    "People scare better when they're dyin'"

    One of the best westerns ever with great cast, Henry Fonda superbly playing against type, while Sergio Leone and Ennio Morricone craft and skill to the fore yet again.​

    (Full Movie)

    "You see, in this world, there's two kinds of people, my friend: those with loaded guns, and those who dig. You dig."

    Sergio Leone's iconic final chapter of the 'Dollars' trilogy with Clint Eastwood riding off into the sunset one last time as the Man With No Name, Lee Van Cleef's villian and Eli Wallach, 'known as the Rat', and Morricone's unmistakable score.​

    1962



    "The defendant is not guilty. But someone in this courtroom is."

    Harper Lee's novel comes to life, with Gregory Peck in a career defining role as Atticus Finch that is so much more than a simple courtroom drama, of community steeped in bigotry and racism, lthrough the innocent eyes of Scout and Jem, the mysterious Boo Radley and of the case of Tom Robinson.​

    "We all go a little mad sometimes"

    Alfred Hitchcock's masterpiece welcomes you to the Bates Hotel - and a detour from sanity.​
