Must-See Movies and a Reminder


Two cats blogging here… Thought we’d take a break from reminding you of the Great Harwich Spirits Shoppe Memorial Day Yard Sale, and offer up some movie suggestions for Monday night… (And you thought that all we did was dig up classic American music… Surprise! Here are some great movies highly recommended by two felines…)

  • Blood From a Stone” (A stunning true-life documentary of a hunt for Nazi-era diamonds and a concomitant personal transformation…)
  • “True Grit” (A classic John Wayne vehicle with a tinge (of all things), humor.
  • “Casablanca” (Love meets war. If you haven’t seen it, drop what you are doing and rent/buy this.)
  • “The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance” (John Wayne/Jimmy Stewart. Bravery of different forms meets sadistic evil. Wonderful.)
  • “The Ox-Bow Incident” (Harry Morgan and Henry Fonda. Powerful exploration of mob psychology.)
  • “Them!” (Must-see 1950s sci fi fun. Good for 13 years old and up.)
  • “Pulp Fiction” (Stunning, dark, violent, adults-only work by Quentin Tarantino.)
  • “Leon” or “The Professional” (Weird tale of assassin meets little girl. Gary Oldman and Jean Reno are perfect.)
  • “Second Hand Lions” (Robert Duval and Michael Caine in a strange, wonderful story. Great for the whole family.)
  • “Terminator Two” (Excellent modern sci fi for adults.)
  • “To Kill a Mockingbird” (Masterpiece in decency.)
  • “Alien” (Frightening adult sci fi.)
  • “Sixth Sense” (Strange story of a child who can see dead people.)
  • “The Usual Suspects” (Fantastic detective story.)
  • “Duck Soup” (Classic Marx Brothers. Ideal for whole family.)
  • “The Best Years of Our Lives” (Certainly one of the finest war movies ever made. It explores the effects of WW II on four people.)

That ought to keep you busy for a while.

Ah heck, we’ll remind you anyway… Check out the pot luck HSS yard sale, this Memorial day!

See you by the tables!
