- Frankenstein (1931)
We all are familiar with the story of the Frankenstein monster and its creator. But this film which stars Boris Karloff as the monsters is not just about horror and revenge. It dramatizes him and his human emotions throughout this tragic movie. This oldest version of this classic tale is one of the best.
- The Sixth Sense (1991)
It shows the story of an 11-year old kid who can communicate with ghosts. He is scared and alone until a child psychologist dealing with his heartache played by Bruce Willis helps him out. This movie dramatizes the struggles of a kid who is unable to explain why strange things happen to him. It is full of thrill and emotions as you feel every emotion that the kid feels.
- Lord of the rings: the return of the king
The third part of the Lord of the ring series is one of the best parts. It culminates the journey of each character as King Arthur takes his rightful place as the king, while Frodo and Sam make the final leg of their journey.
Over three hours long (4-if you watch the director’s cut), this is full of drama, thriller, action, and comedy. The final chapter feels heavy as we say goodbye to most of our favourite characters forever.
- A woman under the influence (1974)
A person dealing with mental illnesses doesn’t suffer alone. It affects the entire family, and that is dramatized so beautifully in this film. Gena Rowlands is the main lead in dealing with anxiety and depression. She garnered positive reviews for her surreal portrayal, and the film gained mass appreciation as well.
- Little women (2019)
There have been many adoptions of this classic novel by Louisa May Alcott. But the latest cinematic adoption helmed by Greta Gerwig takes all the awards. It is beautifully written and performed. Her vision provided more depth to characters other than Jo. The depiction of each sister’s struggle and how they rise from those while supporting each other is a tale worth watching.
- The hurt locker (2008)
A thriller movie building excitement and nervousness in its wake as two soldiers do their best to disarm explosive devices in Iraq. It is a perfect balance between war madness and threats that seems to harm these men even in their quiet times.
Also, Kathryn Bigelow, the director is the only women director to win an Oscar with the movie winning the best picture Oscar as well.
- Marriage story (2019)
Netflix upped their game by coming up with a beautiful, heartbreaking, and realistic story with this movie. Scarlet Johansson and Adam Driver along with Laura Derma who won the best-supporting actress award stars in this. The film follows the character of Scarlet and Adam, as a couple, embarking for a split from each other. The performances and reality of divorce and the anguish it brings is too raw.
