"Margin Call" is excellent.

"The Way Way Back" is one of my favorite movies and it's one of the rare movies I've bought to own on Amazon.

"In 1818, high-spirited young Fanny Brawne (Abbie Cornish) finds herself increasingly intrigued by the handsome but aloof poet John Keats (Ben Whishaw), who lives next door to her family friends the Dilkes. After reading a book of his poetry, she finds herself even more drawn to the taciturn Keats."

i fell asleep twice trying to get through that

Vernon
Early Errol Morris documentary intersplices random chatter he captured on film of the genuinely eccentric residents of Vernon, Florida. A few examples? The preacher giving a sermon on the definition of the word "Therefore," and the obsessive turkey hunter who speaks reverentially of the "gobblers" he likes to track down and kill.

I don't know if it's even available anymore. It is such a cheesy western/fantasy. I loved it as a kid, though. Rollerball has been on recently. I forgot how awfully cheesy that movie is. I watched anyway.

The overall movie may be good but all I'm going to see is Owen Wilson. Possibly the worst actor ever.

Bottle rocket is pretty widely known as Wes Andersen's first film.

I find Rushmore infinitely superior.
