11 English Movies I Liked, IMHO :)

IMHO means, In My Humble Opinion :D

Ok, so I need to post a list of 11 movies... what 2 do?

I have an idea, I will not go to IMDB, not lookup any lists, nothing... will just think of 10 movies, whichever I remember still as good... Will list them and order them according to my experience, not on any rating... And, for the 11th one, I will just ask the first person I come across, what he remembers as a good movie.

I will just say something about the movies, the rest you can look up in IMDB or Wiki.

First let me make the 10 list... be right back... :)

Here we go...

The Man Without a Face10. The Man Without a Face
Nice movie about the relation between a known to be killer and a little boy. Nice one, really good story. I have already written about it here...

Director: Mel Gibson
Cast: Mel Gibson as McLeod & Nick Stahl as Chuck


The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe9. The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe
The fantasy one. The kids (!!!) are great. I liked Lucy the most.

Director: Andrew Adamson
Cast: Georgie Henley as Lucy, Skandar Keynes as Edmund, William Moseley as Peter & Anna Popplewell as Susan


The Quest8. The Quest
Its a old one (1996). The story of a fighter, becoming a hero after lots of struggles. I would say, just watch it.

Director: Jean-Claude Van Damme
Cast: Jean-Claude Van Damme as Christopher


Titanic7. Titanic
This one is the classic, nothing to say. If you haven't seen Titanic, then stop reading right now.

Director: James Cameron
Cast: Leonardo DiCaprio as Jack & Kate Winslet as Rose


Forbidden Kingdom6. Forbidden Kingdom
The first movie where Jackie Chan and Jet Li unites. I have already written about it here...

Director: Rob Minkoff
Cast: Jet Li as The Monkey King / The Silent Monk & Jackie Chan as Lu Yan / Old Hop


Lord of the Rings - Two Towers5. Lord of the Rings - Two Towers
This one I have got the extended edition. This was the one in the series I saw first. Wow, that was the feeling. Had seen the extended edition multiple times (extended edition means almost 4 hours).

Director: Peter Jackson
Cast: Elijah Wood as Frodo Baggins


The Truman Show4. The Truman Show
My favorite Jim Carrey movie. Great story, he is so original. I have already written about it here...

Director: Peter Weir
Cast: Jim Carrey as Truman Burbank


Dark Knight3. Dark Knight
The most talked about movie in 2008. I have already written about it here...

Director: Christopher Nolan
Cast: Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne / Batman


The Matrix2. The Matrix
The thing about matrix is no one knows the funda, they just don't get it. So they don't know the thrill and the excitement the rest of us feel. I have watched it fully some 6 times and parts of it a lot of times - the one with the spoon, first time meeting the oracle...

Directors: Andy Wachowski & Larry Wachowski
Cast: Keanu Reeves as Neo & Hugo Weaving as Agent Smith


A Beautiful Mind1. A Beautiful Mind
It is based on the life of John Nash, a celebrated mathematician. The first time I saw the movie, it was a low quality print with unclear audio and no subtitles. I watched again and again, some 5 times until I got an idea about the story. The thing was, each time I saw it, I got more and more insight into the complexity of the movie. Later I got a DVD with subtitles... this time also I got a lot more higher level insight... The story is so good, will keep on remembering the dialogues. We will start adoring John. And also Alicia, the way she depicts the situation, the way she portraits the character with such honor, really marvelous. One thing, it is said that the movie is not fully based on true happenings, who cares :)

Director: Ron Howard
Cast: Russell Crowe as John Nash, Jennifer Connelly as Alicia Nash.



Finished the 10, just asked Anoop, his one is Forest Gump.

Forest GumpForest Gump
The six Oscars says it all. The best by Tom Hanks.

Director: Robert Zemeckis
Cast: Tom Hanks as Forrest Gump
