Top 4 Movies to See in a Lifetime

Recently, we’ve noticed that most of the Hollywood productions that become blockbusters have a lot of action, special effects, or feature superheroes. The vast array of action films that have been launched over the years is truly baffling, and can leave a cinephile feeling somewhat frustrated, especially if he or she appreciates complex stories and characters that actually have flaws.

As everyone knows, in real life, superheroes don’t exist. That’s why these characters are completely unrelatable and unrealistic. And besides, the number of such movies has become outrageous, and that makes all films seem the same.

If you’re thinking of watching something truly interesting one evening and you don’t know what movie to pick from Netflix or the provider of your choice, check out our list.

The Shawshank Redemption

Starring Tim Robbins and Morgan Freeman, this movie is one of those you might never be able to forget after seeing. It tells the story of Andy Dufresne, a highly educated banker who is found guilty for murder and ends up spending his life in prison. But things are never what they seem.

Although Dufresne finds it hard to make a connection with most of the inmates, he gradually becomes friends with Red, the guy that can get you anything. This movie is touching and deep and it’s based on a novel written by Stephen King. It’s by far one of the best Drama films of the 1990s.

Meet the Parents

Greg Focker (played by Ben Stiller) is a male nurse who wants to propose to his girlfriend but in order to do that, he has to meet her parents. What’s best about this film is that the performances of both Ben Stiller, widely known as one of the funniest guys in the world, and that of Robert DeNiro (the girlfriend’s father) are so good that they’ll have you laughing until you cry. Here’s a list of top 10 funny Hollywood movies, if you’re into the genre.

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

At the beginning of the 21st century, those accustomed to Jim Carrey’s parts were surprised to notice that he had started to star in Dramas and films from genres other than comedy. This is one of the best movies of 2004.

While it’s categorized as a romantic science fiction film, it’s a lot deeper than that. It tells the story of Joel Barish (Carrey) and Clementine Kruczynski (Kate Winslet), who are drawn to each other almost inexplicably and who always end up together despite being opposite personalities. In a way, the plot is a representation of what faith might be like.


This 2012 crime drama movie was based on The Wettest County in the World, a book written by Matt Bondurant. The film stars Tom Hardy, Mia Wasikowska, Shia Labeouf, Jessica Chastain, Gary Oldman and many others. It tells the story of three bootlegging brothers that get in trouble with the law for obvious reasons. It’s exciting and packed with action and will keep you on the edge of the couch. Tom Hardy’s performance makes it worth seeing.
