Drama:Dead Poets Society It might be cliché to have a Robin Williams film on this list, as most everyone has watched at least one of his movies since he passed. However, I can't think of a better drama to include on this list. There's a touch of humor and a lot of heart as it shows the importance of literature and self-expression. A young Ethan Hawke and Robert Sean Leonard joins Williams as two of his students.
Horror:Nosferatu Nothing is more horrific than Dracula. F.W Murnau's silent film captures the terror and spookiness of Bram Stoker's classic tale without any spoken word. The lighting and techniques used to create this masterpiece were revolutionary for its time. Even today, it's a breathtaking work of cinema. As there was no official trailer for the movie, the video below was made by a university student as a project.
Fantasy: Pan's Labyrinth This is not your ordinary fantasy film. It's not Princess Bride or Ella Enchanted. It's spooky and haunting. This tour de force allows the magic to mingle with reality as WWII looms on Spain. This is not a film to watch with a younger audience, but that does not diminish the majesty of this work.
Comedy:Young Frankenstein Frankenstein is a classic tale of what if. What if we could create man? Would this being be human or monster or a mix of both? It's a horrific story. This Mel Brook's classic takes this story and puts a marvelously funny twist on the idea. However, the jokes do not weaken the moral and heart - they add to it.
Foreign: Spirited Away This movie is from Disney, but it's not your normal Disney film. Animated by Studio Ghibli, viewers are treated to a fantasy adventure steeped with Japanese culture, myths, and life. Full of morals and tenderness as well as a gorgeous soundtrack and animation this is a marvelous film for the whole family. So, what did you think? Did you see any of these films? Sound off below!
