    Get Carter

    ★★★½

    Seen by many to be one of the quintessential British gangster films, Get Carter is more a film that I admired than one I fully loved but is itself a pretty solid, down and dirty crime film. The thing that is most praiseworthy about it is of course the lead performance by Michael Caine seeing as the entire movie rests on his shoulders, making it a good thing that he gives such an authority and cool to the role.

    ★★★★½

    The Taking of Pelham One Two Three is low-key one of the most purely fun and entertaining thrillers of the 1970s in my opinion and is one that is just such a blast from start to finish. Performances are brilliant across the board, especially from Walter Matthau and Robert Shaw, the pacing is excellent, and the characters are so colourful, as is its use of the New York City setting. Most impressively though, it's also an incredibly funny movie that…
