Respond to at least two of your classmate’s posts (make sure they are well thought out posts to earn points)First post :
Top 10 Movies:
1. The Matrix (1999)- This movie changed the game of action film. It was not just
explosions, gunfire, and people dying like all the other action films before it, this film
had meaning, a plot that takes his viewer on a mind adventure, to make his viewer
think deeply about their own life and the reason that they are here. With religion tied
in, this movie shows a unique twist on the hero’s journey on how the hero rebels and
becomes a saint, “the one”, the messiah, of their world. People still talk about this
movie till this day, all the theories, explanations, and thoughtful conversations being
discussed on a daily basis about the story and the meaning of this movie. That is
why I put this as number 1.
2. Titanic (1997)- Even though I have not fully seen this movie nor really like this
movie, but Titanic (1997) made people go crazy about this romance movie. In
elementary school, middle school, high school, and now I here girls just talking
about this movie non stop, wishing they can have a relationship like the two main
characters (even though Leo dies at the end), singing the movies “theme song”
by Céline Dion, “My Heart Will Go On “, and girls having movie nights viewing this
movie(even though they seen it thousands of times). This movie was also the
second largest grossing movie that earned $1,021,633,200, that is why I am ranking
this movie as number 2.
3. Star Wars (1977)- This movie has developed an empire of loyal fans and has grown
in size ever since it came out. This movie was so popular till this day that Disney
created a land for it in Disneyland and Disneyworld. But there are some die hard
fans and some people who know nothing about Star Wars because it is too
complicated to follow, so that is why I am ranking this movie as number 3.
4. Toy Story (1995)- This movie changed the way animation was made in movies,
shows, and short films. Not only this movie was part of a bunch of peoples
childhood, Toy Story has made Pixar grow into a well loved film company which
Disney picked up and made more nostalgic movies and shorts for all people to love
and enjoy. Toy Story was the starting point to all loved Pixar movies, so that is why I
am ranking this as number 4.
5. Jaws (1975)- This movie changed the horror genre and flipped it on its head.
Before, the horror genre was about murderers, killers, and humans with deformities
and monstrous abilities, but when Jaws came out, the definition of a monster
changed dramatically. This movie made people have a fear of sharks in nature, this
movie had people have a fear of water in general. This was an introduction to killer
animals that would make people fear for their own life. That is why I am ranking this
as number 5.
6. Forrest Gump (1994)- This movie gave hope and pride to people with a mental
disability showing the hard life of Forrest Gump going through trauma, bullying, and
the good life after accomplishing a goal. This movie was also memorable because of
the clean CGI of a wounded soldier and the iconic Bubba which developed a
restaurant called “Bubba Gump Shrimp Co”. This is why I am rating this as number
7. Back to the Future (1985)- This iconic movie set off a fandom of science fiction and
the wonders of the future. This movie was so remarkable that people still talk about
it till this day and inspiration from this movie is put in multiple films such as, Rick and
Morty and Stranger Things. That is why I am rating this movie as a 7.
8. Pulp Fiction (1994)- Just like the Titanic movie, I have not seen this movie fully, but
I have heard a lot of people, mostly men, talk about this movie excessively. Men
repeating lines that Samuel L. Jackson says, putting up posters of the film with Uma
Therman on it, and then making memes about the scenes in the movie (which is
hilarious by the way). That is why I am ranking this as number 8.
9. The Shawshank Redemption (1994)- This iconic jailbreak movie had viewers feel
like they were part of the movie while feeling incarcerated with the main character
and the holding of breath scenes when it was time to break out of that prison. I
believe everyone past the age of 20 has seen this movie once, which is why I am
ranking this as number 9.
10. Ferris Bueller’s Day Off (1986)- We all wanted to be rebels as a teenager, we all
wanted to feel grown up and to be free, and this movie shows us what it was like to
have one day off of school and not being told what to do for once. Those days of
being free and living your best life resonates with adults and teenagers themselves
wishing they can do what Ferris did. This movie inspired a bunch of filmmakers to
show the life of a teenager and the rebellious feelings on what it is like to be a
teenager, with Disney Channel and Nickelodeon shows showing the life of a
teenager to connect teenage viewers towards the main character. That is why I am
rating this as number 10.

Hi . Great post, I just want to add something a few movies I haven’t watched it, but I do
remember watching the movie Forrest Camp in Middle school I do like it at that time because
like you have mentioned that people without disabilities see how it was very hard, dealing with
bullying. Great movie suggestion. Thanks for sharing.
To preface this, I personally think it’s a little foolish to rank artistic endeavors with that
being said here is my list for the greatest films of all time. I like movies, so I’m excited
for this one.
1. Citizen Kane (1941) dir. Orson Welles: I believe this to be the greatest film of all time
to it’s invention of new cinegraphic techniques, as well as innovative use of old one.
It’s storytelling and cinematography were unparalleled for it’s time, and it’s still a
stand out film compared to modern day cinema.
2. The Godfather (1972) dir. Francis Ford Coppola: This epic film (just a hair
under hours long) tells the trials and tribulations of an italian mafia family. This is
one of the greatest films of all time due to its masterful storytelling. It may be the
closest thing to a novel that has appeared on screen. Plus it left us with some of the
best lines in cinema history, who could forget “I’ll make you an offer you can’t
3. 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968) dir. Stanley Kubrick: This film paved the way for the
sci-fi genre. Kubrick’s use of effects here is just masterful, and some of the shots are
perplexing when you wonder how they did that with no digital effects whatsoever. It
also shows wonderful use of sound, or the lack thereof.
4. 8½ (1963) dir. Federico Felini: A surreal and absurd examination of an artist having
a little bit of a mental breakdown. An often funny look at something that shouldn’t be.
It paved the way for the films that play a little bit away from reality, dreamlike, and
magical realism, such as in films like Big Fish or anything David Lynch has ever
been involved with.
5. Psycho (1960) dir. Alfred Hitchcock: The preeminator of horror. If you’ve ever been
afraid or scared by a film it all owes to this one. The entire genre of horror would be
nowhere without this.
6. The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly (1966) dir. Sergio Leone: The quintessential
western. The western archetype of good guy and bad guys, law and outlaws is on
display here in a fantastic story. The influence of the western story made its mark on
American culture. While the cowboy era only lasted for a little more than a decade
after the civil war, films using it to illustrate the perils of the human condition
remained extremely popular into the late 1960’s
7. Star Wars (1977) dir. George Lucas: A sci-fi adventure reminiscent of serials like
Flash Gordon. This film is worth mentioning alone for its influence on the rise of
merchandising, Star Wars toys make more money than Star Wars films! A classic
tale based on the Hero’s Journey trope, filled with dazzling special effects.
8. Silence Of The Lambs (1991) dir. Jonathan Demme: A crime drama in which an fbi
seeks the assistance of cannibal and psychologist Hannibal Lector to assist in
finding a serial killer.
9. Seven Samurai (1954) dir. Akira Kurosawa: This movie paved the way for every
action adventure that came forth. Every character is fully developed, lending a depth
to the story. An absolute masterclass in how to tell a singular story that develops
from that of many charachter’s stories.
10. Blazing Saddles (1974) dir. Mel Brooks: A cowboy comedy from one of the greatest
comedic minds. A parody of the cowboy genre, this movie is absolutely silly.
Slapstick comedy, witty lines, and the first movie to ever use a fart sound. This
movie is absolutely every form of not politically correct, but it does this in such a way
that it never feels derogatory.
Here’s my personal list of favorite films, in no particular order
2)The Royal Tenenbaums
5)No Country For Old Men
10)The Fog of War: Eleven Lessons From the Life of Robert S. McNamara

Hi . Great post, I do like to say that none of the movies I have seen, but the most that have
caught my eyes is the movie called, “The Silence of the Lamp”. after reading your description of
