My All-Time Favorite Movie #1: LOTR

It’s finally time to share my all-time favorite movie #1, which is none other than The Lord of the Rings (LOTR) trilogy. I suppose it wouldn’t be difficult to guess that looking at my love for trilogies generally. Based on the novel of J.R.R. Tolkier and directed by Peter Jackson The LOTR film series includes three epic fantasy films each of which is a master piece in its own right and their flawless continuity makes watching this trilogy a cinematic treat every single time.

My All-Time Favorite Movie #2: Schindler’s List

My all-time favorite movie #2 is Schindler’s List, which I believe is the finest of films in the history of film making to date.

Tolkien and directed by Peter Jackson, this series has an inspiring plot with some amazing new characters making it a pretty decent prequel to the original The Lord of the Rings (TLOR) trilogy.

My All-Time Favorite Movie #8

The Pianist is based on the memoir of a renowned Polish-Jewish pianist and composer Wladyslaw Szpilman, who was a Holocaust survivor. It is a moving portrayal of a horrifying and agonizing true story with some outstanding direction by Roman Polanski. Though it is not a typical war film and is reasonably slow paced compared to other films on World War II, but for me it was Adrien Brody’s performance that makes it so unforgettable.
