My Top Five Favorite Ron Howard Movies

This is the kind of movie trivia that you just can’t make up. Those prize winning novels that were turned into prize winning movies are Gone with the Wind and All the King’s Men. We can not deny the purity and lovely idea with animated films.
One of the great experiences in going to the movies is hearing the music or a specific song or its theme song that may open or close the film. Music oftentimes sets the mood or scene during the screenplay. It can make you feel good, excite you or scare you right out of your seat. These ten memorable movie music, songs and themes will do that and more.

Schindler’s List is probably the most upsetting movie I have ever seen. Spielberg delivers on all accounts with this film that plays out more like a documentary than an original work. If you are looking for a World War II-based film that will change your way of thinking, this is it.

Of course there are always doubts amongst men, what to wear under the kilt and questions like ‘is it OK for me to wear a skirt” still happens. The answer is of course “yes”, because kilt isn’t a skirt. The truth like this can be heard from many 100 percent real men whose passion are Scottish Highlands and Scottish tradition.

The first surprise is that this movie is funny. This isn’t a bad thing. The Coen Brothers added their brilliantly witty dialogue to this classic tale of kidnapping and murder and made the film their own. By combining those elements with an incredible cast, the Coens have whipped up one of the best American westerns since Clint Eastwood’s Unforgiven.

To this day whenever I hear this song by The Doors I always think of the Vietnam War images from the film “Apocalypse Now.” There is something so evocative and surreal about the song. It’s actually eleven minutes long featuring a spoken interlude by Jim Morrison, the lead singer, who uses words about violence, profanity and an incestuous subject. “The End’s” music has a mystical Indian sound that you’d hear from India. At any rate, the song fits in perfect as the film’s opener and during a violent scene later on in the plot.

I thought I knew what to expect from the Coen Brothers’ latest film project True Grit. I love a good western, and just watching the trailer for this film gave me the chills. As many of you already know this isn’t the first time Charles Portis’ 1968 novel has been adapted for the big screen. John Wayne 12 years a slave awards years a slave awards for Best Actor playing grizzled lawman Rooster Cogburn in the 1969 film. “Fill your hands, you son of a bitch,” may be the greatest line The Duke ever delivered. Yes, I was sure I knew what to expect. But with the Coen Brothers involved, I should also have been expecting some fun surprises.

The Family Man – This one has Tia Leone in it, so I watched it. It could be any movie that features the personification of your personal lust. By that I mean whatever leading lady or man you most desire. You can sublimate your sexual desires into physical effort, replacing heartbreak and alimony payments with cardiovascular health in the process!

Raging Bull is Martin Scorsese’s tale of boxer Jake LaMotta’s self destructive journey through life. Starring Robert DeNiro and Joe Pesci the film won DeNiro an Academy Award for best actor. It is a cinematic masterpiece based on the true story of a middle-weight prize-fighter from the late-1940s and early-1950s. It is not only a great sports movie but one of the greatest films of all times.
