CineMeal: 'Rope'

CineMeal: 'Rope'

There are movies with food moments and then there are movies where the moments revolve around food. Let’s give thanks Rope is in the latter category.

Directed by Alfred Hitchcock and released in 1948, Rope's action centers on a dinner party thrown by two men who have just committed a murder. The guests include the murdered man's father(!), and the dinner table is a chest containing his corpse(!!).

Killer party, man.

Here now, in the spirit of our annual Oscar Menus, is everything you need to plan your own Rope dinner and a movie party. Sip on the blood of the innocent, strangle a bird, and enjoy a sweet dessert while you still can.

Oscar Menu 2018

Set your holiday table, folks. The Oscars are coming!

As usual, we're here to help you navigate the obstacle course that is The Oscar Menu.

Read on for drinks, desserts and the requisite cheese plate(s). Happy feasting!

CineMeal: 'Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind'

At CineMunch we're all about exploring the similarities between film and food, and what better way than by creating the ultimate dinner-and-a-movie experience? The best CineMeals (you knew that was coming) tap into the essence of a film, sating your immediate hunger while whetting your appetite for the screen magic to come. Puns are encouraged (a la ParmaSean Penn Roasted Broccoli), and a certain amount of bending the rules is expected (cheese before and after the main course? Done and done.)

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, which we're celebrating all week, requires special attention, and we've curated a meal below that complements and elevates the viewing experience. Here's hoping this gets your culinary juices flowing. Let us know in the comments what would be on your Eternal Sunshine menu!
