2 Most Amazing Movies You Must Watch Before You Die

Updated on June 19, 2013

There are inspirational movies, crappy movies, motivational movies, many kinds of movies out there. But these two, are the kind that you don't wanna miss before you die. Check it out!

Eternal Sunshine of The Spotless Mind (Romance/Drama)

What can I say, this is the most endearing and warm romantic movie I have ever seen. The first time I took a peek at the trailer and read the synopsis I didn't think it would work. I mean, I didn't think the idea of "erasing someone from your memory using this fictional gizmo" was very appealing for a "romantic" movie. Sounded like a sci-fi movie to me. I thought it would be something like those typical romantic comedies and I'm not a big fan of romantic comedies. But someone recommended it to me, so I just went ahead and watched it. And I'm glad I watched it. I watched it again and again and it never gets old.

What makes the movie work, to me, is how it manages to capture the emotions between Joel and Clementine in a way that felt real it touches you deep in the heart. I can cry just "thinking" about the movie. Sure, the gizmo and the erasing procedure thing is fictional, but this movie is believable, it makes you believe every single thing in it is real.

I think by now I have memorized all the dialogues in the movie, having watched it way too many times now. I would recommend you to watch it, but if you are hoping for something like "The Notebook" or any of Nicholas Sparks' stuff, you're going to be disappointed, because it's not your typical romantic movies like that, I assure you. Otherwise, try it, you may like it.

The Shawshank Redemption (Drama/Crime)

One of my all-time favorites. The movie that made me fall in love with Tim Robbins. What a great actor. "Fear can hold you prisoner, hope can set you free". Damn, that was my favorite quote of all time. There are times in life that you might want to give up on your dreams, seeking for an easy way out. Or times when you feel like you have all the dreams in the world but are too afraid to go out there and do something about it. This movie reminds you of one of those times, and it reminds you not to give up on hope while searching for meaning and purpose in your life.

I've watched this movie over and over and over and it still gives me that same feeling as if I watch it for the first time. It was funny that this was adapted from Stephen King's short story (Shawshank Redemption and Rita Hayworth), because I've read quite a number of Stephen King's books and I never thought he was someone who believed in hopes and dreams so profoundly.

I think great movies are ones that no matter what year it was made in and what year you watch it, you still feel the same good vibe about it after watching it again and again. Shawshank Redemption was made in 1994, I watched it in 2007. And watched it again and again after that and I still loved it. Unlike Forrest Gump, which was made the same year, and it probably did have its moments back then, but if you watch it again now, you just can't sit through it. Period.

      Both of these movies are in the top 250 in IMDB. The Shawshank Redemption is ranked first. I haven't seen them yet, but I think I should do that before I die :)

      Thanks for dropping by and thanks the reply too, Brett! Eternal Sunshine of The Spotless Mind is my favorite movie ever. If you're not too fond of romantic movies, just try this one, it's actually a mix of everything, even though it's categorized as "romantic movie".

      Anyway, I'll be contacting you soon! :)
