My Top Movies List

I know that no matter how much busy you are, there is always some time when you are bored. So what I advice you to do (apart from visiting my blog of course) is to watch something interesting. I have prepared a post dedicated to my favourite movies so that you can choose any of them to watch. I must tell that all are carefully chosen so each is worth watching. Trust my taste.

1) The Limitless

Eddie Morra, a burnt-out writer, discovers a top-secret pill that unlocks 100% of his brain's capacity. He instantly acquires mind-bending talents and mesmerizing visions that bring him limitless success. But his dream life soon becomes a waking nightmare.




2) The Untouchables (1+1) 

French comedy about the surprising bond between a wealthy, physically disabled nobleman and the young ex-con he hires as his caretaker. The film has received several award nominations. In France, the film was even nominated for eight Cesar Awards. 




3) Notebook

The movie focuses on an old man reading a story to an old woman in a nursing home. The story he reads follows two young lovers that were separated by parents who dissaproved  the class difference in families. 



4) The Words

A struggling young author unable to get published still manages to have a great Manhattan apartment shared with a supportive sophisticate in Dora. On their honeymoon, they come across an old briefcase in a Paris antiques shop. Back home he discovers a manuscript in the briefcase. He claims the manuscript as his own, and pays the the price that comes with the success that follows when he does.  




5) Argo

Ben Affleck's latest film as a director and actor is a memorable dramatisation of the CIA's rescue of six diplomats from Iran after the regime was overthrown, the ailing Shah was given shelter in America, resulting in the storming of the US embassy in Tehran by an angry mob demanding his return home for trial and execution.



6) Flightplan

The storyline is that a mother has somehow lost her mind or is suffering some kind of amnesia. She thinks she has lost her young girl who she thought was sitting next to her on an airplane but has somehow disappeared. She also can't seem to remember what had happened to her husband and begins searching the entire plane for her missing daughter whom nobody on the plane seems to remember ever existed on the plane.
