Welcome to THEJNSREPORT’S: The Film Committee 5th Edition
Starting us off with another must have in the film library is Akan Bosemann
Akan Bosemann: I’m sure most of today’s generation of movie goers has no clue about the original “Rat Pack” of Oceans’ Eleven with Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr, Dean Martin, Peter Lawford, and Joey Bishop.
I have to admit, truth be told, I myself only remembered Sinatra and Sammy Davis Jr as the most recognizable and memorable of the group. The modern adaptation is an impressive allstar cast of superb actors.
Both Ocean’s Eleven & Ocean’s Twelve in my opinion are bona-fide instant classics. Starring George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Bernie Mac, Don Cheadle,Julia Roberts, Vincent Cassell, Matt Damon, Scott Cain et al.
T.D Moody: Two words, Fight Club. Two more words: 15 Minutes
Jesse Murphy: A must have in your film library is The Box. Starring James Marsden and Cameron Diaz. Eerie and cut from the same cloth as classic series such as Rod Serlings’ The Twilight Zone and the Outerlimits.
I add “The Devil’s Advocate” starring Keanu Reeves, Al Pacino and Constantine if for nothing else, it was one of the films Keanu did pre Matrix Trilogy. If you’ve seen either of these films, I ask which character portrayal of the Devil do you think was the best between the two?
THEJNSREPORT: Last but not least we add Harlem Nights written, directed and starring Eddie Murphy. The cast includes Richard Pryor, Red Fox, Della Reese, Charlie Murphy, Jasmine Guy, Danny Aiello, Arsenio Hall just to name a few.
We also add The documentary of the legendary comedian and actor Richard Pryor in “Richard Pryor: Omit the Logic”
