The Wizard of OZ
Walt Disney’s unquestioned realm is fantasy. With his clarity of vision, uncomplicated good taste, and technological ingenuity, no one else can tell a fairytale like him.
Dorothy is an orphaned girl who is dissatisfied with her life on her uncle’s farm in Kansas. She wishes to travel and her dream comes true when she is swept into the world of Oz by a magical whirlwind. There, with the help of a scarecrow, a tin man, and a cowardly lion she will try to find the Wizard of the Emerald City.
The film also teaches us how to overcome hardships and adversity! It emphasizes the value of having nice, helpful, caring, and loving friends. It encourages us to pursue our goals with zeal, to work hard, and never, ever give up. It demonstrates how to be optimistic in the face of adversity.
Vincent Vega and Jules Winnfield are a couple of thugs tasked by their master Marsellus with recovering a mystery satchel from amateur thieves. Marsellus, on the other hand, asks Vincent to look after his wife Mia while he leaves on a trip. His path will cross with that of a boxer who refuses to accept money from the mafia since he lost a fight.
Despite the fact that “Reservoir Dogs” had garnered significant attention two years prior, “Pulp Fiction” would be the film that would cement Quentin Tarantino’s place in film history.
The picture has all of the hallmarks of the talented American filmmaker and screenwriter: a strange narrative structure, snappy and insightful conversations, touches of black comedy, and visceral violence that is frequently as unjustifiable as it is addicting.
Wrapped up by audiences and critics – Palma de Oro at Cannes and the Oscar for Best Original Screenplay – the film marked the resurgence of John Travolta, who returned to the privileged places of the industry.
The Godfather, the winner of three Academy Awards, including Best Picture and Best Adapted Screenplay, is one of the most acclaimed films of all time, with a significant contribution to cinema.
This film will captivate you with its incredible depiction of the mafia and immerse you in its world from the outset while impressing you with its technical and narrative qualities.
When Vito Corleone, the ruler of one of the most powerful mafia families in New York, opposes Cosa Nostra’s entry into the drug trafficking industry, the two families clash. As a consequence, he suffers an attack that leaves him on the brink of death. T
o avenge the coup and save the family, Michael Corleone, his favorite son, who had always been on the fringes of the family’s business, must plunge into the dirty world of crime.
The first installment of the famous trilogy of “The Godfather”, which Francis Ford Coppola directed based on the homonymous novel by Mario Puzo, with the intention of capturing the world of organized crime in the United States.
The history of the Corleone family has become one of the greatest classics in film history, as well as being a huge box office success.
It won the Oscars for best film, actor (Marlon Brando), and adapted screenplay (Coppola and Mario Puzo), as well as being a candidate in six other categories.
E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial
An alien is left on Earth and is found by Elliot, a boy who hides him in his house, helped by his little sister, and baptizes him with the name ET.
While Elliot begins to establish a strong friendship with the alien, the scientists and the government is looking for him throughout the area. But soon ET will miss his home and will try to contact his fellows to come and pick him up.
Five years after the successful “Encounters in the Third Phase”, Steven Spielberg decided to return to the theme of contact with aliens.
It focused on a messianic story, written by Melissa Mathison (Harrison Ford’s then-wife), full of emotion and starring an endearing creature, who became a symbol for a whole generation. The film cemented Spielberg’s status as the film industry’s King Midas, and it went on to become the highest-grossing picture in history until “Titanic” dethroned him.
The epic movie directed by Steven Spielberg portrays the true story of German industrialist Oskar Schindler, who arrives to Nazi-occupied Poland in search of economic riches and leaves as a hero.
Oskar Schindler is a presumptuous and ambitious German businessman who uses his good relations with the Nazi gyrfalcons to get rich selling equipment to the army during World War II. But when Schindler becomes aware of what is happening to the Jews, he changes his attitude and does everything possible to save as many lives as possible.
Shot almost entirely in Poland and in daring black and white, “Schindler’s List” is Steven Spielberg’s most intense and personal work. Based on a true story, it won seven Oscars, including Best Picture, Adapted Screenplay, Director, Cinematography, and Art Direction.
The main triangle made up of Liam Neeson, Ben Kingsley, and Ralph Fiennes interprets their characters superbly. The latter, who played the Nazi officer Amon Goeth, put on 30 pounds to be more repulsive.
