Top 100 Movies Everyone Must See. Part two


We continue to talk about 100 films that everyone should watch. The brightest and most memorable films, everything that can be called the golden fund of world cinema.

In the last part we looked at imperishable hits of the twentieth century and now we continue our top. But calling the next films more recent will probably not come out.

Nicefellas (1990)

In 1990, in the same year as The Godfather 3, Martin Scorsese's film Nicefellas was released. It was this film that revived the audience's interest in films about the mafia for at least two more decades. Ray Liotta starring Henry Hill, Robert De Nico, Lorraine Bracco, Joe Pesci and Paul Sorvino are far from being a complete list of this landmark film's golden team. A young, promising guy once takes a step in the wrong direction, but you can't change your life.

"As far back as I can remember, I've always wanted to be a gangster. To me, being a gangster meant much more than being the President of the United States." This is what the protagonist says about himself. At the end of the film, the viewer witnesses the destructive events in the life of Henry and his "family".

It would seem that we are ready to think that Henry will repent, but this is not so. Whatever we think of him, no matter how inveterate a gangster he is, the film makes us think about the questions of a person's destiny, the fate that he chooses for himself and whether there is an opportunity to change the course of events when, figuratively speaking, the train has already picked up speed .

Groundhog Day (1992)

"Groundhog Day" is not just a classic that managed to capture the monotony and repetition of a person's life with incredible accuracy, but it is a film that also managed to wake up the viewer and show him that one should not resignedly accept and put up with the dreary-annoying repetitive everyday life .

This film was the sixth in a row that the duo Harold Ramis as director and Bill Murray as an actor worked in tandem, but it also turned out to be the last for this successful duo of two Hollywood masters. After that movie, Ramis and Murray stopped working together.

The film was shot in 1992 in Woodstock and was released in 1993. Immediately after the premiere, the film received deservedly high reviews from film critics and was included in the US national film register.

There is probably no point in reminding readers of the plot of the film, it is so famous that it has already become a byword, and everyone knows the expression "Groundhog Day" now. It is only necessary to say that despite the apparent ease of the plot, this is a very philosophical film and it can be watched a large number of times in order to find a new meaning for yourself again and again.

The Shining (1980)

The Shining is one of Stanley Kubrick's most controversial works. Directors like David Cronenberg noticed that Kubrick didn't know how to make horror films. And yet this film ranks high in the ranking of the best horror films. It is based on the novel of the same name by Stephen King, which in itself says a lot.

The film was released in 1980 and then there was hardly anything worse than a tape based on King's book. The events take place in the hotel, where a married couple with a small child comes to work for the winter. The husband is trying to write a book, but the work is clearly not progressing, and he becomes more and more obsessed and aggressive and gradually loses his mind, starting to chase his wife around the hotel, trying to kill her.

If you're a Jack Nicholson fan, this is one of his best and most terrifying movie roles.

Jaws (1975)

Any child remembers the movie that first made him freeze with horror. For the very best, check out Jurassic Park or Steven Spielberg's Jaws.

Filmed in 1974 and released in 1975, the film about the man-eating shark became the highest grossing in history until the movie "Star Wars" was released. Jaws has received three Academy Awards (Oscars) and many other honorary awards. Subsequently, 2 more sequel films were released, but without Spielberg's participation.

Viewers may be interested to know that a real shark was involved in some of the scenes during the filming. And one day, acting completely against the script, the shark really began to break into the cage where the stuntman was sitting. Despite the fact that there was a rather dangerous situation, we managed to shoot these frames. They not only entered the film, but after that it was decided to change the script of the film itself. As you can see, it was not in vain that it was rewritten. The film turned out to be great!

Alien (1982)

For children, the movie "Alien" will be a fascinating story, as well as a valuable lesson about not relying on the opinion of the public and superiors for everything.

"Alien" is a story about friendship between an alien creature that was forgotten by their own on Earth and an earthly boy. Filmed in 1982 by the same well-known to us Steven Spielberg, the picture won 4 Oscars and even surpassed "Star Wars" at the box office in the 80s. It was an amazing achievement for the film.

The shot in which the boy Elliot and the alien are flying on a bicycle against the background of the moon has become one of the most memorable not only in this film, but in the entire history of science fiction films ever created. If you haven't seen it yet, it's time to take a look.

Beauty and the Beast (1991)

The 1991 adaptation of "Beauty and the Beast" is one of the diamonds in the crown of Disney animation. The film also became the first animation film to receive an Academy Award nomination and an Academy Award nomination for Best Soundtrack. The story told in the cartoon is simple and everyone knows. The prince, whom the evil sorceress turned into a Beast, can only return to his normal form after he is loved as he is.

Some viewers and film critics are trying to find more hidden meanings in this story, but this hardly needs to be done, because the film is about love. Julie Andrews and Judy Garland became the prototypes of Belle's image on the screen. The film was made with high quality and beautiful for which many thanks to Gary Truesdale and Kirk Wise, because we have replenished the piggy bank of Hollywood classics.

Singing in the Rain (1952)

One of the best musicals in the history of cinema. Gene Kelly acted not only as a director, but also as a leading actor. This film is also a biography of cinematography itself - the era of transition from silent films to sound films. It tells the story of this transition. In addition, the film is included in the list of the best films of the last 100 years and, of course, the best musicals.

It is interesting to note that Debbie Reynolds, who was selected for the role in the film primarily because of her young age (she was then only 19 years old), did not know how to dance at all. But luck smiled at her, because Fred Astaire was on the site. He helped the girl to cope with the role. Reynolds herself said that in her life she had 2 most difficult things that she had to go through - carrying a child and shooting in the movie Singing in the Rain.

Cold Blooded Luke (1967)

Filmed in 1967 by Steven Rosenberg with Paul Newman in the title role, the film is still relevant and the audience still does not stop sympathizing with the main character of the film, nicknamed in prison "cold-blooded Luke" and wondering what the filmmakers wanted to show us through Luke's character: an indefatigable thirst for struggle, a character that could not be broken by anything, incredible endurance, a struggle with himself and the system. The film can be divided into several conceptual levels. Much will depend on the viewer himself how he will perceive the film.

The film is also listed in the national registry of the best films, and George Kennedy received an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor. If you have watched The Shawshank Redemption, then you will surely like this movie too. People who cannot be broken. Personalities who remain them until the very end, no matter what happens. It is a hymn to the strength of the human spirit and that even the system cannot break it.

Only girls in jazz (1959)

"There are only girls in jazz" or "Some like it hot" is a musical comedy by Billy Wilder with the participation of Tony Curtis, Jack Lemmon and Marilyn Monroe. The incredible trio will forever remain in the memory of lovers of classic cinema, and the phrase "no one is perfect" from the film's final scene was included in the list of the most cited American cinema.

The film is set in the era of Prohibition in the United States, the heyday of gang warfare. Two young men, trying to hide from persecution, disguise themselves as girls and join the women's orchestra, which is touring the country.

For those viewers who are not fans of black and white films, but love comedy, it must be said that, despite its visual inconsistency, in some way the film is replete with jokes and comic situations, which will give odds to any modern comedy.

Forrest Gump (1994)

Forrest Gump was directed by Robert Zemeckis' 9th feature film and received 6 Academy Awards, including Best Picture. Tom Hanks received the Best Actor award. The film was generally lucky in terms of awards, as it received more than 30 of them worldwide and is currently considered by many critics as the best film ever made. It's not about the mafia like The Godfather or Nicefellas, or life in prison like The Shawshank Redemption or Cold Blooded Luke. "Forrest Gump" is a film about the ordinary life of an ordinary person, however, in the film the average person is represented by a mentally retarded young man named Forrest Gump. He talks about his life, sitting on a bus stop bench, and the viewer sees these scenes on the screen. This is how we learn about the main events in Forrest's life.

Many people perceive this film as a serious drama with elements of a romantic story. In fact, there is much more from satire in it than from any other genre. You just need to look closely and everything will become clear. The book on which it was filmed is much more a real satire of American society, but the film did not miss the satirical moment. Watch it carefully and you will understand the essence.
