Weeks melt into one and before I know it, another Thursday is around the corner. This week we’re looking into numbers – oooooo, numbers in movie titles (not sequels though)! I don’t know why I’m making this so strange, it’s just numbers. Here are my picks with a surprise twist at the end.
One of my favourite Fincher movies (Zodiac is number one!) is the 1995’s Se7en that has Morgan Freeman and Brad Pitt hunting for a serial killer. Some of you mentioned this during the gluttony theme but I kept it for this week. Mostly because I love this title, Se7en, the number in the middle. I think it’s clever and effective, especially since the movie centres around the seven deadly sins. Oh, and the tone is fabulous and the acting by Freeman and Pitt is great. The intro is also amazing, I raved about it here years ago!
Then we have Three Kings with George Clooney, Mark Wahlberg and Ice Cube. A strange bunch but it all comes together in an entertaining way. It’s basically about three soldiers (technically four I guess but anyway) who go to steal some gold. It’s adventure and action and humour all in one. I saw this ages ago and for some reason I only have fond memories of it. It’s also super easy to just be pulled into by Clooney’s charm!
See what I did here? I myself am very proud of this and I hope this twist on the theme worked out. Anyway, here we have Brad Pitt and George Clooney coming together and making magic. Ocean’s Eleven is one of my favourite heist movies. I know there could be better ones but this is it for me. It also has a lot of characters that could make the movie a little muddled. Doesn’t happen here. Some do get more attention but overall, Ocean’s Eleven is great! It’s also one of those movies I think works completely as a trilogy too. Not counting the female version that didn’t have half the charm the Clooney/Pitt trilogy had in my opinion. Plus, Pitt and Clooney – a bromance for the ages!
