Sound weird, I know, but I don’t watch movie really often. I don’t go to the cinema, I seldom watch movie online and almost never watch television. I’m just lazy.
I also have always been not patient enough, yet I’m curious. That’s why I always googled the plot on Wikipedia to find out what happen and I was fine with just that.
But it always seems wrong somehow. Like, if I’m not even patient enough to watch a movie, what can I even do? Those few times I finish a good one, I constantly blame myself for missing gems like this.
So I start to watch movie almost everyday, like a must-do whenever I have free time. I was overwhelmed as the industry is so huge and I’m trying piece by piece, exploring my own taste, experimenting stepping out of my preference…
This list is updated as my experience with films got built up. These below are all amazing must-see movies that I can always watch again and totally recommend to anyone hasn’t watched them. So if you feel like you are in the mood for a movie, don’t hesitate to try one among these. Tested and approved!
