7. The Perks of Being A Wall Flower Based on Stephen Chbosky’s best seller, this film tells the heartfelt story of growing up, both the bewildering highs and overpowering lows.

Learn English Commercial An incredibly crude, yet hilarious foreign commercial follows one stereotypical German family as they hop into their nice blue Volkswagen, flip on the radio and begin bobbing their heads to a song that happily repeats an extremely vulgar sentence over and over. They drive away, and the message “Engles leren?”, which translates to “Want to learn English?”, appears on the screen. The ironic idea of a wholesome family obliviously enjoying such a crass tune, along with the afterthought of how the family would react upon finding out what the song actually means makes this commercial one of the funniest ever.

10. Forrest Gump Forrest Gump critics would claim this film is too sentimental and contains a slightly problematic message, but the movie’s fun technical crafts and era capturing soundtrack overwhelm these ideas. Along with the sweetness and charm of this film, which show its true finesse and wisdom. When you narrow in on what really makes this film special, it comes down to Forrest’s magnetic

    The Incredibles is a movie I've seen too many times. This movie was one of my favorite movies as a kid, and still is now. A movie about super heroes in hiding because the world doesn’t accept them and a story of them saving the same world just drew me in. In the review published in Teen Ink they stated that the movie as "Funny, exciting, adventurous and nerve wracking” (Schatz). I believe this is exactly how to describe the movie.…

    Much of the meaning imbued in the original novel by J. K. Rowling is lost in the fast paced, fervent, and action packed film. This is abundantly clear at the climax of the film, the final face-off between Harry and Voldemort. The cinematography of this scene is not just picturesque but industrious. It is clear that every aspect of every shot is deliberate from framing to depth of field. These choices not only serve to keep us focused on the intended subject, a necessity with all the chaos taking place on screen, but also to heighten the viewers emotions.…

    They investigate themes like hope, sacrifice, family and the struggle against a seemingly unstoppable evil in interesting and engaging ways. They all hit home. A final praise for the writing, this film rivals The Force Awakens for the title of the funniest Star Wars movie to date. K-2SO gets the best comedic moments, but the one-liners and humor come at the perfect times here. They add levity to what is otherwise some heavy proceedings.…

    Red Eye Film Analysis

    Red Eye is quite possibly my favorite non-slasher from Wes Craven. It's full of suspense, dread and in my opinion some of the best acting to come out of 2005. Rachel McAdams and Cillian Murphy carry this film on pure chemistry and intensely memorable performances that linger after viewing, coupled with Wes Craven's growth is a director which is very apparent when viewing this film so soon after some of his earlier works. I hadn't seen this film since the year it was released and was excited to revisit it, wondering if it would hold up and be as good as I remembered it. It was.…

Classifying movies into three distinct categories, fantastic, mediocre, and terrible, can help people everywhere determine what movies they need to watch. Motion pictures are a great way to entertain company. Fantastic movies need a great storyline, realistic visual effects, and suitable actors.
