The world recently discovered a new first-world problem; running out of new content to watch! Reruns of old shows and movies might be good-enough entertainment for a certain but once the nostalgic honeymoon period gets over we need something reliable to fall back to. For this, we bring to you a list of must-watch Hollywood movies. These movies are so evergreen that they are some of the most watchable movies of Hollywood.
If you say you didn’t expect this movie to be on this list, then you’re a liar! The Shawshank Redemption is a movie that will never go out of fashion, and keep teaching us lessons of never losing hope and friendship.
The reboot of the Superman franchise that also helmed the launch of DCU is one movie we can never get enough of! The sheer scale of the movie, the emotions involved with the origins of Superman and General Zod’s relentless pursuit of reestablishing Krypton makes up for an enthralling journey.
Detective John McClane’s “Yippee-ki-yay, m*********r” holds a special place in the heart of every Die Hard fan! His one-liners, his devil-may-care attitude and his kick-ass moves has made Die Hard one of the best action-franchises of all time but the first movie still continues to be our favorite.
It takes a lot to stand out among the sea of disaster movies that have explored almost all the possible ways Earth could meet its end and Armageddon achieves this by not having a too unique a disaster or with a too good a script, it does so by bringing together a lot of hard-hitting actors together and letting them to do what each of them does best. Oh and don’t forget the whole idea of hiring an oil-well drilling crew to drill holes in an asteroid.
What happens when one of the most prolific film-makers of all time takes up the task of breathing life into a dark and gritty comic book character on whom multiple movies already exist? You get a cinematic masterpiece such as The Dark Knight trilogy!
Shrek is just plain and simple story-telling done with perfection. Everything about it and all the characters in it just work! Besides who can ignore the huge impact it had on our childhoods along with a handful of other animated movies.
There’s just something about this Jason Statham and Brad Pitt starrer that gets you hooked to it the moment you start watching it. Maybe it’s the brutal Britishness of the characters in the movies, maybe it’s the conniving script, maybe it’s the dark-yet-comedic tone of the movie, or maybe all of it that works in its favour.
Gladiator was a project of enormous scale and it definitely shows. To capture an era that is known as much for its opulence as it is known for its practice of slavery, and do it so well that you win an Oscar for it, now that is filmmaking at its best!
The Godfather is so well known that it needs no introduction. Nearly 50 years after its release, it still continues to be one of the best Hollywood movies ever made. You can’t watch it without falling in love with its timeless characters.
WALL-E is based on the premise that when humanity transgresses the societal norms that hold us together and become so dependent on technology that the technology we designed hundreds of years ago starts to feel more human than us. It is one of the best and most rewatchable movies to come out of the Pixar camp.
