One image starkly depicts the horror of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17. Another reflects a family’s unease — written in their eyes — after the first night of violence in Ferguson, Missouri. More buoyantly, there is Derek Jeter taking the field at Yankee Stadium for the final time in his decorated baseball career.

Film snobs don’t get it. Movies don’t need to be great art to be great.

Flash Gordon, with a memorable soundtrack by Queen, and the Michael Crichton-directed medical thriller Coma were ignored by Oscar voters but (mostly) embraced by critics, respectively garnering 82% and 79% positive reviews as tracked by the website Rotten Tomatoes. Patrick Swayze’s Road House became a cult classic. So did the slithery Anaconda, which has grossed nearly $140 million worldwide since its 1997 release.

The Library treats Saturday afternoon audiences to all four eminently watchable flicks in November. In the Stanley H. Durwood Film Vault, Central Library, 14 W. 10th St.
