- BAY OF ANGELS (1963)

- TOKYO DRIFTER (1966)
A yakuza enforcer has a chance to go straight when his boss declares they are going straight.The Drifter sings his song and dreams of a life just drifting along, until the other gangs get in the way to keep him fighting.
- THE AUTOPSY OF JANE DOE (2016)
A woman’s body is found in a cellar! She’s taken to a father and son team who do the autopsy and soon they discover there is something very strange and wrong afoot. Really creepy, really good, just well done scares and twists.
- BLACK PANTHER (2018)
The movie we need right now, the hero we need right now. I LOVED IT SOOOO MUCH!!!!!
- TIME TO DIE / Tiempo de Morir (1966)
A man returns to his hometown after an 18 year prison sentence for killing a man in self defense. The man was greatly missed, but is warned to leave and never return because the children of the man he killed want revenge. Written by Gabriel Garcia Marquez, it is great, yet sad, look at machismo and how the cycle for vengeance only brings pain and more death.
Still re-watching movies too!!!
