According to IMDB’s upcoming movies list, Demolition starring Jake Gyllenhaal comes out this week.  My local theater’s release list seems to disagree with that, so it may be a limited thing.  Regardless, it gives me the opportunity to talk about an actor who has recently become one of my favorites.  He has picked some excellent roles over the past 5 years or so and I’m excited to see what he does from here on. I was close to doing a top 10 list but couldn’t quite find 10 that I enjoy enough to put on here.  So here’s a Top 5 with some honorable mentions:

Top 10 lists will be a list of 10 movies that will be published once a week and will either have to do with a movie coming out that week or just what I want to do at the time. 

In honor of the excellent looking Rocky spin-off, Creed, coming out this week, I’m looking at the best boxing movies.  This list shows that when I do these lists, I try to keep the picks somewhere in between the best overall movies and the ones that entertain me the most.  Because if I just went off my favorites, Rocky IV would be at the top.  And if we are being honest, Rocky IV doesn’t belong at the top of any list.  Well maybe a Top 10 most patriotic movies list.  But not this one.  Does it make it at all? Find out below. Let’s get to it: Ding!
