    Solid picks. My number 1 is also 12 Angry Men.

  3. In no particular order? There must be order in the court!

    Nice list. And nice to see “And Justice for All”. I love the beginning of that move with the kids voice over of The Pledge of Allegiance”. It also started my love affair with the BMW 2002.

    What about “A Time To Kill”?

    • dbmoviesblog says:

      ‘A Time to Kill’? Is it better than other John Grisham book adaptations, for example, ‘The Firm’, ‘The Rainmaker’, ‘The Client’ etc.? I included ‘Runaway Jury’ because I thought the film was tremendously entertaining, and I love films/books with the specific focus on jurors, e.g. their deliberations, hence, there is ‘The Juror’ on my list as well.

  5. It’s great to see 12 Angry Men top of the list. An absolute masterpiece!
