128 Elizabeth

A fantastic story about Queen Elizabeth I, who is portrayed in all her complexity by Cate Blanchett. This film is beautifully crafted - from costumes to make- up to a cinematography that matches the very best Tudor portraits by Hans Holbein. Intrigue, drama, character, and a keen insight into a fascinating time.

129 A Night to Remember

Greatest movie about the disaster of the sinking of the Titanic. Even though it was made before the discovery of the ship, and before it was confirmed that she split in 2, before sinking, it still feels as though you are watching the disaster itself, while you watch it.

Now THAT movie best sums up the disaster of the sinking of the Titanic.
