50 films that you have to see

50 films that you have to see

Always people ask me to recommend a film, so I’ve created this list of 50 films that you have to see. The rule is that if you want to add a film you have to remove one from the list. It should always be 50 films.

1- The Godfather (1972), see the first two parts and you can skip the last one. I think it have the best opening line ever “I believe in America. America has made my fortune. And I raised my daughter in the American fashion. I gave her freedom, but I taught her never to dishonor her family. She found a boyfriend; not an Italian”

  1. I’ll add the following to the list:

    Damage

    Sphere

    Bitter Moon

    and would remove:

    Rocky, Pulp Fiction, and The Matrix !
    🙂

  2. i will agree since Pan’s Labrynith is there ( wth oscar guys is the lives of others is really better ? damn )

    the list is missing A Clockwork Orange , an artistic movie .

  3. Clockwork Orange was in the list, but I removed because not every one will love it and appreciate it.

    I did not like Bitter Moon, and Damage but most of the women that I know loved the film.

  4. I love Terminator! Nafs The Godfather, a5er jehz2.. must be skipped.

  5. I would remove the Terminator and Rocky, then replace them with Boondock Saints and the Rocky Horror Picture Show. Both movies are pretty much cult films, but I feel that people should watch them once.

    As a side note, I enjoyed A Clockwork Orange as well. The language was the hook for me though, not the storyline.

  6. I love the Rocky Horror Picture Show. it is a good example for movies so bad they’re good, but most of the people will not enjoy it.
