As a kid of 90s, I usually saw the movies of Jackie Chan, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sylvester Stallone, Jet Li, etc., English movies provide different perspective, global view etc., Mission Impossible, Speed, Cliffhanger, Rambo series, James Bond movies (Sean Connery & Pierce Brosnan) these are different action movies amazed me always. Later I started watching the classical movies like Ben Hur, Cleopatra, Ten Commandments, The Bible story, Clint Eastwood movies which are branded as cowboy movies.
Some of the classic movies indeed can be mentioned are Casablanca, Lawrence of Arabia, Gandhi, 12 Angry men, The Great Escape, Charlie Chaplin movies, Mask, Disney’s Animated movies, Star wars, Jaws, King Kong, One flew over Cuckoo’s nest, Raging Bull, Rocky, etc.,
I may not watched all the great movies, but this list will provide to the best of my interest,
8. The Silence of the lambs
This movie introduced me with Sir. Anthony Hopkins, later that I saw the movie called Mask of Zorro of Antonio Banderas, Catherine Zeta Jones with Anthony Hopkins. This movie is an crime and horror movie, which Jodie foster is a FBI Trainee to catch the Hannibal and serial killer.
When I watched the Speed 2, the trailer of Titanic was at interval. I am bored with ship tragedy and action movies. I thought this movie is also about the same. Some time later, Oscar awards announced, which provided 11 awards which had tie with Ben-Hur movie. Suddenly the craze about Titanic started. The song “My heart will go on” popularized, my worry is about Di Caprio, he never won the Academy Awards for the Best Actor Criteria.
6. Citizen Kane
This film shows, how the Journalist can change the things. The advertisements, catchy words, the popularity, marketing what-else from this movie. By the way what is the Rose-bud in that chair.
5. Fight Club
The film about Split personality, the man who wants to live with his wishes., meets his split personality believing he is the other person who wants to achieve the same goals, what he wants to. Director David Fincher who also directed the movies like Se7en, The social network, The curious case of Benjamin Button, most of the films are done with Brad Pitt.
Marlyn Brando’s few moments in this picture donned the role. Al Pacino who acted as his son, fighting with his fears, winning and become a Godfather. Part 2 and Part 3 didn’t given the magic of Part 1. Sicily island beautifully captured by Coppola.
3. Kill Bill
How to tell the novel in the movie, ask Quentin Tarantino, he makes poems in his movies. What a brilliance, with good passion, no body can beat Quentin Tarantino. Uma Thurman given a justice to her role. The movie with all cold blood, killings, the music, the direction makes wow. Tarantino’s other movies are Django Unchained, Reservoir Dogs, Pulp fiction etc.,
2. Forrest Gump
Why all the great movies are done by Tom Hanks, in this movie the story is about, one didn’t want to be genius to do the things. War field hero, Ping pong champion, Successful Entrepreneur, Celebrity what not. He done a great role in this movie.
1. The Shawshank Redemption
A successful banker’s life changed drastically after his wife and lover killed. Once he gives the idea of saving the tax to the jailor, the news spread all over to the other jailors, he make those black money to save in one account, un-noticeably he escapes from the jail and gets their money in his account. Narration of this story is awesome, Morgan Freeman voice is impeccable in this movie. Wonderful story telling, making the audience at the edge of the seat, which adds the fantasy.
Some of the movies I need to mention are, 12 Angry men, Schindler’s list, Toy Story, Mission Impossible, The Good, bad and Ugy, Goodfellas, The Usual Suspects, Intouchables, Spiderman, Superman, Batman series, Matrix & Slum-dog Millionaire etc.,
