What Movies Have Chefs Watched Recently?

Chef Napa Valley

Richard Reddington was willing to take a road trip to join James Bond in a movie theater.


Matthew Lightner (Atera)

I saw the “Oz” movie. It was good.

Carla Hall

“Silver Linings Playbook.” I liked it. I go to the early feature on Saturdays at 10.

Jose Garces

James Bond’s “Skyfall”…I thought it was great. They played up M’s role a little too much for my taste, and I don’t know if I was a fan of them playing Bond as a little bit washed up. Other than that, Javier Bardem was a great villain, and I thought it was great.

Clark Frasier + Mark Gaier (Arrows, MC Perkins Cove, MC Medici)

Frasier: I think it was “Life of Pi.” Or “Lincoln.” Maybe it was “Lincoln.” Loved it.

Gaier: Loved it. Daniel Day-Lewis was so good. Unbelievable.

Frasier: It should have won [Best Picture].

Tyler Florence

I think “Skyfall” was the last movie I saw in a theater. Other than that, I don’t really have time to go out with managing restaurants and doing other things. We watch a lot of movies at home, but we watch them on iTunes or we watch them on Netflix.

Dean Fearing (Fearing’s at The Ritz-Carlton, Dallas)

Probably “Zero Dark Thirty” is the last one I saw. It was pretty intense. Also, “Argo” is about as intense as it got for me. You talk about being on the edge of your seat.

Abram Bissell (The NoMad)

I saw “Les Miserables.”…I liked the show, but the movie wasn’t all that great.
