Movies I like: Populars

I have been asked to showcase a few of the movies I really liked watching/originally reading. This is the first part, and this will contain movies I figured where very popular and known, but also very much worth watching if you ask me. Please note, that I've been told countless times that I have a really bad taste in movies, so don't trust me ;)

    American History X(1998)
    A very unpleasant film about racism and how such things are passed through society.

    Forrest Gump(1994)
    You all know this one, right? A peculiar and very interesting story about one man's life. It always reminds                me, that "if it's not okay, it's not the end".

    Slumdog Millionaire(2008)
    How it all adds up.

    The Curious Case of Benjamin Button(2008)
    IMDb did a great tagline for this: "Life can only be understood backwards. It must be lived forwards"

    Into the Wild(2007)
    I have no words. This is a true story. It is sad how the meaning of the movie is not very apparent until the      very end, but it will all come together. I love this.

    Shawshank Redemption(1994)
    "redemption through acts of common decency". You have already seen this, haven't you?

    The Hours(2002)
    I actually don't think the movie is very known, but the book it is based on is an absolute classic. It's an     interpretation of the Virginia Woolf "Mrs. Dalloway". Amazing actresses, amazing story. Takes my breath     away. I especially adore the way Nicole Kidman plays Virginia, as seen in the photo.

    Out of Africa(1985)
    The filmatization of the book by the Danish author Karen Blixen. I loved the book and the story she tell's     about her life in Africa.

    The Truman Show(1998)
    How big is your world?


  1. The Movie isn't "Forrest Gump" it's Into the Wild. :)

    1. Haha, extreme brain-meltdown. Don't know what happened with that :p

  2. Into the wild is so meaningful...i love it and appreciate the film so much.
