What On What’s Good favourite from ‘Hits for the Whole Household’ – Uncle Buck

A comedy film directed by John Hughes and starring John Candy and Amy Madigan, with Jean Louisa Kelly, Gaby Hoffmann, Macaulay Culkin, Jay Underwood, and Laurie Metcalf in supporting roles.  If you have never seen the movie I think you will particularly enjoy the scenes with John Candy and Macauley Culkin.

What On What’s Good favourite from ‘Get Chilled to the Bone’ – Red Dragon

A psychological horror film directed by Brett Ratner. starring Anthony Hopkins with Edward Norton, Ralph Fiennes, Harvey Keitel.  I suggest you watch Silence of the Lambs (1991) and Hannibal (2001) to understand the Hannibal character.  This should give you a pretty good idea of what to expect from Red Dragon,

What On What’s Good favourite from ‘Holding Out for a Hero’ – Man on Fire
