  • Awards: 8 Academy Award Nominations (Won 4)

Another Christopher Nolan film that’ll blow your mind is Inception. We’ll try to explain this movie without it getting too wild. Imagine you are an important person who has information one can use against you or those you know. In this world, that information can be accessed via your dreams. Architects can make the dream world or reality seem realistic enough to get the info they need. Due to this, some are hired to protect people from this and help them see when attacks are present. Yet to do this, they need to access dreams too…and they can then take information as well. Trust no one!

  • Awards: None

Tombstone might be the best western movie ever. If nothing else, it is the best of this generation and certainly among the classic movies of our time. The movie revolves around Wyatt Earp and his brothers along with Doc Holiday. The Earps travel to Tombstone, Arizona in the 1880s where they try to stay out of the law field but are pulled back in due to local outlaws. This is the infamous location of the gunfight at the O.K. Corral and the setting of the infamous Earp Vendetta Ride. All of which really happened, but the specifics are still debated.

Django Unchained

  • Awards: 2 Academy Awards & 2 Golden Globe Awards

Okay, we’re done discussing Tarantino movies now. Django Unchained might be his best work. He decided to mix his style into the Spaghetti Western genre and give a revisionist tribute to the era. Specifically when it comes to the 1966 Italian film, Django. Jamie Foxx plays Django, a black slave who is bought by a German bounty hunter. The German makes Django his partner and trains him to be a bounty hunter all with the ultimate goal of reuniting him with his long-lost wife. The script and acting in this film is off the charts amazing.

Forrest Gump

Tom Hanks plays Forrest Gump, a relatively unintelligent fellow who finds himself in historic events for his entire life. He manages to go to the University of Alabama where he’s coached by Bear Bryant. He joins the Vietnam War where he is honored for his heroics. Gump then goes on to get involved in the shrimp field to create the Bubba Gump Shrimp Corporation where he becomes quite wealthy. All while the love of his life, Jenny, is in and out of his life for decades. While Gump might not be the smartest man, he’s certainly one of the luckiest.
