The world's movie industry has been doing well and working themselves out to give us quality products, even if it comes at the cost of paying with our money to purchase the movies and playing with our time to watch the movies, we enjoy their products that's why we don't mind paying, grabbing some popcorn to get entertained. With that being said, I want to give a big thumbs up to the worldwide movie industry for coming at us back to back with content to entertain us, without much rambling I want to do my personal Top 5  thriller movies you must see before going old, Lol! "Whatever that means". If you don’t know what a thriller movie is, it is a simple genre of fiction that uses suspense, tension, and excitement as the main elements of the plot. Below are my Top 5 Thriller Movies.

The DaVinci code

The Da Vinci Code is a thriller film of 2006, directed by Ron Howard and based on  'novel bestseller by Dan Brown'. The film has been harshly criticized on several occasions by different personalities belonging to the hierarchy of the Catholic Church. The criticisms have been, for good reasons, "the misconception of some historical reconstructions, the mixture of facts and fictions and the mystification of doctrinal assumptions, seen as slanderous and source of disorientation and of the possible removal of the faithful from the Church."

I won't lie, this movie played with my mind a bit but I am fine now and I have nothing against the Catholic church, as a matter of fact, I attend one. If you are the kind of person that believes everything a movie says or acts, I will advise you don’t watch this movie.

The casts were great and they played their roles well, this is a kind of movie you have to watch with full concentration so you don’t miss some information. There is also part 2 of this movie which is titles Angels and Demons and it’s definitely is a must-watch. There is no relationship between the First and Second movie, they have a totally different storyline, so it makes no difference the one you decide to watch first. STARING:  Tom Hanks, Audrey Tautou, Ian McKellen, Jean Reno,  Paul Bettany, among others 

Unusual Suspect

The Usual Suspects is a film of 1995 directed by Bryan Singer and was written by Christopher McQuarrie. The plot follows the interrogation of Roger "Verbal" Kint, a small-time con man who is one of only two survivors of a massacre and fire on a ship docked at the Port of Los Angeles. He tells an interrogator a convoluted story about events that led him and his partners in crime to the boat, and about a mysterious mob boss is known as Keyser Söze who commissioned their work.

At the end of this movie I had my mouth wide open for minutes, I remembered my husband tapping me back to reality. It was well played and all the actors did great. A little advice for one who is looking to watch this movie is to pay attention to every word said and every action made.  STARING Stephen Baldwin, Gabriel Byrne, Chazz Palminteri, Kevin Pollak, Pete Postlethwaite, Kevin Spacey, Suzy Amis, Benicio del Toro

A Murder of Crows

This was a film of 1999 written and directed by Rowdy Herrington, and starring in the main roles, by American actors Cuba Gooding Jr. and Tom Berenger. OMG!, This movie shook me, even the beginning of the movie got my attention which made me gave all my attention, and indeed it wasn’t a waste of time. I enjoyed every minute I gave watching this movie.

For a spoiler, Lawson Russell, an attorney radiated by the order for having decided after a crisis of conscience to renounce the defense of one of his clients whose guilt he understood, proposes to change his life and write a book which got his ass into trouble bigger than what he could imagine.

Double Jeopardy 

Double Jeopardy is a film of 1999 directed by Bruce Beresford. As I watched this movie, I broke inside because I saw and felt the pain of a woman who was wrongly accused of a crime she did not commit, she lost her family who was the most important person in her life. Guess who was the guilty one!  I remember shedding a drop, just a drop of tear, and getting into my feelings after watching this movie. If you know you are very sensitive please stay away but watch it anyway. It is a great movie. STARING: Ashley Judd, Tommy Lee Jones, Bruce Greenwood.

Sherlock Holmes

This is a film of 2009 directed by Guy Ritchie starring Robert Downey Jr as Sherlock Holmes and Jude Law in the part of Dr. Watson. The screenplay is based on the comic strip written specifically by Lionel Wigram and inspired by the novels of the Scottish author Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. It is action and a little bit of comedy, The actors, did well as they played their roles effortlessly and it was beautiful watching them. There are many versions of this movie but this is my preferred and I hope you will enjoy it as I did.
