The last but one movie countdown post. Just 10 more movies (in other word 1 more post) to go. I m gonna miss these posts :(. I have enjoyed writing the movie posts a lot. I got to watch all my favorite movies again. I don’t know what to write about later… may be Bollywood movie countdown :P. What say? Anyways here are the next 20 –
30) Jaws (1975)
The movie that got me fascinated and scared of Sharks at the same time (the scare I got over, the fascination not yet). This movie is beautifully directed, acted and scripted. This movie’s chillingly, thrilling and gives you goose bumps. It’s a sure Masterpiece that has been tough to match up to.
29) The Hangover (2009)
When u see a movie 5 times in a row for 2 continuous days and yet never get bored but laugh out loud every single time as if its the first time, its more than evident the movie is funny. The Hangover is one the best comedies I have seen. The scene with the Tiger in the bathroom is the best. Bradley Cooper is sexy and he looks HOT in the movie. Zach Galifianakis is HILARIOUS! I really love this movie; I don’t care if other people girls disagree.
28) The Sound of Music (1965)
Its said that its one of the best musicals ever made but I’m not sure about that actually. I like the music no doubt and Julie Andrews has a awesome voice. Its good musical movie but to me what appeals more and makes it my favorite is the plot. The plot is very real, very possible and very beautiful. The acting is amazing too especially by Julie Andrews is splendid.
27) Pretty Woman (1990)
This is such an awesome movie that you never have enough of it. It is very difficult to find people who dont like this movie. The chemistry between Richard Gere and Julia Roberts is so good. Its like a modern Cinderella story where the girl’s life transforms from rags to riches due a lovely Prince Charming. This in no doubt is THE BEST Julia Roberts movie.
26) Up (2009)
This is such a sweet movie. The old man in this movie reminds me so much of my Grand Pa, not that my Grand Pa was ever grumpy old man, infact he was just the opposite. Anyways, this yet another master piece from Pixar is so sweet, cute and adorable. The relationship between Kurt (the kid) and the gruffly old man is so real and heart warming. Even though the love story of the Carl (old man) and his wife (Ellie) is for hardly 5 minutes… it’s my favorite part of the movie. Their love story is ‘Aww’.
25) Ghost (1990)
From the 1st time I ever saw Ghost it has become my favorite. There is something about this movie that’s magical. The whole love transcends even after death is my kinds. The chemistry between Demi Moore and Patrick Swayze is the best onscreen chemistry in my opinion. You can feel the love they share every time they look into each others eyes. This movie is romantic as well as funny with an engrossing plot. The song ‘O My Love… My Darling, I m hungry for your touch’ I mean ‘Unchained Melody’ is just the perfect icing this yummy cake required :).
24) The Dark Knight (2008)
I m not much into Batman and Superman movies as I like Spiderman (I love the spiderman movie too) better :P. But this movie is an exception for 3 main reasons – Heath Ledger, Heath Ledger and Christopher Nolan. To be very frank when I 1st saw the movie I dint like it much, I only liked Heath Ledger but it was the 2nd time around that I enjoyed this movie more. The movie is brilliant but I think its cause of Heath Ledger that its my favorite.
23) Finding Nemo (2003)
This is the 1st Pixar animated movie I saw (I know they had come up with great movies like – Toy story 1 & 2 and Monsters, Inc. before this but this was my first) and loved. It’s only after watching this movie that I decided to see more movies by them. This movie is funny, touching, brilliant, cute and lovable. The anguish of the character Marlin is real and you can feel it. Every minute of the movie I was cheering for Marlin to find his boy Nemo. Oh, I liked the concept of vegetarian sharks too ;).
22) Pirates of Caribbean (2003)
Ah! Johnny Depp… what can I say about him? He is so seductive that I could hardly concentrate on anything else expect for him… I dint even bother noticing someone like Orlando Bloom. Depp in this move is EXTRAORDINARY… his performance as Jack Sparrow is his best till date. The way he walks, talks and lives the character of Captain Jack Sparrow screams GENIUS. Ofcourse Orlando Bloom, Keira Knightley and Geoffrey Rush are brilliant too but it’s Depp who steals the show. The story Ofcourse is great… I have always been fascinated by Pirate’s life. The adventure of this movie appeals to me. The 1st and 2nd parts are my favorite of the series and can’t wait for 4th.
21) Toy Story Series (1995, 1999, 2010)
If you ask me to pick one favorite among these three movies, I just can’t. Each of these movies is marvelous and as good as its counterparts. Each and every movie has a great story and equally brilliant voice cast that brings these characters alive. I especially love the voices of Tom Hanks and Tim Allen; they as Woody and Buzz are perfect and not in 100 years could you find someone better. In my opinion the reason the movies work so well is because every movie has a very strong, gripping and moving plot that strikes a cord with audiences. Ah! How I love Pixar animations!
20) The Lord of the Rings Trilogy (2001, 02, 03)
I guess you would hardly find anyone who din’t like LOTR. The movies are fantastic and anyone can vouch for that. The direction, the acting, the plot (even with few changes from the book) is top notch. These are probably few of the best fantasy movies ever made.
19) Goodwill Hunting (1997)
I m one of those people who loved this movie for its realistic script. The character of Will Hunting is very genuine. The script beautifully touches on the psychology of the human brain and our behavior. I m so glad that they decided to make this like they did… A beautiful, touching and heart warming movie rather than a thriller which they had 1st intended to. The sheer brilliance of the script and the acting make this movie my favorite.
18) Pulp Fiction (1994)
This is that movie that made me a fan Quentin Tarantino and that made me watch his other movies. I will go ahead and say it I think that Quentin Tarantino is one the most intelligent film maker I have seen. I love his trademark story lines… they add that punch to the movies. Pulp Fiction is the best movie of his I have seen (haven’t seen Inglorious Basterds yet). The acting and the story are top notch. And for me this whole movie is like a beautiful work of art. And till date I haven’t stopped wondering what the hell was in that briefcase? Any idea?
17) Rear Window (1954)
Out of all the Alfred Hitchcock movies I have seen this is my most favorite. This movie also stars my favorite actor James Stewart (so do many other Hitchcock movies). I saw this movie only recently when one of my friends told me that Disturbia (also another great movie was in my list but got cut in last minute) was loosely based on this movie. This movie is funny, well acted and directed (duh), thrilling and suspenseful. Again I would say one of the best Hitchcock movies.
16) Inception (2010)
I have already gone gaga over the movie in my review here. I loved, loved and loved this movie. This movie is work of a genius with visual treat, intriguing plot and the climax, the acting and Ofcourse my Leonardo Dicaprio. One of the best 2010 movies.
15) Casablanca (1942)
What can I say about this movie that hasn’t already been said? It’s rated as one of the best movies ever made and also the most romantic movie. And this opinion isn’t by just one person but by all most everyone who has seen this movie. I m no different. I vouch for what they say. It’s a beautiful movie in every way.
14) The Godfather (1972)
Yes, I love the book more. Yes, I think the book is better than the movie but I never ever said that The Godfather is a bad movie. Its one of the best movies I have seen. This is a brilliantly acted movie. Every member of the cast gives such strong performances that you can’t help but sit up and notice the movie and build a dam of appreciation. It’s a brilliantly crafted and directed movie. The best part about the 2nd movie is that Robert De Niro and Al Pacino come together. I haven’t seen the third part though.
13) Some like It Hot (1959)
This movie is the best comedy movie I have seen. It’s a classic masterpiece. The humor, the witty dialogues, the plot (which has been used and reused so many times now), the acting… everything about this movie yells out AWESOME. The chemistry between Marilyn Monroe, Tony Curtis, and Jack Lemmon is too brilliant. And the lines between Curtis and Lemmon are epic. This movie is one of those everlasting movies that would never be too old to watch.
12) The Silence of the Lambs (1991)
A movie that I avoided watching because some people said it was a horror movie about cannibals and if I saw that movie they would eat me too. And trust me I so naïve that I bought that. It was 2 years ago that I dared to sit and watch this movie. I was so scared at first but as the movie went on I realized I was stupid and also that this movie was more than astonishing. The acting was amazing (no wonder they won ‘best actor and best actress’ awards), the plot is absorbing and Direction is speckles. Its one the best thrillers/ suspense movies I have see without a doubt.
11) Sixth Sense (1999)
One of the most surprising, thrilling, chilling movie ending I have ever seen. The end of this movie just blew me away. The acting by Bruce Willis is top notch. The plot of the movie is intriguing and makes you really think about the world you are really living in and the world that you see. It never once gave me the scare but gave me the chills. And more importantly it left a long lasting impression on me :).
