So I already posted my favorite actors list, and you guys told me about some awesome actors like Pitt, Depp, Hanks, Willis Et cetera.
Well now I shall eye rape you my top ten movies!
These arent what I believe are the best movies of all time, they are simply the ones i liked the most.
So, lets dispense the bullshit and carry on!
10- Inglorious Basterds
“You know somethin’, Donowitz? I think this might just be my masterpiece.”
This move replaced Shindler’s List on my list.
Is this better then Shindler’s List? No.
I just like seeing Nazis brutally killed over Jewish families being murdered.
That’s just how I roll.
Not to mention every performance in this movie was ace, along with the story and everything about it- just perfect.
“Think of it this way, you’ll go to Heaven”
This is my favorite romance of all time, what a beautiful movie.
I cry every time I watch this movie, especially in the scene in which he gives her a penny.
Whoopy, Swayze and Moore are perfect in this movie, which is why it’s so watchable.
Perfect movie to watch with your romantic partner. R.I.P. Mr. Swayze
“‘Do it’? I did it 35 minutes ago”
This movie in my opinion, is highly underrated.
The little easter eggs, genius dialogue and character psychology makes it the most relevant movie of all time, and imperative for people to not so much watch, but listen to.
Not because of the action scenes, the important part of this movie is the subjective take of each characters point of view on life, war and death. It’s trully revealing to ourselves when we watch it and pay close attention.
“Toruk Makto, I will fly with you.’
The Sky People have sent us a message… that they can take whatever they want. That no one can stop them. Well, we will send them a message. You ride out as fast as the wind can carry you. You tell the other clans to come. Tell them Toruk Makto calls to them! You fly now, with me! My brothers! Sisters! And we will show the Sky People… that they can not take whatever they want! And that this… this is our land!
EVERY MOVIE BEYOND THIS POINT IS VERY WORTHY OF BEING #1… BUT I DID MY BEST TO TRY AND PUT THEM IN ORDER
6- Let The Right One In
“NO!! You can come in! YOU CAN COME IN!”
A movie that shows a touching and rare story about romance, and teaches that romance is not only about what we all think about.
Sometimes a couple can be perfect for each other, and be what each other need in a partner. Even if there are extreme reasons of why you should not be with this person. And trust me, her being a vampire is not even the first thing.
Pay close attention and you will catch a SHOCKING revealing fact about this movie’s character(s).
I had to watch it 4 times to get it but, when I did, I was flabbergasted.
What I found out is something most people that saw it, including critics, did not. And it is actually very surprising and weird in a way. If you guys want me to discuss it let me know.
5- The Departed
“I’m the guy who does his job. You must be the other guy.”
I am a huge fan of cop thrillers, and this movie is just amazing.
The soundtrack, Leo, the rest of the cast, the story. Perfect.
The only thing I did not like was Jack Nicholson and hs over-done performance of his usual “Jack Nicholson” self he intoxicated his character with.
But the rest of this movie was geniu.
4- Training Day
“To protect the sheep you gotta catch the wolf, and it takes a wolf to catch a wolf.”
Like I said, I love these cop movies.
BUT, Ethan Hawke (who is not really big in any other movies) delivers one of the best performances I have ever seen.
Ethan Hawke would be my favorite actor, or on my top ten, if only he were in more movies I saw. But this movie alone was amazing, and he knocked it out of the park.
You really FEEL his frustration, and understand his problems as you watch this movie. And as the “Training day” progresses, you experience his characters maturity and change as the movie goes on.
3- 3:10 To Yuma
“I don’t know. I guess I just wanted you to know… I ain’t stubborn.”
This movie hits the point of moral like no other.
The “shades of gray, in a back and white world” saying comes to mind when watching this movie.
The great thing about this movie, is seeing the way Bale and Crowe’s characters change their behavior towards each other as the movie progresses. Every actor in this movie was great, starting with the main two, and ending with Mr Foster, who nailed it as well.
Also Id like to point out that the soundtrack as the movie ends is epic.
2- The Lion King
“Long live the king!”
This is the most complete movie of my list.
It has romance, action, drama, humor, murder, tragedy, epicness and even a fantastic musical soundtrack to it. All of these things are perfect in this movie.
From the moment the African sun raises in the first scene to the last roar we hear from Simba in the rain- I always cant help but weep.
ANYONE can watch this movie and love it. No matter what the age or genre preference.
1- The Prestige
“Are you watching closely?”
Movies have been around for a century. So coming up with an original story that will truly thrill is a very hard thing to do. Who else to do this, then the genius Christopher Nolan himself.
If you are curious about this movie- be warned: You won’t just watch it once, you will have to watch it several times. I saw it 10 times and found new things about it every time. I still have questions. But at the same time, not senseless and confusing, simply smart.
Not as complete as the Lion King. Not a horror, comedy or romance. Its a straight up mystery. So why is it better then such a complete movie like the Lion King? Because what it did bring to the table was LEGENDARY.
I wasn’t expecting much from this movie, at all. Bu when i walked out of the theater I knew i had to come back and see it again, to make sure i was not hallucinating.
But enough of me!!
What’s your favorite movies?
Post an article on it, comment it, whatever. I wont make fun of you, even if its Twilight (mainly because I liked that too)
