Welcome to another entry for Thursday Movie Picks.
It’s a series hosted by Wandering through the Shelves, so if you want to join the party, head over to her blog! It’s pretty easy: check out each week’s topic and come up with 3 to 5 movies that fit the theme.
For this week, I’m going to do a theme within the theme once more. There are so many great Private Eye flicks out there I have yet to see. So today, I’ll share the Private Eye films that are waiting on my to-watch-list!
#1 Angel Heart:
This neo-noir flick has been sitting on my list for ages. Somehow I always missed it when Angel Heart was on TV but it seemed sooo intriguing!
Chinatown is, of course, a very well-known classic but I still haven’t seen it. Jack Nicholson is a brilliant actor, so I’m always excited to see his films. This is one of his most famous and iconic movies, so it’s a must watch!
#3 The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes:
I’ve read my share of Sherlock Holmes books and really enjoy Benedict Cumberbatch’s performance and Robert Downey Jr. take on the role. However, the 1970’s version is supposed to be fantastic as well. So I hope to get to see it soon!
What’s your favorite Private Eye film? Let me know in the comments!
