There are lots and lots of movies which stood the test of time. Some movies achieved the cult status over the period of time. In this post we are going to talk about few movies which celebrated or will celebrate it’s 20th anniversary this year. The list are my favorite movies that had a great cultural significance be it the genre or the movie business. I am going to present you four movies which according to me are significant in their own sense. They might or might not be classic but suddenly they had an influence and changed the course of various things.
Directed by Mel Gibson the film became so iconic and became the father of all medieval war drama. The movie praised the character and the exaggerated William Wallace not only got the attention but also the Scottish lands too. After the release of the movie the tourists to the land increased to a greater extent. More than 39% told that the movie influenced them i
n visiting the place. Of course the movie faced many controversies and still standing for the making. Mel Gibson’s portrayal of William Wallace is still remembered for bravery in many movie circuit on sketching a brave king.
For any teens out there who have seen Bond movies in theatre will remember the name Pierce Brosnan synonyms to the word James Bond. After a long hiatus and not so good response from the Timothy Dalton movies this came as a fresh air for the Bond fans. Brosnan brought a charm to the already charming character of James Bond, not a rusty MI6 Spy. This movie can be said as a reboot of the series. It featured Judi Dench as M for the first time and of course Sean Bean as the antagonist. Of course he dies in the movie, it can’t be spoiler alert anymore.
The Usual Suspects:
Bryan Singer’s debut movie which laid the foundation to the lots and lots of movie with twist in the end. Although I can’t deny movie with twist in the end came before and after this movie had an influence and created a following for the character Keyser Soze. The role also bought Kevin Spacey an Oscar. The movie was so iconic that whenever you see a mugshot line up, it is symbolic representation of Usual Suspects. The title is inspired from the movie Casablanca starring one of my favorite and one of the most stylish actor of all time Humphrey Boghart. One important thing is the movie got high acclaim but Roger Ebert gave the film one and a half stars and added it to the list of most hated films of the year.
This movie released in 1995 changed the course of action of animation on the entirely. What it did was break the notion that animation is for kids and presented a movie so deep in emotion that it also can be enjoyed and appreciated by the adults. PIXAR presented a beautiful movie that portrayed emotions through the toys and told us their arrival subtly. Of course Jobs played a major role in bringing this project. More than anything to say it has shown and today there won’t be a movie buff who haven’t watched the movie more than that who haven’t like this movie. The story of the company itself fascinating. The company which started to make machines to produce animation wanted to show how accurate their product and created animated shorts. On one occasion I presume that it is Steve Jobs who pitched the idea of creating their own movies and he is the one who got the Disney Contract too rest is the legacy. It was also the savior for Disney.
