Insomnia

2002

Starring: Al Pacino, Robin Williams, Hilary Swank

Al Pacino and Robin Williams work great together. Hilary Swank… well, I could do without her and her mouthful of teeth.

They couldn’t have cast a better actor than Robin Williams to play Walter Finch. He was excellent. And Al Pacino (Will Dormer) always makes the excellent cop with the – not a crooked cop but could be a crooked cop – way about him.

There is one scene where I completely held me breath, I was so in to the movie that I didn’t breath until the characters breathed.

OK, no spoilers!

Here is the trailer:

His Girl Friday

1940

Starring: Cary Grant, Rosalind Russell and Ralph Bellamy

What can I say… Just another classic Cary Grant movie only here he stars with the beautiful Rosalind Russell. She’s definitely a looker.

Storyline… He’s a newspaper man, she’s a newspaper woman. Divorced. He’s trying to get her back. Does he succeed? Watch and see!

Pot of Gold

1942

Starring: Jimmy Stewart, Paulette Goddard and Horace Heidt

I have to say, I don’t like musicals. Really. Can’t stand them. BUT… I watched this one. Only because they did it in such as way as to not want to make me rip my hair out. And the fact that it’s a Jimmy Stewart movie. Actor of the Gods I tell you.
