10 must-watch Hollywood movies before you die

10 must-watch Hollywood movies before you die

The fact that Hollywood dominates the global commercial film screens, it is their popularity with the global audience that leaves room for a large number of different points of discussion, whether it is the creative milieu of the industry with its famous actors, directors, and producers, or whether it is the history of film itself, such as the creation and production of it.

Hollywood has produced various masterpieces in the past and is continuing to do so.

I’ve have compiled a list of “10 must-watch Hollywood movies before you die”

10. The Prestige

This is a very entertaining and thought-provoking film, and there is plenty of foreshadowing. Watch closely and watch it twice. I honestly don’t think Christopher Nolan would be capable of linear storytelling if his life depended on it, but he is a master of this adapted material. In the end, I could only go with – “Brilliant”

9. Saving Private Ryan

Saving Private Ryan is a military movie based during World War II. This film is an absolute masterpiece. It shows that war isn’t always glamorous. You couldn’t watch it without crying, jumping, gasping, screaming, laughing, and cringing.

8. Forrest Gump

Quite simply, the greatest film ever made. The beauty of the film is how Forrest Gump not only shares his innocence and purity with others, including the audience, he also manages to retain that innocence and purity through some very difficult times. 

See it, enjoy it, think about it, see it again.

7. The Godfather

Every movie list is incomplete without mentioning “The Godfather”. An engrossing motion picture that features some of the finest editing, cinematography, and performances ever.  Marlon Brando carries the anchor of this movie, but Al Pacino holds it carefully. The Godfather may most aptly be described as an obituary of humanity, a requiem of mankind, owing to the pervasive violence and the brutality that it portrays in an utmost sanguinary fashion. In a nutshell, the movie has transcended all the limits of mortality only to achieve apotheosis.

This Movie is an Offer You Can’t Refuse.

6. Fight Club

The film gives a great message on psychology. But the main purpose is to show what level shambles of today’s youth. One of the most important elements of the film I’d say the mystery. Indeed, for someone with no knowledge of the subject monitors and film for the first time in a very difficult prediction about the end of the film

5. Schindler’s List

Schindler’s List is a film about Oskar Schindler, a German businessman who saved the lives of more than a thousand mostly Polish-Jewish refugees during the Holocaust by employing them in his factories. In the movie, Schindler is a greedy German businessman. Then he becomes unlikely humanitarian amid his exposure of the barbaric Nazi reign when he feels compelled to turn his factory into a refuge for Jews. Based on the true story, he managed to save about 1100 Jews from being gassed at the Auschwitz concentration camp.

Filmed in black and white, this story certainly shows the shades of gray that is the duality of man

4. Titanic

One of the highest-grossing movies of all time for a reason, Titanic is the movie that propelled Leonardi DiCaprio to superstardom. This movie plays on my emotions more than almost any other. My only regret is not seeing it in the theatre, where I think it would have been so much more impressive.

3. Interstellar

Interstellar is incredibly exciting. Starting from the very first frame and ending with the closing credits, Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar will absorb you completely, forcing to stare at the screen during the whole action, because it’s all so circuses and interesting that escape becomes physically impossible. 

“Interstellar” was the most beautiful cinematic experience of my life, both visually and from a musical point of view. I got out of the cinema shaken and moved. And I couldn’t wait to listen to the music again.

“Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night… Rage, Rage Against The Dying Of The Light.”

2. Inception

Inception will simply blow your mind. It is a nearly perfect and highly original film that holds your attention until the credits roll. It is said that Christopher Nolan spent ten years writing his screenplay for “Inception”. I’ll say no more, except that Inception rewards the attention it demands.

1. The Shawshank Redemption

Highest rated movie on IMDb with 9.3/10, The Shawshank Redemption is not your average Hollywood flick. Actually, it redeems Hollywood.

For me what really makes this film one of the best is the message of eternal hope it conveys throughout. The never ever give up hope attitude of the main character so well conveyed by Tim Robbins. The ending is just spine-tingling every time I see it, no matter how many times I have seen it.

The absolute greatest movie of all time and the best story ever told!!!
