    Chinatown

    ★★★★★

    "Forget it, Jake. It's Chinatown."

    Chinatown is one of the greatest mystery films ever made and it's a tremendous collaborative effort that produced one of the most memorable Hollywood pictures of the 1970s.

    The entire cast is superb! J. J. "Jake" Gittes (Jack Nicholson) and Evelyn Cross Mulwray (Faye Dunaway) dominate with great performances. Noah Cross (John Huston), a remarkable director in his own right, makes a cameo appearance and himself remarked on Roman Polanski's direction, with the highest praises…

    Pulp Fiction

    ★★★★★

    "English, motherfucker, do you speak it?!"

    Pulp Fiction forever changed cinema, showcasing Quentin Tarantino, with a knife-sharp vision operating unshackled at the absolute height of his powers.

    The film focuses on the intertwining timelines/stories of several characters: two hitmen, a boxer, a mob boss, his wife and two lovers holding up a diner. In a truly genius way, all these stories perfectly weave together in non-linear fashion. Quentin Tarantino stuffs the film with endless pop culture references, surf music and…

    Two for the Road

    ★★★★★

    "Just because you use a silencer doesn't mean you're not a sniper."

    Two for the Road is a classic romantic comedy. The film offers one of the most effective music scores Henry Mancini ever wrote. His music fits perfectly with the action and this film is a perfect example of how Henry Mancini made everything look so easy with his compositions.

    The film follows Joanna 'Jo' Wallace (Audrey Hepburn) and Mark Wallace (Albert Finney), who meet on the road while…

    How to Steal a Million

    ★★★★½

    "There's the bathroom, take off your clothes."

    How to Steal a Million is a clever, quick-paced comedy that sparkles with charm, warmth and director William Wyler uses an inventive plot with suspenseful twists to detail a Parisian art theft.

    William Wyler was at the end of his distinguished career when he undertook this project. The film with a screenplay by Harry Kurnitz is a film that doesn't break any new grounds, but it's a favorite of a lot of fans,…

    Charade

    ★★★★★

    "How about making me vice president in charge of cheering you up?"

    Charade is superbly written, ably directed, brilliantly acted thorough escapism involving thugs killing each other, multiple false identities and the delights of Paris in the 1960s.

    It's a rare philately in which Brian Cruikshank (alias Peter Joshua, Alexander Dyle and Adam Canfield) (Cary Grant) and Regina "Reggie" Lampert (Audrey Hepburn) charm the best heavies in film Carson Dyle (alias Hamilton Bartholomew) (Walter Matthau), Tex Panthollow (James Coburn) and…

    Top Gun: Maverick

    ★★★★★

    "Good morning, aviators. This is your Captain speaking. Today's exercise is dogfighting."

    Top Gun: Maverick is truly an epic blockbuster we needed. The first "Top Gun" (1986) is a classic and as we all know, sequels rarely beat the original, especially 36 years later. Well, this film just broke that theory. Aside from the adrenaline-pumping edge or your seat action, this story also has heart. It successfully overachieves and surpasses its predecessor on every level.

    The directing by novice Joseph…
