15 Movies You Must See Before You Die. Part 1 (15-10)

Part 1 (15-10)

Welcome to my list of 15 Movies You Must See Before You Die!!! These are some of my favorite movies... ones that changed the way I feel about movies or made a huge impact on me. Have you seen any of these movies? Would you make any changes? What would your list be?



15.The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974) 
why you need to see it:
This is the Movie that started it all;  the first movie to have the faceless psycho killer. Before Texas Chainsaw Massacre horror films were totally different, this was the first indie slasher flick. So many have copied it since but you can never beat the original.

14. Red State (2011) 
why you need to see it:
This movie hits you like a hand grenade. It will make you see Kevin Smith in a whole new light. The stylized dialogue is still there but, gone is the witty banter and in-jokes. this is more in the vein of Tarantino movie This is straight up atmospheric thriller every plot twist hits you like a brick in the face.

13. Fight Club (1999) Rating: 
why you need to see it:
The first rule of Fight Club is: you do not talk about Fight Club! Actually everyone talks about Fight Club; that's because it's that good. This movie is a study in hypocrisy; the two leads are complete opposites  two people you never expect to get together let alone become friends.the puzzled in the movie aren't explained fully. When the surprise ending reveals itself you will start to understand. I recommend you watch Fight Club several times.

12, Trick 'r Treat (2007)
why you need to see it:
Trick 'r Treat is the quintessential Halloween movie. This Horror anthology of 4 interconnected stories has everything you need in a "scary movie". Trick 'r Treat tells story of Halloween through its urban legends.if you only watch 1 movie this Halloween season make it Trick 'r Treat.

11.  A Clockwork Orange (1971) 
why you need to see it:
I'm not sure if this was the first movie to use stylized violence, but it was the first to do it right. The  "ultra-violence" of Alex and his "droogs" is so over-the-top. this movie was poorly received on initial release; deemed too violent and immoral. Clockwork was a symbol of the changing times the "free love" movement was over. this was Kubrik's version of the future. I'm glad things didn't turn out that way. anyways you can't help but love Alex (Malcolm McDowell) even though he's a crazy violence loving sociopath, his charisma and charm will win you over.
