Summary
  • Goodfellas: Details the rise and fall of Henry Hill, a Brooklyn kid who grows up idolizing the "wise guys" from his neighborhood. He begins hanging around the mobsters and doing odd jobs until he gains the notice of local chieftain, Paulie Cicero. In his teens, Hill distinguishes himself as a "stand-up guy" by choosing jail time over ratting on his accomplices. From that moment on, he is a part of the family. Along with his partner Tommy, he rises through the ranks to become Paulie's lieutenant. Soon he finds himself the target of both the feds and the mobsters
  • Malcolm X: Born Malcolm Little, his minister father was killed by the Ku Klux Klan. He became a gangster, and while in jail discovered the Nation of Islam writings of Elijah Muhammad. After getting out of jail, he preaches the teachings, but later on goes on a pilgrimage to the city of Mecca. There he converts to the original Islamic religion and becomes a Sunni Muslim. He changes his name to El-Hajj Malik Al-Shabbaz and stops his anti-white teachings, having discovered the error of his mistakes. He is later assasinated and dies a Muslim martyr
  • Seven: A psychological thriller about two detectives on the trail of a serial killer who chooses his victims according to the seven deadly sins
  • Dumb and dumber: A comedy about a pair of dim-witted friends on a cross-country trip to return a case full of money
  • Matrix: Neo, a mild-mannered software author by day, feared hacker by night, is recruited into a cell of cyber-rebels, led by Morpheus and the warrior, Trinity. They have made a fundamental discovery about the world: It does not exist. It is only a seedy utopia where humanity is preserved, protected, and endlessly recycled by a mega-computer. Cypher turns traitorous for access to comforts unmatched by the drab post-apocalyptic real world, while Agent Smith dismisses humans as "a plague" - for which non-organic life is " the cure."
