Captain America Blogathon

Andy over at Fandango Groovers is at it again with a new blogathon. To celebrate the upcoming release of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Andy orchestrated this blogathon. The details are quite simple actually:
I have just see an extended trailer for Captain America: The Winter Soldier. In it we see Steve Rogers make a note in a pocket note book. A list of things he missed out on in the time he was frozen that people have recommended he should catch up on. Towards the bottom of the list there are two movies Rocky and Rocky II. This got me thinking, what ten movies would you recommend a person who had been frozen between 1943 and 2011.
Considering I've been rather absent from the blog, I decided to chip in my two cents. My choices are separated by two categories: A Changing America and A Darker America. My choices also start after the jump.


The Best Years of Our Lives (1946, Wyler)
The Graduate (1967, Nichols)
Do the Right Thing (1989, Lee)
Milk (2008, Van Sant)
The Social Network (2010, Fincher)


Ace in the Hole (1951, Wilder)
On the Waterfront (1954, Kazan)
Vertigo (1958, Hitchcock)
Network (1976, Lumet)
Mystic River (2003, Eastwood)
Well, I certainly think that's a good lineup of movies for someone who spent seventy-eight years frozen to watch. What do you think?

  1. Great list! I love how I'm seeing all of these important films picked for Cap, where as I just snarked my way through my own list. lol


Comments are appreciated. More so if they are appropriate.
