The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

The final installment in Sergio Leone’s “Dollars” trilogy starring Clint Eastwood and scored by Ennio Morricone, The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly has inspired countless films and remains a testament to deliberate filmmaking. The other films in the trilogy, A Fistful of Dollars and A Few Dollars More, are also on sale.

Silence of the Lambs

The film that inspired a million terrible impersonations of Anthony Hopkins, Silence of the Lambs is a terrifying and tense psychological thriller that introduced the world to Hannibal Lecter. The other films in the “trilogy,” Hannibal and Red Dragon, are also featured in this sale.

In Bruges

In Bruges is a buddy comedy bookended by moments of occasional violence and crass humor. It stars a pair of hitmen seeking shelter in the sleepy Belgian town of Bruges, which inevitably forces them to reassess their choice of career.

Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy

An amazing Cold War-era spy thriller, Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy feels like a collection of virtually every actor Britain has produced in the past decade. A short list of appearances includes Gary Oldman, Benedict Cumberbatch, Colin Firth, Tom Hardy, John Hurt, and Mark Strong.

The original Star Wars parody, Spaceballs is arguably Mel Brooks’ best work and fits in countless jabs and subtle nods to the George Lucas franchise.

12 Angry Men

12 Angry Men hits just as hard now as it did back in 1957. A true pressure cooker of a film, this monochrome classic proves how much you can do with a cast of 12 dudes in a single room.
