Your Friday Five For June 20–24

Every Friday. I will attempt to rank things that have some sort of connection to the news of that week, but I can’t guarantee anything. Want me to rank something? Put it in the responses.

Decades For Elvis

  1. 1950s
  2. 1960s
  3. 1940s
  4. 1970s

He still had some moments in the ’70s, I’ll give him that.

Baz Luhrmann movies

  1. Romeo + Juliet (1996)
  2. Strictly Ballroom (1992)
  3. The Great Gatsby (2013)
  4. Moulin Rouge (2001)
  5. Australia (2008)

Wait … Baz Lurhmann has only made six movies? (Counting Elvis?) Did you realize that he had so few movies?

Barry Seasons

  1. Season 1
  2. Season 3
  3. Season 2

It is worth noting that I am a bit of a Barry skeptic? It certainly has its moments — and it’s a terrific showcase for Bill Hader’s talents both in front of and behind the camera — but I’ll confess that, when it comes to juggling its comedy and its tension, sometimes I find its eyes are a little bigger than its stomach.
