    Once Upon a Time in the West

    ★★★★★

    "Make your ever lovin' brother happy."

    Once Upon a Time in the West is one of the best Western films ever made. Sergio Leone mixes the themes of dreams, greed, lust and revenge against the vast Western landscape. Ennio Morricone's score is epic. The cast is terrific: Charles Bronson, Henry Fonda, Jason Robards and Claudia Cardinale. Experienced movie goers will love the building drama and the character study. Incidentally, this is the first western Sergio Leone film in which a woman plays a central and important role. Claudia Cardinale is hypnotic, haunting and incredibly beautiful. Overall, it's simply great.

    The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

    ★★★★★

    "You see, in this world there's two kinds of people, my friend: Those with loaded guns and those who dig. You dig."

    The Good, the Bad and the Ugly is an all time classic Western. Clint Eastwood, Eli Wallach and Lee Van Cleef give magnificent performances. The plot is utterly fascinating, having you wondering until the very end how it will turn out. The scenery is absolutely beautiful. It's filled with varied scenarios, each somehow related to the main plot. Ennio Morricone's score is quite fascinating and the theme is played even today in many different venues. Overall, it's my all time favorite Western.

  • One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest

    One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest

    ★★★★★

    "I'm not going to let you down. I wouldn't leave you here this way. You're coming with me... Let's go."

    One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest is a touching testament to the power of empathy. Miloš Forman lets you understand what it's like confined in an insane asylum. He adapts Ken Kesey's novel into a insane comedy that leaves you feeling destroyed due to its sincere dramatic finale and motifs. It's a touching testament and Jack Nicholson gives one of the greatest performances ever. It's about power over people. Given the weapons at the institution's disposal, it doesn't look good for the challenger. Overall, excellent film.

  • The Rocky Horror Picture Show

    The Rocky Horror Picture Show

    ★★★★★

    "I would like, if I may, to take you on a strange journey."

    The Rocky Horror Picture Show is bizarre at its finest. It's told over an amazing score of dancing and singing. The film centers around Brad Majors (Barry Bostwick) and Janet Weiss (Susan Sarandon), an engaged couple that venture out into the countryside only to have a flat tire in a rain storm. They find a huge hulking castle and try to use the phone. Brad and Janet encounter the strange and wondrous group of individuals from the planet of Transylvania. Dr. Frank-N-Furter (Tim Curry) is at his best. Overall, it's hilarious and ridiculous.
