Kubrick's first movie is likely his worst. Actually, I've seen all his movies, and yes it is the worst; but why does this matter when he has made some of the best films of all time.

Mogambo (1953)
Great to see Gable still acting strong and this is possibly my favorite Ava Gardner role. Gorgeous!

Jean Simmons is gorgeous in this religious epic that is, for once, not too terribly long.
The last scene is great.

A classic Samuel Fuller film with a well-paced story and memorable performances.

Brando doesn't save the day again
Stehako's rating:
Or do they?

A Classic Marilyn Monroe film but Jane Russell steals the show in this Howard Hawks classic musical.
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 526 Average listal rating (312 ratings) 7.6 IMDB Rating 7.6


A classic World War II with some surprisingly emotional scenes and performances. The famous beach is disappointing, considering how good the rest of the film is.

People who added this item 176 Average listal rating (101 ratings) 7 IMDB Rating 7.2
Brando nails Caesar

Shane (1953)
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 312 Average listal rating (199 ratings) 7.8 IMDB Rating 7.9


An early film from the great Fellini is a visual feast of composition, staging and hints of themes prevalent in the rest of his career.

Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 1330 Average listal rating (811 ratings) 8 IMDB Rating 8


Hepburn is crazy likable and Peck holds his own in this re-watchable romantic comedy classic.
Stehako's rating:
People who added this item 425 Average listal rating (266 ratings) 7.9 IMDB Rating 8
Stalag 17 (1953)
Stehako's rating:


An undermentioned performance from the great James Stewart.

Peter Pan (1953)


This was, at one point, my favorite Disney film. Still one of my favorites!
Stehako's rating:

In the opinion of Stephen H Koontz

Two monogataris and you guessed it, Pan!
