Reservoir Dogs (1992) is truly an incredible film, and it’s no surprise it is directed by Quentin Tarantino. In my opinion, Tarantino is by far the greatest movie director of all time, and it isn’t even close. Every movie he’s ever made is truly a masterpiece, and this one is no exception. It’s fast paced, packed with incredibly interesting dialogue, and stuffed to the brim with characters who just ooze charisma. This is a crime film and it is truly an intense one right from the start. If you haven’t seen this movie, watch it. Trust me you will not regret seeing this at all.
Goodfellas (1990) is the crowning achievement of Italian mob movies. Many believe that would be “The Godfather”, but Goodfellas outpaces it at almost every turn. The storytelling is brilliant and there isn’t a dull character in the entire movie. There isn’t a ton of action, this would be more classified as a drama, but the intriguing dialogue and twists move this lengthy movie along at break-neck speed. Add on a career defining performance by Robert De Niro and your left with a true masterpiece.
American Beauty (1999) is an Academy Award Winning Drama and is one of the most intriguing movie I’ve ever watched. I had no clue what I was going to be watching when I first went into this movie and I think that just made it even better. It is part drama, thriller, and romance and it provides beautiful social commentary on the world around us. With an ending twist unlike any other, this movie is sure to please even the most common movie goers.
