The Shawshank Redemption

This is the best prison movie ever made. Doesn't seem like something Stephen King would write, but I loved the short story too.

Cool Hand Luke

Strange that my two favorite movies are about men in prison…Paul Newman was such a bad-ass in this movie.

The Royal Tenenbaums

I love almost all of Wes Anderson's movies, but this one is his absolute best. Gene Hackman is hilarious: "I'm not talking about dance lessons. I'm talking about putting a brick through the other guy's windshield."

The Wrestler

This is such a heartbreaking story, and I think it's the best role Mickey Rourke ever delivered. I also really love the song Bruce Springsteen wrote for the soundtrack.

Kung Fu Panda

Jack Black is one of the funniest human beings on the planet—and he loses nothing in cartoon form.
