Movies Everyone Should See At Least Once In Their Life

With art being subjective and audiences unpredictable,
filmmakers can only hope their work will leave a lasting impression. Directors may even prefer a strong negative
reaction to a film over one of indifference. Every once in a while, a special film comes
along, and whether you love it or hate it, it makes you think, stirs up heated conversation,
and stays with you long after your viewing. From spine-tinglers to mind-benders, here
are some films you should definitely check out at least once in your life. Some small spoilers ahead. Zodiac It’s human nature to want to solve complicated
puzzles and crack unsolved mysteries. But sometimes there are questions that just
can’t be answered — like who ended five people’s lives in northern California during
the late ’60s and early ’70s. He called himself Zodiac, and nobody ever
discovered his true identity, although that wasn’t for lack of trying. The case inspired quite a few sleuths, and
while most walked away defeated, a few would never give up until they looked the killer
right in the eye. That’s where David Fincher’s Zodiac comes
in. It’s a study of obsession — on what happens
to a person when curiosity keeps gnawing away at his mind. “You got 4 crime scenes, not a single usable
print? You can’t think of this case in normal police
terms.” The movie follows a trio of heroes — a detective
played by Mark Ruffalo, a reporter played by Robert Downey Jr., and a cartoonist played
by Jake Gyllenhaal — chasing down the hooded serial killer. Zodiac is about the never-ending search and
how that quest can change from dedication to obsession. Granted, if you’re looking for a gorefest,
you might want to pass on this film. This is a story about chasing after shadows
and accepting the fact that you might never know all the answers. Looper Time travel is a common trope in science fiction. It’s used so often that it can get pretty
stale, and that’s why Looper is a treat for any film fan. Written and directed by Rian Johnson, Looper
uses the genre’s time-bending conventions to focus on how violence only begets violence
and how our actions can wreak havoc across generations. In this universe, gangsters from 2074 send
their victims back to 2044, where they’re disposed of by hit men like Young Joe, played
by Joseph Gordon-Levitt. It’s a lucrative job, but as part of the deal,
Joe will eventually have to shoot his older self to “close his loop.” Only, “Old Joe” Bruce Willis isn’t going to
sit around and let his younger self end his own life. This kicks off a film about a guy literally
trying to find himself. “You done all this already? As me?” “I don’t want to talk about time travel. Because if we start talking about it, then
we’re going to be here all day talking about it, making diagrams with straws.” The more Young Joe learns, the more he gets
sucked into a twisty revenge plot. In a medium that often glorifies brute force,
Looper shows that violence — even when done for understandable reasons — doesn’t solve
problems… it just makes them worse. Snowpiercer If you’re looking for realism, then Snowpiercer
probably isn’t the movie for you. Instead, Bong Joon-ho’s first English-language
film works more like a fairy tale, one full of brilliant visuals, masterful action scenes,
and a radical message about the nature of society. The story is set in a post-apocalyptic future
where the world has been turned into a giant ice cube. The few survivors have taken shelter on a
massive train, but life aboard this locomotive can be pretty rough for those stuck in the
tail end. “I belong to the front. You belong to the tail.” These unlucky passengers are treated like
peons by the well-to-do folks in the front, so eventually a group of rebels led by Curtis,
played by Chris Evans, decide it’s time for an uprising. As they fight their way up the train — and
through some of the most wonderful sets in recent sci-fi memory — Curtis comes face-to-face
with a harsh realization. Without getting too far into spoilers, Snowpiercer
isn’t just a critique of the class system. It’s an examination of the very idea of “revolution.” Look at history, and you’ll see that in most
cases, idealistic rebels turn into the dictators they want to overthrow. According to Snowpiercer, that’s because the
system itself is beyond saving. You might disagree with Snowpiercer’s interpretation
of politics, but at the very least it provides some interesting food for thought. And if for no other reason, you should check
out the film for Tilda Swinton’s hilarious-yet-horrifying performance as the world’s most maniacal politician. Ex Machina From Metropolis to Her, science fiction movies
have always been interested in examining man’s relationship with technology, often reflecting
the worries and concerns of their time. After all, technology’s constantly evolving,
and constantly creating new benefits and new drawbacks. Nowhere is that more evident than in Alex
Garland’s Ex Machina. “Are you attracted to me?” “What?” “Are you attracted to me? You give me Indications that you are.” “I do?” “Yes.” The story centers on a young programmer named
Caleb, who wins the chance to spend a few days working with Nathan, a wealthy super
genius. When Caleb shows up at Nathan’s secluded cabin,
he quickly becomes a part of a complicated test, tasked with interviewing a beautiful
robot named Ava. Caleb soon develops a crush on the imprisoned
Ava, while Nathan clearly enjoys his status as a creator god. As for Ava, she just wants to be free. This brilliant film grapples with the ethical
and moral questions about how humans should treat artificial intelligence, and it also
deals with relevant themes like the issue of surveillance. But there’s something else going on in Ex
Machina, as the film is a deeply disturbing study about the different ways men objectify
and abuse women. By the end of the movie, you might start questioning
everything you’re seeing, with a few gut-punches along the way that will leave you thinking
about Ex Machina for quite some time. Whiplash If we know one thing for sure about Damien
Chazelle, it’s that the man loves himself some jazz music. For proof, look no further than Whiplash,
the director’s breakout film. The movie stars Miles Teller as an ambitious
young drummer named Andrew, a guy desperately hoping to join a prestigious band at the music
conservatory he attends. But if he wants to make the cut, first he
has to impress Terence, a snarling, swearing, instrument-throwing conductor played by J.K.
Simmons. This is not a man who’s easily impressed. Driven by his need for perfection, Andrew
dedicates every waking hour to becoming the world’s best jazz drummer, practicing so hard
that his fingers bleed. Meanwhile, he burns every bridge and ruins
every relationship in his life, all to achieve his goal of greatness. Andrew only grows more and more obsessed with
impressing Terence and becoming the next Buddy Rich. Sure, he’s becoming a horrible person, but
he’s going to get his face on the Mt. Rushmore of jazz music. That’s why Whiplash is such a fascinating
film. It’s all about the price of success — similar
to Chazelle’s La La Land — and it suggests that while you might become the greatest drummer
who’s ever lived, you’ll probably have more fans than friends. The Invitation There are a lot of great movies out there
about grief like Ordinary People and Manchester by the Sea. But the scariest might be Karyn Kusama’s The
Invitation. This is the ultimate dinner party-gone-wrong
movie, one that’ll have you sitting on the edge of your seat the entire time, screaming
at the characters to get out of the house. Unfortunately, they won’t listen — because
they’re far too polite. The Invitation follows a guy named Will, played
by Logan Marshall-Green, who’s experienced a terrible tragedy that ruined his marriage. Now, he’s received an invitation from his
ex-wife Eden, played by Tammy Blanchard, for a get-together at her Hollywood Hills home. All the old gang’s going to be there, and
Will reluctantly agrees to attend. But when he arrives, he feels something is
terribly wrong — probably because Eden won’t stop talking about the weird cult she’s just
joined. Or perhaps everything feels off because Will
is still trying to cope with that tragedy from his past, an event that occurred in this
very house. As his emotions come boiling to the top, Will
must grapple with old wounds that never healed, while trying to convince the other guests
— all too nice to question their hosts’ odd behavior — that something weird is happening. “You think we’re crazy?” “I never said that.” “That’s OK. I’m not offended. A lot of people think we’re crazy.” It’s a nail-biter of a film that deals with
pain, loss, and the power of social norms. And by the way, it ends with one of the creepiest
final shots in thriller history. The Babadook Being a parent — especially a single mom
— is incredibly hard, something Amelia knows only too well. She was left a widow when her husband was
in a car wreck, and now she’s alone with her 7-year-old son, Samuel. Amelia and Samuel’s relationship is complicated;
he’s basically a devil child. He screams, cries, and metaphorically suffocates
his mom. She loves the boy, but she kinda hates him,
too. Just when Amelia reaches the edge of her sanity,
a grisly pop-up book shows up at her house. This isn’t your normal bedtime story, though. Instead, it’s a “children’s tale” about Mr.
Babadook, a murderous demon with some very bad plans for Amelia and her boy. Soon, our hero sees the spirit lurking in
the shadows, and as the monster gets closer and closer, Amelia’s relationship with Samuel
takes an even darker turn. “The Babadook did it, mum.” Written and directed by Jennifer Kent, this
Australian film works perfectly as a first-rate fright flick. In fact, William Friedkin, director of The
Exorcist said it was the scariest movie he’d ever seen. But really, The Babadook feels more like a
compassionate version of The Shining. The movie works on multiple levels, examining
both the depths of depression and the pain and suffering of being a parent. It’s a story about battling your demons and
keeping them at bay, even if you know full well that you’ll never truly defeat them. Get Out Warning: the less you know about Get Out,
the better. If you want to keep completely spoiler-free,
just know that writer-director Jordan Peele has crafted one of the greatest horror movies
of the 2010s, one that surpassed all box office expectations and impressed nearly every critic
on Earth. You should also know that Get Out is a movie
about racism, but not the kind that involves rednecks, nooses, or burning crosses. Daniel Kaluuya plays Chris Washington, a black
photographer dating a white woman, played by Allison Williams. She wants Chris to meet her parents, but Chris
isn’t sure that’s a good idea. He knows a thing or two about being a black
guy in a white world. Nevertheless, Chris gives in, and Mom and
Dad certainly seem friendly. Many cringey compliments later, we begin to
wonder if these people aren’t quite as PC as they seem, and maybe that’s true about
more Americans than we think. “Do you find that being African American has
more advantage or disadvantage in the modern world?” We won’t give away any more of the plot, but
rest assured, things get really scary really fast. The movie plays out like those horrific conspiracy
classics from the ’60s and ’70s, like Rosemary’s Baby or The Stepford Wives. With its ever-growing sense of dread, Peele’s
debut film is a brilliant satire of race relations in the U.S., while also featuring one of cinema’s
creepiest party scenes and an intense climax — to say the least. Thanks for watching! Click the Grunge icon to subscribe to our

  6. How nuch did you get paid to hype these suckfest movies? This is almost like rotten tomatoes, if the critics on there tell you a movie is bad, you should definitely watch… which is the opposite here lmfao!

  7. I will advise some more movies: Rocky, Avatar, James Bond (every one of them), fast and furious…

  8. It's the list of the super extended mcu. Alternative lives of Iron Man, hulk, cap, master wizard lady and so on.

  9. Snowpiercer is one of the worst pieces of crap ever made. A train running around the world continuously non-stop, for 18 years! (Perpetual motion?! Seriously? ) Train tracks need to be replaced. Train parts wear out. Engines need replacing. You need oil. The idea of the only remaining life on earth are trapped on a train running forever. Simply insane. Not "science-fiction", but insane. The name of the movie..absurd. Because the train runs through a few places where snow piles on the tracks, and train doesn't derail. May be this a "magic" train? This is worse than a B-movie sci-fi from the 1950's. The one good thing about the movie is that the climate alarmists kill off all life on trying to cool the earth. Global cooling is the real threat to mankind, not global warming.

  10. The Pursuit of Happyness is a must watch. A raw and real story of a man fighting against all odds to give his son a better life than what he has been dealt. It is my personal favorite movie of all time. Remember, that "Happyness" spelled with a "Y" and not an "I"

  13. “Get Out” was INSANE! Creepy from start to finish, with a little comedic relief from Lil Rel. I watch it whenever I get the chance.

  21. I like to watch thriller movies because they leave you totally confused after watching it and you are eagerly waiting for what will happen next, so i decided the invitation was a good thriller to watch because of this video where he told it is a good movie to watch but The Invitation is kind of boring, yeah it has a twisted ending but you feel bore until the ending comes. Instead they have given many clues at the beginning of movie which are not so Clever and you understand it immediately which also makes ending boring too. I don't know whether you have watched it or not and you liked it or not but in my opinion it is really very boring and not like other thrillers or i have been expecting too much from a thriller movie since i watched movies like Shutter Island and zodiac they are pure class👌
