My 100 movies (as of 2006 - Pre Netflix) 40 - 31

40. American History X



Great use of black and white. Edward Norton tries to save his brother Edward Furlong from going down the same path that he did. Norton steals the show and the dialogue is amazing. Takes some time to get into it I feel, but once your there you are hooked.

The Why: Brad Pitt shows up which is a plus. Zombie movies are generally fun, but just very skeptical of this one.


28. The Devil Inside

The What: A woman becomes involved in a series of unauthorized exorcisms during her mission to discover what happened to her mother.
The Why: I enjoy exorcist movies, though they have all fallen short since the original. I keep hoping though. Disjointed bodies freak me out.


27. Halloween 3D

The What: Not much is known, but it's 3D. Yeah!? I never actually saw the second, though I enjoy the first immensely.
The Why: No Rob Zombie. If it's a…
