Over the years, Hollywood (the film industry in America) has been known to deliver classics after classics.
Getting millions of people around the world to watch, the industry rakes in billions of dollars every year. Unlike in many other countries, the film industry in America is actually very important to the economy.
The quality of the movies made in America is high, and that’s why they obviously get all the buzz. Since Citizen Kane became a blockbuster in the 1940s, Hollywood has not relented one bit. The outcome? Incredible classic movies that you gotta watch at least once in your lifetime!
1. The Godfather (1972)Most people these days don’t wanna watch a movie made in the 70s, because it feels ‘old’ and archaic. But the thing people don’t know is, films like The Godfather are classics and references from them can still be found in movies made today.
“The Godfather” helped set the tone for all the films about the Italian Mob and Sicilian Mafia that came after it. It’s where the iconic character of Don Corleone is from.
2. The Matrix (1999)With a star cast that has Keanu Reeves and Laurence Fishburne among others, The Matrix quickly became a fan favourite around the early 2000s.
It’s most likely because people are fascinated by the idea that the world we live in today might not be real, and that we might not have a choice and we’re just doing what we’ve been programmed to do. The movie also has some impeccable acting and is an element in pop culture.
3. Se7enThis psychological thriller is about two police officers (played by Morgan Freeman and Brad Pitt) who are after a serial killer. The movie is based on the seven deadly sins and is very touching, to say the least.
4. Titanic (1997)For more than a decade, Titanic was the highest-grossing film of all time. The romantic movie, which stars Leonardo DiCaprio, is about the sinking of the Titanic ship in 1912, a story we all know too well.
If you don’t know that story, watching the movie might be a good place to start. It’s an amazing story.
