What movies will become classics in 50 Years?
The Bottom Line Which movies of the 90s will film students be talking aboutin 2050? This list consists of my choices of movies that should become classicsin the future.
The problem with the 1990s is that those years are still fresh in ourmemory and times haven’t changed that much. The 00s of today are almostinterchangeable with the last decade. It is still too early to tell what movieswill become classics and what movies will become dated. Most of the big stars ofthe 90s arrived through smaller movies of the 1980s. The biggest stars of thenext decade probably started in the 90s and their initial movies, nowoverlooked, may become future classics.接下来为大家介绍"解惑雅思口语能用上的movie话题整理"
All of the movies on my list are included because I enjoyed the direction,acting, writing or cinematography more than other movies released during theperiod. This list will likely change over time far more than my top ten moviesof other decades. For instance, "Casablanca" has been a favorite of mine forover 30 years. It has aged well and will continue to age well. Humphrey Bogartand Ingred Bergman went on to make more great movies which only made"Casablanca" more endearing. Other attempts at the same genre have not tarnishedthe merits of the 50+ year old movie. The movies that I have seen since have notdisplaced it as my favorite whereas, I may feel different about any of thesemovies two years from now. It takes time for a movie to be earn the label"timeless."
These movies may be timeless but we will have to wait for another couple ofdecades for a proper evaluation.
10. Dances With Wolves (1990)
There are very few good civil war films and the beginning for "Dances WithWolves" is stunning as it is set during a wonderfully filmed battle. There werealso very few good westerns made during the previous two decades, but this filmwas able to break the trend and deliver a compelling historical drama about lifewith the Sioux Indians. the buffalo hunt is spectacular and demonstrates thevastness and beauty of the country.
9. Three Colors Blue, White, Red (1994)
The three colors of the French flag are made into three different movies.Other than a short one minute period, the films do not interrelate other thaneach uses an assigned color throughout the film. The "Blue" movie is heavy, the"White" movie colorless and the "Red" movie alive. Other movies have used colorfor effectiveness, but a movie titled with a color has to pass more scrutiny.The artistic quality in all three films made the viewing an enjoyableexperience.
8. Home Alone (1990)
Another genre that had been unsuccessful for years was the slapstickcomedy. This story about a little boy protecting his home from bumbling crookshad all of the right ingredients; good vs. bad, youth vs. age, and brain vs.brawn. The Rube Goldberg like contraptions coupled with the comedic talents ofDaniel Stern and Joe Pesci provide an entertainment that had almost become alost art form.
7. Shakespeare in Love (1998)
This movie would get my vote for the best dialogue of the decade. It mayhave been the best dialogue since "All about Eve." A film about the greatestplaywright in history would receive some brilliance just from the subjectmatter. But brilliance also shines through with screenwriting, set design,costumes and direction. Although homage is paid to the Bard in style andcontent, I actually liked the movie more than most of his plays.
6. Braveheart (1995)
"Dances with Wolves" was an epic western that worked for actor turneddirector Kevin Costner. In similar ways, "Braveheart" works the same for MelGibson. In both cases, the leading actor, although powerfully played, issecondary to the cinematography, the historical crisis and the compelling story.Some movies are meant for the big screen because of their immenseness andgrandeur. "Braveheart" fills up the theater.
5. Toy Story (1995)
Disney began making quality family shows again in the 1980s. A qualityfamily show is one where the parents can enjoy it as much as the kids. "ToyStory" took it one step further and added state of the art technology to providea wonderful Disney story. We all have wondered if our toys came alive, but wenever knew that there would be so much team work.
4. Hoop Dreams (1994)
Every basketball star had a childhood that is in the background somewhere."Hoop Dreams" looks at the story another way by focusing on the child and theirdevelopment into a star. The movie was 4 1/2 years in the making and chroniclesin real life, the rising athletes. It is fascinating to watch the players growup and work through family and school challenges. Supposedly 250 hours of filmwas shot and edited to 3 hours where the viewer becomes a neighbor, classmateand spectator through the movie.
3. Saving Private Ryan (1998)
The battle scenes are vivid and extraordinary but the most riveting part ofthe movie is the story behind the mission to save Ryan. Tom Hanks plays theleader of a group of soldiers, all of whom were peaceful private citizens beforethe war. Duty and honor are emphasized as the soldiers perform their warriorresponsibilities as trained. The humanity of the individual being is illuminatedagainst the inhumanity of war.
2. Forrest Gump (1994)
I may be biased regarding this film because I grew up in a small townduring about the same time period. This is a modern day fairy tale demonstratingthat love, dignity and perseverance conquer all. "Forrest Gump’ runs the viewerthrough the entire spectrum of emotions as it tells the story of a slow thinkinginnocent kid traversing through five decades of life.
1. Schindler’s List (1993)
It may have taken until the 1990s to be able to showcase a movie about theholocaust. Shot in black and white, which provides a newsreel documentary feelfor the film, the movie takes us into the life of Oscar Schindler and the livesthat he saved. The horror of the film is that the events depicted actuallyhappened. The beauty of the film is represented by the triumph over adversitythat is so well illustrated through the lens of the camera.
