So I have several new movies that I am waiting until mid April to see because that will bring me the Criterion release of Tampopo.

Then I will have BJ's Buffet of Fine Eating movie marathon consisting of the following:

Big Night,
Babette's Feast,
Tampopo,
Ratatouille,
Parents, and
Ravenous
.

(Figure Eat Drink Man Woman (Ang Lee) should be in there, too. Either that or Peter Greenaway's The Cook, The Thief, His Wife and Her Lover but I don't own them.

For dessert, you can go out and catch a screening of Raw.

One theme that I have been toying with is 'Siege Films.' You could include:

Zulu
Rio Bravo
Seven Samurai (or any of its variants)
NOTLD

Assault On Precinct 13 (Carpenter version)
Dog Day Afternoon
Dawn of the Dead
Die Hard
The Two Towers
Attack the Block


A nice cross section of drama, western, fantasy, action and horror.

You could also fit The Undertaker and His Pals and / or The Untold Story (a/k/a Human Meat Pork Buns) in there too. I haven't seen The Folks at the Red Wolf Inn or Blood Diner but those two are also about cannibal restaurants.
