Buddy Film

Paul Newman and Robert Redford didn't invent the concept of buddies, but in Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid and The Sting they embodied the easy rapport that would come to define the buddy film. Sometimes it's two women on the run, a pair of unemployed and often-wasted actors, or two metalheads from Aurora, Illinois, but whatever the configuration, buddies are here to stay.

Speed

Directed by Jan de Bont

Action Thriller - Rated PG13 - 116 Minutes - 1994

Nearly 30 years later, Speed still kicks ass. Director Jan de Bont excels at keeping the intensity high and the stakes obvious, even in the non-bus sections that viewers often forget about, like the opening elevator sequence or the final chase on a train. Dennis Hopper nails the "disembodied villain on the phone" role a year before Jeremy Irons would do the same in Die Hard With a Vengeance, and Keanu and Sandy are probably more fun than Bruce and Sam. (Available on HBO Max)
