I wrote about my Top 10 books here so now it’s time to write down my Top 10 movie list (in a random order):
1. The Mission by Roland Joffé.
It’s a story of a XVIII century Jesuits protecting South American Natives. It’s sad but beautiful picture about human nature. If you like Robert De Niro and/or Jeremy Irons you have to see it. Oryginal soundtrack was composed by Ennio Morricone. A must-see.
2. The Mist by Frank Darabont.
This is a classic Stephen King adaptation which is not super good picture. But I love it because it’s ending that is more than a stunning one.
3. Casablanca by Michael Curtiz.
It’s one of the best movies of all times. No need to say more about it. A must-must-see.
4. Blade Runner by Ridley Scott.
This movie is a mile stone for a cyberpunk genre. A great visualisation of a great story by Philip K. Dick.
5. Forbidden Planet by Fred M. Wilcox.
A sad story about human nature placed in a sci-fi genre. Not a high-end movie but… everything is great about it.
6. Fight Club by David Fincher.
A story about revolution, about everyday survival in a world that is not normal. Great!
7. Das Boot by Wolfgang Petersen.
World War II in a submarine. The original and true story about horrifying life of the crew. 6 hours of beautiful picture.
8. The Hunter by Daniel Nettheim.
I cried. Love it.
9. District 9 by Neill Blomkamp.
A story about us as a people. Our nature and our souls. It’s not a sci-fi.
10. Children of Man by Alfonso Cuarón.
Pre-post-apocalyptic vision of our present/future world. This is one of the most underrated movies. Must see!
Of course there are many more – all Star Trek (original series and new), Star Wars, Godfather… but these 10 made me think about me as a human.
