better, but it’s at least that they do not distract us from some fantastic fighting kaiju.

Johnny Mnemonic

Johnny Mnemonic was a hit as a birthday present for me due to two main reasons. I’d already watched Die Hard with a Vengeance the previous month, and it had been released on the same day. Casper opened that same weekend, as Johnny Mnemonic. I felt like I was too daring and cool for friendly ghosts, and Christina Ricci.

I’ve definitely watched Casper as well, and when I compare the show to a cyberpunk frightshow featuring Keanu Reeves based on an William Gibson screenplay, I believe I’ve made the right decision for my birthday. It’s equally important to introduce youngsters with Takeshi Kitano as soon as is possible.

Johnny Mnemonic was one of the films which I could not understand the reason why some people believed it was poor. Love movies like Johnny Mnemonic, which benefits of an under-rated Reeves acting performance as well as outstanding suspense and pace, and an incredible ensemble cast is one reason for me to begin writing reviews for films afterward. I had had enough of fighting over the film reviews I had been reading.
