Your Grandpa’s Pocket Reviews of the “Classy” Movies He Saw This Year

Gravity
Ryan is a very strange name for a girl, but I like that Mr. George Clooney was actually really alive the whole time.

Frances Ha/Nebraska
I prefer my movies in color these days, thank you very much.

Upstream Color
I have no idea what this was that I just watched.

Her
Not for me.

Before Midnight
Fell asleep halfway through.

Blue is the Warmest Color
I’m not a big foreign movies guy.

Stories We Tell
It’s like I always say, best to keep things to yourself at all costs.

The Great Gatsby
My eyes hurt and I had to stop.

Blue Jasmine
I didn’t like that it kept switching times back and forth. Confusing! Just tell the story Mr. Allen!

American Hustle
As a member of The Greatest Generation, I make it a point to see every movie with American in the title. This has mostly been a disastrous decision (American Pie, American Psycho, Wet Hot American Summer) and I probably need to rethink it.

Spring Breakers
I could not follow this at all.

Patton
I put this on the list every year, because every single year it is the best movie that I watch in that year.

Saving Mr. Banks
Runner-up to Patton for movie of the year. A real home run.

Lee Daniels’ The Butler
Your grandmother made me watch this. 

ma io vedo i tuoi colori veri
che risplendono dentro te
vedo i tuoi colori veri
ed è per questo che ti amo
quindi non avere paura
di mostrarli
I tuoi colori veri
I colori veri sono belli
come un arcobaleno
