YOUR "YOU'VE GOT TO SEE THIS" MOVIES

Whether it's about book-loving girl who falls in love with an unruly beast, a 1962 Summer spent playing baseball in an abandoned lot, a galaxy far, far away, or one of the other millions of cinematic stories that have given us all the feels, I want to know about them and why *you* love them so.
  1. This is where a good host of a suggestion list might give an example or two to help get things started but since at least 82% of my lists are about films, I'm going to take a pass and instead turn it over to you. 😎
  2. Slumdog Millionaire
    My favprite movie of all time ever. Dev Patel perfectly executes this role as an unassuming, painfully-sincere guy who learns love in the hardest way. A love story that's more about life than romance. Incredible cinematography. Great soundtrack. Beautiful cast. 10/10 as far as I'm concerned. This movie made me me.

  3. The Godfather
    Apparently there are some people who have never seen this film. 😳 From the first time I saw it, I have loved EVERYTHING about it: acting - script - music - cinematography. After seeing this classic, I was desperate to go to Italy and to learn Italian, and I eventually achieved my goals! I love spotting homages to this film in programmes from The Simpsons to Modern Family. I love the sequel too. ❤️❤️❤️

  4. There are more important movies and certainly favorites of all time, but I'm gonna stick within your title parameters, so I asked myself, when is the last time I said "you've gotta see this movie!"😃

  5. Ratatouille
    What's not to love about this movie? It's set in France, is all about food, and features a smart rat and an awkward garbage boy. I've loved this movie ever since I saw it, and it never gets old. My favorite Pixar movie by far.

  6. Black Narcissus
    A story about a group of nuns who travel to the mountains of India to establish a new convent. If that sounds stuffy or dull, you're way off; this isn't Hollywood, it's Powell and Pressburger. The film has a perverse sense of humor and it's actually kind of fucked up. Deborah Kerr leads a mostly female cast.

  7. The secret life of Walter Mitty
    Wonderful cinematography, great scenes, and an emotional style of telling a impressive story.

  8. Camila. Argentina.
    A woman from a wealthy family longs for a man she can respect. And falls for a reform minded priest. Based on a true story. MUST SEE.

  9. The Namesake
    I watched this movie for the first time a few weeks ago and it is an absolutely beautiful story. I've seen it again since then and it was still just as wonderful

  11. Kinky Boots
    Honestly one of my favorites and so underrated. Wonderful story of changing perspectives to change with the times. Recommended over everything to everyone when I worked at blockbuster.

  12. Pride.
    It makes me smile and cry. A part of recent history I was only vaguely aware of. I like watching British movies for a different take on things. Almost highly recommend Truly, Madly, Deeply!
