(Reader’s note: Depending on the speed of your Internet connection, the embedded trailers may take extra time to load. But they’ll be worth the wait.)
Magnolia (1999): When it rains frogs and you even think Tom Cruise is good, the film must be wonderful.
Fail-Safe (1964): The melodrama of “The Bomb.” It ruled us all for decades.
The Pride of the Yankees (1942): The Iron Man, the natural, baseball, a good wife, and summer.
White Heat (1949): Cagney, “top of the world, Ma!”
Hail the Conquering Hero (1944): We’ll throw a party for any old thing; we’ll find a hero where ever we can.
Goodfellas (1990): Martin Scorsese has done Italian gangsters many different ways. This is the best; Mean Streets is the original.
Do the Right Thing (1989): Ann Coulter may think there are only a handful or racists in America, but we know better, and Spike Lee knows best.
