    20,000 Leagues Under the Sea

    ★★★★★

    20,000 Leagues Under the Sea is a great film done by Disney. Captain Nemo had discovered nuclear power in early 1900s. He kept it hidden due to the immature nature of humanity, knowing they would use the power for destructive means. Kirk Douglas plays the American sailor trying to do right and Peter Lorre as the researcher's assistant brings his usual flair. James Mason as Captain Nemo is a presence. Fondly remembered this from when I was a kid and still enjoy it today.

    Magnificent Obsession

    ★★★★★

    Magnificent Obsession is a movie I have watched many times over and over again. The acting is excellent, the storyline is complimentary to a drama offering and the moral is outstanding. The cinematography is breathtaking, the use of Technicolor to paint a deep, deep pallet is mesmerizing. Another wonderful movie starring Rock Hudson and Jane Wyman. Yes, it does seem a bit far fetched at times, but consider that the movie was not just pushed to entertain, but to provide a thought that so many people could stand to be reminded of every single day.

  • Gone Girl

    Gone Girl

    ★★★★★

    Gone Girl is haunting, atmospheric, tense, visually rich, graphic and a character all its own bearing the directors distinct signature. An excellent adaption of Gillian Flynn's novel. I frankly think a feat only David Fincher could manage. Both brilliant and quality in their own right, as complementary companions. Ben Affleck as Nick Dunne brought a likable quality to the role that was perfect for it. Rosamund Pike is a chilling embodiment, she portrays the dark personality and psychology that is Amy Dunne. A finely crafted, suspenseful and deliciously dark mystery.

  • Shadow of a Doubt

    Shadow of a Doubt

    ★★★★★

    Shadow of a Doubt is a visceral and frightening depiction of a mass murderer on the run. Alfred Hitchcock draws out your fear for this small California town family's safety as they attempt to survive Uncle Charlie played by Joseph Cotten, who they do not even know is a serial killer. Alfred Hitchcock uses his signature long panning shots of stairs, doors, streets, as well as close-ups on faces for maximum effectiveness. Alfred Hitchcock simply understands what we are afraid of and exploits it in Shadow of a Doubt for tense encounters between a killer uncle and his astute niece.
