Beach movies, 2015

As has become tradition, I've photographed all 21 of the movies we watched on DVD/Blu-ray while at the beach.  (We normally catch more films, but we also watched three UFC events while there.)

The list tends toward action, because Kyle and I are the only ones who stay up for every movie.  We also include whenever possible the rituals of watching Steven Seagal lumber through an action film and getting in the cage with Nicolas Cage.

The award for slowest film of the trip goes to Only Lovers Left Alive, which despite the mesmerizing Tilda Swinton was so amazingly slow that we worried we might be witnessing a vampire-oriented remake of The Assassination of Jesse James by please kill me now I can't watch this movie any longer.

The best entry in the group was also the most surprising:  The Voices.  Ryan Reynolds is magnificent in it, and director Marjane Satrapi does such a fine job that we were all hoping someone would soon give her a bigger budget.  Do not look up information about this movie; just buy it, watch it, and be prepared to be amazed.  (If you are squeamish, or if you don't like dark comedies, ignore that advice, and skip it.)

Next year, I hope we watch even more movies!
