Today’s society doesn’t know what good movies are. The majority of people with good taste in movies is dwindling to nothing. You might already be thinking “Wow, that’s a really rude thing to say, Abby” but if you think about it, am i really that wrong? If someone asks you for a movie suggestion, is there really any recent movies that you could suggest without inwardly cringing at yourself? It’s okay, you dont have to answer that, lovely. Because today, I’ve decided to put together a list of the best movies to be brought into existence, and to save you from saying silly things like “I really don’t watch that much TV” or “Well, none that I can think of at the moment, I’ll get back to you”
1.) The fall.
This one is as sad as it is beautiful, and the characters bring such a strong emotional representation that you can’t help watching it until the very end, cradling a box of tissues, and what’s left of your shredded heart after watching something so perfect.
Come on, it’s Grease. Need I say more? Well, even if I don’t, I’m going to, because this movies deserves more praise than it gets. It’s a musical, so it’s automatically cooler than most movies. Not to mention the jaw dropping style of every character.
3.) Phantom of the opera.
Originally a play, this one is just wonderful in every version. But when recommending it to anyone, I always suggest the movie with Gerard Butler and Emmy Rosem, simply because it’s my favorite, and the dark suspense in it will have shivers down your spine the entire time.
4.) The princess bride.
Why? Because it’s a classic, that’s why. It’s witty, it’s funny, and it’s covers all the good stuff without being classified as a “chick-flick”
5.)Every disney movie ever made.
Everybody love disney, I don’t care if you’re 4 or 94, it’s an awesome movie choice no matter which one you decide on, especially the princess ones.
6.) Inside out.
It’s technically classified as a children’s movie, but even I, one who never cries at movies, was balling my eyes out in the best way. This one is both funny, and still a great movie with a lot of meaning to the way people function. I think everyone should watch it, because it teaches a lot of good life lessons, while remaining entertaining for everyone.
7.) Alice in wonderland (by Tim Burton)
It’s a Tim Burton film, there’s not much of an explination needed. It’s eery, colorful, fun, scary, exciting, romantic, suspencefully obvious. It has everything.
8.) The Truman show.
This is one doesn’t make much sense at first, and the ending will have you jumping up and down demanding an explination, or sequel, but you’ll fall in love with it as soon as you get into it.
9.) Basically any marvel movie.
They’re super heroes, they’re villians, they’re agents named Phil Coulson. Every one of them comes together to complete a perfect puzzle of glorious perfection. It doesn’t matter who the characters are, you’ll fall in love with them all. And they’re great no matter what age, gender, or lifestyle you’re from.
I excluded this one from the other marvel movies for two reasons. One; It deserves it’s own time in the spotlight, because it’s such an awesome film. And two; because unlike the others, this one is not a child friendly film, and if you have anything against profanity or innuendo, it’s definitely not for you. But if those two things don’t bother you, then it’s literally the greatest superhero film of all time.
So next time you’re asked to suggest a film, just stick to this simple list, and you won’t go wrong. In fact, you’ll go so right, that you may want to at least watch and own these films yourself. Much love, my lovelies.
