Director Ridley Scott (Alien, The Martian) pulls off an incredible feat of filmmaking by replacing Academy Award winner and now-notorious-creep Kevin Spacey (The Usual Suspects, American Beauty) with Academy Award winner Christopher Plummer (The Sound of Music, Beginners) in All The Money In The World. Continued outrage dogged the movie when it was revealed that Academy Award nominee Mark Wahlberg (The Departed) made more than 1,000 times as much money for the required reshoots than Academy Award nominee Michelle Williams (Manchester by the Sea). A movie filled with intrigue and money troubles embroiled in intrigue in money problems - how meta.
Writer/director Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz) brings his particular type of British razzle dazzle to the United States and amps up the adrenaline in Baby Driver starring Ansel Elgort, John Hamm, Jamie Foxx, and Kevin Spacey. This crime thriller will have you dancing to your car and speeding all the way home.
The Best Picture Choosing Machine has served up the winner from 1999 - American Beauty starring Kevin Spacey and Annette Bening.

20 years ago (!) Bryan Singer electrified audiences with his taut, intelligent, brutal crime thriller The Usual Suspects. The film went on to win two well-deserved Oscars and to inspire a generation of film makers and copycat crime films. It almost single-handedly started the "twist ending" trend - so, hate it for that if you must. Surprisingly, there are still people who haven't had the opportunity to discover this one for themselves. We tried REALLY hard NOT to spoil this nearly-perfect film.
