Though it wasn't a box office success which caused Scorsese no small amount of anxiety , it was hailed by critics and awards-giving bodies, and is now regarded as one of the best boxing movies of all time. Brothers David and Jerry Zucker and their friend Jim Abrahams didn't invent the spoof genre, but they perfected it with Airplane!

See a Problem?

Forty years later, this lightning-fast cavalcade of slapstick, wordplay, and everything in between is still hilarious, still the standard by which other spoofs are measured though see the same crew's entry Top Secret! Stephen King famously didn't like Stanley Kubrick's adaptation of his horror novel, but cinephiles—especially devotees of Kubrick—found much to love in the ominous, idiosyncratic, ultimately terrifying story of a man going stir-crazy at an isolated hotel.

The methods to Kubrick's madness are a story in themselves see the fun documentary Room , and The Shining remains one of the more unnerving studies of a damaged mind. Robert Reford's directorial debut, a searing story about a family in crisis after the death of a son, earned him the only competitive Oscar of his career so far and established him as the latest well-liked actor who was perhaps even better behind the camera. Sitcom stars Mary Tyler Moore and Judd Hirsch also proved their mettle as serious actors, making Ordinary People a surprise on several counts.

Steven Spielberg and George Lucas were two of the other '70s mavericks, and their fond homage to the serialized movie adventures of their childhoods is one of the best examples ever of making a high-quality movie while staying inside the lines. With an A-list star Harrison Ford and those two A-list directors involved Lucas as producer , they could have coasted and made a hit.

Instead they proved that popcorn entertainment can also be ingeniously crafted. Spielberg had a pretty great decade even more so if you believe he's the true director of Poltergeist , and followed up Raiders of the Lost Ark with this instant sentimental classic about a boy and his alien friend. Spielberg's sappiness would get the better of him in duds like Always , but here he found the right blend of emotion and nostalgia by giving it a bitter undercurrent Elliott's parents' divorce, the inevitable farewell to remind us that even the sweetest memories often have tinges of sorrow.

Cross-dressing has been a staple of movies since the earliest days of film, but it's rarely been done with such precise satirical purpose and sharp wit as this Sydney Pollack-directed comedy in which struggling actor Dustin Hoffman gets a part on a soap opera by pretending to be a woman. Shifting gender politics would make this a very different film today, but its basic points about sexism not to mention its humor are timeless. Italian "spaghetti Western" director Sergio Leone's final film was this epic gangster story starring Robert De Niro of course and James Woods, which unfortunately got chopped up for its initial release and flopped.

The full minute version is the one that eventually earned critics' attention for its sweeping, violent story of greed, told with a sense of the poetic. Murray Abraham won an Oscar for playing the jealous Salieri in this triumphant, intelligent account of the composer's relationship with Mozart played by an also-nominated Tom Hulce. The film won Best Picture and remains one of the finest portrayals of artistic genius, and is a grandly entertaining music appreciation lesson to boot. Another epic from a legendary director nearing the end of his career, Akira Kurosawa's magnificently dark take on King Lear is one of his masterpieces.

Full of tragedy, brutality, and spectacle, it's a visually compelling and timely commentary on war and greed. The battle scenes are some of the most striking ever filmed, enhanced by some handmade costumes and Kurosawa's unnerving eye. Terry Gilliam's bleak, hilarious vision of a dystopian future is full of unforgettable images and situations, few of them crazier than the behind-the-scenes story of the film's release.

The struggle was worth it, though, and over time Brazil evolved from a cult favorite into a legitimate classic. Political satire has rarely been so imaginative.

Wicked Games Games series Book 1 by Jessica Clare AudioBook

Here is another movie made within the confines of the studio system that managed to transcend the cookie-cutter mentality by being just about a perfect piece of entertainment. The concept is irresistible, the execution spirited, the performances uniformly appealing. The word " masterpiece " doesn't need to be reserved for long, serious movie. There was a cycle of intense Vietnam films around this time, including Kubrick's Full Metal Jacket , which could just as easily have made this list. But Oliver Stone 's stands out for being semi-autobiographical and capturing the harrowing, dehumanizing details of war.

Wicked Little Games

This glimmering nightmare about the seedy underbelly of suburbia is director David Lynch at his David Lynch-iest, a mesmerizing horror-noir about a naive young man Kyle MacLachlan who gets involved with a nightclub singer Isabella Rossellini being tormented by a maniacal drug dealer Dennis Hopper. That fact alone is impressive, as are the 19, extras used over the course of the film. A romantic fantasy about angels and mortals falling in love, also featuring Peter Falk as himself: a former angel who got bored with immortality and became human. Ever interested in the pursuit of new technology, Robert Zemeckis pulled off several miracles with this detective noir story that shares some DNA with Chinatown.

The interaction between live-action humans and animated characters was groundbreaking, and in many ways still unsurpassed. Few things are as universally agreed upon as the notion that Spike Lee was robbed of his Oscar the year that this incendiary story about race relations on a hot day in Brooklyn competed with the anodyne Driving Miss Daisy. From the explosive opening sequence of Rosie Perez dancing to Public Enemy to the final moments, this is a personal, angry, funny film full of righteous fury and cinematic energy.

Wicked Little Games (Wicked Little Games, #1) by Dee Palmer

With all of the buzz surrounding Stranger Things and its successful third season, it's not surprising to hear that more and more actors want to get involved in the series. Recently, Reese Witherspoon tweeted that she was ready to join the cast of the Netflix hit. So much love for these kiddos and their show. TBT Emmys pic. Witherspoon—who has a very full plate at the moment with the upcoming debut of The Morning Show , the Apple TV series she and Jennifer Aniston will star in and co-produce—was likely joking about the whole thing, but having another A-list celebrity on board for Stranger Things ' fourth season would certainly spark viewership.

Along with its talented up-and-coming actors, the Netflix show has seen appearances from the likes of Sean Astin, Cary Elwes, and Jake Busey, not to mention one of its stars, Oscar nominee Winona Ryder. While fans would likely love to see Witherspoon take on a role in Stranger Things , we'll be patiently waiting to see if a fourth season is even announced before we get our hopes up.

BY Stacy Conradt. The idea for Wicked came to Stephen Schwartz on vacation. There's a surprising connection between Elphaba and Jordan Catalano. Wicked was a smash hit from the get-go … Usually, it takes even the most successful productions two to three years to recoup the original investment. Without her, summer itself will perish. He is determined that Aislinn will become the Summer Queen at any cost - regardless of her plans or desires.

Suddenly, none of the rules that have kept Aislinn safe are working anymore, and everything is on the line: her freedom; her best friend, Seth; her life; everything. Faerie intrigue, mortal love, and the clash of ancient rules and modern expectations swirl together in Melissa Marr's stunning 21st-century faery tale.

I found this really entertaining and I fell in love with the main characters Aislinn and her love Seth. Just a refreshing twist on the world of Fey. I am an adult who listened to this book to preview it for my pre-teen daughter. You will love it.

Good story and I really wish the narrator could have, at least, done a passing job at telling it. If you can get past the smacking of the gum and sucking sounds, you might get through this book.

The narrator was great, the storyline was awesome, and it had some twists you don't see coming. You couldn't help but love the heroine. She is strong, clever, and doesn't let anyone push her around.

COLLECTIONS

Her characters were very believable and were more real because of their flaws. I would definitely recommend this book. The best feature of this book is that it's far less predictable than you'd think. The Wicked Lovely series is one of my favourites because of the way that the fae are described. The story is fun and interesting, with bits of fae lore tied in that make the imagination work hard. The narrator was a bit I don't know how to describe it really. Her voice didn't fit well with the subject matter and I found myself focusing more on her voice than the story.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why? This book kept me on the edge of my seat from start to finish! I did not want to stop listening! It was such a creative and great story. I loved the descriptions of the faeries and the powers they each possessed.

Who was your favorite character and why? It's so hard to decide. I guess the heroine was my favorite for this book, but I have read the others and I really like neil's character because his past seems to have a mystery to it that makes me want to find out more. I like Aislinn because she was very strong and the idea of a mortal that could see faeries and the author's description of how that effected her life was very intriguing.

I had no idea where this fear of the faeries was going to take her next But she eventually overcame her fear and was able to do what she was destined to do after years of being told that faeries were bad and not to be trusted. Which scene was your favorite?

Things to do in NYC

There were so many I liked, but I really enjoyed the love story between Seth and Aislinn. Any additional comments? If you love to read fantasy with unique characters and story line, you will love this book!
