Honestly this is one of the hardest articles I had to write so far. It is very hard to pick only ten movies for this list. I tried to pick from a list that stuck with me and researched them as they came to me and looked at the popularity. If they made the list of popularity then I listed them here, this way it is not just strictly my own opinion. I also tried to think of a variety so you are not looking at just one kind of movie.
So here it goes, hopefully you can find some you may want to see or some you have already enjoyed!
The Notebook 2004
Nicholas Sparks writes great romance books and so the movies are a must see. The preview captured my eyes as a wonderful love story. You can see that she ended up having two choices in men and it fills you with curiosity. Not only is it a must read but also a must see movie. Wonderful characters and a great plot. Trailer was made to make you want to see more, since it showed the true side of the characters in such a short time. A great movie that most people had to run out and put in their collection.
Shaun of the Dead 2004
This one put a comical spin on a zombie movie, so it had to be fantastic. If you are into zombie movies, most likely you want to see every single one that is made. Zombie movies can be addicting and are either really scary or really funny or both. This one was strictly funny! They literally just show the news on the television and then have a zombie in their living room right away. It is filled with action and some corny silly drama.
The Descent 2005
I actually screamed during the trailer because it freaked me out so bad. Let that give you a laugh! If you are looking to watch a scary dramatic movie, this is a must see. I love scary movies so I had to see it and it had my heart pumping while I watched it. It is no surprise as a popular pick.
American Gangster 2007
This movie is based on a true story which right from that line gets people interested. It is a story of this gangster in America that seems to have his life very well put together. It may be a life of crime and ruling the streets but he has lots of success in doing so. The cop on the other hand has a different story of him being the most dangerous person in New York at the time. The cop had a mission to put him behind bars. Two different worlds fighting for what they believe in and sticking up for families. A great movie filled with action, drama, and lots of crime.
This movie seemed like a cute yet tragic love story. All about the happenings of some high school kids jumping into things they shouldn’t be and the consequences. The actors played their parts well and made their characters believable. There were many metaphors that could make you smile. Music was catchy and will have you singing the next day. The trailer was well made and made you curious enough to want to watch it whether you are male or female.
The Strangers 2008
I jumped because I was so scared watching the trailer. It is a story inspired by true events which leaves you wondering how this story got to be told. This couple appeared to be in love but had underlying issues to confront. Masked killers are torturing them and they are in the house before the characters even see them. It is frightening that they say to the couple that the only reason they were doing these things is because they were home. It makes your own home not seem so safe anymore. This movie had mixed views, so it depends on the person if you would like it or not.
Dark Knight 2008
If you are a big fan of the batman movies, then you will love this one. This one appeared to have much more action and dramatic scenes than the other ones. New actors but played so well that it didn’t end up bothering you in any way. The characters true colors really shined in this one. Definitely a great movie to see if you haven’t already.
Exciting music that keeps you entertained while watching the trailer, wonderful colors and characters. Looks like an interesting plot that you have to watch in order to see what happens. Some movies you can have your predictions before you even watch the movie, but this is not one of the. It has you wondering all the way to the end.
Looked like a war movie, but then showed so many beautiful creatures which made the movie look more interesting. Some were flying and eating people out of a helicopter, yet looked like a love story. So the plot seemed huge and had you wondering or running to the theater to see it. Definitely best seen in the theater, but makes a great movie for the home collection too.
The Twilight Saga: New Moon 2010
Even if you didn’t see the first movie, this movie looked very interesting and made you want to see it. It had lots of new characters and more action than the first movie. It had more graphics and looked exciting. All of the Twilight fans should have been happy with this one. But of course the plot in the trailer left you guessing, so you had to go see it. Unless you read the books, than obviously you would know more than others. Don’t fool yourself, it’s better than the book.
