i hope the "in some ways" part is meant to imply this isn't REALLY the only movie in the trilogy you put on the list.

Your inference is correct!

I'm sure there are thousands of term papers written on how Animal House represents the patriarchy or is misogynistic or inspired the "rape culture" of the time.


No, that’s Revenge of the Nerds
Thank you, Eddie Guerrero.

Walter: No, Donny. These men are cowards.

#195. Boogie Nights
https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/d/dc/Boogie_Nights_poster.png
Dir: Paul Thomas Anderson
Genre: Drama
Year: 1997

Boogie Nights is one of the greatest directorial debuts ever and one of the twenty or so best movies period until you realize that it's basically a Goodfellas knock-off. Not that there's anything wrong with that--Goodfellas is one of the coolest movies ever made--but look closely and Scorsese's fingerprints are all over PTA's first feature.

But precisely because of the stylistic influences of Goodfellas, Boogie Nights is incredibly fun. It's by far the most energetic of PTA's movies and the soundtrack is totally killer. And despite being about the porn industry, the sex never feels gratuitous or overused--climaxing (^_~) with the greatest dick reveal of all time.

#194. Traffic
https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/0/0a/Traffic2000Poster.jpg
Dir: Steven Soderbergh
Genre: Drama, Crime
Year: 2000

Traffic is the most honest drug movie of its scale ever made. Nothing is glorified, nothing is pontificated, nothing is fearmongered. It's an appropriately complex, layered movie about a complex, layered problem. That's an extremely rare feat for mainstream Hollywood.

For those who don't know, Traffic essentially follows the various intersecting people involved in the Drug War: the politicians, the cartels, the DEA agents, and the users. My favorite of the stories is easily Benicio del Toro, who rightfully got an Oscar for the role. But, if nothing else, Traffic is worth watching just to see Eric Foreman freebasing coke as he approaches orgasm.

#193. Dark City
https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/9/9c/Dark_City_poster.jpg
Dir: Alex Proyas
Genre: Science Fiction, Neo-noir
Year: 1998

The biggest part about what made me excited to do this list for you all is getting to list relatively unknown and/or criminally underrated films. Nothing would make me happier than for someone to check out one of these movies that they otherwise would have never heard of and love them as much as I do.

Dark City is one of the most underappreciated sci-fi movies in recent history. Bolstered by its incredible atmosphere, it's one of those rare mysteries that you will not be able to figure out until the very end--with a genuinely WHAT THE f*** kind of twist about two-thirds through. Forget Blade Runner, forget all of the steampunk/cyberpunk clones of the early 2000s--go watch Dark City right now if you haven't seen it. And please report back to make me happy :)
