Happy Tuesday everyone! Welcome to the Top Ten Tuesday now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week's topic is a freebie, so I thought I would share my favorite movies released before 2010 that I watched for the first time in 2019. I can't recommend all of these films enough! Here we go, in alphabetical order by title:
High and Low (1963) - One of the best crime thrillers I've ever seen and so far my favorite Akira Kurosawa movie. Let's just say I wouldn't want to be on Chief Detective Tokura's bad side!
Kiss Kiss Bang Bang (2005) - Perry is Val Kilmer's best role.
The Manchurian Candidate (1962) - Skip the 2004 remake, watch the original masterpiece. Now I fully understand why Tony calls Bucky the Manchurian Candidate in Captain America: Civil War.
The Phantom Carriage (1921) - You know that scene in The Shining where Jack uses the axe to chop down the door to get to Wendy and Danny? Yeah, it was directly inspired by a scene in this silent Swedish horror movie.
Police Story (1985) - This is the best Jackie Chan movie by far that I've ever seen and a brilliant action comedy at that. Jackie Chan's stunts in this make Tom Cruise's in the Mission Impossible series look like nothing.
This is Spinal Tap (1984) - I laughed til I cried watching this rockumentary. I still can't get over the fact that Mr. Green from Clue and Count Rugen from The Princess Bride are in this!
Twelve Monkeys (1995) - This post-apocalyptic time travel movie is awesome. Bruce Willis is great, but Brad Pitt steals the show.
UHF (1989) - I didn't know how much I needed that parody of the Beverly Hillbillies theme set to Money for Nothing by Dire Straits before I watched this. I have a feeling you'll love this if you're a fan of Raising Arizona and Monty Python and the Holy Grail.
Wait Until Dark (1967) - All I needed to hear was Audrey Hepburn in a thriller and I was sold. Basically, it's sort of a flipped take on Don't Breathe.
Zodiac (2007) - Bruce Banner, Tony Stark, and Quentin Beck star in this nail biting thriller about the Zodiac killer from the people behind the movie Se7en. If that's not enough to draw your attention, I don't know what is.
