There are so many good movies in the world, and it’s difficult to remember all of them, so here are three films that I personally used to enjoy, and still regard them today, as some of my favorites.
Mr. Brooks (2007)
Starring Kevin Costner, Demi Moore, and Dane Cook, “Mr.Brooks” is a psychological thriller that I throughly enjoy watching. My favorite feature about this film is the visualization of Mr. Brooks thought processes. We can actually see him talking to another man throughout the movie, who represents Mr. Brook’s inner self/conscience. On the outside, Earl Brooks is just a normal, successful businessman, but we the viewers can clearly see the crazy within him, as well as his massive amount of knowledge that makes him a very smart killer.
I also like the added complication to Mr. Brook’s life of finding out that his own daughter may have inherited his “disease”, as he so refers to it as.
FILM NUMBER 2
The Outsiders (1983)
First having read the book, the movie did very well helping me see the plot played out. Starring Matt Dillon, Patrick Swayze, Rob Lowe, and Tom Cruise, among others, “The Outsiders” is a 60’s based movie about the low-income gang (the Greasers) and a high class gang (the Socs). The two groups are enemies with completely different lifestyles. Ultimately blood is spilled in this classic American Drama.
FILM NUMBER 3
Patch Adams (1998)
Starring Robin Williams, Phillip Seymour Hoffman (who just recently passed away), and Monica Potter, this film is sure to touch your heart in one way or another. Packed with emotion, this movie is based on a true story about the life of Dr. Hunter “Patch” Adams, who wanted to make the world a better place for the sick and hospitalized. Though this did come with several challenges.
Thank you as always for reading.
