12 Angry Men (1957)


This movie felt like a play with extraordinary actors and a weird sense of the Twilight Zone. I think it's because it's because it's in black and white and I recognize a few actors from the show but I digress...

The film tells the story of a jury of 12 men as they deliberate the murder conviction of an 18 year old kid. Great acting but more importantly, the film asks realistic moral questions that apply as much today as they did in 1957. Great film.

Actually that was a play before it became a movie. Good eye.

If you liked that one check out Glengarry Glen Ross.

It's filmed in a similar way, has a stellar cast, terrific acting and is based on a stage play.

Funny you mention this as this was exactly what I thought. Needed to watch it AGAIN as it had been a while.

Amazing writing, cast and performances by the entire cast. Always thought Pacino knocked it out of the park but after watching it last week, Jack Lemmon steals the show without a doubt.

Thanks for mentioning this...great minds... lol

To Have and Have Not (1944)


Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall have a chemistry that's palatable in this classic. Hard to believe that Lauren Bacall's only 19 in her first role and she knocks it out of the park.

I've heard the line "you know how to whistle, just put your lips together and blow." as a part of pop culture and now I FINALLY know where it came from.

This movie could be a sequel to Casablanca because it's set close to the same place and time. The rest of the cast is great as well but I'm not familiar with the names. Being in black and white somehow makes this film better.

A timeless classic piece of art. Glad I finally saw it and I can't recommend it enough.

Hitchcock 3/5 Hopkins didn't resemble Hitchcock in any way form or fashion beyond belly. Outside of that a pretty good movie.

Belle (2014)

This period drama based on fact traces the life of Dido Elizabeth Belle, a biracial girl born in 1761 to a British admiral father and an African mother. Raised by her great-uncle, Dido finds her place in society despite her mixed ethnicity.

A creative take on the period piece by Amma Asante, which Gugu Mbatha-Raw carries quite well with help from Tom Wilkinson, Emily Watson, and a solid cast. Gets a little formulaic in the final act but refreshing all the same.

Red Dragon (2002)


A prequel to The Silence of the Lambs, I didn't know it existed. Couple the premise with an all-star cast — Anthony Hopkins, Edward Norton, Harvey Keitel, Emily Watson and Philip Seymour Hoffman and it has the makings of a good movie.

I think the bar was set in 1991 with Silence of the Lambs and sometimes movies that come after feel like they're just copying the playbook. This is my only criticism of this movie, just a little predictable.

With the acting talent and the suspenseful storyline (thanks to Thomas Harris), the movie was entertaining and kept my attention. Sometimes that's all that we're really looking for in a movie.

If I'm not mistaken, Red Dragon is a remake of an old Michael Mann movie called Manhunter

Let's just hope nobody is foolish enough to allow him to direct a sequel. Something tells me that would be crap.

Talk about being in the dark on this, you could fill a book with what I don't know duh

The trailer for Manhunter looks like Red Dragon picked up a few scenes shot-for-shot. In other parts it looks like they made some other interesting choices with music and color. I'll have to add this to the list just out of curiosity. Brian Cox as Hannibal has my interest as well.

Thanks for pointing this out. thumbs up!
