The Shawshank Redemption (1994)
The benchmark of finest film-making
The Shawshank Redemption is a movie that will really never ever be forgotten. Arguably the best movie of all time. A thundering reassurance in the hope for a better tomorrow, this movie is truly an epitome of hope and perseverance. Probably should be filed under the category of movies you should watch anyhow before you die. True masterpiece. There won't be another movie that can be quite anything like this.
This movie is so powerful that I can't even describe this in a few words. This is the kind of movie that rekindles hopes in all of us. The kind of movie that will always keep moving and impressing generations to come. With a storyline that not only will blow you away, but also strengthen your hopes and faith in the fact that "Hope is a good thing. Maybe the best of things. And no good thing ever dies".
The Wrestler (2008)
Riveting and truly touching
I have not seen much of Mickey Rourke's work. Last time I saw him was in Sin City. That was not much of screen time for him as that movie was segmented in three parts. After that, I watched this movie with Rourke in main lead. This movie is very deserving of a best picture nomination.
This is one roller-coaster ride of emotions. This movie is simply perfect. And I think Mickey Rourke should have won the award for best actor in lead role. Gripping,deeply engrossing and outstanding, this movie is surely one of the best of the year. Those who thought Mickey Rourke is a bad actor should reconsider. This is probably his best performance. Give this movie a chance. Don't miss out on this one.
And yeah, I've got one last thing to say. Maybe people are right. - He does not look how he used to before, but goddammit he's still standing there and he's Mickey Rourke !! :)
Lost in Translation (2003)
One of those movies...
Watching which, i was almost about to sleep. But then by the time i was about to completely give in, the movie was over. A complete drag all the way to the end. I really don't understand what the heck in this movie was so good that it is so highly rated. I mean it is not even anything special. The story is so damn ordinary, but that's not the point. There are movies with ordinary or clichéd story lines but still they are in fact very well executed. This one is a 1 hour 40 minutes of bombardment of clichés and boredom. Hell even the actors' faces look so bored as if they are themselves asking 'when the heck will this movie be over'. And the director has succeeded in making the viewer feel the same too. Total waste of 1 hour and 40 minutes.
