No Country For Old Men is the best film from Joel and Ethan Coen since Fargo. It’s based on the Cormac McCarthy novel of the same name and is the story of a failed drug deal and the manhunt that follows. It deconstructs the western genre with its pitch-black themes and stunning cinematography by Roger Deakins. The film’s Javier Bardem as Anton Chigurh won four Oscars including Best Picture and Best Supporting Actor.

Taxi Driver

Taxi Driver is a modern classic that explores the issues of alienation in urban society. It is Martin Scorsese’s fourth film and blends elements of horror, film noir and urban melodrama. This film was made during the turbulent post-World War II era, following the Vietnam War and the Watergate scandal.

The film was a critical and commercial success for Scorsese and De Niro. Robert De Niro is arguably one of the greatest actors of the twentieth century. During his career, he was the most sought-after actor. Before his role in the film, De Niro drove cabs as a way to prepare for the role.

The script for “Taxi Driver” is a great example of a film that holds up over time. It fleshes out the characters well, and there is a sense of mystery surrounding Tavis Bickle’s background. Though his past is murky, the audience knows that he is a Vietnam War veteran. The dialogue is powerful, and the visuals are breathtaking.

The soundtrack, composed by Bernard Herrmann, provides a jazzy background to the film. The score is complemented by a beautiful saxophone riff. This jazzy piece of music perfectly complements the impressionistic montage of scenes of Bickle’s nighttime commute. The film also features the iconic ‘You Talkin’ to Me’ monologue that remains one of the most famous scenes in cinema history.

Despite the controversy surrounding Taxi Driver, it still remains one of the best movies of all time. The film continues to be popular today and is one of the most important culturally significant films of its generation. In 2012, a Sight and Sound critics’ poll ranked it the 31st best movie of all time. This ranking placed Taxi Driver alongside The Godfather Part II. Its inclusion in the National Film Registry means that it is a culturally significant film.

Blade Runner

Among the great sci-fi films of all time is Blade Runner, a 1982 science fiction film directed by Ridley Scott. The film’s story centers around a former police officer, Rick Deckard, who is recruited by the government to kill a race of violent androids. As his mission progresses, Deckard begins to question his own identity. This film has inspired countless imitators and helped legitimize the sci-fi genre.

The movie’s characters are rich and compelling. The storyline is straightforward, but its complexity lies in its multiple layers. A brilliant ensemble of actors plays key roles, with Ryan Gosling as the leading character balancing physicality with emotion. The film’s writers carefully consider the motivations of every character. This makes it very difficult for the audience not to care about any of them.

Blade Runner also has many fantastic action scenes. It’s also full of cleverly hidden plot twists and manipulations that keep you guessing. The movie is so clever and well-made that it requires you to use your brain to figure out the twists. The special effects are top-notch, and the action scenes are amazing.

The film also examines questions of ethics and the meaning of being human. The story is set in a futuristic Los Angeles and features replicants, artificially created humans that share human characteristics but are modified by engineers and live shorter lives than real humans. The question of whether a person is a human is also raised in the movie, as there are instances when replicants are not able to remember past events.

A sequel, Blade Runner 2049, was released in October 2017. It was directed by Denis Villeneuve and was released alongside a trilogy of short films covering the thirty years between the two films. Several versions of the film have also been produced since its release. See my article on the different versions of the film for more information.

City Lights

City Lights is a silent film that was produced by the legendary Charlie Chaplin. Chaplin was a brilliant actor and an innovator. Rather than use dialogue, he used facial expressions and body language to convey his emotions. Unlike the earlier era of silent films, Chaplin stayed away from slapstick humor and instead used the power of the camera to create a rich, emotional atmosphere. The result is a movie that is timeless and universal.

City Lights is a classic film that is still relevant today. The story has not changed a great deal in seven decades. Its simple narrative and frequent set pieces stay in the mind for a long time. It’s also a classic comedy that captivates audiences.

City Lights features some of Chaplin’s greatest performances. He played the Tramp countless times, but it is in this film that he shined. His timing is impeccable, as is the performance by his co-star Mike Myers. The film also features a memorable ending, starring Charley Chaplin himself.

Charlie Chaplin’s City Lights is a classic, enchanting romantic comedy. It tells the story of a tramp who falls in love with a blind flower girl. In return, he makes friends with a wealthy man who attempts suicide on a regular basis. However, the wealthy man only recognizes Chaplin’s “little tramp” character when he is drunk, so he ends up trying to persuade the blind girl to fall in love with him.

Although City Lights is a silent movie, the film also features sound effects and a music score by Chaplin. This is an important addition to a movie, as it helps add to the comedy and reflect on the situation.

Jurassic Park

Jurassic Park is one of the most memorable films in the history of cinema. It features many iconic characters including Jeff Goldblum’s Chaos Theorist Dr. Ian Malcolm and Sam Neill’s paleontologist Dr. Alan Grant. The film has many lines that have become iconic.

Jurassic Park is the best of the three films in the Jurassic Park franchise. The movie is the perfect blockbuster with an amazing cast, fantastic action, and jaw-dropping CGI effects. The moment where the main character encounters a ferocious dino is a movie classic. No other movie is able to capture the thrill of the scene.

This movie has become a staple in the movie industry. Stephen Spielberg’s original 1993 movie scared and delighted audiences around the world. It even inspired multiple generations of children to become archaeologists. The franchise has continued with the 2015 sequel, Jurassic World. While the newer movies don’t quite live up to the original, they are still great fun.

The original Jurassic Park movie was an enthralling and groundbreaking film that influenced many films for decades. Its innovative use of CGI and practical effects still makes it one of the best movies ever made. It’s easy to imagine a Tyrannosaurus Rex, even though he appears as a giant animatronic puppet.

Jurassic Park was a huge hit, and is considered one of the greatest cinematic achievements of all time. The original movie launched a series of films that, while never topping the original, has always left moviegoers talking and with something to discuss.

Star Wars

“Star Wars” is a sci-fi classic that spawned a huge franchise and changed the cinematic medium forever. It was a controversial project that faced many problems throughout its production, but in the end, the movie became a blockbuster that surpassed Jaws as the highest-grossing movie of all time. The film won six Oscars, including Best Picture and Best Director. It was also nominated for a further seven Oscars, and it remains one of the most acclaimed films of all time.

Star Wars is not only one of the most successful franchises of all time, but it’s one of the few that has managed to maintain the “fun” factor in the midst of its ever-evolving status. Its films have grossed over $10 billion worldwide and the franchise has become the fifth-most-profitable entertainment brand of all time. Of course, the franchise has had its ups and downs, but it’s a hard act to follow.

To create a list of the greatest movies of all time, Stacker analyzed IMDb ratings and Metascores to create an unique score for each film. The list only included movies released in English-language regions, and each film had to have at least 20,000 votes on IMDb to qualify. Movies with a low Metascore weren’t included.

Despite the negative press surrounding Episode VII, this installment of the Star Wars franchise is not as bad as many fans remember. The climax, where Anakin Skywalker is forced to fight the evil Darth Maul, is an epic battle that’s more like a ballet than a battle. The script for “Empire Strikes Back” has a classic quote, while “Attack of the Clones” has only a couple of inappropriate lines.
