Thursday Movie Picks #33: Numbers in Title

Hey! Welcome to Thursday Movie Picks where you get to share your movie picks for each topic presented every Thursday!  Based on the theme presented each week, you can pick up to 3 to 5 movies and explain why you picked those movies! This meme is being hosted by Wandering through the Shelves!

This week's theme is: Numbers in Title!

Wow! I may have watched many movies over the years, but I rarely watched movies that have numbers in the titles (unless they were sequels).  So, I'll be listing movies that have numbers in the titles that I haven't seen yet, but I would like to see someday!

1. Se7en

What's In The Box! GIF - Seven BradPitt Box - Discover & Share GIFs

Two detectives, a rookie and a veteran, hunt a serial killer who uses the seven deadly sins as his motives.

I've been hearing lots of good things about this movie and even though this movie came out like a decade ago, I still haven't seen it!  I definitely want to see it for the "What's in the Box?" scene!

Sixth Senses GIFs - Get the best GIF on GIPHY

A boy who communicates with spirits seeks the help of a disheartened child psychologist. 

I've heard that this movie was pretty good and creepy at the same time and since I love watching movies that deal with ghosts, I'm definitely interested in checking out this movie!  I especially want to see the "I see dead people" scene!

One Flew Over The Cuckoos Nest GIF - Find & Share on GIPHY

A criminal pleads insanity and is admitted to a mental institution, where he rebels against the oppressive nurse and rallies up the scared patients.

After watching Jack Nicholson's acting in "The Shining," I just had to give this movie a try and see just how good Jack Nicholson is in this role!  He seems to have a penchant for taking on roles where he acts insane!




  1. We match on the last one, now you just need to watch it! I love your other two picks. Se7en is rightfully popular today.

  2. Se7en is the title of the week it seems. I saw it in the theatre and it's gripping and intense but also rather grisly and depressing. Still it's worth seeing.

    The Sixth Sense is a marvelous watch. Try and go in knowing as little as possible about it. The boy and both Bruce Willis and Toni Collette are excellent.

    Cuckoo's Nest is quite the experience and Nicholson gives it his all but I can't say I hold much affection for the film.

    I hadn't realized until I started to look for picks how many films with numbers in the title I'd seen. I chose one each from different genres for variety.

    5 Card Stud (1968)-In the town of Rincon, Colorado in 1880 a gambler is caught cheating by his tablemates and in the heat of the moment lynched despite the efforts of one of their number Van Morgan (Dean Martin) to stop it. Disgusted Morgan leaves town but returns when he hears that some of the other players have been killed in grisly fashion. Upon his arrival he finds the hamlet taut with tensions and a somewhat sinister Baptist minister Rev. Rudd (Robert Mitchum) who carries a pistol in his bible. The situation only becomes more fraught as others of the lynch mob fall victim one by one and Morgan races to solve the mystery. Superior western with a great cast which beside the leads includes Inger Stevens and Roddy McDowell.

    11 Harrowhouse (1974)-Small-time diamond merchant Howard Chesser (Charles Grodin) is offered the chance to purchase and cut a large diamond by its owner Clyde Massey (Trevor Howard). But when the diamond is stolen he is blackmailed into pulling off a heist at "The System," located in London at 11 Harrowhouse with the help of his girlfriend Maren (a stunning Candice Bergen). Assisted by inside man, Watts (James Mason) they navigate an elaborate network of defenses to carry out the robbery. Sleek, stylish caper film.

    45 Years (2015)-Kate Mercer (an extraordinary Charlotte Rampling) and her husband Geoff (an almost as fine Tom Courtenay) are planning a party to celebrate their 45th wedding anniversary. One week before the celebration a letter arrives for Geoff with news that the body of Katya, his first love has been discovered frozen in an icy glacier of the Swiss Alps where she had fallen 50 years ago. Disquieted by the news both start to reexamine the entirety of their relationship and as the party nears there might not be a marriage left to celebrate.

    1. Hmmm...I haven't heard of these movies before, but they all sound interesting!

  3. oh you gotta see Se7en! It's a fantastic movie

    1. Cool! I'm definitely adding it to my movies to watch list!

  4. I haven't seen One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest either as I want to read the novel first but I've seen the other two and you absolutely need to watch both, especially Se7en.

    1. Cool! I'm definitely looking forward to watching Se7en and Sixth Sense!
