Thursday Movie Picks is hosted by Wandering Through the Shelves. For entries of other participants and themes for the year, head over to her site. This week's theme is about rescue movies. Here are my picks for the week.
Die Hard - One of Bruce Willis' famous movies and a staple on Christmas movie lists, Die Hard has one man take on all the villains in order to rescue his wife (and her colleagues by association) as they are trapped inside a building. This was a great start to the franchise, but based on the recent installment, I don't think it's going to be rebooted anytime soon.
Argo - While this has historical inaccuracies, the plane scene was really intense. I think this is the film that puts Ben Affleck back to the radar, as he kind of just disappeared between the years.
Cellular - Quality-wise, this was mediocre. It has a wrong-place-at-the-wrong-time character scrambling through the city to find this woman who randomly dialed his phone and asked for his help. This was pre-Captain America Chris Evans, so it's always nice to look back at his filmography.
