Monday Movie Meme: Work

For this week, participants of Monday Movie Meme will post movies that is all about work. This week's topic is in connection with Labor Day celebration. Please check out The Bumbles Blog for more of this week's entries.... Hope ya'll have a wonderful Labor Day celebration....

Here's my entry:

Primal Fear
Courtroom thriller about a slick, hotshot lawyer (Richard Gere) who takes the seemingly unwinnable case of a young altar boy (Edward Norton) accused of murdering an eminent catholic priest.

Erin Brockovich
Erin Brockovich is an unemployed single mother, desperate to find a job, but is having no luck. This losing streak even extends to a failed lawsuit against a doctor in a car accident she was in. With no alternative, she successfully browbeats her lawyer to give her a job in compensation for the loss. While no one takes her seriously, with her trashy clothes and earthy manners, that soon changes when she begins to investigate a suspicious real estate case involving the Pacific Gas & Electric Company.

The Interpreter
Escalating events begin when U.N. interpreter Silvia Broome alleges that she has overheard a death threat against an African head of state, spoken in a rare dialect few people other than Silvia can understand. With the words "The Teacher will never leave this room alive," in an instant, Silvia's life is turned upside down as she becomes a hunted target of the killers. Placed under the protection of federal agent Tobin Keller, Silvia's world only grows more nightmarish.

Top Gun
Maverick is a hot pilot. When he encounters a pair of MiGs over the Persian Gulf, his wingman is clearly outflown and freaks. On almost no fuel, Maverick is able to talk him back down to the Carrier. When his wingman turns in his wings, Maverick is moved up in the standings and sent to the Top Gun Naval Flying School. There he fights the attitudes of the other pilots and an old story of his father's death in combat that killed others due to his father's error. Maverick struggles to be the best pilot, stepping on the toes of his other students and in a different way to Charlie, a civilian instructor to whom he is strongly attracted.

The X Files
This television series follows the adventures and lives of FBI agents investigating those cases that involve the paranormal or previously unsolved (especially by conventional means). FBI Special Agents Mulder, Scully, Doggett and Reyes work to uncover forces within the United States of America government that would violate people's rights, alien creatures and monsters alike that attack, and other mysteries.

Not much a movie watcher. I like to watch them at home instead of the theaters, so I can pause it, run to the bathroom and maybe refill my wine glass. lol

I followed your link from link from blog, and noticed your post about it a month back. Have you had an assignment yet from them?

I have 2 similar things I'm a part of but the assignments are few and far between so I'm wondering whether or not it's worth it to try another one. Also wondering if that's allowed, that is to be a part of several paid to blog, write reviews for pay.

Traveling Suitcase
you don't seem to allow name and url, only the generic blogger/google thing.
