» Brick
A tough-talking teen attempts to uncover his ex-girlfriend's killer in director Rian Johnson's hard-boiled high-school noir. An outsider by nature, Brendan (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) is forced to penetrate the elaborate ranks of the high-school social scene and its more insidious underbelly when the body of his former girlfriend Emily is found lying lifeless in a remote creek. He's determined to find the guilty party. As Brendan infiltrates the social and political web more deeply, his theory solidifies and each player's role becomes clear, from the shifty-eyed pot slinger to an upper-crust innocent who may well be a femme fatale. Brendan may soon be ready to make his case, even if it's too late for him to get out. (2006)

» Goodfellas
The lowly side of New York's Italian mafia is explored in this crime biopic of wiseguy Henry Hill (Ray Liotta). As he makes his way from strapping young petty criminal, to big-time thief, to middle-aged cocaine addict and dealer, the film explores in detail the rules and traditions of organized crime. Watching the rise and fall of Hill and his two counterparts, the slick jack-of-all-trades criminal Jimmy Conway (Robert De Niro) and the brutish, intimidating Tommy DeVito (Joe Pesci), this true story realistically explores the core, blue-collar part of the mob. Based on the novel by Nicholas Pileggi and written for the screen and directed by Martin Scorsese. "You know, we always called each other good fellas. Like you said to, uh, somebody, 'You're gonna like this guy. He's all right. He's a good fella. He's one of us.' You understand? We were good fellas. Wiseguys." (1990)

This is the story of Gordie Lachance (Wil Wheaton)and three close friends; Chris Chambers (the late River Phoenix), Teddy Duchamp (Corey Feldman) and Vern Tessio (Jerry O'Connell) who went on an adventure to find the body of a kid their age who had gone missing and was presumed dead. The stakes are upped when the bad kids in town are closely tailing - and it becomes a race to see who'll be able to recover the body first. Directed by Rob Reiner and based on the story by Stephen King, this is a classic coming-of-age movie. "For some, it's the last real taste of innocence, and the first real taste of life. But for everyone, it's the time that memories are made of." (1986)
