The Last Days of Patton (1986)

The great life of Gen. George S. Patton deserved a final chapter on film, but had to settle for this made-for-TV version.

Vertigo

Not the top-of-the-line Hitchcock, but 1958's "Vertigo" is always worth another look.

Cabaret (1972)

"Cabaret" is many things, not the least of which is the answer to a question sure to stump friends on trivia night.

Action in the North Atlantic (1943)

"Action in the North Atlantic" is a seemingly run-of-the-mill bit of WWII wartime propaganda, set apart by its grim tone and outstanding naval action.

The Station Agent

This touching slice-of-life film jumpstarted the careers of Peter Dinklage and Bobby Cannavale.

Major League (1989)

Sort of the antithesis of "Bull Durham," "Major League" is a jock's jock movie featuring distinctive characters, straightforward jokes and James Gammon.

Laura (1944)

The 1944 film noir is a movie with a distinctly pessimistic view of humanity that is photographed with an aching, shadowy beauty.

Touch of Evil

Classic film noir mystery / thriller is an absolute joy to watch.
