Every day we recommend three movies that we think you might like. Here are our three for today.
Happy Monday folks! Our list of daily movie recommendations is now live and as timely as ever. As you may already know, the selections are based on reviews, personal viewing, and relevance. Some you may have seen already and some may not be your cup of tea but we hope that at least one catches your eye.
There are quite a lot of mixed reviews regarding Halle Berry's psychological thriller "The Call". The film follows a 911 operator who gets a call from a teenage girl who has just been abducted. The 911 operator uses everything in her power to rescue the young abductee. The film was directed by Brad Anderson and stars Halle Berry, Abigail Breslin, Morris Chestnut, Michael Eklund, Michael Imperioli, and David Otunga.
This one takes us way back to 1987 when RoboCop was cool! The new RoboCop film was okay but it was the original that really had me going when I was younger. The film follows a police officer named Alex Murphy who is murdered by a gang of criminals. He is then brought back to life by the megacorporation Omni Consumer Products as a superhuman law enforcement cyborg called RoboCop. It was directed by Paul Verhoeven and stars Peter Weller, Nancy Allen, Dan O'Herlihy, Kurtwood Smith, Miguel Ferrer, and Ronny Cox.
Last on our list comes from the amazing Studio Ghibli. "Howl's Moving Castle" is among the best and it follows a young woman who becomes cursed with an old body by a witch. Her only hope of breaking the spell is through a young wizard and his companions in his legged, walking castle. The Japanese animated fantasy film was written and directed by Hayao Miyazaki and is voiced by Jean Simmons, Emily Mortimer, Lauren Bacall, Christian Bale, and Billy Crystal.
