A little too on the nose...

No, but I had that exact thought when I wrote the third clue. It's very much not that film. B)

11. A Canterbury Tale (1944) Great Cinematography 6.1 /10
12. Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid (1982) Nice experiment and it's fun if you've seen some of the movies that were used as footage 6.3/10
13. Jack Reacher (2012) Much better than expected, very entertaining and it has Werner Herzog in it. Some dialogues however were incredible ridiculous. 8.0/10
14. Clear and Present Danger (1994) My second Jack Ryan movie. Not bad, but Hunt For Red October was better. 6.2/10

Yup! :poshclap:

Saw that when on vacation with my parents. Theater was across the street from our hotel, and I needed to get away from them. And the whole Brady/Moynihan thing just is kinda off-putting how that worked out.

Thriller
68. Ishtar (1987) USA 1 official list 857 checks [double]
Thriller. Seen mostly because of RLM's Star Wars Holiday Special special.
69. Naked Souls (1996) USA 39 checks [double]
Thriller. A strong cast (Krause, Warner, Stockwell) completely wasted. The plot could have worked but they would rather focus on Pam Anderson's boobs.
70. I Know Who Killed Me (2007) USA 1 154 checks [double]
Thriller. Also a plot that could worked with better direction. And if it hadn't been shot at the lowpoint of Lohan's career.
71. Double Down (2005) USA 88 checks [double]
Thriller. Neil Breen is the world's greatest genius. As is his character in this ...movie.

48. The Walker (2007)

Image

This film is chiefly of interest for Woody Harrelson's lead performance, playing completely against type as a soft-spoken gay escort. The script also touches on some trademark Schrader themes of loneliness and isolation, but any thematic depth is largely pushed to the side by the murder mystery at hand, which is nowhere near as interesting as it sounds. The film also wastes a talented supporting cast talent including Lily Tomlin and Lauren Bacall.

And at the risk of stuffing up max's count again, I'm including two films in one post. Already posted this one in the Low IMDb Rating thread a couple of days ago but forgot that it was also eligible here. :unsure:

49. The Terror (1963)

Image

Shot in less than a week with no less than seven (!) directors attached, The Terror is every bit as slapdash a production as it sounds. The opening bits with foreboding crashing waves and eerie locales are actually pretty decent, but they ultimately have little bearing on the story which becomes increasingly ludicrous with each plot revelation. Jack Nicholson does not make for an appealing hero either, though Boris Karloff is his usual solid self.

S2 is on AMC, FUBO, and Sling currently, if you can swing a free trial for any of those. My guess is that it's just not on Hulu yet, but will show up soonish.

50. Clue (Jonathan Lynn, 1985) 8.5/10

This has been a favourite of mine for years, not least because it's based on my favourite board game. A strong cast and a relentless supply of recurring jokes and one liners makes this a fun ride time and again. I semi-subconsciously quote it frequently, with lines like "I'm sure we're all glad to hear that" ... and "too late" pops into my head without fail whenever someone utters the phrase "to make a long story short". One of many great examples (slightly paraphrased, and probably best appreciated by those who have seen and enjoy the film):

COP: Don't worry! There's nothing illegal about any of this.
WADSWORTH (Butler, played by Tim Curry): Are you sure?
COP: Of course! This is America ... It's a free country, don't you know that?
WADSWORTH: I didn't know it was THAT free

51. Widows (Steve McQueen, 2018) 8/10. I've been on a good run the last few days.
