information on the film.
Great story-line, great acting, great score. This movie has it all.
2.The Ten Commandments
Even if the dialogue wasn't that great, the Ten Commandments still has
a wonderful grandeur that makes it a favourite every Easter.
3.The Maltese Falcon
This is a movie that goes beyond its genre. It's a work
about what has true value and what doesn't it. Probably, John Huston's best film.
4.The Seventh Seal
Who would ever think that that a movie about death and spiritual mysteries would
be entertaining? Great dialogue and characters uplift this story.
5.The Day The Earth Stood Still
When seen for the first time, this is a genuinely scary sci/fi film. It's
was so scary, in fact, that the last line from the short story, "Farewell To The Master", was omitted from
the theatrical version.
Do you remember when movies were unpredicable with a great deal
of suspense? How could anyone leave Hitchcock off a top ten list?
7.It's A Wonderful Life
It may be Capra corn, but "It's a Wonderful Life" is a perennial favourite
at Christmas time. I'm sure you find your own reasons for the movie's success.
This film has many memorable scenes and a very moving ending.
It also has the most realistic depiction of the afterlife that I've seen, so far.
9.Field Of Dreams
Baseball is only a background for this movie. To me, the film is about dreams that never die even though the souls
may move on to other lives. The field of dreams could be anywhere that humans and spirits meet.
10.Play It Again,Sam
Do you remember when Woody Allen used to be very funny and profound at the same time?
The most memorable line from the movie? "I never met a dame that didn't understand a slap on the face or a slug from a forty-five".
