Most movies in todays industry aren't made for the art of it. They seem to lack in creativity and beautiful imagery. Tell me your pick for 'Beautiful'.
I like Quiet City, an indie film I have reviewed, it is mumblecore and realistic, it just shows people the story can end happily
There are a few that come to mind, "My Sisters Keeper" is a beautiful story as well as "The Time Travelers Wife" and "Titanic" was visually impressive
My favourite movie is SOPHIE'S CHOICE by Alan Pakula and starring the incredible MERYL STREEP. It is heavy subject matter but it is handled with such dignity and grace and is so true to William Styron's novel. Originally Barbra Streisand wanted to play Sophie.
Another of my favourites ( again with heavy subject matter ) is A BEAUTIFUL MIND with Russell Crowe. When hi wife says to him " I need to believe that something wonderful will happen. " It's one of the most poignant moments in the movie. Pity he missed out on the Oscar though.
My favorite movie of all time is MOONSTRUCK, with Cher, Nicolas Cage, Olympia Dukakis, Danny Aiello, John Mahoney and the late Vincent Gardenia. I think that the word "beautiful" as it applies to a move refers to how that movie affects the viewer. I've watched this movie over and over since the late '80s, and I never fail to be delighted with the musical score and performances by each one of the actors. MOONSTRUCK, even more than the dramas in which Cher starred, proved to me that she was a very good (and under-appreciated) actor. Nick Cage, who can go over-the-top when allowed by his directors, was perfect casting for his role.
I also love the movie GOODNIGHT MISTER TOM, starring the late John Thaw, which was shown on PBS' Masterpiece Theatre and made available on DVD. It never fails to touch me, even though the scenes and dialogue are now familiar. This is another one that bears repeat viewing.
"Beauty", as it relates to a movie, is indeed in the eye, ear and mind of the beholder. Beauty doesn't mean the same to everyone, thank goodness.
"Happyness" I felt this was a well put together movie, and based on a true story. The Actor who featured in this, had his own son, who played the boy. What an awesome movie!
Cinema Paradiso . Hands down one of the best movies I have ever seen
"Close encounters of the third kind" - Good sci-fi, funny, great ending, fantastic special effects...
I loved the foreign movie "life is beautiful'. It was I think the best movie I have ever seen.
As Good As It Gets - a generally under-rated exploration of the difficulties in any relationship made extreme so that we can see parts of ourself in the characters
avatar was beautiful as far as scenery goes, but the notebook was beautiful as far as story line goes.
For me the most beautiful movie is "A walk to remember" really great story from start to finished.
What Dreams May Come was also my first thought, but second is Yuvvraaj for its uses of color and choreography, not to mention I like the music .
Any movie that is well written and acted. Doesn't have to be full of lovely scenery.
"A Beautiful Mind" was moving, sweet, inspirational and very beautiful. "A Walk to Remember" is my favorite romantic movie, so I'd have to concur that that is a beautiful love story. "Pride and Prejudice 2005" is also a favorite; the cinematography was gorgeous and it's the adaption of one of history's most admired loved stories, so I suppose that also makes it 'beautiful.'
The Fifth Element stands out in my mind as a movie that is just perfect.
The story is simple and sweet, and it's an elegantly woven tale with an ending that makes my heart pound every time. There's no wasted talent and it's just sci-fi enough to be interesting without being overpowered by overly dramatic CGI.
I gotta say I thought about this for a while and the best I could come up with was Pan's Labyrinth. It looks beautiful AND the story is beautiful, even with all of the ugliness that's contained within it. The ending is perfectly bittersweet, and it makes me want to bawl my eyes out.
Close runner-ups: City of God, American Beauty, Mirrormask, Eternal Sunshine of a Spotless Mind, Children of Men, and V for Vendetta.
I would have to second A River Runs Through It, and add Wide Awake.
The first that springs to my mind is the 1976 version of 'A Star is Born'.
The Mission was a beautiful movie. The scenery was stunning, the music fit every scene perfectly and Robert De Niro and Jerermy Irons were perfect for their roles. Very moving indeed.
Extraordinary Measures! Great movie, very beautiful and touching! For more info read my hub review of it.
somewhere in time a 1980 time travel romance film starring Christopher Reeve,Jane Seymour and Christopher Plummer.
Wow what a beautiful film it makes me cry evrytime i watch it.
I think its my fav film of all time it sure touched me :-)
Visually I think that Avatar was the most beautiful movie I have ever seen
Visually, I would certainly opt for a Tim Burton movie. Maybe Sweeneyy Todd or Alice in Wonderland. Emotionally beautiful, I'd pick The Lion King by Disney.
Tae Guk Gi: The Brotherhood of War
Its a South Korean movie about two brothers being drafted into the same unit during the Korean War. Its beautiful in many ways.
Faster Pussycat Kill Kill
Orgy of the Dead
Bride of ReAnimator
Natural Born Killers
Cinema Paradiso, La Vita e' Bella, Il Postino, Miyazaki...what Greek One chose.
Powder - One of the most tragic, fascinating and powerful movies I have ever seen.
life is beautiful, a beautiful mind,the pianist are beautiful moviez.
BUT a beautiful movie may be difrnt for dfrnt peoople, u may find smthin as beautiful wen u find any relation for that with you
in dat wat u may like "There is Something about Mary", "Hangover"
"Fun With Dick'n'Jane"
but one day one of my friend forced me to see an old b&w film
"CASABLANCA", after watching that, though it was technically un comparable with any new or latest stuff , i thing i could enjoy ONE GREAT FILM, try to watch it before saying or thinking smthing abt dat
Has knowing how to spell just become a suggestion to people that think they can write?
I think the Internet has given crappy writers the impression that they don't have to work hard at all.
I'm with you on that one. There seems to be a theme floating around the internet telling people that if you have a keyboard and half of an idea, that you can be a professional writer.
Ever heard the expression 'Yesterday I couldn't spell writer, today I are one!'
HA... a great mistake and got enough punishment
sorry if I hurt anybody with the way i wrote,
you are right, internet is encouraging all kind of writers
including the worthless ones like......
One of the most moving films I've ever seen was The Enchanted Cottage, with Robert Young and Dorothy McGuire.
It's a film from 1945 about a very unattractive, shy, woman - a maid in an old honeymoon cottage.
She meets a dashing young pilot who comes to rent the cottage with his intended. A year passes and in that year the pilot loses his hadsome face to a terrible plane crash, and he loses his shallow minded intended bride.
He comes back to the cottage he'd once found so enchanting, only this time to hide from a life that might judge him. The maid is still there.
She knows what it feels like to be unattractive and she doesn't judge him. She only see's his beautiful heart.
She eventually builds his self esteem. He falls in love with her because he only see's her compassion and beautiful spirit.
His parents come to visit and are stunned at his face and even more that he loves such a homely woman. They're so shallow that they don't understand that the couple fell in love with who they were, not what they were. They only saw each other with their hearts.
I highly recommend this film.
Probably my altime favorite is Steele Magnolias, it was funny and light hearted at times, yet had a touching and heartwrenching story, and I feel it really did show how it is in the South the way women relate to one, really rally around when life gets too hard to bear.
The most beautiful movie I think was 'On a Clear Day you can see Forever'. I am psychic, and can therefore relate personally to such thoughts as were behind this story. Non-psychics cannot accept such ideas, because these ideas are not in their lives, in their concepts, to them there can be no reality to this type of concept; but if you yourself have such experiences you cannot deny them - they are part of your life.
easily "Into the Wild"
beautiful looking, beautiful sounding and a genuinely beautiful story
Some Chinese flicks:
House of Flying Daggers
Curse of the Golden Lotus
Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon
Yimou's films are certainly visually gorgeous. He's got a really incredible eye for color and composition, and his movies move like water.
For me personally, when I think of beauty in film I often think of Terrence Mallick's films. They've got a sad lyricism and poetic quality, both visually and in writing and performance. "Badlands" is particularly stunning.
Living In Oblivion was beautifully shot. Half was in black and white the other other in color with a lot of primary colors that just popped.
In the Soup. All black and white which made a lot of the shots and actors stunning.
Big Fish and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind also.
A movie that pulls your heart out of your chest, twists it around for an hour or so, then puts it back in, leaving you breathless, but also with a soft smile.
I'm thinking of What Dreams May Come, and Mr Nobody at the moment, but there is plenty of others. If you haven't seen Mr Nobody yet, go see it, I absolutely loved it!
i agree abt miyazaki. the royal tenenbaums is a beautiful film.
need a good touch of comedy sentiment romance and the ultimate action...
Everyone should watch, Love Actually, at least once. I've seen it a number of times. It is funny, sad, and heartwarming.
If you've never heard of it, it is about different kinds of love.
Young innocent love, adult passionate love, love for family, unrequited love, love of friends, and it points out that people find love in unexpected places.
It's not the most profound movie, probably but very poignant.
I love it.

The James Cameron film. Just wondering what everyone's take on the hype around it is thus far?Personally, I find Cameron to be vastly overrated as a director; with Terminator and Aliens being the only REALLY good films he's ever done and while T2 was entertaining, it was a massive cheese-fest and...
