There’s not much that needs to be said about this one. Everyone knows it, everyone loves it. It’s the classic sci-fi comedy in which the group of Bill Murray, Dan Akroyd, Harold Ramis, and Ernie Hudson will come to you and rid you of any ghostly issues you may be having. A must-own.
Adventures of Baron Munchausen
Terry Gilliam‘s fantasy adventure about Baron Munchausen and his crazy adventures. There’s so much going on in this tale, which stars a young Uma Thurman, that it’s hard to even explain, but there’s no denying that the movie is done in a way that only the mind of Terry Gilliam can compose.
Guy Ritchie‘s brilliant follow-up to Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels. The movie follows various characters and their involvements in theft, fighting, gangs, and murder and how all of their stories eventually cross paths. This one would come highly recommended by many people.
Even Michael Bay haters may ponder grabbing his movies at this price. We all know everyone loves the bang-bang anyway, even if it’s denied to their deaths. The original flick about two Miami cops played by Will Smith and Martin Lawrence and their humorous and intense method of getting the bad guys taken care of… which usually consists of fast cars and a ton of explosions.
The movie from screenwriter Charlie Kaufman and director Spike Jonze which follows Nicholas Cage as Charlie Kaufman, a screenwriter going through a mid-life crisis while trying to adapt a book about orchids into a movie while his fictional brother Donald, who is also a screenwriter, finds success in his budding career. Even the oft-attacked Cage delivers a great performance. Highly recommended by I.
