A beautiful and tragic story, the kind that is better to watch with some tissues. The casting in this movie is just incredible, it was what made it so unforgeable and powerful to me, the amazing performances of everyone present.

Into the Wild (2007)
The first time I saw it, it felt just like a very good story. The second time I did it, it had a greater impact on me, and I realized just how powerful and unforgettable is the amazing journey of the main character. Not the "wild" journey mind you, but the personal journey of self-discovery. If not for the amazing soundtrack which has become my favorite of all time, watch it for the amazing scenarios and dialogue.

12 Angry Men (1957)
One of the most amazingly well-crafted and most interesting movies I have ever had the pleasure to watch. A simple story with thrilling developments and groundbreaking performances from the entire cast. And Lumet's direction is simply phenomenal, never is the film boring in its entire run.

I've only heard good things about this movie and it was the only one from Clive Own's most popular movies I hadn't watched yet, and I must say... it completely caught me by surprise, especially when the story started picking up.

If there's a word to describe this movie (and it's hard to find a better movie to fit with that same word) it's breathtaking... this movie literally takes your breath away in some of its emotion-injecting scenes. The atmosphere is frightening real, it will immerse you into the movie and keep you on the edge of your seat in the final moments. A story with an incredibly real feeling of what could happen to humanity if it lost its innocence.

Braveheart (1995)
There's no denying the genius of Mel Gibson, he is one of my all-time favorite actors, but also a capable director. He knows how to make movies with heart, and this movie is so freaking powerful.

An incredible movie with superb gun-action in the inicial scene and final act. An incredibly powerful story with great, great performances by Jean Reno, young Natalie Portman and Gary Oldman. A character development trip, emotional through the ride.

Most complete and disturbing movie about the Vietnam which brings feelings of insanity and unpredictability not seen anywhere else. A difficult journey accompanied by an unforgettable soundtrack.

Gran Torino (2008)
Eastwood's most human story. Only him to make an old american patriot bastard likable and a very sympathetic character. The circumstances of life can really tell a lot about a person.

A heart-wrenching tale of a man who has long stopped living and just survives doing what he can for his family, that is until the arrival of someone special starts causing drastic changes to this man's life. Phenomenal story.

City of God (2002)
An incredible life story in a place where living can be a real trial. The characters are fantastically well done, the tragic moments painfully hard to watch and the entertainment value is aided by the surprising humour at times. A lesson of life.

Raging Bull (1980)
One of the most powerful performances of all time by the legend himself. The direction is perfect, Jake La Motta is one hell of a character, and together, De Niro and Scorsese deliver a kind of movie hardly seen now-a-days. Intense, real and scary, this film can really get to you.

2008 must be Eastwood's greatest year. Changeling and Gran Torino, very emotional and engaging stories.

Greatest cast I've seen in the 40's. The characters are flawed, but incredibly likable and the actors make them come to life with a contagious energy. In all honesty, there's no romantic comedy like this.

This movie was definitely the trigger for my passion for Jimmy Stewart.

Anyone who has someone in their family or someone close who suffers from alcoholism or even if you are an alcoholic yourself, I can't help but highly recommend this movie to you. Taking into account when it was made, the story is still very modern and incredibly powerful. I can strongly relate with this movie.

James Franco superb performance and the intensity of the whole thing did catch me off guard. I was not expecting the movie to be so graphic, and together with the realism of the story and strong emotions, it became the most memorable movie of a good year for movies.

If there's one thing about this movie that separates it from other war movies is that it has a 2-part story. On the one had, the first half explores the lives of the characters, their families and their habits. On the other hand, the second half shows the horrors of war, the changes within the character and how Vietnam destroyed their pre-war lives as they were.
