This time lets look at some old classics… If you missed them somehow, don`t repeat that mistake now!
6. Das Boot (1981, Director:Wolfgang Petersen , Main character: Jürgen Prochnow)
I can remember that I was just a little kid when I first watched this movie on TV, and I know I cried like a baby… And many years after that I remembered it, and had to watch it… and it was all the same.
There aren`t many movies that can pull you inside with their story, that you really think that those characters involved are real. Das Boot is one of them.
As you could have already guessed, it is a German movie about German submarine crew during World War II. About their struggle to stay alive in all of that chaos that others started, and they were just following their orders, like all of military personel did during war time.
But I have to warn you right away, when you watch this movie, remember to breathe, `cause most of the time you will be no that submarine, waiting… listening to see what will happen.
7. Once upon a time in the west (1968, Director: Sergio Leone, Main characters: Charles Bronson, Henry Fonda, Claudia Cardinale, Jason Robards)
Best western of all times! And made by Italian director who even did not know English language, but he knew his movies, and made a masterpiece with this one.
I have seen many silly westerns with white guys painted to look like bad old indians and such stupid stuff, but this isn`t like that, this is a all time western classic. Base of the movie isn`t on the west itself, or indians… it is a human story, about revenge, good and bad, money and honesty.
All of the characters in this movie are really unique… OK, Claudia Cardinale looks like my dream woman … but, enough of that 🙂
Great deal of movies atmosphere is achieved with one of the best soundtracks ever made… Ennio Moriccone once more showing what a genius he is.
8. Dr. Strangelove (1964, Director: Stanley Kubrick, Main Characters: Peter Sellers)
I guess that everybody has a movie that, when it crosses your mind, makes you laugh… Dr. Strangelove is one of them to me.
If you ever wanted to see a truly crazy movie with some of the best ever acting, you must not miss this one. Yes, it is old, but it is still a perfect movie that has a huuuuge fan base.
In time of nuclear threats from Russia and America, many things could have gone wrong, and they did, in Dr. Strangelove… and it went wrong in the silly way… main reason were bodily fluids 🙂
But maybe the greatest thing about this movie is performance of Peter Selers who plays three totally different characters, and you will not even recognize his at first. And he does it so so good 🙂 This little short from the film will tell you much more than I can.
