1. Citizen Kane. This is a movie done by Orson Welles. He wrote and directed this film. It is considered the best movies about enlightenment ever made by many intelligent people. That is the main reason that I put it at the top of my list. I actually don’t care much for Orson Welles. From what I can tell, he lived kind of a crummy life. He wasn’t very nice to people, and he cheated on his wife. Maybe he was great at making movies and plays, but I wouldn’t want to have worked with the guy. So, while this movie makes the top of my list, I’d like to say that Orson Welles was a bad man.
2. Singing in the Rain. This movie is a lot of fun because there’s this one part where a guy dances around in the rain while he is singing. I mean, why wouldn’t you love a movie that has a part like that? Besides that, the movie is a great slapstick affair. There are tons of funny sight gags that are great to watch. It’s hard to imagine that Hollywood ever had the patience to create a movie like this. It’s really true, they don’t make them like they used to.
3. The Matrix. This movie has a ton of bullets that totally fly around people because they know how to dodge them. You don’t get much better than that. I mean, tons of movies have tried to copy this, but this is the original. It’s exciting, and it has its own unique feel to it. I watch this movie when I want to see awesome action.
4. Dick Tracy. This movie is about a detective that has a telephone in his watch. Anyone who has ever wanted to have a telephone in their watch will love this movie. It also has a ton of explosions which are great, but the best part of this movie is the watch that is also a telephone. That watch is just about the coolest thing in the world.
5. The Oscars. This really isn’t a movie, but it’s a special that they have every year that highlights the best movies of the year. I include this in my list because it’s how I find out about great movies that I may have missed during the year. It’s worth more than just one movie because of all the movies it tells me about.
