The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (1966) – Review
During the American Civil War, three men of completely different temperaments get involved in a dangerous and unforgiving adventure, which pits them against each other in order to find a fortune of gold that has seemingly been buried in a cemetery many miles away. One is an ex-bounty hunter who lives by a certain honourable code of conduct, while the second is a fast-tempered, greedy former convict, with the third being a cruel and heartless murderer. An all-time great that is widely regarded as one of the finest films to hit our screens.
Escape from Alcatraz (1979) – Review
Alcatraz, also known as the Rock, was labelled as one of the most secure prisons of its time. Located in the United States, it was firmly believed that nobody could ever escape from it, until three daring men, fronted by Frank Morris (Clint Eastwood) make a potentially successful attempt at getting out of the most infamous prison in the world. This classic production was originally released in 1979 and many believe it still holds itself in high regard to this day.
