Hollywood has made tons of movies. Some are pure popcorn flicks – a one time watch. but some are so good you just can’t get enough of no matter how many times you watch them.
Independence Day came out way back in 1996. It is full of cliché tropes and story elements. But it still strikes a chord with the viewers. Maybe it’s the cast or the build up or even the music. this alien invasion story is worth watching many times over.
Terminator 2: Judgment Day
James Cameron‘s second terminator movie featured one of the very first usages of full scale CGI. Judgment day remains relevant to this day for starting the CGI revolution in Hollywood.
This 2001 sci fi comedy movie is a must watch for people who haven’t For those who do, they would be willing to vouch for the movie’s perfect balance between humor and adventure. A mysterious meteorite crash lands on Earth and spreads an extra-terrestrial organism that starts taking over the planet. The onus of defeating it falls on three unlikely saviors.
The Lion King
We wanted to put Aladdin in here but settled for The Lion King because it has a much more human angle to explore. Considering it is a movie about animals, the irony is significant. The Lion King is probably the most iconic Disney movie followed by Aladdin and Toy Story.
When the Wachowski brothers aimed to create a sci fi revolution in Hollywood, everyone thought they were fools. When The Matrix hit the theaters, it blew the competition away. After more than two decades, it still remains a masterpiece.
Harry Potter & The Philosopher’s Stone
This is where it all started. The legend of Harry Potter begins with the first ever movie – Harry Potter & The Philosopher’s Stone. The franchise only looked up after that. But the first movie was the rawest and truest Harry Potter movie in our opinion.
Men In Black
A secret organization of men in black suits saves the world from alien threats, while the general public is oblivious to the fact that aliens even exist. Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones deliver a career best.
In 2008, Marvel Studios had a vision. That vision began with Iron Man. It was in this movie that a legend that was Robert Downey Junior and his iconic role of Tony Stark was born. And the rest is history.
Pirates Of The Caribbean: The Curse Of The Black Pearl
The World’s End and Dead Man’s Chest were good. But Johnny Depp’s Jack Sparrow first appeared in Curse of the Black Pearl. It is an utterly enjoyable tale suitable for all ages.
The Mummy is a remake of another old black and white movie. No matter how many times we watch it, the tales from the crypts and pyramids of Egypt keep pulling us back for another re-watch. Who knew archaeology could be this interesting?!?!
The Pixar movie tells the tale of a lone robot stranded on a deserted Earth who finds of the love of his life. He must now travel to the stars to bring her as well as the rest of humanity back to the planet.
Back in 2012, this was the movie to end all movies. The Avengers brought for the first time, the six founding Avengers to defend the world against a common threat.
The Dark Knight
there’s always Interstellar and Memento, but Christopher Nolan’s Magnum Opus will always be The Dark Knight. We would watch it again and again just for one actor. And you know whom we mean.
Indiana Jones & The Raiders of the Lost Ark
We have said it before and we will say it again. Raiders of the Lost Ark was what made Harrison Ford a household phenomenon, not Han Solo in Star Wars. Sue us!!
And with this movie, Steven Spielberg did the impossible. Jurassic park is still remembered as the perfect movie that combines action, science fiction, drama, adventure, and comedy in the right amounts. Maybe that’s why the movie has zero haters.
