Henri Mazza's Picks
I’ve played a variety of roles over the course of a 20 year career with the Alamo Drafthouse, from back in the original Colorado Street location, where I launched gonzo shows like Open Screen Night and our Sing-Alongs / Quote-Alongs / Movie Parties, to overseeing the epic outdoor screenings with the Rolling Roadshow, helping out with Fantastic Fest, and just about everything in between.
My taste has always been a little more “pop and party” than some of the other folks on the team, and I logged a few years hosting the Nerd Rap Battle at Fantastic Fest, so of course BODIED has to be on this list.
THE FP is brilliant and weird and one of the most quotable movies ever, and you’ll never look at duck ponds the same way again.
I wish I could go back in time and watch LET THE RIGHT ONE IN for the first time without knowing what kind of movie it was, and I love EXTRA ORDINARY because it kept surprising me and not being the kind of movie I thought it was (and it’s hilarious).
I could go on and on about every movie in this collection, but you should just watch (or re-watch) them all, and we can talk about them next time we’re out at an event.
