50 Films To Watch Before You Die :: Part 3



Sleepy Hollow
I'm not just indulging in my obsession with Johnny Depp, Sleepy Hollow genuinely is a brilliant film that you must see before you die. Everyone has heard the story of the headless horseman and that's what this is based on. 


Hansel & Gretel
Again, another story everyone has heard of but this is more than just a couple of kids eating candy from a witch's house. Hansel & Gretel become witch hunters after killing the witch in the candy house. I was surprised by how good this film was actually. If you enjoy Van Helsing, you will love this.


Rocky 4
Easily my favourite of the franchise. Apollo is killed by Ivan Drago ( a heavyweight Russian boxer) and Rocky wants revenge. If you can't be bothered with the other Rocky's, please watch this one. It's inspiring.


Case 39
The beginning of the film makes you believe that the character is innocent but you soon find out you're wrong. A social worker takes in a child whose parents are trying to kill her, she soon discovers they have a very good reason to.

Law Abiding Citizen
Another film where the viewer is led to believe a character is innocent. A man  who wants justice for the death of his wife and daughter may seem like an innocent prospect but you'd be wrong to believe he is as innocent as he makes himself out to be.


The Boy In The Striped Pyjamas
A word of warning, this film is incredibly upsetting. The son of a nazi discovers the fence of a concentration camp and befriends a small jewish boy on the other side. Like i said, this film is VERY upsetting but the acting and storyline is absolutely brilliant so it's worth watching simply to enjoy the brilliance of the acting.


Hook
Peter Pan is a story that everyone knows but Hook is the story of how Peter has forgotten who he really is and he must go back to Neverland to not only rescue his kids who have been kidnapped by Hook, but to remember that he is the boy who never grows old. Robin Williams' acting is perfect and is a perfect mixture of comedy and serious. You really need to watch this film no matter what your age.


Finding Neverland
People forget that it wasn't Disney who created Peter Pan, it was J.M Barrie and Finding Neverland follows his journey and the influences behind the characters. Johnny Depp & Kate Winslet work brilliantly together and make the film really magical. Another film that you will definitely shed a tear or two while watching.


Carrie
The daughter of a deeply religious mother discovers she can control things with her mind. A social outcast and figure of hate at her high school turns her into a killing machine. A remake was made of this a few years ago but i advise you watch the original with Sissy Spacek, it's not your typical horror film.

 Airplane
The biggest slapstick movie i have ever seen and one that the whole family will love no matter what their age. My daughter watched this when she was 9 and she was crying from laughter. I can't begin to tell you how silly it is but it's a classic and should be watched asap!
