I started off watching A Few Good Men–a classic. There are so many triple bills for which this film could be the solid core:
- Courtroom dramas, or legal films: 12 Angry Men, Presumed Innocent
- Classic Rob Reiner films: When Harry Met Sally, The Princess Bride
- Tom Cruise’s finest moments (yes he can act…sometimes): The Firm, Jerry Maguire
- And it even qualifies for a J.T. Walsh fest (Backdraft, Contact) or a Kevin Bacon linkup! (Murder In the First, Stir of Echoes)
Instead, I’ve gone for Magnum Force, to follow up on Monday’s foray into Clint Eastwoodland. Ah, back in the days when tough guy cops wore ties.
