There are movies out there which follow the same melodramatic, horrific or the thriller path that has been set by movies from the bygone era. Each movie is unique in its own way. Some present you with warmth, good happy feelings type, some leave you amazed by the stunts in it, some leave you heartbroken. And well then there are some that leave you like “WTF?!”
This is a special kind now. They don’t give you any idea at first as to where the story is actually heading to and then ‘BANG!’ there comes a storm that leaves you in a turmoil. But when all the pieces of the puzzle come together you will be speechless and confused.You literally have to watch the entire movie more than twice to understand it. And for people like me it’s surely a treat and a blessing.
So here I present you my list of movies that left me in awe and have never failed to fascinate me no matter how many times I watch them.
Well this one dates way back to 1980, but has not failed to bewitch its viewers till date. Directed by Stanley Kubrick and starring the amazing Jack Nicholson, the movie is one of top rated movies out there. The reason for it is the thrilling OR terrifying plot. I used the word ‘OR’ there because it still remains a mystery about what happened to Mr. Torrance. Was the Hotel really haunted or was it the isolation that made Mr. Torrance mad. And well the ending gives another food for thought.
Well what can you expect from a Quentin Tarantino directed movie. Its another classic movie with a mind boggling twist in it. It’s not anything about a particular protagonist or antagonist. It deals with the two mob hit men, a boxer, a gangster’s wife, and a couple of bandits. Well the movie handles it starring crowd quite superbly. The way their lives intertwined together is just awesome. And I DARE YOU! I DOUBLE DARE YOU! say any other movie has a plot better than this one.
How can Nolan’s creation not be on the list. Christopher Nolan has been delivering us with many astounding and bewildering movies since ‘The Memento’ and this one is no exception. Also the Star Cast adds more to the awesomeness of the film. The movie follows the lives of two magicians, who due to a bitter past, engage in competitive one upmanship to pull out the ultimate illusion. Well not only is the plot amazing, but the actors to have done a breathtaking performance. Well adding all of them together you will get one of the best movies made till date.
Well Leonardo Di Caprio has missed out on oscars many times, but I don’t see any reason why he was not awarded it for his performance in Shutter Island. Both Leo’s performance and Martin Scorsese directed film was unbelievably perfect and startling. The plot follows the story of a Marshal played by Leo who investigates the disappearance of a murderess from a Criminal Asylum. But things turn out dark and suspicious as many secrets are revealed one by one. Truth be told, when I saw it the first time, initially I felt I overestimated the film until I witnessed it’s end. The movie has one of the biggest twist in the end that I have witnessed so far.
Well when you are all depressed by your job, your importance, your social status in short you entire life, be sure you don’t turn yourself into Edward Norton from the movie ‘Fight Club’. This was one hell of a movie and it’s one of a kind. The plot follows the story of an insomniac worker who meets a strange soap salesman Tyler Durden. Well he surely changes his way of life. For making things more interesting they together start an underground Fight Club which later turns out to be much more bigger than what the protagonist had thought. But his world turns upside down when the truth starts unveiling itself.
