Top 8 Best Movies of all time : What makes a movie so amazing to the point it is considered as one of the Top 8 Best Movies of all time ? Why do some pass the test of time while others slowly (or rather quickly) lose their value?
In some films it is the emotion that creates the story. Sometimes an actor’s performance is so unforgettable that it draws our attention. Occasionally a film is so breathtaking that it cannot be forgotten.
I’ve put together a collection of the 30 best films ever made. To warn you in advance, this is not the usual film snob list of black-and-white classics and overseas films to demonstrate my knowledge of classic cinema. These are the films we watch because we want to, not because we are asked to.
8. Avatar (2009)
Avatar is one of the most beautiful films ever made. Even people who complain about special effects in films dropped their Avatar is one of the most beautiful films ever made.
This film brought modern film technology into a new era and ushered in the age of stereoscopic 3D. In addition to its beauty, the film offers a cross-species love story and a social message. Avatar is a must for every movie fan.
Best Quote: Jake Sully – (Sam Worthington) “I became a Marine for the hardship.. Told myself that I can pass any test a man can pass. – All I ever wanted was a single thing worth fighting for.”
7. The Hurt Locker (2008)
This is due to the war. What is it good for? Fantastic films. Hurt Locker is an exciting look at the realities of the Iraq war and modern warfare in general. It is not a propaganda film. It doesn’t take sides. It focuses on the decisions of soldiers, especially SFC William James (Jeremy Renner).
Hurt Locker is both a war film and a technically sound thriller. I don’t believe in war, but I think Hurt Locker is the second best war film ever made, showing the good and bad in every soldier.
Best Quote: SFC James – “You love playing with that. You love playing with all your stuffed animals.
You love your Mommy…your Daddy. You love your pajamas. You love everything, don’t ya? Yea. But you know what, buddy? As you get older… some of the things you love might not seem so special anymore.”
6. The Notebook (2004)
In the interest of full disclosure, I have to admit that I’ve never seen The Notebook before. The reason I know it’s a great movie is that every time I tell a woman I’ve never seen him, she tries to convince me to watch it.
The basic requirement is that a boy falls in love with a girl. They have a budding romance, some conflicts stand in the way and they end up together when they are older. This film is the bar where many women measure a man.
Best Quote: Noah (Ryan Gosling) says, “I am nothing special; just a common man with common thoughts, and I’ve led a common life. There are no monuments dedicated to me and my name will soon be forgotten. But in one respect I have succeeded as gloriously as anyone who’s ever lived: I’ve loved another with all my heart and soul; and to me, this has always been enough.”
5. Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl (2003)
When the teaser for this film first appeared in theaters, we had all doubts. How in the world could Disney turn a below-average ride into a two-hour epic? Three words: captain. Jack. Sparrow. Johnny Depp’s role as a drunk, clever, and shockingly resourceful captain without a ship made pirates an instant classic. With a rounded cast, beautiful sets, and a brilliant blend of comedy, action, and drama, Curse of The Black Pearl is everything we love about Disney, a rare gem for live action.
Best Quote: Captain Jack Sparrow “Me, I’m dishonest. And a dishonest man you can always trust to be dishonest. Honestly. It’s the honest ones you want to watch out for. Because you can never predict when they’re going to do something incredibly… stupid.”
4. Best Movies of all time – Love & Basketball (2000)
While many love movies are difficult for men to watch, Love & Basketball helps involve men in this “chick flick” genre by incorporating an underlying sports theme. Quincy (Omar Epps) and Monica (Sanaa Lathan) meet as children on the basketball court, and their relationship between hate and love overlaps with their lives when they live their individual dreams of a professional ball.
