When I first read today’s topic, I thought it said Thirsty Thrillers.. which would have been a very funny theme. Maybe in 2019, I could recommend Thirsty Thrillers as one of the themes. It would require listing boring thrillers that try too hard. But we’re still in 2018, and I am recommending the good ones, the there’s a twist around every corner type thrillers. I’m going with a theme-ish selection by picking three 90’s thrillers with one word titles.
Have I mentioned this one before? Probably. Is it as twisty as the theme suggests? Maybe not as much. But did I need a third one word 90’s thriller to complete my list of three recommendations? Maybe. But also, The Fugitive is just a really good movie. And it has Harrison Ford, and one can never go wrong with Ford.
The charming Sandra Bullock had a very interesting career during the 90’s, and I think if not for a few, I’ve seen most of her movies. In The Net, Bullock portrays a software engineer, who gets in trouble. First of all, the level of IT is scary funny to see in this movie – it’s less that 20 years ago and the difference is HUGE. Second of all, Bullock is so charming, it’s hard not to root for her, when she tries to get her life back.
Michael Bay has gotten a bad rep for Transformers, and rightfully so but there are a few hits in his resume. The Rock is one of those hits, because it’s a very intense and interesting movie from start to finish. It stars Nicholas Cage, Sean Connery and Ed Helms, and they all deliver! It’s one of those 90’s movies I used to watch whenever I wanted to watch something. I must apologise in advance for the pun, but this movie simply rocks!
