There are a select few “one of a kind” movies left for viewers to find. Especially in Hollywood, where most successful formulas are quickly copied and watered down by a plethora of posers who hope they can make a quick buck. This is particularly true of the horror and comedy genres, where low budget films can make back their money quickly regardless of quality. Despite the vultures, there are still a few films that have a tone that’s all their own. One such film is An American Werewolf in London.
There are few films that make me smile as often as Young Frankenstein does, and I’m always a bit thrilled when I find someone else who loves it too. Those of us “in the know” could potentially spend hours quoting the film back and forth – I’m terribly partial to the “Werewolf?” scene – and there are few truer facts to me than the fact that more people need to love Young Frankenstein.
Overshadowed by other films from its director and year of release, Steven Soderbergh‘s 1999 thriller The Limey is an unfairly forgotten piece of cinematic gold. Starring Terence Stamp as an ex-con known only as “Wilson”, The Limey succeeds as a revenge film while refusing to submit to the traps that most films of its sort fall into.
Harrison Ford, as Indiana Jones, is an archaeologist who goes on a search for the mystical Ark of the Covenant, while outwitting Nazis who compete to obtain the Ark for its fabled supernatural power. Raiders of the Lost Ark is a movie that you need to see before you die.
