It’s hard to only pick a few movies that I love with all my heart, but I’m gonna try…
Back to the Future, The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, Halloween, Drugstore Cowboy, The Outsiders, The Warriors, the list goes on and on…
What movie do you think is simply amazing?
Here’s what AskReddit users had to say.
1. Still holds up.
I was 4 years old when I saw it in theaters for the first time and I still remember the awe I felt at the animation and the music.
Still my favorite to this day!”
“I will never not feel in awe of Titanic.
That opening scene with the first shot of the Titanic and the swelling music.”
3. Have you seen it?
“Mouse Hunt is legitimately one of the funniest movies I’ve ever seen.
Ernie (Nathan Lane) covered in mousetraps and dripping with liquid s**t:
“Look, we don’t have the time or energy to deal with these petty problems now! We’re in the middle of an extensive renovation!”
Man from bank:
“Looks like you’re off to a great start.”
Not to mention Christopher Walken’s role as Caesar the Exterminator.”
4. All about imagination.
Beautiful backgrounds, interesting character designs, seamless blend of 2D and 3D that was way ahead of its time, and a fun melding of past and futuristic.
It captured my imagination like no other film had or has since.”
“Ever After (1999).
There’s something super magical and special about it’s storyline and the genuine love between the main characters.
Also, I’m a sucker for Cinderella.”
“The Secret of Nimh.
This movie was anchored in my childhood.
I re-watched it recently and was instantly reminded how comforting Mrs. Brisby’s voice was.
Cheesy and heavy-handed at times, but well-cast and heartwarming. A wonderful combination of coming-of-age and classic adventure storytelling, with a healthy dose of whimsy and wholesome life lessons.
Plus, Berkeley Breathed (of Bloom County & Opus) drew the comics that adult Walter has in his studio in the intro/epilogue.”
8. A classic!
“Big Trouble in Little China.
The best scene is when they drink the magic tonic. When they’re all in the elevator together and start to get the “I feel awesome” effect.
Cheers me up every time I watch it.
What a great movie.”
9. One of my favorites.
“Stand By Me.
It’s a great film. it’s such a wonderful film of childhood and friendships.
It always reminds me of my childhood and the adventures we’d go on. We never found a d**d body though.
For the record this has been my favorite film of all time since it came out. I love it so much.”
“Beetlejuice Its one of my favourite movies ever made.
It’s really hard to explain how it influenced me but it really is a magical movie. Thank you now I’m going to watch it once again!
If you never saw Beetlejuice you must. It is truly a magnificent movie.”
11. Need to revisit this one.
“My Cousin Vinny.
The more I watch it, the more brilliant it is.
It never gets old.”
“The Lost Boys.
Every film should have a topless mulleted man playing saxaphone.
That scene on the railway bridge where they drop gets me up every time.”
13. The original.
“The original Jungle Book
The hand-drawn animations still look amazing, the musical numbers are great, Kaa and Shere-Kahn are both still terrifying.
I want to be adopted by Baloo and Bagheera.”
