Theres not a lot of movies that i’d happily watch more than once. Theres even less movies that i did watch more than once, happily.
So, when i came across an amazing movie just last night, which i will happily watch more and more times, i knew i just had to make this list. A list of movies that move me.
They’re the best pick-me-ups, so just in case i need them someday, i’ll build this list and add more to it everytime i found a worthy entry.
For me, a special kind of movie doesn’t just entertain, it inspires. It grips you, stuns you, leaves you enriched like your time had been most wisely spent.
You wont find any superheroes movie here, nor a lot of box office type action. So boring and bland, that comparing those with the ones on my list below is like comparing fast food with a chef’s cooking.
So here we go:
1. Original Sin
Don’t get me wrong, i watched the (heavily) censored version on tv the first time, so any love scene has nothing to do with my infatuation for this movie :)) In fact when i watched it the second time, the full version, i actually think the first time’s version is better. Angelina Jolie played excellently, and i don’t think i’ve ever liked another banderas movie xD
Shortly, the story’s poetic, with good characters supporting it. Nice twists too.
3. The fall
Postcard moments. It’s like watching a series of gorgeus paintings. I should watch it one more time, maybe a blueRay version..
4. Love actually
Another romance. I like the multiplots. A light, heartwarming story with a nice cast too.
5. Imagine me & you
I’ll bet you’ve never seen anything like this before. Anyway, i am now a devout fan of the writer and director, and vow to watch every single movie he makes.
“Sure is for people who don’t love enough”
6. Forrest Gump
Well made, tom hanks at his absolute best, to me. This and that one where he got lost in some island, which for the very reason that i cannot remember the title, fail to make this list :))
7. Free Willy, the first and second one
The first movie (after watching Sea Quest series), that made me want to be a marine biologist…too bad that didn’t work out.
8. Before sunrise & before sunset
Shows that a movie can be so simple yet still be able to touch your heart..excellent script. Before midnight, the last sequel, is in my must watch list.
9. Romeo and Juliet, the DiCaprio-Danes version
Honestly, i can’t bear the lines, and can’t understand half of it :)) But just seeing the magic happening, with poetic words (whatever they mean :D).. there’s just something about it.
Cool soundtrack too.
:)) Girly, friendship-y, like an Indonesian version of the Sisterhood of The Traveling Pants (Which is good, but doesn’t quite make it to this list).
11. Fight club
Men. Tough, crazy, fight-loving men. Fun to watch, and easy on the eyes ;D
