For now the best I can do is pair a generic white wine with Finding Nemo because I hear white goes with fish. And because red goes with meat, I think of it as something to go with a manly movie, particularly a boxing film like Raging Bull (for the steak scene, you know?). Or maybe white is lighter, so it goes with a lighter sort of movie, like a romantic comedy, while a deep red goes with a dark drama or thriller? Other than that, I have occasionally thought to drink an Argentine Malbec while watching Argentine films, just as I'd likely pair a French wine with a French film, etc. But it impresses me to no end that someone can come up with an exact brand and year to go with Ratatouille (the Pixar film, not the dish) let alone the documentary American Movie.
While it's common to pair wines with meals and more often now, especially in NYC, popular to pair meals with movies, I haven't heard of a lot of people pairing wines and films. If you have done it, now's your chance to share some ideas. And don't think the concept has to just be applied to classy works of cinema. If you want to go super trashy, it's probably an obvious idea to pick up some MD 20/20 or Night Train whenever Hobo with a Shotgun comes out. But seriously, I'm looking for some real advice and recommendations here. So drop some ideas in a comment down below.
