My All-time Favorite Movies (#10-1)

Mar 31, 2013
And here it all ends. This is the final part of the 5 segments of my list and that is "My All-time Favorite Movies". I had a lot of fun giving my opinions on some of the greatest movies ever made. And for those who followed and waited quite a while for every consecutive part, I would like to say thank you and I truly appreciate it. Ok! So, this is the fifth and final part of this list and this top 10 films arguably is the greatest films ever made in the history of filmmaking. If you disagree with the movies in this post, remember that this is my opinion. Not yours, not your neighbor or anyone but my opinion. Anyways, so without further ado, here starts!

10) Requiem For A Dream
The ultimate anti-drug commercial every teenager (and maybe adults too) must watch at least once. It's powerful, very disturbing and the haunting theme of the movie is epic. The ending of the movie was very uncomfortable to watch that I had to cover my eyes because it is very disturbing at instance. A great movie and I recommend this to everyone.

9) Fight Club
The ultimate twisted movie I have ever seen. Not to spoil the ending for those who haven't watched, it's the coolest thing that ever happened to movies that kept you thinking right away. The greatest David Fincher directed movie, which is a classic so no movie geek isn't a movie geek without watching a film and that is Fight Club.

8) Star Wars  
I'm not calling it Episode IV or freaking 'A New Hope' but i'm naming it to its original title, Star Wars. The greatest saga of the sci-fi nerds is one of the many reasons why they call me a geek. I'm confidently loving this film since childhood and for many, many generations have passed. This movie will never go old.

7) The Graduate
It's dramatic, it's romantic and very quirky at times. It also features my all-time favorite song "Sounds of Silence" and my favorite actor, Dustin Hoffman. The Graduate is one of the best example of a perfect teen movie without being funny or crude. It is a well-done artsy romantic drama that still is appealing up to now.

6) 2001: A Space Odyssey
The greatest sci-fi movie ever made. 2001 is too complicated and hard to watch but it is one hell of a smart and genius work of filmmaking once you get the theme it implies. To be honest, it took me 5 times patiently to watch this really great movie. Stanley Kubrick is a genius!

5) Forrest Gump
Call me a creep and too cheesy but I thought this movie was too good. Too good for a movie that I never control myself but to watch this repeatedly and had a fun time with it. It's a long movie I get it, but it's too entertaining and fun to watch without worrying about the 2 1/2 hour running time it had.

4) The Lord of the Rings
No specific order of the films. I thought all three films were squeezed into one gigantic, epic 12 hour movie. It has everything every casual moviegoer wants. Whether you want Drama, action, romance, comedy, adventure, thriller, etc., Peter Jackson had it for you.

3) Pulp Fiction
It's no surprise that Pulp Fiction hits the number 3 spot. It's equally well-directed, amazingly written and perfectly acted by the whole cast. Its got Uma Thurman, John Travolta, Bruce Willis, Harvey Keitel, and Samuel L. Jackson being on their best roles yet in this addictive 154 minute epic crime drama.

2) The Social Network
I know what you are thinking. "Really? The Social Network at number 2?". I couldn't take it even more because i'm actually in love with this movie. Everything David Fincher is a great movie and this one turns out to be my favorite of him. It's superbly acted by Jesse Eisenberg, Andrew Garfield and Justin Timberlake, and the score haunts you every scene. This is the movie where you should never crunch your popcorn and pay attention for this 2 hour war of words.

1) A Clockwork Orange
My first post/ review in this site is A Clockwork Orange (I actually deleted that post so I can write an updated in-depth review about it). Not only it is a great film, it is the greatest one ever made. It is too disturbing from the fact that they banned the film to several countries. This movie features a classic score from Beethoven that really paired well with the ultraviolence and sex and drugs occurred on screen. If there's a film that will have your attention and change your attitude, this is the film. The theme and message of this movie is something to be passed for more generations to come.

Finally!! I finished it. Again, thank you for reading and following this list throughout the days and don't worry. I will be back for my review of Oblivion and Iron Man 3. Hope you have a great week ahead and may the force be with you always! Bye!
