Best movies

What are some of the best movies in your own opinion? I haven't watched most movies/'classics' that people talk about but i'm not sure which ones I actually need to watch and which movies are overrated.

Any good movie (or Netflix series) suggestions would be greatly appreciated as I've finished my A-levels and have loads of free time!

Thank you! :smile:

You mentioned 'classics' so...
Labyrinth
monty python and the Holy grail
All 3 of the back to the future movies
The Matrix (haven't watched 2 and 3 so I don't know what there like)
Bednobs and broomsticks
Marry Poppins
Nanny Mcfee
Nanny Mcfee and the big bang
And that's all I can think of right know

And you definitely need to see Baz Luhrmann's romeo and juliet

Have you watched the Midnight Express?!
A real-story drama released sometime in the late 70s

Most movies are pretty trashy but the one that I found that was decent was American Psycho. It's definitely not for all audiences though, you probably won't like it. I wouldn't recommend you watch it for entertainment.
Best movies is a matter of taste. I am a bit tired to name my favorites again.

It does seem like a classic though and the reviews look pretty good.
