Dead Presidents
(1995)

This action film, directed by the Hughes brothers, depicts a heist of old bills, retired from circulation and destined by the government to be "money to burn." However, more broadly, it addresses the issues of Black Americans' involvement in the Vietnam War and their subsequent disillusionment with progress in social issues and civil rights back home in the United States, during the 1960's.

Revenge
(2017)

The story sees three wealthy, middle-aged CEOs - all married family men - get together for their annual hunting game in a desert canyon. It's a way for them to let off steam and affirm their manhood with guns. But this time, one of them has come along with his young mistress, who quickly arouses the interest of the two others. Things get out of hand and she is left for dead in the middle of this arid hell. However, the young woman is very much alive, and the hunting game turns into a ruthless manhunt.

L.A. Story
(1991)

Harris K Telemacher is a 'wacky weekend weatherman' for a local Los Angeles television station who is searching for meaning in his otherwise cliche ridden Los Angeles life.

Literally one of my favorite movies of all time.

I've seen parts of this. It looks pretty good (it does feel deeper than a heist film), but I've never seen this through all the way.

I have seen LA Story and I think it captures the Californian spirit better than the Californians sketches on SNL. Thought it was more decent than good, though.

Beyond the Valley of the Dolls
(1970)

This film is a sequel in name only to Valley of the Dolls (1967). An all-girl rock band goes to Hollywood to make it big. There they find success, but luckily for us, they sink into a cesspool of decadence. This film has a sleeping woman performing on a gun which is in her mouth. It has women posing as men. It has lesbian sex scenes. It is also written by Roger Ebert, who had become friends with Russ Meyer after writing favorable reviews of several of his films.

All the Money in the World
(2017)

Rome, 1973. Masked men kidnap a teenage boy named John Paul Getty III (Charlie Plummer). His grandfather, Jean Paul Getty (Christopher Plummer), is the richest human in the world, a billionaire oil magnate, but he's notoriously miserly. His favorite grandson's abduction is not reason enough for him to part with any of his fortune. All the Money in the World (2017) follows Gail, (Michelle Williams), Paul's devoted, strong-willed mother, who unlike Getty, has consistently chosen her children over his fortune. Her son's life in the balance with time running out, she attempts to sway Getty even as her son's mob captors become increasingly more determined, volatile and brutal. When Getty sends his enigmatic security man Fletcher Chace (Mark Wahlberg) to look after his interests, he and Gail become unlikely allies in this race against time that ultimately reveals the true and lasting value of love over money.

I'm glad you enjoyed this. I think the only major issue I had was the twist which felt a bit underwhelming.

Yeah, Jon Stewart can act (kinda). See also Big Daddy (and some others I'm missing).

Yeah, as for Allied, I could have told you about homosexuality being illegal in Britain considering I've seen The Imitation Game about the Enigma machine and its inventor. It was one of the few facts they got right. :shifty:

Set It Off and Colombiana have been two films I've been meaning to see forever and I guess I can add them both to the list. :up:

Also if/when I get time, I guess I need to move Suntan and The Nice Guys up the list as well.

And finally, I think I have a copy of Beyond the Valley of the Dolls somewhere. It's on the same tape as Myra Breckinridge. :shock:

I thought that she was fine. I honestly don't remember it that well, but I gave it a 7/10 on the IMDb. I definitely don't remember having an issue with the acting.

Cool. I'm just kinda waiting for her to emerge as a really good actress, like on that upper-level with the Cate Blanchetts of the world. Well, maybe not that high, but at least like Jessica Chastain level or even Amy Adams or Jennifer Lawrence level (kind of a lot of people on that level right now, actually).

The Hypnotic Eye
(1960)

The city is stricken by a wave of self-mutilations performed by beautiful women who seem to be in a hypnotic trance. The authorities suspect a stage hypnotist with a popular act, but the stakes are raised when the hypnotist sets his sights on the girlfriend of the detective investigating the case. What is the hypnotist's secret, and why does it seem to involve his beautiful assistant?
8/10

Get Shorty
(1995)

Some guys get all the luck, whether they like it or not. Chili Palmer happens to be in Hollywood collecting a gambling debt when he's struck by lightning (not literally). Called a natural for the movie business, he's snagged up by a producer. The rest is history.

John Travolta initially declined an offer to be in this movie, but was convinced by Quentin Tarantino to do it. - Trivia

This really was a pretty good movie and is one of the last things Travolta has done before he proved for the second time in his career that he's just not a very good actor.
