Educating Rita 9/15/20
The movie has a lousy synthesized soundtrack, and the cinematography looks like it was filmed on a video camera, but I do like the two main characters played by Michael Caine and Julie Walters.
Down by Law 9/11/20
Many of his movies seem to be slice of life stories (not even the most exciting slice) that may seem boring to most movie audiences.
All the President's Men 9/10/20
A good companion documentary to watch in conjunction with this movie would be the Discovery Channel's "Watergate" a multi-episode film that is available on You Tube.
The Thin Blue Line 9/09/20
He shows how the police likely targeted Adams because he was the right age for a death sentence, while Harris is still a juvenile; how Grigson based his testimony on minimal interaction with Adams; and how most of the evidence that convicted Adams came directly from Harris mouth.
Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels 9/08/20
The first sign of trouble comes when they pool their life savings for a high-stakes poker game organized by Hatchet Harry (a mid level organizer of illegal gambling and operator of porn shops.) Harry cheats, the group looses all of their money and then some, and Harry demands that they hand over the Eddy's fathers bar in place of payment.
The Shawshank Redemption 9/05/20
What I did like was the fact that a movie that took its time to develop characters, and allowed the story to unfold from Reds (Morgan Freemans character) perspective instead of Andys own.
The Player 9/02/20
If you devoted a movie to explaining what makes a good movie and then demonstrating what that good movie might look like, you get the "Player".
