Top Ten Movies That You Need To See

16 Feb

Due to popular demand…

Today we will be doing Top Tens.

So…here is the Top Ten Movies That You Need To See (inluding the trailers of select films)….

10. Food Inc.. I have been trying to convince people to watch this for months now. Unfortunatly they would rather be left in the dark about where their food comes from. Just a little advice…eat your fast food and store-bought goodies before you watch it.

9. I am Sam. Sean Penn, Michelle Pfeiffer, and Dakota Fanning are absolutly amazing in this movie. Penn plays a mentally disabled fellow who loses custody of his daughter and fights the court to get her back. It’s an eye opener and a tear-jerker. Kind of a mix between What’s Eating Gilbert Grape and Gracie’s Choice.

8. Gracie’s Choice. Kristen Bell plays Gracie, who tries to get custody of her younger siblings because her mother is a an alchohalic junkie. Based on a true story, it will definatly touch your heart.

7. Children of a Lesser God. Wow. Fantastic movie. A speech teacher tries to teach all of his Deaf students to speak and he soon falls in love with a Deaf woman who refuses to be taught. Guys beware…this would qualify as a chick flick…

6. The Breakfast Club. If you haven’t seen it yet, shame on you. A classic 80’s movie. 5 teens, all from different social groups, have saturday detention. Cast included a young Molly Ringwald, Judd Nelson, and Anthony Michael Hall. Do I need to say more?

5. Easy A. This movie is not just for teens and young adults. Emma Stone plays this less-than-average highschooler, who uses the school’s gossip grapevine to help her less-than-popular peers advance to a better social standing. Although it kinds seems like a lame movie (due to my lackluster description), but it really is a laugh out loud comedy…

4. Whip It. A girl in a small town in Texas (Ellen Page), finds a way to forget the miserable town she lives in, by joining a roller derby league. There is sport violence, drama, love, disceet, and good ole stupidity. And don’t forget this is Drew Barrymore’s directorial debut.

3. Inception. I’m not one for mind bending movies (that you have to watch twice), but I’ll make an exception for this one. Leonardo DiCaprio, Ellen Page, Joseph Gordon-Levitt…They all play characters who have technology to enter someone’s dream to implant or extract ideas. I know it sounds very sci-fy…

2. Radio. Based on a true story, a high school football coach (Ed Harris), takes a mentally challenged man (Cuba Gooding Jr.) under his wing during football season due to excessive bullying from the players and townspeople. Based in 1976 and directed by Michael Tollin, this movie will surely steal a piece of you heart (and maybe even some tears).

1. Gone With the Wind. I know it is so cliche to put this movie on the list, especially when I put it at number one…but it really is that good. During the Civil War and Reconstruction, a manipulative, childish woman named Scarlett O’Hara (played by Vivien Leigh) carries on a turbulent love affair with Rhett Butler (played by Clark Gable), a rougishly handsome man. This movie falls under three categories, Drama, Romance, and War. Don’t let the 3 hours and 44 minute playing time scare you away from watching it. It is truely the best movie in the history of movies.
