9 Incredible Movies 2023 You Need to Watch at SXSW
You Can’t-Miss These 9 Incredible Movies 2023. You should attend SXSW 2023 if you did not attend the Sundance Film Festival in Utah this year. Never have I seen such a fantastic lineup of films at a film festival. Typically, I peruse the film selections and ask why on earth they have to be so dang gon’ sad.
I am very crazy to see all of these 9 Incredible Movies 2023 that will be shown at SXSW, from Eva Longoria’s directing debut Flamin’ Hot to a Dungeons & Dragons epic. (I won’t be able to see them all, but I intend to do so to the greatest extent possible.)
Here is a List of 9 Incredible Movies 2023 You Should Check Out at SXSW
even if you don’t have the time to sit around and watch them all day, every day for the next week (because let’s face it, that’s not your job)! That’s the appropriate time to thank me.
1,”Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves.”
The cast included Regé-Jean Page, Justice Smith, Chris Pine, Michelle Rodriguez, Hugh Grant, and Chloe Coleman. The heroes of Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves are a charismatic thief and a motley crew of misfit adventurers on a mission to steal back a priceless artifact.
But things quickly go downhill, much like my patience in video games when I repeatedly die. And if Paramount Pictures thought it was worthwhile, it’s definitely worth seeing in the theatre. It lives up to Paramount’s excellent Dora the Explorer film.
I can’t wait to see Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves, a funny and action-packed adventure that faithfully adapts the expansive fantasy world and carefree spirit of the classic roleplaying game for the big screen.
2, ‘Flamin’ Hot
Flamin’ Hot, Eva Longoria’s first foray into directing, tells the true story of Richard Montaez, a janitor at Frito Lay who, drawing inspiration from his Mexican American history and upbringing, invented Flamin’ Hot Cheetos.
Even if I don’t consume Flamin’ Hot Cheetos, I must know their secret to success.
Having made her name with her debut feature, Shiva Baby (which premiered at SXSW 2020), Emma Seligman returns with her second feature, Bottoms. In their senior year of high school, two outcast lesbians form a fight club to gain the attention of the school’s cheerleaders.
The fact that it features Ayo Edebiri, the star of the popular show The Bear on Hulu, sealed the deal for us.
Cora (Megan Stalter, who also played the grating but hilarious assistant Kayla in Hacks) worries that her open relationship is deteriorating. As the broke musician and untidy millennial returns to Portland to win back her girlfriend, she finds that more than just her romantic relationships need fixing.
Since I adored Megan in Hacks, I can’t wait to watch her in Cora Bora. Manny Jacinto (The Good Place) and Margaret Cho (a comedian) also star in the movie.
Ilyas, a Pakistani-American teenager living in Northern California in the mid-1990s, is amid a crisis brought on by his enrollment in a traditional public high school.
Ilyas’ concerns about starting middle school are exacerbated by his parents dragging him away from his beloved Islamic private school. But, it is not until Ilyas comes up with a humorous plot to enroll at his former school again that he understands he must also learn to embrace himself.
Actors Alicia Silverstone (Clueless) and Rizwan Manji (both known for their comedy) also star in the film.
6, Late Bloomers”
Lo uise, a 28-year-old aimless Brooklynite played by Karen Gillan, Margaret Sophie Stein, and one of my all-time favorite actors Jermaine Fowler, breaks her hip after a wild night of foolish behavior.
At physical therapy with individuals twice her age after the fall, she meets Antonina, a grouchy old Polish woman who doesn’t understand English. The truth about aging is brought home to Louise and Antonina when she takes a job caring for the latter.
7, Joy Ride’
A group of misfits bands together for a once-in-a-lifetime trip worldwide in the entertaining and unabashedly raunchy comedy Joy Ride.
Audrey (Ashley Park; Emily in Paris) enlists the aid of her eccentric friends when a business trip to Asia goes awry. These include Lolo (Sherry Cola; Good Trouble), Audrey’s irreverent childhood best friend and hot mess; and J.D. (Jason Ritter; The Hangover).
Kat (Oscar® nominee Stephanie Hsu, Everything Everywhere All at Once), her college friend turned Chinese soap star; and Deadeye (Sabrina Wu), Lolo’s eccentric cousin. A voyage of friendship, belonging, and wild excess, their no-holds-barred epic encounter illuminates the universal truth of knowing and loving oneself.
8, Barbie: A Documentary
Whether you adore or despise Barbie, you will have a tale about her. There is always an explanation for why someone doesn’t have a story, even if they don’t.
Lagueria Davis, the inspiration for the first Black Barbie, reveals her side of the tale in this documentary. When the director’s aunt, 83-year-old Beulah Mae Mitchell, asked, “Why not produce a Barbie that looks like me?” the ball started.
9, Story Ave
If you need to watch one South Bronx story this year, it might be Story Ave. Kadir Grayson, an artistic teenager on the verge of finding and losing himself at the same time, walks away from home after the death of his younger brother. He immerses himself in graffiti art’s murky and perhaps lethal realm to get away.
Kadir (Asante Blackk), who wants to be a part of the ‘Beyond The Lines’ gang, which comprises teenagers with criminal and artistic minds, tries to rob Luis (Luis Guzmán), an older Puerto Rican MTA conductor on the Story Ave subway platform.
Now, in his life, this is the first time Kadir is considering that his artistic gift may be a means to a better life thanks to Luis’s kind offer of the cash he needs.
I’m a lifelong New Yorker who has always admired graffiti and was puzzled at its creators’ ability to attach such significant works of art to buildings. Therefore, I’m looking forward to seeing Luis and Asante in this.
