The Man From U.N.C.L.E.

It’s not easy to reimagine a classic television series. But director Guy Ritchie took a stab at rebooting the popular 1960’s show The Man from U.N.C.L.E. in the 2015 film version, starring Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer. While the film didn’t impress a lot of audiences, a small group of fans fell in love with Ritchie’s clever, respectful reimagining of an iconic television series.

Ingrid Goes West

Everyone loves a good movie about friendship and celebrity culture. The 2017 film Ingrid Goes West barely received any social media buzz, despite the film focusing on social media usage. Ingrid (Aubrey Plaza) follows Instagram influencer Taylor (Elizabeth Olsen). Ingrid is obviously mentally disturbed and decides to move to Los Angeles to become Taylor’s friend. Millennials, this movie is calling your name.

The Nice Guys

Writer and director Shane Black is known for blending incredible action scenes with thoughtful characters, comedy, and wit. That much is true in his 2016 film, The Nice Guys. Starring Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe, the two team up as private eyes to search for a missing girl in 1970s Los Angeles. The film didn’t do well at the box office, but a small group of fans say it’s the best detective movie since the film noir era.

What follows is a funny, violent horror film that is sure to be a cult classic. While the film didn’t perform well at the box office, the small fanbase claims the film is one of the best slasher movies of the decade.
