Chef (2014)

Starring: Jon Favreau, Scarlett Johansson, Sofia Vergara, John Leguizamo, Dustin Hoffman, Robert Downey Jr.

Where to Watch: Netflix

Synopsis: Favreau plays Carl Casper the head chef at popular LA eatery Gauloise. After Casper gets a bad review from a prestigious food critic that results in a physical altercation, he’s fired from the restaurant. The firing serves as a catalyst for self-discovery and redemption for Casper who heads to Miami, revives a decrepit food truck and starts travelling the country serving Cuban food with his former sous-chef and his pre-teen son who documents the entire adventure.

Is the film Oscar worthy material? No. But it will make you feel good, you will laugh, and you WILL get hungry. The cast is stacked, and the food imagery alone will have you reaching into your fridge hallway through.

Our Black Rabbit Pairing Pick: Garlic Breath

Arrival (2016)

Image via: IMDB

Starring: Amy Adams, Jeremy Renner, Forrest Whitaker

Where to watch: Prime Video

Synopsis: 12 massive extra-terrestrial space craft’s descend onto Earth. All space crafts are scattered around the globe but in Montana, the United States Army enlists the help of linguist Louise Banks (Adams) to help discover how to communicate with the extraterrestrial aliens before their presence and tensions lead to war.

Arrival scored a bunch of nominations during the 2017 awards circuit including Best Picture, Best Director and Best Cinematography at the Oscars, with Adams receiving a Best Actress nom for the 2017 Golden Globes. A refreshing take on the not always but often gimmicky sci-fi genre, the heady, ominous tone consistent throughout the entire film will have you glued to your seat.

Our Black Rabbit Pairing Pick: Miracle Alien Cookies (because why not)

Knives Out (2019)

Knives Out

Starring: (All of Hollywood) Daniel Craig, Chris Evans, Ana de Armas, Toni Colette, Christopher Plumber

Where to watch: Prime Video

Synopsis: Detective Benoit Blanc (Craig) is hired to investigate the murder of Harlan Thrombey, the patriarch of the dysfunctional and scheming Thrombey family. A classic whodunnit, there’s scandal, murder, money and deceit – add a little BR to the mix and you’ll be trying to figure out who did it until the very end.

From start to finish Knives Out is thoroughly entertaining, the type of movie you don’t want to end. Ana de Armas is the one to watch here, relatively unknown when the movie was first released, she captivates and dominates even when she’s not on screen – which is saying a lot with an ensemble cast of this calibre.

Our Black Rabbit Pairing Pick: Pink Death

Kiss Kiss Bang Bang (2005)

Kiss Kiss Bang Bang

Starring: Robert Downey Jr., Val Kilmer, Michelle Monaghan

Where to watch: Prime Video

Synopsis: When a stakeout gone wrong turns into being framed for murder, a thief (Downey Jr.) a big time private investigator (Kilmer) and a struggling actress (Monaghan) work together to figure out who’s behind a series of criminal activity that has the trio right in the centre of it all.

Downey Jr. and Kilmer’s chemistry on screen is why you should watch Kiss Kiss Bang Bang. Kilmer is particularly exceptional but the material as a whole is sharp, smart and despite all the death and murder really really really funny.

Our Black Rabbit Pairing Pick: Gummy Buns

Soul (2020)

Image via: IMDB

Starring: Jamie Foxx, Tina Fey

Where to watch: Disney+ /Amazon Prime

Synopsis: Soul follows Joe (Foxx) a middle school music teacher by day and aspiring jazz artist by night. On the brink of landing his first big break as a musician, a fluke accident see Joe’s body separated from his soul and on the way to the “Great Beyond.” After a detour takes Joe to the “Great Before” he befriends 22 (Fey), an unborn soul, and together they work to get Joe’s soul back to his body (and his big break) on earth.

Soul’s plot is nothing we haven’t seen before and is a classic Disney formula in where a tragedy leads to adventure, unexpected friendship and self-discovery. Unlike other Disney movies however, the animation makes it feel like one looooooooooong psychedelic trip with a 1 hour and 40 minute run time. The animators were definitely hopped up on something (we’d love to know what exactly) which is why Soul is a seriously fun watch with or without a little bud.

Our Black Rabbit Pairing Pick: Cali Mist
