Jackie Brown ? Now I?ve finally seen all of Tarantino?s films. It?s a really fun film, and I loved the character of Jackie Brown. She was just fun, so was Sam Jackson and Robert DeNiro.
Castle in the Sky ? Another great film from Miyazaki. That guy can do no wrong. There are so many more of his films I need to see, and I just can?t wait to get my hands on them.
Touchez pas au grisbi ? I?m so bummed, because we watched [i]Le Trou[/i] in my class, as well as this, but I had to leave for [i]Le Trou[/i] because there was a test after it, and I didn?t know about it and hadn?t studied. So I missed it, and it was the film I was most excited about seeing on the big screen, behind [i]Double Indemnity[/i], which is next week! So excited about that. Anyway, [i]Grisbi[/i] was really great, about a couple of, well, not gangsters, but sort of like that. And some trouble they get into over a girl and some money.
Little Caesar ? The old gangers films (this, [i]The Public Enemy[/i] etc.) are so much better than any of the [i]Godfathers[/i] or any modern gangster pictures. They really just don?t make ?em like they use to. [i]Little Caesar[/i] stars Edward G. Robinson is one of the best performances ever. He is really spectacular as Rico, and up and coming gangster, so full of himself that it becomes his ultimate demise.
