  • The Gunfighter

    The Gunfighter 1950

    ★★★★½ Watched 09 Oct, 2015

    Gregory Peck is Jimmy Ringo, a famed gunfighter who has his reputation follow him wherever he goes. He doesn't feel like grabbing his gun and starts blasting away all the time, but trouble seems to find him anyway, mostly by folks trying to make their own reputation by engaging him in gunfights.

    Ringo is stuck in this vicious circle of violence and Gregory Peck plays the part of this man beautifully. His run-ins with the local gun toting youngsters when…

    Pillow Talk 1959

    ★★★★½ Watched 08 Oct, 2015

    ★★★★ Watched 12 Aug, 2014

    There is no chance I am able to write an objective review after having seen a Robin Williams film now, but who cares about objectivity at a time like this.

    Minor spoilage included, proceed at your own risk.

    I have consciously avoided What Dreams May Come since its theatrical run,but I felt like this was as good a time as any as the sad plot might prove to be something of a cathartic experience for me. The story of doctor…
