50 Films To Watch Before You Die :: Part 4



Stand By Me
There's no film ever made or ever will be made that sums up friendships more than Stand By Me. 4 friends learn the general location of a body and go looking for it but along the way, they learn about what friendship is really all about. One of the most iconic films ever made in my opinion.


The Kings Speech
Colin Firth is one of my favourite actors (for obvious reasons) but his portrayal of King George VI is fantastic. The film is based on the struggle the King had with his stutter and the help he got to control it from the amazing Lionel Logue. An inspiring movie.

Last Vegas
4 friends who haven't seen each other in years come together for one of their stag do's. Morgan Freeman, Michael Douglas, Robert De Niro & Kevin Kline in one place..it's perfection. This film will leave you howling with laughter and make you appreciate that friendships can withstand the test of time.

Don't Say A Word
If you enjoy a good thriller movie, this is worth watching. The late Brittany Murphy plays a disturbed girl who is keeping a specific set of numbers secret from the gang of men that killed her father. Michael Douglas as a psychiatrist has to penetrate the depths of her mind to retrieve it in order to get back his daughter before the gang kill her.


The Witches
A Roald Dahl classic that was turned into an equally amazing film. I still get a shiver down my spine when the little girl disappears from the painting. Don't expect broomsticks and cauldrons from this movie but be ready for one of the best films you've ever seen, trust me.


Jumanji
Jumanji deserves so much more credit for being one of Robin Williams' best films. Imagine playing a game and every move you make has consequences such as giant spiders, a hunter out to kill you and a stampede. And on top of that, none of it will go away until someone wins, that's Jumanji.


Drop Dead Fred
I find it very hard to believe that there is anyone in the English speaking world that hasn't seen Drop Dead Fred. But if you are one of those crazy people, WATCH THIS FILM! An imaginary friend has never been so much fun! 

Mrs Doubtfire
Robin Williams has never made me laugh more, than when he played Mrs Doubtfire. If you are ever in one of those moods where you feel like life is weighing down on you and the only thing that will make you feel better is a funny, lighthearted film then this is perfect for you.


Quartet
A retirement home for musicians is hosting it's annual gala and the stars of the show are the Quartet, Maggie Smith, Tom Courtenay, Billy Connolly & Pauline Collins. British actors, British sense of humour, an overall brilliantly British film.


Notting Hill 
One of the greatest love stories to come out of the cinema and once again, it comes from the UK. Now don't get me wrong, pay attention to the whole film, but pay specific attention to Spike, he will have you laughing until your ribs hurt.

  2. Perhaps the most obvious reason why horror films are so popular is because people like to watch them at Halloween.online movies free

  4. If one is watching the movie with others, then a flat screen monitor enables a distortion free viewing and the angles are in such a manner that no detail is lost by anyone.
