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.

Groundhog Day (1993, Directed by Harold Ramis) English 10

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.

Snow White and the Seven Dwarves (1937, Directed by David Hand) English 10

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.
