2014’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is no Citizen Kane, but comic book movie fans flock to it like the four titular turtles flock to pizza. The film provides TMNT fans with the franchise’s silly, joyful tone.
This reboot of the classic ninja team helped spawn further films, new TV series, and a renewed interest in one of the most beloved comic book properties ever. Cowabunga, dude!
2014’s Noah is not your Sunday School story. Darren Aronofsky’s adaptation of the story of the biblical figure Noah is an awe-inspiring epic pulling liberally from texts like the Book of Enoch.
Noah was more akin to a thought-provoking art house film than a straight-forward epic, but that’s the sort of genius you get from Aronofsky, one of the most inventive filmmakers today.
Even if we hadn’t just lost the immortal, suave Charlie Watts, the heartbeat of rock and roll’s longest institution (The Rolling Stones), we’d still be recommending Martin Scorsese’s Shine a Light.
Scorsese spends a lot of the time rightfully focusing on Watts. With the camera fixated on Watts, you witness his unflappability; the way that he can make such raucous playing look so effortless.
Sofia Coppola likely has to deal with nepotism accusations, but her directorial debut The Virgin Suicides established that Francis’ daughter would have made it even without her famous last name.
This haunting adaptation of Jeffrey Eugenides’ novel of the same name taps into the melancholy of childhood, the dreamlike haze of memory, and the mystery that lurks inside suburban homes.
Punk rock music and Roger Corman pictures are some of the core tenets that Den of Geek was founded on, so of course we’re going to recommend 1979’s Rock ‘n’ Roll High School.
After producing dozens of teen rebellion films over the years, Corman finally hit the pinnacle, the ultimate teen rebellion picture, with the cartoon antics ratcheted up more than a few notches.
You can watch all these titles and more on the Plex app this month!
