Whether you are familiar with the film or not, “say hello to my little friend” is a phrase you probably are familiar with, from the one and only Tony Montana in Scarface.

Scarface has gone down in history as a classic film. The 1983 crime film was directed by Brian de Palma, produced by Marty Bregman, written by Oliver Stone and starred Al Pacino who had an extraordinary performance playing the role of Antonio ‘Tony’ Montana.

Tony Montana arrives in Miami from Cuba with nothing to his name. Montana has one hell of a journey, eventually becoming the biggest drug lord in the state, providing cocaine for dealers around the world. As Tony rises to ‘success’ in the drug business, a target on his head seems to get bigger and the pressure is on by everyone from the police to the Colombians.

Throwback Thursday: Ghostbusters!

admin-ajax

It is Thursday; you know what that means – Throwback Thursday! Today we are throwing it back to a classic (what’s new?). The 1984 American comedic, and kind of supernatural, film – Ghostbusters!

This original film written by Ivan Reitman was actually produced by two of its main actors, Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis. Aykroyd and Ramis along with Bill Murray played three parapsychologists in New York City who start their own business. Sounds pretty ordinary, except their business was one for catching ghosts – which Ernie Hudson’s character finds out when he joins in on it. In the film, we get to witness these men take on ‘clients’ who need their services in catching ghosts, and all of the crazy things they encounter while doing it.

I am sure that if I turned your TV on to this week’s throwback, most of you could recite a few of Denzel Washington’s lines in it. You have probably guessed it – this week we are reminiscing on the early 2000’s film, Training Day.

Directed by Antoine Fuqua, this film had a pretty solid cast, including Denzel Washington, Ethan Hawke, Eva Mendes, Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Cliff Curtis and more. The film was about a Los Angeles Police Department narcotics officer “training” a rookie on his first day, and taking him through the inner-city busting drug dealers. However, it doesn’t take too long before we realize Detective Alonzo Harris, played by Denzel, is not quite who we think he is.

The 1996 film was a huge hit, and really helped in advancing Will Smith’s acting career. Prior to Independence Day, the actor starred in films Six Degrees of Separation and Bad Boys. This one however, blew him over the top, as it became the second highest grossing film in history during that time!

Watching movies in the late 80’s and early 90’s there was the must-see action-packed comedy film series ‘Lethal Weapon’, all directed by Richard Donner.

Lethal Weapon is a series of cop action films starring some of our favorite actors, including main roles, Mel Gibson and Danny Glover.

In this series of classic films, Gibson and Glover play the roles of Martin Riggs and Roger Murtaugh, two officers working for the Los Angeles Police Department. While Roger’s character is a more laid back, older family man who just celebrated his 50th birthday in the start of the film, he is partnered up with Martin, who on the other hand is more of a wild one that can say or do anything crazy at any given moment.
