Starring Henry Fonda, Anthony Quinn, Richard Widmark, Dorothy Malone, Dolores Michaels
Fantastic western with thoughtful, complex characters and indelible performances especially from Henry Fonda and Anthony Quinn. They play wandering vigilantes come to clean up the bereaved town of Warlock, but once the job is done, they find the locals growing resentful of their authority.
Starring Bill Murray, Andie MacDowell, Chris Elliott, Stephen Tobolowsky, Brian Doyle-Murray
As my father’s favorite film, I sat through this comedy a countless number of times before falling in love with it myself. Bill Murray (a jerk), through some unexplained magic, relives the same day over and over again before becoming a better person. Though Murray had previously played a modern day scrooge, it is this performance that ranks as my top film Scrooge portrayal. Andie MacDowell plays the love interest, and shows great chemistry with Murray.
Voices of Lucille La Verne, Harry Stockwell, Roy Atwell, Adriana Caselotti
It’s almost sacrilegious to say anything against this Walt Disney classic, the first ever full length animated feature, but fortunately, that’s not a problem as the fairy tale is as timeless and magical as it is billed. With unforgettable music, characters, and animation, it proves to be the template for animation over seventy years later.
Starring Anthony Hopkins, Emma Thompson, James Fox
Anthony Hopkins is perfect as Mr. Stevens, a repressed butler who serves relentlessly at the expense of life and love. Emma Thompson represents both for him as his friend and coworker, Miss Kenton. Slowly devastates. Based on Kazuo Ishiguro’s equally masterful novel.
