Saving Private Ryan
Directed by Steven Spielberg and starring Tom Hanks, Saving Private Ryan is set during World War Two just after the invasion of Normandy. It is often called the definitive World War Two movie and that is something I can agree with. Spielberg was named a Best Director at the Academy Awards amongst many other awards and prizes that the movie won. A modern classic seen by many, it is worth a watch at home with a snack amongst friends and family.
Directed by Ang Lee, Brokeback Mountain is the story of two men (Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal) as strangers who are hired to herd sheep in 1963. Their relationship grows closer and then sexual. This movie shows their feelings grow for each other. It is a strong emotional showings for all the actors involved and a good movie because of it.
Directed by Antoine Fuqua this movie sees an LAPD officer (played by Ethan Hawke) on his first day as part of a team that is being evaluated by a narcotics officer played by Denzel Washington. This movie scored Washington his first Oscar Award for Best Actor and he definitely earned that award in this film.
Directed by Christopher Nolan, this Netflix gem was the first of a trilogy of Batman movies he directed. This movie introduces Christian Bale as the man under the mask and what he went through to become the hero. It shows the Batman origin story told in a better way than the last Batman movie at the time “Batman and Robin” that was released 10 years before and is not looked at fondly.
The Dark Knight
Directed by Christopher Nolan, The Dark Knight stars Christian Bale under the hood as the dark superhero Batman as he faces the Joker played by Heath Ledger (in his final role before he died) and Aaron Eckhart as Two-Face. As you watch Batman face these villians it makes you ask the question of how do you face an enemy who just wants the world to burn?
