Are you a cinephile? If so, do you have a favorite movie you could watch every day without getting tired? Here are ten films the internet says never get old.
1. The Mummy (1999)
Before Brendan Fraser starred in Darren Arronofsky’s narrative drama, The Whale, the Canadian actor starred as Rick O’Connell in the epic mystery saga about reincarnation.
“Movies like this one just aren’t made anymore. Funny, adventurous, an element of romance—it was just fun. Not a lot of movies are fun now. It was like being on a Disney ride,” a Mummy fan expressed.
2. Starship Troopers (1997)
My best friend is obsessed with Starship Troopers. One time I begged her to come over to remove a bug from my house, as I have a case of Katsaridaphobia, and as soon as she pulled the insect, she instructed me to Starship Troopers and then left.
The futuristic film centers around a group of troopers tasked with destroying a species of alien insects determined to obliterate the human race. The anti-military and anti-fascism film holds up to satirical standards today.
3. The Fifth Element (1997)
This film is similar to Starship Troopers in that the characters team up to destroy an evil force set on destroying humanity. In The Fifth Element, every 5,000 years, an evil presence arises and tries to eradicate human existence.
“My first thought. It’s such a fun good-time movie, and the graphics are a little dated but still hold up great. The soundtrack is very unique. You don’t hear that kind of electric action dance music anymore,” a fan wrote.
4. Home Alone (1990)
I stand by the statement that Macaulay Culkin is among history’s most talented child actors. Home Alone presents an interesting premise where a spoiled child complains about his overbearing family and wishes they would disappear. When he wakes up the following day, he finds his wish granted. With the house to himself, he causes unrest and chaos until a duo of criminals shows up to rob the place.
5. Groundhog Day (1993)
Groundhog Day is a launching point for so many movies, particularly those in the horror genre. Groundhog Day stars Bill Murray as a grumpy weatherman who reports Groundhog Day each day. Soon, he learns that he is stuck in the same day and forced to live Groundhog Day over and over and over… and over.
6. Shrek (2001)
Lord Farquaad banishes a gaggle of fairy tale characters to an ogre’s swamp, disrupting his solitude. Shrek, the ogre, agrees to return the princess to Lord Farquaad if it means he gets his swamp back.
A few years ago, Saturday Night Live aired a skit claiming Shrek is the best-animated movie ever. Thousands agree. The hilarious fairy-tale satire provided a new avenue besides Disney for animation lovers. And Shrek introduced the world to Donkey, one of the best sidekicks in cinema history.
7. Ghostbusters (1984)
“Who you gonna call?” The original Ghostbusters, from 1984, centers around three professors who run in with a ghost. After getting fired, they take matters into their own hands, fight ghosts, and save New York City. Movie aficionados state that Ghostbusters is a perfect example of successful cinema.
8. The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (2008)
The Curious Case of Benjamin Button hurts. Benjamin ages backward. He enters the world as an older man and regresses to a child. Grab the tissues for this film featuring Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett.
9. The Lion King (1994)
I agree with this choice. The Lion King is a Disney film about Simba, a lion prince growing up with his family on a savanna. After his father dies in a wildebeest rush, Simba battles with his uncle to avenge his father’s death. The 1994 film won multiple Oscars for its stellar soundtrack and several awards for its innovative animation.
10. Stand By Me (1986)
The infamous Stand By Me is adapted from Stephen King’s novella, The Body. It stars River Phoenix, Corey Feldman, and Kiefer Sutherland. A group of boys recounts growing up together and the impact seeing a body for the first time had on their lives.
