#2 Jackie Brown was a slick, smart movie, and Robert Forrester was his coolest ever - similar to his character on Breaking Bad, but even better.

Fight Club is one of the most overrated movies ever made. It really isn't good. An interesting premise that was poorly done.

Ada,

I remember the first time I ever saw this, counting down to the exact second the bomb went off out loud. Buddy thought I had lied and saw it before. Just too predictable.

try and enjoy these without thinking about how your favorite stars of the past have become pontificating political shills who should have kept their mouth shut rather than betray and isolate the very fans who made them rich and famous.
