    Blood Simple


    Y’all need to watch these Coen dudes they might be going places......seriously.

    Private Detective Visser: Gimme a call whenever you wanna cut off my head. I can always crawl around without it.

  • The Silence of the Lambs

    The Silence of the Lambs


    Criterion Collection 4K Restoration 

    Dr. Frederick Chilton: We've tried to study him, of course, but he's much too sophisticated for the standard tests.

    When a person talks about the horror/thriller genre you know about Silence of the Lambs. Even if someone has never seen the movie you know of Anthony Hopkins as Hannibal Lecter. 

    Hannibal Lecter: A census taker once tried to test me. I ate his liver with some fava beans and a nice chianti.

    I’d make the case…

    There Will Be Blood


    Plainview: There's a whole ocean of oil under our feet! No one can get at it except for me!


  • Seven Samurai

    Seven Samurai


    Kambei Shimada: This is the nature of war: By protecting others, you save yourselves. If you only think of yourself, you'll only destroy yourself.

    One of the greatest showcases of storytelling in all of film. It’s epic in scope and length, but also funny and endearing. 

    Shichiroji: Kikuchiyo, what on earth are you doing? 

    Kikuchiyo: I can't kill a lot with one sword!

    Great characters and a great message, along with awesome battles makes this a true masterpiece.
