Check out these 16 incredibly creative posters of some of the most popular Hollywood movies:
- The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
A film Directed by David Fincher tells the story of Benjamin Button, a man who starts aging backward with bizarre consequences. A rare film that keeps the realism intact while still sustaining the magic of it. The screenplay by Eric Roth is excellent.
2. Fight Club:
Another masterpiece by David Fincher (although it bombed at the box office). Fight Club presents the vast emptiness of modern existence- ridden as it is with shallow values, rampant consumerism, empty of meaning, feeling and life itself- in a slick and ironically consumer oriented fashion. The script was tight, the theme fascinating, the acting incredible (especially Edward Norton), the direction inspired, and the cinematography stunning.
3 Cast Away
Directed by Robert Zemeckis is a story of a FedEx executive who must transform himself physically and emotionally to survive a crash landing on a deserted island. Fun Fact: This movie led to the creation of the popular TV series LOST.
5. Black Swan
This film is at the height of what it means to be true art in cinema. A brilliant piece of film by Darren Aronofsky.
6. Dallas Buyers Club
A raw, gritty, and incredible true story about a HIV diagnosed man who went to extraordinary lengths to survive at a time when the AIDS epidemic was at it’s worst. Fun Fact: Dallas Buyers Club took only 25 days to shoot.
7. Django Unchained
Django Unchained is Tarantino’s first look at the Western genre, his first attempt at it and he executed it beautifully. The scenes were shot perfectly alongside an amazing soundtrack as well as his own small cameo.
8. The Great Gatsby
Baz Luhrmann’s “The Great Gatsby,” is fairly accurate to the classic novel and keeps most of its themes intact. However, Luhrmann’s own flair adds a new dimension to the story. Visually this film is incredibly stunning. From grand sets to the detailed period dresses, this film is a treat for the eyes. The direction in this film is impeccable. The cinematography is marvelous and really lets the viewer absorb the sheer artistry that has gone into making this film.
9. The Good, the Bad and the Ugly
The quintessential spaghetti Western! Leone did a great job with the camera direction in this movie and the acting is impressive. Eastwood, Van Cleef, and Wallach are absolutely fantastic.
An outstanding film and makes its mark for its cinematography, the music, the story, but above all the overall atmosphere. Amélie explores the trivial things in life and makes us realize that our lives are so simple and we only need the simplest of things to keep us happy.
11. Into the Wild
This is a movie of real beauty. It’s based on a true story of Christopher McCandless who after his graduation abandoned his possessions, gave his entire savings account to charity, and hitchhiked to Alaska to live in the wilderness.
12. Requiem for a Dream
This movie shows the brutal honest side of addiction and over-indulgence. Director Darren Aronofsky shines in his brilliant direction and style, in this depiction of the downward spiral of the lives of four people, living with their respective addictions.
Coming from a formulaic genre, Southpaw is a bit cliché, but it inevitably brings powerful performances and a promising storyline
The movie, “Se7en”, starring Brad Pitt, Morgan Freeman, and Gwyneth Paltrow is a Modern Masterpiece! Andrew Kevin Walker (Screenplay) has taken the subject of the Seven Deadly Sins, and he puts a great new twist on these themes.The performances in this movie are outstanding. This film from start to finish is a well produced and directed film.
15. The Shawshank Redemption
A classic piece of unforgettable filmmaking . Shawshank encompasses friendships, hardships, hopes, and dreams. And what is so great about the movie is that it moves you, it gives you hope.
Most people think that this film is “overrated” or “over-hyped, ” but if you are a 90’s kid, then there is a very high probability that you must have watched this fictional love story on the historical setting of the Titanic at least once.
