3:10 to Yuma (2007)

As a movie with an Old West theme, 3:10 to Yuma tells a story of how the law enforcement at the time brought outlaws to justice. The main character, Dan Evans (played by Christian Bale), involves himself with the whole ordeal to desperately make money for his family. The movie focuses on the group of people trying to send the outlaw gang leader, Ben Wade (played by Russell Crowe), to Yuma Territorial Prison while the rest of Wade’s gang chase them. Along the journey, Wade uses carefully crafted dialogue to play mind games on the others. The movie explores the ideas of human nature involving how people can make their own choices in life in order to lead a life of honesty or a life of crime.

I recommend this movie to anybody who likes movies dealing with human nature or movies with an Old West setting.

Malcolm X (1992)

After learning about this film from a Wikipedia article about Malcolm X, I decided to watch it.  This movie is an adaptation of Malcolm X’s autobiography.  It talks about his childhood, his time in prison and how he rose up to become such a prominent figure in the African-American Civil Rights Movement.  Anybody who is interested in history or just likes documentary-dramas should really watch this film.  It features many of Malcolm X’s inspiring speeches that he did in the past.  Although his methods were seen by many as extremely radical, he is still one of the most influential people during his time.
