The Sting (1973)

Paul Newman and Robert Redford will forever be known as Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. The two Hollywood icons did not win Best Picture for their gunslinger movie, however the pair reunited in 1973 to give us The Sting, one of the most entertaining old movies I’ve ever seen.  Set in Chicago right after … More The Sting (1973)

Forrest Gump (1994)

It is 2021, which means that Forrest Gump has been a part of everyday culture for over 25 years. There is nothing I can say in this tiny space of the internet that can change anyone’s perspective of one film history’s greatest stories.  Whether you love him or hate him, Forrest Gump (Tom Hanks) is … More Forrest Gump (1994)

Gladiator (2000)

The year 2020 marks the 20th anniversary of one of the Bets Picture winners, 2000’s Gladiator, starring Russell Crowe and Joaquin Phoenix. I wish I could say somewhere in a box my movie ticket stub is still there, however I lost a massive amount of tickets long ago and Gladiator would be one of them.  … More Gladiator (2000)

Scoob! (2020)

Scooby Doo is a part of childhood just as much as it was for you or your kids. You’d be hard pressed to find someone out there who doesn’t know the brown hair dog who lives to eat and solve* mysteries. I put the asterisk there because Scoob may always catch the bad guy, however … More Scoob! (2020)

Klaus (2019)

Klaus ended up being the Christmas animated masterpiece we never knew we needed. There could be a thousand words to describe this Oscar nominee, but the only you need is beautiful. Klaus has to be one of the most beautifully animated movies I’ve ever seen. Couple those pen strokes with one of the most original … More Klaus (2019)

Serendipity (2001)

Serendipity is a famous little restaurant in the Upper East Side in Manhatten. If you look up the word, it means “the faculty or phenomenon of finding valuable or agreeable things not sought for also: an instance of this.” If you dig a little deeper, the word is associated with fate.  Fate works in mysterious … More Serendipity (2001)

Hitch (2005)

I love the movie Hitch, which stars Will Smith, Eva Mendes, and Kevin James because it is current, funny, and charming on various levels.  There may be a hundred films about dating, especially dating in New York City, yet this one stands above and beyond the rest.  The chemistry is instant as Smith, and James’ … More Hitch (2005)

Return to Me (2000)

At first glance, like most people, you probably thought a romantic comedy starring David Duchovny and Minnie Driver would be a bomb. Let me tell you that Return to Me, written and directed by Bonnie Hunt, is one of the sweetest movies I’ve ever fallen in love with.  Driver plays a young woman named Grace, … More Return to Me (2000)
