Below we have compiled a list of top 10 classic super hit movies for all time. Without wasting much of your time we present a list these movies to you. Have a look:
1. The Godfather Trilogy (1972-1990)
The first part of The Godfather series is a must watch. The main reason is Marlon Brando’s powerful screen presence and the amazingly interesting storyline of a doe-eyed innocent boy, Michael Corleone, turning into a ruthless Mafia Boss. Awesome screenplay and powerful storyline.
The second part of the series is not as good as the first one but still it is considered as one of the best master pieces of all time. Al Pacino’s portrayal of Michael Corleone is just awesome. Al Pacino managed to show ‘Fratricide with style’ in this movie.
In this 3rd and last part Michael Corleone is nearing 60 and now wants to legitimize all his business and profits he earned through the Mafia business. The Godfather Part III, in my views, is even better than the first part of The Godfather series. The reason is Al Pacino’s acting skills. The last scenes of the movie really bought tears in my eyes. Again, a master piece for all time! I regard The Godfather series as 1 complete film so the first film in this list is The Godfather series.
2. The Good, The Bad and The Ugly (1966)
This film was a one of its kind. It is a 1966 film. Very old. Still it is an all time classic. This one is a Spaghetti Western film starring Clint Eastwood. It is about those old cowboy days and all the bounty hunting stuff. The Good, The Bad and The Ugly still tops the charts and is a fun to watch movie with action, violence and drama.
3. The Sixth Sense (1999)
What we personally like in this movie is the boy’s, Haley Joel Osment’s, performance. He portrayed the character so well that at some points in the film you totally forget that Bruce Willis also starred in this film. Also the storyline of the film is gripping.
4. Dracula Bram Stoker’s (1992)
A master piece of its time. If you watch this movie in today’s times you will completely forget the Twilight Saga. Powerful screen presence and screen play by Gary Oldman and Keanu Reeves makes this an all time classic. Moreover Francis Ford Coppola, the director of The Godfather Trilogy, directed this film which adds to its success. A recommended watch.
5. Scarface (1983)
Al Pacino’s performance at its peak. The movie is a very violent and powerful one. If you have played and completed GTA Vice City you will observe that many things are in common between the game and this movie. In this movie Al Pacino plays Tony Montana, a Cuban immigrant, who takes over a drug empire and then greed takes a toll on him.
6. Little Manhattan (2005)
Little Manhattan is perhaps a very cute movie. The story is about a little 11 year old boy finds love in Manhattan city. Starring Josh Hutcherson and Charlie Ray this movie will surely touch your hearts. The story told from the perspective of the little boy, Gabe, is just awesome. You should watch this movie!
7. The Truman Show (1998)
Ever imagined if your whole life was broad casted live on national television without your knowledge? Well, this movie’s story is exactly the same. Jim Carrey’s comic performance with this one of a kind story makes this movie a complete package of laughter, emotions and awesomeness to watch.
8. Man on The Moon (1999)
Biographic movie of the Avant-Garde and eccentric comedian singer Andy Kaufman. It stars Jim Carrey and shows the struggle and life of a real-life artist Andy Kaufman. Wonderfully and beautifully made. The last song of the movie ‘Friendly World’ was the first post of this blog. By watching this movie you will understand Andy Kaufman more better. Though Andy is no longer with us now.
9. The Time Machine (2002)
The movie was adapted from the novel of the same name by H.G. Wells. In this movie the scientist tries to alter the events in the past by travelling into the past but is not successful to do so. So, he decides to travel in the future to find the answer to this. But then gets trapped there.
10. The Karate Kid (1984)
Don’t ever try to compare the 2010 movie of the same name with this one because this movie is an all time classic. The presence of this movie, as a whole, is a lot more than that of the Jackie Chan starrer. A handyman/martial arts master agrees to teach a bullied boy karate and shows him that there is more to the martial art than fighting. This is the story of the film. It stars Pat Morita, as the martial arts teacher, and Ralph Macchio as Daniel Larusso. This movie is my all time favorite.
So, here you have! The Top 10 movies for all time!
